    Their defense isn't terrible, I think they should play man to man more often with the athletes that they have, but they generally do a good job in the zone (except against Illinois). It's the offense that bothers me, it was a little better today, they moved the ball a little more, but it was still a lot of street ball style.
    I guess I worded it wrong, JMV talks about it all the time. The "offense" they run is absolutely terrible IMO.

    Congrats on the win today, Hoosiers. DJ was a beast. Buckeyes too young and methinks ever moreso too generally out-of-sync this year. Man it was a cold walk from the Varsity CLub to the Schott today. Felt like it was 30 below!

    I agree with you on the defense. I wish they would play more man but the zone seems to be working OK for the most part.

    The offense can get painful to watch at times. No discipline and little movement most of the time. Three pretty big home games coming up against Wisconsin, Michigan State, and Purdue.

    I'll tell ya one thing, I'll be following Jordan Crawford's career with great interest. This kid has got a heck of a lot of growing up and maturing to do on the basketball court... great talent, no question about it.

    I've probably watched more Indiana games than any other team this year after UK (all of UK's games). Love me some ESPN Full Court.

    No doubt. He could be a very good player with a little maturity. He's as undiscplined as it gets right now but the kid definitely has major talent.

    Re: Hoosier Hoops

    BLOOMINGTON, Indiana (Ticker) -- The career of Indiana senior guard A.J. Ratliff appears to be over.

    Hoosiers coach Kelvin Sampson said Tuesday that Ratliff, who has played in only nine games this season, would not return to the team due to personal reasons.

    "Both of us agreed that it was in his best interests to focus on himself and to work through his personal issues," Sampson said in a statement released by the school. "We wish him the best."

    Ratliff missed the first 10 games of the season after being declared academically ineligible and sat out three additional games due to an ankle injury.

    "A.J. is going through a lot of personal issues that are bigger than anything he has ever faced before," Stephanie Gilbert, Ratliff's legal guardian, told the Indianapolis Star.

    "We completely support the university in how they've tried to help A.J. as well as everything coach Sampson has done for him."

    Gilbert did not identify the nature of Ratliff's personal issues.

    Ratliff did not play in Sunday's 59-53 win at Ohio State, the second straight contest he missed. After that game, Sampson said Ratliff's issues did not involve academics or a legal matter.

    Ratliff's average dropped from 9.3 points per game as a junior to just 1.7 this season. He finished his Indiana career with a 5.8 scoring average in 93 games, including 39 starts.

    Nope. Not many people are surprised by it because he's been struggling academically and (I guess) emotionally all year. He certainly has had an unfortunate college career- first the supremely awful Mike Davis and now a coach who he really doesn't seem to connect with. A coworker has friends close to the program who may find something out. If I hear anything I'll post it here.

    Indiana gets list of alleged violations related to phone calls


    The NCAA sent a notice of allegations to Indiana University last Friday detailing major violations in the men's basketball program, multiple sources told ESPN.com.

    Larry MacIntyre, assistant vice president for university communications at Indiana University, confirmed to ESPN.com that the school did receive documentation from the NCAA last week.

    The Associated Press reported on Tuesday night that the school will make the allegations public on Wednesday. University trustees president Stephen Ferguson told AP that school officials this week reviewed the report, but that the NCAA is not expected to make its ruling until this summer.

    "There won't be a hearing till this June," Ferguson told AP. "It's just been reviewed, and I think everyone is analyzing it now."

    MacIntyre said he was unable to provide any more information. But MacIntyre said he was working on providing a copy of the documentation in a request made by ESPN.com through the Freedom of Information Act.

    But ESPN.com has learned over the last week that the NCAA uncovered new information since Indiana self-reported violations under second-year head coach Kelvin Sampson in October.

    Sampson had been sanctioned after making impermissible phone calls while he was the coach at Oklahoma. Indiana then revealed more bad calls while Sampson was at IU. Multiple sources told ESPN.com that the NCAA was looking into whether Sampson did not tell the truth about those calls, resulting in the allegations of major violations.

    This new information that helped result in a major violations tag could put the season of Indiana (No. 12 ESPN/USA Today, No. 13 AP) under a cloud of uncertainty and the career of Sampson as well.

    ESPN.com made multiple efforts to reach Indiana athletic director Rick Greenspan over the past week and he never returned calls. Sampson didn't return a message Tuesday.

    Indiana will have 90 days to respond to the letter. The committee on infractions has a hearing in April, but because of the 90-day window the hearing isn't expected to take place until the June meeting. That means Indiana may not have closure on the matter until late into the summer.

    "The report came out in October, the university filed its response and there's really not been anything happening [on the board] in the last five months," Ferguson told AP. "There have not been any discussions."

    A postseason ban for the Hoosiers would only come into play if IU decided to self-impose such a measure since the committee on infractions won't meet until June. According to multiple sources, a postseason ban would only occur if there were an issue with the eligibility of any current student athletes, which ESPN.com has been told isn't an issue yet.

    The NCAA investigation came after Indiana made an announcement in October that Sampson had made 100 impermissible phone calls while he was on probation for illicit calls he made while he was the coach at Oklahoma from 2000 to 2006. During that time, he made 577 impermissible calls.

    Sampson was penalized by Oklahoma by not being allowed to travel for recruiting. Indiana imposed the same penalty in his first season at IU. He was also banned from making calls and going off campus to recruit for a calendar year. He wasn't banned from text messaging since it was allowed during that year. But it was during that year that he made the impermissible calls.

    Sampson wasn't allowed to take part in three-way calls, originated by anyone on the staff. In October, Indiana made public that former assistant Rob Senderoff initiated three-way calls. During the October news conference, Indiana said that Sampson said he was unaware he was participating on a three-way call. Senderoff, who was forced to resign, said he didn't let Sampson know he was on a three-way call, either. Prior to being forced out, Senderoff was told he couldn't recruit off campus for a year or make a phone call. The same restriction was put on Dan Dakich, who has since been moved up to an assistant position from director of basketball operations.

    Sampson was hit with more penalties by the school, forfeiting a $500,000 raise, and a scholarship was taken away from the team.

    Thanks Kelvin. Indiana and the Big Ten don't work this way. I know Jim O'brien did something incredibly stupid when he gave money to a kid that wasn't ever going to play at Ohio State. At least he got cleared though. Sampson is just dirty. Everyone knows how much pride Indiana took in it's program being clean. I don't think Kelvin Sampson lasts past this year.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    He is going to get fired and probably never get a good coaching job again. Honestly he had a second chance and he did the same dumb thing. I don't have much sympathy for that.
