Happy thoughts.

The Lexington Herald-Leader talks about the "basketball triangle," noting that from 1976 through 1987, Indiana, Kentucky, and Louisville won six of twelve NCAA titles. I don't really care if UK and UL are any good, but I sure liked this line:
"Gillispie and Sampson definitely have their programs at the forefront of basketball fans' minds," says [Rivals recruiting guru Jerry] Meyer. "I actually think that Indiana and Kentucky are at a point where a lot of prospects want to go there, and the biggest challenge is taking commitments from the right players."
Has that ever been the case for IU? Maybe during the first half of the Knight era.
