  1. It's a good story only if Bronny is an NBA-level player, and deserves to be in the league based on his ability. If so, it's awesome. We'll see James-to-James passes for dunks and the crowds will go wild. Or, he will be the privileged child of a billionaire father, who is on the team only because of nepotism. He'll be a Kardashian.
  2. 10-foot sturgeon caught in Idaho. Story below pic. https://www.nbc15.com/2022/08/13/whoa-man-sets-state-record-with-catching-10-foot-white-sturgeon-officials-say/
  3. We've got the best basketball jerseys in the conference, according to this. They give a nice shout out to the candy stripes, too. https://www.landgrantholyland.com/2020/11/25/21717749/ohio-state-news-big-ten-tip-off-best-in-the-b1g-ranking-basketball-jerseys
  4. Indiana did not make 2023 guard Elmarko Jackson's top-11, per TheDailyHoosier.com I guess it's time to . . . write him off. Ha! See what I did there? I'll see myself out.
  5. 1. Oh, what could have been with Kelvin Sampson and Indiana. 2. Juwan Howard needs more proof. 3. For those who don't know, #22 Leonard Hamilton used to be one of the country's best recruiters, when he was as Kentucky. Long ago.
  6. New highlights, with a visit to IU coming on Sept 23. https://www.insidethehall.com/2022/08/17/video-class-of-2024-forward-liam-mcneeley-summer-highlights/
  7. Zion uses this story to promote his new Naruto shoe release (see link). To tap into video game character popularity so he can make more money. Nothing wrong with that. Marketing-wise, it's very smart. But it's not about inspiring people to overcome problems. Plus, Naruto didn't weight 300 pounds. https://sneakernews.com/2022/04/23/jordan-zion-williamson-naruto-release-info/
  8. Wife: Now that we’re married, you can get rid of those golf clubs. Me: You’re starting to sound like my ex-wife. Wife: I didn’t know you were married before. Me: I wasn’t.
  9. Even Zion Williamson is no longer Zion Williamson.
  10. Elvis played in Madison, WI in June 1977. He died 7 weeks later. Here's a trivia story about how he broke up a gas station fight while he was here. https://www.roadsideamerica.com/story/25273
  11. You're welcome to come up to Wisconsin any time. This is a typical day for us.
  12. Highlight video from The Daily Hoosier, posted today. https://www.thedailyhoosier.com/video-2023-iu-basketball-target-arrinten-page-summer-highlight-reel/
  13. Article today about 2023 Indiana prospects. No real news, but some interesting comments. https://www.insidethehall.com/2022/08/15/mid-august-update-2023-indiana-basketball-recruiting-board/
  14. Everyone knew they would run a back door play. They still won.
  15. Most of this thread's tech talk is incomprehensible to me.
  16. I read about a guy who supposedly got an entire roll of 1955 double-die pennies from the bank. Uncirculated. He recognized what he had. Not sure what happened after that. I've never had one, but always thought it was a cool coin.
  17. I got a red seal 1963 $2 bill from the bank this summer. Circulated, so it's only worth about $2 or maybe $3. Still cool to see, though. Image is from the internet. When I was a kid, I remember getting a silver certificate every now and then. And silver coins all the time - as many as you wanted from the bank for face value.
  18. Summer highlights and a short after-visit Q & A. Whenever I see highlights, I'm always disappointed if the kid isn't at least as good as Larry Bird in his MVP Celtics prime. Ideally, better than Bird. Ha. https://www.insidethehall.com/2022/08/12/video-class-of-2025-forward-trent-sisley-summer-highlights/
  19. Mickey Mantle card may reach $10 million: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/mlb/article-11106203/Mickey-Mantle-baseball-card-shatters-record-bidding-hits-7-62m-expected-reach-10m.html
  20. I agree. As much as I carp about shooting, Woodson's first season was like sailing a ship and repairing it at the same time. Last in free throws. Bad. First in team defense. Outstanding. I do expect us to build from that.
  21. Will our outside shooting improve? Last season out of the 14 BigTen teams, we were: 11th out of 14 in 3-point percentage. Last in 3-point shots made. Last in free throw percentage. Our defense was very good. Overall FG% was ok (6th). Progress was made. But who will shoot from the outside this season, and will it be any better? https://bigten.org/stats.aspx?path=mbball&year=2021
  22. This is a great way to collect restraining orders, too.
  23. PGA TOUR Commissioner Jay Monahan resigns. Will accept $100 million to become LIV Commissioner. "Upon careful consideration, I've decided the Saudi money is better than the near-poverty $4 million I made from the cheapo PGA. Also, suddenly, they are a wonderful country. Deeply misunderstood. We will march into the future together. As long as their money keeps coming my way."
