    IUBB @ Minnesota - Wednesday, 1/25/23 @ 9:00 ET on BTN

    TJD is the still the whole story. Without him IU is a bad team. There appears to be other talent, but it's inconsistent, so undependable. Lots of flashes of potential, but only one guy to count on. I was hoping we were finally past that this year, but here we are.

    How far away is IUBB from being elite again?

    Saw this picture of a Ukranian soldier and it obviously caught my eye. Maybe IU has a secret elite military unit we don't know about?

    Epic bad call. B1G refs deliver for Purdoo.

    Huskers have had 672 chances to take control of this game. Purdue D has been poor.

    "Bitter beer face" is 15-20yrs old too.

    Agree about the guards, not sure they look like the best, but much better than I hoped/expected. Having said that, last year they were number 1 before Purdooing their pants later in the year. Check back in March.

    I agree. I think Deion coulda held out for a better option than Colorado, but still a dramatically deeper pool than Jackson State.

    IUBB vs Nebraska - Wednesday, 12/7/22 @ 8:30 on BTN

    Is it just coincidence that XJ has melted down the 2 games that JHS is out? Obviously, that wasn't an excuse last season, but jarring to see such a change from the first 7 games to the last 2. Unforced TO's, silly fouls, forcing everything. Very odd.

    IUBB @ Rutgers - Saturday, 12/3/22 @ 4:00 on BTN

    This seemed so typical of recent vintage teams. No shame losing to a good team on the road. Rutgers is a nice team, but not NEARLY as good as IU made them look. IU looked disinterested other than a couple of brief spurts. TJD, XJ everyone but Kopp really were an embarrassment today. Consider my expectations considerably lowered for this season and prepared for another middle of the conference finish and a #7 seed.
  11. LOVE this. Not sure why but a little surprised to see JBJ, pleased though.
  12. Does Chris Mack ever blink? Never heard of John Fanta, but he looks like the guy I see whenever I'm at Kohl's.

    (2019) PF Trayce Jackson-Davis to INDIANA

    That was in 2 seasons!! Hope Trayce climbs all these lists. Great all-around player.
  14. Yeah, if last night didn't make that clear the previous several games should have. UNC has some individual talent for sure: Bacot, Nance & Love? That is an impressive trio...but they are a poor team currently. I suspect they will get it sorted out, like last year, but very flawed right now. Love reminds me a bit of Devonte Green. Can go off for 30 or shoot you right out of a game.
