Hoosiers WILL NOT finish last in the Big Ten

We all know how completely depleted our past coach has left the Hoosier Basketball Team. But we have more than hope for next year. We have this year. No, I am not predicting a surprise win in the Big ten Tourney (but wouldn't that make a great movie?) but I absolutely do not believe these talented young men and a dynamic coach will finsh dead last.  I believe that tradition and great coaching and higher expectations will allow this team to develop rapidly and win enough games to keep them out of the Big ten cellar.  These young kids, when given playing time, will develop quickly. By mid-season, they will be more like sophomores.  I joke about the Big Ten Tourney, but think about the noise they could make, with no expectations and all their yourthful exhuberance....they could upset some teams.  I'm in nthe investment business, they say Buy quality when its low...BUY IU.  There are too many overworked sports journalists out there that are only paying attention to the top 3 teams in the Big Ten.  They are not doing their homework. Things will be fun to watch if we keep realistic expectations.  Indiana will turn some heads and make some opposing coaches furious, because they were supposed to cream the crimson this year...and they just might not. Go Hoosiers!

How not to be Ozymandias- humility for one...

I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: `Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor  well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed.
And on the pedestal these words appear --
"My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.'

Instead of taking our time to boast of our school's sports programs or our greatest nation, we need to take time to build the inside components that make that machine produce consistently excellent outcomes. What are those inner components? Character, self-discipline, hard work, patience, goodness, humility and a drive to be excellent.  THis is as much a reminder for me as it is a warning. Re-read that poen again and let it sink in.

"but let him who boasts boast of this, that he understands and knows Me, that I am the LORD who exercises lovingkindness, justice and righteousness on earth; for I delight in these things," declares the LORD." Jeremiah 9:24
