  1. Another interesting write in the Indy Star, “Unlikely path to the NBA for Zeisloft”. And, story on Big Ten, NCAA $$$$ impact on Purdue sport’s budget. Something like $38,000,000.00. More ‘o’s the better ? Does not include profit sharing which should be another $1,000,000.oo……The new TV agreement should be around $2,640,000,000.oo which may translate to an increase of $10,000,000.oo for each of the Big Ten schools. Guess we’re talking real-money now.

  2. “The pro-Bob Knight loyalists will continue to shrink as Tom Crean’s Indiana thrives
    Knight loyalists need to get over themselves. Crean has coached the Indiana Hoosiers to a Big Ten title and multiple Sweet 16 appearances. This Indiana team has the size, depth and speed to again be in the second weekend of the NCAA tournament. If the point guard play materializes, then Hoosiers fans better deal with Crean creating a lasting legacy.”

    Ouch, those comments from Any Katz have got to sting a few of the Crean-haters. But it is hard to argue with his logic.

  3. Purdue challenging for the title? I’ll believe it when I see it. I’m guessing another also ran year.
