    I have no idea what that’s even supposed to mean….
    But to be fair we have some pretty stupid t-shirts as well.

    Well, technically, the did win the Big 10, right? I guess they were the champs of something…

    Champion Mouth Kissers. I showed that pic to my bro-in-law, also to his 15 & 13 year old sons. All 3 promptly vomited.

    I’m actually giving them a pass on this one. They did win the Big10 regular season championship outright, their first outright one in 20 years. I know we’ve made plenty of SEC championship shirts over the years. I love banging on IU with the best of em, but this isn’t worth making fun of.

    They must have found a box of tshirts from 1987 they had in the back. How sweet!

    Who did Tom Crean threaten to kiss to get those made?

    The dedication and the passion that this team has is why they are “Champs.” That is the only championship I care about right now. To know that this team has more heart and desire to play than any team in that tournament is really ALL THAT MATTERS> We are the Champs and that is the bottom line people. This program remains the most storied and successful program of all time..FACT. We don’t have to win every year to be considered “Champs.” Look at our history. LOOK AT IT!! We are the gold standard folks. #goldstandard #tradition #greatestever

    Can’t follow up that #1 ranking without a 2-3…

    Ah, well. I’m sure Boeheim would have laughed at that.

    Oh Crean, you are such a pathetic wimp – Cutting down the nets after a loss with no one left in the stands – You blew it this year and screaming at your assistant coach on camera is classic chump – Sad
    state of affairs – Enjoy the big bucks for celebrating marginal success-
    Go Cats!

    In Indiana’s eyes those shirts are legit. They’re celebrating being Co-Champs of the Dayton Division of the East Region of the bracket. Rings have been ordered.

    Was Syracuse in town? Or maybe Ohio State? Michigan, perhaps? Could you also buy nets to go with that T-shirt?

    LMAO…That’ll just give me a little more to needle my die hard IU fans friends with…..They are such darlings when they do stupid stuff like that!

    So desperate to be relevant that they could not part with those premature shirts by sending them to a third world country.

    I commissioned the athletic department to begin the process of making a series of “Champs” gear. In our minds, we believe that we should have WON IT ALL this year and we still believe that. Just because we lost, doesn’t mean we weren’t the better team. Remember that, folks.

    I quess the asst. at Michigan is getting the last laugh on Tom. One shows he’s an a### and the other shows he’s a coach.

    Next shirt: “Temple let us win because they knew we were #1! CHAMPS!”

    I can’t decide if IU is like the ultra nerd I want to make fun of, or a mentally chanllenged kid who I feel sorry for and want to help out.

    IU’s mens soccer team won the national title this year. That’s probably what they meant.

    This is the most pathetic thing I’ve ever seen. Sure, we make SEC championship t shirts…however, THEY ACTUALLY SAY SEC CHAMPIONS, not just champs. This IU crap is unreal, y’all will NEVER reach the entitlement that UK has. Win a damn championship and then you can make a shirt. We hang banners for final fours and Titles, not sweet sixteens

    November 2012 – I was looking forward to the UK-IU-UL triangle to dominate college basketball this season. We fell short, UL performed, but Crean & the IU merchandising crew made me give up on IU for yet another decade. Tom C., you make actually me miss Knight as IU coach.

    They would’ve been champs if Syracuse did not play that illegal zone!!!

    Be careful about teasing IU about a tee-shirt. Afterall, you are selling UK Spring Football game t’s on your website. We talking about a practice game. A practice game!!

    Champs of what? The round of 32? Will they have a ring and net cutting ceremony for the sweet 16 for 2 years in a row?

    @35 – At least people want to come to our practice game. Does anyone in Indiana know the name of the football coach? Hell does anyone in the world know that? GO BIG BLUE!!

    I love that this site is only talking about making fun of better teams than them (this year), football, and women’s basketball. It’s amazing how far the champs have fallen!

    Number 50,,,,yep,,but they make themselves such easy targets. Been reading quotes from IU fans all year about how the NCAA was just a formality and how they should just send the trophy to Bloomington. Their fan base is plain awful and their coach is worse so as far as I am concerned ,,,,they are fair game.
