  • The plus/minus stat said Devan Dumes was a key for Indiana on Monday, despite his conventional box score numbers, I wrote.
  • Saturday is a measuring stick for the progress Indiana has made or not made since last year’s 62-10 debacle, Chris Korman writes.
  • Felisha Legette-Jack said she expects the former UConn standout now coaching Cincinnati to bring heart and desire to that program, Andrew Wyder writes.

TAKE A LOOK

Austin Starr, kicking that game-winning field goal back in 2007. If you look closely, there is a Korman sighting.

  1. I saw an interesting stat on TV yesterday on ESPN. They listed some notably bad seasons from some of the major programs in the last few decades.

    Does anyone remember that North Carolina went only 8-22 in 2002? Duke had a season where they only won 11 games; Kentucky, too.

    Anyway, it gave me some perspective about IU’s year last year. Even the heavyweights have had really bad seasons and recovered. No big whoop.

  2. You were watching the Zags vs. MSU game..I saw the same stats….Wasn’t Steve Lavin relating the dryspells to the quick turnover of one-and-done talent in top programs?
    Zags look very solid this year…..Great looking front-line..Why are they not in the Top 25?…MSU was fortunate to grab the win. I found the topic of “Jud” Heathcote’s friendship with Mark Few also quite intriguing.. The old Spartan hanging with the young talented coach from the dark side of Washington.

  3. Amazing how cordial you can be, Downing, as long as I write something that you can’t “disagree” with or take a stance opposite.

    Actually, I saw that stat during the Clemson-Liberty matchup. They must have brought it up again during the Zags game.

    Few is a good guy, from what I know. Too good for Indiana, apparently; he was on the list to replace both Davis and Sampson. It didn’t help that Roddy Rod Wilmont and Duke of Earl Calloway put a nail in Gonzaga’s coffin the last time they met in the tourney.

    He’s an Oregonian, by the way, so he’s merely a visitor to the Dark Side.

  4. I can’t help that most of what you write is disagreeable..And don’t worry your “too good for Indiana” inner Dark Side, Tom…We’ll soon be competitive with the “heavyweights” again.

    Yeah, that 2007 deep tournament run was memorable…just a shame that Roddy Rod and Duke of Earl couldn’t continue their hot shooting after downing the Zags…Wish they could have saved some for the Bruins when they only went a combined 7-21 (only 1-5 from 3-PT land for “Roddy Rod” as he went from fire to Freon)…I still will always love them both…Great representatives of Hoosier basketball. Never any quit in their games..And Calloway kept true to his old coach by supporting him during the NCAA witch hunt…Good kids.
