There are surprising losses, and then there’s Indiana getting rolled by Indiana State to open its season.
The Hoosiers fell 90-69 on Friday in Archie Miller’s debut as head coach in Bloomington and it’s safe to say no one was ready for it. The Sycamores set a record for three-pointers scored against Indiana with 17 triples on 26 attempts and shot 59.2 percent from the field overall.
Here’s the best reactions from a surreal night at Indiana.
Half: Indiana State 54, IU 33
Surprised? If I woke up tomorrow with my head sewn to the carpet, I wouldn't be more surprised than I am now.

Lots of fans heading to the exits at under 8. At least the drive through the construction zone on 37 tonight shouldn't be too congested.

Indiana State is 17-of-22 from behind the 3-point line. Some of it has been luck. A lot of it has been very bad defense. All of it has been mind-blowing and ugly. #iubb

Hey IU beat Kansas to start last year and sucked the rest of the year so maybe getting curb stomped by Terre Haute is just what the doctor ordered for little Archie.

Indiana State has already set the opponent record for three-point field goals in Assembly Hall — 17 of 22 — with 8 minutes to play. Sycamores have a Secretartiat like 28 point lead.

Archie Miller is the first #iubb coach to lose a season-opening debut since Everett Dean in 1924.
Who did Everett lose to?

Tough loss. Still, I like that IU played a state school. Hoosiers will get better. https://t.co/U1nG8XN8f7

In the past year-ish, Indiana has lost to Fort Wayne, Butler, Indiana State and Purdue twice. https://t.co/JDowFd6FUj

Indiana State beats Indiana, 90-69. Indiana State coach Greg Lansing makes $250K a year. Indiana coach Archie Miller makes $279K A MONTH.
