Indiana cuts down the nets…after losing on Senior Night

Ready for your daily IULOL? Last night, Indiana celebrated its Senior Night by cutting down the nets…after losing to Ohio State.

The Buckeyes really spoiled Indiana’s plans to celebrate winning the regular season Big 10 Championship. After Ohio State beat Indiana by nine, the Hoosiers had a trophy presentation, received Big 10 Championship hats, and cut down the nets to commemorate what was now at least a share of the title. And no, to them that didn’t seem at the least bit odd:

Jordan Hulls: “We earned that right. Obviously we didn’t like to lose, but we earned the right to cut down the nuts.”

Tom Crean: “There’s no question we were going to do that. We’re gonna hang our own banner up there, and eventually we’re gonna individualize those banners that are up there now. That’s what we’re gonna do in this program. … Once Sunday night came, that was a given. Whether it’s shared, whether it’s not shared, they’ve earned that.”

In addition, the program’s seniors — Derek Elston, Jordan Hulls and Christian Watford — waited until after the game to go through their Senior Day ceremony, which included speeches to a disappointed Hoosier crowd.

Big 10 (Co-)Champions popcorn boxes and replica rings are currently being manufactured to further commemorate the occasion.

    I could see if they tie for the Big 10 title putting up a banner since they have won 1 in 20 years, but cutting down the nets after losing your last home game is weird. IU is 10-4 their last 14 games. So, that may be the only nets they get.

    The link left out a few things. You forgot to mention IU getting their participation trophies for the 2012-2013 College Basketball Season. They also went out for a pizza afterwards though Hulls was a little disappointed, he though it would be snow cones(he was going get grape though cherry is good too).

    I think they cut down the nets after Tom Crean’s brother-in-law won the Super Bowl. Of course they did it the weekend before the Super Bowl because it was better than 50% chance they wouldn’t be wrong. Wink.

    After this crop of players is gone, and IU goes back to their losing tradition, I guess they’ll be hanging little green “participation” ribbons from the rafters after every loss, and having cupcakes and punch in the locker room.

    I never thought I’d say this but I believe I would actually pull for UofL or even DUKE to win the title this year over IU. I dislike those programs as much as everyone else but atleast UofL has a couple players who deserve to be in the title game and if DUKE won it at least they would act like they have been there before. If IU wins it the rest of the world will have to hear about it for the next 30 years…That fan base “and coach & team” have become more annoying than any team in recent history. Think about it, the only SEC team to win it all “other than UK” in recent times was Florida, in all reality we didn’t have to hear about it THAT much when they won it and they are in our league…When KU, UNC or DUKE wins it all it doesn’t blow back on us that much to where they rub it in our face for years, why? because they are not SEC teams and they have a little pride…If IU wins it all this year we will hear about it for ever!!! They will act like it’s something UK has never done before…IU is the most classless attention whores in the NCAA.

    This is what Crean wanted when they beat us last year. To make them relevant on a national stage he had to get under Kentucky’s skin to create a rivalry vibe that really doesn’t exist. Why would he do that? Hmmm. It gives them a false sense of accomplishment and also puts their name in the discussion since they were so irrelevant. Now everytime we talk about IU like we care, he wins. Until they actually win something, they’re no better than Butler to me. Same for all this Big 10 love. 1 championship since 1990. When the conference wins something I’ll buy in that they’re the best conference. Plus there is no rivalry with IU yet as we have dominated the series over the past quarter century. It will take time, not words on their part to create a rivaly that may have existed in the 80s

    Listened to Mike and Mike this morning (I know, gag), but they talked about this a lot. Greeny said he didn’t like it, while Golek defended it. One of their reporters, who happens to be a huge IU fan, admitted she turned it off after the loss, but later regretted it. There you go IU, even your BIGGEST fans were turning it off. Time to find a better solution. But cutting the nets down doesn’t make any sense. The nets signify having a remembrance of that particular game. It just doesn’t make sense.

    It’s funny how IU and Crean celebrates everything they do. Win or lose they want to hang up banners, popcorn boxes, game ball after beating Kentucky. No other IU team has hung a banner they are added to the banner already hanging, but no Crean wants his own. Funny.They will be selling T-shirts today with a net on them saying we lost the game but we have the nets!

    LAst year: phone book cover of the shot, popcorn bucket of the shot, display case of the shot, rings for beating #1 UK and losing in the sweet 16

    This year: trophy, cutting down the nets, hats for winning a SHARE of the big ten regular season title.

    By golly I do believe Indiana has done more celebrating for winning nothing than Kentucky did for winning the national championship!

    88. It was at least the end of the season. And we knew where they ended up at the end of the year. If IU flames out in the round of 32, these celebrations will look silly.

    And besides, that was their excuse for all the celebrations LAST year. How many more times are they going to celebrate being brought out of a dark period? We retired their jerseys and left it at that. They keep looking for ways to celebrate being brought out of a dark time. Will they create a state holiday for it next year, celebrating being B1G runners up after a “dark period?”

    As an IU fan I would rather not have had them cut down the nets for commemoration purposes, although I get why they felt they wanted to do it as a group. To those who want to give the program grief for having their senior night after the game here’s an fyi…it’s always been that way not just last night.

    As my girlfriend is a UK grad she enjoys coming to this site for her UK sports news. As an IU grad I enjoy going to InsideTheHall. My girlfriend recently pointed out to me that the posters on here are so much more vile towards IU fans than IU fans are towards UK fans. I point to all the name calling and vile things said towards IU on this post as proof alone. And IU has had nothing to do with UK this season! I can only laugh when she says she’s embarrassed by the comments by UK fans. In your own words, “Act like you’ve been there before”.

    Why does anyone seem suprised at this? For such a long time IU has had nothing to celebrate so they started celebrating everything……including moral victories. When they beat my beloved Wildcats last year on their home court, they rushed the floor. When such a thing happens at Rupp, as it often does, the court remains clear. It has been done before, we are winners here and we are used to it. I expect nothing less of IU, they celebrated a monster on the bench for 30 years.

    The Unforgettables brought the program back and went to the elite 8. If this was last year I’d understand, except for sr celebration AFTER the game. That is dumb. But IU was in the elite 8 last year and should be beyond this mid major celebration stuff. Shoot UK didn’t even cut down the nets a few years ago after winning the conference tournament. Don’t ever think they have done it during the regular season, not even when we got win #2000!!!! And Creans freeness of it makes it even worse…if possible

    Honoring seniors after the game is a tradition at IU, regardless of the game outcome. It is nothing new. UK was mediocre for about two seasons with the unforgettables and they retired ther jerseys. IU has struggled for 10 years and we are not allowed to honor these kids? UK struggles for two years and makes their players lifelong heroes, IU struggles for 10 years and UK fans have a problem with their celebrations? I will say it again, it is hipocrisy!

    99 I think everyone just thinks it is foolish to cut down the nets after a loss on Senior night. However, if IU goes to Michigan and wins the Big10 outright, you will have the last laugh.

    95 we really don’t care if your girlfriend is embarrassed by comments on here. We do act like we’ve been there before…when we’ve actually been there. We don’t rush the court when we beat a team in Dec, bc we’ve been there before. And we don’t cut down nets after possibly sharing the conference title bc we’ve been there before. We laugh at IU when they cut down nets for a regular season…bc we haven’t been there before.

    also, 95 your story doesn’t make sense…how would your gf know that UK fans are more “vile” towards IU fans than IU fans are towards UK unless she’s going on IUs site? Why would she be reading an IU site? My parents raised me better than to date a Hoosier, but even if I stooped that low I would not go anywhere near my boyfriend’s team’s site (yes, I’m a female)

    99 – I thought last years team brought you out of the struggle. Now it’s this years team? So when this team gets bounced from the tourney before the EE like last year, does that make next years team the team that brought you out of struggles? How many years can you use that excuse? And the Unforgetables went to the Elite 8, farther than your candy stripers will make it.

    Being a diehard UK fan who now lives 30 miles North of Bloomington I can tell you that IU fans can be vile and harsh. I can’t go to the grocery store without some old man in a red sweater giving me grief over my UK sweatshirt. I usually just tell him that he doesn’t know me and to turn around and pay for his depends. In all serious all my best friends are IU fans and when I texted them this morning how embarrassing it was of IU cutting down the nets last night everyone of them(all 11 of them) agreed. IU has always celebrated senior night after the game which I don;t have any probelm with but cutting down the nets might have been the stupidest things I have seen in my 30 years of watching college B ball

    I also wanted to say that I had no problem with IU fans rushing the court last year when Watford hit the shot. To me that is one of the things that makes college ball great. No matter how sick it made me. I can honestly say, even though I’m sure I will hear about it, that I wish that the Cats played in a smaller, on campus arena where the crowd is off the hook instead of the Colossal snooze fest that Rupp has become. I cant tell you how many times in the last 4-5 years even in the midst of the great teams we have had that I have heard the announcers comment on how quiet 23,000 are.

    I’m surprised that no one has pointed out that ESPN broadcasted the senior night “festivities” on espn3.com. I guess ESPN has decided they should get it broadcasted because they’re so special, when in fact, who outside of the state of Indiana wants to watch that sad excuse for “festivities?” The fans in the arena didn’t even want to watch it.

    @104 – is it that hard to figure out that we talk basketball together? If I must I will explain it to you. She sees what is on UK sites, including this one. I see what is on IU sites. We talk about it because we love basketball. She likes to point out all IU things that appear on this site to me. She comments to me on what people are saying in the comment section. I would do the same in pointing out UK stories on IU sites but truth be told there just aren’t any. If IU isn’t playing UK then the writers just aren’t doing stories on them. Was that so hard to figure out? The rest of your comment just proves UK wants a rivalry with IU more than IU wants one with UK. You seem to detest IU way more than IU does UK.

    HoosierNation, I am following what you are saying, and it mostly makes perfect sense to me. The only part I don’t understand is this: If you read the IU site and your girlfriend reads the UK site, then why are you the one posting on the UK site? Shouldn’t this post here be by your girfriend and not you?

    What’s the big deal? At least he didn’t decide to play dodgeball and wiffle ball with his players like Calapari did LMFAO . BTW the place was packed during the senior night festivities . Cutting the nets down did not happen till 1230. Quit being bitter about IU because you guys suck this year. Even with Noel. Kentucky scaredy cats. To afraid to continue the 44 year rivalry. We offered 2 neutral sites(cal wanted) and 1 at Rupp and 1 at assembly hall. It’s so obvious that he ducked us. And then you guys sign with UNC….,, gee I wonder if its because they suck to and u guys have a chance of winning. Keep it classy Uk.

    I would assume that all of you UK fans that think it was embarrassing for IU to cut down the nets, for a championship that they did win, are embarrassed by Calipari giving Drake, a rapper who did not play for UK, a championship ring last year, right?
