    Crean is using the Jim Boeheim approach to scheduling--which is to say cupcakes galore before your brutal conference schedule kicks in. I don't really like it and wish we had a few more games against teams that weren't horrendous, but it is what it is.

    Crean is in his fifth season. Did he really not expect to have a good team by now? If the team disappoints last year I don't think it's unreasonable to question whether he'd even be there now.
    Alot of these games could have been agreed to before last year. Before that Crean had only managed to get 12 wins from a team. And while he might have thought he would have a good team. There was no way he would have known he would have the #1 team in the country.

    If we hadn't had so many cupcakes maybe we lose a few games, thanks to Perea and Jurkin being out. That would lose us our #1 ranking which helps with recruiting. Not to mention these blowouts do alot of impressing in order for us to get talented players like Noah Vonleh.

    We play in the Big Ten, a league where our RPI is going to be fine. There really isn't that much to gain from scheduling good teams out of conference. So why do it?

    I would argue that losing 1 out of 3 games against legitimate opponents will help a team out more in March than beating 3 Northeastern Conference teams (3!!) by 40.

    In March, no one will remember who IU played November and December. There is really no reason to play a tough out of conference schedule when you are in a good conference, you can only hurt yourself.

    The NCAA selection committee will certainly remember who IU played in November and December. Let's say Louisville, IU, Duke, and Michigan all end up with comparable records. Even if there's a consensus that those four teams are the #1 seeds, at least two of them are going to be forced from their regional in the tournament. They look at the schedule to determine the differences between those schools. Not saying those 4 are #1 seeds for sure but schedule will enter the equation on Selection Sunday.

    And IU's schedule is plenty tough simply because of the Big Ten.

    Ya we have 10 games (11 if you count G'Town who was underrated before we played them) on our schedule against top 25 teams in the nation. Your performance through those will easily be enough to show the committee if your the real deal or not. Doesn't really matter if the rest are teams that don't have a shot against you, if you play that many top teams in the nation you will have enough to show for.

    Thats crazy. Personally I like the guy, but others don't quite share my opinion on him.

    He's passionate about the program and committed to winning. You can't ask much more of the coach for the football program at IU.

    Such BS I couldn't get the ESPN app on my xbox to work right so I didn't get to watch the game.

    Well I am going to have to find a way to go into work early so I can get off by 2 to watch this game.

    Some good news for IU is that Georgetown had to play 2 OTs I am hearing. Which with only 40 hours of rest between games could prove to be handy for us.

    Yeah. Not good. IU has announced he fractured his left patella and is out for the year. He should be able to apply for a medical redshirt.

    Pulling dual watching duty today with the Colts game and soccer championship. At the half it's all tied up at 0-0. IU appears to have the better legs, but Georgetown is holding their own. Good to see Jordy made it down overnight to support the squad.
