    Again, I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to beat UK. And I always enjoy playing UNC.

  • VegasHoosier

    We kinda got hosed with the 5 seed but looking at the strength of schedule for the Top 25 teams, we easily had the most cupcake of all of them.

  • Ms hoosier

    Well we wanted to play Kentucky. We win and they win and we got our wish.

  • ’11Hoosier

    The possibility to play UK and UNC in the second and third rounds is exciting, even if they’re tough opponents.

  • Ben thorne

    May the force be with us

    There is no possible way we could have received a worse draw….The fact that Purdue, Maryland and I.U. all are seeded 5th is ridiculous…..West Virginia a 3?.….Iowa State a 4?….Utah a 3? (They just lost to Oregon by 30)….Duke and A&M higher ?….Syracuse and Michigan shouldn’t even be in there…..They are just playing games with the I.U. / UK potential matchup (seems to be a recurring theme)……Horrible and unfair seeding !

  • cbags05

    Meh….it is nearly impossible to win the whole thing anyway. We might get to play uk. Yogi will have a chance to shut up all of the ulis lovers. That is worth having this “bad draw” for.

  • Ole Man

    No; it isn’t.
    Sorry too be so curt.
    However, I want championships. Not one-on-one BS matchups.

  • Hardwood83

    Yeah the B1G as a whole seems to have gotten hosed. But IU shoulda beat an average Michigan team and maybe gotten a #4. The only solution now is to win 3-4 games and then no one cares what the seeding was.

  • Sandra Wilson

    I’m glad you see that too….There’s no way we were going to get a #4 seed with UK a #4 seed….That’s a money matchup they continually exploit and that’s why we received a #5 seed…..People that say they want an early match with UK are clueless !….There were 3 teams I wanted to avoid as long as possible – UK, KU, and UNC….As I said before, we couldn’t have had matchups that were any worse.

  • cbags05

    Championships are obviously the goal. I forgot about them since i was only 5 when they won the last one. So dudes like me have to find other little victories to celebrate.

  • Ole Man

    When IU finally wins that next banner, you will be thrilled!!
