    I have no problem with this anniversary celebration dealio.

    Milk that '79 accomplishment for all it's worth.

    And doing so against an MVC team that was in the Final Four one season prior, on national tv...excellent!

    Maybe Larry will appear. Maybe not. All the social media happenings leading up to the event sound pretty cool too.

    I mean, I guess ISU could just do nothing about this 40th anniversary. But I prefer the "doing something" take on it.

    The sad part is we didn't milk it enough when we had the chance due to administrative incompetence. Landini even admitted as much.

    What happened to the program? "You seize the day, and we did not," said Richard Landini, president of Indiana State. "We did not build upon that reputation, that extraordinary three years of Bird. It was a combination of inexperience, a lack of vision at the time."

    I think the idea of tweeting all of the big events of the season as if Twitter existed back then is a unique touch. I know not everyone is on it, but for those who are it will be a nice build up to the game/reunion itself.

    Assuming that's true, then I'd say: Hodges AND Bird...this is getting to be pretty freakin' great!

    Glad to hear Larry and Coach Hodges are coming. How cool would it be to get Magic to come. That would create quite a buzz. The 40th anniversary is a big deal and if we hadn't planned something, people would be bitching about that. Plus, none of these guys are getting any younger. It's fair to say some might not be around in another 10 years.

    For sure, obviously no ones getting any younger, but hope for the 50th they get a reunion game with Sparty.

    40th Anniversary Celebration For 1979 Final Four Team Set For January 19



    TERRE HAUTE, Ind. -- It's hard to believe but this upcoming Indiana State Basketball season marks the 40th anniversary of when the Sycamores went 33-1 and became the last Missouri Valley Conference team to qualify for the NCAA Championship Game when they went on to face Michigan State in "The Game That Changed The Game."

    If State does not have an anniversary apparel line planned with Under Armor, they are really missing out on a big opportunity.

    If I'm not mistaken, we were with Nike when the 20 year hit and there was a Michigan State/Indiana State throwback line available at places like Champs that included throwback powder blue jerseys, shorts and a couple shirts. I know because I bought all of it and wore it religiously playing pickup in the arena and outdoor at Wolfe Field.

    Those were my favorite State shorts ever as they had a huge Sycamore patch sewn on the leg and they were super comfortable. I think I may have cried when the logo faded and I had to toss them. Just for reference, here is what the set looked like:
