Bruce Weber: ‘Indiana Will Suck’

Bruce Weber gave an oh-so-hilarious speech to a bunch of Illinois fans yesterday, and he closed with this gem:

- Weber, on the Big Ten race: “The league should be wide open and we can be right in the middle of it. I do know one thing, though. I think Indiana will suck. Don’t put that on the Internet.”

Awwww. Brucey still hasn’t gotten over losing Eric Gordon! Isn’t that cute?

For his own sake, Bruce’s team better not suck next year. If the Illini come anywhere close to that 16-19 record, Bruce will be stuck obsessing about Indiana on his free time. He’ll have lots of it.

    I don't know what part of NC you're in, but did you catch Bomani Jones on the radio this morning calling Brucey Baby the Dummy of the Week? Basically, he said the same thing we all are, about how Bruce should worry more about saving his job rather than insulting Indiana–and then asking for it not to be reprinted on the internet. It was beautiful, and refreshing coming from some Triangle-area sports talk types.

    He also said: “Not only is Peoria the basketball capital of Illinois, but the world.”

    To me, that's another clear cut shot right at IU. Everyone, and i mean everyone knows that the state of Indiana is the mecca of basketball Him saying Peoria is the basketball capitol of the world is laughable. Taiwan has a better case of being the basketball capitol of the world than Illinois. You know what, IU might suck this year, but i bet we still beat Illinois, what does that say about them!? The coach and program are frauds, as well as their “orange krush” student section. The reason why you see a lot of orange in their arena is because their student sections are actually inmates from the U.S. Penitentiary in Marion. A recruiting hotbed as well for Weber. Have fun coaching at the lowly program that is Illinoise, Ms. Gerber Weber, your time is about up.
