But I wanted to beat North Carolina first. Tar Heels visiting Assembly Hall. (Indiana Basketball pregame)

Indiana’s handled their lesser opponents with extreme prejudice, and have fully lived up to (and in my unprofessional and biased opinion, surpassed) the expectations the Hoosiers’ fans have had for the team. They’ve answered some big questions like, would they be able to get tough road wins, like they did in Xavier. Mike Woodson has the Indiana Hoosiers playing total team ball and unfortunately for … Continue reading But I wanted to beat North Carolina first. Tar Heels visiting Assembly Hall.

Business as usual, as the Hoosiers beat the JSU Tigers 90-51. (Indiana basketball short postgame thoughts)

Final out of Bloomington: Indiana Hoosiers 90 – Jackson State 51 The Indiana Hoosiers were able to rightfully handle the Jackson State Tigers. Leaving little doubt, the Hoosier depth was once again able to shine when the 0-4 tigers rolled into town. The Indiana Hoosiers beat the “0 for” Tigers, and left little doubt in this game. While Indiana teams of prior seasons may have … Continue reading Business as usual, as the Hoosiers beat the JSU Tigers 90-51. (Indiana basketball short postgame thoughts)

The Bucket Game: Give Me Something To Brag About! (Indiana-Purdue pregame thoughts)

The Old Oaken Bucket was first awarded in 1925. After Chicago based alumni of both Indiana and Purdue decided to establish a rivalry trophy in honor of sportsmanship or whatever. Both Alumni chapters met and drafted the following resolution to make said trophy: “an old oaken bucket as the most typical Hoosier form of trophy, that the bucket should be taken from some well in … Continue reading The Bucket Game: Give Me Something To Brag About!

Xavier Musketeers weapon spotlight: Colby Jones and Jack Nunge (and how Indiana shuts them down)

Prior to these games with the more known commodity level programs I want to highlight an opposing player or two that stands out on the stat sheet and the court. Just highlighting them and allowing any Hoosier fans curious enough, a little insight into what one might expect come the next game. With our marquee matchup in Cincinnati Friday, Xavier will have plenty of weapons, … Continue reading Xavier Musketeers weapon spotlight: Colby Jones and Jack Nunge (and how Indiana shuts them down)

Notre Dame looking to carry momentum into a quick one against Navy (short pregame thoughts)

Disclaimer: the following words are those written by a Notre Dame Irish fanboy, and subject to extreme bias and ignorant optimism. Now while one could read “a quick one” as the competitive nature of this game ending quickly into it, I literally mean a quick game. With a Drew Pyne led Notre Dame facing off against Navy this will be a running clock for 60 … Continue reading Notre Dame looking to carry momentum into a quick one against Navy (short pregame thoughts)

I hate the Pats. Here’s hoping another week with Sam gets the Colts going. (Colts-Patriots short pregame thoughts)

Heading into this game, I honestly feel none of the anxiety that I usually feel as a fan during Patriot week. Sam Ehlinger has showed the Colts fans already that he will be looking to take some shots down field. A facet of the game that Matt Ryan was unable to do. In my opinion, mostly due to his limitations to keep plays alive and … Continue reading I hate the Pats. Here’s hoping another week with Sam gets the Colts going.

It may be time to start gearing up for next season Hoosiers. (IU-Penn State short pregame thoughts)

How we doing Hoosier fans? That was a long bye week where we got to sit and marinate in that Rutgers loss. We got a whole 2 weeks to sit and reflect on the current state of the Indiana Hoosiers football program. I have to say, I am beginning to think we may not be faring so well (understatement I know). I am usually optimistic … Continue reading It may be time to start gearing up for next season Hoosiers. (IU-Penn State short pregame thoughts)

Which Fighting Irish team will show up in Syracuse? (Notre Dame at Syracuse pregame thoughts)

Which Notre Dame Fighting Irish squad will we see roll into New York tomorrow? The Notre Dame Fighting Irish have been a monument to inconsistency this season. While looking great in some games and totally lost in others, what can fans expect from the Notre Dame Fighting Irish come Saturday? Unfortunately, in my unprofessional opinion, who could even tell you?! This Notre Dame team is … Continue reading Which Fighting Irish team will show up in Syracuse?

Irsay’s breathing down Frank’s neck in this one. (Colts v. Titans Week 7 short pregame thoughts)

Well I’m sure Colts fans are feeling a little better heading into our grudge match with the Titans. Matt Ryan was firing and firing and firing last weekend, and I really hope we see the success continue. Our aging veteran still has the capability to deliver I cant imagine Kwity will be in the game tomorrow. With Shaquille Leonard questionable this week we will need … Continue reading Irsay’s breathing down Frank’s neck in this one. (Colts v. Titans Week 7 short pregame thoughts)

Lines shifting towards Notre Dame. Here’s hoping we have an offense tomorrow (ND-UNC short pregame thoughts)

Well, apparently a lot of Notre Dame fans are feeling pretty optimistic in tomorrow’s matchup with North Carolina. Our matchup with the Tar Heels tomorrow opened in Vegas with UNC the 6.5 point favorite (meaning they thought they’d win by a touchdown). I try to make it clear for those reading not understanding Vegas talk. Now a day prior to kickoff Notre Dame finds themselves … Continue reading Lines shifting towards Notre Dame.
