    I mean have Perea and Jurkin really shown anything to demonstrate they deserve more playing time?

    It's obviously disappointing that Perea and Jurkin haven't developed more, but do you really want them out there right now that much more than Jeff Howard?

    Crean's always been such a stalwart about earning playing time in practice. It doesn't make much sense to assert that if you can't back it up as a coach. It especially doesn't make sense to assert it if you aren't going to back it up even when the scholarship players are not likely to play better than the walk-ons who are likely practicing better.
    In Perea's case, heck yes in some cases.

    I witnessed the Northwestern debacle firsthand, and while Howard entered the game and played meaningful minutes shutting down Drew Crawford in the process and allowing IU to get back in the game, that particular game against a much smaller opponent just screamed play Noah and HMP together.

    The recent Duke/Syracuse game illustrated one textbook method of attacking the 2/3 zone and the same principles apply to attacking a packing-it-in defense....High - Low sets, which I've already outlined in a previous post. Also, by having both NV and HMP on the floor at same time, you virtually guarantee a weak side shot-blocking threat and on an offensively challenged team that needs to create offense from defense, improving interior defense-- and defense as whole -- even slightly could go a long way.

    Re: Indiana Basketball

    Could we have a game where we don't turn the ball over 67 times?

    I haven't checked them, but I'm fairly certain that IU's first half/second half splits in the B1G -- turnovers, shooting percentage, etc -- are putrid, especially on the road.

    Thankfully, I was working and missed that game. My Dad, however, attended that game with a friend and Jared Jeffries, who is now a scout for the Nuggets just happened to be sitting right next to my Dad.

    No doubt. At the very least @Nebraska and @Minnesota looked exactly the same.

    No positive spin at all. But I've got to tip my hat to Penn State and Patrick Chambers, the man can coach.
