Over the weekend the Indiana Hoosiers beat number 1 Michigan in Bloomington. Legendary Head coach Bob Knight is Indiana Basketball and the Fab Five is Michigan basketball. Well, when you say these two schools as college basketball programs Knight and the Fab Five are the first thoughts that come up.
Knight has made in clear in the past that he thought the Fab Five was bad for college basketball. While Knight was working the ESPN broadcast of the Arkansas- Alabama game he made the following comments about the Fab Five.
“I’m not sure what the Fab Five was,” said Knight. “They never won anything.
“They never won a championship, they didn’t get anywhere, they got beat.”
“Fab indicates, to me, that you’ve won something,” Knight added. “I’ve never been able to understand what ‘Fab’ was. It wasn’t championships, I always knew that.”
To a point I agree with Knight about the championships, but I don’t think they were bad for college basketball. Michigan lost to North Carolina in the 1

Yeah he didn’t make the dunk but Indiana’s Victor Oladipo may have had the most amazing miss I’ve ever seen. With about 7:50 left in the second half against Michigan, Oladipo was fed a lob that went behind which all but made the highlight as the junior almost put down what would have been the [...]

Indiana beat No. 1 Michigan in a rare game that actually lived up to its high expectations. The Hoosiers should be the nation's top team again but the Wolverines aren't far behind.
Michigan’s guard were caught napping instead of boxing out Cody Zeller on multiple occasions during Satuday’s matchup with then No. 1 Michigan. Zeller collected two offensive rebounds and threw them both right back into the net. Will Indiana be the new No.1 when polls come out Monday?
