    Not sure what I think anymore. There's too much talent on this Hoosier team to lose to a crap team like Nebraska.

    That second half is one of the worst halves of basketball I've forced myself to sit through.

    Think about what you just typed. Plus, they looked bad last night. IU played like pure poop last night.

    I mean it. We aren't better than they are, we aren't above them. Not this year. Looking down on them just because "they are Nebraska" is the mentality of another school down south who thinks college basketball would cease to exist without them. We are better than that.

    As a Purdue fan, let me just say it could be worse, i.e. No offense+No defense+underachieving talent=Purdue right now. Throw in nobody really "working hard" and I am left with one of the weirdest experiences I have ever had. At least IU fans can tune in consistently and watch a pretty good player in Yogi. The Big Ten is just completely bizarre this year.

    Re: Indiana Basketball

    We can talk about inexperience, turnovers, substitution patterns all we want, but, IMO, this post from another board is spot-on.

    The reason IU is not so good this year relates directly to what has happened before and during the season - most of it unexpected. I call it Crean's "7 Sorrows:"
    1) Cody left early (expected)
    2) Vic left early (unexpected at the time of his recruitment)
    3) Remy Abell left (unexpected; would have played a ton this year)
    4) Maurice Creek left (unknown if this was expected; would have eventually become a starter)
    5) Luke Fischer left (unexpected)
    6) Will Sheehey failure to emerge as a scorer (unexpected)
    7) JH failure to emerge as starter/scorer (unexpected)

    Yes, every team has difficulties, injuries, transfers, etc. However, the large number that hit IU has been too much to overcome. Anytime 5 players leave, you are in trouble as there is a lot of collective knowledge about running the system. Three of the players were decent outside shooters (now clear that we needed at least one to stay). With both Cody and Luke gone, there is no real center. And, odds were that at least WS or JH would emerge (bad luck I guess).

    Agree with those 7. Add to them Hanner Mosquera-Perea's inability to develop any game at all.

    Creek was "Creened" he didn't leave unexpectedly. Creen did not recruit any shooters, this is an NIT team at best
    I was in the ORG once, best 6 months of my life.

    Since I'm so rarely accurate in my predictions, I like to point out the relatively few instances when I turn out correct.

    When Painter was courted by Mizzou, and eventually turned it down, I thought he and Purdue were both going to regret it.

    I'm happy that Creek is doing well at GW, but it certainly sounds like, much like Matt Roth, he was "Creaned"; both were/are losses to their respective teams, as you can never have too many shooters. To that end, Etherington and Hartman were/are reputed to be shooters, but rarely look for their shot.

    Shooters arrive next year, but the Million dollar question -- admittedly, way too early to speculate -- is whether or not Vonleh returns.

    Does it matter is Vonleh comes back? With or without him they are still not Big "10" or National title contenders.

    I disagree strongly that they're not B1G contenders with Vonleh next year. I wouldn't say they're likely to be favored, but that will be a good deep team next year if Noah comes back.
