  1. I never thought I'd be talking about various short lengths the day before March Madness, but here we are.
  2. or kind of, anyway. Read more here.
  3. HSN members: Are you craving a little basketball fix? Do you find yourself watching re-runs of old games or watching marble racing with the same vigor you cheer on our Hoosiers? We understand. We feel the same way. Thankfully, a member stepped up with a wonderful idea to help us pass the time. We can thank cybergates, our new resident HSN Tournament Commissioner, for creating our own version of March Madness: That's right - our Hoosiers are facing off against our Hoosiers. We can't lose! Every day, cybergates will post the entire slate of all of the day's "games" on a single thread with multiple poll questions. Members are encouraged to discuss, debate, and vote the various matchups! In the interest of fairness, teams were seeded sequentially by year. In all honesty, random seeding isn't too different than what the Selection Committee does some years, so we felt it was appropriate. Keep your eyes peeled for posts beginning at 12pm EST tomorrow and prepare to defend your favorite IUBB team all the way to the Final Four! HF + the team
  4. Howdy folks - I'd encourage everyone to go read my post in the announcements section regarding this topic. The shorter version? Don't dive into deeply into politics and don't call each other names.
  5. Hi all: COVID-19 (the "coronavirus") is obviously impacting just about every life on the planet right now in very impactful ways. It would be foolish of us to try to limit discussion of it, particularly as it impacts the NCAA tournament, the NBA season, and so many other issues we discuss here daily. Instead, we'll reiterate two important points: 1) We don't discuss politics That isn't to say we're banning discussion of public policy or governmental actions - posting, for example, that the school near where you live shut down is a benign and apolitical statement! If you take it a step further, though, and say it's the rat bastard Democratic/Republican/etc Governor who has a plot to brainwash students - you're inherently making a political statement. You all - wait - most of you are smart enough to know the difference. If you aren't, we'll gently nudge you back to within the rules. 2) No personal attacks On an issue where folks may have very different views of the severity of the virus or the quality of the public health response to it, it is vitally important to discuss your differences amicably. Bluntly put: we're not here to tolerate any BS and we'll hand out temporary or permanent bans to folks violating this rule. I'm not sure what the hell we're going to talk about, but I'm sure we'll figure it out.
  6. You might be correct but it’s just a pointless thing to say with that much time left. To each their own.
  7. The IU scoring drought is too consistent. Man. No FG in 7 minutes to close the game.
  8. Some of these fouls seem soft but I'm not gonna complain. The progression of this team correlates so directly with increases in minutes for Hunter and Thompson. It's like a different team. Man, how nice is it to be trending up in March.
  9. Hmm, world renowned doctors or HSN posters. Not saying I don't love you all, but I know where my money is going, vbg.
  10. Sampson withdrew from the portal and is back with IUFB per Osterman
  11. You are a kind soul - apology accepted
  12. Final warning - if you break the rules in response to someone else who is breaking the rules, you too will receive a warning.
  13. Hi all: If you see offending content, please do not arbitrate publicly - please use the report function. You are also always welcome to PM a mod.
  14. This team has clearly turned a corner. Not coincidentally, we are shooting better. Who knew they could be correlated.
  15. tough way to end the game. My POV: sports are supposed to be a relief/break from the banality and frustrations of everyday life. Go for a walk, mow the lawn, or drink a beer - whatever tickles your fancy. Still bit of a beautiful Sunday left to enjoy.
  16. it's just part of the game. being good means our top talent will get poached until/unless we're consistently in the top 25. we're starting to approach the awkward "good but not good enough to stick around forever" territory.
  17. Smith travels on that same move so frequently.
  18. You good? This is the third or fourth time you've name dropped me.
