6. 10. 12. Want to know what those numbers signify? The win totals for one of college basketball’s elite programs in 2009, 2010, 2011. Well have no fear Bloomington, the Hoosiers are here. After winning 27 games last season in which they defeated three top five teams at the friendly, or not so friendly (for opponents) confines of Assembly Hall, Tom Crean seems to have brought Indiana basketball all the way back from the dead.
Now I realize most feel like December 10, 2011 was the official reawakening of Indiana Hoosiers basketball. And maybe it was when thousands of students, alumni, and fans rushed the court in a wild scene following a Christian Watford three-pointer at the buzzer to upset the eventual National Champion Kentucky. There really were countless highs for the Hoosiers during a season in which Indiana made the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2008. With a stellar top-ten recruiting class set to arrive in Bloomington this Fall, expectations are high with the five-time National Champion Hoosiers. In my eyes though, yesterday was possibly the second biggest day in the reawakening of Indiana basketball.
Cody Zeller and Christian Watford will both return for the 2012/2013 season. Continue reading

Before I get started, can you remember a better season of football than this one? Yes, we live in a sports world where we all happen to be caught up in the moment at times, but there is no denying the drama and heartbreak that took place in both the regular season and the post-season this year. Just in case you need your memories refreshed as to what happened on Sunday, here you go.
Game 1: Baltimore Ravens at New England Patriots:
It seems as though it’s rare that we see the top two seeds in the conference go at it in the championship game, but the NFL world was in for a treat on Sunday when the Ravens and Patriots clashed in Foxborough. This is one of the rare occurrences where you can legitimately make the argument that the better team didn’t win. With all the pressure on Joe Flacco leading up to the game thanks to comments by Ed Reed, the Baltimore quarterback had a lot of pressure on him. Some were even saying he was playing for his job, and if that was the case, then he indeed won it. Continue reading

Last week it was Matt Schaub who was lost for the season with a foot injury, just when the Texans looked like they were getting it all together. A week later, it’s Jay Cutler who will likely miss the remainder of the regular season with a broken thumb on his throwing hand that will require surgery. This couldn’t come at a worse time for a Bears team who have five straight games and look like a legitimate threat to the Packers. Now, that talk will have to wait, as the Bears turn to Caleb Hanie, and pray he can lead them back to the playoffs.
1. Green Bay Packers (1, won 35-26): 10-0. Next up, the Packers get their biggest test of the season yet: In Detroit, on Thanksgiving. (Next game: at Detroit) Continue reading

It is safe to say that last week was absolutely a wild one in the wide world of sports. The College Football world was turned upside down, while the NFL was highly entertaining as always. College Basketball is back in full force, while the MLB off-season awards were doled out. Plus the NASCAR Sprint for the Cup came to a wild conclusion.
Here are the events to keep an eye on this week. Continue reading
