... spoke to Syracuse media this week about the coming game, and he said he will be cheering for Syracuse (no surprise).
“I’ll be cheering for Syracuse,’’ Patterson said in a telephone interview on Monday. “Absolutely. I don’t like Indiana.’’
That said, Patterson was also pretty pointed about his departure last summer, which ticked Indiana down from 14 scholarships to 13, the maximum allowed limit.
"I feel like they made a bad decision,’’ Patterson said. “I didn’t like it. It was an excuse. They needed to get rid of someone.’’
I'll reserve comment on this, but I felt it should be posted, in the interest of simply addressing it.

Sounds like a case of "SOUR GRAPES,vbg" I don't know Mr. Patterson personally, but I wish him great success wherever he ends up playing. I also find it funny that he is rooting for a school that recently received an OFFICIAL LETTER OF INQUIRY from the NCAA for several years of improper activities on part of the Syracuse Basketball Program ????? It is very ironic he would root for such a program under serious investigation from the NCAA !!! Maybe Mr. Patterson will end up playing for such a program( that is a program that cheats in recruiting and academics just to win basketball games ???) I hope that Mr. Patterson has better character than to play at one of those schools !! As far as IU not accepting him as a student/athlete at Indiana University, NO School is required or bound to any athele it is recruitng until that athlete signs his letter of intent to attend that school !! Furthermore, that school can revoke a scholarship after the athlete signs the letter of intent if it deems it is the best interest of the school !!!!!!!!!!!!! Lastly, there are 346 [approximately] Division one schools that play basketball !! I'm sure a player of Mr. Patterson's reported talent would not have any trouble finding a Division 1 School to give him a scholarship ..????? As it is IU has one of the top 5 rated recruiting classes coming for the 2013-2014 school year !! If IU's current key players all return for 2013-2014, The Hoosiers wil be just fine no matter who Mr. Paterson roots for !!!

I don't blame Buss at all. He got a raw deal, IMO, but I'm glad to see him back on his feet.
How did he get a raw deal? He had his own future with IU in his own hands and he failed to do his part. When you control your own destiny you cannot blame it on someone or something else. It is on you.
