    I thought the defensive intensity from UK was like night and day first half to second.

    What about the call that fouled out Darius Miller? Phantom call if I've ever seen one.
    I'm not saying you won because of the officials. UK was just better, but they got away with more than IU did. You did get that favorable whistle at home.

    I agree we got a favorable whistle overall. When the UK offense is firing on all cylinders, however, you should see three things: 1) Layups/Attacking the rim 2) Free throws 3) Open 3s.

    I wasn't sure if Crean was the man for the job at IU, to be honest. After seeing him and his team today live for 40 minutes for the first time this season, I am much more of a believer. He is a quality coach and obviously the recruiting is coming around. He is getting maximum potential from his team, IMO.

    I really like Hulls.

    Yeah, I think he is getting the most out of their talent.

    Ultimately the score ended up where I thought it would but I thought Kentucky's flurry would come at the start of the second half. Earlier in the thread I meant Lamb when I said Jones. I thought the IU guards would struggle with guarding Knight and Lamb, but it was really Liggins and Knight that gave them the problems.

    Yeah, we've gotta let you guys have one every now and then.

    Still too early to look at 2012 though. Players move up and down the rankings by then and some of the commitments don't stick (like Louisville's class last year). Purvis will though, unless Tim Fuller somehow leaves between now and then.

    Weird. I thought I had posted in either this one or the other one, but apparantly not. Didn't want WMR to think I was ducking him though.
    IU's about 75-80% of the way there, which showed tonight because they hung with UK for about 75-80% of the game.

    I said before that absent a win, this game wouldn't tell us anything about the Hoosiers. Coming close really doesn't make a big difference, and if IU loses to any of the remaining out of conference teams, any good feelings will be nullified.
    Last year IU sandwiched its two "best losses"(At Illinois 72-70, Vs. Purdue 78-75) with two of its ugliest losses (at home to Iowa by 15 and at Northwestern by 17.)

    Still if we take anything positive out of it, Christian Watford played great against legitimate big men. If he can legitimately play the four, the team is 10x better than last year.

    I had decided that it would only be fair to give Creek through the pre-conference schedule to 1) Trust his knee and 2) Incorporate himself into the flow of the offense better. He and VJIII both take bad shots at times, but a lot of that has to do with the fact that the offense at various points in their careers has been "4 guys stand around and watch VJIII or Maurice do something."

    For IU fans of any length, this is what we call the "Bracey offense."
    When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.

    On a side note, Matt Jones has left KSR to become a writer for CBS Sports. Thomas Beisner is now the head. I've always enjoyed Beisner and Drew Franklin's writings over there and always thought Jones was trying for nothing more than to make a name for himself.
