It’s only a matter of time before the complete Indiana hoops schedule is released, but for now, we’ll have to live with bits and pieces being revealed.

In a release this afternoon, ESPN announced that Indiana will travel to Mackey Arena on February 8 for a meeting with Purdue.

The 7 PM tip will be IU’s only Super Tuesday appearance of the season.

Here’s the complete breakdown of Super Tuesday appearances by school for the upcoming season:

– Purdue (4)
– Michigan State (3)
– Ohio State (3)
– Illinois (3)
– Wisconsin (2)
– Indiana (1)

No love for the following schools: Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Northwestern, Penn State.

    Love to fast forward a few years to see that Purdue has no Super Tuesday or whatever they decide to call it by then and IU has the most.

    Please oh please let the Hoosiers win this matchup on Feb 7th. How sweet that would be since the PUkes are supposed to be stacked.

    The game at Assembly Hall is a must this year. Almost beat them with our best player out and theirs still healthy last year.

    Wow! This’ll be a tremendous challenge for what is still a pretty young team. And it looks to be pretty early in conference play. Hopefully Creek is back and grooving by this point, and Watford has shown the big time leap in scoring and rebounding that I believe he is capable of.

    I’m sure Purdue will still defend pretty well without Kramer, but I’m sure they’ll miss him as well.

    not much love for the Hoosiers either, but I think we all have a feeling that will change soon enough!

    Only one appearance for us on Super Tuesday. This, just like so many other things, will be different in the not so distant future.

    the date is actually feb 8 @ 7pm

    I’d like to point out that w/ the Big Ten having so many Thursday ESPN games now, Super Tuesday isn’t quite as big as it used to be. IU played on a few “Throwdown Thursday”s, or whatever ESPN calls it, last year (the IU/PU thriller at Assembly Hall was a Thursday ESPN game). So I’ll be interested to see how many Thursday and Saturday ESPN games IU has.

    I live in Cleveland and with ESPN, CBS, and the Big Ten Network last year I don’t think there were many games that I couldn’t get. I expect the same this year and look forward to watching the games. I know a lot of people were mad about Big Ten Network because your cable provider has to carry it but hopefully they do now and it makes it great for someone that has been transplanted like myself to see the games.

    Go Hoosiers

    Actually that is a pretty good power ranking of the Big 10 in the pre-season 1) Purdue, 2) MSU, 3) OSU, 4)IL, 5) WI, 6) IU. It even reflects the annual bias against WI, who always finishes higher than projected!

    PU will probably not be on at all next year unless they televise the game with us. We, on the other hand, are going to be on there a lot in the next 3-5 years.

    As long as I get my Erin Andrews fix I don’t care what day of the week it is

    But is it a bias against Wisconsin or is it an admission that unless you’re a Badger fan their style of play bores the ever-loving hell out of most people?

    Your thinking is almost exactly what my thoughts were. Our trajectory is trending on the incline and PUke’s arrow will be in a southerly direction..

  • ArtistFormerlyKnownAs_Aceman07

    Yeah. I too feel like we’ll be seeing the Hoosiers on ESPN and other nationally televised games a lot more in the near future!

  • ArtistFormerlyKnownAs_Aceman07

    I don’t know what’s worse . . . watching a WISC game or watching Jon Fitch fight in the UFC? BTW, to all of you who don’t know Fitch is a wrestling style fighter who wrestled at PUke and his fights are always like watching a root canal!

    Probably both. And also that despite their wins in the regular season, they rarely do much in the NCAA Tourney. But in the Big 10, never pick them lower than 3rd.

    Root canals can be a lot of fun to watch on people you do not like very much. If you know a dentist the best seats are really cheap. The betting is difficult to learn. How exactly do you “double down”?
