In this state, we are inundated with basketball. Mostly IU, Purdue and high school. The Pacers suck.
Last night's Big Ten showdown between IU and Purdue has some major implications for the conference race and bragging rights. Since IU won and Purdue lost, it moved the pair into a three-way tie with Wisconsin atop the conference standings. And since it was the only time IU-Purdue meet in the regular season, the Hoosiers also gained some bragging rights.
The game broadcast in stunning high-definition on ESPN. You see lots of things you wouldn't on standard definition. It's easier to pick out people in the crowds, read tattoos on players, and of course, compare coaches to quasi-celebrities.
