I'll go with UNC, Ohio State, Kansas, and Wisconsin. Both Big Ten teams lose so It's UNC VS Kansas with Kansas winning

:roll:

Dude I'm getting tired of your homer ********. It's sickening to read. Iowa won't touch the top 5 this season. Holuska is their only player, and he's overrated at that.

Btw, Indiana is looking pathetic. I dont' care what the score states, they were outplayed and outhustled for the better part of 35 minutes until UL unraveled. If UL didn't committ dumb TO's they would be winning this game. But of course Sanctions will pull it out. Pretty sad when you can barely play with a team that only get's 8 scholarships. Without DJ White against a good team, they're going to get smashed. UL's man defense is terrible, which is why Calloway can get to the rim at will. Wow is all I ahve to say for Indiana, just wow.

Illinois won by 45 tonight but Jamar Smith got injured, don't know how bad it is but he lit the lamp tonight.

My Laffy boys should have taken down Indiana tonight. They played thier hearts out, I will have a few words for Andrew Brown when they get back. It looks like they will have a solid season this year, those boys can play.

Lafayette should have a solid season in the Patriot League, they have a good group. As for Indy, they just played sloppy tonight, lots and lots of fouls, I'm still proud of my boys effort. With Bucknell losing all their stars no one should stand in their way.

I dont think it was a big deal at all he just wanted his attention. This happens all the time and if it wasnt Knight it wouldnt even be getting mentioned right now. I love Bobby Knight he is a real coach. He will fight for his team but he expects perfection out of you on the court.

I agree completely. I was just watching Doug Gottlieb spout off about how it's just unacceptable and blah bih de blah blah blah....I would have loved to have been coached by a guy like Knight when I was a kid. He epitomizes what a HC should be, imo. I bet you that kid looks him in the eye next time he comes to the sideline. And he'll be a better player because of it.

I agree 100% I would have loved to play under a coach like Knight. That kid is most likely going to school for free to play sports. I didnt even go to college but if I could have went and played under Knight and he smacked me because I was doing something wrong. Then so be it its Bobby Knight not some guy who isnt a winner. Knight is a WINNER. He will do everything in his power to win.

Not as bad as your team looked last night though.

The balls were going both ways though. But yes, they were terrible refs.

A few things I noticed about IU. And I know it's only the first game but here's what I noticed:

1) If DJ White goes out you guys are in TROUBLE!

2) You can't play man to man defense to save your lives. UL was slicing through you guys like swiss cheese. Although I will say you played better D in the last 5 minutes.

3) Besides Calloway I don't fear any of the guards on your team scoring wise. Wilmont needs a kick out because he can't get his own shot, at least from what I saw.

4) UL plays terrible man to man defense and you guys still had trouble getting into the lanes and scoring. That and you couldn't hit an outside shot to save your lives.

5) You don't have any "quality" bigs besides DJ White. Well I guess Mike White is ok but that'll be a problem this year for you guys.

6) You have about 3 or 4 athletic guys on your entire team. I think that poses a problem against a team as say Ohio State or a really athletic team.

7) You don't have a true PG in your lineup. I don't see anyone on the floor who can run that offense. Calloway is more of a 2 then a 1, and the lack of a PG will hurt.

8) Boy you guys should have and could have lost that game. UL outhustled and outplayed you for 35 minutes until they crumbled off of their own dumb mistakes.

Like I said I know it's only the first game but you guys looked BAAADDD. I don't think I've seen a worse performance from a Big 10 school in a long time. Can't say that I didn't enjoy watching you guys struggle though as an Illini fan. :D

Btw, Jamar Smith is likely out a couple weeks. God damn. We just can't catch a break this year so far. McBride gets a DUI, Randle pulls his groin, and now Jamar sprains his ankle. Great. :roll:

Jeez, after the past few years, you would think KU fans would stop looking past the 1st round.

Bucknell, Bradley....who's next, Buffalo?

There's all this buzz going around about Bob Knight's sideline incident last night.

Personally, who cares? He (player) wasn't looking up at Bob Knight; he needed to get his attention. It's a bunch of hooplah about nothing.

I agree that this is an overblown incident. On Mike & Mike this morning, Golic went as far as to say that if his son's HS coach were to do that to his son during a game, he wouldn't mind. The player's mom also released a statement saying she was not concerned. This whole thing is really being pushed by the media because it's Bob Knight. If Coach K did this, it probably wouldn't make any news outlet. Back off and let the man coach. The player was playing poorly, then he didn't look the coach in the eye. Are we so overly protective and maladramatic in America anymore that people aren't even allowed to touch?

Well said but sadly it has almost come to this. That kid is getting the chance of a lifetime right now to be in the same company as Bob Knight.

Not as bad as your team looked last night though.

The balls were going both ways though. But yes, they were terrible refs.

A few things I noticed about IU. And I know it's only the first game but here's what I noticed:
I didn't say that is why we played bad, because it was going both ways. Those refs were just terrible, I hope they aren't back tonight.

1) If DJ White goes out you guys are in TROUBLE!
Very true. We are not deep at all in big men.

Quote:
2) You can't play man to man defense to save your lives. UL was slicing through you guys like swiss cheese. Although I will say you played better D in the last 5 minutes.
The team came out completely flat and just assumed that Lafayette would lay down. We have a pretty quick team and I think as the season goes on, the defense will drastically improve from what it was last night because of how much Sampson stresses good defense.

Quote:
3) Besides Calloway I don't fear any of the guards on your team scoring wise. Wilmont needs a kick out because he can't get his own shot, at least from what I saw.
Most of are guards are shooters rather than scorers but I would look out for AJ Ratliff. He had a great Freshman season but suffered a hand injury last year that completely messed up his shooting and from what I saw of him last night he seems like he will be back this year.

Quote:
5) You don't have any "quality" bigs besides DJ White. Well I guess Mike White is ok but that'll be a problem this year for you guys
Our three other big men that will see quality time this season are Ben Allen, Lance Stemler and Mike White. White and Stemler are JUCO's and should improve as the season progresses and Allen, well I don't know what to think about him. He came from Australia last year and hyped himself up with the media and made us think he was something. He wasn't. He is a Dirk Nowitzki style big man and we had him playing inside a lot last year and he was just too scrawny. Over the off-season he put on 30-40 pounds in muscle and it will be interesting to see how he plays this year. Obviously our main weakness is in the post, just like last year.

Quote:
6) You have about 3 or 4 athletic guys on your entire team. I think that poses a problem against a team as say Ohio State or a really athletic team.
Calloway, Ratliff, Wilmont, Armon Bassett, Joey Shaw, Lance Stemler and what little I've seen of Xavier Keeling, are all athletic players but I see what you mean, we have a lot more shooters than scorers.

Quote:
7) You don't have a true PG in your lineup. I don't see anyone on the floor who can run that offense. Calloway is more of a 2 then a 1, and the lack of a PG will hurt you.
Calloway is a true point guard and I'm assuming you're saying that he is not judging only from last night. When he got his chance to start at the end of last year, the supporing cast was playing well and we had a great post player in at most times which made it so he didn't have to do so much on his own like he was forced to last night.

I'm love/hate with Knight but I definitely do not think he should be reprimanded for what he did last night. He was simply getting the players attention. If he had actually hit him it would be a different story but he didn't so I see nothing wrong. If a coach that did not have the history that Knight has I don't think this would be even close to as big of a deal as the media is making it out to be.

That would be sweet.As I speak for all KU fans it would be great to beat Ol Roy for the title
Jeez, after the past few years, you would think KU fans would stop looking past the 1st round.

Bucknell, Bradley....who's next, Buffalo?
yes, actually

And Randle is likely out a week. Man, talk about no luck. Oh well though, at least this is only non-conference. Get em healthy and get em back for conference.

But damn; 3 of our best players out right now. Yikes. :shock:
