How 'bout those Hoosiers! (But I missed the game, I'm sorry to say.)
The report from Sports Illustrated. What a game!

I went to high school in Northern Indiana and since there is no place to shop here in Michigan, we actually do all our shopping in Indiana. I've lived in Michigan all my life, but I know a LOT more about Indiana and am more of a Hoosier than a Michigander.
That said, I'm not into sports and wow Midwesterners in general love their sports!
My family is into sports and are Notre Dame fans.
I like Notre Dame too - except when they are playing any of my other favorite teams in any sport . That said, though, I'm basically lukewarm about most sports - but an Indiana-Kentucky rivalry is something else!
One of my Facebook friends, in her comment on the game, wrote "In 49 states it's just basketball . . . but this is INDIANA!!"
I've never seen any place quite as wild about basketball, especially college and (even more!) high school basketball.
Someone posted this on Facebook. It's a good example of Hoosier Hysteria - well, it should be; it's video from the winning shot in Saturday's game.

So true! We have Kentucky roots too. And we also have North Carolina roots - so college basketball seasons can be a real quandary, some years !! I'm usually happy if one of the three wins, preferably wherever I'm living at the time .
I got a chuckle out of the score posted on the TV video in the linked YouTube video. Whoever was updating the score mistakenly gave the three points to Kentucky (on the TV banner), showing the final score as KY 75 - IU 70! instead of KY 72 - IU 73!

There are a lot of sports now but not all of them have time slots in ESPN. Of course Basketball and Football need their airtime, but I think some sports should have less airtime (like baseball and soccer) and some should have more airtime (like beach volleyball). What do you all...

I was talking about this once with a classmate of mine back in high school. A little over a decade ago I believe, and he said that WNBA players are inferior to the NBA players, and that's why he'll never watch the WNBA. Personally, I highly disagree with this statement, as I always...
