    Whenever I hear the phrase “going out in a blaze of glory” I think of TLew’s flex at the end of that OSU game

    It was a meaningless game. The game the next day was going to end up cancelled anyways, so we were not even playing for our tournament lives.

    Everything great and terrible about Terrence Lewis all at once. The win expectation model is absolutely hilarious over those last 15 seconds...

    upload_2020-5-28_21-15-13.png

    OSU @ 73.7% before the dunk
    OSU @ 31.0% after the dunk
    OSU @ 78.2% after the made shot

    It looks like a seismograph picking up an 8.0 at the end there.

    ...then kaput.

    I will never forget that preposterous sequence. I cannot remember many more hotly contested of games that were ultimately about absolutely nothing.

    Probably shorter than Smiths list as a grad transfer and we're right in the thick of it

    It means nothing now, however....IF we could have won that game, we could have laid claim to being defending Big XII tourney champions for another year. Hard to do that when our last game played was a loss. :-(

    I actually didn’t know that, and I consider them a bottom feeder.

    Linking an 8 year old article from Bleacher Report is a bold move

    Indiana is a blue blood like UCLA is. Both have a great history, but recent history has been pretty 'meh'.

    i agree with this. Never said IU was killing it now. Hopefully will reclaim status in the future, but outside of the Oladipo/Zeller/Ferrell teams, they have been a disappointment

    I absolutely agree with this. But at some point an average to mediocre recent history catches up with you as the people who remember the glory days die off.

    I think most people 20 years ago would’ve considered Nebraska a CFB blue blood, and you can argue they still have a blue blood fan base and financial backing. But they’re reaching the point where recruits and younger fans only remember them as an average to decent program rather than a national power. They have a great history, but their brand has diminished significantly. I can argue Indiana basketball is going down the same path.

    UCLA Basketball is the tough one for me. Their recent history has been mediocre, but they still own the most dominant stretch in CBB history that no one will probably ever come close to.

    I'm surprised the rap video made by the Indiana students didn't get posted.

    Nothing like some dorky kids rapping about things that happened before they were born.

    I am almost 30 and Indiana hasn't really been relevant in basketball in my life time. At some point it's just another team and just another gym.

    When are we gonna hear more info on his recruitment? I’m seeing a lot of Illinois and Purdue but no ISU. What is it with B1G transfers and staying in conference?

    That was such an appropriate way to put a bow on T-Lew's ISU career. It just perfectly summarized the entire journey. Flash of excellence ultimately shadowed by cloud of atrociousness
