Good for Crean that he’s fighting for his players. But you’d have to be blind a deaf to not recognize VO as player of the week after his performance against MSU.

Could be a dagger in the back of the Big10 Conference tomorrow night. Hope we get a few twists out of that dagger also. IMO, this is the game. Do we have the ability to flip the kill switch in league play?

Yes Larry, someone once said something to the effect of, “One’s greatest risk of failure is immediately following one’s greatest success.” I worry that IU might be a bit relaxed after the huge win at MSU. But my instinct tells me that this IU team has matured a lot this season and they now have the finish line is site. Plus, they’ve had a week to prepare, get healthy and get re-focused. That does not mean they can’t lose this game, but its a lot better than if they had just won a big game on Saturday.
