    Looks like Crean’s rant worked

  • Podunker says:

    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.

  • Larry says:

    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?

  • Podunker says:

    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.
