Oh really, Indiana?

iu

The Indiana students got a little too big for their candy-striped britches this afternoon, as they chanted “Beat Kentucky” toward the end of the Hoosiers’ 84-50 win over Stetson. Isn’t that adorable. This pretty much shows how the IU fans are viewing the UK game, and next weekend the Cats will visit an Assembly Hall that is likely to be as amped up as it has been since Tom Crean came to Bloomington. This is easily the biggest game to come to town in the Crean Era, as Indiana is undefeated, although largely untested, and will be looking to this game as a potential defining moment for the program. Kentucky will have to be ready to go even though they far outclass the Hoosiers in talent.

With all that said, the Cats have a week off and Cal won’t miss an opportunity to communicate the magnitude of the game for Indiana to the team. He might even call it their Super Bowl. Either way, UK won’t be caught off guard when the Hoosiers come out fired up and can make a statement with a dominant performance in their first road game. Until then, though, we get to enjoy the hopeful look in IU fans’ eyes before they’re abruptly returned to reality. They’re so cute, you know, right before they get crushed.

    Gonna be a tough environment which makes me a little nervous. I can see someone like Jordy Hulls hitting a ton of 3s. Too much talent on our side though. Cats win 71-60.

    They’re not deep, not as talented, and you could argue they havent been tested… not like UK anyways.
    One quality win is @ NC St. The next “big win” was Butler.
    No match here as we continue to give the Zeller family a hard time
    Go Cats

    Wow is correct. UNC is overrated. Louisville on the otherhand has played the best of the best. A 4-4 Butler on the road, home games against powerhouses like Ohio, Arkansas State and Lamar. I hear that upcoming IUPUI is almost as good as the Bird led Indiana State team of 1979.

    The past two years, a really bad IU team was in both games going into the final 10 minutes. Anything is able to happen in these big venues. We are young, they got experience, and Cody Zellar is pretty good. Hulls is really good clutch player and will smoke us from 3 if we don’t guard him. I believe we could lose, or this could be a really tough game. Remember, last year we could not win on the road, even when we had overwhelming talent.

    I live and work in indiana. I’m Tired of hearing these Hoosiers. Their hate comes from the NCAA tournament back in 1974-1975 season.

    Dec 7th Indiana beats Kentucky convincingly 74-98.

    Later…

    Mar 22nd Kentucky defeats Indiana in the NCAA Tournament 92-90.

    Mar 29th Kentucky defeats Syracuse in the Final Four 95-79.

    Kentucky moves on to the championship game with UCLA. The night before the game, John Wooden announces his retirement from basketball following Championship game.

    Mar 31st UCLA defeats Kentucky 85-92 and marks John Woodens only victory of Kentucky ever.

    Today’s either remember Kentucky ruining their perfect season. Either they were fans then or their daddy’s or gradaddys were fans and have handed that hatred down for 37 seasons now.

    I guess you’ve got some choices Hoosiers. Learn to live with us, learn to beat us (not likely), learn to join us (it’s pretty sweet) or simply keep being misserable haters.

    Two years ago with Patterson, Wall, Cousins & co., we were down eight early and didn’t take the lead until there were less than 10 minutes in the first half. We then got the lead up to nine on Wall’s dunk over Hulls, but only had a one point lead at halftime. Indiana had a one point lead with 17:30 left in the game at which point UK went on a 18-0 run and eventually talent won out and it ended up being a blowout.

    Regardless of talent disparity, Indiana will make it a game.

    Environment will be crazy. We will run into the same problem as 2 years ago. Our freshman have not played on the road to see anything like what Assembly will be like. Slow start, close at half. Cats run away and win by 20.

    Davis will dominate Zeller. Unless IU goes crazy from the 3 point line this should be a 15 point win.

    This is one of those games that will be close until a few minutes up until the end. With four to five minutes left, Cats pull away and win by 10-15 points.

    They will be amped, but IU has fallen SO FAR from where they were Knight-era… I say close first half but we beat em 12-15. They get 1 prized recruit and think they are ready for the top dog? I understand having hope for improvement, but they are still 5-10 years off of being back to UK/UNC/Kansas status even if they miraculously won. That’s if everything goes right over those 5-10 years!



  43. Kyle

    This one scares me. At IU first real road game for a young team. There will be bad/iffy calls in the first half. I predict Davis and Jones having to sit out most of the 1st with 2 fouls bc of the refs. Will go down to the end and make me extremely nervous. Hopefully the homecooking officiating won’t screw us too bad, I just have this feeling…

    The thing is, this team is showing uncharacteristic maturity. They didn’t quit against UNC when they could have. I’m not sure if we will have the same problems with ego that we’ve had in years past. They didn’t bypass St. John’s, so hopefully Cal won’t let them bypass Indiana.

    The length of our team is gonna disrupt them so bad that we r gonna embarrass them!! I don’t know how many people on here has played any ball, but when u take a team that is as long and athletic as uk it is so hard to even make a normal pass and every single shot gets altered!!! For example Florida looks good and they have two good guards but they will b completely overwhelmed when they play us they will b nonfactors!! This team we have people is very very special this is going to b the year type it, text it, tweet it, whatever you want to do #8 is this year!!!!

    UK in its first true road game should be interesting. The key to the game will be to get an early lead and take crowd out, keep turnovers low. I like the Cats by 10. However, won’t be shocked if IU pulls upset. Love this team!

    I would rather have us win this game than beat NC a hundred times. If you have ever had to work in Indiana and they knew you were from Kentucky you would feel the same way. They are pompous assholes that look down on their southern neighbors. This began way before Knight arrived. I shutter to think of the abuse Teague is going to get.

    Im usually the one who is worried for games….I was really nervous about the St Johns game after seeing them play a few times and we see how that turned out. That being said, I am 100% confident that we’ll kick the crap out of IU. Slow, unathletic, and not even in the same stratosphere as far as talent goes. Vegas says 9? Im usually not a betting man but Ill be willing to roll the dice on that one…

    IU isnt a rival, theyre just some goofy kids in candy stripled pants we kick the dogsh** out of every year…

    IU has been to the NCAAs finals more recently, our coach has been to as many final fours as Cal(will likely lead once Coach Cal’s UK one is vacated) and our athletes are REAL LIVE ACTUAL COLLEGE STUDENTS! On the other hand, you have more McD AA’s and much higher paid players. IU in a squeaker; Jordy and Remy own Teague, just like in HS.

    Root for the school where the athletes ACTUALLY GO TO CLASS! Coach Crean has one final four like Cal, but his is not in danger of being vacated. We have been to the NCAA finals more recently, and Hulls/Remy owned Teague in HS. IU may make the highly paid pUKes sad.

    Indiana has the best player on either team in freshman sensation Cody Zeller. Zeller has every bit the physical gifts that Anthony “Chocolate Nosferatu” Davis has, while being more skilled and possessing a far higher IQ (Davis is rumored to read at a 1st grade level).

    Whenever a team has the clear-cut best player on the court, as Indiana will clearly have in their match-up with Kentucky, they’re always a threat to win the game.

    Besides that, the role players look like a push, and I think it’s clear that Tom Crean is the better coach than John Calipari. The latter, Calipari, can’t even win a championship despite being a well-known cheater, which says a lot about his coaching skills, or lack-thereof.

    Last, but not least, is the fact that Indiana will have the home-court advantage. That’s always a nice bonus, as U.K. fans should know (your one-point home victory over UNC translates into an 8-12 point loss in Chapel Hill).

    Add it all up, and I see Indiana taking it by 15-20 points.

    Prediction:
    Indiana – 91
    Kentucky – 75

    Player of the Game: Cody Zeller, 21 points, 12 rebounds, 2 blocks, 5 steals, 8-9 from the field (no one can guard him)

    On a side-note, a round of applause to Cody “Superstar” Zeller, who’s already won his third Big 10 (best conference in the nation) Freshman of the Week award: “Zeller leads all true freshmen nationally in field goal percentage (67.7) and steals (21). He is fifth in rebounds (60) and eighth at 15.5 points per game.”
