Gotta agree with Dickie V

5 teams that flopped this year will Dance in '06
Let's look ahead to next season as I identify five teams that missed the NCAA Tournament this year – but will return in 2006.

I'll start with Indiana. Coach Mike Davis will be back, but he's under plenty of pressure because the Hoosiers have missed the Big Dance for two straight years. D.J. White, Robert Vaden and company will be joined by two transfers from Auburn, Marco Killingsworth and Lewis Monroe. Despite the loss of Bracey Wright, who will enter the NBA draft, the Hoosiers should be tough in the Big Ten.

A 29-29 record the past two seasons puts pressure on Indiana. It would help if the nonconference schedule was a little easier.
Ok - gotta agree with all but the last sentence of that excerpt. Bring it on.

I have to agree with you there. If they're expected to beat top schools in the tourney, why can't they handle them up front?

One thing I respect about IU is that they don't play a lot of lame schools pre-conference just to pad their stats.

Look - more hope for your Hoosiers!
