Yeah a team with 5 titles shouldn't even count sweet 16 finishes as a success.

Article failed to mention that Tom Crean was given a Sweet 16 Commemorative Bowl.  School officials had hoped Crean would use the Bowl to give himself a new hairstyle, instead of what he currently goes with.  What would you want your $1,500,000 coach sporting?

Indiana has pretty rich basketball history, to hand out rings for a sweet 16 is quite pathetic despite how things have played out recently.  This would be like Notre Dame handing out champs sports bowl rings.

Considering ND hasn't won a January bowl game since 1994, and only 2 bowl games since then (2 bowl games in the last 18 freaking years!), I think it would be appropriate for ND to hand out those rings.  (I sure as hell hope I didn't jinx myself).

Are they really that desperate for recognition?

This is what happens when your program hasn't been relevant since 2002.
