Hey everyone.

Today's my birthday. IU has to stop the bleeding at home against a B1G bottom-feeder. Rutgers is coming off a quick two-day turnaround from a snow-delayed home game where they lost by 20 to Sparty. Hopefully these forces will all combine for a much-needed victory for the Hoosiers today in Assembly Hall. Here's the essential info for today's game:

Who? Rutgers Scarlet Knights (10-12, #178 KenPom) v. Indiana Hoosiers (15-6 #49 KenPom)

When? 3:15 PM, Big Ten Network

Vegas? INDIANA -13.5 (up from -11.5 yesterday)

Pomeroy? INDIANA by 13, 90% chance of Indiana victory

By the way, if you're a student with season tickets for this one, don't blow this one off - SHOW UP AND BE LOUD. We saw how fired up the crowd was for Maryland. And it's Saturday afternoon so what else are you doing? You'll miss not having access to those cheap tickets after you graduate. Trust me.

Go Hoosiers.
