IU Gear Deal of the Day: Up to 50% OFF Jerseys and T-Shirts

Mercy. The IU store is bringing it with pre-Thanksgiving sales right now.

Their recent deal for 50% of sweatshirts is over, but they have a new one in its place: 15-50% OFF select jerseys and t-shirts.

All you need to do is use the code TEESNJERSEYS at checkout, and the discount will be applied.

And one of the select jerseys is, in my estimation, the most select of all Indiana jerseys: the #40. Hat tip to Calbert and Cody.

And since it’s already sale, you get the additional discount on top of the sale price when you use the promo code.

And if you don’t want to spend quite that much, or you need a size down from XL or XXL, they also have the #40 practice jersey on sale as well — great for pickup games or working out:

One particular item on sale that I will recommend is the women’s Crimson full-zip jacket, which is basically the female version of the item featured in our previous deal of the day.

I love the script Indiana on the back (like on the shooting shirts the Hoosiers wear before games), and I can speak from first-hand experience that the material is soft and comfortable.

IU-Bellarmine Link Roundup: “That’s something we’ve got to work on.”


One of Tom Crean’s messages to his team after its victory over Bellarmine is that champions play to the final second.

The Hoosiers didn’t do that tonight, but did show flashes of how much potential they have with a sterling run in the middle of the first half.

Let’s hope we see more of those Hoosiers on Friday night when the regular season begins.

Ryan Corazza is back with The Minute After. And this statement pretty much sums up what we’ve seen from Indiana through two exhibition games:

Through 80 minutes, they’ve shown a little bit of everything. A finished product right now, these Hoosiers are not.

But that’s okay. And maybe even to be expected, despite this season’s expectations.

Troy, with the postgame quote of the night, via Andrew Vailliencourt’s postgame notebook for Inside the Hall:

“I mean, no, (we’re not happy),” junior Troy Williams said. “That’s huge. That’s not even the Big Ten. I mean, they’re a great team, don’t get me wrong, but that’s not even the Big Ten. That’s not what’s coming next Thursday. That’s something we’ve got to work on.”

Speaking of Troy, Brody Miller of the IDS is trying not to buy into the hype of Williams’ possible breakout junior season.

This article by Jonathan Lintner of the Courier-Journal says, “Though a crowd of 17,174 roared its loudest for Blackmon’s jam … ” Umm, I’m not sure Jonathan actually looked in the stands before typing that. :-) (In his defense, that may have been the announced attendance, but there is no way it was even half of that.)

On the recruiting front, Pete DiPrimio says Indiana is primed for a recruiting bonanza.

And hey! Look at this: our old pal Victor Oladipo visited the Hoosiers at a recent practice. His message? Togetherness is key. (Listen to Victor. He knows.)
