    (2019) CG - Anthony Harris to North Carolina

    I would like to see us sign some of these recruits, but Archie hasn’t proved he can win yet. Plus, at Indiana he will have to go to class. I’m not implying Harris isn’t a good student, but every top recruit thinks he’s going to the next level. Maybe we should play up the next level will be in corporate USA not the NBA.

    (2019) CG - Anthony Harris to North Carolina

    I cannot speak about Bloomington’s cuisine as it has been decades since my last visit. But I can assure you the Chapel Hill area does not take a back seat when it comes to food.

    Joey Brunk to Indiana

    Welcome aboard Joey! That gut feeling of an eminent commit from last Saturday I had wasn’t the coffee after all.

    I’m feeling a Brunk commit coming anytime. Or it’s just my morning coffee working on me.

    2019 Coaching Carousel

    Hope he got a lump sum payment vs the standard payment unless he’s hired someone else to offset. I think he should have gotten more time at UCLA but whatever. Also, just watched the 87 final four game against UNLV in a high scoring barn burner. Everyone said we couldn’t run with the runnin rebels but we shut up all the detractors including Billy Packer by the end of the game. Also funny to see Bob Knight at his nicest I’ve ever witnessed. Good stuff for you youngins to watch. At halftime Knight mentions in 16 years at IU only 2 players hadn’t graduated. What other blue blood could say that?

    I guess that answers the question of if he had the chance of a do over.
  7. On a positive note at least our boisterous fans have all their teeth. Just look a little further south with similarities other than what I mentioned.

    1 year at IU what the hell else you gonna do? Too many and too little time. It takes 2 willing participants to make this happen unless you play b-ball at Mich St.

    FBI Corruption Investigation

    A perfect example of another reason our administration has failed miserably for 20 years. Knights firing and the bs no tolerance policy started it and Creans extension pretty much bookends the last 2 decades of IU b-ball. Getting a president that understands the importance of athletics and hiring an SEC AD would help get this sleeping giant turned around quickly.

    College Bball Thread

    If someone has to win from Tobacco Road, VA is definitely my choice. Hitting clutch shots and free throws proved they were the champs. Plus IU gets a couple extra low blows knowing both Guy and Bennett said no to us. Both had good reasons but you get my point.

    Knight In Declining Health

    3-0 in National Championship games and his players were students first and never bought and paid for. Wooden had Sam Gilbert and Coach K had Nike and jewelry loans. UNC had paper classes so that takes Coca Cola Roy and Dean out of the equation. If you had one game to win, Knight is #1 with a bullet. 2nd on my list is Everett Case. Not for his wins and championships even though he had many, but he’s responsible for Tobacco Road b-ball, the ACC tourney and March Madness, as well as cutting down the nets. This Hoosier stole that tradition from IN high school b-ball, but his innovation can be directly linked to why college b-ball has become so popular and great. Without him the Tar Heel State would still consider football #1.

    Knight In Declining Health

    Don’t take this the wrong way, but if you or any other posters don’t care; why are you posting on this topic? I post about wanting him back and another poster says I’m trying to spin it lol. I’m convinced the curse is real, so maybe him coming back to IU even for baseball; will lift it. I just hope we get to honor him the way it should be.

    Knight In Declining Health

    Sorry but I don’t see any spin on my post. If you don’t think there’s any vitriol on both sides, just pull up any topic related to him on BTown. I just want this curse exorcised.

    Hope he comes to a basketball game and gets the ovation he deserves. Maybe even get something named for him and have all his ex players be there as well. It’s time to bury the hatchet and finally get rid of the GD curse. Just as he would have said it.
