Thank you sir. Again as we were discussing at the end of the last thread, tonight's game is important simply because it's one they can't afford to lose. If IU is to go 8-1 or 7-2 at home, which is certainly within the realm of possibility, then it would only need to go 4-5 on the road. The Hoosiers already have 1 road win, but after tonight, its hard to pick out any specific games I'd feel comfortable picking with any certainty that IU wins on the road.
I read earlier in the year that the Big 10 is not that strong top to bottom. The way conference play is going, it looks like a very balanced league, with some very good teams struggling on the road. Michigan State has lost two in a row on the road, Ohio State has lost two road games. I think the league is stronger than first thought, with some teams improving that once looked like also rans.
By the way traderumor, I meant to respond to your comment about my blog post taking pot shots at other programs but the thread got carried away. If that's the way it came off, it honestly wasn't my intent. As you and others pointed out, Indiana fans sometimes have a holier than thou attitude about our basketball.
The point of the post was that if IU's fan base is in fact better than other fan bases, fans shouldn't be ready to give a senior the boot just because there is more talent coming through.
The pot shots at Notre Dame and Kentucky were 1)fun and 2) meant to show some negative perceptions of those fan bases that IU fans didn't want to become known for.
Looks like the Bucks will be in for another road tussle Saturday
We are in trouble.
Horrible loss. Just horrible. I'm disgusted.
Both of IU's great wins were at home. I don't know how the committee will view those two wins as opposed to the poor losses.
FWIW I think IU is playing just about the way I thougth they would. They are a high teens to low 20ish ranked team. Not as good as they were ranked but not as bad as they are looking now.
They're still learning to win on the road. Nebraska is a bad loss, for sure, but they're gonna still be somewhat volatile throughout this season.
I don't have any doubts about Crean. This team will still make the tourney and as stated above probably finish the season ranked anywhere from 15-25.
