Indiana University/Indiana Pacer Basketball!

1,750 posts in this topic

Yes I know we are watching our favorite football team at LOS this weekend going after win number 5 against another team moving in the right direction ....The Miami Dolphins.

Indiana University played and won their first exhibition game last night against Indiana Wesleyan 86-57, and are preseason number 1 in the polls as many college basketball fans know. :number1: ( I need a basketball emoticon :) )

The NBA season began Halloween night, and the Pacers edged the Toronto Raptors 90-88 with David West taking over in the 4th Quarter to begin 1-0. :thmup: :thmsup:

I am wondering if anyone is interested in doing some Game threads for Hoosiers, Pacers, and even some other college games. Last year we had some good Pacer threads in the playoffs, and this could (should) be the Best Indiana team since the Bob Knight Era.....Now the TON CREAN ERA!

If anyone is interested...I know it is back to an 82 game grind in the NBA.....college much easier to follow regularly....just let me know your thoughts. I would be glad to start threads or participate. I just wanted to gauge interest and make it orderly so we did not have two or 3 threads started, and it is OK with the mods. Thanks basketball fans. Let me know.....and of course GO :pass: :coltshelmet::coltslogo::coltshorse::coltsfb::colts: !!!!!!!!

As a lifelong Hooiser fan, I am very excited about this basketball season. However, I preferred the underdog mentallity of last season to starting off ranked #1 in the nation, because the only way to go is down. I think the Hooisers will be very good this year and have a shot at the Big Ten, but I don't believe this team is mature enough for National Title considerations this season.

I love this team...with Hulls and Watford, they seem mature. Cody is mature beyond his years. Mo Creek has been around the program....I hope you are wrong....but you just cannot will a championship...you earn it.

UK does it with frosh....maybe we can do it. I hope so!!! I know I will watch as many as I can Corndog!! :)

Having the Big Ten Network and a DVR helps me watch pretty much all of them. Referring back to your OP, if you want to do game threads or just make this the all purpose IU/Pacers thread I am in. I have actually had trouble finding a good free IU basketball forum.

Now this is something I have a huge issue with. It's stupid decisions like this, that makes me call the NCAA a joke.....As for the Pacers, their performance against the Hawks in the 4th quarter.....2nd most painful thing I watched that night....9 points in the 4th quarter? Really? Paul George wanted to take on that #1 role and so far he hasn't. He at times looked afraid to take shots.

This will be a fun team to watch this year, watching Zeller grow even more, hopefully Olandipo stays on the same path(definitely one of my favorite players to watch), Watford is definitely ready to lead this team along with Hulls, and in his first real game Ferrell looked like the real deal. It's also nice to see Mo Creek healthy, we will see how long it lasts.

As far as the suspensions this will slow their development, but it won't cripple the team. Perea was apparently ready to play, but Jurkin was going to be a project according to Crean. I think losing Elston hurt more, he wasn't a starter, but a very solid bench player that helped this team.

will still take the 7 or 8 they put on the floor in my opinion

Remy Abel looks like a stud Jay......and Sheehey flat out plays old fashioned Indiana basketball......hard nosed...my only problem is if another on or tw go down with injuries.....hurts the depth...would like Elston's mean streak in there too.

Yogi will wear the 11 proudly.....in fact his youthful smile reminds me of a young Isaiah.

Creek played and nailed two 3s....looked a step slow, but he is a ball player.....it will be nice to have his leadership...I liked the way he played Jay!!

YOU HAVE to see that show on Big 10 Network.....Kitchel and Tolbert....said Knight tried his very hardest to get Landon to Quit.......apparently the light switched on when he got wind that Thomas would join Big Ray in going pro....Landon said..."I will be there with a." An awesome show.

Sheehey may be the best player nobody knows about....Abel is strong....and we have yet to see Elston (injured) as well as Perea and Jurkin....even though Jurkin may be a project...

The game last night was beautiful...even if it was against a poor team. You need to dismantle teams you should.

Don't get me started on the Pacers........

I liked that Crean made Yogi play "point guard" and not shoot last night. The passing by Zeller and Sheehey was amazing. Hollowell is learning....he will be a scorer. Watford got a reality check not starting....and finally played great basketball.

    •   So, you think I made some good choices? 2006CBE asked who I wanted for Harvey -- Rizzo and Bryant were not available. I think Contreras is the best choice. I know Cubs fans like Schwarber but something about his weight bothers me. If Zobrist was under 28, I might have wanted him. If you still had Fowler, that is a guy I might want.   Given what you have, Contreras would be best for us. It won't haopen though. 
    • Right now, maybe half of the top 15 (or so) interior defensive lineman are 6'1 or less and about 300 lbs or less and arm lenght of around 32 inches (Donald, Atkins, Casey, Daniels, Jarrett/Kyle Williams). Only Donald was a day one 1 pick or drafted in the first two rounds. Casey went in the 3rd round. No one else was picked in the top 100. I don't think there is an other position were so many top players share similar trait and most of them were picked late in the draft.   Are teams that afraid of having a small team that they automatically give worse grade for smaller defensive lineman? If Aaron Donald, for example, had Geno Atkins besides him instead of Michael Brockers, would that line be as effective as one would expect just from the player talent level upgrade from Brockers to Atkins or even worse? I mean, Brockers is a good player but Atkins is on another level. And individually these players are great but would they work as well together on the same line? Not sure if it's as much about the size itself as these players can use it to their advantage in quickness and leverage but maybe two dlineman with short arms would create some issues?   Just wondering why so many of them have fallen late in the draft. I understand that some teams want bigger, physical players (like BB, Parcells etc) but what about those teams that had already gotten steals later in the draft with small interior lineman would jump at the chance to select a player who had great tape and showed similar traits as their best defensive player. Like Grady Jarrett in 2015. Both the Bengals and Titans drafted a dlinemen in the 4th, Jarrett went with first pick in the 5th round Bengals pick was actually two picks before Jarrett was taken.   Though the Bengals did take Billings last year and he might be next to Atkins but he was another 4th round pick. And Titans did draft Mike Martin to be their nose tackle a year after taking Casey but he didn't pan out. And I maybe haven't looked at closely enough at bust/success rate for smaller defensive lineman so these guys could be sort of outliers and teams just missed on these guys for other reasons.    
    • Also for retrospect on this list: Dan Marino--Mark Clayton & Jim Kelly--Andre Reed were snubbed.  Can you think of others that should be on here in place of someone else?
    • http://newarena.com/nfl/ranked-the-top-24-qb-wr-duos-of-all-time/7/?amxt=fbdesktop2   11. Peyton Manning/Reggie Wayne: Indianapolis Colts   In the post Marvin Harrison era, Wayne took the torch as being Manning’s go-to target. During his 14-year career with the Colts, Wayne had eight seasons with at least 1,000 yards receiving. He also managed to haul in 82 touchdowns during this time period. Manning’s resume has been chronicled ad nauseam. He is the all-time leader in passing yards (71,940), and is consistently mentioned as one of the best to ever throw a football in the history of the sport.   2. Peyton Manning/Marvin Harrison: Indianapolis Colts   The respective skill-sets of Manning and Harrison worked perfectly with one another. Manning’s unbelievable timing on throws was predicated greatly by Harrison’s ability to separate in coverage. One of the best technical receivers in league history, Harrison’s route-running capabilities led him to become an 8-time Pro Bowler and a 3-time First-team All-Pro. He also led the league in receiving yards twice with Manning under center. 114 of Manning’s 539 touchdowns throws went to Harrison. This statistic is simply mind-boggling — and further validates a top-three standing.   ( Jerry Rice also got mentioned 2 times.  #3 with Steve Young, and #1 with Joe Montana.)

    •   Sorry to keep harping on the Irish thing, but did you know the horseshoe has seven points on it?  (The Colts horseshoe, anyway.  Actual shoes for horses depend on the farrier).   Seven is considered a lucky number...  Lucky.  Luck.  I'm telling you, you picked the right team to root for.   7    
    •   Don't hold Boston against the Irish.  It's not our fault.    We love our green, which makes Indiana a tearmann.   I love it that you chose to root for an underdog instead of the Pats.  I don't think it's coincidence that you became a fan around the time Luck got drafted to the Colts.  That's providence.     Horseshoe?  Luck?  Four-leaf clover?  Come on.  Hoosier Hospitality has roots in Irish fun-lovery.  If you're lucky enough to be Irish, you're lucky enough!  May the luck of the Irish be with you!
