that's unfortunate, but at least the interest is there on both sides
Indiana basketball player Devin Davis is in serious condition after being run over by a car driven by his teammate. Thoughts go out to him and his family.
Temple forward Anthony Lee told ESPN today that he will be transferring to Ohio State. Lee, a 6' 9" power forward, was one of the most sought-after transfers on the market. His finalists included Iowa State, Indiana, Louisville and Notre Dame, although many schools came calling when he announced his transfer from Temple.
Lee was coveted by Indiana with Vonleh going pro. Tom Crean has some great potential players in his backcourt, but Indiana's frontcourt is a cratering hole now with Jeremy Hollowell, Austin Etherington and Luke Fischer transferring this year.
The next big Midwest transfer prospects to look out for is West Virginia sophomore guard Eron Harris who supposedly will consider Michigan among other Big Ten schools, and Virginia Tech freshman forward Trevor Thompson.

Maybe it's a State of Indiana thing? Not to be outdone by terrible ND and Purdue videos, the Indiana Athletic Department has released it's own RAWK MUSIC video highlighting a half empty stadium and a bunch of white kids rapping.
First of all, let us all hold hands for a second and bask in the glory of a 5-0 start....
Okay, now that that's done, I wanted to comment on the amazing time my friends and I had in Bloomington yesterday. Apart from the douchey student section cheering Denard's injury (ARRRRRGH, STILL PISSED), the people at IU were friendly to us. Sure, we got the usual jeers from IU students (if I heard "Ann Arbor is a whore" once, I heard it 100 times), but it was very tame compared to Columbus (assumed) and East Lansing (experienced).
At one point, we were actually welcomed into an IU tailgate, given beer and food, and even invited to kick some IU student ass in flip cup (which we did). To be honest, we were actually treated worse by some MSU fans we ran into IN BLOOMINGTON than we were by any of the IU faithful.
Then, after an amazing tailgate, my friend and I were even further impressed by the maturity of (most of) the IU fans in the general seats. They were courteous and kind, and didn't throw any objects or verbal obscenities our way, even when we were at our "worst" (mostly cheering right behind their head on 3rd downs).
My point here is, the students may be douchey, but the overall fans were very kind and welcoming to opposing fans. I highly recommend a trip to IU in the future to anyone who may be considering going. IU is (mostly) classy. Go Blue!
My homage to this week's game.
I considered "WHERESIER DEFENSE" with a picture of Gerg, but I chose to focus on the positive.
The weather today in Bloomington is supposed to be windy (10 mph) with a 30% chance of rain. IME this will benefit Michigan's defense by limiting the downfield success of Chappel. In turn, this shouldn't affect Michigan's offense the way it will Indiana's.
What does the MGoCommunity think?
