    Fishing chat and pics..

    Caught 3 Arctic Graylings this past weekend on the Chatanika River, north of Fairbanks, Alaska. This Grayling was a monster (yes, they are really small but rare). Had a blast drinking too much irish whiskey.

    2020 June AAU Action

    Couple of reports from today's action in Indpls. from Alec Lasley. Just got done watching Indiana Elite's second game. Terrific second half for Trey Kaufman who finished with 23 points (8-of-15) in a 85-71 win. Noticeably bigger/stronger/quicker. Showed a variety of moves on extended post up opportunities. 2021 IU commit Logan Duncomb, too, put on some nice muscle. Looks more athletic as he continues to grow into his body. Great footwork + great job getting early post position multiple times.

    Looks like Braden Smith had a great showing this morning in Westfield. Went for 39 points. The more and more I watch this kid, I believe he is a MUST get! Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    Coronavirus and Its Impact

    My comment wasn’t directed at you personally it was aimed at the false reports of 100% capacity. It’s all over the news down here now that the 100% capacity reports weren’t accurate and were an error on TMC’s part which the hospitals in the TMC system had already refuted shortly after the initial report. It just irked me because I was trying to get tested again to see if I was finally negative and I’ve had to wait a week for the results(tomorrow will be 3 weeks since I popped positive) and it’s because the media hasn’t gotten their facts straight before reporting and it’s making people freak out. The Dr that ended up giving me my latest test, said most of the people he’s been testing haven’t had any symptoms they’re just worried and want tested. That’s causing the back log for Regular sick people and those who have tested positive like myself.

    Yup -- as criticized as it has been when the parent of a top athlete creates an AAU summer team, the creation of an entire sham high school takes it to a whole new level. Prolific Prep look out, here come Ypsi Academy!

    My personal opinion hasn’t changed. This is a coronavirus. The common cold (coronavirus) kills a lot of elderly and unhealthy people every year. It’s chalked up as natural causes often. Nobody even bats an eye. The death rate is lessening all the time of Covid19, if it was ever actually high in the first place. You can’t and won’t be able to quarantine and kill the virus. The flattening the curve turned into to something it probably shouldn’t have. We need to learn to live with it. The scare tactics employed about this thing are unreal. People don’t have enough science background to even understand half of this stuff. The public will believe anything they are told. I’ve been this way from the beginning and it isn’t changing.

    Aubrey Burks to IUFB

    IU football recruiting: Florida based class of 2021 safety Aubrey Burks commits to Indiana June 26, 2020 Mike Schumann IUFB, Recruiting 0 The Florida to IU pipeline remains strong for head coach Tom Allen. Hailing from the Sunshine State, class of 2021 safety Aubrey Burks has committed to Indiana. He follows a long line of recent defensive backs from the state that headed to Bloomington. The Auburndale, Florida based Burks broke the news on his Twitter page on Friday afternoon. The 6-foot and 195 pounds Burks also played outside linebacker in high school and he projects to the husky position in IU’s 4-2-5 scheme. In 2019 Burks recorded 63 tackles including 17 for a loss and 6 sacks for Auburndale High School. He also forced three fumbles, recovering two, and had two interceptions. Burks scored twice from the defensive side of the football. Burks was named The Ledger first time All-County (Polk) as a linebacker. He started his high school career at IMG Academy before transferring to Auburndale. Burks is a three-star recruit. According to the 247Sports Composite, Burks is the No. 757 player overall and the No. 56 safety nationally. He is the first commit in IU’s 2021 class that projects to the safety or husky positions. Burks chose Indiana over a list of primary suitors that included Louisville, Georgia Tech, Pittsburgh, South Florida, Mississippi State and West Virginia. In total Burks had more than 30 offers. The IU recruiting class of 2021 now has 10 verbal commits. You can learn more about each member of the class here.

    So strange. If anyone is a straight to NBA talent it’s this kid. Why bother with this commitment, especially this early? My only answer is for Michigan State marketing. This kid won’t play college basketball. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Okay guys...IT’S TIME FOR INSTALLMENT #2: This is an IU vs Kentucky matchup at Assembly Hall ... no, not THAT one! Under the category of how far we’ve come, this is the 2009 game: “the Maurice Creek game.” UK had three lotto picks in their starting five and another on the bench. Pritchard guarded DeMarcus Cousins, Jeremiah Rivers guarded John Wall and VJ3 guarded Eric Bledsoe. Our bigs off the bench? Elston, Capo, Tijan and Bawa Muniru. Steven Gambles and Danny Moore got some run. For the first half, Mo Creek was the best player on the floor for either team.

    It's kind of like the steroid scandal in baseball. The NCAA benefited by having certain blue blood schools continue to stay on top by cheating, much like MLB benefited by having the home run races. The ripple effect is that in order to stay competitive, many schools that otherwise would not have done so (just like many players that would not have done so in the steroid scandal) felt that had to in order to compete. Honestly, screw 'em. IMO, there are more important things in life than winning some games if you can't do it on the up and up. Jerry Sloan was once asked if he would ever have Dennis Rodman on his team given all of the headaches he caused.....Sloan was an ultra-competitive coach, but even he had his limits. His reply was that "I guess some things are more important to me than winning."

    The schools offering him seem kind of... random. No idea why you would be entertaining Texas A&M, Wake, and Clemson when you’re being recruited by IU, UL, and PU all close to home, and the defending national champion (I guess?) UVA. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    4'28" interview with Dra Gibbs-Lawhorn from last weekend. A very polite young man. Class of 2023 McCutcheon High School guard Dra Gibbs-Lawhorn has the look of the next big thing in Indiana basketball recruiting. As a freshman, Gibbs-Lawhorn poured in 21 points per game while adding 3 rebounds, 1.3 assists and .9 steals per contest. He made 49 percent of his attempts from the field, including 46 percent of 136 attempts from long range. https://www.thedailyhoosier.com/iu-basketball-recruiting-2023-guard-dra-gibbs-lawhorn-talks-freshman-season-and-recruiting/?fbclid=IwAR0X7w4M12ZOYcQJ2McuSKoKdR9W1W0IfMBTo2KTPhxVVeYZpb_tjG6JbJ4

    Way too early but there is a longstanding connection to IU and its basketball history. Gus Yalden already 6'10" and 240 lbs., lays claim to Donald "Danny" Danielson as his great uncle who served as an IU trustee from 1958-80. https://www.thedailyhoosier.com/iu-basketball-recruiting-2023-forward-gus-yalden-has-a-unique-connection-to-indiana/?fbclid=IwAR2SuHKC7928uqIcv8y-k9sV8VZt_HTNGDdxHCc4y6zA4cz_sRvzbFg3pjU
