I'm torn on this one. As my Alma Mater, I'm not sure I like seeing this. I typically think of seeing court rushes when a known lesser program beats a top program (no offense to those smaller programs). However, I will say that I think when IU rushed the court after beating UK a couple years back, I was okay with that. After all, UK might have gone undefeated that year had it not been for IU.
On the other hand, 12 straight wins against your program is nothing to sneeze out. And in what appears to be somewhat of a lost season for IU, a win like this might end up being their biggest win of the year (sad but true).
So I think I'm okay with it, but I don't want to see this again for a win in January against a conference rival.
Duke's rushed the court before...for beating VIRGINIA TECH...
Here's a blast from the past: A really good interview with A.J Guyton.
Well worth the read.

Court-rushing or not, I'll be in attendance Saturday.
What is the IU fan opinion of Dan Dakich? Annoying blowhard? Awesome ambassador? Still angry he didn't get the IU job?
Obviously, I can't stand the guy, and he clearly has a major stick up his butt still about UK...
Just curious what IU fans think about him...
Annoying at times? Yes.
While I appreciate everything he's done for IU, I was never upset at all that he didn't land the IU job. Hiring him as permanent HC, while placating the small, but very vocal, crowd that will dismiss any coach not named Robert Montgomery Knight, wasn't a good idea, IMO.
