    You are correct. The source I used only listed the regular season results. My mistake.

    In football, IU has beaten Rutgers for the past three years. In IUBB, Rutgers did beat IU once last year and again in Crean's final season the year before.* However, IU won the last match up last year by 16 and are 6-2** against them since Rutgers joined the B1G. *And as @Uspshoosier pointed out again in 2018 in the B1G Tournament **6-3 including B1G Tournament games
  3. Update on my throwback Rose Bowl sweater. It arrived today. I believe this bodes well for our beloved Hoosiers come Saturday.

    Indiana Academics, etc

    While it certainly helps, I truly believe that where you go to school doesn't really indicate how intelligent you are or what opportunities you will have moving forward. Speaking strictly from the legal profession, I have worked with people that went to schools that were ranked lower than where I went that were fantastic attorneys and great legal minds. I have also worked with people that went to ivy leagues that had the same or similar job that I had and who didn't separate themselves from their peers like one might think. I do understand the optics of it though, but I am not really sure what any administration can do about it. Not saying something can't be done. I just don't know what can be done as it looks like IU is certainly spending money.

    (2020) PG - Andre Curbelo

    Am I wrong to think it will be difficult to get a PG Like Curbelo to commit to IU while RP is still here? Especially with the possibility of Lander committing the following season? Whoever commits is likely to be back up next year and if Lander commits will likely be pushed further down the depth chart. He certainly would be a welcomed addition, but I just don't see someone like him, who is clearly skilled enough to play and possibly start somewhere, wanting to commit to a situation where he will be down the depth chart for a few years.

    I couldn't hear anybody over the sound of me opening up all these beer cans.* * - I realize this is a visual medium but it doesn't work as well that way.
  7. Just impulse bought a 68 Rose Bowl throwback. Wife may get mad, but assuming that we make it this year it will all be worth it.

    Aside from my 7:30 meeting, my calendar is surprisingly empty for today. Next couple months look to be busy though!

    It wasn't directed towards you. It is directed at OF who seems so bent out of shape about people not liking an objectively polarizing person so much that he posts a audio clip from January 2015 (five years, not three years ago) to try and change people's minds about what they see the way the guy acts today. Especially, when I think everyone said that they liked him back then and they don't like him since he has changed his "image" since then. Sorry. I can see why it seemed like it was directed towards you.

    I am 28. I am just making sure if millennials are still supposed to be the thin skinned ones?

    I know he does a lot of stuff like this and is actively involved with amazing philanthropic organizations (my wife is on the Little Wish committee and he did a lot for them), and he should be commended for those efforts and his generosity in those areas. That doesn't ignore that fact that he is still extremely rude to people that he disagrees with and is confrontational just for the sake of it. He also has a great habit to lump large groups of people into a single narrative that fits his way of thinking (which is also common in the political world). You can do all the nice things in the world for a very sympathetic population (which again, should be commended), but you can't expect people to like you or think you are a good person if you are rude to them and act that way. For the record, I listened to DD everyday from college through most of law school. For me, within the past three or four years he has went from a guy that reminded me of sitting with my dad at a bar talking about sports (dad's also from Gary) to a typical shock jock radio guy. If that is your style, cool I guess, but you can't be surprised when it may turn some people off.

    If you were a student at the time of the extension (I was too), it should be apparent why he got the extension. He was the most beloved man on campus. He got a team that stunk the three years prior and took IU to the first sweet sixteen in a decade and had the number one team in the country going into 2013. If you saw the clear and apparent issues at that time, especially if as a student, then you were one of the few.

    I think getting Romeo sets the precedent of 5* Indiana kids coming here. If Romeo came in a couple years as opposed to last year, I bet his story would have been a lot different.
