Well done Hoosiers. Keep playing defense like that against Uconn, Wisconsin and Michigan State, and this could be a very exciting year in Indiana basketball. however I dont want to take away what IU has accomplished so far. This definitely exceeds my expectations of what I thought this year might be. GO IU !!!!!

Congrats to the entire team and coaching staff. I was impressed with the effort and energy that the team displayed and surprised at half time with the great stats for the Hoosiers. The defense looked incredible and once the shots started to fall, there was no looking back. I realize that DJ & EJ scored many of the points, but, the rest of the starters and our bench players deserve to be commended. I think that we are ready for UConn and we should come away with a win on Sat: UConn is having a down year and we get them on our home court. Thanks Hoosiers for the great game. GO BIG RED!!!!!!!!!!

Next year there will be no DJ and Eric Gordon. Next year is going to be pathetic for IU. Enjoy it why you can ladies...
They'll still be in the top 3 of the Big 10.

Old Yeller, as long as our 2 time National Coach of the Year is at IU we will be a TOP 20 team, give him another 3-4 years and IU will ALWAYS be in the TOP 10. KS is that good, that is why there are so many haters out there..........

Yuma, TL needs time to reamp that whole team, he will be fine once he starts getting some of his players there, just give him time..........

Good win by IU, getting better and that is ALL we can ask for heading down the stretch..........

Very indicative of the way the season has transpired so far.....they fill it up on offense in the first half and then crank up the D in the second half. They are getting better working as a team each game. I would still like at some point for us to have a good start to a game. It seems like its the exact opposite in the Big Ten from what it used to be. Being the home team you used to say "lets jump on them early" and the visitors would say "if we can only weather the initial storm". Now its almost like the home team is saying "lets just stay with them early and then assert our will at the end". Not just with IU games. Its been that way with a lot of Big Ten games.

Must say I am glad to see we are finally blowing some of these lesser talented teams out. Most of the Big Ten teams shouldnt be able to hang with us.

Oh the doom and gloom folks have arrived early this morning!! HAHAHAHAH

I would suggest just sticking to worrying about your team and just know that IU will be fine. We have a bunch of very good basketball players returning. Plus with our recruiting class coming in I wouldnt expect IU to fall out of the rankings next year either. You should watch more college basketball. We are widely regarded as having some of the youngest talent in the nation even if you take away Gordon.

Nice try though. Be a little more scared next time why dont you. HAHAHAHAH

No one will be calling for Lick to be canned, just to recruit better players than hair brought in.

Good game by your squad last night and it would have been 30-40 if hair was still coaching.

Lick will be just fine when he gets a few of his own recruits and he won't have the NCAA snooping around when we do improve.

Good day cutters.

Another sterling effort by the Hoosiers. Against one of the worst teams in the league. At home. I can see why everyone is so excited!

IU now has the 234th ranked strength of schedue, according to USA Today, easily the lowest in the Big Ten and about ten other conferences.

234!

That has to be a record, doesn't it?

HOO HOO HOO HOOSIERS!!!!!!

The Big Ten is full of quality teams. That's why we're the Big Ten. Don't be such a hater. When we play Purdue we're gonna pummel them!!

When will you nay sayers let it rest? great win for IU, keep improving. It's funny alot of coaches that have played IU and other highly ranked teams say IU is as good or better. Gene Keady when asked what BT team could make final 4 listed IU first. Do you think it's out of his love for IU or does he maybe not understand basketball as much as you deadheads. And also less aware than you are all the writers, and coaches who vote on these rankings. I'm sure your all pointing out New Englands faults too.

Don't forget - Iowa beat Mich St. I quess that wasn't a quality apponent??? We are beating the teams we should beat and that's more than you can say about a lot of the other teams.
