I remember back a few months ago when IU made 17 3's against my Illini. It was heartbreaking, every time we came back, they'd hit another one. I thought it was probably a one time thing. Then I watch the game last night and see them hit their first 8, and 15 of 19. Unbelievable. Welcome to the Final Four, IU.

That was one of the most amazing things I've ever seen watching that game. I was rooting for Kent State (gotta root for the dog!), but damn if I wasn't impressed by that IU team. I'd love to see Mike Davis take them all the way and put the final nail into the Knight coffin.

I was there in person (free tickets no less!!!) and felt the same way. I really didn't care who won as long as I got to see a good game. Not all that I hoped for, but still an enjoyable experience for my first live NCAA tourney game.
Too bad I didn't get the Thursday night tix my stepfather and brother enjoyed tho. To see Duke squirm in person would have been joyous.

Loved seeing those Dookies lose - it's good for their "humility".......and now that my pools have all self destructed and I can win no fame, glory or $$$ - I have to admit I would like to see the Hoosiers do it just to face Booby Knight

WHOO! Hail to old IU, I say. Two more wins, and everybody will be going, “Who in the blue hell is Bobby Knight?”
As it stands, I'm proud to root for a team that has a classy coach, and one who can actually look happy about victories. Hats off to Mike Davis, because he's done one hell of a job already in only his second season as head coach.

Did anybody catch Knight on Bob Costas' HBO show last night? I only caught bits and pieces, but will try to catch the rest as it's reshown over the weekend. Bob's still a little bitter towards Mr. Davis . . .
If my job were to interview Knight, I'd look for work elsewhere methinks. I respect his coaching ability, and am amused at his antics at time, but he just appears so difficult.
Congrats to the Hoosiers. Just as long as Maryland doesn't win, I'm happy. (Natch that means they'll win)
