    College Bball Thread

    1) The steal: not smart, but not as egregious as its made out to be (worse if you are winning and you try to score) 2) The block, absolutely okay, great play and evened out the "disrespect" of the steal 3) Standing over the guy, which is universally a sign of disrespect and dominance over someone...not okay, and escalated the situation. You felt disrespected, you got the block, great. Move on...I personally think this is partially on the refs/NCAA letting celebrations get a little out of hand. I understand you want to play with passion, but the flexing after scoring, putting your hand down to the ground signify someone is too small to guard you in the post, etc. all adds to fires like this. Maybe I am old haha. All around a sad scene.

    Tons of options...some new depending on your last visit. On the square, The Tap (awesome beers, food is great...fire cracker shrimp, burgers, etc.), Social Cantina (a la carte tacos, Margs), Smokeworks (Texas style barbeque and bourbon bar). Can't go wrong with either of those three. Plenty of really good options on the square. My favorite restaurant in Bloomington is Upland. Local brewery with really good food and beer. I also really like Farm, but it is a little pricier than the other options mentioned above.
  3. Good question...you always wonder would IU of been better off accepting the mutiny, letting players leave and bringing in a new staff vs. hiring Davis. He did get us a final 4 run I guess.

    1 on 1 Player Meetings and Rotation Change

    Was pretty close to the action, and saw nothing but positive attitudes up and down the bench on Saturday. Archie even showing a little more fire than usual. Also...Mike Roberts is amazing to watch on the bench. I’m not sure how he has a voice after each game. His passion is infectious.

    (2020) SG Anthony Leal to IU

    South grad here. Wife went to north. Glad to see North basketball back to being competitive.
  6. Turns out Knight showed up at the Marian game today...so bizarre. Attends a random College game while ex players are being celebrated, again. I think Im finally be done entertaining him coming back. Clear it probably won’t ever happen. Apologize for the Misinformation earlier boys...
  7. Rob was having issues with his hip after hurting it in the second half. Favoring it pretty good. Hoping nothing serious....his tone from the get go sparked us.
  8. Team played really hard, too to bottom. THIS is the team they can be when they lock in. Free throws still going to give me a heart attack.
  9. For what it’s worth. Bench looks engaged. Green and Davis cheering Rob in banging that three. Smiling.
  10. Welp...he’s cut off from the family haha.
  11. Is this a knock at me? Nothing wrong with some skepticism..ive been given bad information before. Sorry for sharing what I was told... also aware of the fact that he could eat breakfast with the team but not attend the game.
  12. I agree. Family member isn’t at cook hall, but over at assembly. Was told he had breakfast with the team at Cook Hall. Now...Billy D also was in Bloomington supposedly. Would be disappointed if I was given bad information, but at least wanted to share it. Christmas gifts next year on the line here for this person ha ha.
  13. I was just told by a family member who works at IU in athletics, that Bobby is at cook hall currently eating, and will be attending the game. Still not sure what to believe, but I guess we will see.
  14. I was at the game, and honestly wasn't watching the bench closely. What did they do that would warrant a suspension in your eyes? Have seen something mentioned in another thread but no details.
