  1. Look what you did!!! You even mention "is Smith a 3 or not" and AALLLLLL of this happens. Way to go!! 🤣🤣
  2. OMG, if you just started the "is Smith a "3" or not argument again. 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤣🤣
  3. Aaannnndddddd que all the haters....."wrist didn't seem to bother him there" as they eat their mini-wheats (un frosted) before they push their ford truck to work.....up hill.....both ways....in 2 feet of snow.
  4. Ummmm.... @Stlboiler23, i think he got Purdue's cheerleaders by mistake. 😵😵
  5. Oh @Hoosierhoopster....who uses stats to make/back up a rational argument or position. Okay Boomer 🙄. 😂😂
  6. @BGleas, going to respond to you here as well.... There was no disrespect meant at all toward Al. He has earned, up to this point, the right to start, but I just can't see Lander reclassifying to sit. The 3 "big" lineup we played with a lot last year wasn't like putting a saddle on a bronco, it was like cutting one of its legs off. Things got so clogged up we just couldnt do anything. So, I like Smith at the 4. I just dont think a healthy Rob will sit so that leaves a spot open for, in my mind, Al, Hunter, Franklin or freshman. In keeping with the get old/stay old theme I wouldnt think one of the other freshman would out everything one of the other 3. Franklin has been a lot more up and down than Al so I think that rules him out. So BGleas, to your point, I think with Lander and Rob with the ball, Smith running the baseline and TJD working the paint, Hunter might actually be better served as a 3 n D guy with that group rather than possibly being relied on to be a ball handler/play maker off the bench....which is where Al's strengths are.
  7. With everyone playing at 100% and up to their potential, i agree this is our best mix of talent. If Hunter doesnt improve on where he ended last season tho, im not sure you can take Al out if the starting 5....even tho I do like him in the Vinny Johnson role.
  8. To ALL IU mens basketball players not named Lander, Jackson-Davis or Brunk: you best get to working on your outside shot because you will be getting a lot of open looks. If you can not make said open looks you might find yourself sitting on the sidelines with a metaphoracle foot in your *. P.S. keep playing tough as nails defense too. Can't forget about that or else see above ☝️.
  9. After a decade of saying how easy our schedule has been before B1G play, people are going to be blowing up Hostess n Little Debbie begging for a cupcake this year. 🧁🧁🤣🤣🤣
  10. To me, you just decribed Remy Abell. Not regarding his game or skill set or anything, but just what he looks like right now. 🤷‍♂️
  11. Ive seen this theory presented many times: it's that the great ones don't understand why you can't do what they could. If it's shooting, passing, rebounding, work ethic....whatever. Using Bird as an example. When he was still GM for the Pacers, there was a story, or quote might be better, of him walking on the court during a down time in practice and start shooting. Paul George said it was like watching a fish practice swimming. Dude was 60 and in dress clothes and was the best shooter in the building.
  12. But the ones paying will still be paying to get the best players. If kids 1-20 in a class go pro, then 21-40 will have bags of cash, money and hooker thrown at them at every turn.
  13. Im sure the mixed gender fooseball team at each school will lose one scholorship total over the next 10 years and they will have to start paying for items from the snack bar.
  14. Ya, he said he was married. Once that happens all hope is lost, regardless of where she went to school. 🤣
  15. Not sure if or how many of you have seen "Hook" but I would say we are more likely to have (left side) "Ge-Ron-I" (right side) "Moooooooeee". The "e's" are so @Stlboiler23 knows its not a roll call for PU coeds. 🐄🐄 🤣🤣
  16. C'mon CC, it's a discussion board....we ALL think we know more than CAM! Lol 🤣🤣
  17. I would think, if thats the case, that it would be between IU and OSU since Creighton is being lumped in with the schools that just got a letter from the NCAA. 🤷‍♂️
  18. While it would be funny.....isn't that the scene where a reporter kept calling Jim Everett "Chris" and Jim got super pissed about it after asking him to stop several times?? 🤔 Found it.....
  19. Sooooo.....is this plan B to Aminu?? Meaning, "We want you to be a part of IU, but there are other fish in the sea for us." ? 🤔🤔
  20. Teach him to juggle and have somebody throw eggs to him to catch w/o breaking. I could see a Mo Allie Cox-ish transition.
  21. Whats this kids motor like? Does the wheel in the Skyy keep on turnin?? 😏
  22. Thank you. We are doing as well as can be expected. Kids are going stir crazy bit if thats the worst thing we have to deal with we're all good......and bourbon is like hand sanitizer for your insides so, cheers! 🥃🥃
  23. @BGleas......what he said. 👆👆 Sorry to hear that. I hope you and yours are staying safe and in good health tho.
  24. I nominate our very own @BGleas for the job!! 😃👍🍻
  25. @DC2345 and @dgambill please refrain from pointing out the obvious during these difficult times. Not all of us are fluent in math. 🤣🤦‍♂️ My bad guys!
