  1. Pacers vs Cavs Series

    Pacers are in a PRIME position to add some major pieces the next 2 offseasons. Vic is on a cheap deal (relative to his skill) for 3 more years. They will almost certainly decline Jefferson's $10m deal and our only major FA is Robinson III. If we wanted to make a move on a star, decline Bogdanovic and shoot for someone like Aaron Gordon. Maybe Thad Young opts out instead (which would hurt) but we still land someone like Gordon. Or this all waits for an offseason and we're back in the same place next offseason. All possibilities because Vic is locked up.
  2. Pacers vs Cavs Series

    I've never had this much fun cheering on the Pacers, though. This team is so damn likable.
  3. Pacers vs Cavs Series

    PG's team had a bad fit but part of that is on PG. They made some win-now moves to try and show PG they were serious. Bird had a PG-imposed 1-2 year window in front of him because PG wouldn't commit. It narrowed their vision. This "team" also looks more cohesive because their star player is a leader. It's really just a massive confluence of events, imo. It's like hitting a bad roll in Yahtzee, taking all the dice again, and rolling all 5's. We had a bad hand, started from scratch, and largely hit gold. It's really hard to pin-point 1 specific area. It's Vic's massive step forward as a player. It's his leadership (vis a vis PG). It's Pritchard's masterful signings (Collison and Bogie have been simply superb). It's the smart, cheap signing of Lance last season. Just all of the things, really.

    Alright fellas -- rein it in with the language. Folks are allowed to have silly opinions (that's why we allow posters like Candystripe) but let's avoid personal attacks.
  5. Panel moderators ? Help

    Might not exactly get to the answer, so if other folks here can help, more is always appreciated!
  6. Panel moderators ? Help

    Sounds like the tablet has autocorrect set up. They make so many new versions of Kindle Fire's I couldn't find the right how to guide online, so I gave a few guiding questions that hopefully a reasonably tech savvy librarian could find the settings and how to turn it off.

  8. Announcing a new position

    Mile will be primarily focusing his time on interacting with members and continuing to build the culture that we think separates HSN from other IU sites as the cream of the crop. As a result, he will step back from the day-to-day grind of moderating. If you have any moderation needs, please let a member of the mod team know and we'll do our best to resolve it quickly!

    These have both been added.
  10. Announcing a new position

    HSN Members: Happy offseason! Thank you for another fantastic season. I think I can speak for all of us when I say we're waiting with bated breath to see how our Hoosiers look next season. Until then, we've got a lot of fantastic matters to discuss and lots of teenage twitter to obsess over. The offseason is also normally a time when the mod team can reassess our board, where it is at, and where it can be better. I am proud to announce the creation of a new position on our team: HSN Chancellor Emeritus. For the IU grads among us, the position will no doubt ring a familiar tone to the position held by the infamous Herman B Wells. A Hoosier through and through, the position of Chancellor was created to honor Wells' contribution to IU and to facilitate his continued involvement in the areas he was most passionate about. Wells was a noted entertainer and frequently had students over for dinner and discussion. At other times, Wells could be found around campus sitting and talking with students about any matter under the sun. Leadership at the University correctly realized that Wells' value to IU was not merely as an administrator or bureaucrat but as the true face of the University. Herman B Wells was Indiana University. The position of HSN Chancellor Emeritus was created to honor the commitment to our site and our community by a member of our team who has dedicated years to building the very culture of Hoosier Sports Nation. Whether by welcoming new members or discussing seemingly any matter with an existing member, HSN's Chancellor Emeritus embodies all that that Herman B Wells would wish for a position created in his image to. By now, I would hope there is no surprise -- but there is great honor for me -- to announce that Milehiiu will assume the role of HSN Chancellor Emeritus effectively immediately. You'll see Mile/Ken in our "courtyard" (The Animal House) and strolling about HSN, ready to make your visit and time here more enjoyable. HF
  11. Morgan declares for NBA draft

    Good for him. And if he decides to stay in -- GREAT for him, even if it hurts us. That means he's got a real chance at getting drafted and all I want for any (well, most, vbg) of our players is for them to represent IU well and get further along the path of chasing their dreams.
  12. Romeo Langford

    We asked Romeo to hold off. He said April but this traffic is so good, we wanted to savor every day, vbg. Thanks for your loyal viewing, HSN. This one has been a fun ride.
  13. Kansas named in probe

    FBI/DOJ has a looooooot more power to compel information than the NCAA does.

    We all need our time to recharge

    Let's keep it off of other posters on this one. Everyone is entitled to their opinions. When someone's opinions get a bit over the top/too foul, the mod team steps in privately
