    Indiana Basketball Continued AGAIN

    Per the mods instructions to start a new thread.

    Pleased with the win last night.
    As much as anything it was valuable because a loss would have been SO devastating. Not that losing to Iowa is anything to cry over, but it would have meant IU was facing a 3 game losing streak in East Lansing, and an absolute MUST WIN against Nebraska at home next week.

    There's just something about that Cornhusker's squad that gives me the heebie jeebies. Especially when they've already won on the road at Michigan State.

    But nothing to worry about now. Hold serve at home, beat Illinois on the road and you're 14-4, likely no worse than 2nd in the B1G.

    Yes it is. With Maryland and Iowa losing this is important. Also, I think this game will go a long way in determining IU's seeding come tourney time!

    That was impressive. Purdue's good. You knew they'd make a run. And they did. I think last year, or the year before they'd blow that game.

    And at the risk of getting a bunch of crap flung my way....I think Crean has done an amazing coaching job this year. Compare this team to the Duke game. It's not even the same team.

    Interesting comments. Ones that I cant disagree with whatsoever.

    IU has finally started playing defense. I really feel the reason for this is OG and Morgan getting major minutes.

    I just hope they keep it going.

    I agree about OG and Morgan. Also, I think they realized they were going to lose a lot of games if they didn't get it together. Also makes you wonder if Crean had the team prepared to begin the season! I think coach has done an excellent job this year, still not a fan of his X's and O's, but his sub patterns has been tolerable and the team as a whole has progressed. Now if he could just get Troy to play the way he did last night every game. He was diving for balls and all over the court. Good win last night!!!

    Crean has been outstanding and it hurts me a little to say it. I have been saying he needs to be let go since the debacle against syracuse in '13. This team looks primed for a deep run. I think a 4 seed is reasonable and if things break well these next couple weeks they could play as high as a 2 seed. With the way this year started, im shocked. Also, after the Duke implosion i put $20 on IU to win it all at +14000 on a whim. Lets go Hoosiers! Papa needs one of those fancy robot vacuums.

    Re: Indiana Basketball Continued AGAIN

    I might have touched on this in the old thread, but CTC imo has changed this year. He is not afraid to sit the "Bad Troy" down and I loved it when he called a TO just to chew on Yogi's arsz. I am still not a fan of his substitution patterns or his half court offense sets.

    In the Bengals thread I made the analogy of six sided die to replace Marvin Lewis. In that analogy, 1 side is definitely better, 2 sides are about the same & 3 sides are markedly worse.

    I'm starting to think of Crean in a similar vein. It's probably closer to 2 sides better, 2 sides about the same long term(but with an initial drop off) and 2 sides that are markedly worse.

    Rumors have it that RoJo will be a game time decision against the Illini. I suspect he will miss the game.

    If that's the only game he has to miss, I would be thrilled. Much more important to have him for Iowa and Maryland.
