    Or a Malice in the Palace type of situation. I think that will happen before a player gets injured for the season.

    I just would make sure it would be possible to get the opposing team off the court before utter bedlam set in. That's just me though.

    Re: Indiana Basketball

    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.

    Here's a blast from the past: A really good interview with A.J Guyton.

    Well worth the read.

    They weren't actually rushing the court because of basketball, a UK fan snuck in and grabbed the PA mic and said there was a TI-83 Scientific Calculator giveaway at midcourt immediately following the game.

    If UK fans ever storm Rupp after a win I would be embarrassed. Same goes for Duke, UNC, Kansas or any other blue blood of college basketball. I thought Indiana was in that category too, guess I was wrong.
    IU fan here...was NOT a fan of the storming. Wisky was #3 for crying out loud!!! DISAPPOINTED

    Trust me, everyone else in the SEC is fully aware that UK is the GOAT, that's why seemingly every away game is either a t shirt game, an honor a former past great day, etc. etc. etc. Check average SEC attendance for the games directly before and after UK comes to town. It's comical.
    I think UCLA might argue that!!!

    Court-rushing or not, I'll be in attendance Saturday.

    Re: Indiana Basketball

    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...

    Awesome ambassador for the most part.

    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.

    So I guess it's Louisville then. Or perhaps Arizona.

    I generally like Dakich. He is very smart when it comes to basketball. I have never sensed he was angry about the IU job, pretty sure I heard before that he didn't even want the job full-time. Sometime he can be annoying, but what I like is he isn't an IU homer. He is pretty much straight up with his calls of the game. He really loves the game of basketball and anyone who loves the game like that I can't really hate on!
