There was a play late in the game where the announcers mentioned a planned flop where #11 hit the deck and the assistants on the bench jumped up wanting an offensive foul. Kind of a bush league play for a team as good as IU.
I think the toughness aspect is a little bit overstated. It's not as if Michigan State isn't a physical team. IU was tougher than tOSU in the first matchup in my opinion. While I think that's the only way to beat IU, God knows you won't outrun them, but I don't think it's like its a surefire way to win.
When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.
