The Time is here

Posted: 1/12/2013 10:12 AM

The Time is here 


Will we do it or not? The Crean puff season is over, Time to stand up and be counted, No more excuses, No more Bs. The freshmen mistakes excuse will not hold water anymore. I dont want to hear that the ref's stole the game from us.
No doubt in my mind that we have the talent to run over anyone in the country especially on our home floor, Just hope our coach is up to the challenge.
Our whole seaon ahead depends on this game, We have to defend our home turf.
Smoke them Gophers.

Hoosier Forever,
GO IU

We'll need a big game from Cody, and whoever backs him up. Eliason is a bit of a wild card here, as the benches will play a role.

Let the game begin. Biggest of the year for us so far. Go IU!

Some extra pageantry today. Hoosiers getting low on the introductions, let's hope they get low on defense.

Also hope Dante Exum is getting goose bumps.

10-8 IU at the under 16:00. We started out attacking the rim with Watford and Zeller, while Minny settled for jumpers. A. Hollins is hitting so far, though. Mbakewe took it to the tin when we switched to zone, Minny switched to zone right before the break--maybe that will open things up for Hulls. Hulls hasn't had an open look yet, with Hollins on him.

Hit them with a nice run there when Cody came back at the 10:23 mark. Both teams using the bench early, 9 guys have seen the floor on both sides so far.

Jordy has found the range, everybody playing tight defense. Great energy, great crowd, great game. It would be great to see Hollowell get off the schneid.

29-17 IU at the under 8:00. Hit 'em in the mouth.

Christian Watford has come to play, on both ends. Tremendous effort denying Mbakwe the ball with Cody on the bench.

Rodney Williams has been a non-factor so far, now sitting with two fouls.

Hoosiers doing work.

Holy Shizzle, Batman, up 23 at the half. We haven't played this well since the North Carolina game, but today we're looking even better.

We have played tenacious, frantic, marvelous defense. If Dante Exum doesn't have goose bumps yet, he must be a crocodile.

Don't let up in the second half. Keep pumping slugs into their carcass until it stops twitching. Send them home with a signature "L".

As Shon Morris said, our use of the zone defense has been effective in helping to confuse Minny. Our zone has been greatly ripped in the various message boards, but I think it's another very good weapon to have in our arsenal. No defense is always effective, although Knight refused to use a zone for the vast majority of his career--we did see glimpses of it in his later years at IU.

Reality is, there is no good defense against a smart team that passes well, moves well without the ball, and plays unselfishly. Kind of like IU in that first half.

Third foul on Rodney Williams. Let's go right at him with Victor.

Lot of horses on the floor. It would be hard to have another half like the first one.

Now three fouls on Hulls. Need Remy to step up. Minny has definitely picked up their energy level, while we have drooped a bit. Good timeout by Coach, get 'em fired up again.

Minor let down, Minny is on a run.
