  1. Another episode of Hoosier Lunch.

    Looking at Nebraska’s schedule, it concerns me. They’ve played almost everyone tight, and almost beat Wisky on road. Could be “Minnesota Lite” – a hard luck team waiting for a breakthrough against an underperforming favorite.

  2. Couldn’t agree more HT. If we come out the least bit passive tonight it will make for a long night in Lincoln. We need to come out and smack them in the mouth early to show who’s boss and then have no let up the rest of the way. if we come out timid and jack up 3 point shots every possession and have 15-20 turnovers we will suffer a similar fate to what we have witnessed the last few games. I believe we will come out with that necessary fire and win. Freshmen leadership from CZ will lead the way for everybody else.

  3. IU is a bottom tier defensive team maybe worst in the BIG.Does not translate well to road games. As long as Jones continues to get 25 plus minutes it will not be pretty. Nebraska has big guards plus plays great defense- maybe as tough as Wisconsin. We need to hope for a 25% shooting night for Nebraska and 50% for IU.
