    Michigan goes down. No more unbeatens in Men's D1 basketball, and now IU is tied with only Wisconsin for first in the Big Ten. Hmm... who does IU host on Tuesday night? Oh right.. Wisconsin.
    Take me out to the black, tell 'em I ain't coming back. Burn the land and boil the sea, you can't take the sky from me.

    That game will be interesting. Talk about two teams with drastically different playing styles: Wisconsin will walk it up and milk the shot clock in the half court and we are helter skelter, run and gun. I think we win, but I would be awfully nervous if the game was at the Kohl Center.

    I buy things with the specific thought, "I won't care if I break this during an IU game."

    Number 2 in both polls for our showdown with Wiscy on Tues. No idea if the Badgers made it in to the polls yet. Mich dropped to 5 I know.

    Illinois plummeted as we should all expect. Honestly surprised they are still ranked.

    Tubby's full court press, which is especially good when "let them play" means "let them foul."

    It was very physical in the backcourt, and we responded by turning the ball over a lot.

    I'm a bit concerned that we're going to see a lot of full court press until we show more composure than we did Saturday. A solid win, becuase the first half was so good that we had enough cushion to hold on, but we're moving up because we got help.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    Our first half definitely left an impression nationally, more than our bad second half did.

    Here's the thing, I think a lot of our struggle with the press could be solved if you have Watford as a screener and not as the inbounder. Also...free throws.

    Something I noticed, Illinois is in a tough spot. Next two games are against NU and Neb, but then they kick off a stretch that seems them facing, MICH, MSU, WISC, IU, and MINN.

    Something I think we both noticed: Illinois has been exposed. The Purdue game did it, they came back and pounded OSU, but when I watch that team I'm not scared of them.

    Oh yeah, good thing Dal rubbed our noses in them pounding OSU. Swung the karmic meter back our way.

    Their offense consists of too many jacked up threes and contested jumpers. Basically, I think it is "give the ball to Paul or Richardson and get out of the way." Can work, but I don't know how many sets I've seen them run. Ohio State offensive philosophy is similar--not so much with the threes, but they live and die on Deshaun Thomas offensively.

    Honestly, I just don't what to make of Groce. He's not Weber by any means, but he might be too far the other way. An overcorrection of sorts.

    I don't think Weber is a bad coach. I think he's just a lousy recruiter and his downfall at Illinois was getting players the fans wanted instead of guys who fit his system.


    The Groce hire was underwhelming to me at the time and I don't see Illinois being much more than a 5th-6th place team while he's there. Watching their offense reminds me of the Mike Davis years. Four guards/forwards trying to go one on one and no inside game. Brandon Paul is their Bracey Wright.

    It will be really interesting to see if we can impose our will/pace on Wisconsin tonight. No team knows their pace more than the Badgers under Ryan.

    i believe i am beyond the stage of breaking stuff when my teams lose. i wrecked a couple of old playstations years ago and have made it a mission not to let myself go. not that i did it often before but i learned it was just too expensive to get so upset.

    This sucks. We're not a very good second half team right now.

    Cody has missed his last five shots and nobody else is stepping up.
