  1. KenPom, as of Tuesday morning, has the Hoosiers projected at 18-13 and 8-10.

    It’s a crap year for all the bubble teams, but I don’t think those numbers are going to cut it to make the NCAA.

  2. IU is playing for NIT bid if they can improve enough to make NIT when it is all said and done.
    Penn State @ IU is a toss up game.

  3. This is just getting ridiculous. Fred’s Glass has to look at the last 9 years and be convinced this just isn’t IU basketball. If OG and Blackmon are forced to return due to injuries instead of pursuing the NBA, it would have to be attractive to a new coach. I tried to support our coach after last year, but I’ve had enough. The buyout goes to 1,000,000 July 1 2017…hopefully there will be a new face as the IU men’s basketball coach.
