There's A New Sheriff In Town

And that Sheriff is the Indiana Hoosiers. Sure, we here at GDB (at least Porque, Cicero, and I) pimp IU on a regular basis, but now it's time to get serious. After Michigan State was upset 43-36 yesterday by lowly Iowa (they tied their low point total in school history), the Hoosiers have moved into the driver's seat in the Big 10. Now I know a lot of haters like to point out how the Big 10 is weak this year...but they say that every year. And Every year, the Big 10 has 2 teams in the Sweet Sixteen. The point is, Indiana has been playing great basketball lately, albeit against weak competition. When IU hosts Illinois today, Eric Gordon is going to make them cry like babies and wish that they had been grimier in trying to keep him. Indiana has a tough stretch coming up starting on January 26 when they host UConn, and from there they go to Wisconsin, Illinois, Ohio State, and then host MSU and Wisconsin in a 2 and a half week span. If IU can get through that gauntlet with 2 losses or less they are well on their way to a top 3 seed in the NCAA tournament. Book it baby.
