Until about 24 hours ago, the doubt was cautious, compartmentalized. It’s now more general, and it’s spreading. When we started talking about Indiana’s 2010 non-conference schedule, the conversation generally split games into two categories: the eggshell-soft home slate and the ...

On to the next step

BLOOMINGTON — It has been suggested, perhaps not unfairly, that Indiana’s early-season schedule will eventually weaken it, perhaps critically. A November filled with nameless opponents, it was feared, wouldn’t provide Indiana enough tests to get the Hoosiers ready for the ...

BLOOMINGTON — I’m sitting here in front of my computer, and trying to figure out what to write, and it is next to impossible. We could touch on Tom Pritchard’s impressive day (Five blocks? Dang.), or Maurice Creek’s return to ...

The Minute After: Evansville

  • Ryan Corazza 11/21/2010 3:53 pm

We’re so 2004. Yes, it’s true, Inside the Hall is adding to our media arsenal a weekly podcast. It’s not Bill Simmons — yet — but hopefully it fills a little bit of a void in the IU basketball world. ...

Believe It: These Hoosiers are maturing

Notes on a 67-44 Sunday night win over Wright State inside Assembly Hall: First 10. Wright State took away the 3-pointer from the Hoosiers. Couple that with its impressive ability to draw charges — and IU’s penchant for silly turnovers ...

Tuesday morning musings on Ferris State

  • Zachary Osterman 11/09/2010 8:46 am  

So I’ll be the first to admit that I didn’t visually see any of Monday’s exhibition against Ferris State, though I did listen to basically the entire second half through the watchful words of Don Fischer (and Royce Waltman). So, ...
