    That was seriously brutal to watch. I think the only thing we did well was not foul on their alley oop dunks.

    Our guys played hard and defended fairly well. We just don't have anyone who can create their own shot, and, of course, our shooting is poor

    We did not even try to stop the dunks.

    You know, we did do a terrific job of not interfering with any of Rutgers alley-oop plays.

    We didn't even give up 60 points tonight. They had a few spectacular plays, but giving up 59 points is okay. The defense was there tonight.

    IU is performing up to their usual expectations for a program that is now firmly entrenched in the lower echelon of the Big Ten conference.

    It’s been this way for most of the last 20 years. I’m not sure why fans get upset with this performance? We are a lower tier program. That’s just who we are. Other schools have better recruiting. It’s not difficult to figure out.

    It doesn’t have to be this way. Put people in charge who care about winning and stop handcuffing the program.

    Well, we should start with the coach.
    Part of his job is to motivate and develop his players. It’s obvious that he can do neither.

    I know some were super excited after Ohio state but that's why you wait a few games before claiming its turned around. This teams ceiling is probably from a bottom of 8-12 to max 10-10.

    I’ve got us at 7-13 for the conference.....and that may be generous but we are right where we should be given the talent and a coach still learning how to lead a program.
