One of the biggest reasons Kansas State athletic director John Currie hired Bruce Weber to coach basketball last spring was his experience with in-state rivalries. Weber was part of a bitter one for 18 years. As an assistant coach under Gene Keady at Purdue, he was on the court for 37 classic bouts with Bob Knight and Indiana. The Hoosiers were dominant back then, winning two national championships and advancing to three Final Fours from the time Keady came to Purdue in 1980 and Weber left for Southern Illinois in 1998.
