anyone know where iu fans would hang out before the game in state college?

I didn’t see the game but looking at the box score I have one question: Why did Hanner and Jeremy get so few minutes?

Anyone worried about Indiana’s stand around half court offense?

@aruss

Because they can’t play. Neither is capable of productive minutes at this point.

They certainly won’t be capable of productive minutes down the road if we don’t put them in. If you’re just going to coast in the second half, why not coast with your reserves? We may need that experience one day.

More than a few observations about tonight’s win at PSU:

1. I don’t think anyone will be making any legitimate criticisms of CWat for his performance tonight (but there’s always Debbie). He dominated the first half of the game and finished with 16 points and 8 rebounds. He scored inside, outside and on the free throw line, and played solid defense.

2. While I’m happy IU won big on the road, the start of the second half was the worst five minutes of basketball they’ve played all year. It looked like Crean allowed them to take a nap at half time! Can’t afford that when they play against a better team.

3. VO had good moments tonight, but this was his worst game of the year. He just looked a little off. Maybe the hype of being named the best player on the team got into his head.

4. 17 turnovers? 17 frickin turnovers against PSU!

5. For the height they have, IU is still under-performing in the defensive rebounding department. I think most of PSU’s points resulted from second, third or fourth chance shots. IU is not yet a good rebounding team.

6. Anyone who does not think Cody Zeller has a huge influence on the game is blind or not paying attention. How many steals did he have tonight? How many shots did he alter? He actually stole the ball from a PSU guard at mid-court took two dribbles and dunked the ball. If you watch him, he does a lot of little things that make a huge difference. He will get better and better, but he’s damn good now.

7. Two big ten road wins to begin the season. That is outstanding. I don’t care how good the opponents were, that takes a lot of pressure off IU to begin conference play.

@MN

I am a little concerned. We’re great at transition buckets, and at times our motion and passing is phenomenal in the half court. But you’re right. Too often we see out guys relying on shooting and athletic superiority instead of executing plays. Certainly not time to panic, but we’ve see that can hurt us.

Podunker – is this team capable of running the table in the B1G?

In theory, yes. In reality, no. OSU, MSU, IL and MN are all going to be really tough road games. And those teams will be behind IU (in the Big Ten standings) when IU arrives on their campuses, so they will be hyper-motivated. If IU can beat two of those teams on the road, it will be a great accomplishment. But even if IU wins all those road games, I don’t think IU can beat Michigan at Michigan this year.

Michigan is going to be TOUGH. Going to be a great game. I wish we had McGary. Oh well.

Ben, I hope it’s a great game, because if its not, it’ll be a Michigan blowout. But I hope Michigan is all beat up by then and that IU’s depth will have kept them fresh. This will be a marathon, not a sprint!

I agree PO. I am a bit disappointed in our bench. Not Remy or Sheehey, but I thought Jeremy would be a bit more productive, but isn’t terrible by no means. He will continue to learn. Hanner is a development, and Creek and Elston, I guess are just injury prone. This might sound Harsh, but if Creek gets hurt again, he might want to hang it up. I mean, his body can never get into full basketball mode, because of injury. Feel sorry for him. Elston, well bad luck has rode him hard too with I jury. Even when healthy though, I never saw a player who I thought would blossom.
