So, predictions?

It’s the final big game of the year at Assembly Hall tomorrow (Minnesota and Penn State…uggh) and it’s really about as big as it gets. At least that’s how it seems.

The Indiana Daily Student said it today: the Illini are now Indiana’s biggest rival.

This hatred stems from the Eric Gordon saga and aftermath. But the Gordon stuff wasn’t the extent of the drama…it was simply the fertile ground in which it was planted.

There’s also this:

— Indiana is unbeaten at home this year.

— Illinois has won three straight games and is finally getting healthy.

— The Hoosiers have lost four of the last five meetings between the two teams.

— The Illini need a big win to show off to the NCAA Tournament selection committee.

So, call it as you see it. What will  happen?

By the way, our coverage will begin early tomorrow, so check the Hoosier Scoop throughout the day.


  1. I think IU and its “12th man” will show no mercy after their and
    Weber’s whining and rudeness to them at Illinois.
    I hope we show more class than they did, and Weber
    has some hair left at the end!
    I don’t think it’ll be pretty.

  2. I have the feeling that the Hoosiers will pull a big W tomorrow. The way the Hoosiers are starting to mold into a strong team, I think they have no limits as to how far they can go.

    By the way, I bought a “Got Gordon?” t-shirt for the game. Yeah….that’s pretty much how I feel about it.

  3. Folks….get over to TIS @ the corner of Jordan and Third…..the blue t-shirts with red tie printed on em are in……they are awesome…..and going fast. I got mine. Mighty Chaz
