Fired Bill Carmody: Here comes the sea of red

Here comes the sea of red

big headline on nusports.com today: FAN ADVISORY FOR SATURDAY NIGHT'S GAME. apparently NU is worried not only about the invasion of Hoosier Fan but also the media crush that will result of today's expected announcement that IU's aussie president will throw out Sampson. and what an interesting ride it continues to be for Dan Dakich. six years ago he turns down the WVU job to stay at Bowling Green, where he proceeds to kinda suck and then resigns a year ago. he latches on with IU as Dir of Basketball Ops last summer, gets bumped up to assistant when some of Sampson's cronies are thrown out, and now Dakich is about to be handed the keys to his alma mater's top 15 team playing its best ball of the season. not a bad place to end up.

meanwhile, what does this all mean for the 'cats? not much, i'm afraid. no matter what distractions this mess will provide for Indiana, i don't see them slipping up enough to do anything other than beat us down tomorrow, especially the way DJ White is playing inside. and it is unfortunate if we get blown out, since the highlights will be one of the lead stories tomorrow night. but at least this time we'll be losing to a legit IU team - unlike '99 when we were done in by a banked three-pointer by the guy on the left.

UPDATE: maybe Northwestern has a chance to beat Indiana after all. a roster without all their best players doesn't seem so scary. at this point, i don't care what bizarre circumstances help us get a win.

No such luck. Apparently they are all showing up, in body if not in spirit. And in order to beat the Cats, that should be more than enough.

That's probably for the best. Better to lose by 30 to their good players than to lose by 10 to their scrubs.
