  6. On Nov 2, 2020 we lost CC and then on December 17th 2020 we lost Milehi. So many times when I am on this board I am reminded of these men that helped shape a forum that we dearly love. In the past year every holiday or special event has been a first for their loved ones without them. As we are in the Holiday season I just wanted to bring both of these men back to the front page and to remember them. Both of these guys invited my family to visit them if we ever got our West and they both made sure to check in and to see how Ayden was and how I was doing. I am saddened that I never got to meet either in person. I miss them but feel their spirit here each and everyday. To CC and MILEHI we miss you and thank you for all that you did to make HSN the amazing place that we love.

  7. I just share what I am told. Not trying to lead people along. Isn't that what message boards are for? If he goes to Bama, so be it. I'll continue to share what is told to me. A lot of it comes from players on the team. We will know this afternoon. I still have hope.

  10. On Friday I was still hearing good things. Stayed away from all non family things until Sunday night. I was as shocked as everyone once I checked a few messages. I text a friend that confirmed NC was gone. We coukd not have been in a better position to land him. Like others have said almost every thing I hear from outbid state recruits are from people close to Indiana basketball. In state multiple outlets for info. Hate to lose him but I won't stop posting what I hear and I always say what I think at that moment. If it changes so be it.

  11. I don’t often get inside info (which is to say, pretty much never) but I do have a solid source on this and just talked with him, it will be Jordy in this recruiting coordinator role. Stakes are low here since it’s not a recruit so I don’t feel the risk of being skewered if wrong but 99.9% take it to the bank on Hulls returning

  13. Or we could just stop testing people who aren't sick, but that makes too much sense and threatens the bureaucracies Covid has created and enabled.

  15. Liked these two items from The Daily Hoosier's article “Power forward, stretch-four, you know I’ll do anything to win,” he told The Daily Hoosier. “It doesn’t matter what position.” And... Xavier Johnson, Race Thompson and Trey Galloway were Reneau’s main player hosts during his official visit over the weekend. I'm gonna guess Trey or Race drove

  16. It's good to meet everyone here that loves college hoops like I do and I've been following Indiana a lot more lately since we have family there and I would love nothing more than some sort of way to move them to that area. Primarily because it's a cradle of basketball and so close to so many teams. But also because of how I've gradually become a bigger and bigger fan of IU basketball over the last couple years. This post will be kinda long but I felt compelled to share my story here because I've been incredibly depressed lately esp with the season winding down and feeling like it's hopeless to be able to properly move forward in life and get my family to Indiana. When I was 2 years old, I fell from a 2nd-story window and hit my head and developed epileptic and subsequent spectrum disorder symptoms, causing me to convulse while fully conscious and a feeling of needing to constantly be moving and pacing in order to not move my arms so much. I was made fun of in school for doing my best to control my convulsions and the teachers could tell that something was odd, though my first grade teacher did not understand well and frequently would embarrass me in front of the class while I was trying to control my movements and not distract the fellow students. I have suffered from problematic epilepsy since 2008 when I began to develop memory issues and a loss of the ability to use language and math for minutes on end and then developed severe epilepsy in 2012 with serious loss of consciousness and major seizures with full convulsions and the condition continues to become more and more troublesome. Constant seizures are a way of life and as such I am not properly able to provide for my family and overcoming these episodes has proven incredibly difficult, but I am very fortunate in that I have had some amazing support through these last several years. As I became increasingly saddened by my struggles, I decided to reach out to those who help me get through my day and relax, focusing my thoughts on something constant that can ground me and make my episodes less frequent. The sports world, particularly college basketball has been that constant that keeps me calm when other things can’t. To my amazement, after I began writing to the schools and created a twitter handle, I started to get jerseys in the mail…it was a magical, overwhelming show of compassion that brings tears to my eyes just thinking about it. Even though I still don't have an IU jersey yet, I want to thank you dearly from the bottom of my heart, I am eternally grateful to your program and fanbase, and I would love to keep this rolling and gain an even greater ability to connect with people who face the struggles of epilepsy. After I started to receive jerseys, it gave me an idea. The outpouring of kindness from these schools is nothing short of a miracle for me. To date, I have received 269 of the 357 D1 jerseys, now 75% of the way there. I am attempting to unite all of college basketball to raise awareness for epilepsy and what these schools do for so many who are fighting through it, especially in terms of research and students who move on to help individuals with epilepsy try to live a better life, or in some cases they constantly save people’s lives on a daily basis. It has been wonderful to see this idea come to fruition and completing this collection is going to help so many others to learn that their struggles can be overcome with the help of the efforts of these schools. Ultimately, as I receive the remaining jerseys and gain enough financial ability, my goal is to be able to move my family to Indiana and go to games in the area since there are so many close by. Sharing stories, meeting other people impacted by epilepsy, helping them stay positive, and being courtside at games all over the place (you never know where I might pop up ;-). Especially at IU & Assembly Hall, one of the most important cradles of college basketball I want to help people not be afraid, and to educate other people that aren’t impacted by epilepsy about how to support those who are. This would be a dream come true and I hope that there is a way to make this happen one day! My twitter is: @358jerseys4hope I'd love to have you follow me and interact as much as possible!! From my 2 brain surgeries a few years ago: Still recovering in 2022 but trying to help people stay positive: Y'all are awesome and I continue to become more and more of an IU fan. I think the team is gonna be quite good next season! Hopefully I can watch a game in person over there one day! The Big Ten atmospheres look so much more vibrant than our Pac12 ones here and there is just so much more college basketball close by! I'll make sure to be active here as it seems like a really fun group!

  17. Say what you want about Tom Crean, but the guy handled his exit from IU with grace and continues to represent the university well.

  24. Found the guy in the portal I want above all others. PG from George Mason with the name of Xavier Johnson. I have to think having 2 XJ's playing PG would be enough to cause Coach Shep to spontaneously combust.

  31. Any IU fan that resents or has animosity towards Tom Crean for what he did at IU is off base. He stepped up to the challenge when others shied away. He brought us some great moments. He didn't embarrass the program off the court. The only thing he didn't do was win enough. In the end, he was not the long term answer, but he was a very good short term option.

  32. I got to Indy airport parking, jumped on the bus to a couple wearing IU gear. I said oh man tough loss earlier. The gentleman says yes it was. We chatted, told them the boys names. We kept chatting and I said, "sir, what's your name, you have a really familiar face." "Scott Dolson." I giggled and said, "that would explain it." He asked me how I felt about the direction of the program and I said I was very happy and thought we were heading the right direction. He said what about football. I said I was more than willing to be a huge fan and felt great about Tom Allen and shared the story about a colleague of mine that played high school ball for him that truly loves him. We chatted about how tough it is to win in the B1G. They wished us well and went our ways. I then saw Mrs Dolson walking laps in the terminal as we waited, I was holding the baby, she smiled real big and waved.

  33. I hope some of y’all see that three of our past four games have been absolutely incredible performances by our boys. Beat Purdue with TJD doing nothing. Up by 29 at half in a conference game. 29!!!! Double digit road win at a place we haven’t won since before Bob Knight was born. We have the best post player in the conference and perhaps the best point guard. I’ll take our coaching staff over any in the conference. We have one, if not the most, athletic and energetic benches in the conference. We have one of the best do it all glue guys in Race. If you don’t feel unbridled enthusiasm for this team go see a doctor because you don’t have a pulse.

  34. I want to throw a shout out to XJ. Rob's first half and game winning shot overshadowed a spectacular performance by XJ. And to be honest, I think XJ's performance was at least as important in giving us a chance to win. Honestly, we needed a great game from a lot of people and we got it. XJ is criminally undervalued. He adds a lot of things that do not easily appear in the stats sheet.

  36. I'm not sure why we're complaining about this win? We played well for the most part, with some poor stretches mixed in, but IU was basically in control of this game from start to finish on the road. We got great contributions from Geronimo and Galloway, with Bates pitching in during the first half. We had some issues down the stretch but never relented without TJD. That's a solid road win.

  37. That’s good to hear. I hate to pile on Archie again but one of his biggest weaknesses was his inability to lockdown Finland.
