    God what I would give for someone to give Priller a 10-day contract. C’mon someone’s gotta be tanking hard enough for us to have NBA Priller Time.

    Pretty funny that at first I only read your first sentence about NBA types chiming in before scrolling down and the first name my eyes found was Tim Priller.

    It's truly unbelievable that being included in this article isn't crazy. We are even listed as a statement game for Cincy. Read that again. A win AT INDIANA in FOOTBALL will be a statement win for a team with playoff aspirations. It's just incredible what Tom Allen has going in Bloomington right now. Even if we end the season 8-4 and in the Music City bowl (selfishly, not a terrible outcome!) I'll still believe it's incredible where our football program is at.

    Yeah I think you might be talking about Tenn16? That was a good spot, and what I liked most was it was a low key place to watch sports on this side of town (I can't handle the smoke at Beyond the Edge) with a solid beer list that was fairly priced (a Good People IPA for $5 instead of $8). Lot's of places over here got the double whammy of being hit by the tornado right before COVID hit, and some haven't made it. I'm not even sure what my favorite hang would be at this point since we haven't gotten a chance to check out several new places. I'm just glad BoomBozz opened back up. It's a bit cheesy, but hey it's a place with a decent beer selection and a playground outside for the kids.

    Love East Nashville. We are ready for Beyond the Edge to open back up. Also sad the place right next to 3 Crows closed. We went to a hockey game the last time we were down there... loved it.

    Hah. Funny you say that. I've been here 14 years now and I nearly refuse to go to Broadway now. I get the appeal for people visiting though. I live over in East Nashville. Lots of great spots off the beaten path over here. Of course we have a 3 and 5 year old so we rarely get to do much of anything like that anymore.

    My take on this has always been that you know how relevant you are by how much hate you get. I think this is especially true in sports. We may not have had the success of an elite program recently but a LOT of people still LOVE to hate us. If we weren’t an elite program, no one would care. I love the hate. Now we just have to prove them wrong.

    We're going to be a top 15 team coming into the season. We return a lot from the best team we've had since....who knows. It's okay to think we'll be good!! :-)
    If we start 1-4 things have gone off the rails pretty quickly. I'd say there's an equal likelihood we start 5-0 than start 1-4. Overall I think 9-3 is very achievable here. If we can start strong with a win at Iowa, 10-2 is not crazy. I'll keep my expectations modest and say 8-4.

    I think this is where we get a little ahead of ourselves. We see a 2 minute highlight package (which by nature is all the best things that can be captured on video) and think we might have the next Duncan Robinson. I’m not accusing you specifically of saying that. But his floor is not Nick Zeisloft. His floor is a player that excelled at the NAIA level but gets overwhelmed by the athleticism and physicality of the Big Ten and is stuck at the end of the bench for his one year at IU. That very well may not happen. But his floor is not Nick Zeisloft.

    Probably not but scoring a ton of points at the NAIA level isn’t guaranteed to translate to production in high level D1 hoops. NZ played 2 years of D1 mid-major ball before IU. This kid may very well contribute at or above the level that NZ did. But saying that is his floor is NZ seems a bit of a stretch and quite frankly, another questionable expectation level our fan base is setting.

    That’s all good. It’s my OPINION of his floor. I could be grossly wrong. But to me, it appears his skillset would translate like Zeislofts did. Same size. Similar speed. Maybe better handles. Can shoot it. Shooting translates. Again, hence the Zeisloft comp.

    I kind of agree. It cracks me up with our fans when I see on multiple message boards yeah but it's a practice he's hitting 20/21. Coach Hunter made a point to say that Coach Matta came to him saying Parker hit 20/21 3's while you were gone in one practice. Coach Matta has been around for a long time and he is impressed but our CYO all-star fans are not. Of course, it's a practice but it's a start. It's hard to hit them in a game if you can't hit them in practice.

    Am I the only one who is skeptical of Stewart having a large impact?  I see people pencil him in as a starter but he is a huge question mark to me.  I wouldn't count on him being anything more than a role player.

    I love it. Players love it. It encourages offense. It discourages fouling. Endings are often exciting. I think it still needs tinkered to get the exact numbers right, but it’s on the right track.
     
    Look up Mo Creeks games this past summer as some evidence. Coaches would learn to coach for this. It’s strategic, and although they aren’t buzzer beaters, every game ends on a winning shot or free throw. Players play extremely hard in Elam Ending.

    One of its very specific purposes is to address the fouling/free throw/drawn out end to games we often see now. I think the amount of times a game would last longer b/c of the Elam ending will be very rare. The amount of games that will last less time b/c of the Elam ending will be a lot.

    Yeah, it’s the one reason I’m not totally on board with it yet....eliminating the chance of a buzzer beater. But on the flip side, every single game would have a game winning shot.
     
    As far as the 80-56 game, doesn’t matter how it ends...Elam ending, normal ending, the end to that game is not going to be exciting.
