    I won't give a game score prediction but I will predict this - when it's over I won't be sober.

    The time is at hand. Expect to hear the announcement date very soon. Been hearing 1 of the 2 this week. No idea if true but just passing it on. Nothing has changed in either camp both to IU sooner than later.

    We have to start the game like we did against Marquette, on point and on fire. If we start the way we did against UC Davis and Arkansas, I fear it will be a long night. We definitely don't want to have to play from too far behind in this one.

    Morgan and Davis picked up 2 fouls, each, in the shoot around.

    I don't think that's true at all. I recognize what a flawed human being Bob Knight is, and there were times I was embarrassed by his actions. But I suffered through the IU basketball of the 60s. Sure, we had 2 National Championships under ours belts, but so did Cincinnati and Oklahoma A&M. We'd become just another school. Ohio State, Michigan, and (Oh God, help me) Purdue were better programs by the end of the decade. Bob Knight restored Indiana basketball to Big 10 and national prominence. Love him or hate him, he's a huge reason IU has the following we have today and are still considered a Blueblood. If you don't think so, yank down 3 of those banners hanging at the end of Assembly Hall, because without him, they're not there.

    To me I dont understand that line of thinking. I can be the biggest IU fan and still be a Bob Knight supporter. I dont agree with how he has handled things but he has to live with that. In all honesty he is hurting himself more than the University or us fans. I grew up close to cincy and became a Colts fan when I moved to Bloomington. I fell in love with the Cokts because of #18. When Ayden was in the hospital all the time he was in the Peyton Manning children's hospital not the Indianapolis Colts hospital. It was PM that came to see him in the hospital that wrote to him that wore an Aydens Army tshirt. I am not one to judge anyone's fandom I would support PM anywhere he had gone except New England. The same with Knight. You can root cheer love hate both at the same time. I do find it ironic that Knight was applauded for his stubborn ways not giving in to certain things doing things his way and man we loved him for it. It's those same qualities that have now turned many against him. We are better for have had him as our coach it would be great for him to come back to this great University but I dont hold any ill will toward anyone that does not return to the place that fired them. I wouldn't. The university helped build the monster, support it then ultimately tore it down. Just my 2 cents

    After the game in the hand shake line, CAM holds onto Coach K and says its bad enough you make us play in this cracker box you call a gym and you pay off the refs, but guess what you just got your a** kicked by the HOOSIERS!! Getting excited and more and more cautiously optimistic

    Yes he is stubborn...but you know what,he's been that way he's whole life...it's not like he became that way after the firing,love him or hate him that's how he is best known.

    Check the box score. Morgan already has two fouls. Langford has one.

    One of my favorite IU vs. Duke moments is when A. J. Moye blocked Carlos Boozer in the NCAA tournament. IU went on to knock of then #1 Duke. Carlos Boozer was 6' 9" and 280 lb....s. I don't think any of us thought that we were going to win that game......but we did. Check out the article and video below. SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 2010 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gdpDpH5_nC8 Moye's blocked shot of Carlos Boozer's dunk attempt at the pinnacle of a 17-point second half comeback in the 2002 tournament is one of my all-time favorite Hoosier moments in one of my all-time favorite Hoosier victories. Not only did Moye provide the everlasting poster-perfect blocked shot, but he even provided a classic Moye quote before the game even started: "It's not like they're the University of Jesus Christ and we're playing the Twelve Disciples. It's just Duke. Duke is just a name on a jersey." The quote, the block, and all the game highlights are captured brilliantly in the below 14-minute youtube video. I don't care how many times you have seen this, it is well-worth watching again and again. The make of the video (etecnifibre) includes the Hoosiers movie music during the second-half come-back and then includes the Don Fischer radio call for the end of the game. Literally gives me chills every time.

    "Anyone who is a little worried about going down there probably shouldn't go." I like our coach...

    From one old-ish guy to another...👍 I did feel a little like Bluto doing the "was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?" speech when I was typing that... But to be honest, when I played sports, I always thought my team was going to win. Watching sports, I feel the same way. If I didn't think so, I couldn't have played, or I wouldn't watch. Of course, it doesn't always turn out that way (except 1976!) but that's the way I am...

    Must be a medial meniscus and properly severe -- my oldest, when he was an elite soccer player, had two separate lateral meniscus tears and was back on the field from both after several weeks, but not months. A meniscus tear can be bad though, especially medial.

    You should go do the pep talk in the locker room before the tip off.

    You know what? To hell with this. We're Indiana, not some second rate basketball school. Our basketball legacy is longer and just as distinguished as theirs is. We're as much of a Blueblood as they are. No moral victories. Our coach isn't afraid. Let's go out there and beat their hind ends... Go IU, FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT!

    I always feel the same way. I fully support CTA as our head coach at IU....With that being said, I want him to be the head coach and not part of the "too many chiefs...." factor. I think it is well drawn conclusion that everyone on here wants at least a new OC and any other under-performing coach on staff this year. I keep wondering...... When do our voices and opinions begin to matter? When does Fred Glass feel the heat and start listening to the fans legitimate concerns? Fred and coach Allen have to feel the pressure from the success of Purdue and coach Brohm. Does it even help to e-mail Glass and Allen? I want to see IU succeed like other former bottom feeder teams. What can we do productively as a fan base to help bend their ears and put a burr in their saddles?

    Dustin Dopirak just did a nice profile piece on Jackson-Davis for The Athletic. Touches on all the relevant recruiting stuff, including this quote from Ray Jackson, I thought Dustin did a real nice job describing the family situation with both Ray and Dale in the picture. Here's the link for any Athletic subscribers. https://theathletic.com/663811/2018/11/27/with-recruiting-tabled-until-spring-5-star-trayce-jackson-davis-focuses-on-basketball/

    Already pointed out but we lost by 20. That's possible. We're not going to lose by 50, even depleted this team is 5-1 and really should be 6-0 but for a missed tip in at Ark. If we have Green and McBob I think we'll make a game of it. If we have just one of them I'd still bet on us being in the 10-point range or so. We've also had a little more time to prep for this game, there's plenty of game film for our guys to have gone over, and Morgan and Romeo will be fully pumped up for this game. It's Cameron -- where getting a fair game is like winning the lottery -- but if we're close to full strength I think we'll see a good game from our guys.

    I don't see the problem with being a diehard IU fan and diehard Knight supporter. Maybe just me. His actions over the last few years haven't been my cup of tea but I'll always support him. In terms of defending him to others? I don't think anyone has to do that. Like someone or something for you. If others have a problem with it. That's on them.

    Pretty big statement win for Nebraska going into Clemson and coming out with a win. 1-0 B1G. KenPom now predicts a 7-7 tie.

    I predict TV Ted will have called 7 fouls on Morgan before the half. Four of them will be called while he is on the bench.

    IU needs to be healthy to beat good teams. The best attribute they have as a team is depth. So I hope they are healthier. Davis has played well but has been obviously out of shape. I hope they hang. There's nothing worse than a Duke or PU beatdown.

    I got a hat and a signed mini basketball when he was at TT...and yes I was an RMK fan..that doesn't mean I always agreed with what he did ...and yes I am a IU basketball fan...there was a time when the two went hand in hand and it was the hottest ticket in the state,maybe the nation.

    Yeah it's important that Green limit his TO's for sure. Goes hand in hand with his making better on-ball decisions. Here's to hoping --

    I tore my ACL and meniscus when in the Navy. It took dozens of appointments and months before they finally relented and did an MRI. Nine months later, finally, a surgery happened. 18 mos after the injury, my leg gained enough strength to be 90% of the other leg. Sadly, 23 years later, I still cannot run or participate in any 'footwork' sports.

    Nice read. Waiting until spring turned out great in this case. Let us be patient with TJD and KB and hopefully the end result will be the same.

    K will still manipulate officiating. When he could do that in a championship game, he would have no problem in Durham, on a court that has his name on it.

    Just posted an article from ESPN in the Romeo thread showing how he decided on going to IU. If he had decided in the fall IU would not have been his pick but it would have been either KU or Vandy.

    He usually uses the 1st half to go overboard praising the other team so as not to be branded a homer, but breaks out the blue and white pom poms in the 2nd half.

    121-88 Only the 5th 30-point road win in franchise history. a really impressive performance. I'm getting really excited about Pacer basketball again and it all started with the trade that brought Vic to Indy.
