At Least We’re Not DePaul

Thursday, February 26th, 2009

Indiana's basketball season continues falling to depths that have only been previously measured in the Marianas Trench, with the latest indignity coming on Wednesday night with the Hoosiers' first home loss to Northwestern in 41 years. In fact, the Wildcats had never beaten IU at Assembly Hall, with the last ...

It’s Time to Get Some New Forms of Communication in Bloomington

Wednesday, February 25th, 2009

Raise your hand if you thought the Indiana University basketball program would get through this season without even the slightest of NCAA rules violations. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Well, the Indianapolis Star reported Tuesday that Indiana turned in its own secondary violation for an extra phone call during one week to incoming recruit Bawa Muniru in late ...

Perhaps Indiana Can Still Make this Game Watchable

Saturday, February 21st, 2009

Today could be a nightmare. Usually there are few things better for the writers of this blog than a little Indiana-Purdue rivalry, especially this time of year. That's because basketball season is the time where Hoosiers get revenge for a normally embarrassing football loss. Not so this year. Since Kelvin Sampson pillaged and burned the Indiana program ...

The Hoosiers Might Go Down, But They Will Do So Swinging

Tuesday, February 10th, 2009

The Balls On This Guy…

Wednesday, January 28th, 2009

In case you weren't aware, I hate Kelvin Sampson so much that picturing him suffering like Sisyphus in Milwaukee doesn't even bring a smile to my face. His name only exits my mouth on rare occasions, usually preceded by the type of unhinged cursing reserved only for the San Diego ...

Bob Knight’s Mexican Donkey Show Makes Us PUke

Thursday, January 22nd, 2009

I wasn't the biggest Bob Knight fan growing up. I didn't grow up anywhere near Indiana. I was one of those IU freshmen who thought "The General" was Patton or MacArthur. But as far as Bob Knight goes as a studio and in-game analyst, I love it. I can't get enough ...

I Dream About Kissing Cousins

Thursday, January 22nd, 2009

Please excuse me for leading with a quote: "UAB is out of the picture, but I'm still down with Mike Davis. It's a bad situation down there, and nothing is going to change. Even if Coach Davis is there, I'm not going there." - DeMarcus Cousins. Why do we care so much ...
