    Actually we agree on pretty much every point.
    I agree the record does not tell the whole story and, although it was not clear, my reference of the 9-11 conf record was not how I meant to define the season. What I meant by mentioning 9-11 was after three years I can see why there is some restlessness and think we are getting beyond saying people have “right now” attitudes because he is going into his fourth (not first or second) season. 
    I’m looking forward to next year, especially if we can consistently play (ie show up) the way we did the last 4 regular season games. Although we went 1-3 it was a four game stretch of playing hard, with less TO’s, better defense, the offense getting a lot of good shots (but missing a ton of bunnies),  fewer 30 foot hedges by our big men, seeing that Race and Hunter “belong”, etc. ie...it was encouraging in spite of the record. 
    I think the “changing of the guard” from a player leadership perspective will be a big positive but am still a bit concerned about our offense on the perimeter. Would sure like to see a couple of consistent outside threats to help open up TJD underneath.

    DChoosier got a reaction from jk34 in Yea or Nay: give seniors another year of eligibility?   
    No. 
    Freshmen, Sophomores and Juniors all lost the same amount of time/opportunity as the seniors. Should we also give all of them another year?
    Students on merit/academic scholarships are also losing out on things. Should we give them their scholarships for another year?

    This sucks but sometimes life is not fair and people have to climb over hurdles and move on.

    It was stupid for him to go to the game.
    I read somewhere (and have no idea if it is true) that he had food poisoning. If that’s correct at least he is not infectious (cvirus, strep or flu).

    The NBA game was cancelled a minute before tip-off.
    My guess is that they are meeting now and the cancellation will happen before noon tomorrow (if not late tonight).

    I agree. Many were pissed that he was not a great player but he never had “great player” talent. I was just glad he gutted it out during some tough years.

    And this is the 4th year in a row in which we did not have better than a .500 record in the Big Ten. The last time that happened was during the 1930-1934 seasons.

    Not true. Go back and watch. He was first raked across the face by Ruevers and then fell back and was hit again by Durham.

    It was the rake by Ruevers that dislodged him and allowed him to grab the rebound and put it back up for the bucket and a foul. All of which happened AFTER he hit Race in the face.

    Sincerely, something needs to be done about the tv timeouts in college basketball. One play, sandwiched in between ten minutes of commercials is ridiculous and is beginning to take away from the enjoyment of watching games.

    I'm to the point where I just want to see us win a game. For some reason, we suck in the B1G tourney. When's the last time we won a game there! And it's usually in Indy or Chicago, where we have terrific fan bases. 
    Last year's game still chaps my a$$ -- after a relatively mediocre regular season, with our Quad 1 wins, we had a still chance to play our way into the NCAAs with a B1G win or two. And we totally didn't show up against OSU. Well, not until the final five minutes or so. 
    That game and this season's Toiletmakers game at home -- when RMK returned -- are the most disappointed I've been in this team during Archie's tenure. I don't even care about getting humiliated by Indiana State or Fort Wayne. The OSU tourney game and the PU game at home really, really meant something -- and we just didn't show up. Acted as if we didn't even care.

    DChoosier got a reaction from Alford Bailey in IU at Illinois Game Thread 03/01 2 PM BTN   
    On Dan Dak’s show Fish said that in some games the network controls the replay and in others the school does. In the Illinois game it was Illinois personnel that controlled the replay for this game.
    Fish went on to say that he could see the replay monitor and that it showed the elbow being thrown but when the refs came over to take a look the UI employee (or whoever UI pays to run it) showed the refs the replay three times but each time stopped before the elbow was thrown. The refs asked if there was anything else to see and the replay guy said no. Fish was beside himself and the refs never saw the elbow. That dude needs to be fired. 
    I hope IU takes this to the league.
    Missing a call is one thing. Purposely hiding what happened is an entirely different deal.
