    Possible shooting at IU

    The famed Varsity Villas (or, as it's now called, "Stadium Crossing")? I did my tour of duty at the Villas. It was fun on the weekends because it was like an enclosed block party unto itself -- if you didn't want to leave, you didn't have to!

    New OC - Kalen DeBoer

    why not just promote Mike Hart? Seems like we might lose him soon as a positional coach anyway.

    Thoughts on the Slow Starts?

    If this is what he wants, this seems pretty easy to me. Call 3-4 offensive sets for the first 3-4 possessions of the game. If you don't execute, enjoy your early seat on the bench. I love what he is saying. I want to see him begin to execute. And that doesn't necessarily mean that it's all fine and dandy -- Archie isn't Jesus, he can't magically make players execute -- but he can clearly implement a system, tweak it until they understand it, and hold them accountable to executing it. That is coaching.

    Locking this to send it over to the post game thread.

    Missing front end of 1and1's is my BIGGEST PET PEEVE

    Juwan has made some big mental mistakes today. 3 of his fouls have been lazy.

    IU at Michigan Game Thread

    I wish Archie could bottle up whatever he tells these teams at halftime and say it before the game. On the plus side, it's nice to have a coach who makes adjustments. Getting Morgan in better post position and getting the ball in Romeo's hands more. Let's see it.

    Can someone count the number of rim teasers we've had this game?

    Butler Postgame Thread

    Green puts his head down and dribbles. He shouldn’t be in at the end of games. Neither should McRoberts.

    Butler Pregame Thread

    A nice Saturday morning, bloody mary in hand, for an early afternoon (west coast) tip off. I love days like this. Think Morgan carries us today. I can see us having a tough time getting into the game and our shooters being off -- need to drive and pound the paint.

    2018 Midterm Elections

    ... do we all know that? I'm pretty sure this a serious allegation made by several serious women.

    2018 Midterm Elections

    He... is up for a lifetime nomination to the highest court in the land? A bit of pause seems warranted.

    2018 Midterm Elections

    Yep -- have to find a way to undo Citizens United.

    2018 Midterm Elections

    Really it's $5400 because you can give in both the primary and the general but that is semantics on this question. PAC's (where all Labor contributions come from, with its bank balance derived from VOLUNTARY contributions made by its members) are limited at $5k to federal candidates: https://transition.fec.gov/pages/brochures/contriblimitschart.htm

    2018 Midterm Elections

    Labor union contributions is just the bundling of $3-5 a paycheck from lots of workers to allow them to amplify their voice as a unified force rather than individuals. Voluntary political contributions (which all union political contributions are) will never be made illegal and they shouldn't be. If we're arguing for corporations being people and being allowed to donate to political campaigns, unions are the least of our problems. Campaign finance is, though, the great underbelly that is ruining our politics. Citizens United opened floodgates that McCain-Feingold unintentionally started.

    Expectations for Next Year

    So much in CBB depends on the physical and mental development of young men year over year. I agree -- the predictions are futile. By the time they're in the NBA, the progression levels out and/or becomes more predictable.

    Sometimes yes. I want to eat a burger in peace.

    The way we eat is doing untold things to our bodies. Girlfriend is a nutritionist. It scares me.

    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

    So Very Sad....

    Each side will have hard limits -- and that's okay. What we need is to be more agreeable to compromise in the middle. Accept the other side's hard limits, work to find the areas of common agreement in the middle, and find SOLUTIONS.

    So Very Sad....

    I think both sides of this debate need to accept that anything is better than nothing.

    So Very Sad....

    I'm not sure any person has a solution -- but we have to admit there is a problem. I think we also have to be willing to TRY some solutions, accept they don't work, and try other ones. The only failure is trying nothing. Sickening.

    I was just thinking about doing that, Rico! Great minds think alike.
