    (2021) - PF Mason Miller

    situation where the parents know that Mason could commit to IU today if he wanted to even without a formal offer. With some kids to start a relationship and to get in their recruitment a formal offer is needed in situations where there isn’t a previous relationship. Example Graham from yesterday. Miller has a strong relationship with Ostrom so while a formal offer might not be public if he wanted to commit he could. Snow went ahead and put an offer check mark by his name because he got tired of reading about it on the peegs board Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    This is a great story from Pete DiPrimio about the summer of 1985 when Knight took the Hoosiers on a world tour which was possibly the foundation for the 1987 championship. Lots of good quotes. http://www.petediprimio.com/stories/petediprimio-story-12.html

    (2022) PG Braden Smith

    The Daily Hoosier just did a podcast interview with Braden Smith: https://www.thedailyhoosier.com/listen-iu-basketball-2022-in-state-recruiting-target-braden-smith-on-the-hoosier-experience-podcast/ The highlight? The Daily Hoosier: "You've only got the one offer right now, but you've got a ton of interest... I've read that you have interest from a ton of schools including IU, Purdue, Belmont, and a bunch of other higher tier major programs. Which programs have stuck out to you so far in terms of the interest you've received?" Braden Smith: "(pauses) IU. (pauses) Really. (pauses) Yes. Coach Walsh, Coach Flint, Coach Ostrom. I mean, I just got a call from Coach Miller, last week, I think. He just called and said, hey; I was thinking about you (Stuhoo aside -- insert Tom Crean joke here)...They show interest. They show they care. They show that I matter to them. So, that helps a lot." TDH: "...we would love to see you in the Cream and Crimson." Braden Smith: "(nervously laughs)...yes."

    Stew was at IU during my time there, great dude. His cousin was my suite mate, the three of us and John Flowers spent way too much time at space port playing that USA/USSR hockey game. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    Link Sports Illustrated article talking to some UM insiders about what the college football season is shaping into. Summary: - Schools are looking into regional schedules. No games where a team cannot bus to and back from on game day. Would apply to all fall sports. “One Big Ten West program planning on multiple FCS opponents.” - Potential for home and home series in the conference. - At least one Big Ten school will likely not play this fall, with potential for a few others to follow. No one wants to be the first to announce. - IU was mentioned several times by these insiders as a team that is planning to play this season.

    2019-2020 NBA Thread

    How are we to judge athletes like Vic on his decisions for his own life? He is coming off a devastating injury that might have ended most athlete’s careers. He worked his way back to playing real games and then the season was halted. The rhythm is now gone, and he is more susceptible to re-injury. He is also about to enter a contract year. If he hurts himself again, he will not get near the amount of money he would have gotten if he were to get to 100% and had an All-Star year. If he leaves, I’m sure it’s in his best interest whether that be money or a better situation for him. Vic knows himself best, and he shouldn’t be called a prima donna. He is doing what he thinks is best for him. His health and life are more important than the Pacers making the Eastern Conference semifinals.

    Coronavirus and Its Impact

    Fishing chat and pics..

    The GF and I made it out yesterday afternoon and it was a sauna. The fish weren't really cooperating but managed a few cleaners. No pics. I didn't have anywhere to carry my phone as we fished naked due to the heat.

    The season has already been significantly shortened and there's no guarantee the re-scheduled season won't get cut short if too many players insist on playing doubles ping pong (sarcasm intended) and a virus outbreak completely ends it. I harbor no ill will toward Vic for his decision and protecting his career. Love to see the comments from the Pacer 'fans' should Vic re-sign with the Pacers.

    2019-2020 NBA Thread

    If we're being honest about the facts, the virus poses an incredibly small risk to professional athletes. So many college and pro athletes have tested positive for the virus without even knowing they had it because they didn't have any symptoms. And the NBA bubble is going to be one of the safest places in the country. Oladipo isn't sitting out because of the virus. He plans to travel to the bubble and be around his teammates. He's just worried about getting injured. I can't say I blame him. He just came back from a tough injury and the Pacers aren't contenders this season. No reason to risk it.

    Justin Smith Declares

    https://arkansas.rivals.com/news/smith-brings-versatility-to-arkansas-as-a-grad-transfer Love this article. Musselman is a smart, smart guy. Puts out in the public arena exactly what Justin and his family want to hear(playing some 2, increased 3pt looks, creating his own offense off the bounce) when in reality he’s gonna do none of those things.

    IU offered today. Graham is a 6'8" PF attending Nicolet HS in Milwaukee, WI. Graham shot 61 percent from 2-point range and 44 percent from three-point range. And that latter number was no fluke. Graham had more than five attempts from deep per game as a junior. TheDailyHoosier Rivals MaxPreps

    When Knight Took On The World

    Wow! What memories! My family moved to Terre Haute Indiana in 77 from Cincinnati Ohio. My older brothers had taught me how to play basketball but baseball was my passion. Larry Bird piqued my interest in basketball then IU made me love it. 81 with Isaiah, Wittman, Tolbert, Turner, and that group winning the NC solidified it. I was hooked. Graduated HS in 83. Same year as Alford. He and Simmons were my faves their freshman year. I remember reading the Indianapolis Star and Terre Haute Tribune to get any details of this trip that I could. Loved reading this article. Thanks for putting it on here!
