You gotta be extra careful putting up something like that. We're talking about declaring a national championship. I know people will scream it's soccer, but Indiana actually cares about it. They are even better at soccer than basketball, even if they lose in crushing fashion

You can't have clear diehard fans who are showing up to Assembly Hall to watch the match on a big screen walk away with that. Then again, you're Indiana. This is what they've come to be. Celebrate regular seasons.
