  1. It's obviously a very good sign that he is taking a visit at all (reportedly). However, if he decides to take his visit at the same as time as Lester (April 24-26), I would become very optimistic about our chances to land both. These two have discussed playing together in the past. I think everyone just assumed that would be somewhere other than Indiana. I think I remember a tweet in mid February where Lester mentioned "they have been talking a lot about it lately" or something close to that narrative.
  2. Lucky for us, the students weren't out during the WatShot. He witnessed one of the more thrilling moments in IUBB history (not sure if it's top 5 considering the titles, but it has to be close to #6). I would love to have him in on Sunday. Refreshing his memory on what IUBB stands for in our salute to seniors, being back in a building that has meant so much to his family, and hopefully catching a little of the contagious, hard-nosed, positive energy that surrounds this team right now might be just enough to make this thing interesting. P.S. While typing this message, the bulls*** spellchecker told me that "positivity" and "WatShot" were misspelled. Someone needs to reach out to whatever Lexington based tech start up we are using for spellcheck and get a refund.
  3. Sounds like we are VERY late to the party. Hopefully we can make up some ground quickly... https://www.daytondailynews.com/sports/archdeacon-college-coaches-flocking-dayton-see-sinclair-phenom/l6LnjvzodEMopxQOV2MrbN/
  4. We obviously hear all the time that hiring an "IU guy" is the way to go for filling coaching vacancies (from certain sources). Wouldn't it be even more influential and beneficial to the university as a whole if we hired an "IU guy" as the AD. If Fred Glass does get fired, it is likely due to his complete disconnect to athletics, more specifically, Indiana athletics. He is a businessman/lawyer and has been very successful on that front as recent numbers/articles have shown. However, he has zero athletic awareness and it shows. We have ended up in good shape financially in the athletic dept., but we have also ended up with dog$h!t like this student athlete bill of rights which enables mediocrity and degrades accountability. For some reason, I can't get Quinn Buckner as a potential AD replacement for Glass out of my head. He obviously has administrative experience (currently on the BOT), he has a name that carries weight in this state which would assist in fundraising, negotiation, etc., he is charismatic (an announcer/commentator), and he has a deep understanding, passion, and grasp on the pulse of Indiana University athletics. I believe he may have even played some football at IU aside from basketball. He cares about more than the money. I'm just thinking out loud.
  5. It's gonna take a complete Nebraska melt down to win this. With so many upperclassmen, very unlikely.
  6. Here is a Hudl page that should upload game highlights for Luke Brown as the season progresses. http://www.hudl.com/profile/10441038/Luke-Brown
  7. This kid has the potential/intangibles to be an absolute stud. Strong arm, great pocket awareness, ability to throw accurate darts on the run (even rolling away from arm side), and goes through progression when making reads/decisions. The fact that his highlight reel from his senior season alone is about 20 minutes long says a lot (video in link posted above). He wasn't playing cupcake high schools in SoCal. All that being said, it will be interesting if those good habits and confidence transfer to the college game. I'm really high on this kid. If he acclimates to Bloomington well, he could have a big impact on next season if the eligibility issue goes our way. I honestly expect him to be starting early in the season if not week 1 IF his transition to a new home is going smoothly this spring. He's a student of the game and has the things you can't teach in a short amount of time, if ever.

  9. Hugh Freeze was hired by Liberty this morning. https://www.newsadvance.com/sports/liberty_university/liberty-moves-swiftly-hires-hugh-freeze-as-football-coach/article_3b75f264-fa22-11e8-bcd4-175dedcff059.html Petrino probably has an ego a bit too large for an OC job at IU but you never know.
  10. I absolutely love that we get to play Duke at their place and I think we have a good chance to win. Some reasons why I love the match up and location... 1. It is an away game against an elite opponent. If we lose, it does little to hurt our resume in March. 2. It is an away game against an elite opponent. If we win, it is absolutely huge for our resume in March (as long as Duke doesn't completely crap the bed this season). 3. Playing a fresh young Duke team that lost a core of starters from last season early in the year has W written all over it for us. I'm not saying it will be easy, but our experience should match up well against their lack thereof. 4. Our freshman get experience in one of the wildest environments in college basketball right out of the gate. If they can survive this game, most big ten away games will seem tame by comparison. This should help to put some ice in their veins and positively impact conference performances down the road.
  11. It sounds like Kentucky may be a front runner with this kid, but who knows. May 12th Interview BUT, I also think this upcoming Hoosier Hysteria (mentioned above as a potential official visit date) will be one of the top 5 HHs in IUBB history regarding excitement, attendance, and overall hype. It may be just enough to seal the deal.
  12. I wanted to include a different scene from this movie including drums, but didn't want to turn this into a softcore porn site...
  13. Nashville and Lawrence in the same morning? He's a human being, not Peter Pan. I wouldn't be surprised if these clowns start taking pictures of staged lookalikes in locations conveniently supporting their narrative. It may get that ridiculous.
