    Finishing 8th isn’t going to get a B1G team to the NCAA. Maybe the NIT. I certainly hope that IU does a little better than that. I think 6th will get the job done.

    I do too and, imo, believe that is the lowest we will probably end up in the B1G. I think we will start slow, Coach will progress through the B1G season getting expected wins and maybe a couple of unexpected wins while trying to minimize injuries, and then have us peaking going into the B1G tourney. I really expect us in top 5 but wouldn’t be surprised to end up in 6th… as long as we are dancing in March 2018.

    I’m not just being overly optimistic here but I believe we’ll be pleasantly surprised by our upcoming season. I think if were being projected to finish 8th then we have to some extent devalued this team. If we have a starting line-up of Davis, Morgan, Hartman, Johnson, Newkirk then this is a really strong starting five!!! With three seniors!!! Our depth in the frontcourt is of course leaves a little to be desired. But we have depth at guard, lets not undervalue our shooters also. Johnson, Newkirk, Jones, and Green can all shoot it with consistency. I think a 4-6 place is very reasonable for us. And I looked at my crystal ball and it said Indiana beats Duke 81-78. Go Hoooooooosiers!!!!!

    4th in the B1G! Win all at home (MSU?). Beat NE, PSU, Rutgers, NW on the road (?). That is 12-6. Come on schedule makers.

    Guys, I wanted to say that I really enjoyed the format. I hope you continue it. I think it is a great way to get your insights into what is going on during this important off-season.
