    Only if it stays on one topic for too long.

    So which SEC school will Urban Meyer be coaching next season? To be honest, I will believe O$U is going to fire him when they actually do it.

    It wasn’t that crowded. It’s just not my thing.

    Holiday World. To be fair if I have to go to one, this is the one I would choose. It’s just that even the best ones are still not my thing. Of my two kids, I’m getting the feeling my boy is starting to take after me. He was ready to go long before most.

    That is exactly how I get through it. Part of the problem was we stayed way too long for our kids ages due to my in laws. Kind of frustrating.

    I know I am probably in the minority, but I hate amusement parks. I want the last 12 hours of my life back.

    I knew all three had been. I thought I herad Dakich say during a game the other night he wasn’t anymore. I didn’t see him today, but I wasn’t able to sit and focus on the game.

    TBT on ESPN

    At the first stoppage of play under four minutes to go in the game, the game clock is turned off. At that point the target score is established which is seven points more than the team in the lead has. The first team to that score wins. So if the score was 73-70 at that first under four stoppage, the first team to 80 wins however long that takes. The theory behind it is to eliminate the endless fouling that happens at the end of some games. Like I said, it’s an interesting idea for some summer television filler basketball, but I hope it stays there.

    Anyone else watching any of this? A team with Jordan Hulls is on now. I like how some teams are basically alumni teams for some schools, e.g. Boeheim’s Army. I would love to see an IU alumni team in the future. This Elam ending is an interesting idea, and okay for the TBT, but I never want to see it in college basketball.

    To those of you who are grandparents, don’t sugar up the grandkids at 7:00 at night if you aren’t prepared to be the ones to get them to bed. 🤬😡🤬😡🤬😡

    Surely there is an easier way to get Patrick Ewing’s autograph.

    Who starts?

    I am in agreement with you on McRoberts. I said he holds his starting spot for a while though because Arch seems to take his time inserting freshman into the starting line up. I know we only have last year to go on, but this board was wanting Al and Smith starting a number of games before they did.
