    Gotta give Dustin kudos…Perea has some high level basketball instincts. I’m impressed at his poise with so little action under his belt.

    A Jordy Hulls dedication…Did he not abuse the 3-point line tonight?

    This tune was originally sung by ‘Love’ in 1968, but I do like this ‘UFO’ version from their album appropriately titled, “Shoot Out the Lights.”

    Hulls SUCKS!!

  • Hoosier Clarion says:

    H4H,

    The other thing I noted about HP he relishes the competition. He is already adjusting his timing to the speed and size of the players. His stroke from the FT line is consistent and smooth. When JH gets his playing time back there could be 5 candidates for 6th man. In our time we may never see another 10 like this years 10 at IU.

  • Laffy says:

    If Hulls isn’t a lottery pick in the NBA draft, it will be a travesty….and proven conspiracy by the Establishment.

    Anyone that can put up 6 3’s against the 284th ranked team in the country DESERVES to have their jersey retired and pick which NBA team they want to play for.

  • iamahoosier says:

    Is this the IU blog or have I accidently stepped in sh..?

  • Laffy says:

    Please tell us what is allowed on an “IU blog”?

    Is it only glowing posts about our team?

    That’s odd because I just got lectured about “diffrence of opinion.”

    While everyone is slobbering all over Jordy’s 3’s last night and Yogi’s 10 assists with zero turn-overs, they ignore the fact one of the WORST teams in the country shot almost 60% from 3 point range (10-17).

    Last I checked, it’s defense that wins championships.

    And our guys can’t guard a wet paper bag.

    But, hey, at least Will can still prance around pointing at his head everytime he makes a 3 even though he can’t stop one of the teams in the country from abusing us from down town.

    It’s all about “having fun” doncha know…..

    If we make it past the Sweet 16…or even to the Sweet 16…..I’ll be amazed.

    And if we don’t, all we’ll hear from the “real” IU fans is “The refs screwed us.”

    Yawn.

  • iamahoosier says:

    You can write whatever you want….but you look like a “basher” not a fan.
    IU is #1 in the country in Scoring Margin…PPG-OPP PPG..that’s pretty good defense. Also # 1 in scoring, more opportunities for the opponet..they are not going to be trying to take away the 3 when up by 30.
    I can’t believe your picking one of the most talanted teams we’ve ever had, and I’ve been watching for over 30 years, to miss the sweet 16….Like I said- “basher”.
    Don’t say we….we is for “real” IU fans!

  • Larry says:

    Last time I checked, the team with the most points at the end of the game wins championships. Nitpicking the stats on one particular game seems defeating on the over all viewpoint of the game. I’m certain that one stat each game by our opponent can be alarming for some…..some.

  • Larry says:

    this forum is sounding more like a Purdue Boiler forum in the Journal & Courier. Only thing is, those fans bash the players, nitpick stats, armchair QB a team that has not knocked off a #1, 2 & 5 team the previous year. Lose to Bucknell, Ivy Tech & Harrison college this year, lol!!!!

  • Harvard for Hillbillies says:

    Way to go Larry!!

    Most these nitpickers would marinate a fabulous cut of steak.

    Wow..Santa Clara giving Duke fits. Duke SUCKS!!

  • Geoff says:

    Duke is definitely overrated… Santa Clara is good though. 11-2 with both losses in OT. They also have 3 current 1000 pt scorers on the team, and another guy that will be by the end of the season. I’m gonna say they are an 11 seed that wins a first round game against someone like K-State or Cinci…

  • Laffy says:

    Well, I’ve never been one of those who say, “Unless you do nothing but shower your team with rainbows, you’re not as REAL fan” while burying their head in the sand over all the problems.

    Of course we’re “#1 in scoring margin”…..we play mostly nobodies.

    It’s not “pretty good deense” to let one of the worst teams in the entire country shoot almost 60% from 3’s.

    we always hear IU fans BRAG about “being the smartest fans”, yet you guys do nothing but point at “look at how many 3’s Jordy made” while ignoring us getting torched beyond the arc….by nobody.

    And then CRY we “aren’t respected enough in the polls and should be # 1.”

    Yawn.

  • Laffy says:

    Oh….and congrats for crying “just one bad game” for about the 10th game now.

    Your door prize is a a set of blinders in case you wear your current pair out.

    And a parrot that says nothing but “one bad game” over and over so you don’t have to say it anymore.

    And please forgive me for laughing at the cryfest about “nitpicking” when ANYONE will tell you it’s DEFENSE that wins Titles.

    Not raining down 3’s on a JV team from Florida.

  • Laffy says:

    On Peegs several people are whining how Duke “flops all the time.”

    Of course, if one of their own fans said that, they’d be bombarded by the “real” fans with:

    COACH K IS A HALL OF FAME COACH SO HOW DARE YOU EVER QUESTION HIS TACTICS. YOU NEED TO QUIT NITPICKING AS WE’RE #1 IN THE WHOLE FREAKING COUNTRY.

    See, I look at our team like a “real” person….not someone with blinders on and then when things don;t go well, start crying how “the refs screwed us” (which I see CONSTANTLY on Peegs) or “the liberal media hates us” or “The Establishment has a conspiracy against us” or any of that other VICTIM crap.

    Heck, using your rules, I guess you HATE AMERICA any time you rip Obama (Oh. Wait. That only applied when Georgie was in charge. Now, it’s your “DUTY” to rip the Prez….rolleyes).

    If I start whining we don’t get enough # 1 votes in the polls, can I be a “cool guy” and “real fan” like the rest of you?

  • Harvard for Hillbillies says:

    Hopefully we won’t get Santa Clara in a first or second round game…

    It’s these type of teams that get completely juiced up come tournament time and stop potential storied runs to championships by a far superior team on paper(based on overall SOS, depth, conference play, etc).

    I wonder what Plymouth’s SOS was when Scott Skiles put his small town team on his shoulders and marched(pun intended)through sectional, regional, semi-state, and into the world of legendary Indiana high school tales as he sunk clutch bucket after clutch bucket to ultimately claim a state championship for Plymouth over East Chicago Roosevelt…? Back in the day when we had a truly unique and unparalleled, all-inclusive, winner takes all, singular high school tournament wrought in wonderful tradition. How on earth did we ever allow Establishment-minded tiddlywink traders to abuse their power, goof it all up, and sell out our storied one class tournament behind the veil of do-goody corruption bargained off in the cronyism a politician’s closed door? It’s stuff like SOS numbers and getting overly hung up on mountains of statistical crap piles to produce our personal crucifixion crosses as labels any past performance to be the ultimate indicator of what a team or individual will do tomorrow that screwed us out of a ton of beauty and mystery in the game.

    Heaven forbid to let the “cupcake” have a chance to shock the world and prove the pundits wrong that undervalued the power of collective hearts bonded in purpose and greater will to win.

  • phenomenal1 says:

    Laffy, Jacksonville only shot around 40% on the game, just because they made 60% of their 3’s means nothing. I know it seems crazy, but SOMETIMES people make shots. Teams often play their absolute best when they go up against a top team. You seem oblivious to the fact that we won by 34 points. If this team is as bad as you make them out to be, then quit watching. All that is ever posted from you is how horrible they look. The last I saw, we had a top ten defense (save ur debate about playing nobodies because we beat the #15 team by 24 points and georgetown by 10+) If you want to nitpick them to death, you and debbie should start your own blog, everybody here seems to be tired of reading your bullsh*t. Go back to LAFFYette with the other toiletmakers

  • Laffy says:

    Dustin and Jeremy and the others…..are you going to jump down Hillbilly’s throat for his “vile” language?

    (Gotta LOVE how that hypocrite always CRIES about MY language then throws out “effing” up and “sh*t”…..which is all I ever did).

    Hell, he was even talking about sperm before…don’t see that on too many “family” boards.

  • Laffy says:

    Oh, and speaking of vile language, you gotta love how p1 ended his post to me.

    Yeah, yeah……..shooting 60% from the 3 “means nothing” even though we’ve SUCKED at it for YEARS.

    And who has a gun to your head making you read my posts, crybaby?

    We could write a book with all the excuses you “real” fans have.

  • Harvard for Hillbillies says:

    My apologies…Meant to say ‘sperm whale’ from Laffyette the other day.

  • Podunker says:

    The sun rises in the east, it gets cold in the winter, and Laffy’s obsession with HforH continues.

  • Laffy says:

    It’s called “calling out his hypocrisy”, HH’s dad.

    He’s had countless meltdowns about “my” vile language when he “cusses” all the time.

    And speaking of obsession, you sure do worry about me 24/7/365……..

  • TJAUBURN says:

    46The defense we are playing now will not work in the big ten! It’s good enough against the cupcakes but big 10 no way! Jordy is a pure shooter and the poster boy for hometown kid makes good but on defense is unable to guard anyone and gets little or no help from anyone else.With all the big guards in conference it will be tough.Dipo and Remy might be the best combo there switching in and out as needed.Shehey hustles no question but seems to lose his man alot this year that never used to happen!Watford is still MIA in my opinion he has skills but never is motvated against weak teams and a no show against good teams. Not a NBA first round pick not playing like he has been.We cannot count on out scoring everyone with out defense plain and simple!Dipo has been amazing,Cody is getting better every game even though we still don’t look for him near enough.Perra is a beast in the making. We need Hollowell.Yogy is just getting started!Without defense we cannot win the conference.Everyone is good and you cannot take anyone for granted!Iowa will be ready! GO HOOSIERS!

  • Larry says:

    laffy, I wwent back thru numerous forums on each game. I cannot find negative comments about 10 straight “bad dames”.

  • Larry says:

    Yea, he sounds like a couple of the Purdue Punks now.

  • Laffy says:

    How, exactly, is Cody “getting better every game”?
