I'm going to throw it out there. I am going to get hammered for it but I'm going to say it anyway.
There are a lot of people that still aren't satisfied with Tom Crean and his team. If you don't watch it you are going to miss one of the most fun teams Indiana has had in years. In 20 years we could look back on this team as one of our favorites. They play hard. They score. What else could you ask for. And for all those Bob Knight lovers who loved coach Knight because he got more from less, all we heard all preseason was this team can't rebound. We are out rebounding guys left and right now.
This team will still lose games they should win, but will win games they shouldn't. IU went into Nebraska the number one team in the country a couple years ago and lost. IU went into Nebraska last night and won. Nebraska was preseason top 25. To me that's impressive. IU has also beaten SMU who were ranked, Pitt, and Butler who were ranked. That is impressive to me also. That is more than I would have hoped for at the beginning of the season.
Some fans are sitting around waiting and hoping for Brad Stevens, and they're going to miss one of the most special teams Indiana has put on the floor in a couple years. I actually sat behind an older IU fan at the crossroads classic that told me he wished Indiana would have lost that game. All because he hates coach Crean. I told him screw that I want them to win everything.
Are they going to win the national championship, no. They are going to be fun to watch, they are going to play hard, and they are going to score.
