I believe it is a school policy thing. He’d be suspended from being on campus until 2020. Nothing really to do with athletics. Currently he’s suspended by the athletic department as well.


#1824

Sounds serious as well.


#1825

Waiting for St. Izzo to weigh in on all these injuries and the corresponding team’s practice habits.


#1826

…and then returning to his own practice to run the War Drill for the 437th time.


#1827

There are two B10 games tonight. What’s up with games on Friday? Is this just for this screwed up season or is it the new normal? I though the B10 was too classy to play games on Friday.


#1828

Wisconsin has three Friday B1G games and none on a Saturday. Evidently Bucky doesn’t roll on Shabbas.


#1829

Friday and Monday games are the new normal with the shorter schedule and the FOX deal.


#1830

He’s talking about slowing things down because he needs to limit possessions because they struggle so much on defense. So there’s that, too. They’re a mess.


#1831

1-1 last night. 8-3 on the year. Just one today: Minnesota -7.


#1832

:-\


#1833

oof. That probably eliminates them from the NCAAs definitively


#1834

Maryland and Minny, both probably top 5 B1G teams, losing some of their best players, is going to be bad for the conference’s numbers and perception.


#1835

Minnesota is a mess right now without Jordan Murphy (2 fls) and Coffey/Lynch. IU playing well on the road.


#1836

This would be a huge win for IU. A couple of days ago, this would have looked like a sure road loss.


#1837

Woof, awful 10 second violation by Indiana to lose the final possession in the half.


#1838

Comical understanding of time and situation there by IU down the stretch.


#1839

LOL at that Minny possession down 3 with 20 seconds left. Just terrible execution.


#1840

Dakich was right. Pitino needed to cal a TO on the possession. Bad coaching.


#1841

100% agree. And at the same time, terrible shot even without the timeout. Why was the big shooting a foot on the line three with 10 seconds left? Terrible awareness and poise.


#1842

Coffey news has left Minnesota in a real mess… Not to mention the Lynch situation. Ugly stuff and their season is in a tough spot now.

8-4 overall. OSU +8 at home vs. MSU. Maryland -8 at home vs Iowa.
