    FBI Corruption Investigation

    Not that it’s a big secret - but I would take this as confirmation that he’s aggressively pursuing positions - maybe getting some solid interest. While it’s certainly semantics in this instance, resigning v being fired for infractions would be important distinction to a potential new employer. wonder if he is still pursuing suit against adidas as a victim.

    That’s why there’s Terre Haute!!! (I know Evans and probably a couple of others from there).

    Just another drop in the bucket/blip on the radar in MSU and Izzo’s program! Multiple incidents over years and years...what a great culture he builds. Can’t wait for for the game day commentators to continue to ooze over how wonderful he is and how he builds such solid character in young men. No accountability.

    Right...like they wouldn’t let Pearl use conditioner anymore when washing his hair on Sundays! In most cases these days, self imposed penalties are just a means of damage control - how little you can get away with when there is smoking gun evidence against you. Then you can cry how tough your internal controls are and how much you’ve suffered at the hands of your own internal compliance team. Absolutely no one practices self immolation like we did.

    2019 Off-Season IU Roster News and Moves

    Certain Fitz was a nice kid that tried hard! Maybe they had him helping paint the new locker room, and this is the presence being referenced!

    Found a treasure trove of IU videos on YouTube

    Watched the 1989 Michigan home game. Observations... 1 - IU was super outmanned talent-wise. This is the Michigan team that won the NCAA championship that year and included RIce, Mills, Robinson, and Higgins - all NBA’ers. IU’s top talent was Jay Edwards, who could do incredible things. 2 - IU played ok, not great. Coaching effort was good - patient, controlled, solid strategy - but not necessarily one of RMK’s notable masterminds. 3 - Man, those RMK teams used to play sooo gd tough - top to bottom. They really stayed in the game with raw toughness and determination. From Jadlow, to Jones, Hillman, and even the star Edwards — when they came on the floor they knew to get after it ALL the time. Don’t see that too often these days across an entire team. Guys made mistakes, but lack of game effort on every play, and even sub-play, was never one of them. IU pretty much wrapped up the Big regular season title with this win, and w out seeing the whole season, with this team you know they won purely w effort, not talent. 4. Edwards hits the game winning 3 as time expired - beautiful shot - and Bobby jumps up and down and celebrates in excitement (big dude then) like one of the kids. Nice to see - don't recall him ever showing that much outward excitement any other time after this game/season.

    Based on the outcomes of the fbi investigations - and the limited/no consequences for such obvious worst case scenario scale cheating at the highest levels - it should be open season for cheating go forward! And, that’s only what we saw from the 2nd, arguably 3rd tier shoe company supported teams/players. Sadly, it seems the BIG either needs to embrace it, or accept 2nd tier status in the Power 5 in both major sports. Maybe once In awhile, it will continue to get lucky. Opening the game/limiting the no call physicality of the bIG might help too. The 5’ers don’t want slow hard foul no call muscle ball nor to risk their career getting crushed!

    Adidas ‘support’ operation must be shut down! TJ’s not getting anyone guys these days. Their premier programs reside in the BIGs - 10 & 12 + the Ville and no one’s going to touch it w a dollar! This could impact the program big time long term. Adidas conceding b-ball to Nike and Under Armor. Meanwhile, merrily they roll along..
