Coaches' timeouts are worse. Basketball teams should get one, full stop.

While I agree that there have been a number of games in which the team clearly lacks the intensity needed to win against quality opponents, we only need look as far back as the state game for evidence that level of commitment is possible.

Instances of drug related death from prominent members of the entertainment industry remind me that regardless of circumstance, life presents us all with challenges. It's how we react to and deal with our challenges that ultimately decide our level of happiness.
Prayers to his friends and family. The world has lost a great creative mind today.

It wasn't just that he was shutdown. The fire we're used to seeing from him wasn't there today and he seemed lethargic. Not to speculate but there may have been something going on with Stauskas we aren't aware of.

Walton and Irvin continue to improve and contribute. We'll face few players the rest of the season as dialed in as Ferrell was today.

While I would love to see Stauskas go off, it's quite refreshing to see that Walton can step up when he needs to.

We're shooting as poorly as I've seen all season; and we're only down two on the road at IU. Feeling good despite the score.

The more I see from Irvin, the more I expect him to be our X-Factor come tourney time.

The problem is, with so little information being given there is no way of knowing what to compare it to. I've found nowhere online that explains what the specific issue was. It's because of this that I wonder whether they may be sandbagging a bit. His demeanor and body language on the bench don't suggest to me that he is in any serious discomfort following the surgery. I think about how much the team will be forced to grow without him and almost think the team would be better because of this fact if and when he does to come back.

However I in no way meant to disrepsect the skill the team has on the court right now. Realistically, in my mind, we need more consistent post play in the event we matchup with a team which excels in that area of the game. Regardless there is certainly plenty to be excited about with this team.

I've looked a bit online and haven't been able to get any real details on the back problem or the surgery for that matter. I understand that there is a strong chance he doesn't come back; I was just hoping for some additional information.

You guys have helped immensely. Based on your feedback I've realized that I'd be better off waiting until next season so that my donation will have more of an impact

I'm seriously considering buying a pair of season tickets this year for the first time. As I am not an alum and haven't owned season tickets in the past I'll be starting for square one. I'm curious as to what I should expect in terms of seat placement and what not. Any insight whatsoever as to what I should expect year one and moving forward would be much appreciated.

I can't speak for anyone else, but my beef with Borges has been apparent inability to anticipate and/or identify weaknesses in opposing defenses efficiently with regularity against upper tier defenses. There will undoubtably be instances where a blitz will put Denard's inability to block to the forefront, but if Borges is able to diagnose these instances at a respectable rate there will be successful results, likely for big gains because of the space said blitz would open in addition to the occasional sack. Denard's skillset would in some ways limit the offenses playbook, but I find it difficult to believe that there isn't a way to manage the risks involved and get both players on the field in a way that would lead to a positive net result.
