    Butler Postgame Thread

    I love how we won. I love how we are getting valuable experience in close games. But holy ballz, I can’t take another one of these games. These guys better learn to start these games better; not all of them will end like this.

    AP top 25 out on 10/22

    Well, at least he’s right about UK.

    1 step forward. 3 steps back.

    Arkansas post game

    It’s going to be hard to beat us. I will say that. Arkansas is not a bad team and they’re tough to beat at home. It’s the equivalent to losing against Minny on the road. That last call of the game is honestly one of the worst calls I’ve seen in a while. Barely had possession, last seconds of game, you can’t can’t get ticky tack. That was straight up BS.

    IU - Arkansas game thread

    Absolutely HORRIBLE call.

    Marquette at Indiana Game Thread

    Al is doing a great job defensively on Howard. Staying in front of him really well.
  7. Love the idea of these closed door scrimmages and hope we do more in the future against bigger and stronger opponents. Who cares about the semantics of what is or isn’t ‘secret’. Who cares if or how the results leak out. Let the team do what it takes to be better prepared for the season as far as I’m concerned.
  8. More smoke around Kansas. And smoke around Zion WIlliamson = more smoke around Duke. Really curious to see what happens if/when Nike gets pulled into this - it’s their schools that usually get a good 75% of the top ten recruits every year.

    Big Bold Prediction

    Haha. My bad. Must’ve been reading Davis’s state. Still though, that’s a lot of length 1-4.

    Big Bold Prediction

    I've been hearing/reading some positive news about Jerome Hunter. I also heard this week that he's been practicing with the guards. Which made me think.....my big bold prediction: Assuming Hunter out performs expectations and assuming Green becomes the consistent player we need him to be, look at the length of this line-up: Green - 6'3" Romeo - 6'6" Hunter - 6'7" Smith - 6' 7" Morgan- 6'10" Just imaging the possibility of this group playing in the pack line defense gets me really excited. IF this line-up is good enough to start at some point in the season I think that we'll be in very, very good shape and looking at a 3-4 seed in the tourney.

    Expectations for Next Year

    I think he’s making a bold prediction, but I won’t be surprised if it happens. It’s Wisconsin; except for last year when they were devastated by injuries they always seem to out perform expectations. Oh yeah....Ethan Happ too...a safe prediction to be B1G POY.

    Devonte Green

    IMO, a dependable DG is the is the difference between us being good and great next year. Sure we expect RP to step in if needed, but the more we don’t need to rely on RP the better we’ll be. We need RP as our ‘second weapon’, not as our ‘fall back’ point guard.

    Beilein Interviewing for Pistons Job

    Max still speaks very highly of Beilein and respects him as coach. Not sure if ‘run off’ is the right phrase. I am happy max came our way though...whatever his reasons.
  14. Let’s not act like lapses like that don’t happen in college. Last post on this. In regards to 'lazy', let's remember the NBA's regular season is 82 games that are 48 minutes each. College has around 30 games that are 40 minutes each. It's like comparing a 10k to a marathon. When you are watching a marathon you don't ask: why is the runner not sprinting on mile number 5? So a fair argument would be something like: I'd like to see the NBA shorten their season so I could watch the players play more intensely on the defensive end. NOT all NBA players play lazy defense.
  15. I’d never get upset if somebody says they don’t watch the NBA. To each their own. But I will call somebody out who makes statements like I don’t watch the NBA because: ‘NBA players are lazy’, ‘they don’t know how to play defense’, ‘they don’t know how to play as a team’, ‘the players in the 80s are better than the players are today because they learned the game the right way’, etc. If said person admittedly doesn’t watch NBA then how do they know their blanket statements to be true?
