· The point guard by committee situation and if it can hold up over the course of the season
· The growth of James Blackmon Jr. as a more complete player
· Indiana’s bench and how it is evolving eight games into the season
· The overall state of the Big Ten at this point

    Thanks guys. Really enjoy listening to these discussions with national media.

    So, Mike ranks Allen Fieldhouse ahead of AH. Damn.

    When OG guards the 4 we can always put JM on a good 3; or vice versa.

    Yes, we can win with JN because he can guard the opposing PG. It’s not always about offense.

    Yes, JBJ is “doing his job on defense”.

    Loved “Morgan is a weapon”.

    Naturally, Butler/Louisville will be super tough without OG at 100%.

    I like DeCourcey a lot. He’s always kept it real. Not kissing AH’s goods which we all love to hear. And he also always backed Crean’s method of rebuilding IU basketball which was a tough idea to support for a long time. Man, Devin Davis and Emmitt Holt could’ve been such good players.

  • Well, then, let’s just hope that OG is at 100% by then. 🙂

    Thanks for the synopsis. No time to listen to something like this, glad to know the highlights.

    These are some awesome topics. These guys got it going on. Most of the time I’m a big DeCourcy fan.

    I’ll take the DD we have now much more. Emmitt who? Is he related to Tori or Ussain?

    I thought the B1G discussion was somewhat illuminating. I think we get the impression that this is a down year for the conference as some of the middle of the pack teams are really struggling, but he seemed to think that the conference as a whole might surprise some people. He seemed to think Maryland, of all teams, had the inside track to the league championship based on their strength of schedule.

    I’ve not seen Mary play. Definitely surprised with that one.

    Emmitt Holt. He was the one that hit Devin Davis with the car on Halloween night. Seemed like a nice kid that made a mistake. Then got caught drinking again and got the boot. Rightfully so. But he was a nice kid and played so well his freshman year when we had no big man. He was 6’7 and played like Juwan, just a grinder.
