  3. I was headed to UT/Texas AM to propose during the game... Covid altered that plan.. when I got the news I drove to her house on Tues and did it right then. Still surreal and we are obviously incredibly happy, we announced the news last night on FB.. so I wanted to let you guys know as well... she said YES!

  4. Further to Blue’s post, a friend of the family has asked that we let everyone know that Eric - Colonial Crester was out at dinner last night with his wife, and the friend of the family, and had the heart attack. He was taken to the hospital but passed away that evening. His friend added, thoughtfully, how much this site and community have meant to Eric. We think he would like all of you to know that and that he appreciated and enjoyed all of you.

  5. Over the past 12 hours I have tried to stay out of this thread just skimming through it. For the most part I try to be a realist and also am an optimistic person in general. Maybe I am just naive or gullible not sure. Right up until the last moment the Ketchup kid went down south I held hope because of info that I was getting from 1 particular person. Nothing cryptic very matter of the fact info. He is the person that told me we were getting Arman, Rob, Duncomb, TJD and has only missed on the one guy. I really listen to his stuff and then pass it along. Maybe he just does not know but 20 minut

  6. CC was the lifeblood if this board. There were times back in the day that I was considering leaving this forum. He reached out to me and was a friend, support and sounding board. He always had, or made time... I propose that the Animal House’s name be changed... Crester’s Corner maybe

  8. My only hope tomorrow is that either way the kid chooses is that people realize he’s a kid. There are some nasty fans from both schools and he doesn’t (nor any recruit) deserve any crap from the fans that he doesn’t choose.

  9. Quotes I found from his show Miller: "Khristian... people forget he graduated early at 17 yrs old... getting better. Learning how to play harder, more physically." He notes how different the game is for Lander from HS to college. Also said he hit 4 3's in the scrimmage from 'multiple feet out'. #iub Miller: "Jordan... he is probably the most talented guy I have recruited in a long time." Noted he is still learning and developing a well-rounded game. Also talked about his ability to guard multiple positions. #iubb Miller: "Trey... ball dominant, very shifty with the drive... ma

  10. 2020 we all need some levity but man i think we are a little classier than that. I know you didn’t mean it to harm but we all were 17 once...it wasn’t easy going through puberty and be the butt of someone’s joke. The world could definitely do with a little more kindness. Truth is truth but the good book says we should deliver it with love (kindness). I say things I regret...not saying you should remove it but man we are talking about a kid here.

  12. This has been a f#%&ed up year. LEO is a message that should resonate across the country and not be limited to IU football. Allen is such an inspiration. I don’t know how a parent could turn down the message that Coach conveys. I don’t know how a kid could not want to be a part of what CTA is building. Guess I am a little pie in the sky but I gotta believe that IU football is gonna be a force, both on the field but also for the quality of young men being developed under the leadership of our coaches

  13. Lander reclass Duncomb committed and signed TK to PU MM to creighton aminu here in January if the dots connect could be a lot worse. Galloway and Geronimo have the tools to be all time fan faves. Give them time.

  14. It's with a heavy heart that I post here now after receiving the news from Milehi today. I knew him less than he, but knew enough to say he was a good soul taken from us too soon... and if I could make 2020 become 2021 with the snap of my finger, we would all be rid of this wretched year. I've lost my job, two people close to my family, my grandmother and I have my step-father who is now dealing with his third bout of cancer... the news of Eric takes no backseat to these. His impact to us is insignificant when compared to what he meant to his family and loved ones, but is not insignificant on

  17. So incredibly sad to read that CC has passed. We are all Hoosier fans, and Colonial Crester was one of the great ones. Moreover, as a mod in another corner of Hoosier fandom, I constantly saw the reflection of CC's grace, intelligence, humor, and judgment in the way he posted and moderated this board. As we know, life is precious--love up your family and then love them up some more every day, and be thankful for all of our blessings and lives well-lived. RIP CC.

  18. Yeah and he strung it out for 2 weeks so he could put on this silly show. 2 weeks of time wasted by the Indiana staff so he could have his big announcement. Listen, everyone here, the Indiana kids are great when we get them, but some of them really use the Indiana fanbase to salt their ego. Again, no one on the national stage is acting like OMG Purdue got a big 4* recruit. We need to stop acting this way for the in state kids. We will cheer you along through your career and all of that, but these silly, over the top announcements suck in general, and they really suck if they are for a kid

  19. A lot of good comments in this thread so far...I had just a couple of thoughts... Hunter I thought looked great. His defense was much improved and that will get him more minutes. Confident stroke, and a couple of nice inside fade aways. Loved the play and enthusiasm of all 4 freshmen, but Lander is going to be special. He has that innate ability to know what the proper basketball play is. He'll be a great facilitator for us. Like to see him shoot better and get a little stronger for the defensive end, but I was impressed. Galloway is going to be one of those kids that other fan

  20. Heck of an effort from you guys. Didn’t fold after being down 35-7 and made it a game. Moral victories aren’t always fun but if I was an IU fan, I’d be pretty proud today.

  22. I'm sick and tired of losing to purdue twice and finishing around .500 in the B1G and comparing buddle resumes with pac 10 teams. So yes I'd like 3 5 star guys to join the team whenever they want. I'm so confused.

  24. The top 2021 in-state player is already in Bloomington. The staff was never that high on Furst, so they targeted Duncomb because he's a better player, and got him. Kaufman was a miss, but still have Mason Miller and Aminu Mohammed out there.

  25. Ok, sometimes I get the impression people just look for the negative and then pull up a box score to look for what they think they can critique. Complaints about shooting? Let’s see, Hunter and Rob both looked great - not just ok, they looked great shooting. Hunter was 4-6 overall (showing a strong inside game including a hook shot) and 1-2 from deep, and Rob hit 2-3 from deep and 5-8 FG’s. The team low outside percentage came because Al didn’t shoot well tonight (1-5) - and we know he shot 38 percent from last year so hello he can shoot, and Lander, in his first college game and

  26. Archie took Dayton to the Elite 8 with a bunch of 2 and 3 stars. But it took him a few years to get his system in. Patience gentlemen, a few missed recruits is not the end of the world.

When a group of individuals is more worried about the success of the team and not themselves.. goodness.. great things can be accomplished. Immediately gave thanks to his OL. Powerful.

  31. Just, wow. I had the pleasure to meet Eric a few times, and he was always full of great energy and loved life. I’m so stunned and upset by this, such a great guy and can’t thank him enough for the HSN boards. This one really hurts, board won’t be the same without him! If any information is found out about the service or help with funds, please let me know! Eric and Natty took me to my first IU football game and tailgate. I will never forget that and how much fun that was. We had a random drunk college chick come up to us and started eating our nachos with us lol. Also took

  33. I think that Rabby and Peegs got a certain feeling when Trey talked about IU. I heard Rabby on JMV choose his words wisely and I think its more to allow TK to have his moment. I could be completely wrong but there could have been an inadvertent slip. Regardless IU has done enough and if Trey feels its best for him then Friday will be a great day for all of us. Not heard 1 thing that makes me think Trey to PU rumor has any legs. Still love where we stand

  34. I'm curious...how do you intend to influence the majority of the fan base to put pressure on Archie, when you appear to be having a very difficult time convincing a few guys on a message board?

  36. Didn't surprise me -- as I've posted here a couple of times, in his case I do have a truly legit inside guy -- my friend who scouted Vic, at the same age at DeMatha, and Geronimo, and says that Geronimo is better than Vic at the same age -- and he was extremely high on Vic and correctly projected how good he would be at IU. I'm telling you guys, this kid is really good and he has the exceptional wing length, athleticism, defensive instincts and development, body, and drive to be really, really good.

  37. Not the end of the world. But anybody that ignores the fact we just lost two recruits,that we have spent a ton of energy, on is simply blindly optimistic. IU worked hard on two recruits and lost them Purdue and Creighton. Maybe good reasons (playing time etc), but still can not be purely blown off as "oh well". I am not down on recruiting as a whole, but these do sting a little.

  40. I understand people's desire for excellence and holding IU basketball up to its own high standards and even a desire for a good show of basketball to distract us from a difficult year etc... I didn't watch this evening so I don't have any opinion on the content of Hoosier Hysteria this year... That being said, I wonder what has happened to our fanbase that we are so grouchy about everything. Everything the program does is criticized ad nauseam. A simple introduction to the members of the team that was posted on the internet turns into a grouch fest...The program puts out a two minut

  42. We are funny. If I'm creighton, I'm over there like man, IU really has a big opening at MM position now that TK chose choo choo trains. AND he's visiting on his own dime this week. AND making a decision. Sounds like game over for us. IU fans translation. We suck. Archie sucks. Ostrom sucks. Will never land a recruit ever again. Only visiting on his own dime because he has to for some unknown reason.

  44. Galloway is going to surprise a ton of people. A ton of people. Jerome is back to almost where he was pre-injury with his confidence which is huge! Leal is being reported as a 3pt sniper, never stops shooting, total gym rat. Geronimo has more upside than anyone on the team, Oladipo athleticism and speed with OG strength and height. Folks, IU is going to be pretty damn good. Notice I didn’t even mention their best players who by all reports have improved a ton. TJD will be shooting 3s this year Id off season workouts are any indication. I’ve been off since Tuesday with a positive Covid r

  46. I think we all have had a moment similar to this from him. I hope I say this right...his personality lives on this board. There is a kindness and level of respect and sincerity that is rare on the internet. The job he and others have done to make this a welcoming and fun place to trade ideas and talk IU sports can’t be minimized. This is the best place to talk sports and have a good laugh I’ve come across. The way people treat one another was the reason I chose to join this board after lurking for so long. It’s spirit is unlike any other. I pray for his family and all those that are personally

  47. I probably should post this in a different thread because it's not specific to Trey Kauffman, this is a general point that potentially applies to Kauffman, but I'm so sick of these clearly 4 position players being sold by people that they need to play the 2/3 in college for the NBA. That's just so wrong IMO and actually hinders their chances of making the NBA. The NBA is going smaller, not taller. In the NBA 2's/3's are playing the 4. 3's and 4's are often times playing the 5. The NBA is not looking for 4's to play shooting guard. They're looking for guys like Kauffman and Justin Smith t

  48. If this plays out as indicated I'll reiterate what I said yesterday. He's Trey Lyles, Gary Harris, Josh McRoberts, AJ Hammons to me...won't cheer or support the kid again. Not only does he heave his long running AAU mates holding the bag he's heading to an arch rival. Sorry....doesn't get much worse. Edit-And if Trey chooses IU. Disregard everything I've said.

  49. This has been a tough year for obvious reasons, but what most people don’t realize the full scope is what CC and CCG meant to these forums. Without CC there is no move from Scout in the way we did for the length it was. He was every bit as generous and easy to work with as any mod/owner I have had the pleasure to work with. He truly was one of the good ones. Rest easy my friend, and watch out for Gary on the way up.
