The sign in the photo pretty much says it all.
We have great soccer, tennis, baseball, swimming, diving, and softball teams. But let's be honest, at Indiana, it's all about basketball.
The students grew up shooting hoops in their driveways, watching Hoosier basketball on television, and listening to their family discuss the state of Hoosier basketball. We, as students, grew up watching some of the best Hoosiers in history: Tom Coverdale, Dane Fife, AJ Moye, Jared Jeffries, AJ Guyton, Kirk Haston, and so many more. We have been force-fed IU basketball, and none of us would go back and change that.
Football season is coming up in a few months, and you know what that means: Hoosier basketball is close behind it. Discussions at football games are not about whether to run or pass, they are about whether Jordan Hulls will start shooting more.
Basketball season in Bloomington rivals that of football season in Gainesville or Tallahassee. It isn't the biggest thing, it's the only thing.
Beat up on the Hoosiers while you can folks, your time to do so is running out. Because as I said before, WE'RE BACK.
