Fired Bill Carmody: Chance to run it up on the Hoosiers

Chance to run it up on the Hoosiers

despite a torturous history against IU (three wins in 59 games from 1971 to 1003) the Wildcats have actually won three out of the last games at Welsh-Ryan against Indiana. despite the history of these two programs and despite the respect NU has yet to earn this season, NU has no business losing this game at home.

this Indiana team is not good. by this point we're all familiar with their lack of returning and/or scholarship players, and their season has gone about as expected. at 5-13 / 0-6, their worst loss was at home to Lipscomb. their only wins were at home over Northwestern State, IUPUI, Cornell, and TCU, plus a squeaker @ D-II Chaminade. the Hoosiers rank last in the conference in scoring offense, field goals and three point shooting, so i would like to think Northwestern's defense will do the job tonight and they won't get killed on the boards.

Indiana has lost their last two road games by 31 and 24 and the 'cats are a 12 point favorite, so let's hope they can take care of business in front of a decent crowd. (i will assume that Indiana's down year will keep the usual invasion of red shirts to a minimum.) this game features a small chance of the rare double whitewash, so keep an eye out for an NU lineup of Moore, Coble, Mirkovic, Peljusic and ShurnaRyan against Pritchard, Moore, Taber, Roth, and Finkelmeier.

i'm not whining at all. i said "have yet to earn," as in they haven't done enough to deserve respect yet. two upset wins do not make a season. let's see them build on last week and then we can start talking.
