  1. +1 For those that "can't stand the dribbling for 20 seconds", you'd be pulling your hair out watching the same for 35-40 seconds with a 45 second clock..
  2. And he could have continued to meet with players, attend local events but stay away from official functions. Agree, his health was the key factor, but something in his head finally said "It's time".
  3. On one hand, I've always supported the idea that you don't make a weak man strong by making a strong man weak. That said, I'm not going to complain if they hire the next John L Smith again either.
  4. RMK was invited to many, many team/player functions on campus over the years, and declined to attend. Something changed.
  5. He doesn't have to. But he is the closest thing RMK has to a successor. Where else to build your own legacy than in the place your mentor became an icon?
  6. Sure, I have a realtor's license. That'd get me hired at Memphis.
  7. A wound finally healed today. There's always going to be a scar, but nothing you can't look past. The General came home.
  8. Not an IU guy, but a Knight guy. And after today, once again, the line between the two is very, very thin.
  9. Still can't tell if it was pilot error or mechanical problems. May never know.
  10. If that's the way you see it, that's fine. The problem is you're dealing with two different systems of eligibility. The NCAA/NIT draws from the same pool of eligible teams. They'll never define it this way, but the NIT is a consolation tournament. The teams that weren't good enough to make it in the NCAAs go to the NIT. Classes are divided by nothing but size, not strength. It's not as if teams are divided into quadrants based on record, then each treated equally.
  11. Just means you're both old. *puts on cup*
  12. There's a few thousand Cincinnati Elder alumni that wouldn't argue with you one bit.
  13. 90% Fresno, 5% Cincinnati, 5% Field
  14. And now, 4x as many students have memories like that.
  15. Agreed. And I'd venture to say that the coaching staff has the same outlook. If he's interested, they'd be willing to listen. No guarantees, but no locked doors either.
  16. So why do it in football and not basketball? Indiana high school football had class champions since the early 70s?
  17. The other side of that coin is....you wind up with a very talented kid with something to prove.
  18. That's the minority though. The majority can't count to 3.
  19. I believe Planters is pulling this ad out of respect for the tragic death of Kobe. Proper action, IMO.
  20. Let's blame Lori Loughlin
  21. I'd take that every day and twice on Sunday.
  22. It's rare that a loss could be encouraging, but that wasn't the same team that got taken to the woodshed by Wisconsin. In a game where we couldn't have bought a call against an opponent that was white hot to start out, we stayed under control. We made outside shots. We took more smart shots than dumb ones. We kept the tempo up, but didn't rush. And that sequence of possessions where De'Ron and TJD traded buckets/assists was just gorgeous to watch. And a tip of the cap to De'Ron for that. He's always been a great passer out of the post, and he's apparently passing his craft on to TJD. They looked like mirrors of each other on those two plays. No, De'Ron won't ever be the player he could have been, but he's still having a positive impact....if only through teaching/coaching.
  23. The 24/8 second violations in tribute to Kobe were a brilliant idea.
  24. If anyone ever needs a lesson in rebounding, pull up a game from the early 90s that put Barkley against Rodman. It's mind blowing how well they could calculate the angles and timing, and be in just the perfect position.
