There will be no putting lipstick on this pig if our guys do not win this one. Mason never lost to IU in the Dome.

IU is also a better program now than when Mason was coaching - outside of Randle El, their roster is better top to bottom than in the late 90's to early 2000's. But I do agree, this is a needed victory or I could see the Big Ten schedule spiraling out of control.

On a spin standard of 1 to 10, that one Carl, is about a 7.

"outside of Randle El their roster is better top to bottom..."

Is it really that they are so much better or we are so much worse? The loser of this game will be much favored to finish last in the Big Ten.

Hey Marcus, The last big ten for the gophs was not michigan state... it was Iowa in the dome which sent us to Arizona... Come on now.. you should be able to get this right... It is your job after all.

Both - but at least I got you to admit in an article a couple weeks ago that Mason's recruiting his last 2-3 seasons was poor and that is why our roster has only sprinkles of upperclassmen who see the field - regardless of who you want to blame for that (Maturi, admin, alumni - certainly you wouldn't blame Mason for shooting someone if you saw him pull the trigger). We still should beat Indiana tomorrow with our roster of freshmen and sophomores, but the Indiana program today is in a much better place than it was 10 years ago.

Carl, just stick to the truth. 10 juniors. 6 seniors. One true freshman starting out of the 24 starters.

I could not care less about Mason if I tried. What I do care about was all the lying that went into firing the man. Remember how the borders were going to be shut down? How about how there was no reason why we should fall to the bottom of the Big Ten? My personal favorite was the 'no more late game meltdowns'. I've got 22 more if you would like me to list them for you.

Perhaps it would be a good thing for me to do if we don't win tommorrow.

How many of the Juniors are junior college transfers? Stick to the truth.

A junior is a junior.

Carl, it is your philosophy, not mine, that makes gods or demons out of coaches. Mason and Brewster both have smelly poo poo.

I thought you knew about our win. Odd.
