    Big Ten COY?

    Heck, why not National COY?

    No love for Bill Carmody at Northwestern?

    If they make the tournament I'd not have a problem with that, but I think Crean is going to win, probably national as well.

    Great win yesterday against a hot Purdue team. However, IU did not play a great 2nd half. Granted, they played beyond what one could have expected during the 1st half.

    I know the Hoosiers love to play the uptempo game, but when you have a lead late and the score is close, you need to slow it down and burn some of the clock. I don't see IU doing that enough.

    Still, it's so great to see a sweep of the Boilermarkers.

    I might disagree with that part , but it was nice to have both teams good and the game somewhat relevant. Outside of that one year when Hummel was a freshman and IU had Gordon, it really hasn't been for a long time. I look forward to this rivalry in the next couple of years.

    IU looked good and really is the better team this year. I might even have to root for them in the tourney. (I think I am going to be sick now)

    Why? He hasn't done anything special this year that they haven't done in the past several years. Outside of the Michigan State game, I don't see anything special. Crean deserves the credit more, IMO.

    I don't know. I think Izzo and Beline have taken their clubs to a place where very few thought they could be. Carmody is close to doing something Northwestern has never done before.

    I think Crean gets it though.

    I like it when both teams are in the top twenty, battling it out.

    The mid to late 80's and early 90's games were great. I think at that time basketball wise IU/Purdue had to be one of the best rivalries.
    I was in the ORG once, best 6 months of my life.

    I still remember the game in Bloomington in 88 when Knight benched a bunch of guys, because they were struggling a bit, Calloway and Smart mostly, and the bench guys got ahead of Purdue with Troy Lewis and Stephens and those guys something like 33-12 and barely held off a mega rally at the end. Good times.

    Izzo got the nod, but I'm not sure I agree that few thought he'd have a top 3team.

    Similarly, while I've loved every minute of this teams bounce back to relevancy, in terms of exceeding expectations, IU did a little bit better than forecast. THey were picked in the pre-season to finish 9th and finished fifth. tMSU was picked to finish 4th and finished tied for 1st. Michigan was picked to finish 3rd, and likewise finished in the tie for first.

    I get the line of thinking that it's rare for a coach who finished fifth to get coach of the year, but in my mind, Beilein had fewer "raw materials" to work with than Izzo.

    The worst news is confirmed, Verdell Jones III tore his ACL yesterday. Brutal blow for a kid that has endured his share of slings and arrows and was about to play in his first tournament. Hope the team takes the tough news and reacts positively.

    Gottlieb picking NMSU to beat IU is about as predictable as the sun coming up tomorrow.

    I almost wish IU would have gotten hosed in their seeding, just so I could complain about it. It's been so long.

    On to the Sweet 16.

    2002--the last Sweet 16 appearance--seems like a lifetime ago.
