    Crean selling his mediocre results for all they're worth... Net cutting after losses, phone books, shrines... How long will IU fans keep buying this crap?

    Btw: he should call the general if he needs advice on how to stop it. Bobby would've grabbed the PA mic and stopped it with a quickness.
    Couldn't have put it better myself. I'm kinda surprised the Worldwide Leader hasn't asked for Mr. Knights opinion, given it was a topic on ESPN last night.

    It should speak volumes when Arkansas doesn't storm the court after upsetting Kentucky yet Indiana does after beating Wisconsin.

    Fans have a right to storm the court and other fans have a right to comment on how tacky it is. No biggie either way.

    Kentucky wasn't undefeated and ranked #3 in the country.

    As to the bigger picture, I find it tough to criticize college kids for having a little harmless fun, regardless of where they go to school or how good/bad/"blue blooded" their basketball program is.

    Well, they've beaten UK three times in a row in Fayetteville, so perhaps the Arkansas fans are used to it by now.

    Yawn.

    I'll take tired topics for 100, Alex!

    Respectfully, the majority of IU backers have done what, apparently, the anti-IU folks have been, so far, unwilling to do:

    We've moved on.

    Agreed.

    So long as they don't act like Jackwagons -- like several did following UK's last visit to Assembly Hall -- what's the problem?

    Re: Indiana Basketball

    When its your team, its harmless fun. When its somebody else's team, its "was that a storm the floor worthy win? Geesh, never won a big game before?" It just works that way.

    On another note, I think Tom Crean has some emotional imbalance that will get him in trouble eventually.

    I'm a little surprised they didn't considering they had just won the super bowl.

    All blue blooded comments aside, I normally wouldn't agree with Coach K, but he made some comments some time ago about why storming the court shouldn't be allowed.

    Two reasons in particular I agree with :

    1. Injuries to players. Two years ago, Darius Miller nearly got trampled at Indiana. That was more of a freak situation given it was a game winning shot and the chaos that followed.

    2. Incidents with fans. UK has had three incidents with this just in the Calipari era, including one last night with Aaron Harrison and a fan. How long before a player gets attacked or a player turns on a fan and it turns into an all out brawl?

    I don't have a problem with fans storming the court, but I can understand the concerns. I do think though Indiana should be the fanbase who WANTS fans to storm the court when they get beaten, not the other way around.

    Re: Indiana Basketball

    To be fair to the students at Indiana, the Knight era ended when a senior would have still been in grade school. That's a lifetime ago for them. Indiana's history means nothing to them. It's like when I was 9 watching the 87 team and people were like, you should have seen the 76 team, and I'm like, dude, I wasn't alive then!

    Rumor has it Vandy was gonna rush the court once... unfortunately none of the Vandy nerds had the requisite upper body strength to lift themselves up onto the elevated floor.

    In all seriousness, as the bar for what "deserves" a court storming drops lower and lower and they become more and more common, there will eventually be an all out brawl, serious injury or death and then they will stop.

    The NCAA should institute a $100,000 fine and forfeiture of the game and this foolishness would be cut out overnight. Counting on the NCAA to be proactive about anything--besides preemptively excusing systemic academic fraud at UNC--, however, is an exercise in futility.

    Re: Indiana Basketball

    If you're really worried about safety, why only complain when Indiana does it?
