    Either that or win two of the next three -- especially if they win in Ann Arbor -- and win two games in the B1G tournament.

    IIRC, Delray's problems stemmed as much from an inability to play man-to-man defense at all than anything.

    Following a Sweet Sixteen upset of then-top ranked, star-studded UNC by Alford and the kiddie corps and unexpected appearance in the Elite 8 in '84, Delray Brooks was supposed to be the player to possibly push the Hoosiers over the top. Alas, as we all know, that didn't happen, as the '85 team was a major disappointment -- IMO, the most disappointing IU season given the expectations in my lifetime -- for several reasons.

    One another prominent side memory involving Delray Brooks: Nobody gave anyone a chance against his Michigan City Rogers HS school, but Assembly Hall's Warsaw Tigers pulled it off, winning the '84 State Championship, which I remember well because it was during my HS sophomore year that my school, which no longer exists, fell to Warsaw in the Semi-State that year.

    I think they have to win the final 3 games to have a chance, wouldn't hurt to win a B10 tourney game or 2. I don't see it happening, but its possible I guess.

    I completely agree on the '84-'85 team. They actually went into Ann Arbor and spanked the Wolverines by I believe 30 points in their first B1G game of that year. IU was ranked in the Top Ten and everything seemed right. At the end of the year Michigan was ranked #2 and the Hoosiers ended up with a NIT bid. Just pitiful.

    BTW Blue, I remember your Elmhurst Trojans well!
    ...and this one belongs to the Reds.

    It would be great to win all three. But winning 2 of 3 IMO puts them squarely on the bubble seeing as who their opponents are.

    How big is that Penn State loss now?

    Very well might be. It is the one that got away. But the egg they laid at home against Northwestern doesn't help either. At the time the Illinois loss didn't look bad...but now it does, IU should have won that one. To be honest, they should be 9-6 right now instead of 6-9. That would translate into a 19-9 overall record and a lock in the tournament. Just pitiful.

    Re: Indiana Basketball

    At this point, barring conference tournament results, it is highly doubtful that any school from the state of Indiana qualifies for the NCAA tourney.

    That's unheard of.

    It last happened in 2005 and the year before only Valpo went to the tourney.
    I was in the ORG once, best 6 months of my life.

    IIRC, IU lost their first NIT game at home in '05. The '04 team was a disaster, with a losing record, IIRC. At the time, I thought that the state of the program couldn't get any worse. How wrong I was.

    If IU can manage to beat Ohio State today and win at least 1 or 2 B10 tourney games, I think they still have a shot at getting in. If IU wins today, they will have beaten a lot of quality teams.

    They may be right, but I think a win today and a strong showing in the tourney could be enough. Gotta finish out the game today though.
