    OT....I’m at a bar in Naples, Fl Was walking back from the pisser and a guy taps me on the shoulder. Understand I have an IU shirt on and he says “ so you couldn’t afford to go to Purdue?” I smiled and said thank you for keeping all the ugly girls out of IU”! They really are d-bags! And his wife had a PU shirt one! A$$-a-mucks they are! Understand I’m 60 yrs old ok? Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners

    If I Could Add...

    Any current B1G player to next year’s IU roster it would be: (fill in your choice) For me? Matt Haarms of PeeYeew Super lanky shot changer with inappropriate,spastic celebrations; doesn’t need the ball in his hands to be effective. Your choice? Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Happ. I hate him and Wisconsin, but imagine his interior D, and offensive presence for IU? Nasty. Drawback? A distinct lack of spastic celebrations.

    I’m not quite sure what an “A$$-a-muck” is, but somehow that seems spot on. Wish I was there to watch the mighty Nips slay the Purdooders in that bar. Hell, I wish I was in any bar with NaplesHoosier! Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Absolutely appreciate the info, and not trying to give you a hard time. Yes, these open gyms do happen all time, probably almost daily, and I’m doubting the info at all that many of the freshmen have been there for some runs with the team. I do doubt that there was any time of “walk through” that involved an actual lineup or the coaching staff. If there was, it was probably player driven just to teach some of the newer guys a set or two for the open gym. Unless the rules have changed, which is entirely possible as it’s been 20 years since I played, the coaches are not allowed in the gym for these open gym/pick up game sessions.

    It was Tim’s team. Absolutely asinine to think he didn’t know the value of the sponsorship, especially when the Adidas sources told WaPo that it was made known to the three shoes companies that Tim Langford wanted a grassroots team sponsored by the highest bidder. WaPo also says the quotes between Pitino and Adidas about Langford are supported by text messages he provided them. WaPo ends the article expressing that no one associated with the team is speaking nor validating the sponsorship nor the claimed donation to a non-profit, but there doesn’t appear to be any signs of significant cash windfalls for the parties involved based on publicly available information. The article ends with, not surprising, the news that Twenty Two Vision is no longer running a team. Overall, it’s story that uses a high profile recruit to draw attention to a complex underground system that helps shape college basketball, and further establishes the depth and complexity in solving the corruption associated with it. None of this fits your nor our fan base’s narrative, because it’s a negative story about our recruit. Doesn’t mean it isn’t both factual and relevant.

    Not sure how this is possible considering none of the freshmen are on campus.

    This. Locking down the borders means to not let the best players go elsewhere. There’s going to be in-state players that go out of state. But as long as IU gets the best players on a consistent basis, that’s the point. Some of you need to stop being so hypocritical

    Are the "open gyms" video taped for later review. It's hard to believe that the coaches don't get some kind of feedback about how those go. In other words, there are ways to be in the gym without "being in the gym".

    1) The best sources are the ones involved. Ricky P is arguably the best source on the planet. Not the smartest for putting this out there though. Very easy for a good attorney to pull this out and tear about his credibility when discussing what he does and does not recall. 2) I thought the article read dry and and factual. Professed ignorance is pretty plain commentary if they asked Tim directly about this. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Seeing tweets that Mike Davis may be the new head coach at Detroit who is now in its 8th week of its coaching search. Had also seen his name mentioned for the Houston job if Cell Phone Sampson bolted to the NBA.

    Not sure why there would be a walk through in May, or if it’s even within the rules for the coaches to be involved with something like that with the entire team this time of year? Not trying to give the poster a hard time, just seems unlikely. If it did happen, I fall into the category that doubts we start three freshmen, especially all in the backcourt, and also not sure if a walkthrough in May would really be any inidication of what the lineup might be in October/Nov.

    Because of what is going on in college basketball and it involves a player going to Indiana. Is it illegal? No. Is it a gray area the average person knows about? No. Did people read the article because of above? Yep. It did its job. Also, they aren’t just going off of Pitino’s word. They have his phone records. They quoted those more than him. Again nothing wrong with what the Langford’s did and I don’t necessarily fault them. But to act like it’s not relevant has more to do with our allegiance than anything. Plus they never said Indiana or Langford did anything wrong. It was more informative this was going on. Don’t understand the issue. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    I guess I just don't see 'the sound research'. Tim Langford running an Adidas backed AAU team was public knowledge. The main source going on record is someone suing Adidas who claims to not know anything going on at his own school.....so not sure why his word would be trusted on items going on elsewhere. I don't have any doubt that Adidas wanted Romeo Langford at an Adidas school. I'm not sure why it's considered news that a shoe company looks to keep players in their AAU 'stable' of schools.

    Except, it was good journalism. Sources willing to go on record, sound research, relevant, and not inflammatory. Our fans just don’t like it. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Bob Kravitz has an article up that repeats the Post's story with an added shot at CAM. He called Adidas Archie's best recruiter and praised Coach Crean for not playing the game to get top recruits. If what is going on is legal and breaks no rules, then I think it's a little unfair to call it dirty.
