  1. Battle of bad shooting, turnovers, and defense - Purdue: 57 IU: 50
  2. I'd prefer to see our "captains" Green and Durham stay on the bench tonight.
  3. I completely agree. This team is done and has been since losing to Maryland. Listless performance. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app
  4. What a **** @$$ performance. Knight is back for the first time in 20 years and this is our repayment. I just can’t with Archie and his teams anymore Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    This 100%! It doesn't take a multi-million dollar coach to see the fatal flaws of poor offense.

    Just watched Kansas take the win over Texas Tech and right after, Bruce Pearl’s pregame pep talk aired and man, we need that guy or a guy like that. I’m sick and tired of the Miller era already Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    The future is bright. Help is on the way. Archie's going to do great things. He brings out the best in his players. [FACE PALM] I drank the kool aid when he was hired but I just don't see anything changing for the better with him at the helm. We've seen almost 3 full seasons and at least with Crean we won a couple conference titles and underachieved in the tournament. Pretty sad that I'd like to go back to those days.

    IUBB vs Penn St 1/29 8:30 pm BTN

    The coaching staff cared more about being all matchy matchy in burgundy and navy than getting the team ready to play. Ostrom must not have a navy suit.

    Just have to shake my head in disbelief. I truly believed Archie was a great hire based on his inside/out recruiting and touting defense and toughness. Soooo, why aren't we seeing things beyond getting Indiana guys to commit? Obviously it's lack of player development. I hope whoever ends up being the new AD gets an earful and we end up getting a coach who can actually do the job and not make empty promises.
  10. Knight - It was time to go. Past his prime and just an assbag. Not a great exit strategy by the admin obviously. Davis - Out of his league. But the ride to the championship in 02 where we beat Sampson's OU team was amazing. Nothing after obviously. Sampson - Cheated his way on a much smaller scale than the scandals of today but IU got the hammer and probably fired him too quickly. A lot of promise with him, his recruiting, and how the team played. Not a hire I was expecting or a fan of at first, given his phone call issue at OU but his coaching proved to be the best we'd seen in a long time. Crean - Inherited a complete dumpster fire. Felt bad for him the first 2 years. We got teased into thinking we were better than we were in the good years, only to be left disappointed and in the years I expected nothing, it either transpired or a miraculous Big Ten championship occurred. Not a great coach. Miller - I can see some Sampson coaching prowess in him but just not to his caliber. I hope he's able to turn it around but I'll believe it when I see it. Moral of the story, the sky fell a loooooooong time ago. Most of us are just holding onto false hopes of returning to blue chip status because we've been teased by it with the last 3 coaches, only to be left disappointed. Still a fan but I'll get off the ledge and just accept mediocrity from here until I'm proven wrong.

    Purdue at Indiana Game Thread - 7:00pm ESPN2

    Yay for moral victories and losing a Bo Ryan Wisky type of game by 2 at home to your rival. For the love of all, it's come to moral victories with this team and just thankful when they play hard. Meh.

    Tech help

    Ha. I did. But I could barely see the little camera icon to click on it just the right way on my phone.

    Tech help

    So in light of the dumpster fire of year 2 with Archie, anyone know how to change the profile pic on the iPhone app? I went into Settings and can’t seem to find a way. I gotta get Archie off my profile. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Inclined to Give Archie a Break

    I agree with your roster assessment however, Archie hasn’t shown the willingness or knowledge to play to his teams strength which to me is as much as I hated it, Crean’s run & gun no defense philosophy. This is a different team when allowed to push tempo and attack Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    Game Thread: Purdouche Edition

    This season is in a tailspin. I didn’t see this collapse coming from the team we saw in November and December. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners
