taber446.jpgRejoice, Hoosier fans: Our captain is back. Kyle Taber, he of 34 career points, will return for tonight’s exhibition against Bemidji State. The details, from our friend Chris Korman:

In what constitutes a major news story with IU basketball (the times are a changing), senior forward Kyle Taber is expected to make his return to the court tonight for the Hoosiers’ exhibition game with Bemidji State.

You’re right, Chris. Times are a changing. Last year at this time, we were booking our tickets for the Sweet 16. Now we’re celebrating the return of Kyle Taber. Did I mention it could be a long year?

Also, in case you missed it, Bob Knight is returning to ESPN. Good times.

    I hope he does not get hurt right away as often happens. I also doubt he helps us much

    Been awhile since I've been on here, but, although none of us thought we would be happy to hear news like this a year ago….I'm glad we'll have some leadership and experience (somewhat) back on the court, although we don't know how much Taber will contribute physically quite yet…

    Also, funny little tidbit I read – – “Matt Bowen, a 1995 graduate of Indiana is in his third year as the head coach of Bemidji State. He was a student manager for the Hoosiers from 1990-95…”

    He probably hurts the team and their developement with the more minutes he gets. Hopefully he just subs in for Pritchard when needed and thats all his role should be.

    Taber is desparately needed on this team if nothing else to provide the extra 5 fouls in the paint. Pritchard is a FR and the big guys have a hard time staying out of foul trouble early in their career.

    Idealy, I would like to see Taber at the 5 and Pritchard at the 4 with Jobe spelling them. At least we would resemble a basketball team with that kind of size.

    That leaves you with Jones at the point, Dumes at the 2 and Nick at the 3. So there are scoring options out there.

    Story, Moore and Roth give you the second three subs at the guard position.

    Good luck guys it's gonna be interesting. But I'm lovin' that 09 class!
