Nice write up Ramzy. This was well-written and I especially liked the Gerry DiNardo line haha.
I think Kevin Wilson will be good for the program, but there are so many strong schools that it's hard to imagine a consistent winner at IU-- besides, if that happened, that coach would be moving on to bigger and better things. Beating Purdue to carry out Coach Hep's dream of "Playing 13" was exciting and still gives me goosebumps every time that's on the BTN. It may not be like getting into a national championship game or winning a Big Ten title, but it was still awesome and puts things in perspective.
Most of my friends went to OSU and I even managed to get two into the last tOSU football game in Bloomington for the price of student tickets. So before any more of you go all "Ladybuck" on the Hoosiers, you guys have bigger fish to fry than picking on Indiana. It's an exciting time to be a basketball, especially for those of us that stuck with them through the hard times, and I look forward to some good games with OSU in the future.
Would be incredible to build some momentum this football season and make it to Indy, but I think Dallas Lauderdale has a better chance of landing on the cover of GQ than that. I don't expect OSU fans to "root" for IU, but you better believe that if they had a shot going into the Oaken Bucket game, it would be hard for many to not at least pull for them -- kinda like those that rooted for Butler even though deep down they were pissed their bigger, better programs were already out of the tournament.
Ok rant over... O-H, I-U
