    Curious on what the thread thinks of IU's tourney chances. Is IU/Ohio St a de facto play in game or would they also need to beat MSU to make it?

    Anyone going to the tournament?

    I've got a client meeting in Chicago Wednesday. I'm going to be on PTO Thursday. No telling what I might do, but if one of your fine gentlemen are going and want to hang out, it's possible I'll be there.

    I'm not sure how to take your response.

    The question was whether IU needed to beat MSU to make it.

    You replied "I think you need to win two."

    As you already know, IU has already won two against the #Michigan State Spartans.

    Or are you saying IU has to win THREE against MSU to make the tournament?

    I’ll be honest. You’re a little too methodical at sucking dick to make a third win really interesting.

    Can you switch it up Friday to make it interesting?

    In general, I want to lose Friday and rest. Play Thursday to get Ward back in the mix a little. But a third loss to IU would be super lame.

    Two bookend wins against the most overrated top 10 team in the country.

    Edited to add: if the committee sees this Michigan State is definitely a top ten team and is very good and any team that beat them should be given the benefit of the doubt iyam.

    This seems like an unpopular opinion but when you're having a season like we are or Indiana, who the fuck cares about the tourney. Let Gardner-Webb care about making the tourney.

    We fucking suck, I couldn't care less about losing in first round of the tourney vs the NIT.

    I think Indiana has a dangerous team that could make a deep run.

    I care very much about making the tournament and do not think Gardner Webb is a better team.

    The tourney is always a lot more fun when you have a (non gambling) interest. Of course I'd rather see IU in than not but they'll have 0 argument if/when they get left out, and rightfully so.

    It will only last until we lose to the #Ohio State Buckeyes on Thursday.

    But we will do what we can.

    I think making the tourney is good to be able to recruit and say you made the tourney, as opposed to having to explain why you didn't.

    We have 3 top 50 guys plus a good transfer, we also have 1 senior next year so can't say that's a big concern right now.

    It sucks and we suck and are in early days of our coach, I don't see it making a huge difference in recruiting when we have maybe a 2 person class next year and one of them will likely be Sconnie Penn's kid.

    Next year is enormous for us, at least sweet 16 or bust

    We were easily best team in the country in 2010 and fucking blew it in sweet 16.

    Yeah, woe is us Ohio State fans. Should feel so bad for us.

    Yeah some good prices on SeatGeek. $10 will get me in the door. I doubt Minnesota-PSU is gonna sell out so it seems like it should be pretty easy to walk down to the 1st level no?

    Just a heads up: the last couple times we went to the BTT at the United Center they had additional gates inside and wouldn't even let you on the 100 level concourse without tickets. They'd make you take the stairs or escalator upstairs to get food, use the bathrooms etc.

    They don't clear the arena between games in the same session and apparently had too many problems with fans coming in for the 2nd games and not being able to get their seats.

    Yeah, I’ve been to it at the United Center and regardless of how full it was, they didn’t even let you get close to the lower level if you didn’t have a ticket. It was a great time, but the seat you buy will 99 percent of the time be the seat you sit in.
