    Brian Evans

    I love this quote from Evans about Coach Knight: “He was real honest,” Evans said, “Sometimes, he’s up close in your face and being real honest with you with a loud volume.” Let's call it what it was, being screamed at a few inches from your face. 😂

    IU - Southern Indiana Game Thread

    Sounds like poor shooting from 3 and ft line. That could pose problems this year if we can't knock down shots.

    Scouting Report on Loyola Chicago

    Someone must have forgot to send that report to me then. Please add me to the report list so I can get the reports that everyone else evidently gets. Thanks.
  6. I think you're spot on about the NCAA not really punishing the schools involved. I can easily see them going that direction of new reforms to clean things up and lay out clearer guidelines in the regs.
  7. Key quote I took from this article. http://www.espn.com/mens-college-basketball/story/_/id/25072946/james-gatto-merl-code-christian-dawkins-found-guilty-college-basketball-pay-play-trial Assistant U.S. Attorney Edward Diskant told the jury that even if the coaches were complicit in the pay-for-scheme, that doesn't excuse the defendants. "The coaches at the universities weren't allowed to be doing this," Diskant said. To me, this validates the fact that coaches were involved and the NCAA can not ignore it. Even though they might.
  8. For those that haven't seen, read the link below. The NBA G League is setting a program to give the option to one and does to make 125k on a 1 year G League contract before entering the draft. This could have a dramatic shift in high school talent choosing G League over College. What are your thoughts? http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/25015812/g-league-offer-professional-path-elite-prospects-not-wanting-go-one-done-route-ncaa

    Matthew Hurt

    Back to Matthew Hurt. Hurt makes it clear that he sees himself as a one and done and is looking at how schools develop one and done players. Here is the IndyStar Article on Hurt

    It's going to take someone with some balls to step up and defy their editor then and accept the risk of getting blacklisted in the industry. Someone who values what real journalism used to be.

    Ohio State Game Thread

    Impressed by the aggressive play calling. Up 17-14. Go Hoosiers!
  12. I was hoping to read that he said, "really wanted Indiana, but they just wouldn't offer up any cash." 😁

    Rutger Game Thread

    I agree. Gives opponents something to think about and worry about for future games and provides good opportunities for practice.
