I need to see who is not going to be healthy, but IU has the 'talent' to beat any team in the nation.  The tough thing is that there may be too few of minutes for some of the freshmen.

 

Colin Hartman provides the senior leadership.  Thomas Bryant staying and Anunoby have a year under his belt, this has the chance to be a great year for the Hoosiers.

Yes everyones fairly healthy  , Jonson may not be 100 percent at beginning of practice from ankle surgery. Thomas Bryant is a beast has really added muscle mass . Wont be moved around underneath by anyone in CB in my opinion. Hartman is healthy after surgery as is Morgan who has added some muscle as well. They are projecting OG as a starter. Will have some very good bench strength. 2 new players McSwain and Newkirk have college experience. McSwain being a high flying athlete with out taking a toke lol. Also hear Colin is healthy.

I was kind of surprised Anunoby didn't go to the draft. I think someone would have taken him. Very good athleticism and a very good motor.

Anunoby has a lot of potential but him entering last year's draft would have been an absolute travesty.

Maybe, but this coming draft will be much more stacked than last years. IU should be glad hes back, heck of a player.

Anunoby is #1 draft prospect from big 10 Bryant #2 according to what I read a couple days ago. Watched IUs practice on BTN Saturday big things are expected from Morgan as well. Was impressed with the big boy from Col. especially on D blocked Bryants shot . Love the athletic ability from this team.

9 games I think on RP like Boeheim and Larry Brown.

Honestly, every school should deny punishments until the NCAA does something to UNC. I just don't get how a school can do 20+ years of academic fraud and still not be touched by the NCAA. Hell, Kelvin Sampson at IU did dumb things regarding phone calls and texts I think it was and he was tossed to the wolves. Yet Williams is still free. I don't get it. Hopefully theres no UNC fans around here haha but its the truth.

Indiana just won in OT! Awesome win.

IU definitely looks like they'll be good this year. A lot of weapons on offense.

The only way MSU wins this is if they are in the 50-60 pt. range.  Duke is strong.

Yeah, I think Duke overall has the best team and most talent this year. Makes me sick saying it, but wouldn't be surprised if coach K gets his 6th ring this year. Grayson Allen (can't stand him) coming back was big for them, on top of who they brought in.

Agree....I am looking forward to his defensive improvement.  He could really become a big time shot blocker IMO.

Villanova could actually repeat.  The Purdue game was as good as it gets.  I watched more of it than the Pacers.

Indiana's win over Kansas shows me Indiana has what it takes.

I want to see them play with the same sense of urgency every game.  Tomorrow night will be a case of that.  Defense needs improved as well.  Good guards get easy lay ups...See Frank Mason.
