    Long time lurker, but I figured this would be a worthy first post. My friend Braedon, who I graduated IU with in 2010, recently had a stroke at 31 years old and may need brain surgery. He's a huge IU bball fan- had season tickets with him for all 4 years at IU. Braedon was always the one getting us to games in the down years of the Crean era- he is truly a Hoosier through and through. It just really saddens me to see this happen to such an infinitely positive and passionate person. Long story short, his dad had some major health issues as well, and Braedon has had to take over the family farm in Columbus, IN. It's just Braedon and his dad- no siblings or anything to help out. Sounds like his insurance situation isn't great, and he's already been in the hospital for 2 weeks in Indy. Anything you could donate will help- thanks guys! Braedon's Go Fund Me

    I've heard you can get what is called a "repulsive concussion" from being around Purdue fans too much.

    Ready to go can mean different things to different people. Last night, in bed, I told the wife I was 'ready to go'. She got up, left the room for a few minutes, and came back with a suitcase and told me to leave.

    He's a better coach than Alford...gets more from his available talent, but then a lot of D1 coaches do...

    Here's the scouting report on Michigan. The number of possession may determine if Indiana has a chance. Instead of playing with Michigan up and down the court, Indiana should take a page from Northwestern and Penn State (who battled reasonably closely with Michigan) and slow down the pace. I've got full trust in Archie if we can keep it within 2-4 possessions until the last 2 minutes. Indiana has the opportunity to define their season on Sunday.

    I have said it before and I will say it again....Purdue does not bother me in the slightest. Now UK does.

    ^^ Hating ND over UK? You must have a personal reason! There are very few programs I actually hate. If I consider it honestly, Wisconsin is probably the only program I "hate." I CANNOT STAND that program or their idiot-fest fans. I enjoy the IU-PU rivalry, though it's not been much of one for a while -- they're still our in-state rivals. I am basically disgusted with UK and it's brain-dead, schizophrenic fans who tout Calipari while ignoring all that he left in his wake, and his fear of playing at IU, lol. I'm equally (or maybe more) disgusted with UNC for its DECADES of fake classes and its aww shucks coach who claims ignorance of same. Illinois to me is basically irrelevant at this point. Who really cares about Illinois basketball? Worst for me though is the NCAA itself, see UNC.

    I am guessing it was probably about 1997? But IU rolled into Ann Arbor to face a dang fine Wolverine team that had Maceo Baston, Tractor Traylor, and a guy named Bullock. I am pretty sure that IU was down about 20 at the half. And the Wolves expanded on that to start the 2nd. 20+. Then pure magic happened, the Hoosiers caught fire and Michigan froze like an ice cube. The game went into OT, and we won. I might have the year wrong but I remember that happening. I started out sipping beer, then pounding beers because we were getting our butts kicked, and then pounding beers in excitement. Late Sunday afternoon game.....I called in sick the next morning!

    Here's the thing... We are REALLY good on defense and we have two players who can get points almost whenever they want. That's why we are winning close games, it isn't a fluke and it isn't likely to stop. I know we all want to force it through Romeo and Juwan every possession, but it isn't going to happen and frankly isn't a good starategy. We need others to feel involved because it does lead to more engaged defense and we need others to continue to improve. We are utilizing Romeo and Juwan as little as possible and as much as necessary.

    Here is the translation, as best I can determine. Ignas Brazdeikis and the Michigan Wolverines will be playing the Indiana Hoosiers on Sunday in Ann Arbor. Ignas and his teammates live in great fear of the Hoosiers, who are led by Romeo Langford and Juwan Morgan. A physical game should be expected. "We must give them concussions if we expect to win:, Ignas is quoted as saying.

    Here is what the newspaper in Ignas' home town in Lithuania has to say about the game. Ignas Brazdeikis ir Mičigano Wolverines bus žaisti Indiana Hoosiers sekmadienį Ann Arbor. Ignas ir jo komandos gyvena labai baimės Hoosiers, kurie vadovavo Romeo Langford ir Juwan Morgan. Fizinis žaidimas turėtų būti tikimasi. "Turime suteikti jiems concussions jei mes tikimės laimėti :, Ignas yra cituojamas kaip sakydamas. Rodyti originalą

    Thank you, and no nothing to indicate anything out of the ordinary as far as marks on my head. All I can say is take these concussions very seriously. I about died.

    I don't think announcers should make the statement that a player is "ready to go" if the doctors are saying otherwise.
