Indy Pete - Go Blue

I can remember it well.  It was January 2013, when we were 16-0 with a team that made it to the natty.  That is <6 years ago.  We had Trey Burke, national POY as our point guard.  Certainly you remember that team?!

Not quite, but it's been more recent than that!

When M was 15-0 that season they were ranked 2nd behind Duke, won on a Wednesday over Nebraska to go to 16-0 but they lost at OSU on that Sunday (by three on that rim out three by Trey).  They dropped to #5 the following week but climbed up to #1 (in the AP poll) two weeks later at 19-1 after some other teams lost one or two more times.

Then #1 M played at #3 IU and lost and that's the last time M was #1.

Kansas and Duke are good - but I think we are better.  Virginia a distant 4th.  Nevada and Gonzaga - head out west to your mediocre conferences, and we'll see you in March.

NET has it right.  Through early December, we have had the best start and are playing the best basketball in the country.

Go Blue!!!
