Graves buries SIU

The headline was so obvious that I can't believe no one used it. Check out the video on this page. About halfway through, they finally show the amazing 35 footer AJ Graves nailed to beat the buzzer. That's a serious big boy shot.

Demond mocks my love for Butler, but we grew up 5 minutes from Hinkle and our dad used to take us to Butler games. We'd sit near the court, and he'd heckle the officials. I always pull hard for the Bulldogs, but Demond still holds an IU based grudge because of some random badly officiated game like 7 years ago. Well, screw you man! GO BUTLER.

Demond Sanders: That game was last year, not 7 years ago, and it was a joke. I generally like Butler, but this latest incarnation gets on my nerves a little. Now that they have respect from the national media their small school schtick is wearing thin. Also, I am firmly against sports bigamy. I have one team in each major sport and that's it. Colts, Pacers, Reds, Hoosiers, Fever, and Thrashers.

I think the biggest stretch of this entry is saying you have only one team in the "major sports" and then listing both the Fever and the Thrashers. Major, indeed.

Tongue was planted firmly in cheek on that one.

What's up boys. Love the blog. I was a manager at IU from 94-98 and I must say that as a fan of basketball, especially basketball in Indiana, you have to love what Butler is doing. I find them much more enjoyable to watch than IU. They succeed on fundamental play and the continuity of good players playing together for more than a year or two. They have a great system and they stick to it. I sometimes wonder why Lickleiter decided to go to Iowa.
