    Being co-chairman of the Archie Apologists, here is my take:

    If and when Archie wins another game, Glass will give him an 8 year extension;

    Archie will change the lineup and start Green just to piss some of you off;

    Playing faster and not taking care of the ball is the new offense;

    The new defense includes the center lingering at the top of the key to stop the PG, and you count only deflections; and finally

    Hopefully we get into the NIT so that we can cut down the net and hang another banner!

    dws

    For those of you that don't know what that means...it means dripping with sarcasm.

    Actually...hope IU comes out with enthusiasm. Iowa is not a top notch defensive team; but their offense works since they have Garza. An offensive machine like Garza opens up the rest of the offense if they have shooters, and they do.

    Iowa 68; Indiana 64

    *Make no mistake here. I want IU to win each and every game. If they just don't turn over the ball and contest the loose balls and play defense and get touches inside and...

    But, they are not tough. Our point guards are MIA. The upperclassmen aren't leading. And Archie can't push a rope. But it is his responsibility to do just that.

    Since I nailed the margin in the PU then there is no doubt I won't be close on this one.

    85-75 bad guys.

    Iowa 78 - IU 62

    This is a looney edition to Hoosier basketball so IU could very well win this game, playing inspired ball. That said, my spirit has been broken with that bitter loss to Purdue. I will be watching tonight for amusement purposes only, disengaged from earlier expectations of a once promising season.

    Sad but nobody expects us to beat Iowa at home so far.
    I too sadly expect us to lose at home again tonight.
    78-59 Not us.
    I usually try and stay optimistic (glass is always half full). I am also ready for a new direction after three years. My bottom line: if we can't beat the boilers at home then we totally suck and need to change some things.
    Go Hoosiers!

    IU likes to F with the fan base and give hope. Everyone is shocked and Devonte drops 30 to piss everyone off. 82-69.

    This is the most difficult prediction of the season. This team has been undergoing a player leadership change since the Northwestern game. Archie has given the rest of the season over to the players, but new leaders have not emerged. Green still has the reigns, and Archie will not intervene.

    Iowa by 10

    I would think a fast start would be critical to any upset chances.

    AH will likely be like a library to start the game. The entire fan base has had it. The effort against Purdue was inexcusable. So......even IF we do play hard (25% chance), the team won't get the kind of backing they did v. MSU, MD, Purdue. The fans will be mere observers this game.

    Plus, we match up horribly against Iowa.

    The rest of the season will likely be painful.

    I think Iowa is gonna really like this pack line that IU plays.

    Iowa 85 to 63. Iowa doesn't play much D.

    The really sad thing is they’ve beaten us 8 of the last 9 times we’ve played. When it gets to 9/10 they can safely say they own us.

    Or IU wakes up from this 2 week nightmare. They drub Iowa and close the season strong earning a berth in the NCAA.

    Isn't that the truth. I used to know the IU schedule by heart, now I record the game and watch it later so that I can minimize the amount of time I invest plus no reason to get my blood pressure up watching it live.

    Idk..Lots on here are saying Iowa is better than FSU ?
    Not close..
    Now Indiana has to play like they did against FSU.
    Then it's a win..

    Archie's proposed lineup/rotation changes will not come to fruition. The team will have no more heart/hustle/enthusiasm than it did during the loss to Purdue on Saturday. Iowa's offense carves up a listless Indiana defense, and Luke Garza goes for at least 30.

    Book it.

    not expecting Devonte to put up 30 tonight the way he's been laying bricks lately. If we can Garza in foul trouble we have a shot. His development has been most impressive.

    Besides the drubbing that Iowa is about to get, Hunter has gone 9-19 from 3 in the last 4 games he has played. Tonight he breaks out big time and rains 3's on Iowa.

    Considering, Iowa, isn’t a good defensive team, I think we score enough points to win at home.

    you'd take the runaway B1G player of the year over the 2nd leading scorer on IU's team? You'd take 23/10 per game vs 11/5 per game?

    No shit, Capt Obvious.

    Btw his name is Justin. Grown men don't resort to calling other grown men childish names. Especially one who would wreck your ass in real life.

    I think it's the blind squirrel theory. Or maybe the broken clock theory.

    He went off vs FSU, CAM moved him into the starting line up and he's played like shit, for the most part, ever since. And I'm so sick of his one handed entry passes. He does things we got 'coached' out of our system in 4th grade.

    Once again, we lose by around 15, give or take a few.

    I can already hear it now, "Really proud of the way our guys fought tonight. At the end of the day, you have to hit shots. Our rebounding should have been better. Our free throw shooting is what it is. A couple of our guys just need to see the ball go through the basket." etc.

    Double digit loss. Iowa is a nightmare for how we defend with their all American post surrounded by shooters.

    Maybe they'll be off tonight.

    I'd like to see Arch go with a 4-1 offense tonight. His brother did that at Arizona when he benched Gabe York and went with McConnell and then Stanley Johnson, Rondae Hollins-Jefferson, Brandon Ashley and Tarczewski.

    Let's see Rob and Hunter, Smith, TJD and Brunk.

    Reduce Al and Devonte's minutes significantly.
