  1. Me too brother. Great post. Go Hoosiers.
  2. I feel like you and I are saying the same thing. But who is the one getting offended in your scenario? I've never seen anybody labelled as negative get offended by a positive post. That's usually the opposite
  3. I never said that you said that. I'm just saying that this board is overwhelmingly sunshine pumpers which makes it weird when they complain about the minority of posts. That's all.
  4. As a collective, this board is overwhelmingly optimistic. Disagreeing with that is untrue. If the minority of posts disagree with your opinion and you label them as negative, then the problem might lie within you. Just my 2 cents. I hate it when the majority opinion complains about having to hear the minority opinion.

    Let's Talk Hockey

    The St Louis Blues just ended the season with a blowout win in game 7 of the Stanley Cup. St Louis is an amazing story this year. Early this season they fired their coach Mike Yeo because the team was underperforming. They promoted Craig Berube as an interim coach and they hit dead last in the entire NHL on January 3rd of this year. They then went on to win the Stanley Cup. I know quick turnaround stories are taboo around here, but I hope we can all appreciate the storybook season. You think the Blues will promote Coach Berube to permanent status now lol

    After a much more competitive period, the Blues are still up 2-0. There is one 20 minute period left until we have a new Stanley Cup champion

    2-0 St Louis over Boston after one period in a game that was controlled by the Bruins

    2019-2020 Basketball Schedule

    All true...but I took pride in being matched up against Duke and UNC because it made me feel like they feel our program matches up with them. This is a step back imo. Which is more in line with who we (unfortunately) are.

    It's sad that they realize that we're not on the level of the big programs anymore. But I'm happy because maybe they'll send our Hoosiers down here to Florida next year! I'll host the tailgate

    Memphis vs Indiana

    Memphis. I don't think Indiana will make the tournament under Archie Miller.

    IndyCar thread

    The IndyCar season officially starts today!  First race of the year is at 12:30 on ABC.  We have no basketball to watch...so this is what my tv will be on.   I only follow this race and the Indy 500, but I'm hoping some of the posters who follow the series can help keep us updated here.   These cars are so much louder now than in the previous couple years, was there a big change in the offseason?  The last two years I couldn't hear them from my house, today they're so loud I have to crank up the tv with my windows open.   Pole position today belongs to Will Power who broke the track record in qualifications.

    Why do you say that?

    I like hockey, but I find it interesting that they're advertising the Stanley Cup as the best trophy in sports during the Indy 500. They're wrong, the Borg Warner trophy is the best in sports

    IndyCar thread

    Yeah I'd say she's as annoying when announcing as she was when racing

    Whoa...who did Paul Tracy eat? I haven't seen him since he was racing, I think he doubled in size

    Can they finish tomorrow? I feel like I remember the race moving 15 years ago or so due to weather

    IndyCar thread

    Correct me if I'm wrong...do they just need to run 101 laps before lightning in order to call it a race? That could lead to interesting fuel strategies

    It's raceday!!!!!! Go Sebastian Bourdais (he lives in my neighborhood) or Helio or Marco
  20. Strange, huh? It wasn't the whole board though, just a handful of very vocal posters. One bashes him every chance he gets. One posted a ridiculous rant after a sideline show. That rant got a lot of posters fired up even though video shows his rant was incorrect. I personally find it embarrassing when posters bash kids. I hope Devonte Green has an all conference season. I've liked him since he signed his loi
  21. I wonder about this excuse as well. Especially when there's been a lot of excuses. How many years do we have to wait until we can expect success again? When Archie came we heard an excuse that his hands were tied due to apr and administration and he wasn't allowed to make any roster changes. Then you realize that Gelon was dumped. Then you realize that he could have let any of the recruits out of their loi without penalty and you wonder. You hear that we didn't get McKinley Wright because Archie's hands were tied, but you realize they weren't. Who knows if any of these roster changes would have mattered, but it seemed to be an excuse. Then you hear an excuse about not being able to get transfer players and wonder about it too. Just win man. Just effin win. Until you do, there will be rightful doubt.
  22. Every Cleveland fan I know is also an Ohio State fan. You think they're rejoicing for crippling their rival's basketball team lol
  23. I don't get it. We have two available scholarships. We just had a season where injuries hampered results. We are thin in the backcourt with a need for shooters. We are an injury away from more issues. We need depth. He absolutely would have helped. Do people dislike him because he wants to go to college to improve himself? Ask yourselves. Did you go to college to improve your life or to improve the college? Everybody goes to college to improve their own life. Everybody. Do we dislike him because he's not from Indiana? He's a dreaded east coaster? We need to get beyond our own biases and stereotypes. I don't get this fanbase. I know not every one of us has these thoughts, that would be a stereotype. But man we drive me crazy sometimes.
  24. While some IU fans wait for Archie's bulldog mentality to move to his team, I feel it's a good time to mention that Coach Mike Davis was named Mr Hustle his last two years at Alabama. His teams never seemed to assimilate his qualities either. At some point, you need to realize that only results on the court matter. Hopefully Archie can surpass him there, but it's been a very underwhelming tenure for him so far.
  25. I would have to think that he does (or should). I'm in sales, and have about 200 customers. Some of them call me, some of them text, some of them email me. I adjust my communications to meet their preferences. If one of them wanted to face time their orders, you'd better believe I'd do it. I hope Archie does too.
