Tell Us How You Really Feel, Coach Weber…Posted by rtmsf on June 20th, 2008
Could it be that Illinois coach Bruce Weber is still a little miffed about Indiana committing grand larceny ripping a player from his cold dead hands procuring Eric Gordon from his Muppet Show grasp last season? We’re just wondering, maybe the guy is still a little bitter? From Boiled Sports today (Bruce Weber speaking):
The league should be wide open and we can be right in the middle of it. I do know one thing, though. Indiana will suck. Don’t put that on the Internet.

Of course, he’s absolutely right. Indiana will suck. Achieving .500 next season would with the talent they’ll have on hand would be an achievement that would catapult the name Crean into embarrassingly hushed conversations about Wooden, Lombardi and Bryant. But that won’t happen. As bad as the Big Ten is, the rest of that conference will mightily enjoy its territorial pissings all over the Hoosiers.
But in a couple more years, who knows? We’re not sure that Weber really wanted to rile up the Indiana faithful any more than he already does. Of course, with his recruiting woes in recent years, he’ll be back in the MVC by then anyway.
