    Default Kind of an interesting parallel between the Pacers and Colts

    The Pacers finished the season 35-47, 12 games below .500.

    The Colts finished the season 16-4, 12 games above .500.

    The Pacers didn't make the postseason.

    The Colts won the postseason.

    The Pacers lost their last 4 regular season games.

    The Colts won their last 4 postseason games.

    The Pacers were 26-21 before the Colts won the Super Bowl, and 9-26 afterwards.

    Is the law of averages in full effect or what?

    Just think how depressed you'd be if the Colts had lost to New England again. Personally I would have

    Agree. This season sucked, but losing at home to NE would have crushed this town for good.

    That game was our Super Bowl, the Bears were just a technicality.

    On topic again, interesting numbers Shade, good work putting them together. I guess we spent the city's entire karma reserve pulling out that come from behind win vs NE and then the SB title.

    All is not bad......

    We have the Super Bowl champions. That's far bigger than any other championship in the U.S.A. Let Dallas or San Antonio or Phoenix or Miami have their little old NBA championship, what we have is far more prestigious (although I'm actually a slightly bigger NBA fan, the truths the truth).

    We still have Peyton Manning, Marvin Harrison, Reggie Wayne, Joseph Addai, Dwight Freeney, and Bob Sapp. All awesome football players, most awesome human beings


    D.J. White is returning to Indiana, combine that with a solid supporting cast and a great recruiting class led by one of the top high schoolers in the country in Eric Gordon, and we could be legit national championship contenders.

    Notre Dame football is slowly returning to glory under Charlie Weiss and have one of the best recruiting classes in the country.

    Butler had a great season and is now one of the top mid-major schools in the country and with the added reputation comes better recruits and even more success.

    Purdue had their best season in quite a while and also have a solid recruiting class. They could be back in the top-25 within a year or three.
