Indiana hoards much of the available talent in this matchup, as the lowly Chattanoogits will have to prop up their egos to stay competitive.
However, if these Chattanooga animals wants to pull off the upset, it will be with a 24 hour fast. The Mocs return four senior starters, with three sales majors in the bunch. This persuasive bunch should have no problem convincing Indiana of a reason to starve themselves leading up to gametime.
Omar Wattad and Ricky Taylor are two of the best players in the Southern Conference, but the hickish culture shock could leave them squirreling for excuses. This famous effect is known as the "Tractor Factor".
A devestating one game losing streak would cripple the enthusiasm in Indiana. Look for the Hoosiers to propel to the Promised land upon notions of cautious optimism alone.
