Looking ahead to the end of the season, I really hope nobody transfers. Through all of the lumps we will all endure this year, there is the expectation that the tough scheduling and had work should pay off with a huge leap forward next season. It would be pretty devastating to lose any of the Fresh and Sophs on the current roster.

I think that ILL make shots in the first half and keep it close.

Miller will make adjustments to the IN defense at halftime, ILL will cool off, and ILL will lose 80 - 65.

This is a game where I hope that Underwood can press the entire game and move the tempo up while playing someone tall enough to guard the rim. Giorgi is not that guy.
I won't be mad at the high frequency of the 3 pt shot because to beat Indiana @ Indiana... We are going to need everything to go right.

I think we’ll be ahead at halftime. Ditto second paragraph though.

Didn't view this as a win before the worst start in recent memory, not going to start looking for one now.

Will be interesting to see if Ayo covers Langford. The talent difference between "elite" recruits (like Ayo in the 30s nationally) and uber-elite recruits (like Langford in the top 10) is usually exacerbated by physical differences (in this case about 2" and 20 lbs). Seems like the job may fall to AJ.
