    does the writer from chicago (from one of the articles in your blog) actually believe that iu and ui would likely have swapped records if gordon went to ui instead of iu? does he honestly think that iu would be 0-3 in the big ten without gordon? uh…sorry, but iu is far too deep!

    Wow it looks like SD might pull this game out. At least the HOOSIERS will alleviate some of those playoff blues.

    Here’s a thought. Does anyone know of an UI game thread where we could sneak on and act like UI fans and talk about…how great it would be it we had Gordon…Acting as if we can’t stand IU…getting under their skin inside out. Just keep talking about how great IU really is this year, and how it would be nice to have Sampson as our coach…Just some thoughts to drive them crazy. I just like the idea. I thought I hated Ky fans but I have a new set to hate.

  • Those unable to watch: I feel your pain. I’m doing the rare work-on-Sunday thing today, and couldn’t get out of it. Planning on watching the game on DVR later, but I’ve been sneaking snippets here and there in the break room. Nervewracking stuff so far.

    Verne and Billy are way too old to be doing a game together. I really don’t need to listen to them bumble through this game.
