  1. ..... sound the same. But are spelled differently. And have different meanings. Such as : Roll and Role
  2. ^^^ Thank you. Seeking 6 for your "like" to my post. Just know ....that you are a valued member of Hoosier Sports Nation.
  3. As I stated above. With the expansion of the regular season Big Ten schedule, there remains a limited amount of RELEVANT non conference games to be played. All the while, attempting to re-establish a national presence. As much as I hate to say it. I have to agree with you that it is time for IU to disengage from the CC.... and let the CC run it's course without IU. It's not like there are not enough Indiana teams to keep that tournament viable without IU being a part of it. It's time that IU puts itself on the national stage... once again. Like before, and where IU belongs.
  4. You make some very good arguments for not expanding the CC. Personally, as much as I would like to have an expansion of Indiana schools in this tournament, I have to agree with you. Especially with the expansion of the Big Ten regular season schedule, and recalling the Knight years, when IU would open with the dominate team in the nation....UCLA. In order to gain traction again, in the minds of basketball fans across this great nation of ours.... IU needs to play the teams you have listed, including Duke... rather than some of the other teams in Indiana. PU and ND excepted. Sorry, about that team that plays in the great Hinkle field house. One or two great coaches don't make a tradition... even if you made it to two NCAA finals.

    At times. People tend to discount the value of an assistant. I am pleased that you and many others recognize the value that Ed brings to our program.

    Recruiting Momentum?

    And you..... my friend, are way too modest.

    It is nice to have confirmation that my mind is not failing me. Crean had nothing in the cupboard, his first year. And I too can understand why DJ would want to move on, and make money playing basketball. In the end... I still love all that DJ did for IU's program.

    We can talk of Romeo and others. However, perhaps the recruitment of Ed may be Archie's greatest recruitment.

    DJ Carton

    Yes. And just as with Birdman.... when CoachSS is speaking..... you need to listen. Truly an honor to have CoachSS as a member of HSN. And willing to share. Just as Birdman did back in the day.

    It's possible. Takes some extenuating circumstances, and the NCAA willing to grant a hardship request. But... it can happen. And has. I believe DJ White who gave up a medical redshirt during his Sophomore year, to return to action, could have applied for a hardship as a result, but chose not to. I could be wrong on that. I do seem to recall talking about that. But memory seems that was an option upon graduation, since he gave up his medical redshirt, his second year. Normally hardships are issued for other reasons. But as I recall, some felt DJ should have requested a hardship. Anybody.... feel free to correct me if I am wrong. No problem.

    Recruiting Momentum?

    A lot of meat on this bone TDH. Just as my mind is conjuring up things as I read through your great article.... then I come to what I have been thinking.... and your addressing it. For, instance.... I was one who thought Cody Zeller had finally proved to Indiana kids that it was "cool" to commit to IU. And as I thought about Duke.... on a perpetual role in terms of recruiting..... yet again, you address that as well. Like hoosierfan615..... can't say enough about your work. And all you are doing for Hoosier Sports Nation. You are the cream in our crimson coffee. Speaking of momentum. TDH.... you are on a roll. Things just keep getting better from the very first day you posted on HSN. And a term from when I was a student at IU in reference to IU's FB team during our Rose Bowl year. There was a billboard on 37 heading North which stated "Keep the Ball rolling".... with a weekly update after every win. A take on a popular song at the time.... and WLS radio out of Chicago.... Jay And The Techniques - Keep The Ball Rollin' - So... I say to you TDH..... Keep the ball rolling !

    The top 3 scorers for IU this season.

    Matt was born in 1992. And finished at Marquette, in the 2014-2015 season. Which would have made him 23 or 24 years old when he finished playing D-1 basketball. My math may be off. But I think it is close. When enrolling at BYU... Matt chose not to go on a mission. Which is acceptable, by the school. Not all BYU players go on a two year mission. Just imagine if he did. He would have been 25 or plus years before finishing college, had he gone on a mission and then transferred to Marquette. The stint at UCLA was epic. Dad got involved. Helped make a mess of things. Though in that case, I don't think it was all the dad's fault. Matt and coach did not get along. Sports Illustrated story sheds light on why Carlino left UCLA for BYU Truly... a helicopter parent.... who caused most of this to happen... who began the mess, when he moved the family to Bloomington, when Matt committed to IU. And of course, as we know, never played for IU. Matt Carlino talks about playing Indiana basketball and beyond after college

    I am down with that. Especially having followed many BYU players over the years, who started college only after their missions. Or broke up their college to go on their mission. Something to be said about maturity.

    pe e yew adds 6'6" forward Kyle King

    I must say, considering the current state of the Illini program..... there is some sense of Schadenfruede considering the flames thrown IU's way from Illini fans, post Sampsongate.
  18. for Ayton. Sean Miller: Arizona coach discussed payment for DeAndre Ayton
  19. Having grown up in Gary.... and following teams going all the way back to the mid 1950's.... it was not unusual for teams from Gary that made it past the sectionals to have an inordinate number of fouls called upon them. Just a comment, on my part.

    Correct. And for that you get today's coveted milehiiu : "Well, done ! " LOL King.... kind of a legacy. Purdue Basketball Roster Moves: Kyle King Added as Walk-on And related to my above post about Illinois targets. Let it be known, currently IU has 29 targets listed. Of which 10 are from the state of Indiana.

    pe e yew adds 6'6" forward Kyle King

    Thanks HTD. Out of curiosity, and because of your thread, I decided to check on Illinois' targets. 36 listed in all. And of the 36.... only three are from Illinois. So, it is not surprising that an Illinois kid chose PU. Underwood, is doing zip, locking up the state of Illinois, or the city of Chicago...... unlike Archie has been true to his pledge to lock up the state of Indiana. One has to believe there are more than just three top notch talents in Illinois. Causes me to wonder if there is a relationship problem with the Illinois HS coaches and Underwood, similar to what was purported to be the case with Tom Crean. Also, so many of the kids that Underwood first recruited leaving the team may be an issue as well.
