  1. My father tells of the 1959-60 team that had many of these players. They went 20-4 and came in 2nd to OSU(eventual national champs) in the Big Ten. I believe back then only the conference champs went to the tourney. There was some racial tension on the team when Herbie Lee was caught smooching a white co-ed in the Union and Radovich was evidently not happy. (This is how my father recalls it, and his memory is second to known.) IU started Big Ten play with 3 straight loses, with on coming from OSU. Once the tensions were "cleared up", they did not lose another game the rest of the season, crushing the Buckeyes at the end of the season. There was little doubt IU was the best team in the country that year. Does anyone else recall that season the same way?

    Morgan withdraws from NBA draft

    I think Morgan's leadership is the most important part of next year's team. We need that Jr-Sr player that leads on and off the court. With his return, I believe that the timeline for elite level success(if there is going to be one) has shorted by at least two years.

    DJ Carton Commits to Ohio State

    It does feel good. I feel way better about things.

    DJ Carton Commits to Ohio State

    Who knows what the future holds, but I think we are about to be a powerhouse again, a major pain in the butt to the rest of the college landscape, and are likely to be a serious player for big time recruits. An offer from IU will really be difficult for 5 stars to turn down. Moving forward we will not be a long shot to land any kid.

    At least we can all enjoy this one with you.

    Since Romeo might be reading this, and because he took PreCalc as a Junior(don't know what he did this year), I will say this: Your thinking is sound if you want permutations. I am sure that we could agree that a line up of Langford, Morgan, Smith, Green and Durham is the same as a line up of Durham, Smith, Green, Morgan and Langford. Since order doesn't matter, we have to divide your number by the number of possible ways to put 5 players in order. Thus, 154,440 should be divided by 5!, giving us 1287 different combinations. Now if we thinking starting Green at the 5 instead of the 2 makes for a unique line-up, then your number is spot on. I bet they aren't talking about this on the Vandy board.

    13 C 5 = 1287 IIRC

    The Crystal Ball is suppose to be for fun, I guess. When we see all these experts with 100% accuracy ratings when they change their vote right before an announcement, it seems a little like they are padding their stats. For me it is like a meteorologist getting the weather right by changing their forecast from sunny to rainy when they see the storm clouds in the sky.

    Using the implied subject in a declarative statement may also affect Romeo. Come to IU!!! Now there is an imperative statement I think we can all get behind.

    Around the B1G/NCAA

    I guess my overall point is that the things are shifting, or have shifted, in the conference away from years of Izzo as "the guy", and that many schools have new coaches that are young and promising. I stand by this concept even if some of the coaches aren't all that young age-wise. Holtmann(46), Pikiell(50), Miles(50), Chambers(47), Underwood(54), Pitino(35), Collins(43), Miller(39). Izzo (63), Coach K (71), Williams(67) and Boeheim(73) are all nearer to the end of coaching.

    Around the B1G/NCAA

    Aside from a few coaches, the conference is filled with coaches that could be around for 20 years. Archie is, IMO, the most promising, but I think you could go through more than three schools and see that they all have their guy for awhile. Penn State, Rutgers, Nebraska, OSU, Illini(maybe), Northwestern, Minnesota(maybe), Wisky. I think we know what Purdue, Iowa, and Maryland have, not bad, but not great. Of course I know that all these coaches are not going to pan out, but I bet more than three will.

    Around the B1G/NCAA

    I think Villanova is the team to beat and Beilein is currently the best coach in the Big Ten. Izzo might be waning, and aside from Beilein, the Big is filled with a lot of young and promising coaches.

    One of the years a team like Loyola is going to win it all, not just get the Final 4. Who knows, this year the unthinkable happened when a 16 beat a 1...... The top teams year in and year out are not as good as they used to be due to the one and done culture.

    Two things: First, the Vandy poster's claims comparing IU to them shows that in many ways they have a comparable resume to us. They are smart to compare the last ten years because this was the worst stretch in IU basketball history. Gun to the head, who do you think they would pick in a "thingy" measuring contest over the next ten years, IU or Vandy? Second, in terms of the concerns from a couple pages back about kids wanting attention in this day and age, I just say that when I was in school, there was no Twitter, FB, or a 168 page thread followed by many post college men and women who are commenting on every possible move you may be making as a 17 year old. Hard to see how this wall-to-wall coverage does not impact these kids. Romeo, by all accounts, is handling this type of hype and coverage as maturely as anyone would reasonably expect. My wife and kids never give me anywhere close to the attention these kids get from people all over the state. My guess is that if people started fawning over me the way these kids get fawned over, I fear I could turn into a world-class arrogant pinhead.
