I’ve been an admirer of Indiana University Hoosier basketball since 7th grade. I discovered Bobby Knight and his epic chair throwing during the game against Purdue. I read a couple books on him, watched the uncensored premiere of ESPN’s “A Season on the Brink” and kept a close eye on Texas Tech when he coached.
But…my thoughts and admiration stayed with IU for some reason. Maybe that’s where he started and where I was comfortable as well.
Some years later, I applied to Illinois, got accepted but didn’t attend…but now, I think it’s time…to actually become a fan of Hoosier basketball.
Aside from that, Mark will also be joining me in the basketball festivities this year. We’ll see what we can make out of IU b-ball…wish us luck folks.
