    The never ending massive greed of B1G trustees and executive leaders is the biggest threat to all involved!

    Why is the B1G playing a week early at MSG? Why move to a 20 game schedule? Why was lowly Rutgers added to the B1G? It all comes down to TV $$$$$$$$$$$$ and almost nothing else….. Sad….

    20 game schedule is a good thing. It just replaces two non conference games so it’s not as if it’s adding more games.

    I don’t mind the 20 game schedule but keep the tourney in Indy and Chicago.

    Robert P. & Devon’te I think Indiana will be much Improved Let’s face it Duke barring a major injury should Win it all next year

    I hated the idea of a Players Union for college b-ball. The abuses with this years “schedule for the money” policy are changing my mind.

    The record of best freshman classes winning the NCAA is abysmal. Kentucky has pretty much had the best freshman for the past decade; they have one championship which happened to be when they had 3 upper class men playing significant minutes. In that decade Duke won 1 with predominantly freshman players.

    One, they’re not even close to being in Midwest. Two, they suck.

    one of those 2 scholarships will go to McRoberts. It’s easy to forget he’s a walk-on, but he’s earned a scholarship on the team.

  • HoosierMumma

    Right? I mean I was always in favor of players unionizing, but this many one day turnarounds with one of those days being a travel day is dangerous for the players. People get hurt when they get fatigued. And for what? So the B1G can make more money while the players bear the burden of the decision. It’s by far Delaney’s worst decision, and I don’t see playing at MSG as that great of a benefit anyway.

    Would be curious to see the 3 point numbers at Dayton, it seems Archie does not seem to place any importance on shooting. Every player on this team seems to have regressed in shooting not only in numbers but in simple shooting form. How Al durham is allowed to have a shot that looks like that at the college level is beyond me.

    State College, PA and New Brunswick, NJ aren’t too far from each other, and I don’t see you complaining about Maryland. My point being, you’re cherry picking and the importance of geography has been eroding from this league for some time now.

    And glass houses, man. As much as I hate to point this out, US News has Rutgers ranked ahead of IU overall – Kelley gets high marks but we get dragged down by the value and high school counselor categories, but Rutgers isn’t cheap either.
