Kevin Wilson is in his first year as the Hoosiers head coach and he is trying to change the losing culture at Indiana. Since spring practice has started, Wilson has been vocal about his team’s toughness and consistency not being up to his expectations. Well, after Tuesday’s practice, Wilson said that his team had one of its best practices of the spring and said it was because of one person, Lil Wayne.
Wilson wondered if it was because Lil Wayne was about to perform next door at Assembly Hall on Tuesday night. In fact, Wilson threatened to pop up on the stage, smoke and pay homage to the Grammy Award winner and his “I am Still Music” tour.
“I think he was in my wedding,” Wilson said.
Asked to pick his favorite Lil Wayne song, Wilson said he didn’t know any.
“But my daughter does,” he said.
Funny story, but Wilson is going to need more than Lil Wayne to turn the Hoosiers into winners.
