    There's only one solution to this dilemma.

    IPFW must play KU.

    Crean is always on the hot seat in some fan's opinions. But the loss to Ft. Wayne hasn't seemed to cause a spike in idiots... errr... fans calling for his head.

    The only time it would make sense to fire a coach over a loss would be if it were to a lower division team (or, worse, Cleveland State ).
    Some fans claim one series or another runs "real race cars." What's everybody else running, fake race cars? :confused:

    CSU is not only far removed from their Sweet 16 run in the 80s, but even from their days as Butler's main challenge in the Horizon League. They were not only unable to get a D1 team to come to Cleveland for a non-contractually obligated game at the on-campus arena (the three D1 non-HL home games include 2 at the Cavs' arena and one as part of an exempt event), but they couldn't even schedule the maximum 31 games.

    The women's team is even worse as they are likely to get the NCAA's attention for scheduling too many D2 schools (no one else will play them), can't give away scholarships ( I think they're one or two under the limit), and have resorted to free admission and $1 hot dogs to get fans to show up to standalone games (not doubleheaders with men's games).

    While the Browns may be keeping the Vikings out of the cellar of Cleveland sports, the Browns at least seem to have the beginnings of a turnaround.

    Speaking of the Horizon League, maybe we see IPFW use the HL as a steppingstone to a big conference like Butler did.

    Hey, Terry Holland last 7 or so more years after losing to a NAIA team in the greatest upset ever.

    I remember that, the upset of the century: 7'4" Ralph Sampson and the U of Va national champs lost 77-72 to NAIA Chaminade in Hawaii.

    I was at such a game many years ago. A D1 team with a brand new coach was playing a D2 college. The D2 school had only about 1200 students. D1 was favored by 40 points. D1 lead most of the game, but could not put D2 away. D1 would get a lead of 8 to 10 points, and D2 would cut it back down. D1 had a big height advantage until D2 put a 6-9 freshman, playing his 1st college game in against the D1 forward who had at least 2 NBA scouts watching him play that night.

    D2 tied the game with under 30 seconds to go. D1 hit a basket with 17 seconds left to go up by 2. D2 had trouble setting up a play, and called timeout with 1 second left on the clock.

    The D1 team, coaches, fans, and cheerleaders started celebrating like they had won.

    The inbounds pass went to D2's best 3 point shooter, who released the shot in time. Hit nothing but the net after the buzzer. That quieted D1 like turning off a light switch.

    The new D1 coach was told immediately that if he ever lost to a D2 team again he would be fired on the spot. And the D1 forward that was to be a 1st round NBA pick got muscled enough by that 6-9 freshmen (one of my relatives), that he was ignored in the NBA draft.

    Purdue played a hard fought game but just couldn't close the deal. Hopefully IU brings the intensity tonight.

    The lost @ IPFW cancel those out? Nice win for the Hoosiers...it's no secret they play well at home. Was surprised UNC was a marginal favorite @ tip though...IU ATS @ home is really good.

    IU showed good motion last night, still wished that would set some good hard picks... I consider the Ft Wayne loss as young kids just not ready to show up and play.. hopefully lesson learned.

    When OG is out on the court we are a completely different team.. he just amps up the energy and tempo.. even though he can get a head of himself a bit... he imho is the most important cog on the team.

    Can "we" stop with the bitching and moaning; wailing and gnashing of teeth over Knight not coming "home" enough already.

    If I never hear the name Bob Knight again it will be too soon. I don't understand why people just can't/won't let that go!

    Now, something IU has done that is absolutely unacceptable... last night at the pre-game Q&A with the 1981 team they had all the players on a stage with name cards and microphones, except for Landon Turner.
    There was no ramp provided for his wheelchair, so he was stuck on the floor in front of the stage instead of sitting with his teammates.
    I absolutely could not believe it when I saw the pictures on twitter.
    Someone had one job and they failed miserably at it!

    Still fun?
