Cupcake is a tough term with the Hoosiers due to the fact that last year they had two "cupcakes" on their schedule and lost them both.From there the Hoosiers have a game with Mississippi that could set the tone for the season. Then they get into the thick of their non-conference schedule with Maryland, Pittsburgh, and the powerhouse University of Kentucky.With new additions on the Hoosier roster such as Jeremiah Rivers, Christian Watford, Jordan Hulls, Maurice Cheek, and Derek Elston, this team is very possibly here to stay. IU fans need to have confidence in their squad this year.Right now, I'm predicting a 10-18 Hoosier record with a first round exit in the big 10 tournament. Still, it is animprovement and will continue to be for years.I look to Watford, Cheek, and Tom Pritchard as the main stars for the team with Devin Dumes and Verdell Jones being huge helps as well.Fans, remember that this team will not come out and win a national title Calbert Chaeney, A.J. That being said, this team will not go down without a fight and this WILL be a team that Hoosier fans can be proud of.God bless..
