Look, I dislike hoosierguy's pro-IU, anti-everyone else raging nonsense as much as anyone. Every fan base has them, and as embarrassed as I get about a lot of IU fans, Volquest isn't exactly a pool of sane individuals, either. He's on the extreme end. We all aren't that bad. But when you start throwing **** like this post around, I'm going to feel compelled to defend IU.
Play of the game for me was the beautiful, unscripted play Lance and Scola made in the 4th. Scola cut backdoor on the baseline and Lance found him with a perfect bounce pass. After the defense collapsed Scola kicked it right back to the wide open Lance for a 3. That's not a play Tyler or any of our recent backup big men could make. Scola no doubt will be a difference maker whether he's scoring or not.
It's funny that I get labeled an extremist when all I did was stick up for my alma mater and refute the unwarranted attacks on IU fans for cheering a beloved former player. Oh the horror!
Furthermore, am I the only one that recognizes the blatant hypocrisy in labeling me an extremist when the lunatic rants by multiple posters against IU fans for simply cheering Oladipo are met with nodding approval? Why are their own schools' fanbases so weak that they can't support former players?

My undergrad is Purdue and graduate degree is IU. I like both schools well enough but I will say that I am sick and tired of IU alumni driving like maniacs in and around Indianapolis. SLOW IT DOWN!

What if someone from a school of business or management school were to ask, How did you do this? How did you get the Pacers turned around? Is there a general approach you've taken that can be summarized?
Larry Bird: Yeah, patience.
Edit: So, Warsaw is in Kosciusko County? So, a city that is named after the Polish capital is located in a country named after a Polish national hero. Well, that's fitting

Yeah, I never really considered the Plumlees as part of the fabric of Indiana basketball.
