    Marquette Post game

    I think we only had 2 or 3 turnovers in the second half.

    Chicago State Postgame Thread

    I have always hated poor FT shooting, but it seems players just aren't as good at it as in the past. Most of our misses didn't seem to be because of bad technique, with maybe Davis being the exception. His shots were really short, so maybe it was fatigue, but I'd have thought that during his recovery he would have been able to spend a lot of time practicing FT's. I think Davis will make some really good contributions this season.

    Chicago State Postgame Thread

    We really look improved in almost every category. For an opening night, I thought our play was overall pretty solid with all the little brain farts and misqueues to be expected. I'll really be surprised if Rob P. isn't our #1 PG by the time BT play starts (if not sooner). Deron Davis looked pretty good, all things considered. Team FT shooting still needs to improve quite a bit. The guys doing the broadcast didn't even mention Hunter as I recall - just one more quality player that Archie will eventually have at his disposal.

    One thing that has changed is our list of active recruits for this next class. Now that we're down to (from what I presume) 2 or 3 realistic recruits and a couple more long shots, we have to close the deal on our top two (and in state) targets, IMO. As for the MSU assertion about KBJ and Stewart, not only have I never read about that I also recall Romeo and Grimes (and Garland too) being super close friends and we know how that turned out. The PU / MSU squabbling was quite amusing though.

    In a sense, I hope TJD didn't give the staff a definite promise that he's coming. I really want him (and KBJ) to come to IU, but I don't really embrace the idea of visiting schools and letting them think you are truly interested in joining their teams if you have no intention of seriously considering them (remember our reactions to Darius Garland). If he's told the staff we are the team to beat and he intends to commit unless another school can convince him to go there, then that's cool. This isn't meant to doubt, demean, or refute any inside info that others may offer, I really enjoy and appreciate hearing what they say. I take everything (EVERYTHING) I read with a dose of skepticism until dead solid proof is presented.

    Isaiah Stewart Cuts IU

    MSU is on the final list for several really, really good players. Unless they strike out on all of them, they would look to continue having strong rosters.

    Around the B1G/NCAA

    Th UL thing does surprise me and I tend to be a bit cynical by nature. That a quality coach would take the job and be able to draw high level recruits is really strange given the situation. Maybe everyone has been given some kind of assurance that any NCAA actions will be minor, years away, or non-existent.

    Around the B1G/NCAA

    Interesting to note that Darius Garland is listed at #57.

    Ten Man Rotation

    This discussion is more important than speculating who will start, IMO. I can't dispute the 10 players the OP listed, but it sure seems like some talented players will be doing a lot of sitting. I guess that's a good thing for a team, especially since there will always be injuries. This is where roster management and (bench) player temperment become important. It will be interesting to see how Arch manages it since he probably has never dealt with it before as the head coach.
  10. Doesn't Oklahoma State have some trillionaire guy that gifts them beau coup money?

    From my knowing next to nothing keyboard, I'm calling BS on this article. What is there to suggest MSU is "picking up steam" with TJD? I'm open to hearing any rumors but this seems like phony reporting.

    Is Penny Hardaway considering coming to IU?

    Zeke Nnaji Cuts IU

    For quite a while now it's appeared that ZN wants to go to KU. It seems like any other school would be a plan B for him. The interesting part is it seems HE is KU's backup plan. I suspect Archie didn't feel any confidence and wasn't interested in waiting around for him (but might for Stewart).

    Comical Archie Miller Analysis

    71 meenie, Monday at 3:39 PM To their credit, another Purdue poster pointed out that Crean's Marquette team was a 3 seed and beat both the 1 and the 2 to get to the final four. He also pointed out that MIller's Dayton team beat several higher seeds to get to the E8. Gave Michigan's run to the title last year as an example of an easy draw/busted bracket. So, there are some pretty knowledgeable fans there, but they usually get accused of being an IU fan when they show some intelligence...think about that for a moment. I just saw that. Quickly turned into the typical sniping, complete with someone posting the definition of the word 'opinion'.

    Comical Archie Miller Analysis

    My first tv/movie crush was Haley Mills as a wee lad. But I'll go with Marsha Brady, Mary Ann, Kate Jackson, & Bailey Quarters (also was quite impressed with Tanya Roberts when she joined the angels) It just occurred to me that our fantasies about these ladies are similar to Purdue fans' dreams of a Nat Championship (ie unrealistic).
