    Gardner-Webb blows. We look the same as we have the other four games: much more talented than our patsy opponent.

    It almost feels like old times again, routing everyone we should.

    I'm glad we have a few real games coming up, because we have proven we can beat the hell out of these cupcake teams. Let's see what we've got.

    Agreed, but IU haven't looked this good routing the cupcake teams for a long time. I am almost ready to believe. Almost.

There was a brief, and very decisive, and altogether unprecedented, outburst of genuine officiating, and it was directed at the best player in the world, and that, my dear young person, simply is not done."

    Nice Star article about central Indiana PGs, lot of focus on Ronnie Johnson and Yogi Ferrell. They're both stellar points, have grown up battling one another, likely 4 year players, and will probably be starters from the jump.

    IU/Purdue's always immensely fun to watch regardless of where the programs are at, but these two going head to head for (hopefully) four years is going to be just outstanding. Both programs are legitimately lucky to have both.

    I agree. These 2012 recruiting classes mirror each other quite a bit. I think IU's has the more ballyhooed prospects, but these next four years are going to be real battles. IMO, two top 25 teams.

    The difference between IU's class and Purdue's class in 2012 IMO beyond the fact that Yogi and Hanner out rank Johnson and Hammons is that I don't think Purdue has anyone with the ceiling that Hollowell has. He's the guy that's progression has really changed the outlook of that class. If his senior year mirrors his improvement during summer league he could jump to a top 30 player.

    Regardless, I'm definitely one of those IU fans who doesn't like Purdue but recognizes that it's a heck of a lot more fun for both schools when both teams are pretty good and I think the 2012 class lays the foundation for that to be the case for many years on both sides.

    People always ask me, knowing that I'm a staunch IU fan and grad, what my least favorite Big Ten Basketball team/program is and it shocks a lot of people when I respond so quickly with Illinois. They are the only program I truly hate and would love to never see win another game. I think it's mostly the fact that their fans seem to think they have a basketball history on par with the other Big Ten elites, IU, MSU, OSU, Purdue, heck even Michigan all out strip Illinois in basketball by a wide margin IMO.

    Also, Elston's play has been fantastic so far. If he keeps this up, he totally changes the dynamic of this team, I expected him to be better this year, obviously, since he's not dealing with a sports hernia, but he is finally living up to some of the hype he had coming in as freshman. Remember there was a point during his recruitment that he was the most highly regarded player in that class.

    Theres a lot of stuff ive missed since i last posted.... Forgive me for talking about multiple subjects lol.

    Went to the game last night, being at a game always has a different feel for how things are going than watching on TV.. But i thought we didn't really play that well.. We obviously distroyed them but i felt like it was really an off night for IU.. Not sure what it was because the stats were fine, but it just felt like they weren't playing near as well as they could have. Zeller continues to impress inside, he has amazing hands. But i will say the other guys still haven't quite figured out how to play with him. Most of their passes inside to him are forced or just aren't very good passes.. But i think its something that will improve over the year and make us even better when we need it, navigating through the B1G schedule. I think it may be a good idea to run some ISO's for Victor from time to time to see how he does. He really seems to be killing opponets so far with his quickness in driving down the lane, i wonder if he can do that on a regular basis against normal talent. If so, that really opens things up.. He will get doubled and you pass it off for an open 3 or dunk to another guy inside.

    In regards to Butler, Stevens is an awesome coach, but not the best in the nation, yet.. Maybe in the future, time will tell, but hes still got improving to do before that. I think it should be obvious Butler isn't that great this year.. Already saying they are a threat in the tournament is ridiculous.. Over the past two years they were great late in the year.. But they also had some big time play makers who are now in the NBA.. Not so much with the current team, they are in a transition stage, they will not make the tournament. IU will barely make it, as a lower seed, and i truely feel they are much, much better talent wise than Butler. And this isn't a real biased opinion, im a big IU fan, but ive been to more Butler games than hoosier games because its closer and i have multiple connections at Butler. I think the past two years of clutch play late in the season with NBA caliber talent is getting to your head a little, they just flat out dont have that kind of talent right now.

    We're also not saying IU is a huge, dominant team who will kill everyone that gets in their way... Were being realistic.. I think were very good but have a lot of holes still that more experienced, more talented teams will be able to attack.. In my head its not a guarentee to make the tournament this year, very young team still, but the NIT is a done deal at least to me.. Next couple years are gonna be a fun ride.. IU is gonna be a huge talent again, finally. And Purdue is gonna be hanging right by us, so it should be fun. Talented rivalries always make for better games.

    EDIT: Also agree with Trader Joe, I think Elston is the X factor... Come off the bench as a F and make some jumpers/3's and his hustle will be a huge boost if he continues to do it against good teams.

    I called this Elston as the X factor thing over the summer. I finally made a prediction that might have a chance of coming true. Nostradamus, here I come!

    How long has it been since IU has seen the top 25 poll? Anybody? Here's hoping they climb in there soon. The team looks so much better this year from what little I have seen compared to recent history. Ball movement is especially noticeable.

    I can't wait for the Kentucky game. That game will determine how good we truly are for the future as well as the present. Hulls vs Teague; Oladipo vs Glichrist; Jones III vs Lamb, Watford vs Terrence Jones; Zeller vs Davis; Sheehey vs Miller

    Should be a good game.

    Teague is going to murder us. We are going to have trouble with quick, penetrating guards, and that is Teague's game. Hulls, as much as I love the kid's moxie and efficiency, just doesn't have the athletic ability to guard someone like Teague.

    I think we will hang with them. Here's the key: The Assembly Hall crowd is going to be rabid. Especially if we enter that game undefeated. I think Kentucky has some holes, but nevertheless, I can't see us winning that game.

    Yeah, if you read back a page I said I think that's a game we could easily lose. Their frontcourt has played really well this season. Will be a great test for Zeller and the rejuvenated Elston.

    Butler on a 16-0 run. They still look pretty bad, though. G-W is just atrocious, as we already know.

    How does a coach let one of his players foul out with 9 minutes left?

    Just awful.

    I fully expect IU to beat Butler. If they suck IU into their low-scoring defensive battle, it'll be interesting, but IU just looks so much better.

    IU should win by 15+.

    So was most of Bob Knight coached teams. Most college programs play a really slow tempo.
