  5. Great win by IU! Defense is looking much improved – they are going to have to turn it up against Wall and UK. Fans…let’s go crazy this Saturday and beat Kentucky!!

  6. The program continues to improve! Great job to coach and team. Just think where this was 1 year ago! Great job!

    Now go tame those Wildcats!

    Hoo Hoo HOOSIERS!

  7. Casey-

    That’s part of the package that you get with Downing; the enthusiasm and passion comes with the weird late-night cheer-leading.

    Although at times annoying, it is at least good to see Downing excited about a win instead of Crean=bashing.

  8. Should have won by 20 against an overrated Pitt team who barely beat Duquesne. Program-changer? I dont’ think so.

  9. Alford – Go back to New Mexico where you belong and give it up. Your just mad we didn’t hire you as the coach of our beloved team. JEALOUS? haha.

  10. Husky-

    I would love to take credit for the giant font chants above. I think you’ll see Jobe sink a fadeaway jumper before I can do that type of “weird late-night cheer-leading” from my computer.

  11. Really? I could have sworn that it was you. I guess I was connecting your doctored-up Photoshop picture creativity with the talent displayed above.

    Who could it be, then?

  12. If I spend the next 10 years of my life building a booger mountain in my living room would that be considered a hidden talent? I have lots of excess time, but I’m not that goal-oriented…

    The blogger making the giant font words/drawings is determined. I am the opposite of determined. Procrastinators aren’t computer majors, Tom.

    If the blogger is not willing to come forth, then I can only conclude it’s Korman.
