I've lived in Illinois and Indiana, and sorry dude...but if Indiana is "hillbilly" then so is Illinois. Aside from downtown Chicago it's pretty much the exact same freaking state.
Secondly, please show us a source for your "imminent" ban information....because I AM well informed and I haven't heard squat about any sort of ban.
You sound like a whiny little baby.
If you've lived in both states then you know for a fact that Indiana is a state of hillbillies. Otherwise you are just making things up.

I don't have to prove anything to you, especially when the NCAA will prove my point by making publicly making their ruling in December. I know people and apparently you don't, and don't want to know. Happy Sanctions little guy! Deal with it!

All you IU haters are disillusioned. It must suck to know that your team is terrible and couldnt beat a team of cripples in wheel chairs. IU will do great things this year, your team will suck as always.

It feels good to know we have so many hating a-holes out there. IU must be doing something right.

FWIW:

I got some info about the Big 10 Network and the cable/satellite issue yesterday from someone who works for IU and supposedly knows what the disagreement is about.
According to my source, the Big 10 wanted the cable companies to carry the BTN as part of the regular package not a premium package. Some cable companies would not agree and wanted to charge extra for it; neither side will budge. There is also a wrench in the works because one cable company in central Indiana is buying out another one.

Again, this is info that I cannot verify but it would explain the problem.

It's good to be a Hoosier fan.

Considering the fact that Illinois, Florida & Duke are the winningest teams in college basketball over the last four years, the answer to your question would be yes. Illinois is now the benchmark for greatness in the Big Ten.

IU can't do much when their hands and feet are tied by the NCAA, now can they? You can feel good all you want about winning a few games against cup cakes, but the fact is that your coach, team and school is nothing but a bunch of cheaters.

What kind of tune will you be singing when your almighty Hoosiers can't play in the NCAA tournament or the Big Ten tournament? You'll probably spin it and whine that everyone is jealous and picking on your program.

hahahhahahhah

wishful thinking and sour grapes. sh*t in one hand wish in the other. you'll get what you deserve. if the ncaa was going to impose a post season ban, they would have already.

keep crying you little b**ch. it will only make you more bitter, hopefully lead to your suicide, when IU has great success this year.

The sanctions are coming and you can't stop them. IU's cheating ways will overshadow ever single game this year and as long as your crooked institution keeps the cheater at the helm.

It's not wishful thinking either, as I've discussed the matter with several people in power, and it is clear the NCAA is going to make an example of IU.

Don't commit suicide when the season is shot because of the NCAA's sanctions. You don't think they will take the matter seriously? Read the report when committed the infractions at OU, the tone was set then, and cheater boy has done wore out his welcome.

Its nice to know the Loosier fans are catching up down there in hillbilly country. Just about everyone else has known the information that you just posted since July or August when this dispute first came to light. Try reading a newspaper every once in a while instead of your comic books.

Nip>>>>I keep reading that everyone is upset about the Big Ten Network, why not just get it? For me, a Hoosier who moved south, it is awesome. So.....49 states are stoked, one is unhappy.
I get it with no extra charge on Dish. Still have cable? Time to ebay the VCR and join the new century.
Jeremy, when can I get my couch back?
