Is somewhere in the middle an option? I’m of the opinion that you should probably throw out these outlier type of performances when evaluating a team. Indiana probably isn’t as good as it played at Michigan and it certainly isn’t as bad as it played on Saturday on Penn State. The Minnesota game probably doesn’t even belong in the conversation because IU won that one and the Gophers have played some other Big Ten opponents close.

The problem, of course, is that a team that doesn’t perform consistently is going to have a tough time stringing together a long NCAA tournament run. Success for the Hoosiers is highly dependent on good shooting and taking care of the ball. Can the Hoosiers perform at a high level in both facets over the series of several games? It remains to be seen.

James Blackmon Jr. probably wasn’t going to have a great chance to get drafted by an NBA team before his injury, so missing the entire conference season with a reported five-to-nine month recovery time means he’s probably back for another season. He wasn’t on many, if any, draft boards before he got hurt. That’s not a knock on Blackmon Jr., who is an elite college scorer, but he needs more time to improve and this injury is a significant setback.

@kyl470 on Twitter: Please settle an argument for me. If IU wins the NCAA tournament Yogi becomes the best player in IU history. True? False?

False. I didn’t really have to think about it, either. Regardless of what goes down this season, I’d still rank Calbert Cheaney, Scott May and Isiah Thomas as my top three players in IU history. Cheaney is the Big Ten’s all-time leading scorer. May was a standout on the historically great 1975 and 1976 teams. Thomas led the Hoosiers to the 1981 championship.

@ItSjEnKiNs on Twitter writes: Any word on other strong non-conference match ups this year? Anymore info on Louisville or Kentucky talk?

I think the highlights of next season’s non-conference schedule are out there: at Duke, Creighton, Notre Dame and Maui. As for Louisville, Fred Glass was pretty clear recently that it’s not going to happen next season and he also shot down the possibility of a game with Kentucky next season. You can watch what Glass had to say about those topics after the jump:
