I'll look back at the George Mason game later today.
Boilers beat Hoosiers to bring Bucket home (The Journal Gazette, Fort Wayne, Ind.)
"It was a big win for us. I’ll be able to go back to Evansville and live comfortably during the break," said Elliott, who threw for 205 yards and four touchdowns in his first starting role against the Hoosiers. "I won’t have anybody giving me a hassle – because I always get Christmas cards, birthday cards saying, ‘Go Hoosiers.’ "
What we learned in the Big Ten: Week 12 (ESPN)

"Coach Bill Lynch should bear much of the blame for a 4-8 season, which could have been more like 7-5. His passion shouldn't be confused with expertise. Watching him race up and down the sidelines and waving his fist like a man possessed doesn't impress me. Who's making the decisions while he's acting more like a ranting cheerleader than a coach?"
Bucket game is as much about the future as it is the present(The Indianapolis Star)
"And yet, it wouldn't surprise me if we're here one year from now -- certainly two years from now -- and both of these teams are playing the Bucket game with eyes on bowl berths." I'm sorry to say that it would surprise me.
Crean still confident after 0-3 trip (The Indianapolis Star)
"There was a ton to learn from this tournament,'' Crean said. "There's disappointment, no question about that, but I hope the fans and the university and everybody stays with me on this and that's that there's no reason to be discouraged. We're going to get a lot better."

"People have a tendency to have short memories (with last year's 6-25 record)," Dakich said. "But as a former player and a former coach, I know what was left when Tom (Crean) got there, and I think he's going to do a great job. But it's going to take a little time."
