    Ah, well, how about that. What do I know, I’m a formula 1 guy so legally I’m required to turn my nose up at other Motorsport, so I do.

    Cmon man we wouldn’t seriously be looking at a NASCAR driver to coach our football team!! He’s an Indycar driver!!

    I don't appreciate you pointing out that my admittedly unscientific study contains a complete lack of scientific data.

    This is interesting. A 100% unscientific, off the cuff, without any evidence case study in NIL for IU. According to IU's website there are 760K graduates of IU. To use conservative numbers, let's just start with the 415K that are grads of IU-Bloomington. Let's assume 20% of that number actually care about football, so 83,000. Of that, maybe 2/3rds of people recognize NIL is a legitimate and necessary thing and are willing to contribute some amount of money to help the IU football program. So now we're down to ~50,000. This doesn't consider grads of other campuses and other fans that aren't alums. If we set a realistic goal for IU football to be a middle of the pack Big Ten program, let's assume our NIL contribution totals will be in line with that, so also middle of the pack. So maybe $5M toward collectives to pay players? That would mean an average donation of $100 across those 50,000 alums to get there. Considering 1 person was willing to contribute $1M, that average donation for the rest is down to $80. Is it doable?

    Kansas public sale for IU game....

    Luckily Nashville -> KC is a cheap flight on Southwest, and the price has gone down twice during sales since we booked. We got a pretty cheap rental car and some reasonable hotel rooms right off their main drag. I'm actually 100% confident this trip to Lawrence will be cheaper than our weekend in Bloomington next year that won't require a flight and rental car.

    Got ours as well. Big relief. We still have 4 total tickets from the mini plan up for sale but if we sell none of them we're all still in the door at about $35/each for the IU game. Equivalent tickets on stubhub for that game are listed at $333 all in with fees. I think we made the right decision :-). Hell I wish I would have bought the max amount of tickets and sold what we didn't need now.

    I'm still doing my best to manage expectations. But right here is where it's really hard to do so. Any season of the past decade (or longer?) if we'd have been looking forward to a starting lineup of Trey, Scoop, JG, MR, and LD, we'd rightfully be analyzing something like this: we've got two 5-stars (I know Scoop was borderline, but still), a scrappy, high energy upperclassman who will make a great floor leader in Trey, another upperclassman destined for a breakout season in JG, and guy who put in the time in the weight room and sounds like he's being more assertive in practice in LD. We'd be talking about our chances to make the tournament and all that. Fair. Yet that's projected to be our 2nd team. Ok, back to aggressively suppressing expectations.

    Little Rock game 11/23

    I'm not worried about Thanksgiving day, just the Wednesday before. We'll head back out first thing in the morning (making sure our tank is full the day before). Sounds like we won't have much of an issue finding a place to take our money on Wednesday.

    Little Rock game 11/23

    Probably not worth it's own topic but I couldn't find an appropriate thread it fit in either. Thinking of making the trip up on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving for the Little Rock game. Curious from folks around Bloomington what we should expect that day as far as places being open? I'm sure it's going to be pretty dead overall, but do places stay open that day? If we can find places open during the day but closed after the game, we might still do it. If our options will be extremely limited during the day before the game as well, we might pass.

    Yes, I believe he had surgery to fix that thing.

    Trust the process. Also, bleh…I hate it.

    Yeah that's going to be a stressful transfer. I'm also luckily not the one managing the StubHub sales but I made sure to tell my buddy to specify the 48 hours before game time thing so the buyers know to have that expectation. Still feels a bit like we'll just have to see how it goes as far as these Stubhub sales actually happening.

    Same with us. I wasn't the one who bought the tickets, but my buddy had a freak out moment when he saw nothing in his order history. He called the ticket office and they confirmed they had his order. Not sure what's going on with it not showing in the actual order history. I expect they'll be taking plenty of calls/emails about that as the game gets closer.
