    Hard to tell what we have this year after that Jekyll and Hyde opener. Awful start, but they turned it on and blew them out in the second half. First half was really ugly, with bad shooting resulting in a couple of long stretches without a field goal. Not coincidentally, shaky start from Bowman but then he played well in the 2nd. Chatman was off. They will definitely need him and others to step up and score against better teams, especially when Ky has an off night.

    Mediocre debut for Hamilton. He looked good on the boards and you could see the athletic ability, but not a good shooting night. He didn't start, and only played half of the game (with no foul trouble). Not what I was expecting from our highest rated recruit in 20 years, but obviously plenty of time for him to ramp it up.

    On the bright side, Tabbs looked REALLY good! We'll see what happens as the competition gets tougher, but he looks like he'll be a major contributor.

    Herron got a few significant minutes and didnt look out of place.

    Looks like Vin Baker may lose the few minutes he got last year. If he spent any time in the weight room this summer you can't tell.

    And Mitchell's shot looks as messed up as ever so he needs to just focus on grabbing boards and playing defense. Bowman/Tabbs are going to have to lead the scoring charge every night while Pop/Chatman alternate as the 3rd scorer. Hopefully at some point Hamilton joins them but he looks raw to me right now. The athleticism is certainly real though. This team is only going to run 6 or maybe 7 deep so any injuries will be devastating.

    I agree on Tabbs and Hamilton and they will probably go to 8 deep once Hamilton #2 is eligible.

    Eagles up two with 30 seconds to go vs. St. Francis of Brooklyn, in front of a nearly empty house at Conte

    I didnt watch this one, but the box score is alarming. 0 points, 0 assists from the bench. I can't remember the last time I've seen that. Maybe never. I knew they wouldnt be deep, but, wow.

    Jairus Hamilton had better get it going. Biggest recruit we’ve had in a long time and he can’t even score against St. Francis. I mean, c’mon.

    getting absolutely destroyed on the offensive glass by a mid-major like this is embarrassing

    Disgusting effort. I rail on Daz but canning Christian needs to be priority #1 for Jarmond. His teams never get better at basically anything.

    Pop said "Never mess with palindromes". Or something like that.

    Did it look like more than 100 fans were there?

    Definitely a smaller crowd than the St. Francis game. Maybe a few dozen BU fans thought the St. Francis Terriers were the BU Terriers and showed up for that game by mistake?

    How can a Division 1 school not have anyone show up for a game when it's not Finals week or Christmas break? Are the students really that disinterested?

    Sad. Annoying. Pathetic. Embarrassing.

    They could have used some juice from the crowd. But from what I could see there were more kids on the bench than in the stands.

    Not that there's ANY excuse for it to be even close, but down 2 with 30 sec to go and they play really good D only to see a backup guard hit a Steph Curry-esque bomb from the logo as the shot clock expired. Game over. UGBFKM.

    I wouldn’t be interested in watching this garbage team either.

    Wasted time camping out at 4:30AM for Gameday.

    Plus BC is weird. They don't cram, they just spend more and more time studying as it gets colder/closer to Finals. September they have all the time in the world.

    I also thing the times have changed with extracurriculars/internships/work. Both doing and looking for.

    They really only show up on Fridays (during the Fall)

    It's actually as simple as the team sucks and students don't show up to support shitty teams.

    Is it possible that IUPUI is actually decent? They lost to Xavier by 13 and trailed them at halftime by only 3, in Cincinnati before a crowd of 10,000+. Trying to stay positive.
