    OSU and Louisville has more talent than IU. They also hired better coaches.

    They Louisville and OSU had more talent I’d just not totally correct. Either way the coaching difference is obvious.

    Because he’s going to lose at Wisconsin?

    Where were you 3 days ago?

    I remember when you weren’t an emotional basket case, Bsmitty. We miss that guy...

    they had more mature teams and even so OSU barely made the tourney last year.

    One loss at Wisconsin and you guys start shoveling around the same tired bullshit.

    that’s because we’ve had the same BS basketball shoveled before us for almost 20 years. Let’s see at the end of year. Will be same thing.

    There you go. Lol. One bad loss at Wisconsin doesn’t mean the season is a bust or that IU can’t matter again. Why paint it as such?

    For god’s sake, you didn’t think we’d take some lumps in the road?

    Stop making excuses for this. There is something wrong in the coaching when you play with this lack of energy.

    His teams wilt on the road.

    I’m ready to be at a point we don’t look at Wisky as a blowout loss on the road. Remember this isn’t a good wisky team either

    Another in a long line of games where Archie has them completely unprepared. I thought it might’ve been bad team chemistry last year but now I think it’s more coaching.

    road game in the big ten for an untested team. Tough to come to too many conclusions until we see this happen a few more times this year.

    I agree it’s only one game, but let’s not pretend people are complaining because we are going to lose the game. The issue is were not competing and getting thumped by an average Wisconsin team.

    Be honest here:

    You aren’t embarrassed by this performance against a 4-4 team that is probably their worst in 25 years?

    ya, just like vs. FSU?

    First road game of the year. Let’s give it a few more before shitting our pants and wallowing in the stench.

    It’s not to be ignored but I thought our first road game would be some kind of ordeal. Weird you guys didn’t.

    You don’t think this team can still have a good year?

    Uconn wiill beat us by 25 if we play like this. Three years and counting without an ncaa birth. We gotta have the craziet fan base who gets the worst results in the country.

    I get that but it’s weird that our fans treat our season like a college football season. IU will still have a good season despite a clunker or two. Sparty lost to a crappy IU team at home last year. It happens...

    I agree w/second part of statement. Def worse program vs size/passion of fanbase. I do expect them to come out and play well against Uconn.

    Ordeal?

    This is an absolute shit show!
    I don’t mind losing on the road but I hate a team that looks poorly coached, no fight and going through the motions.

    oh, you hate them? Lol

    but we get you were spending more time here after IU football turned the corner since there wasn’t much to complain about any more. My guess is that Archie makes you pretty scarce around here too. Lol
