You have to be a long time reader of this blog to know I’m an Indiana University alum (School of Music for those scoring at home). Indiana has always been a basketball school, but we’ve gone through a long dry spell.

I’m old, so I was there for Bob Knight’s last national championship. I was at the final game (in the worst nose bleed seats possible) when Keith Smart hit the shot to beat Syracuse in ‘87.

But the past few years there hasn’t been much to cheer about. Last year the hope began, and suddenly this year Indiana is the real deal again.

Tonight’s win against Michigan State was huge. We haven’t won at Michigan State in ages. The team is fun to watch, and coach Crean has done a fantastic job pulling the program back to national prominence.

And I can be a college basketball fan again. Life is good.
