Over under on how long it takes someone to bust out a Larry Bird comparison? 

I said Kim Zurcher early on in the Luke Brown parade.  I stand by my comparison.

For those that don't know:  

Zurcher was a kid I played against in HS.  He found his way to Minnesota.

Serviceable top reserve/spot starter as an upperclassman? Fair enough.  I think that's probably Brown's ceiling.

I just get the vibe that Brown's parents are not helping.  At. All.

What was the name of that kid who was...I believe briefly at Bloomington South, and was supposed to play for IU but ended up transferring all over the country (BYU? UCLA?) but never really amounted to much?

I hope Luke doesn't have parents like that kid did.

Matt Carlino. He was all over the place.

I see he played at BYU (3 seasons) and Marquette (1 season) but he had committed to IU before decommitting. I think he committed to UCLA and, I think, even enrolled there before transferring.

From what I remember he was all over the place in HS, too. He was in AZ when he committed to IU and then moved to Bloomington. I think he might have been at multiple HS in AZ.

He was a double digit scorer each year in college, which isn't bad, but seemed like a headcase.

I hear his Dad is a real gem.

Cue the Star Wars references, but "there's a name I haven't heard in a long, long time". 

Going just by his stat line, we could have used him.  Especially that 42% from 3 his senior year.  But I agree....had headcase (whether him or parental) written all over him.

Saw Andy Katz put out his first bracket and had IU as a 5 seed playing the 12 seed Cleveland State.  I hope for a different outcome this time if we play them.

Seriously? 🤣

That’s nothing more than a slight nutshot to IU fans, just to see if we’re paying attention. Who’s in the pod opposite us? Maryland and Pepperdine?
