Indiana Promotes Itself with UK Players

BlJgNdwCYAAsgji

Would you like to go to Indiana’s Journalism School? Well you should at least think about it…while we at KSR showcase that you can have a successful career in journalism with no training, little skill and many grammar errors, there is still something to be said for a journalism degree (it ranks with Philosophy degrees in terms of marketability). Indiana is one of the better Journalism schools in this great land of ours and thus they are promoting their status to the world. But how do they do it? Well not with pictures of Victor Oladipo, Christian Watford popcorn boxes or the player allegedly known as “Big Handsome.” No, Indiana wants you to go to their school by letting you know that you MIGHT get to interview John Wall. Yes, if one attends Indiana’s Journalism School a life of excitement awaits as you hope beyond hope that Kentucky will reignite their series with the Hoosiers and you may be in the presence of UK greatness.

If Indiana didn’t exist to continuously make us laugh, then we would probably have to create them…

    Did IU hang a banner for getting that John Wall interview?

      Indiana trolls too. The Indian trolls are probably smarter than the Indiana trolls.

    Pictures of that IU student interviewing John Wall will be on popcorn boxes next year in Assembly Hall. They will also hang a banner. If IU want … Well , so IU… This would be sad. Instead, because it’s the Loosiers, it’s comical.

      Of course this makes sense – we only made it the National Championship game – totally horrible post season. And of course, had we won the National Championship, Matt Jones would have never thought of posting this…not noteworthy mentioning that Indiana is in fact advertising itself with UK celebrities…

    There are journalism students at IU…they don’t remember.
    The journalism students have journalism professors. They don’t remember.
    The journalism professors have parents… they remember when IU was relevant!

    You wrote “Big Handsome.”. It should be ‘”Big Handsome”.’ In that part of the sentence. Nice try, Mr. Grammar Police Officer.

    Too funny. Matt Jones, that has to be one of THE best burns of Indiana I have ever heard. Oh man. They really are that bad. When you sit and think of the dumbest and dorkiest things a school could do it would be hard to top what they have done. And only they could do just that. They topped something as dumb as cutting down nets after a loss and Sweet 16 rings with putting a picture of a rival schools player on any kind of school literature. Yeah, it was for their school of journalism, but Indiana’s “front porch” is their basketball program. They walked right into it and you skinned ’em.

    I asked Mr. Wall if he liked his education at UK and he asked me what I meant, so I moved on to whether or not he liked the decor in that house he broke into.

    Serioulsy, the University of Kentucky is one of the lowest ranked academic “national” college institutions. You literally have one academic program that garners any national respect. IU’s undergrad business school was ranked ahead of Harvard last year and tied with another Indiana school – Notre Dame – at #10.

    Continue to dress up your personal hopes and dreams around 18-22 year old young men playing a game. It has done wonders for the state so far.

    The state of Indiana will continue to have IU, Purdue, Butler, and Notre Dame actually turn their graduates into high-functioning members of society (when IU needs to renovate Assembly Hall they can call ONE alumnus, not rely on taxpayers to foot the bill), not droves of zealots whose self esteem is derived from a game that they don’t play. We will also continue to host the Super Bowl, and do whatever it takes to keep the NBA and NFL in our state.

    Signed,

    Indiana (or for most of you “boss”)

    This is the funniest thing I’ve seen today. 🙂 The second funniest is the IU/UL trolls in thread. Resorting to the Vanderbilt defense (i.e. we’re better at being nerds). Comedic gold.
