  1. The Indy Star story you linked to says this about the Washington Post article: "That’s not to discredit the Post’s story, which is well-reported and revealing, while also measured and balanced. It makes a case and makes it well —" So, if the Star story sums up your thoughts...what is your problem with the Washington Post?
  2. Just one more thing he was wrong about.
  3. I don't want anyone to think I'm getting onto the kid about this. I'm not, and it wasn't his decision anyway. I just wonder.......was there no one who has done work with youth groups (cue up Joe Pesci saying "These two YOUTS") who might have been deserving? No person who has given of their time for years in helping the young people of the area? No one along those lines? Just doesn't feel right.
  4. This is just unreal. I can't remember a kid (just out of high school) getting this type of attention. I know the court is not a mega-dollar sort of thing, and maybe they were going to build one anyway, but the attention/platitudes he is getting seems very unique. If he had won the state title would they have named the town after him? :)
  5. Sooo....don't keep us in suspense. Is your dog named Juliet? That would make a good story even better.
  6. WOW! Tim Langford just punched Kansas square in the nose.

    NCAA Commission on College Basketball Report

    Those read like canned, pre-written responses that would have been used regardless of what the commission's statement said.
  8. Shouldn't that be the McRoberts Family? OK, maybe not that good of a joke, but on the serious side (and never being hesitant to show my ignorance), who is the Roberts family?

    NCAA Commission on College Basketball Report

    What do you envision it (the sport) becoming if the NCAA actually experiences the "collapse" you've been calling for? In what way do you see the situation becoming better? What (or who) would replace the NCAA as a governing body? I personally don't see that as a good thing.
  10. What an amazing article. It actually brings a tear to the eye. Tear of happiness, that is.
  11. You're right. It was the others turn to "go" first.
  12. He might want to tie his shoes as well. They are all looking a bit sloppy. Maybe I'm just old. Maybe they just can't put money towards suits, or maybe that is just their style. Don't know. Don't intend to insult, by the way. Yeah, I'm probably just old.

    RIP Daryl Thomas (1965-2018)

    Cryin' shame. Always seemed like one of the good guys. Too soon. Way too soon.

    Thanks for posting that. It is always good to hear from guys like Calbert.

    FBI Corruption Investigation

    You need a new radio. :) I always buy radios that won't receive country stations. Everything else, yes, but not country. I'm allergic. Oh, and welcome to BTB!
  16. Sounds to me like just one man's opinion. Wouldn't assign any more importance to it than that.
  17. Literally broke out laughing at this part. I wonder how many of the younger posters have any idea who he is?
  18. So, not only do they have to vacate the 2013 title and wins over four seasons, they have to take down the banner as well. This is the first time the NCAA has made a team remove a banner as part of the punishment. They also have to return some $600,000 to the NCAA the university "earned" for tourney appearances. Washington Post article
  19. They will have to get them back from the hookers first.

    I wonder if there are any big guys from the football team who played basketball in high school? Might be able to get a bit of help depth-wise there?

    IU versus Duke Pre-game Thread

    I started looking at that picture and totally forgot about actually reading the thread. OK, so I'm shallow! Sue me!

    Keady looks like he is suffering from constipation.
