The Morning After: Minnesota

  • Eamonn Brennan 01/26/2009 9:12 am  

All we are past the mopey part of the season now? I’ll admit, I’ve gone through some weird attitudinal shifts toward the 2008-09 Indiana Hoosiers — going from depression to blind faith to cheeriness and back again a couple of ...

The Morning After: Staying positive

  • Eamonn Brennan 01/14/2009 9:24 am  

There are only so many things to say from game to game about the way IU is playing. For example, what was there to say after Illinois? The Hoosiers were destroyed by a far superior (and still underrated) team. Michigan ...

The Morning After: Illinois open thread

  • Eamonn Brennan 01/12/2009 8:19 am  

After the massive disappointment last week against Michigan, I didn’t expect much out of Saturday’s game at Illinois — that’s a tough place to play, and Illinois has sneakily been really good this year. Their tempo-free numbers belie a team ...

The Morning After: Michigan, or clapping alone

  • Eamonn Brennan 01/08/2009 7:30 am  

Hey, so that was fun, right? Haha, just kidding! That wasn’t fun at all! That was precisely as much fun as a rusty ballpeen hammer to the eye socket, only less violent, so long as you don’t count “throwing an ...

The M(onday) After: Iowa, or not so bad this time, actually

  • Eamonn Brennan 01/05/2009 7:00 am  

Ah, the Hoosiers. Just when I thought I was out … they pull me back in. It’s not as though I had given up on the season in any sort of meaningful way. Actually, I’d given up on the season, ...

Heads up: TMA coming Monday

  • Eamonn Brennan 01/04/2009 2:01 pm  

The headline pretty much says it all: TMA will arrive on your pixelated doorsteps tomorrow morning. I blame the delay on Enron, Arthur Andersen, Kelvin Sampson, and Jim Nantz. I have no idea what that actually means. But yeah: tomorrow.

The Morning After: Northeastern, or, Serenity Now

  • Eamonn Brennan 12/23/2008 10:28 am  

At this point in IU’s young, ugly rebuilding year, I feel confident in a few assertions: IU is not a very good basketball team. IU is not going to be a very good basketball team. IU is not even a ...

The Morning After: TCU

  • Eamonn Brennan 12/11/2008 8:23 am  

Whoa, right? After a couple of bad losses to teams we didn’t even look competitive against, IU was given a coming-home gift Wednesday night. That gift, the TCU Horned Frogs, was about as inept a basketball team you’ll see all ...

The Morning After: A brief time of sincerity

  • Eamonn Brennan 12/04/2008 8:00 am  

Usually, The Morning After is a combination of the following: 1. Me talking about basketball in a barely informed fashion, including but not limited to offensive sets, efficiency, tempo-free/possession-related statistics, and how irritating it is when people take too many ...

Dan Dakich rules Joe Hillman on Indianapolis radio

  • Eamonn Brennan 12/02/2008 10:47 am  

Last year, Dan Dakich was at the unfortunate intersection of the Kelvin Sampson fallout — and the issues Sampson’s kids had both been dealt and had created for themselves — and Dakich was the one that eventually kicked Armon Bassett ...

No TMA this morning; open thread instead

  • Eamonn Brennan 12/01/2008 8:55 am  

As my one final act of irresponsibility from my week-long vacation, I’m ignoring The Morning After yet again today. Sad. I know. But I was traveling home through treacherous snow all day, didn’t see much of the game, and I’m ...

No TMA this morning; Tuesday open thread instead

  • Eamonn Brennan 11/25/2008 7:20 am  

Sorry to disappoint, but there will be no The Morning After feature this morning. I’m currently in the process of my first week of vacation in more than a year, and I plan on using it by staying away from ...

The Indiana Daily Student’s brilliant basketball guide cover

  • Eamonn Brennan 11/19/2008 7:51 pm  

It’s no secret that this site has deep, unconditional love in its heart for the Indiana Daily Student. Why, it’s where we honed our own journalistic skills, only to then waste them on trivial pursuits like “blogging” and “web editing.” ...

The Morning After: IUPUI

  • Eamonn Brennan 11/19/2008 8:25 am  

It’s going to be hard to write these little features of ours for a while. Why? Because we literally don’t know anything about this batch of Hoosiers. We know a few things, sure — that Daniel Moore handles the ball ...

The Morning After: Your 2008-09 Indiana Hoosiers, I think

  • Eamonn Brennan 11/16/2008 3:07 pm  

It goes without saying that the beginning of this Indiana basketball season is unlike those that have come before it. It is the second year in the last three that have seen IU with a brand new basketball coach, but ...

Inside The Hall + The Dagger = Good things for everyone

  • Eamonn Brennan 11/10/2008 1:21 pm  

Oh, hello there. Here’s something you may be interested in: Alex joined me at The Dagger for a quick Q and A previewing the Big Ten. Alex lent his informed opinion; I messed around. Par for the course, really. Go ...
