  1. Can you imagine what Bo Ryan would do with this team? We are getting out coached bottom line. Crean is a good recruiter, average at developing players but awful at coaching! The substitutions are ridiculous. No player can get into any type of rhythm with the way he subs! What in the world is he thinking? Is he getting some type of mental disorder? I’m being serious because I’ve never seen anything like it.

  2. I would shoot myself in the head if Bo Ryan was my coach. Sorry, just a style thing. I can’t stand watching his teams play. Plus, if Crean gets criticized for underperforming in the tourney, Bo Ryan gets the gold medal.

  3. This time of year, rankings are meaningless. We don’t deserve to be ranked and we should not care. We should only care about getting better, both individually and collectively, learning from our mistakes and winning the next game.

  4. Nor should they. I keep hearing bo ryan does nothiing in the tourney. Well explain to me the last time IU did anything in the tourney other then 2002. I could see the argument if we were making final fours but right now bo ryan looks awfully good.

  5. Tell me why is Kentucky ranked in either poll when they have lost three games and do not have a signature win this year?
