You can revisit it later.
BTW, I guess IU has been off the radar for so long, I am shocked to learn how much the fans like to repeat "have I told you how great we are?" Sort of like Kramer's annoying girlfriend, Toby: "great, really, really great!!!"
Except no one is really doing that. If you find people talking about being excited about IU basketball annoying maybe stay out of the IU basketball thread? What do you expect?
You're making it sound as if we expect a final four run or something when no one has come close to that.
Yes we are excited about wins in Dec/Jan over #s 1,2 and 13. Name me one fan base in the country that wouldn't be and especially with the last three seasons IU has had.
I dont know about this flash in the pan stuff either. If its flash in the pan to jump up in the top ten but finish the season between 15-20, then I guess they are a flash in the pan. But if you can't see that this team has real talent, and you think they're a borderline tournament team then I don't know what to say for your 40 years of watching basketball. You may not want it to happen but I have to tell you with this team and the classes that are coming in, IU basketball is back will be battling OSU for Big Ten supremacy in years to come.
