  1. Brad Davidson? By himself??? Not sure he can beat Purdue by himself, but maybe if Tyra plays there'd be a better chance.....just sayin.
  2. I don't understand why people are uncomfortable that he may have called some guys out. Are we worried that he hurt somebody's feelings? My opinion is that if you don't want to be publicly called out, don't do anything to be called out for. I respect TJD for saying this stuff, I think it's the leadership we've been missing for so long. This is his last shot at this thing, and if he takes a "with me, or against me" attitude, that's alright by me. I recently saw Eli Manning talking about walking into the locker room as a rookie and wanting to win, not for himself, but for the veterans in the locker room who hadn't won before. And then later, guys wanted to win for him so he could have 1 more SB win than his brother. Everyone in the IU locker room should be trying to send TJD out on a high note, that should be the focus.
  3. I'm not piling on, and this is in no way directed at Scott, but this reminded me of a funny saying one of my former bosses had: "If everywhere you go smells like dog s#!t, you should probably check your own shoes".
  4. Clearly you haven't been watching IU basketball in recent years. Especially the end of the Miller years....
  5. Riiiiight. That's what Matt Haarm's told all of the PUke chicks too
  6. Great....that means he'll go 8 of 9 from 3 and 15 of 17 from the fouls line against the Hoosiers....can't wait....🤬
  7. I understand that you think people are worth whatever they can get, and on some level I agree with you, but it also assumes that cash is king and nothing else matters. Is Nigel Pack who puts a ball through a hoop (sometimes) really "worth" more than my neighbor the firefighter? Modern society has a perverted sense of value, and it's why I don't buy athletic jerseys any more. It's why I don't hardly follow professional sports any more, and it appears that I may not follow college sports much longer. From my perspective this NIL thing is really placing the "I" before team, and that really does go against what most of us were taught growing up. I understand why some people are struggling to accept it. If you had an adult daughter, and someone was willing to pay her a million dollars for sex, clearly she is worth it since someone is willing to pay, but would you advise her to take it?
  8. Yeah, because ESPN clearly has no bias....
  9. So, what happens when a player signs a deal with, say Nike, but that player's school has a deal with say, Adidas, and all of the Jerseys have Adidas logos? Does Nike allow the player to wear Adidas product? Does the player have to transfer to a Nike school?
  10. pretty sure #3 and #7 are the same person...
  11. And here in lies the scholarship solution if a problem arises. I hear the NCAA is currently in emergency meetings. Based on the current political/social environment, they are going to make it a violation to have a Kopp and a Gunn on the same team. Someone's gotta go folks.
  12. I googled "Double D" to see who you were talking about....pretty interesting....I'll probably be off the board for awhile.....
  13. In no particular order: 5Fouls marital advice Bluegrass' family tree Scott's sense of nostalgia What a "True Fan" is Purdue's Helms banner Substitution patterns
  14. I'm really not sure what to make of this. No one on this board pines for the "Old School IU" than you Scott, and i don't think there is anyone on our roster who better represents the "Old School IU" than Trey. I firmly believe Coach Knight would've loved Trey Galloway, and quite frankly, I'm shocked you of all people don't.
  15. I agree with this. When Woodson said he was hard on his point guards, I thought the writing was on the wall. Lander seems like a great kid, but I've never been convinced he is one to thrive under "hard" coaching. I think if he finds the right situation with the right coach, he can really be something special.
  16. Don't forget that Coach Knight shot someone in a hunting accident, and in Scott's eyes, that's murder.....
  17. Looks like dbmhoosier got another screen name. There is a certain segment of our fanbase that is constantly suggesting that with every misstep, Woodson will or should be fired. What is amusing is that many of these same folks are the ones who advocated for Calipari, Pitino, Pearl, and so on. So is that just a short term memory loss, or is it a sliding scale of ethics?
  18. I heard there was a body in the trunk.....
  19. So using your logic, he should be charged with murder, because he could've killed someone, even though he didn't?
  20. I have never in my life seen anyone root against all aspects of a university the way you do. Is it personal? Did you apply and not get into IU? Did you go to IU and have something traumatizing happen? What is your story?
  21. Early in my time at IU I had a Chevelle with a 454. One day coming down the hill on 446 towards lake Monroe, I floored it, and tipped just over 105 as I went across the lake. I got scared and backed out of it. Those were fun times.
  22. We probably have a thousdand hours of video of missed wide open threes this year alone....show him that.
  23. In most places that would be the kiss of death. WAIT!!! Did he give him the "Fist" speech?!?!?1
