Indiana put on one of the best shooting performances of the season Thursday night in an 89-70 win over Maryland. In fact, the offensive outburst led Eric Michael to think the Hoosiers may have taken a page out of Bill Belichick’s playbook, winning our Fan Tweet of the Night in blowout fashion:

It all makes sense now. The only way Indiana could shoot 60 percent from the floor and 68 percent from beyond the arc is by jumping on the #DeflateGate bandwagon. Something tells me Yogi Ferrell won’t hold a press conference tomorrow denying illegal ball handling because he’s been an ankle-breaking baller since the day he was born. Kid can shoot too.
As for tonight, hats off to Eric for unearthing the truth behind the conspiracy that has all of us snickering. Stay tuned to FanRag Sports for all your “Big Balls Pete” vs. “Deflated Balls Belichick” coverage on Super Bowl Sunday.
