  1. This is definitely telling of how the media and coaches think of our rebuilding project. Thought Jordie would be Honorable mention for atleast one of the teams. Yikes.

  2. Jordie is the most over rated Mr. Basketball I have ever seen. He is average to good, but not a Mr. Basketball. How did this happen?

  3. Just goes to show that we DO NOT have the talent to win. You IU crazies on this site should spend your energy rallying around the team rather than picking on individual players and the coaching staff. That would have a bigger, and more positive effect than the negativity here and on sites like this one that probably has no positive effect at all.

    Some guy on the coach, or at his desk, or even reporting for the HT doesn’t know more about what’s going on with IU B-ball or how to fix it than the people working to get that done. Many of you act as if you do, and that would be funny if you weren’t so loud.

  4. No horable mention for the defensive team LOL. That would of been a shame if we got somebody on that one. Things need to change in a hurry this summer.

  5. Rivers should have been on the defensive team– he held Taylor under 40 points. Per CTCPritchard is a great defender. CTC should have been coach of the year for winning 3 Big 10 games–what a joke. Same rotten offense, over switching on defense due to lack of faith in players,no blocking out, just plain bad all the way around.

  6. Fozzy, you hit the nail on the head. The internet has made the quiet minority “the loud minority”. Our team is undermanned, and they are still fighting. People need to relax and give this thing about 5 years total. I think at that point we can decide one way or the other. In the meantime, let’s get behind the team (which the fans have done) and show what Hoosier passion is about.

  7. DocDave you are right about the fans behind the team. To bad the team on plays hard at home games and run like scared rabbits on road games when things start to go south a bit. We won’t even talk about the lack of total team effort in the Ill Game.
