    I feel like Crean doesnt think we can win any games. saying we're overmatched. we shouldnt be playing these games vs. these teams. WELL PREPARE THE TEAM TO PLAY THESE GAMES. KEEP IT COMPETITIVE! the fans arent expecting 3 wins coming up. we expect them to be competitive. and to show us signs the team is improving. CHEER UP COACH CREAN!

    I think Crean is using some coach talk, I also think Crean as we should is being realistic….MD, Pitt, Ky….I LOVE IU but I know we are not going 3-0 in our next three….

    I think our best shot is against Pitt. Key to tonight's game is Rivers staying out of foul trouble. Rivers and Dumes are the only guys on the team who can stay in front of Velazquez and Dumes D focus on D ebbs and flows with his offense. I don't even want to imagine Hulls trying to guard him or trying to get the team into the offense, which he couldn't do in PR. I don't know a thing about their big guys. Looks like they match up size wise. If they are athletic Pritchard is in trouble

  • I think he's taking a page out of the Bill Belicek media playbook. Even when they were winning Super Bowls you would have thought they were the underdog the way he spoke to the media.

    Cooper I am not sure what has happened to Pritchard. Crean said coming in he had a nice post game with jump hooks with either hand…..He was the best frosh at the start of the season last year and now, just seems to be 'out there'…He has a big body, good footwork, just needs to start using it…..I like his toughness but he needs to be on the floor tonite and make some plays.

    I thin between Rivers, Vj3, Creek, and Dumes we should be ok with Greives if someone gets in foul trouble…. The keys for me is IU putting MD in foul trouble, getting some decent post play, and IU getting a series of concecutive stops…….

    all i know is i used to coach a 9th grade AAU team (not even close to a big or well known one) and I'm not sure he was anymore coordinated or skilled than players I saw at that age. If you are going to be that plodding and slow you better have great fundamentals and skill…so far he has neither
