Indiana Fans…You can Buy a Blob of Red Ink!

First it was a display case, then a popcorn box, then a phone book, and now Indiana fans can celebrate the biggest victory in the history of their program (to hear them tell it) with a huge blog of red ink. An Indiana artist, promoted by the largest IU site, Peegs.com, is selling the above “work of art” here, entitled “The Resurrection.” It is what the scene on the floor after the Christian Watford shot would have looked like had all the fans merged into one large red blob. It will be perfect for Indiana fans to hang in their houses, next to their “Big Handsome” t-shirts and Dwight Schrute life-size cutouts and remember the program’s only memorable moment of the last 25 years. I am considering ordering one myself, not because of its symbolic value in portraying the moment when Indiana basketball returned to glory, but as living proof that every human being, no matter their age, race, gender, creed, or ability, can put something on a canvas and call it art.

    Indiana is the North Korea of basketball. In the capital city their main attraction is some random useless US boat they captured in the 1950’s and to this day it is the pride of their entire military. I’m gonna go rush the court now

    Don’t they realize how much respect / admiration they’re giving UK with this? They’re essentially saying, “Kentucky is the kings of college basketball and look at how we beat them this one time.”

    Will there ever be a painting of them winning a big game on someone else’s court?

    Are we sure this isn’t an artist’s conception of all the beef tainted with horsemeat stored in Assembly Hall?

    (Note: All the beef tainted w/ horsemeat would also be well-coached in the art of opportune late-game flopping.)

    Maybe they’ll make it a series:
    1) “The Screen” – I’m hoping there’s a painting of the illegal screen set by Cody Zeller on Teague in the backcourt that allowed that play to happen
    2) “The Trash” – The fans cursing and taunting other UK fans at the game. I know this is hard to capture in a painting, so how about a picture of a pile of dung?
    3) “Reality” – A picture of the tournament game where IU couldn’t get within 10 points of UK for most of the game.

    Maybe this artist can make a new painting of Minnesota storming their court after they beat IU last night. I almost feel sorry for IU & UL fans when they don’t win it all this year; too bad I think it’s hilarious.

    I saw that last night and found it hilarious. Matt, nice to see you are finally coming around and realizing who the worst, most self-righteous, and annoying fans in college basketball really are. (I told you as much last summer when my husband and I had the chance to talk with you at Orange Leaf. : ) )
    IU fans are simply the worst. Please crush them on your show today.

    Given that they only won on a last second shot, and later we killed them in the tourney, you’d think they’d show a little more humility. And whether or not they’ve been “resurrected” will depend greatly on how they do in the tourney this year, especially if Zeller jumps to the NBA. Crean’s basically had all his notable success with either Wade or Zeller. They could end up being a 10 win team again next year, and 15 the next, with people calling for Crean’s head. How would the resurrection look then?

    Zeller got exposed again last night. If he isn’t getting dunks in transition or shooting free throws, he is useless.

    The only reason Indiana has a shot at doing anything in the NCAA tourney is because college basketball sucks this year. They lose to our team from a year ago by 15.

    26) How crazy is it that so far (without a Wiggins, Randle or Gordon), our recruiting class’s average height is 6’7″, and none of them are under 6’5″? We will most likely start no one under 6’5″ next year. A lot of teams are going to have major match up problems.

    I know a Korean girl who received (receives?) large $$ grants from the German government to create “art instillations” and “interpretive pieces” while basically freeloading in Berlin. She created one “work” of “art,” which consisted of nothing more than an empty jar into which she reportedly farted. This jar stood on a pedestal in some museum in Germany and people went to see it…and the German government paid for it. No joke.

    36) Anyone who plays Indy in the tourney will have that Minnesota tape in, breaking down play after play. Indiana will get by their 16 matchup (unless they drop another game or 2, they’ll still get a 1-seed), but that 8/9 game is going to be a hard one for them.

    In Indianas’ last time out, did anyone else hear Crean tell his player to “fake an elbow to the head”?

    I look at Indiana playing this year and I don’t see “it”. I’m not sure what others are seeing. Maybe the Big 10, BIG, Big-Plus or whatever, are a conference that is down this year. Heck everyone is down this year. It will probably be an entertaining tournament, but maybe not from an artistic perspective.

  46. I remember friends of mine in college making their dorm room wall look like that just by splattering Testors paints on the wall.

    OK… it shows they really care about basketball. Certainly UK fans can relate to that. And the painting, well, it’s not really that bad actually. Now having said that… there is something desperate and pathetic and totally lacking on perspective to call it “The Resurrection.”

    They can hang it next to the three showing the floor being rushed on them from this season. Careful, the paint on one is still wet!!

    Why root against IU more than UofL when it comes to the tourney? This is why. I HATE UofL, but IU fans are worse. Look at what they’ve done over a shot, in a regular season game, over a team that went on to beat them in the NCAAT and win it all! My God, the guy who decided to build the Taj Mahal in rememberance of his deceased wife would be tired of IU’s act. If IU won it all, their fans would be insufferable. The monument would tower anything the world has ever seen.

    At least Leroy added some definition to his subjects. Seems like McDonalds had a set of glasses with purchase back in 1976; perhaps? Memory serves that they were much more “artistic” than this. What a DISHONOR to UK.

    My God, That’s art?? IU’s so called “Resurrection” is all about smoke and mirrors, a great big illusion!! I am in NO way a UK fan, but I have a ton more respect for the UK program than I will ever have for IU…That storming the court last year did it for me… Geez, people at least act like you’ve been there before!! BTW, The Sweet 16 rings still makes me laugh!!

    Seriously, what happened to IU fans? Have they completely forgotten their history? Our program has had a “rebirth” after a few not so stellar years, yet, we don’t do jr. high level art and we don’t rush the floor under any circumstances. Hey, Hoosiers, it’s time to look in the mirror and reflect on what you’ve become. Kind of an embarrassment with massive UK envy.

    Anyone see Crean instructing his players in the huddle at the 0:27 mark on the proper form for faking an elbow hit and flopping? Kind of like Zeller grabbing the opponent’s hand and making him grab his crotch. Such douchebaggery!



  67. John Ellis
    10:34 am February 27, 2013 Permalink

    I think this is actually called ‘Insurrection” and is a painting of the impulsive mass suicide that ensued in Assembly Hall after Minnesota destroyed the notion last night that Indiana is a ‘cut above’ and is likely to win the title.

    What makes IU fans worse than UL fans is that they will attack not just on a basketball level, but also a state/resident level. UL fans for the most part will just talk junk about basketball. Fans of Indiana truly feel that they are a higher form of human than residents/fans of UK. They think we are all dating within the family and cut on the educational systems. With Indiana fans- it’s personal.

    Did anyone notice during the timeout at the end of the game Creepy Crean making an elbow motion? Subsequently, after the inbounds pass, HeShe faked a “flagrant” hit to his eye. It didn’t hit me until that play that Crean told them to fake a flagrant. Hope this type of bush league cheap basketball cost them a championship. Pitiful.

    It’s not even funny anymore. It’s just sad and pathetic that a meaningless regular season win over a year ago is still being celebrated in such a fashion. The resurrection?? Of what?? They are having their best season in a long time but they still haven’t achieved anything yet. You have to accomplish something meaningful in order to call a program resurrected. Get to a Final Four or win the Championship before you call yourselves resurrected. Not winning a meaningless regular season game or getting to the Sweet 16. That’s just sad for a program with 5 Championships to their name. Even UL fans don’t storm the court or celebrate mediocrity and they only have 2 Championships. I mean Indiana can’t even hold on to a #1 ranking or even beat anyone meaningful away from home. So why all the celebrating Hoosiers? You act like you’ve proved something when in actuality the only thing you’ve proved is that you can’t be good teams away from home, can’t hold on to a #1 ranking and Crean still hasn’t gotten past the Sweet 16 but once in his career and that was almost a decade ago.

    Question #1: How will we know when IU Basketball truly has been “resurrected”?
    Answer #1: When someone makes a print, popcorn box, and program celebrating their stroming of the home court after beating IU in the regular season. (This may never happen.)
    Question #2: How will we know when UK Basketball has sunk to IU’s level?
    Answer #2: When UK fans storm Rupp’s floor after beating ANYONE. (This will never happen.)
