    IU baseball is several steps above the competition in the B1G. Nice to see, I hope they can host another regional and make a run at another College World Series.
    Well as of now, ESPN has us hosting a Regional and carrying on to host a Super Regional.

    I mean we pretty much have to win the Big Ten to do that. And probably only drop a handful more of games.

    Swept Penn State this weekend and outscored them 27-3. Just clinched the Big Ten title with a record of 19-2 and still one more series to go. Won 23 of the last 25 overall.



    Never would have expected this kind of dominance back in March.

    IU baseball is the first Big Ten team to ever be a National Seed. Will host 2 weekends assuming they win the first

    ESPN is bored this offseason so they have decided to start ranking the top 50 college basketball coaches. Numbers 25-50 were unveiled today. In a sidebar, I notice this:

    http://espn.go.com/ncb/notebook/_/pa...top-50-coaches

    Here are a few surprises from the initial set of rankings:

    Tom Crean (Not ranked) - Well, the Indiana coach failed to crack the Top 50. And that's surprising - maybe. Under Crean, Indiana has reached the Sweet 16 in two of the last three years. The Hoosiers won the Big Ten regular season crown in 2012-13, too. He's also responsible for the restoration of a program that fell short of a lofty legacy as it endured the post-Kelvin Sampson Era sanctions. All of that after he led Marquette to the Final Four in 2003. That all should count for something. But perception matters, too. IndianaAnd the perception that Crean has failed to alter is one that sees him as more of a recruiter than an Xs and Os guy. A 4-15 record overall against Bo Ryan, one of the game's great Xs and Os coaches, only magnifies that notion. Crean had two top-five NBA draft picks in 2012-13. But he couldn't advance beyond the Sweet 16 with Victor Oladipo and Cody Zeller, even though that Hoosiers squad spent a chunk of the season with the No. 1 slot. They exited the Big Dance after shooting 33.3 percent and committing 18 turnovers against Syracuse in the Sweet 16. And last season, Indiana went 7-11 in the Big Ten and failed to reach the NCAA tourney. Yes, Crean had a lot of inexperienced players on that team. But that shouldn't happen when one of the league's top athletes (Yogi Ferrell) and a future lottery pick (Noah Vonleh) anchor your roster. Still, Steve Alford has just one Sweet 16 appearance in his entire career (1999). And Fran McCaffery finally turned Iowa into an NCAA tourney team last season. Not sure how those guys are ranked in the 30s and Crean can't even crack the Top 50. It's interesting.

    Perfect ending to a ****** year for IU sports. IU baseball knocked out of its own regional by Stanford.


    The Hoosiers were on the winner's side of the bracket after beating the Cardinal on Saturday. Stanford advanced to the finals after winning yesterday afternoon. IU led 6-4 in the 8th inning before Stanford hit a 3-run homer and went on to win, forcing a decisive game tonight. After IU scored a run in the 8th to go up 4-3, Stanford hit a walk-off 2-run shot to win 5-4.

    It has absolutely zero to do with Painter and/or Crean being left off that list, but that **** is ridiculously stupid and ill informed. It's a story that isn't worthy of Bleacher Report.

    Replace the URL with bleacherreport.com instead of espn.com and watch how much traction it gets. ESPN's just as clickbait-y as BR if you didn't catch my heavy drift.

    List seems fine to me. Maybe too weighted toward very recent accomplishments. McCaffrey suprised me a little, other than that, it was fine.

    So, Tre Roberson reportedly transferring to IL State? Never made up my mind about the two-headed QB situation, but color me disappointed and a bit sad to see him go.

    I am genuinely despondent over this news. I wish him well; he is one hell of a coach.
    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.

    The Smith news is a major bummer. I don't know how you replace him.

    Yeah, it's really hard to get excited about anything. Having a new DC has me hopeful for a bowl game in football, but that's about it. My apathy towards our men's basketball program is profound.

    Our football team should be a lot better, get excited about that.

    Football: lost to Minnesota on a late turnover when all they needed was a field goal to tie. Finished 5-7 and just missed a bowl.

    Basketball: lost to Penn State thanks to Crean refusing to call a timeout when his team couldn't inbound the ball against the press, who then blames the loss on "not executing down the stretch."

    Baseball: after losing at home only 3 times all season, loses twice at home in 24 hours, on a walk-off home run. They led in the 8th inning of their last two games but blew both of them.


    That's not even getting into men's soccer, who started the season #1 and had to win the BTT just to keep their NCAA tourney streak alive.



    Guess it could be worse…at least we're not Purdue.

    It wasn't like he was ever going to play and contribute anyway.

    I have less a problem with the transfers themselves than Crean spending so much recruiting time & resources bringing in so many players who don't or barely contribute.

    Crean values quantity over quality. He'd rather be oversigned and have 15 players for 13 scholarships when the last 3-4 are terrible than have 11 scholarship players who are average or better. It's also why he has 4 hour practices and kills his teams every year. He doesn't know how to do anything efficiently. It's just a bunch of manic energy.
