The most intense rivalry in the Big Ten has its 199th chapter tonight.
Greetings live from Mackey Arena tonight. Though I often sell games to you readers for face value, the Indiana game is one I am always sure to attend. I can't stay away when the hated Hoosiers come to town, so I'll be tweeting away and screaming myself hoarse in section 103.
One thing I have asked for is for A.J. Hammons to knock Cody Zeller flat on his ass on a turn tot he basket and then power dunk to establish dominance. I don't even care if he gets called for the foul our not (he probably will). That is the type of message he needs to send.
Let's do this!
