  1. I never ridiculed anyone. I stated my opinion on what i thought about blindly supporting anyone. Not once did i make fun of or ridicule a group or specific person. I stated how "I" can not do that myself. And yes i know you were in that group who supported him to the day he was fired. But i didn't call you out, like you have me, or anyone else in that group. I made a blanket statement about how I can't see how anyone can do that and can't do that "myself". If you're offended by that, then that is on you. You're the one who has made this personal toward me. You attacked me and called me a hypocrite and called me out. This seems to be your issue and not mine. I didn't make a 6 paragraph statement, while searching for a post by you, to use as my case against you. But i am done with this discussion with you. Please let it go. I plan to.
  2. Wow, I wasn't targeting you with this comment. There were multiple posters on here who were die hard to the bitter supporters of whomever our coach is. I stated that i didn't understand how people can do that. I didn't point you out specifically and i didn't go back and find a specific post that called you out for what you think. I stated and i quote "Blindly supporting someone because of the position they hold is so foreign to me that I can't understand how people do it." This happens not only for coaches of team, but political leaders and many other instances. This is your issue, not mine. Not once in the comment did i mention anyone specific. If you immediately went to i was targeting you, well that isn't me, that's you.
  3. He was bad for IU. 4 years of really bad. Historically bad. And the further away we get from him, the more evident it becomes. Looking back on people who were die hard to the very bitter end supporters of him still boggles my mind. Blindly supporting someone because of the position they hold is so foreign to me that I can't understand how people do it.
  4. we just don't know anything yet. The exhibition didn't really give us anything. X and Stewart both didn't show much. Bates could be an X factor. TJD will be able the same i think. Race, well i am not sure there. And Kopp could or could not find his shot again. I like the team and the coach, something i haven't said in a long time. But i am not digging out my crimson glasses and putting them on any longer. Being a realist here. I don't think we're going to be terrible or fantastic this year. So 5 to 7 is an improvement year one over the last 5 years. I will take that this year
  5. I would be surprised if we were top 3 this year. I would feel comfortable with 5-7 and consider it a good year. Disappointed with anything lower than that.
  6. 5-7 is about where i expect us to be with how much was lost across the conference.
  7. I was on the Evansville team (as a freshman) the last year they had a football program. I made it to the first game before leaving the program. Only time in my whole I life I didn't finish a season. The coach was a giant d-bag and I was struggling in school. Wish I had finished though
  8. Imagine if we had made them close games and actually scored more than 6 points. College football actually looks at how big the win/loss is.
  9. Its not taboo, its just, i am not sure of the word. But a person can't do anything about their height. Being a bad coach, yeah he could do something about that, but not how tall he is.
  10. objectively to me, it looks like he leans his helmet down toward the QB. Not saying he didn't get pushed into him and he could avoid it, but maybe its the tipping of the crown to the facemask that got it called? I don't know. I hate targeting calls like this. I would have given the penalty, no ejection and moved on.
  11. I agree completely and my post was aimed at no one at all. I just believe its a valid assessment of where were are this year. New Coach, new player and some returning player from a less than successful team the last couple years. 7th is right about where i expect us to be. I would love to be a top 4 team this year but i won't be surprised to be more around the 6-8 spot.
  12. i mean, until we prove we're not a mid pack team, its a pretty easy pick to pick us top middle. Every year we look and say there is no reason we're not a top 4 and we just don't do it. I truly we are a top 4 team this year and prove it to everyone.
  13. Went to school with a kids named Butts. Didn't have a funny first name. He was an ass. probably still is.
  14. The only venues rob has an issue shooting in, are the ones that have basketball hoops in them. I don't understand how this kid completely lost his ability/confidence or whatever to shoot the basketball.
  15. This is interesting. You could add a whole curriculum easily around this. Marketing classes, Speech/Communication classes, Finance/Budgeting, Health and Sports Medicine. There are so many things that could help prepare these kids for the next level.
  16. The rest of the world has and continues to tread Covid-19 as Pandemic. We in the US declared it safe and have moved on with our lives. Whether that was a good or bad idea is up to each person and they own individual beliefs, political or otherwise. And we should not be surprised or otherwise outraged by another countries decision that doesn't meet with those of the United States and its occupants. We might police the world and heed the call to defend those we deem allies, but it doesn't mean we get to dictate their rules when they differ from out own. Plus, Covid-19 is a US government hoax that has tricked the whole world into believing we're all going to die from it so they can harvest our organs when they plug us into the matrix. Greatest global conspiracy since the Moon Landing.
  17. This i could get behind. A team to kick the shit out of in football and boost the conference in basketball
  18. It really is hard to tell if they liked him or not with all the losing. Lack of effort on the court. Back talking and general distain for any coaching he did during the game and throughout his time as the head coach. The more we lost; the more we struggled to score; the more our offense was exposed as basic and pedestrian; the more announcers, other teams and players called us out for being soft and easy, Each time this happened, players, coaches, and fan lost more and more respect and trust of CAM. To the point players would blatantly ignore or clap back at coach when coming off the court. Fans were booing on in the stands and calling for his job. But did they like him, i don't know. Maybe. They sure didn't act like they respected him at all. I am not dogging on CAM. He took the job. I assume he tried his absolute best to win games. He just failed. It happens to allot of people, including high paid coaches.
  19. Doesn't matter our non-con or conference schedule. Win 25+ games and we're probably a 5 seed. Winning Cures All as they say. Hell if Gonzaga can get 20 wins in that shitty conference they are in and hang everything on 8 non conference games, we should be able to do it the other way around.
