    Welcome Coach Miller

    I had a good long talk yesterday with a coworker who is originally from Dayton. He follows the the Flyers almost as much as he follows UK. We discussed the possibilities of renewing the UK rivalry, the recruiting Archie has done, and most importantly his basketball IQ. Overall he was pretty upset that Dayton lost him, while also being happy IU landed him. This is coming from a guy, who has found any reason possible, to give me **** for being the only IU fan at work. Like him, I believe the general consensus around the college basketball world, is that they are ready for us to be relevant again. They, like MOST of us, are excited to see Archie make us compete again. Personally, I was a little upset after the announcement like a few others. Although, after spending the entire day reading other coaches opinions, seeing his body of work as a whole, and thinking about where we were just a couple of months ago, I went to bed fairly excited. I firmly believe the only way to go from here is up. That being said, even though I'm going to miss my Belgian Ales, I'm ready to start stocking my fridge with Millers, and enjoying IU basketball again.

    Welcome Coach Miller

    This is terrible. I woke up today to UK making it to the elite 8, and IU still not having a coach. Going back to sleep and trying this again.

    Right? Tomorrow is set to be my busiest day at work in months. I'll be 100 pages, & 200 offsetting rumors behind by the time I can get on here.

    You believe this is his real stance on Crean? Or just being polite?

    This suspense reminds me of the few days before Christmas as a child. Am I going to get the new toy I begged and pleaded for, or am I going to get that lump of coal?

    Yuck, they pulled a few of us to do JRTC down that way a couple years ago. Probably my least favorite place in the U.S. (Right up there with Lexington.)
  8. Thanks, it was better than I anticipated.
  9. Wow. All things considered, idk that I could've asked for a better first trip here.
  10. 17 mins until my first game at AH, and Crean's last game at AH.

    The 2015 NCAA Tournament Thread

    Been a lurking here for a couple months. After the Bryant commitment and UK lost, I just had to share my excitement with some fellow Hoosier fans. It's hard to share enthusiasm being a IU fan living in Kentucky lol.
