  1. Talked with my parents who went to the game this afternoon and they said that they spoke with an usher they have gotten to know over the years and he said that the possibility of Knight attending the game was addressed in their pre-game briefing this morning, so apparently the rumor had some legs to it, but for whatever reason he didn't attend.
  2. Students are still out on break. Unfortunately there are still plenty of tickets available through the box office, let alone the aftermarket sites like Stubhub. I will be there cheering them on. There used to be time that these games over the holiday breaks were the hottest ticket around, it was the only opportunity for may fans across the state to see a game in person, and people from hours away would buy tickets to come see a game. I know this team has lots of areas for improvement and still makes a lot of boneheaded plays, and I understand they deserve a lot of the criticism they receive. But they have managed to get themselves to an 11-1 record with one non-conference game left. I, for one, am going to focus on that and stay positive and do all I can to support this team. I have no idea what our conference record will be or if we will make the tournament this year. After 2 conference games there is a 12-way tie for 2nd place at 1-1, as many have said before, this year looks to be brutal in the B1G. Holding home court is a must this year, and attendance is the key to creating home court advantage.
  3. I haven't listened to the podcast, but going off the names listed in the thread, it's a pretty short list. Are these the guys Kitchell wanted IU to speak with about the job? What about Keith Smart, Dane Fife, Michael Lewis, Tom Coverdale, Sherron Wilkerson, AJ Guyton, Lawrence Frank, and I'm sure there's more. Not saying all or any would have been the right guy for the job, but all former Hoosiers who are or have coached. How do we know they weren't contacted regarding the coaching search?
  4. It's easy to not punish the kids; let them transfer and be immediately eligible. However, I have 2 caveats to that: 1) if a kid was involved in any of the violations he should be punished; 2) the kids should have to declare to transfer now, if they wait to see what the schools punishment is, then they are stuck with that too.
  5. Another heads up, you cannot currently exit I69 southbound to State 46 East (toward stadium)
  6. I Don't recall many highlight dunks, and knight probably would have considered some of the dunks we see today as showboating and benched him, but I remember hearing stories of Andre Harris grabbing dollar bills off the top of the backboard at practice. But to answer your question, I would have to say yes.
  7. Nothing Earth shattering, but I ran into Juwan at the store this afternoon, we didn't have a long conversation, but he did share that he has had some interest from a few NBA teams. We were both shopping for suitcases, hopefully this means he's getting ready to travel for some workouts. Anyway, he is such a nice, polite and respectful young man. I wished him luck and went on my way.
  8. Great memories. Growing up in B-town with a Dad who worked for IU, I got to be at the track the 2 days they filmed most of the race scenes and spent 1 afternoon riding around the infield in a golf cart with Daniel Stern and Jackie Earl Haley
  9. Well, Elston will be sitting on the bench at the start of both of these games...a glimmer of hope...
  10. Worried about this one. Same shoulder he had surgery on. On the flip side, team really stepped up in his absence.
  11. You could be (probably are) right. The OP made reference to Gordon playing through his broken wrist for draft status, so my statement was made from the perspective that Romeo is playing through an injury due to his intent to enter the draft after this year vs taking the time off to repair/heal the injury and potentially sliding in the draft or playing an additional year in college.
  12. This has crossed my mind as well, although I have no idea if it is actually the case. However, unfortunately, if this is case, IMHO, it means he has absolutely no intention of staying in college beyond this year.
  13. Was Beilein even under consideration? Honest question, I don't remember, but I do recall that many posters indicated the Greenspan's top choice was Kevin Stallings. My recollection is that Greenspan had a top three list, and I don't remember the other 2 names, but none of them were minorities and Herbert stepped in and we wound up with Sampson.
  14. Didn't Louisville just get into some hot water for paying for the players hoes? 😎
  15. New Years in Santa Clara anyone? https://www.si.com/college-football/2018/11/18/bowl-projections-week-12-playoff-rankings-schedule DEC. 31 Redbox Bowl, Santa Clara, Calif. (3 p.m. ET, Fox) Big Ten vs. Pac-12 Indiana vs. Oregon
