Re: Indiana Basketball 2011-2012 Part II
There is still an undercurrent in Bloomington, although it's dwindling. Mostly, it's older fans who want IU to be what the program was when Knight was here, which they believe was a boy scout convention of moral rectitude, motion offense and stellar academics. Frankly, I believe, as Harvey Penick and other golfers do, that the real character of a man comes out on the course, and if you have any doubts that the General is a horse's rear end, then you may want to google videos of his golf show.
I remember that Crean's Marquette team beat UC twice in 00-01 and there were grumblings about Huggins getting out coached. Isn't this just what fans do when unranked teams take down a better team? And for what it's worth, most of the Hoosier fans I know have said the same thing for many years, that Big Ten play offers no guarantees for ranked teams, which is the same thing I heard from ACC fans when I lived in Raleigh. This uncertainty is what I love about college basketball; ranked or unrankded, the players are still kids and on any given night their youth may allow them to cast aside ineptitude, or cause them to play like they've just met each other for the first time.
