With #iubb coming off a rare two-win week, Galen and Scott break down the Ohio State and Iowa games, talking about the shifts in offense and defense that led to the victories, and the positive developments in terms of team effort and execution that we saw in both of those games. The comment section was BUSY in this podcast, so we spent a lot of time answering questions and reacting to what was being sent to us on YouTube and Twitter. Included in that were thoughts relating to IU’s difficulty in bringing consistent effort, their tendency to do things in games against big teams, and the challenges facing this team over the last 3+ games of the season.
Galen also lays out his scenarios for IU making the NCAA tournament, and explains why the team is still behind the 8-ball to some degree. Finally, we preview the Nebraska and Michigan games, and discuss the relative merits of the NIT vs the NCAA for this particular squad.
