  1. Hey I admit I have been all wrong here. My writing was Reagan era Kiplinger style, which I was taught while in grad school at Georgetown. This does not resonate well in the deep southern hillbilly Indiana. I apologize for that 1980’s thinking. With that said, I really want to fit in on the southern Indiana way of thinking. The “Podunker” had it right, I might find myself being banned from this board. What would I do and where would I go ? So with that said, I thought Indiana played GREAT tonight. I thought Coach Tom Crean did a great job tonight. I thought Verdell Jones was awesome. Pritchard was amazing tonight. Penn State had only lost at home to powers Vermont and Maine. So, I hope I don’t get blocked fom this blog. Indiana is headed in the right direction and tried really hard against a VERY tough opponent tonight, Penn State. Keep your heads up southern Indiana guys, we looked really good tonight. Keep drinking the coolaid.

  3. I hope IU can turn it around soon. Soft schedule at beginning of season is starting to show. Can’t understand why Crean takes a player out after he scores, or does something good. Also having trouble understanding why the bigs “Wafford, and Elston are not posting up instead they are playing the perimeter and running the weave. I’m not the coach, but I don’t see anything wrong with playing over 18 minutes a game. Great game Victor. Wish the whole team played like you.

  4. Hoosierwynn; I don’t remember writing anything about the possibility of you “getting banned from this board.” Please explain.

    My question to all is; will IU win 11 games this year? Seriously, will they win two games in the Big Ten?

  5. Hoosierwynn, you should retain your original writing style. No one has yet been barred merely for writing poorly. You’ll be fine.

  6. I think Tom Crean should have shown up at the radio interview afterwards. All his talk about ‘for the fans’ is total BS.

  7. TOM CREAN IS IN OVER HIS HEAD AT IU.THIS IS NOT THE LITTLE CONFERENCE HE CAME FROM…CREAN GET’S OUT COACHED EVERY GAME.SCORE..GET A REBOUND..DO SOMETHING GOOD..HE PULLS YOU OUT OF THE GAME..WHAT??…HE IS JUST LIKE MIKE DAVIS…GREAT RECRUITER…CAN GET PLAYER’S TO COME..BUT DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH THEM WHEN HE GET’S THEM.INDIANA HAD ONE CHANCE TO DO IT RIGHT AFTER DAVIS…AND THEY FAILED..HAD TO HIRE STEVE ALFORD…NOT A GREAT COACH…BUT A GREAT COACH IF HE WAS COACHING IN THE STATE OF INDIANA..IU WILL NOT WIN 20 GAMES FOR AT LEAST ANOTHER 5 YEAR’S…FAN’S WILL BE GONE BY THEN.ONLY HOPE WE HAVE NOW…AND IT’S ONLY A FLICKER OF HOPE…IS TO FIRE CREAN AND HIRE RANDY WITTMAN..HE IS A INDIANA GUY…CREAN IS FROM MICHIGAN…HE KNOW’S NOTHING ABOUT THE HISTORY OF INDIANA BASKETBALL…THE RECRUITS WE HAVE COMING WON’T LEAVE WITH WITTMAN COMING..THIS TEAM DOES NOT LISTEN TO A WORD CREAN TELL’S THEM…AND IF THEY ARE LISTENING…THEN WE ARE REALLY IN BIG TROUBLE.CREAN TRIED..GREAT GUY..NOT A GOOD COACH.DANE FIFE WOULD HAVE BEEN A BETTER FIT THAN CREAN..HE IS FROM MICHIGAN…BUT HE PLAYED HERE AND LOVE’S IU.WE WILL NEVER BE FULLY BACK AS A NATIONAL POWER UNDER CREAN…MIGHT WIN 15-18 GAMES A YEAR AT BEST…BUT NEVER CONTEND FOR ANYTHING.IU BOARD OF TRUSTEE’S…YOU HAVE FAILED..GET A INDIANA GUY TO LEAD OUR TEAM…KNIGHT MIGHT EVEN COME BACK AND SUPPORT US WITH ONE OF HIS OWN COACHING.
