    Colts / NFL Game Thread

    He has hit with some positions but not so much on the game breakers. Leonard is one but we don’t get sacks and our corners and safeties aren’t consistent. Nelson is great but for a coach reluctant to be a run heavy team Nelson is like having awesome back seats in your Jeep. Have loved Buckner but his comments about playing vs Jax were not what a leader says. He has been solid in the middle but as our best lineman it did not translate into enough pressure on opposing QBs. Then he has been carrying this huge amount of unused salary cap space his entire time. With his seat getting warm I suggest he spend some of that for some fixes. I prefer him over Grigson by far and think teams under Grigs won despite who he brought to the team. But Ballard needs to find an answer at LT, DE, WR and QB. Not an easy shopping list.

  2. That makes more sense. The article I read just listed the same role. Thanks Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners mobile app

    College Bball Thread

    Fair points but while winning the championship is the goal I would be giddy if my coach got us to that many final fours. Now if he never won a championship that could hurt his legacy but his body of work is the reason why their fans won’t worry much about a mid season slump because he just has them ready come tournament time.

    I think when you are 5-0 in conference fans don’t tend to panic. If your team competes for BT titles every year fans don’t tend to get to worried during a close game. If you have a coach that has been to 8 Final Fours you have fans that can comfortably trust the process. When you have our history and have seen 3 coaches fail then we are probably going to have a hard time not over reacting to success and to failure. Hopefully Woody builds a program that has the level of success of MSU or better. Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners mobile app
  5. Moving to IU from TT for the same position does not seem to make sense. Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners mobile app

    Chicago style has finally hit Indy so hopefully one will drop in Bloomington as well. We at least had the gut buster with Garcia’s when I was there. Would be nice to add a legit one. Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners mobile app

    QB Bazelak picks IU

    So how did he go from starter to expendable? Seems like a solid pick up. Maybe a safer game manager type than a risk taker but I think you can build from what 2-9 with him. Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners mobile app

    IUBB vs #13/12 Ohio State - 01/06/22 @ 7:00 on FS1

    Hit hit a few timely contested shots and pulled down some key boards. Hope he has a few breakout games but he may just be the guy who at times can someone hit a runner in jptraffic when we really need it. Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners mobile app

    How are you feeling? My wife and I are about 11 days out from testing positive. I had a massive headache on day 0 and she had a massive sore throat for a few days. She also tweaked her back coughing and that has been hard but overall if it did not carry the Covid stigma I would say it was just a winter cold. We lost our smell, taste and some other symptoms make us think we got the end of delta vs omicron but who knows. Take a lot of vit D, C, Zinc and keep an eye on your O2. We have a sensor that we would pop on a few times a day just to make sure. While you have the fever try to avoid Tylenol. We were advised to use Advil only but couple with aspirin because that helps limit blood clotting. We have some special conditions too that kept us from the vaccine route so we had a kit bag ready to go one we knew we had it. Fortunately we waited till the later less threatening variants before it hit us. Praying for you. Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners mobile app

    I thought he had some nice work on the defensive end. Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners mobile app

    Lineup Changes?

    I had hoped all the talk of better spacing and an NBA offense would have led to more than 4 three point attempts from those 2. Offense has really looked bad and today looked like last year. Hoping this was an anomaly but just not seeing the spacing constantly leading to an NBA style which I assumed would mean more 3 pt shooting Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners mobile app
  14. I started watching in 1980 and Isiah Thomas has been my favorite followed by Calbert then Alford. TJD is approaching those levels but those guys also delivered tournament success which adds to their legend status. Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners

    Prayer Thread

    Hey we Bucks would appreciate your prayers this week. Had the kids and their spouses over for an extended stay last week any my daughter who never gets sick picked up Covid. Another daughter a month prior also may have gotten a different variant as those of us getting it now seem to be linked to the recent case. 2 confirmed house tests and 5 of us feeling like we have something. The 3 that have had it before are fine. It the feast of are in about day 3ish. Major headache and pressure behind the eyes for me wiped me out today. Took some meds around 5 and started to rebound around 7. Hoping that continues but prayers are for my wife. The type of viruses can really linger with her. Woul appreciate prayers for a speedy recovery for her. Thanks all! Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners
