  1. Hi – I’m headed to Vegas this afternoon and normally, I always bet on IU. The problem is IU is a 14 pt favorite on the road. What should I do? I don’t think they’ll cover but I don’t want to feel like a traitor and bet against them.

  2. Beyond the uniforms worn, what’s really scary is that I actually remember watching that Paul Revere and the Raiders clip on Hullabaloo or Shindig or some such TV-for-teens show. I really am that old. But, hey, as they say, if you can remember the 60s, you weren’t really there.
    I’ll have to ponder that.

  3. OK, let’s get psyched for UMass, Purdue will get their butts rightly handed to them.

    We’re gonna make a statement here. Maybe a top 25 after Saturday. It’s here. It’s all gonna happen. Underclassmen are gonna dominate.

    One more, please. Hold the ice.

    Did I say that out loud?

  4. Sorry, Chet..Any chance of rekindling our Streisand and Redford days is now over. Last night marks the beginning of Harvard’s new fantasy soul mate.

  5. Sometimes it makes me wonder what kind of fan I am when deciding what is more fulfilling, PUke losing or IU winning. Well that decision did not take long, GO IU, Go ND.
