Indiana is having an impressive season that includes the schools first NCAA tournament win in 33 years. Consider the year a success because it's coming to an end here. Notre Dame is just too deep for the Hoosiers and the Irish have won six straight by double digits.
I'll eat the reasonable chalk here.
