Hoosier hilarity

redneck_mentor

Typical Indiana fans.

Message boards (and comment sections) often bring out the worst in people, so the following should be taken with a grain of salt. However, it cannot be denied that some Indiana fans seem pretty confident about their chances on Saturday. Would I go as far to say delusional? Yes, yes I would. Take a look at some of the posts made on hoosiernation.com. I assure you these are all real posts.

IU —– 76
UK—- 71

Hustle beats Talent, when Talent doesn’t Hustle

I’m sorry, but if one thing can be argued against this Kentucky team it is not that they don’t hustle. John Calipari teams are known for their toughness and ability to run the floor and this team is no exception.

81-80 IU with a winning jump shot from the corner…………………….by Elston.

This one predicts Derek Elston – IU’s seventh man, who is playing 13 minutes per game – to hit the game winner. Uhm, what?

One4Wall wrote: “All you are looking at is offense. UK averages 8 more rebounds per game (44 to 36) and 7 more blocks per game (11 to 4). UK is also #1 in FG% defense (32.6%) while IU is #39 (38.1%).”

What’s your point? You don’t score points for getting blocks.

A UK fan interjects in some ridiculous argument that Anthony Davis won’t be a factor in the game, with a few statistics. Then an IU fan comes back with this gem. You don’t score points for blocks, that’s right. But neither does IU. Kentucky blocks all of your shots, Hoosiers have ZERO points. See how that works?

Just have a minimum tooth requirement at the door and a no mullet policy. Problem solved.

This is funny, because when I look up the definition of “Hoosier” the qualification for mullets is right there; the only thing funnier than Indiana making fun of Kentucky is Tennessee making fun of Kentucky. Pot, meet kettle.

mullets

…You have a team out to a solid 8-0 start, with a couple legit wins under their belt …  And,  you’ve got a team comprised almost entirely of freshmen and sophomores getting ready to enter an environment which has been described by neutral third parties as “the loudest place in the country” when its at its peak.

Legit wins? Who are you kidding? The toughest team the Hoosiers have played this year is a 5-3 NC State team, which is nationally ranked, at best in the mid-60s, all the way down to the 80s. Aside from that, does a 4-4 Butler team who is scoring 67 points-per-game really impress you? Oh, and if you think Assembly Hall is really one of the most intimidating arenas in the nation, you need to get outside the state of Indiana more.

if Cal really thinks that IU fans won’t be 99.9% of the building, then he really is an idiot.  Those 100 or so Kentucky fans aren’t going to make a difference.  In terms of fan support, Kentucky can admittedly talk down to every program in the country, save one.  IU.

Ha! Haha! This guy expects only 100 Kentucky fans in the building. Challenge accepted. And if you want to get really technical, 99.9% of Assembly Hall capacity is only 38 people.

…who I would take if I had to play one game. Not who I would select for four years, not who I’d select for a whole season, not who I’d select for the NCAA tournament, but who I’d select for THIS game.

Hulls vs. Teague
Jones vs. Lamb
Oladipo vs. Gilchrist
Watford vs. Jones
Zeller vs. Davis

Rick Bozich wrote this article where he says “you’d take five guys from UK before you selected any from IU.” This is very true. I give you three golf claps, Mr. Bozich. But one IU fan doesn’t take too kindly to these words. In his post, he wants Zeller over Davis and Oladipo over Kidd-Gilchrist. Heck, I’ll give him Hulls over Teague, just because we’ve seen how bad Teague can get (but I don’t think he’ll be worse than Hulls on Saturday). Let this sink in. He wants Cody Zeller over the unanimous No. 1 overall draft pick in the NBA next season.

I hate Kentucky.

It’s funny, this is how far Indiana has fallen. I couldn’t care less about IU, yet some of their fans still have so much hatred.

I think that the crowd can do more to help the hoosiers than it will to mess with UK’s players. I think this game could possibly be the loudest game any of these players will ever play in for the rest of their lives, but to me that still shouldn’t mess with UK’s players too much.

He must be completely unaware Kentucky plays in Rupp Arena. I know there’s a difference between home and hostile crowds, but UK players know what noise is.

This is just a glimpse into the eyes of the IU fanbase and doesn’t at all reflect the fanbase as a whole. I know plenty of Hoosiers and they are all civil and respectful. Every school as their crazies, and usually those are the people who take to the boards. Enjoy the game, folks. I predict this one won’t be close. Undefeated season, don’t forget it.

Yeah, it’s possible IU can beat UK, and if I was an IU fan I’d be all about saying go IU let’s crush UK, but to say that Zeller is better than Davis or Oladipo is better than Gilchrist? No way, ever.

    I’m a UK student from Indianapolis who was born and raised a Purdue fan, so I hate more IU more than you could imagine. I am considering not going home for christmas break if we lose due to the amount of shit I will hear. I will give them one thing though, Assembly Hall is one of the loudest arenas in the country. It’s different than Rupp in that the stands go up more than out. Making it seem like fans are closer to the court. I am scared how Teague will play. Indiana people do not take to kindly to top talent leaving the state of Indiana for their higher education. He will probably hear the loudest of the boo birds.

    “If you are going to become depressed because you will never be as good as your brother and then drive drunk in one of the vehicles that your coach provided for you before running from the police, make sure you grow a unibrow so the detectives will search for Anthony Davis instead.”

    Stuart,

    This is a much better post than your first and I’m glad to see you are improving… That being said, I still have one major qualm with your article. I realize it’s good to be neutral and discuss Kentucky’s flaws. However, saying, “Just because we’ve seen how bad Teague can get,” is not how you accomplish that. Give me a break, dude. He’s a Freshman who has played exceptionally well in some games while struggling in others. I won’t play the age game with you, because as you acutely pointed out, that’s not your fault. However, the internet is “Age-Blind.” So look back just a few years and see how Derrick Jasper played in his first 8 games, look at Michael Porter, I mean let’s be honest… Look at Ramel’s numbers when he was a Senior.

    Teague is doing just fine and will only get better. Even at his own personal worst thus far, I can confidently say that I have seen worse on that exact same court, not more than 3 years ago. Sure, he hasn’t been as electrifying as Wall, or dependable as Knight in his first 8 games, but it’s December 8th… Before we go saying a player has been “bad” lets be realistic and thankful for what we have.

    Stu, it is this exact logic that prevents me from writing you off as a blogger. Sure, your first few posts have been mediocre at best. However, they haven’t been terrible, and like Teague, I assume you will get better. Thus, I won’t go around boards discussing how terrible your stories can be, but instead I will just wait for the day you improve.

    To suggest that IU players haven’t played in pressure games is utter non-sense. A good portion of their players are from Indiana – and if you know anything about Indiana high school basketball – you’ll know that many of those games are in packed gyms seating 5,000 or more – it is HIGH pressure.

    No – not the same talent level as they’ll see on Saturday – but those Indiana kids know pressure.

    Just a warning for you guys. And Hulls is a solid point guard. I saw him play at the Derby Classic – he put a cross over on Peyton Siva that nearly broke Siva’s ankles. The kid is a throw-back point guard like Travis Ford. Great shooter, high basketball IQ, deceptively quick.

    I do detest all the insults about Indiana’s white players by the UK fans. Why are UK fans suddenly so racist? Why can’t we accept that there are good players of all colors? To single players out because of the color of their skin – that’s pathetic.

    UK has sold their soul. I know if Nolan Richardson or Arkansas fans had made some disparanging commment about our little slow white guard when talking about Ford – we would have seen it as classless – but that’s what we’ve become.

    Can’t you see that UK fans – we’ve become what we once hated?

    @35 I am all for giving MT a little slack but are you trying to say that Jasper and Porter are something to measure up to? Porter was the worst PG that I have EVER seen at UK and I am 34. Jasper was injured his entire time @ UK. He and Bradley both played out of position for the worst coach @ UK. Any kind of comparison where you say it is ok because, “Porter did it too” is just idiotic. So before you go calling out the newest member of the ksr family for what he posts, then maybe your posts shouldn’t make you sound like a retard. just sayin’…

    maybe then ole Stu will listen to what you say, but I doubt it.

    If there is one thing I’m looking forward to most Saturday it is this. Kentucky up 17 with 7 minutes to go and the IU faithful starting to exit the building and suddenly the few thousand members of Big Blue Nation who have found a way to make it into the building rise as one and chants of “Go Big Blue, Go Big Blue, Go Big Blue” start raining down over Assemble Hall. I almost feel bad for IU fans because they have been down for so long and they are Rick Pitino like premature in thinking they are back. I believe the atmosphere in the building will be very similar to the “Stevie Got Loose” UK/UL football game years ago. The difference being that Indiana doesn’t have the talent to win this game. #WinningTitle8GBB

    35 – that was funny.

    I wish Indiana was as good as they think they are or want to be, whatever. I do wish they were better in general. When I consider which rivalry game to drop, my first instinct is get rid of IU and keep UNC and UL. Then I remember 15-20 years ago the games between IU and UK were very good. They even beat us a few times. They were hard fought wins and great games for both teams. Now it’s more exciting to make fun of IU fans then the actual game. IU hangs for 10 to 20 minutes until the inevitable UK blowout. Even Tubby had IU’s #. If Tom Creamy can bring the old games back maybe it would be worth playing each year. But not the way it’s been.

    Oh yeh, Indiana drivers suck. I hope the Cats are flying. Also UK wins, starting with a big run in the second and coasts by 20+ to the end.

    couldn’t this article just as easily be about the delusion (and now 1 time reality) of UK beating UT in football? I mean year after year on here and other sites it was the same nonsense about UT and ‘this is the year’ etc, etc. And UT won and won and won (and then lost). UK will KILL Indiana on Saturday. But isn’t it the duty of a fan base to be, I don’t know, a fan of the team they support? Of course there is delusion. You just over look it and take it with a grain a salt.

    God forbid the Indiana fans at least think their team has a chance to win. As UK football fans know, every quarter century or so, you get it right.

    I’ve watched IU since the the Knight era.

    IU has gone 8-46 in-conference in Cream’s 3 years. They have finished 11th, 9th & 11th in the B10.
    Their only real addition to the team is Ga-Zeller….a tall kid with potential who needs to hit the weight room.

    Everything else is the same. When you throw in the CTC factor (Coach Tom Crean a.k.a. Clappy The Clown), you have complete chaos on the sidelines to go with the court waste by-product. Watch his timeouts and get a laugh or ten. The players rule it. CTC looks like ritalin boy who forget to take his ritalin.

    CTC is a bitter, snarky, rule breaking (see Gary Harris visit) sales reptile. His charade is that he has a basketball team and he is a coach. His joke is that hoosierbillies are buying it.

    The story here is simple. Turnovers. IU will have 50 of them against this KY team. Their resulting storyline/excuse will be that they are a better team and could have beaten UK had they not turned over the ball. No joke folks….the TomCream-Aid is being swilled in Gloomington these days.
