    Default ACC/Big Ten Challenge

    Crappy Minnesota blew what was considered a gimme game for the Big Ten last night, making this an uphill battle for the Big Ten here. In the early going, Iowa and Northwestern looking good tonight. Iowa might be a tough out this year for the Hoosiers and Boilers. I pegged them as a pushover at the beginning of the year.

    Dude if Iowa is playing well it is just a refreshing change of pace. They are a push over. Easily the worst team in this league.

    I jinxed them. They blew their huge lead and are now down 4 with 4 to go against Wake. I hope they win. It looks like the B10 will get Ws from Northwestern and Ohio State tonight. Hopefully the Illini (sickens me to say that) beat UNC tonight.

    So I was thinking does anyone else think they should play the Big Ten/ACC challenge at two neutral sites over the course of a weekend? Wouldn't that make it feel more conference vs. conference?

    Like you'd play 5 games at Conseco Fieldhouse and 6 games at the Bobcat's arena or something, paint the court with the conference logo and do it over the course of a Saturday and Sunday. Wouldn't that be awesome?

    I don't know, I kinda like it the way it is. ACC/Big Ten Challenge games are always big on campus. When I was at IU I remember we got Duke to play at Assembly Hall, and it was crazy. That was the year we had Kilingsworth and Monroe, and it is still to this day the coolest sporting event I've ever been to--and IU even lost the game. Killingsworth's dunk to put IU ahead in the second half nearly brought the house down, literally. I thought the balcony was going to fall down. Anyways, neutral sites get their love during conference tournaments and the NCAAs. On campus games like this are neat.

    Good luck to IU tomorrow, but obviously I hope my boys from Chestnut Hill get the W. Judging by how they've played recently, though, they won't.

    If the Hoosiers win tonight, I'll be very, very impressed and consider it as a sign that we are well ahead of schedule.

    I like it the way it is. There's too many neutral site games. Going to a good team's arena and losing isn't a big deal, but if you do and win it really helps your stock come tourney time.

    I guess, I just don't get the conference vs. conference feel as much as I would at a neutral site. Still just feels like schools vs. schools.

    Also having to "root" for Illinois last night was vomit worthy.

    I attended that game as well. That one moment (Killingsworth's dunk) was, without a doubt, the loudest experience I've ever had at any sporting event.

    Hoosiers looked completely shell shocked that 1st half.

    Not having Guy eligible is going to kill us. BC must have had 10 offensive rebounds or more in that first half.

    Also you're complaining about the offense? The defense has been at least 10 times worse, and the rebounding has been ten times worse than that.

    You get the sense that if we just settle down a little bit we can beat this team.

    The offense is so stagnant. Always. It just bothers me. Creek's shots are embarrassingly bad tonight. Not even close most of the time. Wonder what his deal is.

    Creek's still coming back. The lift on his jumper is not all the way there and he's trying to overcompensate with arm movement and all his shots are coming off like shotput tosses. Need to keep run the pick and roll, BC is struggling like hell at defending that.

    We really need to make it a team effort on the boards. Expecting Watford and Pritchard to do it by themselves is a recipe for failure.

    Verdell should have to spend an entire practice shooting free throws.

    Hoosier nation is well represented there tonight, there's no doubt about that. Oladipo's dunk just got a huge cheer.

    Also, Oladipo is gonna be a stud two way player. He's built in the mold of the guys that just end up becoming stars at Michigan State.
