    1. MikeC,
      I have no idea why it’s not allowing comments. Jon did have some issues with the blog last night, so maybe that has something to do with it. All my settings indicate comments are allowed. Anyway, feel free to chatter away here instead.

  1. I have not been more sad on the whiff today in not getting Bruce Brown than I can remember on a recruit in a long time. This kid would have rounded the class out nicely and he is so good, underrated. In the end, he is just a kid but to pick Miami, wow! Sometimes I wonder, he was an IU lock for the longest time…do you think shady business is till happening in Miami lol?

  2. Jeremy, I will chatter here since I can’t seem to add a comment on either women’s article? A huge win last night against Chattanooga. The defense in this game by both teams was outstanding! It was very tough to score! IU had 3 players in double figures as Buss with 16, Cahill with 13 and Gassion with 10 stood out. Buss also had 6 rebounds and 5 assists and also took 4 charges! We outrebounded them 33-32 and held them to only 6 offensive rebounds. One of the big differences in the game was IU causing 18 Chattanooga turnovers which led to 23 IU points while IU only committed 10 turnovers. Kym Royster had a bit of a coming out party with 6 consecutive points late in the 3rd quarter and the start of the 4th. She was very active and played very well which is what we really need from her. IU really showed some mental toughness in outscoring Chattanooga 19-6 in the 4th quarter with very strong defense and efficient offense. Thursday night IU will play DePaul at their place which will be a very tough test for our girls. They are traditionally a top 25 team every year and they run up and down the court like crazy! They normally, for the past several years full court press and run and shoot unlike any other team in the country. Good luck tomorrow night girls! Go Hoosiers!!

  3. IU women BB and T. Moren and staff keep program flowing along on upward swing. Have a coach + staff that is focusing on solid women bb foundation with a long term vision rather than flash in the pan. Buss is good because she is a skilled competitor, very coachable (flexible to do what is ask with good attitude), hard worker wanting to win and improve. In fact I think these characteristics will be a strength for the whole team this year due to T. Moren leadership and coaching ability. We will see how much women can improve.
