  1. Or Columbus! Dodging away at Nebraska could be a blessing too depending on how their roster works out with those testing waters.

  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Grad Transfers?

    With Calbert taking over Taylor may not be so interested in leaving?
  6. 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
  7. 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

  9. In my opinion there is a decent chance that Wisconsin won't be the 10 seed. If they pull off a win at Northwestern tonight, which is not out of the question, they jump over NU to the 9 and NU would be the opponent for the 7 seed on Thursday in the BTT.
  10. With PSU loss we are back at 6 seed for the moment. They finish at Nebraska and we, of course, finish with OSU at home. Stay as the 6 and we may well meet OSU again on Friday assuming we dispense with Illinois/Rutgers winner. Finish in 7 and we get Wisconsin and then Purdue if we can handle Wisky. All based on if the BTT seedings were established as things stand today. I'm sure they won't but fun to consider anyway.
  11. She lives in Short North which borders German Village. My favorite restaurant in C-bus is Lindey's in German Village - used to do business meetings there. I worked at Lazarus after my undergrad at IU in 1976 and lived in Upper Arlington. Spent a good bit of time in German Village at Planck's, Diebold's, Schmidt's and, of course, the original Max & Irma's. Great stein-hoisting days for sure!
  12. Thanks mile. I've been lurking on the sites but not real active in posting. Retired at the end of 2017 so trying to figure out what to do with myself. I've decided to start by attending some away games in B-ball and football and may buy IU Baseball season tickets this year. UPDATE - as I was typing this response I got a call from the IU Ticket Office saying they have a ticket for me. It will be upper level but will be with other IU fans so I'll be headi ng to C-bus, OH. I have a daughter there so place to stay is covered. Go Hoosiers!!!!!!
  13. Thinking about heading over but want to sit among "friendly folk." eddy4iu@gmail.com
