Some Questions For The Indiana Hoosiers

January 18, 2012

IU Hoops

We can't believe it either, Tom.

OK, Indiana, what’s it going to be?

Are you the team that beat the No. 1, No. 2 and No. 13 teams in the nation? Or are you the team that lost to the No. 9 and No. 10 teams in the Big Ten?

Are you the team that hits big shot after big shot after big shot down the stretch? Or are you the team that awkwardly drives to the hoop as time expires, desperately trying to get fouled because you have no faith in your offense?

Are you the team that locked down offenses at key moments, putting yourself in a position to win? Or are you the team that lets inferior opponents dominate you on the offensive boards, giving them shot after shot to beat you?

Are you the team that put teams away once you built double-digit leads? Or are you the team that heaves up ill-advised shots early in the clock when it’s time to build the lead further?

Over the last week, you’ve been firmly the latter. Let’s get back to the former, please.

    They still seem inexperienced, that is getting up for the big games and then playing uninspired against lesser teams. Coach Crean needs to rectify this!

    Badgers pulling away (actually hitting 3s). . .

    To be fair, the loss to Minnesota wasn’t nearly as glaring as Nebraska, even if it was at home. Minnesota is better than their record would indicate, and they were absolutely deparate for a win.

    Losing to Nebraska last night was an anomaly. IU will straighten it out, and hey, you’ve split with OSU, so that’s a feather in your cap.

    About that 2 seed Lunardi gave them a couple weeks ago…


    • Tony Says:

      At that time, they would have been a 2 seed. It wasn’t a projection of where they would be in March, was it?


      • Spencer Says:

        haha no, i don’t put much stock in those seedings anyway. It’s like preseason rankings for football. Kind of pointless. Lunardi does a good job of predicting who makes the dance, but not their seed.
