IU Fans Prepare For Weber

They say revenge is a dish best served cold, whatever that means. For IU fans today, it will be a chance to show Illinois coach Bruce Weber what they think of him. Sure, they'll boo, but student groups want to go beyond that.

One group wants students to dress like babies and taunt Weber, a reference to what they feel was his whining when recruit Eric Gordon rejected the Illini for Indiana. Another group wants to bring baby rattles, bibs, pacifiers, bonnets and other baby ware.

Meanwhile, IU students plan to dress like coach Kelvin Sampson, which means a blue shirt and red tie and kakhi pants.

Will it work? The Hoosiers, after all, lost at Illinois last month. One thing is sure, it certainly won't hurt.
