Indiana was still relevant under Mike Davis.
For a frame of reference, Ohio State bottomed out twice recently, once when Ayers got the program in trouble, and then when O'Brien did the same. I don't recall all the drama with future success that I see out of the Indiana corner when the Bucks revived the program twice in the same time frame. Maybe a bit with Tressel in football (since OSU football and IU bball are similar in fanatacism), but then they won a NC. Honor them with what's appropriate for the accomplishments, but please quit with the "savior of the program" mentality. It's quite stomach turning.
Werent there some issues with Gary Williams as well?
...and this one belongs to the Reds.
