As an IU fan, Sampson and Greenspan need to go

This is an absolute shame, that the University I love and have a degree from could be realing from facing Major Violations due to Kelvin Sampson being an absolute dumbass. The time is now to send him, and Athletic Director Rick Greenspan packing.

Ever since Bob Knight left, IU has been in a tail spin, first the uber dumbass hiring of Mike Davis by NCAA dimwit Myles Brand, and keeping him for six years as well. Then Greenspan hired Sampson, knowing all the baggage that was brought in. Ridiculous.

Sampson's trademark defense isn't there, and the offense lacks much beyond a one-on-one show, to let Eric Gordon do his thing. Gordon would be better suited to get the ball in his hands and make things happen, not shoot an array of 30 footers.

But, it has come to this. Major Violations, MAJOR! All because Sampson is a dumb shit. This is not what IU or the Big Ten needs which will be facing it's lowest post season tourney bids in a long time. It's time to clean house, and bring back the respectability that has been lost with IU for a long time now.

To us Colts fans, that was almost as good as last year

Don't get me wrong, nothing is better than winning a Super Bowl. SkinDog, Floyd, and I have all witnessed our favorite teams win one in our lifetime, as did Trip with the Bears but he was probably 3 or 4, which means he didn't remember much of it, or any at all. But last night when everything was said and done, and the evil empire was beaten, it was an amazing feeling.

Everyone has there team that is despised the most, whether it be the Cubs, Yankees, Cowboys, Duke basketball, and the Patriots. The Patriots tends to be my most hated rival.

While last year I was happy and jubilient the Colts won, but something was more right this year. I didn't hate the Bears, there isn't much to hate about Lovie Smith and company, I just basically wanted a Colts victory. This year was different, the Pats are hated, hated for good reasons. The cheating, and smugness of the quarterback and coach. The clam headed Red "Sachs" fans and nature of the beast that is New England, it's easy to hate them.

Overall, there is a pep in my step today. It's not the same as winning a Super Bowl, but for some reason, it feels pretty damn good.
