They look the part

 The Hoosiers prepare to play the Gophers.

All week, the folks on talk radio and the message boards and around the bar at your local tavern have been wondering about this Indiana basketball team. Not about what style of defense it should play, or who should play alongside D.J. White in the paint.

No, the question has been: is this team prepared to play the way it must play during this time of the year? Can it overcome the tumult of the past month?

I think we’ll be able to tell the answer to that in the first few moments of this game. The Hoosiers are playing in front of pretty much a home crowd.
