Robert Johnson returning to school for IU

That one helps. As opposed to Blackmon, where I think a return might have actually stunted Miller’s ability to implement his culture, Johnson is the kind of guy I think he can reach and who can play the two way game Miller is likely to want to emphasize. IU is still a team without a […]

Blackmon Jr. remaining in the Draft

Not a surprise to me. He often looked like a guy who’s mind was elsewhere last year…and remember that IU’s season took off two years ago when he got hurt. Blackmon is a very gifted scorer, mostly a shooter really. That’s about where it ends. He’s never shown a willingness to work defensively and even […]

Archie Miller to IU

This is a good get for a second rate program like IU.  This will FINALLY put the death knell to all those “OSU in waiting” stories out of Ohio. I have no doubt he coveted that job, but I was of the opinion that if IU is interested, you can’t wait on whatever might be […]

Crean Out 

Now we enter one of the truly fascinating periods in the college game…an IU coaching search. There are Alford rumors but it could go a ton of ways. Marshall? The guy from Butler? Archie? This is an elite job. And also interesting to see what happens with Crean. Mizzou is off the table. Looks like […]

Indiana makes history 

Indiana makes history Wow. I have not a bit of hate in my heart for Tom Crean but that is an indictment. Yes, there were injuries and yes they were significant but this team had plenty of talent, more than enough to make the Tournament in a year such as this. When you’ve got wins […]

Crean’s Seat Is Piping Hot 

That seat is piping hot. Injuries they’ve had would explain why they’re not contending for Big Ten championship. They don’t explain 5-10, given what he’s still had to work with. I personally think it’s a bit over 50% likely he’s done. Just seems as if the air in the program is all used up. Too […]

My Top 10 Teams As Of Tonight

1. UCLA – Best win anybody’s had by far when they took out UK in Lexington, and have done nothing since to invalidate that. Questionable defensively but that offense just might be good enough to make it irrelevant. 2. Villanova – Something about them has me thinking no repeat but there’s still a lot to […]

Spring Big Ten Preview #3 – Indiana

LAST SEASON – With IU, the question was never about firepower. They had one of the better offensive groups in the nation. What wasn’t known is whether the Hoosiers could defend well enough to truly contend in the league and make a run in March. Early results were not favorable, as IU looked bad in Maui and got their doors blown off against […]
