    Great stuff guys…but the picture makes me laugh.

    Looks like Matty took his jump to “his apex” got knocked by Remy and Remy is still going up…oh to be young and athletic.

  • Remy is just starting to take off with his jet pack, its how he got home from the game.

    Jason King just wrote an article on ESPN and cited Crean as “ESPN.com’s National Coach of the Year” . 

    Did I miss something? Did he let something slip out?

    Nice podcast guys, didn’t know where else to post the COTY question

    I just saw this on ESPN.com. It is in the re-seeding the sweet sixteen story by Jason King. I don’t know if it is his opinion or for real.

    I agree with Kartje on Watford being the X-factor for the Hoosiers in this game and I think it goes beyond him needing to have a good game offensively. Remember Terrence Jones’ performance in the first game? We’ll take one more in Atlanta please. Kidd-Gilchrist was a beast in the first one and I guess you put Vic on him, but I don’t think Indiana really has a guy to shut him down. I don’t know if you can rely on Zeller’s consistency as the guys mentioned. He had a good game against Davis in the first one, but you can not bank on a repeat that performance. Davis was held to 24 minutes in the game due to foul trouble. Indiana has to go after him and try to get him in foul trouble again. The Hoosiers have to REBOUND. Those were some random keys to the game, but important. Another good podcast. Thanks fellas.

    Kentucky win was ‘just as case of us getting hot at the end’? Um, no! We got a lead and they got hot late, and Watford saved us!

    You guys seem to forget we can and have beat great teams, and not just because we’ve played out of our minds. We have a great chance to win!
