Amy and I had the good fortune (thanks to my parents and Lee and Helen Butler) to sit courtside as IU crushed Chicago State in Bloomington on December 29.
The Hoosiers are looking really good against the cupcakes. However, much as Kelvin Sampson might want to deny it, I think that this schedule is going to wind up hurting us. It's given us some practice in running an offense (as opposed to the constant 1x1 that we've seen against real teams) but I am worried about our first test on the road against a Big 10 contender.
Luckily, we get to start off at Iowa and Michigan; it couldn't get much easier (although it's NEVER easy on the Big 10 on the road!). I enjoyed watching Iowa struggle against Southeastern Louisiana; I predict that we will see a different Hawkeye team show up tomorrow.
