"It's not about last year or who's here or who's isn't here," says your head coach. "It's about getting out here and competing and seeing who is here, and that's where we're gonna go."

through Big Bird?
Block/charge fouls all go to the home team.
With a home court like Assembly Hall, any 50/50 blocking/charging calls are going to the home team 80% of the time. Saw that coming a mile away.
well we're still in it only down 9
That was a big call bc they were taking a timeout I we hit there
This is going to be a rough season. I like our squad but we're overrated and we're currently lacking depth in our big guys. I'll be happy if we're above .500 after B1G play. We're not there yet, not even close right now, but with the combination of our younger players and our recruiting, we won't be out for long.
We are a good squad, just don't have a big team. It's okay, we are well coached and our kids have heart. As I say this we are still coming back! Go Blue! Don't doubt us ever!
I don't think it's that crazy. We have very little presence in the post right now. If J-Mo goes down, we're screwed. And, I like our squad, but I don't like our schedule. We have a brutal run over our entire B1G schedule. Hardaway hasn't been playing up to expectations and it's tough to rely on Burke for so much of our offense. He's very good, but he's still a freshman and he's learning.
Bs call. Thj was out of control but that was no charge.
Player had established legal guarding position. You don't have to be stationary
Indiana can flat out shoot the lights out. That crowd is crazy and they have the best shooting team in the country. I don't expect Michigan to win but I want to see the team play well and not get pummeled. Keep under 12 by half and see what happens.
Hey - even the announcers agree!
That's how bad it was.
STU!!! Feed him the ball
STU!! 5 POINT GAME LEHGGOOOO
that last one was from kokomo
Good god they are money from inside the 3-point arc. It's frustrating, maddening, and sickening.
Well... Christian Watford is good
Burke. Free Throws. Make them.
Morgan kind of bailed out Burke right there.
How is that a foul. These refs are really really bad.
BS foul again!
Ball doesn't lie as IU misses the free throw, Stu could've had a layup though if they didn't call a foul though
3 possession game
players in that bldg and they both have the same last name
c'mon Hardaway take over
is nice. Just face the fact that Indiana is good. For us to win in Bloomington is hard to ask of, but I always have faith. Still in the game at the half too. Hardaway will step up in the 2nd half.
You got one thing right - Watford is really good.
Burke almost made that shot. Eh, so-so half but seven points is doable. Coach the boys up and we have a chance.
I'm not one to complain about the refs and don't have an issue with "home court advantage" but this is ridiculous.
The only possible call I disagree with is the Novak block/charge. After watching it several times, however I agree with the call.
Novak got his feet there in time to take the charge (which is why he was livid) however, his arms were not straight up - he fouled the guy with his arms extended before he took the charge.
The Hardaway charge was correct.
I hate how the announcers always insist that we just shoot 3s and always play a 1-3-1. Watch the game, fellas.
IU shot 55%. That will hopefully come down.
We didn't play well. Being down 7 isn't all that bad for how we played.
Mich was down 33-18 with 5 to go in the half when Belien went off on the team; Michigan outscored IU 14-6 to close out the half. Always good to see your team fight back in hostile environs. Way to go Blue.
PSU beats Purdue by 20.
Cut the bitching about the officiating, srsly. Novaks block was a charge, and thj was called for a bs charge. Other than that it hasnt been that bad, and I definitely am of the opinion that indiana normally gets dukeesque treatment from home officials
Someone in this thread doesn't like us complaining about the refs.
Hey guy, the internet was made for complaining.
Well im complaining about the complaining then, lol
Guys, Suck it up. We all knew the refs would be terrible due to the game being at Assembly Hall. Heck, even Jalen Rose admitted that on Nat'l TV today.
What do we have to do to get calls go for us at Chrysler?
Have a more raucous atmosphere... Seriously though, we probably do get some calls go our way, but not as much, at crisler.
fouls are 7-7. Watford will cool, THJR will heat up.
Novak! Great start
And 1 for THJ
With Zach in foul trouble and on the bench, we need Stu to come up big.
Burke needs to work on those FT's.
Burke. Free Throws. Make Them. SERIOUSLY.
"I don't think we have met before..."
Timmy has to make that pass. That is an easy 2 we missed out on.
