    In all seriousness, is IU now #5 in the state? Looking at RPI, Valpo has just as many top 150 wins and only one loss to a team outside of the top 50.

    This isn't a fair comment. You do know that Yogi graduated last year and he's a tough one to replace. And OG was hurt a few games ago. So who knows if he is back to full strength. And the crowd just didn't seem to be as noisy as it usually is in Bloomington. And the students are on vacation. So forget the home court advantage. And it was an early night game and not an afternoon game. And, the refs just gave Nebraska that game. Watch the tape. And can you blame them......I.U. is still a little miffed because they are still thinking they are a Top Ten team, having beaten Kansas and North Carolina. Sort of living on past laurels. Just like I.U. and their fans have done for years. Winning 5 titles, but the last one over 30 years ago. So cut these guys some slack. The basketball team may not be in mid-season form, but the I.U. excuse mongers really are. P.S. Even when you hate the program, and you want to them win for selfish reasons to bolster our RPI, they still f*ck it up! Losers.

    How are the players supposed to get up against Nebraska? They aren't even a Top 10 team! IU might as well have played against UMKC last night. They're basically the same as Nebraska. IU should've been playing the Cavaliers last night in Madison Square Garden. IU plays for championships!

    All jokes aside Yogi bailed IU's ass out of a lot of games last year. They don't have a guy like that this year.

    I assumed and still do this was a tongue-in-cheek post. However, in listening to the Star beat writer on Dakich's show last week he kind of implied Fred Glass (IU AD) would rather be in a showcase event with KY, NC and another power than in the Crossroads. Probably they would prefer the recruiting coverage they would get instead of staying home and being the 3rd or 4th best team in the Indy classic. Sucks going from 5th in the country to 5th in your state!

    Osterman is a hack.

    Don Fischer was on JMV recently and said the Crossroads Classic was a tremendous event. He wants IU to stay in it.

    IU is quickly losing their marquee appeal--who's to say the showcase event with KY, NC, etc is even on the table for them any longer?

    If there were a Classic with Kentucky and NC I would think Duke, UCLA, Kansas, Louisville, Michigan State, Syracuse and a number of other schools would be picked before IU.

    Is IU in the Phil Knight tournament?

    IU is Adidas. I would imagine it would be a conflict of interest.

    It's limited to Nike teams. I think IU is an Addidas team.
