IU Looks To Roll Against Minnesota

Kelvin Sampson was a little grumpy today (let's just say he's not a fan of the TV show "24"), but hey, when you've got a slump to fix and Big Ten opportunity to achieve, maybe grumpiness comes with the coaching territory.

Anyway, IU hosts Minnesota tomorrow night and the Hoosiers absolutely have to win to control their conference destiny. They will. They had a good practice Monday (D.J. White was especially sharp) and will be ready to run their home record to 14-0 this season.

The Gophers seem unlikely to do anything about it. They are 9-18 for a reason, and it's not because they have all-world talent. They are directed by interim coach Jim Molinari, a veteran guy who really has no chance for success. Not this season. Not with this group. So look for IU to roll.
