As I spent the month of January bathing in the Super Bowl Bears' performance, I was still following the Hoosiers.
As tough as the Illinois loss was and is (especially with that piece of crap Bruce Weber and his shameless whining), the fact is that this team is really coming together.
Beating Wisconsin was the best example. Coach Sampson alsways says that this team has to play like it has a chip on its shoulder, and I believe him. This is a team that has dispatched the lesser team and has really competed agisnt the good or better teams. What makes me apperhensive is that this team cannot be overconfident playing anyone, be it a lesser team in the Big Ten tournament or in the first round of the NCAAs.
And they must beat Illinois February 10.
