    Great match up for us.  They are coming off a 15-16 record, losing their best player to graduation, and have a first year coach. C.J. Leslie is back, he was a McDonalds All American, it will be interesting to see him and Zeller go at it, but you have to like our chances. IMO the Big Ten could win 8-9 of these games.  Miami at Purdue? That’s a gift for the boilers. Duke-OSU looks like the best game, to me, UNC hosting Wisconsin is the only game where the ACC should be clear cut favorites, they could be ranked #1 by that time.

     Indiana got a big break here. NC State has seen better days.

     I guess the Zeller/Zeller matchup isn’t gonna happen until 2012 then… probably better for us that way.

    Won’t big brother be gone by then?

     Tyler Zeller graduates after this year; so if they meet up it will have to be in the NCAA tourney… Or in the NBA…

    Is it just me – why does Indiana always seem to play on the road – we were on the road last year – how do they determine this – I think it is bogus! 

  • Casey B.

    Frankly, I don’t think a team with three consecutive 20-loss seasons has much ground to stand on in complaining about playing road games. When we’re back to where we should be, I doubt you’ll feel there’s a bias anymore.

    I thought they were suppose to stack the games according to record – is NC State the worst team in the ACC – because IU was the worst last year in the big ten and I still think the home and away games should be split even for each team

    Don’t tell me you think NC State will have a bigger crowd than IU – I don’t think so! 

  • Casey B.

    I’m not speaking in terms of attendance – just saying I think we need to earn a lot more before we start worrying about whether we go on the road or not.

    I think this a very good match up for us. It’s not a super tough road environment like North Carolina or Duke. And they are another team that finished lower than expectations last year. I think it’ll be a good chance to get us a good quality win on the road, or at the least some good experience on the road.

    I have never seen any rhyme nor reason as to why certain teams play certain teams and why one team has to play on the road while other teams do not – I thought to be a FAIR challenge NOT MONEY driven – the teams should play as they finished last year or are rated this year

    for some reason my posting is not working… if you look on Wikipedia.com, and search for the Big Ten / ACC Challenge, they are reporting that the IU game will be played in Bloomington against NC State. Which is right?

    Teams get consecutive road games in the challenge all the time. It’s really not a big deal. I  like this matchup, IU hasn’t played NC State in a long, long time and this will be a good challenge for our team.

    The B10 looks to have drawn a number of advantageous matchups, the league could win the challenge decisively this year…

    Yeah I guess, wasn’t really thinking when I posted it haha

    Who cares what they are thinking? In fact from their attendance numbers, you are probably the first person to consider the match up from their perspective, so kudos for that……..but back to Indiana, you’d have to be clinically slow, or a Purdue fan, to think any road game in the ACC is a “guaranteed win”……..I’d say that’s a far cry from liking their chances

  • Casey B.

    And abiding by that line of thinking, we still deserve to play on the road following a 20-loss season, during which we didn’t record a road victory. That’s my point – we’re not in a position to make demands about scheduling.

    WI at UNC, IU at NC ST, Duke at OH St, looks good to me.

     It’s also where Mike Giomi spent his last season after leaving IU.

    My thinking is the NC State WAS NOT the worst team in the ACC last year – again I may be mistaken – we should have AT LEAST played the worst team in the ACC

    I agree, Miami “should be” a gift to the boilers.  It’s not a “BIG” game, so PU should win it.
