· Teams since 1976 that compare to what Indiana built in terms of continuity
· The schedule Indiana played and whether it was a conscious effort by Bob Knight to prepare his team for what was to come
· Did the 1976 team strike any fear into its opponents?
· What the crowds were like at Assembly Hall in 1975 and 1976
