I noticed early on that Ellis seems to do all the little things that make a team better. He could be putting up lots of points, but knows what his role is for this team.
Jamarcus seems like a good young man.

IU needs to take care of *business* this weekend and keep improving on defense. Lots of up side to this team. Go IU.

The Kramer kid would have made this (IU)team GREAT.

Didn't think anyone could find something to complain about but two people did. Leave Jamarcus Ellis and his aunt alone. This was a nice human interest story. Just accept it for that.

The Big Ten Network sucks!!! IU has the best freshman in the country and one of the best players period and we cannot see him.
Everywhere you turn someone is trying to bleed more $$ out of you. It is really sad when you cannot even watch an in state COLLEGE game without paying now. Again, this is still college and these kids are supposed to be amateurs. They cannot accept even a dime for playing, however, you are allowed to exploit them for the big bucks. This is total crap and people need to start letting the school administrators know about it. Especially the alumni!!

Yep. The article didn't say Jamarcus spent the last two years in Florida, which is no easy commute, particularly for someone who is prohibited by the NCAA from making much money.

Well, Jamarcus has lived in Florida the last two years and may not have had money to fly or drive back and forth between Chipola Junior College and Chicago. Give him a break.

All you have to do is switch to dish service. It doesn't cost more.

I don't follow. When Myles was President at IU he clearly said sports was not going to be bigger than academics. Myles increased compenstaion for professors and less $$ to the 'sports' folks....NOT. Another examples of Myles being a hypracrit. Also there appears to be more advertising/commercial signs in COLLEGE Assembly Hall than there was prior to 2001. Get use to the new IU.

These are ridiculous stats!!! If we can keep these stats going, it's going to be a great season

Indiana is shooting 58 percent from the field, 54 percent from 3-point range, and 77 percent from the free throw line.

Dish sucks, you have to sign a contract and when the weather sucks, you lose your picture. If you have comcast, sign up for the "extra tier" which should give you the big ten network and once the season is over, cancel it, there is no contract with comcast.

Have I missed something the last couple of days?

Last I knew there was no Big Ten Network on comcast.

Myles Brand is... and the Hurtin' Hoosiers are going to have all kinds of sanctions levied against them. Never knew Hillbillies liked to cheat so much, but seeing how they kept Bobby for so long, it does not surprise me.
