    Totally forgot too...
  2. Without a doubt, the college game will be better. Book it.

    Book Thread

    I assume that you are looking for financial reads, based upon your penultimate sentence, correct? If so, start with "The Intelligent Investor" by Benjamin Graham and "Security Analysis" by Graham and Dodd. They will provide you with a solid, fundamental foundation for long-term investing.

    (2019) SF Trendon Watford to LSU

    I get that...but I would hazard a guess and say that substantially all of the kids coming out of HS as seniors are not ready for meaningfully contribute at the college level (obviously there are exception), much less a HS junior.

    (2019) SF Trendon Watford to LSU

    Honest question here...why, when I read these are people so interested in kids reclassifying and leaving HS early? (I don't mean to derail the topic, just curious since it was mentioned above, as well as other threads).

    We doing this this year?
  8. Well...the good part of UGA hiring him (for me anyway) is that no one down here (Atlanta area) really cares and I really should not have to hear about him. I had sports talk radio on yesterday and the majority of it was dedicated to talking about the Falcons.

    NIT Bubble Watch

    Went to last year's game at Georgia Tech...would rather be spared the embarrassment. Just let the off season work begin and Archie focus on recruiting.

    Post Season Thoughts Thread

    I am just glad that the season is over. This team was more brutal to watch than Crean's first team. There were times during the year that I couldn't watch the whole games. I am not sure if this team lacked heart or if CAM could not properly motivate them (not saying that this was the issue, but if so, could be a problem). I was pleased with the improved emphasis on defense and some other aspects of CAM's coaching philosophy (others that I was not pleased with...see FT shooting...you have got to know that FT win games, plain and simple). However, what does concern me is all of the talk about CAM just needing better players or his kind of players. This was a common theme when talking about Crean. A good coach has got to be able to work with what he has and make them a cohesive unit and perform above their talent level (I am not totally unreasonable and realize that Crean left the cupboard pretty bare). Not sure that we really got that the entire year. CAM was not my first choice, and after this season, I am not sure that he is the right man for the job, but he is the man in charge and I am willing to give him a chance since he is leading those young men that represent my alma mater. Looking forward to future seasons with hope.
  11. Maybe this is the exact reason that during the Knight years more tickets were allocated to the alumni...they typically show up no matter what. Time to think about changing the ticketing policy?

    IU vs O$U Game thread 1/30 7 pm

    Is anyone else concerned that we have seen no improvement in this team from the beginning of the season?

    Three Year Rebuild?

    Given the high rate of turnover, yes, it still felt like we were rebuilding.

    Three Year Rebuild?

    Any one else tired of "rebuilding"? I feel like we were in a rebuild mode at least the past 9 years.

    Next Year's Guard Rotation

    Already thinking about next season? I guess that is an indication of how well the season is going/expected to go.
