The biggest one tonight other tha ours is West Va @ Gonzaga.

I was thinking a 5 maybe 6 point spread in favor of the Bullgogs but it is at -9 right now.

West Va is a very tough Big 12 team and I could see them pulling this out. Kilicli is back along with a very talented sophomore class who should be even better in year 2 plus three major transfer who will all suit up this season. Matthew Humphrey is immediately eligible from Boston College via Oregon, Aaric Murray a big, athletic center who was a top 60 guy in 09 from Lasalle, and Juwan Staten who didn't have a great freshman year at Dayton but you could see the upside with another year or to in college. The speedy, athletic Staten certainly eases the lose of Daryl "truck" Bryant.

Don't sleep on the mountaineers or Lon Kruegers OU Sooners in the big 12 this season. Our ex coach has a pretty solid roster to work with this year and his teams see to overachieve when he doesn't have this much to work with.

Is Huggybear still the coach at WV? His teams are always tough.

Let's not forget the vaunted Davidson @ New Mexico matchup at 1 am CST on ESPN. Matchup of two of the better recent Mid-Majors.

I will be in attendance for this late night game... very excited!

The BTN wrote a personal note to Indiana fans explaining why their game is on BTDN tonight-

I'll be checking on the game at the Pit which is never an easy place for a road team to grab a W. Ex-Arizona State player Demetrius Walker and Kendall Williams are the faces of this team now that Drew Gordan(via UCLA) has graduated. Tony Snell and Alex Kirk need super seasons if the Lobos are going to challenge teams like San Diego St. And UNLV in the mountain West.

Good Lord, who peed in their Wheaties? Gimme a break, it's one game, and it's their ONLY game. Quit whining.

Wow, didn't watch, but Gonzaga DESTROYED W. Va last night. 84-50. Game was out west, which must be a little tough for Huggy and company, but nonetheless, that is a spanking.

We had better have our sneaks tied tight when we go out there in a few weeks.

Holy geez!
Did you read all of those comments?
I don't understand where they get their undeserved sense of entitlement.
Just because they are temporarily ranked #1, everything has to center around them?
I guess I didn't realize that the days were shorter because the earth is now revolving around IU.

Yeah, that's probably going to be a loss.

To be fair, WVU looked awful and totally disjointed. I don't think it could all be blamed on the time differential, either.

I think they were more so upset about having to pay for the service. If the game was simply just streamed then I don't think there would've been quite the fuss.

They still would have !!!!!ed that they should have been on ahead of any other game scheduled, because they're Indiana and they're #1.
Where were the Minnesota fans in all of those complaints?
We've got 4 games (counting exhibition) spread out over 2 months of service.
IU has 1 exhibition and 1 non-con (against North Dakota State :rolleyes on that list, both within a month of each other.
Plus, the replay is airing this afternoon.

All of these whining Hoosier fans can suck it...

...up and pay the $10 just like the rest of us.
