  1. No raising of National Championship Banners from March Madness tournament or Big Ten tournament rather just dig up an old rock song from the once glory program and celebrate a valiant losing effort.

  2. Back in the “glory days,” we were seemingly born to make deep runs in the tournament….Now we’re born to watch Crean pace the sideline for 40 minutes of a 2.27 mile brisk walk.

    Meanwhile, the Hurryin’ Hoosiers are now born to slow it down to the speed of an ugly Badger. = Fail.

    So, if I’m going late ’70s rock, I’m going with the song that never stopped pounding through the concrete dorm wall at 3:00 a.m. courtesy of the southern Indiana dudes from Evansville rooming next to me in Foster.

    Zeppelin was for the “cool kids” of Northwest Indiana…. and the frat rats. Bobby and Bruce…Bobby and Bruce…Bobby and Bruce.
