    I hope Vic has an absolutely great game!!

    I agree Tom. Vic is a true class act. I’ve spoken with him a time or two and his humility is refreshing. He’s always crediting CTC, his teammates, and his family. Sure Hoosier Nation loves the guy b/c he represents the underdog to superstar transformation…but I’d argue they love him for his attitude and demeanor too.

    Absolutely. I would add Cody’s name in with those complimentary words as well.

    Wow not a lot of discussion on this thread.. I like Vic a LOT.. But not a real good thread to generate interest and keep us going this weekend…
    I was really hoping Durant would stay in OKC, would’ve loved to see Vic have an opportunity at a Championship.. Now, that dream just kind of ‘flew out the window’.

    Keep Vic in the pool for future national teams! He belongs!

    I wish all of the former players luck at the next level. Players like VO and others that stayed a little longer, you get attached to more. I will follow all of their post-IU playing careers though.

    These former hoosiers keep making us proud.
