  1. A Question: Does anyone remember the last second shot or tip-in that won the triple OT game against Wisconsin back in 1987? I lived in the country back then, didn't have cable (game was on ESPN), so I listened to the game on the radio. I'm never sure if my heart can take OT games or more than 1 OT in a game. Thanks for the great comments and the trip down memory lane. --Jeri
  2. I have to say that Smart's shot is my favorite because of what was at stake. While it may not have been a true buzzer beater (time wasn't running out), without it we wouldn't have won that game. It's great to know that we'll forever be known as national champions for that season. PS Anytime we could win a game called by Brent Musburger & Billy Packer was always a bonus in my book. Next for me would have to be the Jay Edwards shot against Michigan in 1989. I was at the game, the hall was rocking and it was so loud that you couldn't hear the buzzer to even know if the ball had left his hands before it sounded. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kaJTuXlBXlk Then, the Wat shot because anytime you can beat Kentucky is a great day. As for the Phinisee finish, I have to love Rob's awareness & willingness to take that shot. Especially as a freshman. He definitely got up high to take that shot and as I think Joe Hillman put it once upon a time, "It was bucket"!!! Going wayback, I remember Butch Carter hitting a shot with 8 seconds left to give IU the NIT championship over Purdue. Anytime we can get the best of the Boilers it's a great day as well. PS: My least favorite buzzer beater had to be from Illinois' Nick Anderson in 1989 the week after Edwards buzzer beater against Michigan.

    Found this on Facebook in the "Indiana All For You" group and got the original poster's permission to share. Figured we could all use the humor after Skip Bayless & his classless tweet. Enjoy!

    Well now I feel like I can breathe...Had a moment when his dad was speaking that I thought we were going to get punked and I didn't know if my heart could take it. I haven't been this excited about IU basketball & it's future in a long time. WooHoo!! In Archie & his staff I'm trusting! I hope that Romeo is the first domino to fall in what I hope will be lots of in-state players wanting to play for the Hoosiers!!! The ornery side of me wonders if we should all lift our glasses in a toast to Slick Rick Pitino for getting into trouble and paving the way for this happen. Maybe we should send him a fruit basket. LOL LOL 😜 It's a great day to be a HOOSIER!!

    Now I really feel like I'm in the movie "Hoosiers 2.0" starring Archie Miller as Norm Dale - Romeo Langford as Jimmy Chitwood and Dan Dakich as some jackass in the crowd. LOL 😜

    Are you talking about Bobby's Colorado Steakhouse on College Ave? It may have closed for a while and changed owners as I really don't remember the history, but it is open. Just had lunch there on Friday.

    Pardon the interruption, but here's an odd random thought that keeps coming to me, could the special guest be Rob Phinisee? I guess I saw it as a good sign when Phinisee attended the regionals. As I said, one of those random thoughts that keeps nagging at back of my mind. Now back to work before the boss lady finds me on HSN. 😉

    The IndyStar's HS sports twitter account (@indyhsscores) just posted a couple of pics of Romeo & his family on the red carpet tonight. Notice, he's wearing the red shoes. Guess he likes them...wonder if they come in a high top version? 😉

    FWIW -- I saw that Jake Forrester's comment was IU. And, Romeo liked it.

    This might be a little OT, but at little diversion never hurt. Romeo just posted this to Instagram. Fingers crossed that he's wearing more crimson next year. --Jeri
