    Do you know how many finalists are being considered? If this one (that you're pretty sure we'd love) doesn't get it, will you be able to reveal who it was? Ugh...so many questions!!

    This is certainly interesting. And could be amazing. Could also be a disaster. Could be bad optics. I think I'm all for it.
  3. Completely agree here. I live in Nashville, have several close friends that are Vandy grads and fans and I was 100% pulling for Michigan. The Big Ten has gotten much better in baseball but a national title for the conference would have been huge. Full disclosure, I've lived down here long enough to take in a little too much Joe SEC fan. I'll never cheer for any SEC team to win at anything, especially against a Big Ten team.
  4. I thought the ball 3 was most definitely a ball. It looked like it was at least a foot off the plate on TV, maybe more. I would not have been surprised if it was called a strike, but it definitely looked like a ball. (Side note, these games were my annual reminder as to why I have a hard time watching a lot of college baseball as the strike zone seems to consistently be called only marginally better than little league.) The bummer for me is I have yet to see the last pitch. My stream cut out and went to a blue screen, then to the ESPN logo for several minutes right before the pitch. It didn't come back until the teams were separated in the outfield. I didn't know until last night that it was a controversial call and there was a bit of a ruckus? Is there video available anywhere? I tried to watch the replay stream and got the same result.
  5. Best case scenario. No matter what we were going to have to beat Louisville if we were going to advance. I’d rather have to do it once, not twice.

    (2019) SF Trendon Watford to LSU

    My completely uneducated opinion.....LSU. It appears to be the only one he bought a specific size fitted hat.

    2020 General Recruiting Thread

    What about other grad transfers? They wouldn't impact '20 scholarship availability and we have certainly have room and needs to fill. Are we set with Brunk or do you see the staff pursuing others in the grad transfer market?

    It’s that time of year again....

    The only thing worse is taking a WHOLE DAY off from checking the board, coming back to see 2 new pages on the Anthony Harris thread that is 99% arguing over who ruined Robert Johnson's 3-point shot.

    2019 April Evaluation Period

    Sheesh, man. And Archie took Dayton to the Elite 8. Dayton isn't a basketball wasteland but he took them to as many NCAA tournaments in his tenure than they had been to in the previous 25 years. And the single point of why we look at Bennett and some other coaches records during their first few years is to show that there are GREAT examples of elite level coaches who had very unspectacular starts to their current coaching positions. Therefore it would be ridiculous to write Archie off at this point. Whew....it may be time to dive head first into baseball season.....or like....yoga.

    Ah, got it. That's the part I was missing. Thought I read otherwise, but that makes sense. So its sounds like there are two main options for declaring. With or without an agent. With an agent you have to go through the draft and can only return if undrafted (and it sounds like you have to have participated in the combine).

    It probably has a lot to do with the rules changing. For the past couple of years you could declare and still come back after getting feedback. Now you can even hire an agent to go through the process, get the feedback, and still come back if you cut ties with the agent. You can even wait to see if you get drafted and if you don't, still come back (the way I understand it). If you're an underclassmen and have a chance at the NBA, there is nothing to lose by declaring.

    2019 Off-Season IU Roster News and Moves

    I was a student during the 2002 run. It was spring break in PCB during the first weekend of the tourney, then the sweet 16/elite 8 the next weekend, then final four weekend (was lucky enough to get my name drawn in the lottery for 2 tickets so my roommate and I drove down to ATL), then little 5 week/weekend after that. It was an amazing/thrilling/exhausting roller coaster month that I'll never forget. No clue what my grades ended up being that semester....

    Don't the rules now state you can even sign with an agent to help with the process but still pull your name and return? I don't think Romeo does this, just thought I heard that somewhere.

    2019-2020 Basketball Schedule

    I've been wondering this too. There are like 74 holiday tournaments. How are never involved in any of them? Granted, many are not that desirable but between the Preseason NIT, the Maui, the one in the bahamas, puerto rico, Vegas, more that I can't think of right now....do we specifically avoid these? It would be a great opportunity for quality wins.
  15. This was the biggest thing I noticed. I didn't watch all of them last night, but I saw far too many smiles. Almost like they were relieved it was over. And the player who Chris (I think) is referring to.....seemed like could not have cared less.
