Ok.....And.....still no regular season title since 19 fukin 79.. And outside of one season the past 4-5 years, Iowa has finished a mere 2 games better than IU in the Big 10.... IU has won like 4 of their past 6 games at Iowa....12 of the past 17 or 18 overall.

I laugh at Iowa.....NPOY, lose in 2nd round. Top 5 NBA pick, B10 tourney champs, lose in the 1st round....


Triggered.

Just going through homeboard thread for Murray commitment. Glad I was in the early stages of quitting drinking following 2015 B1G football championship game loss. I was having doubts about myself as a talent evaluator while I was learning how to sleep again without alcohol. Or I would be getting dunked on tonight on the homeboard for calling for a return to the Lickliter era of having a terrible couple seasons and then everyone halfway decent transferring.

Congrats on winning a 3 game series....Now, be the best team for 3 months----instead of 3 days. 不 不
So if a 3 month season > a 3 day tournament, does that mean a 5 month season > a 3 week tournament?

:cool:

Over those years that theyve had a NPOY(lost 2nd round) and a top 5 pick (lost first round), Indianas biggest achievement is a play-in win.

Win first before you talk shit.

Ill save you the trouble:

- John Groce bad
- Illinois upset in 2021 (never happens to other teams)
- Illinois loses 4/5 game with a player injured to an underseeded Houston team in 2022
- No Sweet Sixteen since 2005, so Illinois will never make one again

I mean, this isn't exactly rocket science---and a pretty lame example/comparison. Pretty sure we've all agreed, the NCAAT is a crap shoot, and the best team doesn't always win the natty...

But, sure....

What do you think holds more cred---Being the best team for 18/20 games----or being the best team for 3?

I think winning a Big Ten regular season title was far more important and desirable for us this year than making the arbitrary cutoff of a Sweet Sixteen or ~The Second Weekend~ yet we are constantly made fun of for it, lol.

Now that were defending Big Ten champs, Id prefer a Sweet Sixteen/beyond this year, but I agree with his point - we all know who the good/healthy programs have been/are, and nitpicking categories is just dumb.

ALways the past with me---yet you're the one talking about the past 3/4 years, or what not. I mean you start the game----then complain about it.

WTF?

If you cant see the difference between the last 3 years (as current as it gets as we arent in season) and 2013 accomplishments that you are 2 coaches removed from, I dont know what to tell you.

Again win some games first, hell just go above .500 in conference first before thinking you are hot shit.

This what? THe past is the past.....So Illinois and Iowa have been "good"/better than IU the past 3 years---OK? Not sure what that has to do with this upcoming year; which is what I was talking about. Then you and your Illinois b/f chime in with the "past shit", then get mad b/c I bring up the past.

Are you two sniffing paint or something?

With your talent Indians could be #2 in Conference.

But youve underperformed plenty recently despite having talent

I wouldnt be confident if I was an IU fan, honestly.

Meh, I don't care to much about what has happened last year, etc, etc....Just no bearing on this year.

IU has had talent----but not depth. THis year, they have both. Only concern I have with this team is shooting. It cost IU a ton of games last year, and possibly a chance at a Top 4 or better finish; lost 6 of their 11 B10 games by 5 points or fewer.

NO reason not to be confident. Lot of pieces returning off a 21 win, NCAAT team. Time will tell.

Time will tell.

Teams that are 12 seeds in the tourney usually dont take the jump you are expecting.
