Eric Gordan can't hold my jock.
Stop Picking on IU

IU's offense has gone from motion to slow motion. Dakich doesn't have what it takes to motivate this team. McCallum recruited most of them and Dakich is trying to run "his system." Arrogant nonsense. If you have been watching the substitution patterns closely (Non Hoosiers pay close attention. This is an important part of basketball!) since Dakich took the helm, they have changed completely. You can't expect to change coaches, change offensive and defensive schemes, change patterns, etc. this late in the season with the expectation that the win-loss record is going to get better.

Eric Gordon would be playing better if his teammates (with the exception of DJ White) were not standing around waiting for him to score. Individually, this team has a lot of great players. They lack the leadership on the court and off of it to pull it all together before the end of the season. They will win two games in the big dance before being sent packing. Too bad that Sampson had screw things up for everyone. They really had a great shot at the Final Four.

I understand that Gordon thinks this team will be fine, but that is what every player says to the media. In my opinion the way this team is acting and playing, they are just as much of a disgrace to Indiana basketball as Kelvin Sampson's phone calls and violations.
I am sick and tired of seeing every player complain and whine to the referee's after every play when a basket is not made. Suck it up and play boys. I am also tired of seeing players be suspended for disciplinary reasons. This is Ellis's second time being suspended and that is uncalled for.
This team needs to come together and start playing hard and as a team or they will be one and done in both tournaments. Stop playing with the "whatever happens" attitude and start playing to win.
This team has had more players suspended for disciplinary or personal reasons as I can remember as a Hoosier fan. Get it together or get the hell out of town. You had a chance to be great then fell apart. At least , do it for D J.

Enjoy the next 5 years in the Big 10 basement because that's where IcheatU is going to be after this year. Your top recruits are bailing on you like rats from the Titanic, because that's what IcheatU is. A sinking ship. That's what you get for hiring a lying, thieving cheater for a coach. Your basketball program is a disgrace to the nation. Yeah, we're lousy this year, and we admit it. But I'd rather be lousy honestly than be good because of cheating. And guess what?? You're not even good any more. LMAO!!
I know Sampson made to many phone calls but he got know advantage from doing what he did. You would know that if you bothered to look. All you want to do is Bash IU for getting Gordon and Sampson never cheated to get him. It was EJ choice to go to IU over your team. You will never get better as long as you keep Weber as your coach. Look what he has done with other recruits he lost and the player who was a starter that he choose to suspend for a year. If Weber was so lilly white tell me why he did not just kick this guy off the team? That is why EJ
chose IU over Weber he knew Weber,the cry baby, could not coach.
IU will never be a cellar dweller in the Big ten like your team. We will
beat you every year as long as you have that cry baby for a coach. IU
will find a good coach and pull out of this mess and I will remember
your predictions and remind you when we kick your back side. Count
on it.

OK back at you We will see, maybe Weber is a good coach like you think
but he better win soon or your fans will be calling for a new coach. Crying about EJ won't hold up much longer. Another loosing season and he will be gone. I don't see a need to continue this we can't agree only time will tell.
Good luck
