    On his radio show but he is couching it with "may" and "might" and "don't be surprised" language. Said he heard it from a friend who asked to remain anonymous.

    IU hosts Marquette in 2018-19

    Oops - my bad for excluding the ticket board on the site I am posting on! Consider me red-faced.

    IU hosts Marquette in 2018-19

    Regarding tickets....this game will be a sellout as it will be part of the season ticket package and will not be a student break game. So, unless you have swag at MU and can get tix from that very slim allotment, you're looking at the secondary market. I suggest you keep your eye on a couple IU ticket forums as game day nears. IU season ticket holders will not have their tickets "in hand" until a couple weeks before the opening game (date tbd) so don't expect tix to be showing up on ticket boards until a few weeks before the game. Here are links to boards to watch: https://247sports.com/college/indiana/Board/Ticket-Exchange-BB-106112 https://indiana.forums.rivals.com/forums/ticket-exchange-forum.14/ Best of luck and Go Hoosiers!!!!!!!
  4. Well, hopefully you have maintained your contributions to the Varsity Club. That at minimum will keep your priority points growing. There will certainly be some who have opted out of ongoing contributions due to tax law change making these contributions totally non-deductible. Once opted out, they are pretty much starting over from a priority point perspective. Not to be overlooked however is the "Romeo effect" and the timing of his commitment. Some (many?) who may have otherwise opted out now still have the chance to re-up prior to contribution deadlines. Regardless of where your seats end up, take solace in knowing that you will be "IN THE HALL" for what appears to be a resurgence in the IU Basketball program! See you in Bloomington! Go Hoosiers!!!!!!!
  5. Got my "Premium Seating Preference" email this afternoon with a deadline of June 1 for confirming my intent to maintain premium seating and declare any seating change preferences I might wish to request. Here is the gist: Ed, Greetings from the IU Varsity Club! I am contacting you today about your preferences for your premium seating for the 2018-2019 men's basketball season. Your response to this email does not serve as your ticket renewal, simply your seat preference for next season. You should have an online ticket application that was sent on May 2nd and a paper application will be sent in early June. This past season, you held the following seats: 2017-2018 Seat Location: Section: 8, 4 Seats Due to high demand for premium seats, please submit your seating request by June 1, 2018. In addition the 2018/19 season ticket renewal has appeared in my on-line account. Based on an 18 game schedule (have to believe games will be added?) my price per season ticket is $828 or $46/game. Seems like it was $44/game last year but would have to dig out old app. Needless to say, there is likely a "Romeo" cost of living adjustment applied - LOL! Glad to pay it! Here is some info from the on-line ticket renewal application: RENEWAL DEADLINE: JUNE 29, 2018 Prices are based on a 18 game season package. The full schedule will be announced in early fall. Indiana University Priority Seating System information will be mailed with your priority point letter in late July or early August. A payment plan option is available, make the appropriate selection below. Ticket information for the Mini Series, Crossroads Classic (Bankers Life Fieldhouse, Indianapolis, IN) and the Big Ten Tournament (United Center, Chicago, IL) will be released at a later date. Renewable Items Description Quantity Price Amount Special Requests 2018-19 Indiana Basketball Season 4 $828 $3312 Premium Seat Option Men's Basketball Season Parking Pass Parking Information For the 2018-19 season, zone parking will be in place. Additional parking details will be displayed once "add to cart" below is selected. All zone choices will be filled using the IU Athletics Priority Point System. Select Payment Plan: Payment Plan Information First Payment Due: Upon receipt of renewal application (Deadline June 29, 2018) Second Payment Due: August 1, 2018 This payment will automatically be charged to the card submitted on the application. Payment options are pay in full now or split into 2 equal payments. No upcharge associated with 2 payment plan that I can see.
  6. Or Columbus! Dodging away at Nebraska could be a blessing too depending on how their roster works out with those testing waters.

    RIP Daryl Thomas

    Rink front left? Dolson to Archie's right. Steve Eyl center back row and Oliphant to his left? Sloan back row to right of photo? Maybe AT between Rink and Dolson and Todd Meier over their shoulders? bad lighting on photo so hard to identify.

    2002 Duke Game

    Sitting court level near the baseline in Rupp. Amazing how it turned into a home crowd for us and afterwards at a bar nearby all UK fans were congratulatuing us for taking out the evil duke. I was supposed to leave Lexington after the game to get home for my sister-in-law's wedding the next day. I called my wife after the victory and she just said "you want to stay for the next game don't you?'" I replied "Hell yeah - it's her second wedding, I went to the first one and we already gave her a toaster!" My wife laughed and said I should stay and that Brenda would understand. LOVELY! Went to the final 4 in Atlanta as well. Have a great story about getting my tickets lifted but that is a LONG story.

    Grad Transfers?

    With Calbert taking over Taylor may not be so interested in leaving?
  11. Bob Knight likes what he sees in IU basketball coach Archie Miller Teddy Bailey, Special to IndyStarPublished 10:44 p.m. ET Feb. 28, 2018 | Updated 7:26 a.m. ET March 1, 2018 (Photo: Troy Babbitt-USA TODAY Sports) CONNECTTWEETLINKEDINCOMMENTEMAILMORE BLOOMINGTON -- A mere 3 miles from the university he has sworn to never return to, Bob Knight visited once again Wednesday night to laugh with IU fans and reminisce. In a similar format to last year’s event at Bloomington North High School, the 77-year-old IU coaching legend was joined by moderator and longtime confidant Bob Hammel on stage at Bloomington South. Wednesday’s event was more intimate than last year’s, with attendance estimated at upward of 1,000. About 10 minutes late, Knight and Hammel were introduced to a standing ovation and spoke for nearly two hours. “For me, nothing was better when it comes to basketball than coaching in front of people rooting for Indiana,” Knight said. “That was one of the most interesting and enjoyable facets of my time, the reception those kids got from coaches and the fan base. I’m thankful to you folks for that.” More: Archie Miller is an unbending coach with unshakeable confidence More: Archie Miller is 10th-highest paid college hoops coach More: Archie Miller has 'got a job to do' for IU basketball From the start, though, it appeared Knight was much more interested in fielding questions from fans and Indiana residents -- rather than recall Big Ten referees and Purdue clashes. Many fans were interested in Knight’s upbringing and his opinions of certain relationships, from former players in Calbert Cheaney and Isiah Thomas to current IU coach Archie Miller. Knight commented on Miller’s hiring during last year’s event, but elaborated after seeing Miller coach his first-year Hoosiers to a 16-14 (9-9 Big Ten) record and No. 6 seed in the 2018 Big Ten tournament. Having experienced the same, Knight said he believes Miller will benefit from having so many good players from the state. Twitter Ads info and privacy “Patience is not something a lot of fans have,” Knight said. “But this kid (Miller) is going to do a good job. Why? Because he can coach. Most of the coaches I’ve known, can’t coach. You folks are going to appreciate him, but it ain’t gonna happen in a year.” Knight focused on his long-documented past -- speaking highly of his parents, facing respected coaches throughout the Big Ten, as well as memories coaching Michael Jordan for the United States in the 1984 Summer Olympics. But Knight was also asked his thoughts on the recent NCAA basketball allegations brought by the FBI, many of which have involved historical powerhouses and top talent. At first, Knight appeared to play dumb to the recent allegations that included a wiretap of Arizona head coach Sean Miller offering $100,000 to secure a player. This report has been questioned. Hammel clarified the recent news to Knight, saying “the rumor’s out, can you imagine this, that they’re paying prospects.” Join and get 1st Month Free Subscribe Now In true Knight fashion, he played to his audience and earned loud applause for responding with a smile, and “Sheesh, I better stay out of that one.” He did, however, give insight to the current nature of college basketball. “Back when I was coaching, and it’s kind of changed, but there were great coaches I liked and I could respect,” Knight said. “If you can’t do it within the rules, why do it? That’s the problem right now. Coaches aren’t dealing with the NBA, they’re dealing with the FBI. Which is a little bit different than the NBA. I’m all for the FBI.” It’s unclear as to whether Knight’s visits to Bloomington have become an annual gathering, or if Wednesday’s reunion was the last. Even if it needs the occasional reminder, Knight’s memory is still intact -- and so is his appreciation for IU fans and their passion for the Hoosiers throughout his 29 years in Bloomington. “I really enjoy the opportunity to talk to Indiana fans,” Knight said. “Please say thank you to your brothers, sisters, grandparents, family members and friends who watched our teams play. I’ve never appreciated people more than those who saw our groups play.” CONNECTTWEETLINKEDINCOMMENTEMAILMORE
  12. He dropped 17 on us in February 2016 as a freshman (and was a cocky bastard while doing it) and now is just another clown in their bench mob as a Junior. https://247sports.com/Player/Jack-McVeigh-78216
