  4. They scored 110 points in spite of 26 or whatever turnovers. This ain't rocket science. Woody isn't the only coach in the locker room or in the office for that matter. I think he'll be ok. Most college coaches bomb in the NBA not the other way around.

  7. Agree to an extent. It's not must win in the true meaning of the phrase. Obviously, IU can still recover with a loss. But, regardless of whether it's December, January or February, this is a home conference game against a team projected to finish in the bottom 3 of the conference. Again, time to recover, but these aren't games you lose if you're expecting to really compete to overachieve in the conference.

  10. None of Brad Davison’s stats should count on the all time list at Wisconsin. He’s been there since 2012 and he’s a tool. sorry, teaching is tough right now. These kids deserve better than what is going on in the world.

  12. Not sure about this. I didn't see Rayce and Trayce on the perimeter last night. Out of the last 70 some points Trayce has scored ...how many of them are from the wing position? They broke the zone, scored against it. There wasn't anything that didn't work. Silly turnovers from playing scared in 1st half.

  13. Bama, UM and OKST all lose. UC moves up to 2 ND slides into 3 and Fickell coaches the CFP against his old team. Seems far fetched but in this world feels about right

  14. I'm going to back up @dgambillright now. Growing up I got a gun every Christmas and birthday, had access to whatever I wanted whenever I wanted. That said, I would not do that if I had kids today. Anyway, Would keep them in my truck and go hunting after school, no problem. Never in my life did I ever consider harming anyone. I can't fathom that. But, whether you believe in God, Jesus, Bhudda, or whatever, there is a moral breakdown in our society that I believe is irreconcilable. Hatred permeates our world. How do we beat it?

  16. No...it could change...it might not go away completely because evil will always exist but it certainly could become a very uncommon thing....but it likely won't...because the answer would require a major shift in the way we live our lives.

  18. When: Saturday, December 4th 12:00 PM EST Where: Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall, Bloomington, Indiana TV: BTN The Huskers are led by Fred Hoiberg in his 3rd season (19-47) at Nebraska. So far, they're 5-2 on the year with a game tonight at NC State as part of the ACC-Big 10 Challenge (7:15 PM EST on ESPNU for those interested), Here are their results so far...All games have been at Nebraska... Opponent Tm Opp Western Illinois L 74 75 Sam Houston State W 74 65 Creighton L 69 77 Idaho State W 78 60 Southern W 82 59 Tennessee State W 79 73 South Dakota W 83 70 5 Star freshman Bryce McGowans leads the team in scoring...They only go 6 or 7 deep...McGowans' brother and a player who normally starts, Trey, is out with a broken foot... Expected starting lineup... Main guy off the bench is Kobe Webster...We've seen him 4 or 5 years ago with Western Illinois, and last year with the Huskers...Good 3 point shooter who will drain them if he gets good looks... They're pretty much consensus bottom 3 in the Big 10 along with Penn State and Minnesota

  19. I think we'll beat them pretty handily...Watched most of their game last night (and I had watched them against Creighton as well)... They don't have any answer for our inside game. Trayce didn't have a spectacular game in our only meeting with them in Lincoln last year (15 pts, 11 rebounds) when we won by 8. Hoiberg is no dummy...He'll double Trayce all night. He did last year and our guards came up big...Al had 17 and Rob had 18...which also says something about their perimeter D...And I'd like to think we have much more reliable perimeter scorers this year... They're very much an ebb and flow team...they can score in bunches, but can also go into droughts...Their only 2 reliable scorers are McGowans and Verge,,,McGowans is a freshman, and Verge's headlong rushes to the basket remind me a bit of Al Durham. Kobe Webster can score, but he's really streaky...if he gets on a roll though... If we play GOOD D, and keep the turnovers down, we should have no problem...

  22. That would be the easiest route. Make Texas and Oklahoma protected rivals. Still think they'll need to add a conference game.

  23. Colgate had 11 turnovers and we had 26. We would have won by at least 14 if we had only committed 11 TO’s.

  26. Has the $EC announced how they are going to realign divisions with Texas and Oklahoma coming on board? Oklahoma going to the SEC likely had something to do with Lincoln Riley taking the USC job, don't you think? Less obstacles out west to get into the playoff.

  27. Exactly my position. I had a conversation with my doctor about " quality of life versus quantity " and I told him that I come down on the quality side every time. It's why I was unwilling to sacrifice time with my grandchildren to protect myself from something that I thought I was overwhelmingly likely to survive. Once again, my personal decision and not a recommendation to others. Someone once said, not sure who, that we live life at our own risk. That's all I want to do.

  30. I was hopeful once I saw the replay showing a knee-knock, rather than an awkward landing, but in live time I saw my 2021-2022 IU basketball season flash before my eyes More importantly I was worried if it would impact his career as he has worked hard, seems like a great kid and has been a fantastic representative of the program. Needless to say…he came back strong.

  33. Even the Syracuse homers were very complimentary of TJD. There was one sequence where Edwards (I think it was) was a little yappy with Trace and then the very next play Trace posterized him to shut him up. The announcers were like “Daaamn.”

  34. I expected Syracuse's effort....I didn't expect our first half "effort" or "execution" or whatever you want to call it. Second half while still spotted with very disappointing turnovers etc if given the whole game would have resulted in us winning that game by a dozen as we were expected to do. Syracuse plays a tough enough schedule and like you said will have some quality wins....it's just a loss that didn't need to happen...and honestly given our experience in the backcourt and front court...we shouldn't be making so many unforced errors. I mean most of the guys on the court for most of the game are 3-4 year players...just came out flat...and didn't focus on the task.

  36. I guess my point is, everyone is disappointed about the loss. But getting beat in double overtime by Syracuse or any reputable program with a hall of fame coach is not a bad loss, especially with a new coach and a new team. TOs can be cleaned up. Defense has been good up until this game. It’s their first real road game, a lot to learn but a lot to be optimistic about too. We have some shooters finally and some leadership.

  37. You hold on to that optimism. I appreciate that. But it has ceased to live within me after many years. As Pogo said long ago, "We have met the enemy and he is us."

  38. I don't think hate crime laws should even exist. A violent crime is a crime regardless of the motivation. Hate crime laws are too ambiguous and allow for human emotion to enter the equation.

  39. The World Wide Web is full of perfidious information from all directions. Which is why I personally prefer to research as much information possible before I make a decision. To understand completely IMO, is to study the entire circumference rather than half.

  40. If I'm remembering this correctly... We were down 11 with under 4 minutes, and 6 with under 30 seconds and sent the game to OT We were down 2 with under a minute in OT and had a chance to win on the last possession. We were down 4 with under 30 seconds in double OT and tied the game. I'm disappointed we lost, but that is the most telling takeaway about this team from last night IMO.

  41. Yeah, I think they will wait for Fickell and if he turns them down, then they have to go after Freeman. I would think that Matt Campbell is the third option. Fickell has said before that OSU and ND are the only 2 jobs he would leave Cincy for. Does them making the CFP and potential National Championship game make him reconsider though is the question. You've got to believe ND has people in contact with Fickell or his people to make sure he still wants the job before they decide to wait it out for him. I don't think they would want to lose out on Freeman by waiting for Fickell if he isnt going to take the job.

  42. It'll be Fickell or Freeman. Fickell even has an opt out in his contract just for ND. I think he might be the guy but I wouldn't be surprised if it's Freeman with all the support he's getting.

  43. They are both extremely important to their teams. Which of these 2 then separates themselves from the competition based on stats and strength of schedule at some point. Gonzaga playing in a weak conference year after year with power6 level talent isn't as impressive to me. Would they be undefeated playing in the ACC or B1G for 20 games. Very unlikely. Would they be good. Probably but not as dominant and would just be another good Power6 team. Would Chet be the dominate figure he is playing in a big conference seeing the level a talent day after day? Maybe, maybe not

  45. In this day, any gun owner with kids should keep them locked in a safe. If the parent wants to carry then maintain possession. With all the options for safe storage no reason to not lock them up.
