I was perusing my twitter, as I am wont to do 20 to 22 hours a day, and I noticed that #IUday was trending. Is that our IU, I wondered? And what the hell is it, exactly? Intrigued, I clicked the link.

It is real. Today is the second annual #IUday, and it’s for the kids. More specifically, a way to get the kids some money for college.
I went over to the website, and there were some things specific to the Indiana Hoosiers, like everything you want to know about Assembly Hall. This Buckeye fan hasn’t cared about it since Bobby Knight stopped roaming the court, but I did learn that it was renamed in 2015 to Simon Skodt Assembly Hall. I am sure some fans of the B1G are screaming at their phones right now, “GET WITH THE TIMES!”
It’s funny that you should mention that, because I do love being stuck in the past. What says the past more than good old fashioned Rock and Roll! And a mullet. But right now we are talking about Rock and Roll. The most interesting video I found was one of their professors giving his top 5 rock albums of all time. Apparently he has been teaching a Rock and Roll class since 1982, back when the national treasure, AKA Dan Dakich was a member of the team.
So today’s lesson, kiddoes, is that there is a #IUday, it’s a way to help the kids, and much more importantly, a starter for the argument of greatest Rock Albums of all time. The professor’s were different than mine. I’ll give you mine, since mine are the best.
