Engineering and Applied Sciences programs are tremendous engines for economic and industrial growth...unlike, say, Comparative Literature.

    Of course, basketball is another matter entirely- it's hard to argue with the success of UNC.
    There was a picture I found on the web of a pillow saying, "It's hard to be humble when you're from NC State." I wanted to put this in the post, but couldn't get it to come in correctly.

    And I disagree, I know exactly what goes on at Indiana A&T.

    Most important game of Creans IU coaching career to date.

    This team is much improved; last year they would have folded at the 8:00 mark, but instead they made a very impressive run to come back and close things out.

    Ok for those who doubted Crean's coaching ability: Join us. You no longer have reason to worry.

    Great win. Cody Zeller is going to be better this year than I thought. I didn't expect a big game out of him tonight.

    I was so happy that Olidipo punched that one hard on the break away at the end of the game rather than pull it out and run clock. I ran to the garage and did the same dunk on my son's mini goal right after that and then I told the vacuum that it can't guard me.

    They deserve some. IU has a good team.

    You mean UK?

    I expect a good game from IU. This will be the first true road for Kentucky and we will see how they handle that. BTW it's good to see IU climbing back on the map. College basketball can always use a program with good tradition like IU.

    We're not there yet. We'll be there when it's no longer a moral victory to hang with UK. Especially when we're playing at home. Sadly, I think it will be a moral victory or bust on Saturday.

    I think IU might beat Kentucky Saturday.

    Re: Hoosier Hoops

    It has sure been fun having a game that everyone is getting this amped up for. Reading the tweets from people warning not to sell tix to people from a Ky zip code, to the one's from Coach Cal instructing his fans how to get past such "tight" security.

    From a pure matchup standpoint, there aren't a lot of places I feel comfortable saying the Hoosiers are at an advantage.
    One thing I think we'll have to see is if Cody Zeller truly has a good 10-15 foot range. If he can draw Davis away from the basket, it will open things up for guys like Watford.

    I was in the Assembly Hall the only time IU has defeated a Number 1 team and it was an experience I'll never forget.

    If IU can hit a crazy percentage from the threes and Zeller stays out of foul trouble they have a real shot. But if they don't do both of those things they probably won't win.
