Major BS

It's not good to see IU men's basketball team struggling *with itself* playing against far inferior competition (really, Bemdji...Bemidiji...Benjy State was not gonna win this game). But, it's something we've got to get used to this year, I guess. Taber, Williams, Story, Jones, and Dumes will probably be the top five in terms of minutes played, but Tom Pritchard could be tops (minutes, scoring, rebounding, blocked shots... heck, everything) if he can stay out of foul trouble and hit his layups. Daniel Moore may be turning out to be a pleasant surprise, which is what I'd hoped for when his walk-on status was announced, and maybe IU'll get some rebounding help for conference play when undersized but gutty forward Steven Gambles becomes eligible. Also, watch for Matt Roth to maybe benefit from conference play when the tempo slows down and he can find his spots a little better. Tijan Jobe... well, he's looking like he can play 10-15 minutes a game, no problem, but I think the best case for Jobe is be one of those guys who doesn't "do anything" but doesn't look out of place "not doing it."

I'll be rooting for IU all season long, but it'd be hard to see favoring the Hoosiers in very many games this season.
