  1. IU is 10-2. 1 expected loss. 1 unexpected loss. On the verge of redemption and making some noise with a win over G’town in NYC. I’ve been critical even cynical, but if we can go 11-2 with wins over 2 ranked teams and the 26th place team….it’s time to unite and support this group of young men and the staff.

  2. Top ten ranked teams continue to struggle this season. Kansas got blown out by Temple the other day. I wonder if Jayhawk fans are demanding the coach be fired?

  3. For those interested in IU sports, the most recent edition of Inside Indiana offers some good stuff. Highly recommend you pick up a copy and read it. Interesting panel discussion about the relative job security of both Wilson and Crean.

  4. Also, Arizona (ranked #3) lost to an unranked UNLV team yesterday. That’s three top ten teams that have lost to unranked and inferior (on paper) opponents in the last week. Maybe those upsets will put things into perspective for some IU fans who seemed to lose hope after IU’s two losses.

    I think the Big Ten season is going to be a wild ride.

  5. The fact that there are always going to be upsets is completely unrelated to Crean’s incompetence in coaching basketball. Crean’s team is not a top ten team. Crean’s team did not even make the CBT last season. Stop comparing with Arizona, Kansas and other top ten teams. Crean’s team still has a lot to prove. Three games away followed by OSU at home. Crean sucks. Now we’ll see. Let’s hope the players have learned to overcome Crean’s phony sideline influence by now.
