Did Yogi's shot cause a "boo-boo" at Assembly Hall?
Ok. I am an Indiana fan and was excited at the Hoosiers' win over Number 3 Wisconsin at Assembly Hall. It had been a long time coming. But did Yogi Ferrell's 3 pointer cause a "boo-boo" in Bloomington? Some analysts think so. After the win, students stormed the court in Bloomington to celebrate-- and there's the rub...
Some commentators feel the court storming was out of place. They feel it is beneath the Hoosiers' dignity to storm the court over a regular season win over a single-digit ranked team. Others say, why not? Indiana is not on top anymore like it once was. (Wait... should I feel a loss of dignity over that comment?)
Mike Greenberg says you should act like you have been there before-- especially if you are Indiana. Just like many thinking people, I have mixed feelings on the issue. On one hand, the upset wasn't totally unexpected-- IU is probably a NCAA Tournament team on the 6-7 seed line-- but on the other, they hadn't beat Bo Ryan since early 2007. That even predated the Hoosiers' "bad old days" of 2009-11.
Did I agree with the court storming? Not this early in the conference year. Save it for a conference title... after all, it is Indiana we are talking about...
That's my take...I'm Tom Lee
