Upset Alert: #1 IU trailing Georgia (1-2) at halftime

Hoosiers trailing an awful Georgia team at the half, 30-29 in Brooklyn.  I love seeing #1's go down in most instances, but this would be an embarassment to the conference on a day where we've already taken our beating.  So pick it up, Hoosiers.

This upset won't happen.  IU happened to be cold in the first half, but Georgia has been fouling like crazy and half their team is already in foul trouble.  They have three bigs with 3 fouls and another with 4.  IU will give it to Zeller every time and UGA will either have to play soft or foul out.

OT: Anybody get a look at Oklahoma State freshman guard Marcus Smart? That kid is a player and he completely dominated NC State's much heralded junior guard Lorenzo Brown.

NC State is as talented as Michigan but they haven't been bringing the effort every night. I am sure we will get their best shot on Nov. 27

Bobby Knight may be senile. He just spent two or three minutes saying that this was an important possession for Indiana so they can get up by four. They were up by four the whole time he kept saying that...

IU was missing a fair amount of wide open threes that they won't miss in most games. The takeaway from this game is that their defense is really improved, especially on the perimeter. They defended the ball screen incredibly well.

And then as always they just have too many bodies and play too fast for most teams to keep up with for forty minutes. There are maybe 12 teams in the country capable of beating Indiana more than 1 time in 3 on a neutral court. Five of them are probably in the B1G.

I don't know.  He was a little too into Jordy Hulls, who did admittedly have a great second half.  Maybe homerism isn't the right description, but it felt like he was calling everything from IU's perspective, like he was pulling for them.  Indeed he is objectively critical, but you could tell who he wanted to win IMO.  Why wouldn't he call their games?

Pretty darn good, I'd say.   Was a reason he was #1.  Even though they lost, 15 points isn't a bad debut at all.  Interested to see how he progresses throughout his (only?) season.
