Falling behind

Busy with holidays, a wedding, and work. Probably won't catch up until next week sometime.

Indiana hoopsters have passed the in-state road tests against Butler and Ball State, and just got by Michigan at home. The good news is that Indiana State looks more like a fluke. The bad news is that Michigan on the road in the last game of the season now looks pretty iffy. But as long as we can count on Amaker's ability to have his team implode down the stretch, Indiana still has a decent shot of picking that one up.

Next up is Ohio State at home on Saturday, who are very similar to Indiana thus far. I'm thinking being at home and Indiana's defense should make the difference in another close victory. Being the only time these two clubs meet, it becomes incumbent on IU to pick up this W.

looking down the schedule:

Road games at Michigan State and at Illinois will probably be losses.

at Iowa and at Wisconsin are possible wins, but seems unlikely.

at Minnesota, at Purdue, and at Penn State have got to be wins.

There isn't a home game this team should lose, but take any day off in the big ten, and you'll get smacked. The Connecticut game on Feb. 4th should be very interesting, 'though.
