Yes if they continue to spiral out of control for the next ten years and hit rock bottom - Then they'll be Purdue

Sampson is just not getting the job done. We should have gotten Alford when we had the chance, now we'll have to watch three more years of choking at the end of games. I mean, Michigan was practically giving the game away at the end.

We hit the bottom, and now we're back on the trail to respectability. As an IU football fan, you know about "Rock" Bottom. Mike Davis lost 1 game each to Michigan and Purdue in his tenure. KS has done that in his first year

Remember folks, these are still Mike Davis players. We've seen this before the past several years...inability to maintain pressure and hit buckets. There is only so much a coach can do, but he can't improve on 36% shooting. He can't call a foul with smith stiff-arms Suhr with 20 seconds to go. Bassett will have a solid college career but I feel it was evident that he's not ready to run a team on his own.

Something that has disturbed me recently has been DJ's play. If he's as NBA-ready as some scouts were predicting a few weeks ago, then a bad game should be 12 points and 7 boards. Not 7 and 4, or not 4 points in the 2nd half like against Purdue. Hopefully playing Minn, PSU and NU will help us get out of the rut and make a strong run into the Big 10 and NCAA tourney. And remember, the Colts struggled about this time too!

Oh, he's the guy that just lost by 32 to Michigan State. He also lost to Northern Iowa and Drake. Wow, must be a great coach, maybe we should hire him.

You think Alford is getting the job done at Iowa?

Wow another loss. We were outcoached and out played against Purdue. Today we weren't out coached because Amaker has to be the worst coach in the Big Ten. Anyone else look at coach Sampson yelling on the sidelines and think the players are not listening. I think we get thumped again at MSU.

Well passing the ball with two seconds to play was about as boneheaded a play as I have seen this year. I do not want to that these are kids etc... if your playing with the big boys, then play like one. A couple more losses and I think the NIT might look nice for us....

These guys are a work in progress. But Sampson generally has them playing hard and improving. They are just getting a hard lesson in the level of toughness required to win road games in the Big Ten when you get down to crunch time and everyone needs a win to keep their NCAA hopes alive. The past two games are classic examples: for IU, those games were "nice to wins" to improve their NCAA seeding. For Purdue and Michigan they were "must wins" to keep tournament hopes alive. Purdue and Michigan played like their lives depended on the outcome, IU was not quite able to match that intensity level. Now that we blew those two games, our remaining games become more like "must wins" so we will see how tough this team is and how well they can truly rise to the occasion. But overall, anyone who has watched this team over the course of the season (and the past few years) would agree that Sampson has things headed in the right direction. Nice wins by both Purdue and Michigan.

Another bad loss. Injuries were not the difference. Coaches need to work with DJ. He does not understand the game.

Regardless of what happens the rest of the year, this has been a fun week for Boilermaker fans. Thanks for the smiles, Hoosiers. Hey, at least both teams have young, up-and-coming coaches, right? On second thought, that is only 50% true. Anyway, keep lovin' life, everyone. Something isn't right if the highs and lows of our weeks rest on the shoulders of teenagers playing a game. Keep things in perspective, help someone who needs it, and enjoys the games as entertainment. See you in the NCAA's, Boilers.

Remember the old 7-foot center named Mandeville? He had the body of a 5'10" man, but he had a 14" tall head. Boy, IU sure could use his post-play and Brian Sloan's screens.

""Regardless of what happens the rest of the year, this has been a fun week for Boilermaker fans."

So that's what...one fun week out of the last 4 years. LOL. So IU has gotten into a little rut and lost a few consecutive road games. Guess what?!?! Your boiler lost almost every road game for THREE STRAIGHT YEARS. Enjoy your 5 minutes in the sun boiler fans.

I beleive after the Purdue loss...IU fans were saying how Purdue needed the win...But even with the loss the Hoosiers are in the Dance...Might want to rethink that one folks, it is said that what a team does in their last 10 games carries a lot of weight....O'Well at least in the NIT, IU might play one at HOME!!!
YO Hoosiers Rule in Indy, I'm still waiting....How many Road Wins in the Big Ten?

I was watching a train wreck this afternoon. IU couldn't hit a bull in the ass with a banjo this afternoon! What was worse was the lack of rebounding and seeing our senior point guard pick up his dribble forty feet from the basket. This team needs to get stronger mentally and needs some height to board with the big boys of the Big 10.
