Can't wait for the sequel to this one, documenting our unpresidented Sweet 16 repeat season and all the stories that followed. What an amazing ride, don't think it gets any better. All the nets get cut down, steamy Coach Crean kisses, & putting Calismarmi his place on NBA draft day!

I loved this book. I've probably ready it 3 or 4 times already. This book captures my excitement as I watched my beloved hoosiers come back to national prominence. How many teams can say they made the Sweet 16? Haha...I guess 16 teams can say that. But still...this is Indiana basketball we are talking about.

I was in attendance when Christian hit that shot that beat those mercenaries. In fact, if the camera was zoomed out just a bit more, you would be able to see me flipping the bird and spitting out expletives at the mildcats (what can I say, it was a heated game).

This book looks great right next to my commemorative popcorn box. Now if only I can somehow get this signed by Will, Cody, and CTC.

I am sad that this book did not discuss Coach Tom Crean's (CTC) illegal contact with Gary Harris during the off-season. I am also saddened that the book did not address IU's illegal recruiting relationahip with A-HOPE and Indiana Elite.

I really enjoyed this book. Not a very long read but, a great conversation starter among fellow IU Alumni. Has a permanent spot on my coffee table.
