We had better players then. Paul, DJ, Egwu, Hill, Tracy(?). Recruiting bears the blame imo.

I really wish DJ would get more tick. He has length and athleticism and is someone that could be a huge contributor in the next two seasons when we get the athletic croots in. I would hate to see him transfer.

It's hard to not point to other attributes of that team, too. They played defense better, a carry over from the Weber era no doubt. They could implement what the coaches asked of them, another potential benefit of the Weber training. Not pining for Weber here, but something has been missing in the teaching department since his players left.

Well prepared once again under Groce. No offensive system, no movement, half hearted pick attempts. Sad

This is pretty much how I expected this game to go earlier in the season when the Hoosiers beat UNC and KU. The last few games had given me hope, however. Oh well.

Talk about being exposed and completely embarrassed for the second time in 3 games. Do we have anyone coaching these kids? They look like they are running around with their heads cut off out there.

Josh Whitman needs to be on a plane to California as we speak. This is pathetic. I've turned off more Illinois games in the last 2 years than I have in 20 years. Bring in Martin and turn this thing around asap.

Come on. They've almost tripled the score on us? Please. No interior defense no three point defense, this is ridiculous.

Totally agree. This team has no belief. I think they're better than they do, and you're right, that's very different than Groce's first team, plus any team that had Ray Rice on it.

Horrible horrible call again. Kid loses his dribble, Tracy reaches for it while he gets held and it's a foul on Tracy. HORRIBLE. I know we look awful and don't deserve to win, but the Big Ten must really want IU to win this game.
