Stick with the round ball

So Indiana gets clobbered by Oklahoma State tonight in the Insight Bowl, 49-33, proving that the football team still has a ways to go before loyal Hoosier fans pay attention once basketball season starts. The game appears not to have been even that close; the Hoosiers outscored the Cowboys 16-7 in the 4th quarter to make it look a little more respectable.

That’s what happens when you offer a bowl invite a 7-5 team — with more than half its wins against Indiana State (0-11), Akron (4-8), Western Michigan (5-7), and Minnesota (1-11).

Let’s hope Missouri and Illinois, the other states where I’ve lived most of my life, show more in their bowl games this week.
