I hear what both of you are telling me but at the end of the day 17-15 looks like crap.  8-13 v conference teams make it look worse.

It does look like crap. So does 18-14 against a worse schedule with worse wins.

Not to get all sappy on you guys, but this is my first selection Sunday since my dad passed. I miss commiserating with him about this today and am thankful for you all. 

Per NBC...   INDIANA (NET: 58, SOS: 179): Look, I get it. Indiana is 15-14 on the season. They are 6-12 in the Big Ten. They have been a massive disappointment based off of what the expectat

I think the lesson to be learned here is that the Big Ten has somewhat hurt itself moving to 20 conference games.  2 more OOC cupcakes and IU would have been in.

I hope we make the tourney. What fan wouldn’t want their team in there.

do I believe fairly we DESERVE to be in there? No. You can’t flake out as long as we did and hit it hot at the end and yell “that’s enough! We’re back now!” You made your bed. Lay in it. It’s hard because ALL of us know what we are capabale of when at our best but our boys CHOSE to be divided and allow petty crap and immaturity wreck their season. Now if we are blessed with a bid great. I hope we make the most of it. If we don’t there is ABSOLUTELY NO ONE IN THR WORLD TO BLAME, except themselves. 

Romeo when you leave for the NBA remember that when you’re 1.5 games in the lead of the 8th spot in the NBA regular season fighting for that last spot.

If you’re one of the players, remember that when a chick hits on you and your hormones want something you know will fracture the team.

when you have an immature dad who wants to spout off, remember that.

when you think you’re more important than what the coaching staff is selling as far as a scheme...remember that.

when you’re fighting for a promotion and so are others and it’s 3months away and it’s 5:30pm on a Friday and there’s stuff that needs to be wrapped up...remember that.

If you don’t make it in you didn’t NOT make it in today, you didn’t make it in mid winter when childish division was more important than long term success and glory.

I honestly hope your optimism is spot on and I’m wrong but I think we will just have to agree to disagree.

To be fair I don't think we will make it, I just don't think it's 100% certain at this point. I think we have a 10-20% chance.

I get the frustration of losing today, and we all know what our overall record is, but until the committee decides and gives explanations,  we won't know for sure. When you look at the good wins and bad losses of the other bubble teams, I still think we have a shot if those teams lose today. Heck, stick us in the play-in game to prove that we deserve it.

The only post season IU will see is the NIT,and its not 100% guaranteed, Glass said no last year.

We were not selected last year so he did not turn down an invite last year.

I just want all the people on here who are trying to convince themselves that we deserve a spot to look at our record. If this record belonged to anyone else we would be making fun of them. It was a bad season where the team did not meet expectations. Injuries played a role for sure but we were not a good team. 

I do not think our coaching at any point was elite. Without the so called crean players that so many people have b#$%"!# about we get blown out of the water these last 5 games. 

Romeo had a good season for a freshman but he was far from the hype. 

 

I still cant believe all the people that think we have a chance. Smh

You can't look at us in a vacuum. Sure, we have a shaky resume but so does every other bubble team. Who out of Creighton, Clemson, ASU, Texas, etc. can you say for sure deserves it over us? What makes their records not suck?

This team really doesn't deserve a spot after today.  There is not much of an argument to be made anymore.  Indiana basketball has become a mockery.  I hope Archie can get this figured out.  Next year has to be better.  I dont know how much more of this (as in the last 2 decades) the fanbase and program can tolerate before IU basketball is just a footnote about Bob Knight.

It isn't about rather or not this team deserves it in a vacuum. 68 teams have to make it; name the 68 teams that deserve it over us.....
