We know that the Indiana Hoosiers have a rival in Purdue. That’s their main bloodfeud. But the IU series with the Illini has seen a lot of emotional moments as well. You had Eric Gordon going Judas on Bruce Weber at the last possible moment, to defect to Kelvin Sampson and the Hoosiers. Gordon was one-and-done to the NBA anyway, but Illini fans still seethe.
And the shooting guard was right to leave when he did, as Sampson destroyed the Hoosiers program. From Tyler Griffey’s buzzer beater lay-in (which set off a court-storming at the real Assembly Hall) to Nick Anderson’s buzzer beater at the other/second Assembly Hall, to the Hoosiers storming the court in 2010 as the Illini were their first ranked victim in three years, this series has had it’s moments.
The Hoosiers are tied all time with the Illini at 84 wins apiece. The Illini are 5-1 versus IU in the Big Ten Tournament, but also 0-3 versus the tourney’s top seed; which happens to be IU. Illinois beat the Hoosiers February 7th...

Indiana guard Victor Oladipo is arguably the best player in college basketball this season. Whatever the case, I think we can all agree he's the most exciting player in college basketball this season, because he regularly does amazing things like this:
A 360 dunk (that he made look easy) in the Big 10 Tournament... not bad. Oladipo (who also put...
College baseball gets underway as the Penn State Nittany Lions take on the Indiana Hoosiers. Indiana is the preseason favorite to win the conference and pundits give the Hoosiers an early nod to make their 3rd NCAA Tournament appearance in school history. But that is a long, long way down the road and Indiana will need to make sure that the talent they have performs. The Hoosiers...

I love this time of year. March Madness is in full effect and I certainly have the, umm… “madness”. I, personally, cannot get enough of it. But what makes this time of year even more compelling from a sports fan’s point of view is the emergence of spring football. I, for one, am the type of sports fan that can’t digest enough on my favorite team, in any sport. Here at...
Victor Oladipo can flat out get up.

Indiana went on to win, 80-64.
