Ellis not on the trip; Cornley won’t play

Indiana junior guard Jamarcus Ellis did not accompany the team to State College. He has been suspended for disciplinary reasons.

Penn State will be without its best two players today. Geary Claxton, of course, has been out for most of the year with an ACL injury. Penn State announced that junior forward Jamelle Cornley will not play today. He’s finished for the year and will have surgery Monday to try to correct a knee problem that has plagued him most of his college career.

So how was the trip to Happy Valley? Is Happy Valley still happy?

Regarding Ellis’ suspension, I still recall his repeated tantrums during the Feb game at Northwestern. He totally lost his composure, not once but 2 – 3 times and wanted to go to battle with NW players. Dakich was unable to provide any sort of calming influence until finally he left Ellis on the bench to stew as the game came to a close.

Ellis came to I.U. with lots of fanfare; namely, being a highly regarded JC tranferee. Reportedly, he came to I.U. as a result of Sampson’s presence and may be one of the players most affected by Sampson’s absence.

Here’ hoping he gets his act together.

anyone know a better radio station than 105.1 that broadcasts the game? 105.1 NEVER comes in clearly at my home!

The attitude too-often displayed by Ellis is unacceptable. He’s a very good player, who was hampered in the Sampson stand-raround offense. Hell, they’re all hampered. Like cement anchors for feet.

This team screams for a motion offense. Behind at the half to Penn freaking State.

Unreal.

Jordan Crawford: no more stupid turnovers, please. You’re killing us.

Eric: in case you haven’t figured it out, the Big Ten refs, pathetic though they are, don’t like you. Stop whinhing for a foul. It won’t work. In fact, it works against you. Play on.

This team will not win more than two games in the NCAA Tourney. My mom could torch the IU defense which at times looks completely lost. Eric Gordon is given much too much freedom on offense.
As good as he is, he is not good enough to carry the team on his back. Also, there is a reason Ellis didn’t go straight to a college team like most players of his caliber. I really don’t care if he ever plays again. Let’s get good young coach and move on.
