Indiana to host Duke in Big Ten-ACC Challenge

  • 06/08/2017 11:01 am in

Indiana’s non-conference schedule just got even more daunting.

The Hoosiers will host Duke in the 2017 Big Ten-ACC Challenge. Indiana played at Duke in the 2015 Big Ten-ACC Challenge and lost, 94-74.

Duke went 28-9 last season and is a top 10 team in nearly every preseason top 25 for next season. The Blue Devils return Grayson Allen and Marques Bolden and welcome a recruiting class that includes Wendell Carter, Trevon Duval and Gary Trent Jr.

Indiana will also play at Seton Hall in the Gavitt Tipoff Games and at Louisville in early December. The Hoosiers will also take on Notre Dame in mid-December in the annual Crossroads Classic at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

In addition to this season’s challenging non-conference slate, Big Ten teams are also expected to play two conference games in early December during the weekend of the Big Ten Football Championship game.

Other notable Big Ten-ACC Challenge matchups include Louisville at Purdue, Michigan at North Carolina, Wisconsin at Virginia, Miami at Minnesota, Notre Dame at Michigan State and Northwestern at Georgia Tech.

    You just can’t help yourself but to make personal remarks; “not my fault you never learned to count past ten”. No basketball stuff there. It really isn’t a big deal, just don’t pretend like you only talk basketball stuff, or that you have some moral high ground to stand on. You “stick your nose” in other’s business every time you police the forum to call out anything you feel is inappropriate. I still appreciate you and your style. Just realize others can speak too!

    There would be more scoring in a Priests vs. Eunuchs match-up.

    I just hope if that punk Grayson Allen tries to trip someone it’s super-thick Freddie McSwain. Kid needs to be pimp-slapped.

    So, I guess your point is “keep your mouth shut when other people attack you.” They’re allowed to make personal remarks about you, but you’re not to respond.
    Got it.
    Thanks for that information. Now that I know the rules of conduct only apply to me, I’ll be sure to accommodate everyone.
    BTW, you should know that Tailgate has posted all of 39 comments on ITH. How he would know any of my history is questionable. If you really want to know the type of person he is simply click on his name and see his posts to people on other sites. He’s rather nasty at times.
    Since you’re giving me advice, I’ll give you some, be careful who you choose as “bedfellows” as their reputation rubs off on you.
    Now I’ve had enough being a pin cushion for you and some others.
    The rhetoric is very one-sided and none of you can see that.
    It’s also very tiresome.
    Nothing more to say.

    I thought the exact same thing.

  • HoosierOne

    Excellent! You want to be the best you have to beat the best! Bring on the big time teams.

  • IdahoHoosier

    You will take my comments as you choose. My point was just friendly advice not to be a hypocrite. Others notice. Have a good one.

    Beat down…

  • dwdkc

    Well, if you put it that way, I’ll take (c), thank you very much.

  • dwdkc

    I agree the OP is pushing the “can’t lose” theory. I think they can lose if they come out and get embarrassed, but I find that very unlikely. Way more to gain than lose here. High profile game with the Hall rocking. A win is great for confidence and image. A well fought loss doesn’t hurt at all and can even provide some confidence. And the team is getting important experience of the type Izzo teams get every year early in the season, which seems to work out well for them.

  • Thanks for getting my point, unlike some others. Purple font on that second bit for those in the know.

  • Apoc

    I would have to agree with you. I remember a certain thread where I commented on Bryant’s flailing around and slapping the floor…nothing malicious keep in mind and not even in response to anything that’s ole man posted..that ended in me having to block ole man due to him not being able to contain personal insults and keep on the subject of basketball. Don’t worry, you’re not the only one that feels this way.

  • IdahoHoosier

    See I knew I wasn’t crazy! I’ll lay off Ole Man and I really appreciate his insight into basketball matters. It just isn’t fun being on the receiving end of the insults and policing that happens here sometimes. Some can dish it but can’t take it. Ole man certainly isn’t the only culprit, but the hypocrisy and indignation stand out.

  • Tailgate

    Oh, I’ve been here all along, Old Man. You’ve gotten me banned before. I am VERY aware of how you operate, sir. And YOU know how you conduct yourself as well.

  • Tailgate

    And for the record, unlike you, I never claimed to be perfect. But what you’ll NEVER see me do is go initiate a conflict, and almost simultaneously go and TELL on someone to get them booted. That’s bottom of the barrel IMO. You’re a self proclaimed old man, but I don’t know of 2nd graders to be that childish.

  • Ole Man

    No, your behavior got you banned.

  • Tailgate

    Lol right. Keep up the good fight, old man.

  • Ole Man

    Stop blaming others for your own conduct.

  • Tailgate

    I take responsibility for my part in a conflict. Stop projecting.. it’s YOU who initiate conflicts and set people up to get banned because you can dish it, but can’t take it. I’m done with you.
