I was a member on peegs for many years. Like another poster stated, had to let my credit card expire to end the subscription. After Peegs/Rabjohns helped facilitate the false rumor that Crean was leaving for Mississippi St everything changed. They sold out for access. Can't respect that when subscribers are paying for " inside access."

Peegs sold out when he went to a pay site. Well, really before that, more like when set up debates to attract hits.

A 2 pm tip means getting to AH for a coach at 9 or 10. Walkthrough and lunches plus pregame. Game will get over about 4-4:30. Addressing the team and media obligations at best 6 pm then a shower. 4 hour drive time. At best if everything goes perfect 10-10:30pm. I have a hard time believing he is going there Sunday. Monday? Probably. Off day except for coaches and maybe a film study from 3-5. Easier to work around. This is why you don't see a lot of recruiting anywhere on game days for any teams away from campus. Special circumstances sure, but a middle of the day creates a harder opportunity for that.   
Edit: Flight would be an hour including taxying. Plus clearance time at airport that is close to 2 hours. 8 pm on Sunday night? I don't see that as being plenty actually, especially when everything has to go perfect for that to happen.

I got the impression the coaches flew some Cook planes, at least sometimes. If you fly a private jet like that you basically show up at the airport and go. When you land you can have a car waiting for you and you are in route in minutes.

It would still mean getting in Sunday after dinner but he could probably get there in time.

It would be after 8, but if it's all we got and they are cool with it, meh.

Yeah maybe earlier if he can hand off post game assignments to an assistant coach but 8 is a good estimate. They probably would not meet for more than a couple hours so they could be done by 10.

If the dead period starts on Monday that may create a need for a Sunday visit.

That was what I was thinking. I do think that will stick out in a really good way or bad way for most kids tho. Duke is likely gonna get him tho so he probably didn't care at all. I mean if their both awake why not haha.

Jordan Tucker will be dukes next derryck Thornton, Semi Ojeleye, or chase Jeter. Over recruited top 50 players that were forced out

If IU can land both Darius and Romeo that would be a great start to try and gain the respect on the recruiting trail that these other programs have earned over the years. Consistency of stacking back to back great classes over multiple years will be the next step in continuing recruiting momentum. Any school can land a top 5 class in a given year but doing it consistently over multiple years is what separates the heavyweights

You're probably in the majority on that, but I actually have less respect for Duke. They're recruiting with the exact same mercenary sensibility as the other guys, and yet they fancy themselves somehow more pure. And they're able to pull it off for 2 reasons: 1)  K is somehow above reproach no matter what, and 2) they have a mob of apologists in the media, Dickie V and Bilas and Jay Williams etc, constantly harping on their otherworldly purity. At least Cal doesn't pretend to be anything but a charlatan.

UNC is who I hate the most. I hate Kentucky too but UNC shouldn’t be viewed as anything but trash. They’re the school that always gets the praise. There’s never anything bad said about UNC. And Kansas I’ve just recently started to hate. I’ve seen some of these stories with their recruits and it’s ridiculous. So that’s why I respect Duke over any of the other three schools
