    Not saying it has to be tonight – but at some point this year Crean and the Hoosiers need to have a signature win, a game IU isn’t supposed to get. As fans we need to get a sample of hopefully whats to come in the next few years. Big wins. Hopefully its tonight. Go Hoosiers!

  • Interesting. The only loss all-time Indiana has suffered at the hands of the Turtles is the National Championship game.

    Let's go Hoosiers. Keep the streak alive.

    any other gambling fans surprised by the line in this game? -4.5 seems a little low to me.

    Definitely a surprising line on the game. I figured it would be around 9. Hard to put a home team as a 10 point dog.

    But given it's a home game for the Hoosiers and Maryland has done nothing of any real value this season, that line actually seems just about right.

    Vegas has a history of being spot on, even in “less meaningful” games, so let's take this as a positive sign for the Hoosiers!

    seems a sucker bet to me, but the beginning of bball season is the best time to catch Vegas off guard, with them trying to figure out NFL, NHL, and NBA games. though rule 1 in gambling is to never beat on teams you have an interest in. that will conclude todays gambling 101 course

    I know we're dealing with differences in experience here, but Crean got out-coached in this Maryland game…
