ESPN’s data driven SP+ model is not predicting a massive reversal of fortunes in year one of the Curt Cignetti era. That outlet’s Bill Connelly released his first rankings of the 2024 season, and Indiana comes in at No. 90 in the country, and last in the 18-team Big Ten.  The model says IU will have the No. 102 offense, and No. 66 defense. One thing worth noting right off the top, SP+ has no input to account for a coaching change.  So the working assumption is Curt Cignetti is going to step in and be Tom Allen. Here is…

As two of the Big Ten’s new coaches in 2017, Ohio State’s Chris Holtmann and Indiana’s Archie Miller were often compared. On Wednesday, Holtmann met the same fate as Miller, three years later.

Indiana was already down 21 in the second half when C.J. Gunn made his first shot on Saturday evening at Purdue. He didn’t make a dent in the massive Boilermaker lead.  It was apparent by then nobody was going to do that. The Hoosiers have lost six games by 14 or more points this season.  And one reason is because rarely has a guard done for Indiana what Gunn would go on to do in his 15 second half minutes in West Lafayette. The sophomore from Indianapolis scored a team and career high 13 points.  That tally included a 3-of-4…

In one stream of consciousness, IU coach Mike Woodson found himself perhaps in the same place as most of the Indiana fan base. Already looking ahead to next season, but still hopelessly wondering what’s possible over the next month. Stuck in a mire, somewhere between dueling clichés: there’s always next year, but hey, it ain’t over ’til it’s over. “We’re gonna have to add some pieces, but the season’s not over with.  We still have seven more games,” Woodson said Saturday evening in West Lafayette following his team’s 79-59 blowout loss to Purdue.
