OT: Alternative State Motto

This is funny. A couple of suggestions for Indiana: "Like Illinois, but not broke (or corrupt)" "A slightly upscale Kentucky" "We don't know where 'Hoosier' comes from either" We're not sure what time it is

The Indianapolis Star's Michael Pointer talks to some Purdue and Butler fans who, predictably, denigrate Hoosier nation. Best "Say what?" quote: "Jon Brothers, an accountant from Brownsburg and a Purdue graduate, said he perceives fans of the Hoosiers — including some he considers friends — as arrogant. "Three or four years ago, when we were on top and trying to get back there, I don’t remember many conversations where I was rubbing it in and sticking it to them," Brothers said. "It’s definitely is not a two-way street. ... They (IU fans) are just as loud and outgoing as they were when they won those championships under (Bob) Knight."" He doesn't remember... well, he's unique then. What else can you say to that?

Luke Winn SI Power Ranking

+

Luke Winn tries to find a complex relationship between the number of passes or type of passes and IU's offensive efficiency. What he overlooks is obvious - IU's starting five. If you look at the first 10 offensive possessions of the first and second halves - IU scored on 15 of 20 of them. At the end of those two hyper efficient periods the play by play starts to mention bench players and the turnovers and missed shots increase. No offense (pun intended) to the bench players but they simply could not maintain the insanely effective rate that the starters delivered. All 5 starters on the court, focused and fresh at the same time were scary good

The Big Handsome named Big Ten Player of the Week

Cody Zeller was named Big Ten Player of the week but shares the honor with MSU point guard Keith Appling. I think it would have been great if he shared it with Victor Oladipo instead.
