Sounds good.  I hope he doesn't do the sleeve/hat act (especially with the fake out move) - always struck me as corny and showboating.  I'll happily settle for a short & sweet "Thank you all for coming here today.  After careful consideration of these 3 fine programs I've decided to play at Indiana University".

"I've decided to play at Indiana University"

As long as he says that, he could have a circus for all I care. :D

"Guess where my first away game was my rookie year? Indiana. When I was introduced, I got a standing ovation.

That’s love. I felt at home.

I can’t tell you how special it feels when you think about how in only a few years, you can go from nobody knowing how to pronounce your name, to 20,000 people chanting it in unison. And I was on the opposing team.

It was like that every time I came back. If I was playing for Orlando, Oklahoma City, it didn’t matter. If I ever went out in Indiana I was embraced by the people. Everyone remembered the years I played in college and talked about them like I was still on the team. Even when I was away, I was tied to Indiana."

First off, love Victor.  If Tom Crean did nothing else for this program, bringing that guy here would be enough.  That whole team just seemed to "get it".  Crean, for whatever reason, could never get another group together like that.

That right there is the best recruiting pitch for kids coming here.  You are not getting that in Nashville, you may get it in Lawrence, but you play here, you always have a home.

So true that Romeo wouldn't get that in Nashville and while he may get that in Kansas, there's not much reason (or time for that matter with the length of the NBA season) for Romeo to go back to the state of Kansas if he played at KU. He's definitely coming back to Indiana to play against/for (how awesome would that be?) the Pacers and he seems to love his hometown of NA so I would imagine he would spend part of his offseasons there as well.

And O.G.?

Watching OG in game 1 of the playoffs make it hurt that much more that the Pacers passed on him for TJ freaking Leaf. Granted, McMillan would have had to play him and I'm not sure of his stance on playing rookies.

I do think Leaf will be solid... but, yes... we made a mistake there. Literally the only front office mistake we made last offseason. Pritchard is our MVP.

I was hoping he'd just say, "I'm Romeo Langford and I'm a Hoosier."  Give them something to play on the screen at the football games.

Honestly though, he can do it however he wants. I just hope, for Romeo's sake, he and his family enjoy the whole process as much as they can.

The HOT take which I’m most sick of hearing by Vandy (primarily) and KU fans: if Romeo chooses anywhere other than IU, they are worried for his physical safety. **** off ‘Dores. Face defeat with respect... should be used to it by now

I don't believe Trey Lyles, Gary Harris, etc.  get standing ovations when they play the Pacers.  

And they're hometown guys.  But I'm sure Yogi does.

Yeah, that's just stupid.  I don't think there's any record of assault against a Mr. Basketball that didn't select IU and there have been plenty to test that theory.

Any word on when Romeo is supposed to sit down with his parents and make his decision? I can't imagine him waiting another 13 days to figure it out/ contact the coaching staffs.

I have a suspicion that he's already done that.

And this is coming one week after Dak said Romeo was NOT coming to IU.  As I have been saying for quite some time... Dak is like a Willow Tree, blowing in the wind.

And Dan's latest tweet about IU fan's will be excited on April 30th,  is Dak being Dak.... covering his behind, so that when he is wrong, he can still say he was right.

Hey Dan... Maybe Steve Alford will make it to IU........ someday.

One of the members dropped an F-bomb while discussing the pettiness of Vandy's fans. I agreed with the sentiment, but edited it when I quoted him.^_^  Looks like his original post was edited after my quote.

Thank you I thought it might have been something petty like making fun of someone that made a comment about us having the IQ of a banana or something like that. :nansplit::jumprope:
