    Dang Gearlds is my coworker’s niece. Always thought she was a great kid/person. Gonna be harder to wish them the worst. Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners mobile app

    Why a D2

    My youngest was on a recruiting visit at a school they are likely not to play at but the coach gave great advice. Pick a school you would love to be at even if you were not an athlete. If you get a chance to also play your sport even better. When evaluating teams/staffs look to see how many kids stay 4 years. If you aren’t going to play professionally then find a healthy environment where they will make you a better adult and don’t worry if that is D1, D2 or even NAIA.

    (2022) - PF Noah Clowney

    We were down in Tigerville SC checking out a school and definitely thought that town was small. Just 30 minutes away from Greenville which is a very nice and rapidly growing area. I suspect they have seen and experienced Greenville and that is bigger than Bloomington Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners mobile app

    IU Women's Soccer

    Does ND have a strong women’s team? Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners
  7. I got in thanks. Do you work for the HT? I spent 6 years there but that was before on line was a thing Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners mobile app
  8. How does one find said video. Tried looking on twitter under Sean's name but no luck so far
  9. Saw one comment that TJD hit a 3 but then I did not see that in the box score. Anyone know if he shot anything from further away? Don’t really care if he made them just curious if his points came like last year I also thought one of the reporters ask Woody about our defense picking them up either full or half court. Woody just remarked that defense is a priority but I was more curious in our approach. Anyone know if our defense extended out perhaps even full court some? Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners
  10. Good comments and he could be huge if he is even like freshman rob but I don’t put much stock in it till we see it consistently on the court. Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners

    USWNT - 2021 Olympic Redemption Edition

    He will have a tough road for sure. It will be hard to continue on the veteran approach but going to young may not produce early either. If we go young but look shaky over the next year he may not make it to the cup. But we need to get younger and you will probably look shaky as you do it. So his risk is that he may do the right thing but still get fired. Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners mobile app

    USWNT - 2021 Olympic Redemption Edition

    Nice article about future of the USWNT and some of the young names to watch. https://www.goal.com/en/amp/news/lloyd-rapinoe-out-smith-rodman-how-uswnt-line-up-2023-world/1oagcfwcv2h2t1n4fil9dxpmhi
  13. Hard to say if we are in a good spot really until we get more to commit. Nice to see us make some final lists but we have been here before. Would love to see more of the early momentum swing over into HS recruiting such that we land a very strong class. Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners mobile app

    USWNT - 2021 Olympic Redemption Edition

    Certainly you would agree this result was a disappointment based on expectations though. It wasn’t like we lost just one game. Glad they got the bronze though and hope we give some of the youth more opportunities over the next 2 years. Anyone know if Mallory Pugh is likely to regain her form? While she has played a lot she is still fairly young. Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners mobile app

    2020-2021 NBA Thread

    A mid market team that does not want to go into the luxury tax has a very narrow path to being a contender. Generally you have to draft a legitimate star (really you 2-3) and then fight off big market teams who will lure them away. In conjunction with this you need to trade well. Everyone felt we won the Vic -PG trade and we were in a great spot with the way Vic played. He was in a position to be our next Reggie, all NBA face of the franchise. Then he got hurt and he got sideways with the leadership. Then we found ourselves back on the narrow path. My biggest complaints with the Pacers is that twice they had their best player get sideways (have to find a way to fix that) and it seemed clear to most that they did not have the firepower to win this year. Without having to worry about an empty arena they should have found a way to get a top 3 pick. Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners
