HB - Being a Hoosier, I feel the slam directly at me.... and what can I say....
Only 5 championships, 1 Olympic Gold Medal, 1 Pan Am Gold Medal, 3 NIT Championships, More Soccer Championships than any other college, 3rd best in the nation with Basketball chamionships one of the best winning records in basketball for over a quarter of a century, a football program tied for the most national championships, a professional team that played for a championship last year, and a professonial football team definitely moving in the right direction.....
Some days the dogs bite you, some days you bite the dogs....
I will gladly take one rough weekend in exchange for a small backwoods state that has such a rich sporting history without the advantages of 3, 4, or even more decades of professional sports.

Lighten up kay?... How am I supposed to know you're from IU??....This was little jab at JL80 who knows I had NC St. and Oakland on parlays..... Promise you this Russ, if I was going to take a jab at you, I would do it direct and name you in my post!!!
And as for my backwards State.... well I'll take it anyday of the week .... you don't find many people saving up to vacation in the midwest, now do you?????

HB - No harm no foul. I didn't take it seriously, just giving you a little more information.
Yes, hawaii is a nice place to visit. But I have lost my ledger on your sporting teams. Give me a little background on the last championship game for the University of Hawaii or something similar to.

Sorry, with the exception of small school B-ball and mens and womens volleyball we can't compete with the great IU.

HB - If I came off a little strong on the posts, I apologize.
I merely saw a little smack and gave it back.
I am very proud of my heritage (why does that sound funny coming from a white guy?) and willing to defend it in a moment. I guess it sounded more serious when read.

I'll throw down with a slight mention that Hawaii does have MUCH better surfers.
btw How many points do I need to give you on the IU / U-M game this year? (Go Blue!)
09-10-2000, 06:43 PM
Kyle, If it is anything like the past couple of decades, at least 25 points.
The Hoosier football chant:
IU Football - It's ummmm, uhhh, well, ummm, oh yeah - it's pretty cool to watch if you are bored.

Good to see another Hoosier hanging around here...Take no offense from the Hawaiian fella, he is just kicking me in the ribs while I am down...I can't blame him cause that opportunity rarely comes around...

JL - Chuck is another frequent poster from Indiana.
HB is right, it was a bad weekend, except for the fact that an unranked Hoosier team showed the supposed best in the Big12 that they are not top ranked material as they took them to the wire.
