ALL TEAMS WANT TO PLAY THEIR BEST AGAINST IU BECAUSE  WE ARE IU!!! 

Agreed. Especially during Crean's first two years. Took especial delight on putting a foot on IU's throat.  Knowing at that time . We were not the IU of old.

One other reason I hate Illinois fans.  They never gave IU a break, those first two years. While other fans from across the country, knew what was going on.

There was no way I was going to watch the Iowa game because 4:30 AM comes awful early. Decided I wasn't even going to watch the tip because I might Jinx the team! Now I'm debating watching ANY game? How can I be an IU fan if I can't watch them?

I've never met an Illini basketball fan who operates within a parsec of reality when it comes to their program's significance...

Correct. The Illinois fans on the old Scout board.  Led by a previous member of a branch of one of our military took particular glee in jumping with joy over Sampsongate. Instead of pointing out that IU self-reported, and even withdrew one scholarship as a result. They just pounded IU.  All the while. just a few years previously, when Bruce Pearl turned Illinois in due to violations, while Illinois was already under probation. And the Illinois fans jumped with joy when the NCAA cleared Illinois of the Pearl accusations. 

All the while failing to mention that the NCAA extended the probation that Illinois was already on. Why ?  Because during their investigation of Pearl's accusations, the NCAA found more UNREPORTED violations !

The first probation prior to the extension as a result of the Pearl investigation :

Our great military should not be brought into any of the mishaps of Indiana athletics! God bless all who serve this great nation!!

Before the Iowa game I said I had a good feeling and that we would win and that worked out.  I am having a good feeling about tomorrow as well and think that Archie has gotten the team to buy in.

Will miss the first half driving. Will try to listen.  Would love to get this Michigan is one of two Big Tens Archie hasn’t beaten plus we get this and I’ll feel good about a tourney berth happening. 
 

Assume Smith will be on Livers hope he can bring it.

@IU Scott I think you’re nuts. I don’t have confidence in this team on the road. I’m predicting a 15 pt loss unfortunately. 

Yeah I’ll be shocked if it’s not a 15-20 point blowout.  It just seems to be how our team rolls unfortunately.

so my best attempt at being positive... i don't think we are going to win these next 2 road games, but... it's not like they are great teams.  if we can somehow pull even 1 of these next 2 out and then win the last 2 home games against MN and Wisc, i'll like our chances for the tourney.  i just have a really hard time seeing us beating Penn St. even at AH.  now, of course i think it's a possibility.  that would also seal the deal i would think.  i'm just not seeing that one, @ Purdouche, or @ Illinois.  i'm going into this one with guarded optimism.

Sunny up here today in NE Indiana which makes me optimistic 🙂.  So I figure every basketball court is the same size, thank you Coach Dale, and the talents and abilities of our beloved Hoosiers are about where they were a few days ago. Thus, the most important variable in this contest today is on the mental approach - believing in themselves, blocking out the crowd noise, etc. We all get this. All very doable and I will be one Hoosier fan cheering them on full-force and sending lots of good vibes, karma, prayers - whatever it takes! - their way today!  You got this, guys!

Road games are no longer appointment television for me, I'll be getting drunk at a winery in Michigan instead. 

  Michigan has some pretty neat winery's.  Don't know where you are located. One of my favorite is the Round Barn Estate in Southern Michigan.

Maybe you will be lucky enough to find a winery with a tv.  Enjoy your day.

Quick tangent here - I love how this sports board often goes in the direction of food and beverages 🙂

That's where we're going! Love Round Barn. I'm in northern Indiana which has proximity to some world class wineries in southern Michigan.

Hopefully they have a tv and can catch some of it.

Game Day Essentials for Indiana at Michigan.  The stat to watch might just be the rebounding margin -- and especially on the offensive end for IU.

https://www.thedailyhoosier.com/iu-basketball-game-day-rebounding-key-to-hoosiers-success-as-they-return-to-road-at-michigan/

Good read. Looking at the overall stats rebounding (IU) and assist to turnover (UM) were the only ones I saw where there was a significant advantage. 

I'm thinking...

Smith on Livers

TJD on Wagner

Brunk on Teske

Durham on Brooks

Phinisee on Simpson

I think it'll be a close, fun game to watch...I just hope we come out on top...
