  1. Do we dump Ranch Dressing over his head then?
  2. He sits in disgrace now, but was not at the time, his son coaches Minnesota.
  3. The die for this mess was cast in the early 90's, then cemented in 2001 with the hiring of Davis. Bob Knight was uncontrollable, Mike Davis was totally controllable. At the time Davis was hired, there was a marquee coach available, who was interested in the IU job. But IU hired a man who had NO head coaching experience. Because after Knight, they felt they needed control of the program. This is, simply put, the end results of the vision of Myles Brand. Okay, go ahead and jump on me, tell me how stupid and ignorant I am!
  4. Hey man............thanks..............I really needed to read an optimistic post today, no sarcasm intended.......your post raised my spirit for a moment!
  5. Does IU have the fortitude to win this game? From where I am looking from, count me as a doubter. The tournament seems like a pipe dream now!
  6. To me the free throw shooting is more troubling. Coach was a good free throw shooter when he played, so???. To me it's inexplicable, but must be put down to mental preparation.
  7. To give full context here is the w/l breakdown, overall then conference. 1. 20-13, 9-7 2. 17-14, 7-9 3. 26-11, 10-6 4. 27-9, 13-5 5. 25-8, 14-4 6. 24-8, 15-3.
  8. Maybe.............but have you ever tried not to laugh when someone says something funny?
  9. Can anyone tell me why my sentences have spaces..........it looks ridiculous!
  10. Yes, absolutely! I remember watching the Kentucky/Indiana all star series. It was always a great game and a great time You had players from Kentucky playing who went to UK , and players from Indiana who went to IU, and continued their rivalry at the next level. It was VERY regional, and I enjoyed it immensely. That all star series hasn't been competitive for about 2 decades. Further, you would be pressed to find anyone from the state of Kentucky actually playing on UK's team anymore. Which is why I don't mind us not playing UK during the season any longer, just not the same meaning. College basketball is the last athletic event I watch now. When I was a child I watched every sport, even tennis and hockey. 'The Big Red Machine' in baseball, the 'ABA Pacers', Bengals and the Bears, before the Colts, the Racers, etc. etc. But, that was then.............I began to cut what I watched after Michael Jordan punched Reggie Miller, and Reggie got kicked out of the game while Jordan got to stay. I find most athletic competitions to be ANYTHING but competitive!
  11. I believe, although I have no evidence for this opinion other than SSDD, that 2, and maybe 3, and possibly even 4 guys on this team think they know more than the coaching staff. If what I believe is the case, there is NOTHING that will turn this season around. Bench em, and take whatever lumps come our way!
  12. I will still follow them, but I think 2 decades of looking for some semblance advancement is not unreasonable. Although, upon having a couple of days now to reflect, I can see that injuries have caused our best players to play more than they should. I am not abandoning the Hoosiers, yet, but I am getting to that point!
