Hoosiers to open NCAA Tournament against New Mexico St. in Portland

The brackets for the 2012 NCAA Tournament have been revealed.

Indiana earned a No. 4 seed in the South region and will open the tournament against New Mexico State on Thursday, Mar. 15 in Portland at the Rose Garden.

We’ll have much more in the coming hours, but for now, what do you think of the Hoosiers draw? Do you like the path to a possible Sweet 16? Or did the committee not do IU’s overall resume justice?

    I don’t think there is any way Wisconsin loses to Montana. I’ve seen both teams play. Montana has some good players and they play hard and they have a really good coach. But they won’t beat Wisconsin (unless Wiskey is looking past them which I doubt Bo will allow).

    I don’t think IU will lose to N.Mex State either. Michigan and PU, I don’t know about but I don’t think either team is likely to fold easily.

    I am strangely okay with all the “hoosier hate” we’ve been getting from certain media types. I think this team plays well when it is against the odds, plus I also enjoy making them eat crow.  We’ve been down for awhile, and now it’s time to prove ourselves. I am fine with that. I am also excited to have the opportunity to take pUKe out! If we are to go far in the tourny we would have had to take out a top team pretty early, what better team than Kentucky.

    I love getting the late game on Thursday.  I pray that Vic can cure his shooting woes.  3-20 over the last two games isn’t going to cut it.  Hit the gym Vic and work on that stroke.  NMSU is going down on Thursday.  Would like nothing more than a solid rematch with pUKe.  If we get them twice in the same year it would be an all time great accomplishment.  Plus who is gonna beat us if we can beat them?

    If they pull that off, I’ll send my kid there.

     I think Gotlieb got bad info off the computer he stole.  Why this guy gets any TV time or print time is beyond me.  I don’t believe for a moment he’s unbiased and I love when he is wrong, which is frequently BTW…

    UK will be out for blood against uconn… an upset is very unlikely. Plus they are playing uconn 55 miles from Lexington.

    I think we will win it all if we beat uk.

    what flavor Kool-Aid are you drinking today?  red.  pUKe beats IU by 10+ if we play again.  Cody needs to play PF with Pritch underneath to beat them, giving CZ flexibility to score from anywhere.

    I’m glad we’re playing NMSU this year instead of next year.  I just read that they have this Indian kid from Toronto coming in next year – Sim Bhullar.  He is 7’4″, 355 pounds!  Are you kidding me?

    I’m wanting to record the games this weekend. Have they announced the network and time for Thur and Sat games in Portland?

    I am not surprised that IU is in the same regional as Kentucky.  IU’s selection and seeding had just been announced and I didn’t even have a chance to take it in when Seth Davis said we would lose to Wichita St.  Damn, what’s his problem with IU anyway?  I would love to see the Hoosiers make that a..hole eat his words.
