We've talked about this before. Personally, I feel the shooter part is more important than the big, but if we're getting a shooter and a big in the same package, then I'm good. We just need to make sure we can space the floor around Langford and Morgan (should they both be here). 

Yeah we have and I would trust your judgement more than mine in this system because I haven’t fully ‘gotten it’ yet. It’s kind of ironic for me because I’m all for the new positionless style and always valued guard/wing play over inside play in the modern game but DD scares me and that’s a lot of pressure on Morgan to add O and also stay out of value trouble at the ‘5’. 

We’re finally ‘blessed’ and we shouldn’t need to worry about player personnel decisions because we’ve got the right guy in here. Usually I’d be stressed and unsure but now I’m totally fine with the types of players we’re picking up in ‘marginal’ spots like this and trust the staff completely.

Wonderful news. If that's the case, then Damon or Vic would be contenders for the special guest given that they may have told Archie they'd like to do something special for Romeo if he did choose IU and Archie passed that along to Romeo when he committed.

Don’t think it’s Vic, he flew out for the week tobe with his trainer.

Dang, Vic was working out this morning at Bankers life.

I'm guessing Sherron Wilkerson or Pat Graham? They are the last two Indiana Mr. Basketball players from the area to commit to Indiana. 

It would be really cool if it was either of them or Damon Bailey.

Don't know if just wishful thinking I did gear Vic.

Not saying you're wrong, but I would find it hard to believe that he would have agreed to come prior to now. If the Pacers had won yesterday, they would have been traveling to Toronto no later than today for Game 1 tomorrow.

Okay, I probably shouldn’t leak this, but I know you guys will keep it to yourselves.

I may be the special guest.  I was told (confidentially of course) that if everyone else, alive or dead, who ever used the letters “I” and “U” in the same sentence, turned them down, that I would be their first choice.

Bursting with pride!

Sometimes these special guests things get twisted around.  I believe Tim Langford, a pastor, Jim Shannon, and others are speaking before Romeo.  So that could be all it is --- just the speakers before him.

Anyone else thinking the special guest could be Haris Mujezinovic?

Only if Uwe Blab is unavailable...

I'd also be happy with the manager of the Taco Bell in Sellersburg who did this!

I’m thinking it’s CAM plus the pastor, Jim Shannon, etc. I doubt it’s anything like Vic or Damon but we’ll see. Vic went to train in Miami anyway. He texted his trainer and said let’s get to work 20 minutes after the loss and the trainer said he’s sending a jet.
