  1. Pacers vs Cavs Series

    Huge game tonight. Winner of Game 3 when series is tied wins 77% of the time (couldn't find a current stat so this is from article back in 2012 so not sure what the more recent/accurate % is).

    Especially if we get bumps like this

    That and the fact that he has experienced 1st hand (on numerous occasions I assume) that basketball means as much in Indiana as football does in Alabama. He just happens to play basketball in the wrong state, at least for now...

    I wonder what it takes academically to reclassify and at what point (if any) it is too late to do the necessary work in time to graduate early. That being said, it seems like reclassifying to commit early to IU is putting the cart way way way before the horse. We don't even know if we're in the lead for him, and I haven't seen anything that leads me to believe that he's ready to commit anywhere now, let alone commit and reclassify. It sounded the opposite, that they were looking to start planning their fall visits and trim the list at that time. I thought reclassify when I read the Archie comment of him being ready for college now too, but that's not really a strong argument for TW actually doing so. Would love for it to be true though!

    Awesome. Keep up the good work Archie, Race, and whoever else is doing it.

    I'm as much of a fan of RP as any, but I agree. The writer makes some illogical conclusions/comparisons: If we get Romeo we're no Duke or fUK because they're getting 3-4 Romeos. Disagree because while Romeo is a 5*, not all 5* are Romeo. As oft discussed here, Romeo being an in-state high school legend 5* could have a far reaching impact beyond his time at IU. He's no "hired gun" 5* going to Duke or fUK for whatever reason$ player$ tend to go there. Talks about how Final Fours teams had upperclass leadership from the PG position. Agree this is important but RP isn't going to be an upperclassmen until the 2020-2021 season. So many things can happen between now and then that could derail the RP is the most important recruit train and his point counters his own first point for Duke/fUK since they don't have upperclass leadership PG's often, if ever anymore.
  8. Pacers vs Cavs Series

    I wasn't saying LBJ had the greatest Eastern Conference dominance ever, just countering his claim of historic EC dominance by saying that 3 runs to the Finals isn't historic to me, but LBJ's 7 straight is. The Bulls certainly had a historic run, but I disagree that the Bulls would have won anywhere close to 10 years in a row. After both 3 peats, MJ was drained from playing so many games at his level in that timespan. The NBA season is long and then having to play more games to win a championship eventually would have wore him out. The Pacers almost took them out in 98 and even as a Pacer fan, the Bulls team was better. If they weren't coming off of two championship lengthened seasons, I think they could have handled the Pacers more easily. Plus so many other variables like injuries and personalities are completely unable to be accounted for. If Jordan didn't retire, the team in 96 that won 72 games may have looked drastically different. Maybe they don't get Rodman since they don't need to put up with his antics coming off 5 championships in a row. Maybe Pippen or Jordan gets hurt in 94 or 95 and never fully recovers. Stuff like that. Boston before my day would have the claim to most historic EC (and NBA for that matter) dominance of all-time. They've won the most NBA and EC championships and had runs before my time and in the 80's.
  9. Pacers vs Cavs Series

    Historic Eastern Conference dominance belongs to LeBron not Cleveland. Cleveland sucked @$$ for years before LeBron and while he was in Miami. Speaking of which how did you react to him leaving and coming back? Love how the Cleveland fans burned his jersey then welcomed him back with open arms.

    Watching OG in game 1 of the playoffs make it hurt that much more that the Pacers passed on him for TJ freaking Leaf. Granted, McMillan would have had to play him and I'm not sure of his stance on playing rookies.
  11. Romeo Langford

    So true that Romeo wouldn't get that in Nashville and while he may get that in Kansas, there's not much reason (or time for that matter with the length of the NBA season) for Romeo to go back to the state of Kansas if he played at KU. He's definitely coming back to Indiana to play against/for (how awesome would that be?) the Pacers and he seems to love his hometown of NA so I would imagine he would spend part of his offseasons there as well.

    I saw something about he'd be the highest since Sullinger at OSU.

  14. Think twice before you travel to Mexico.

    Looks like no foul play in this tragedy, but still very sad. https://www.desmoinesregister.com/story/news/investigations/2018/04/04/creston-iowa-sharp-family-dead-mexico-water-heater-gas-asphyxiation/486239002/
