  1. I don't know either... But I do think we, as IU fans, become obsessed with keeping kids happy enough to stay, especially the in state kids... I'm afraid with the new transfer rules it's inevitable that some kids are going to transfer each year for more playing time.
  2. Baylor and Gonzaga both only had 6 players that averaged over 20 mpg last year and both had 9 or less (Baylor had 9, Gonzaga 7) that averaged double digit minutes. I think Coach Woody has his work cut out for him in deciding who gets those minutes, that's for sure...
  3. Wouldn't "Bad Brad" be an unusual moniker for a 70 year old to pick? I mean "Bran Brad" I could see...
  4. I don't know how revealing this is because of the differences between the college game and the pros, but in his 9 head coaching seasons in the NBA Coach Woodson pretty much stuck to a 7–8 man rotation of players that played at least half of the game. Of course there are different considerations in the college game, but I think that provides at least a sliver of insight...
  5. Very first post on their board says it all!
  6. Just a reminder... The sun don't shine on the same dog's ass every day...
  7. I'll just say this... Last year the predicted order of finish for the top 8 in the B1G by Lindy's was... Wisconsin Iowa Illinois Michigan State Ohio State Rutgers Indiana Michigan Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports had them like this... 1. Iowa 2. Wisconsin 3. Illinois 4. Michigan State 5. Rutgers 6. Ohio State 7. Indiana 8. Michigan 9. Purdue 10. Maryland 11. Penn State 12. Minnesota 13. Nebraska 14. Northwestern Actual order of finish... Michigan Illinois Iowa Purdue OSU Wisconsin Rutgers Maryland MSU Indiana Penn St Northwestern Minnesota Nebraska Notice anything? Based on the 2019-2020 standings, they had totally ignored Michigan...Who had brought in Grad transfers Mike Smith (PG) and Chaundee Brown (SG/SF) and landed an impact Freshman (Dickinson)...The other crucial parts of their team (Livers, Brooks, Wagner, and Davis) were already there... Purdue was underrated too.... I'm just saying...we've added 3 grad transfers that addressed need (shooting, frontcourt depth), and what I think is an impact freshman...Plus the maturation/development of the players we already had here...I see a lot of parallels... I guess the wildcard is Coach Woody...And I'm very optimistic on his ability to coach college kids and win at a high level in the B1G... I say underrate us at your peril...
  8. Just an observation from last year... I thought Galloway was a much better on the ball defender than Leal, even though at times he was overmatched... I thought Leal did a good job in the passing lanes and anticipation though that didn't really fit into Archie's defensive scheme from what I've read... Coach Woody seems to embrace both good man up defense and playing for turnovers...it will be interesting to see how he uses each kid...
  9. Game 2 1959 World Series, Al Smith gets a beer...
  10. I think he will... When I see something like this list, and being it's Inside the Hall, I sometimes think they want so badly to give the appearance of objectivity, they lean away from picking IU players...
  11. Right now, either Xavier Johnson or Kopp... But by the end of the year it'll be Tamar Bates...
  12. Then stick to science...we lag behind in that subject anyway (24th in the world) One of the things that inhibits learning are distractions. Look, you can make a difference by treating each student equally and with respect. That's the way we should treat each other anyway, regardless of sexual orientation, skin color, politics, or religion. Respect each other's beliefs even if they conflict with your own. Kids bully for many reasons. I was always the youngest in my class, so I fielded my share. If you fight back, they stop... When you inject anything controversial into the classroom, your distracting from the job at hand, and giving kids a reason for conflict.
  13. I love the part in that video where Conan says, "Do something with that, you freak!" Norm: Challenge accepted...
  14. I asked an old NCO I had in the USAF who had just come back from Korea (remote tour) what the hardest adjustment coming back to his family was... "Trying to tell your wife why she needs a penicillin shot for your bladder infection."
  15. One of the funniest interviews you'll ever see...
  16. Cancer took him.. Sad...he was a very funny guy...
  17. So if another teacher put a Blue Lives Matter flag in their classroom would you be ok with that? Classrooms are for teaching subjects like reading, science, and math...to me, anything beyond the American and State flag should be avoided...
  18. Not too bad...a little windy, a little rainy here in the Greater Splendora Metro Area...
  19. Lydell's back field mate at Penn State was no slouch either... Penn State always produced quality running backs (except Bears draft pick Curtis Enis, of course) but the only QB that I can think of from the Nittany Lions that had even a modicum of success in the NFL is Kerry Collins... Surprising when you look at the QBs that have historically come out of Pennsylvania...
  20. Had to put old girl down today...we'd had a tumor taken off her chest in May, but it was growing back and split her incision...they found 4 more tumors in her and she was in pain...good girl, very laid back like most Labs... I'll miss her...
  21. Looks like an emaciated samurai...
