I am just realizing, fifteen minutes before we play Northwestern, that the Mike Davis era of IU basketball has almost sapped my last bit of enthusiasm for the game. Used to be that a game was a big deal for me, I'd look forward to it for a couple of days, plan my evening around it, and enjoy watching a team win or lose playing its own style of basketball, a definable style, and one that I could feel proud of.
Now, even when they're winning, I'm usually bored. Our offense is so boring to watch, and out defense is not even really defense, and I dunno. I'm tired of it all.
Oh, I'm still going to watch tonight, don't get me wrong. I'm just saying that if Mike Davis's tenure at IU comes down to a vote and it's close and there is some wacky tie breaker where they have to call me at home and ask me whether he stays or goes, I might say "goes."
