    Coronavirus and Sports Only - PLEASE and THANK YOU

    Spoiler alert: it’s not going to get better. We had our chance and blew it. I think the football season shrinking is the writing on the wall.

    Reminds me of a Kentucky meme that I cannot find for the life of me, but the top picture is one black kid with a bunch of rednecks smiling and it says “Kentucky fans during basketball season,” while the bottom picture says “Kentucky fans the rest of the year” and it’s just the Klan. And you know, it’s not like UK basketball has a history of segregation or anything...

    All-Time Underrated Team

    Todd Lindeman Kirk Haston Pat Graham Jamal Meeks ...and... Sherron Wilkerson. I know, I know, but I watched him play his junior and senior years at Jeffersonville and really liked him. My aunt was the secretary of the high school and my dad talked to him a lot and had high hopes for him. Then we all know what happened. Sad thing is, his sophomore year was showing a lot of promise for him as a starter and he was a good contributor, but of course it all went down. So maybe not “underrated” as much as “disappointed.”

    Speaking of which, I saw they put this up at the park by my mom’s house where Pat used to play pickup games (he went to my high school)

    Oh definitely, though I never had any classes there, everyone else I knew did.

    Not sure where to put this, but the WIC is now named after Bill Garrett, which I personally think is awesome. One of the things about IU that we should be proudest of is the breaking of the unwritten color barrier in the B1G as the first black starter and not just a sub. Meanwhile, decades later at UK, Tom Payne...*cringe*.

    Man I really loved when he’d troll Purdue and flex and just be a scrappy player the other teams probably hated to deal with, a real Nover-type bad guy. We need one of those next season.

    An Underrated Absolute Classic

    “Gene Keady looking for that national championship.” Keep looking, guys.

    Of course that’s what he’s auctioning. I don’t have any words for that guy. I do want someone pay for this and all the Nick’s employees get as much money as possible. I just hope whoever does buy it understands the irony.

    Coronavirus and Its Impact

    We moved into a house right before things got really weird with the lockdowns, so we have been plenty busy working around here. I won’t lie and say that I’m not going a little stir crazy but my DIY skills are exponentially improving!

    Those super-teams (his best team actually) have hung exactly one championship banner in Cal’s entire tenure at UK. We are fast approaching 10 years since the last one, and never say never but I don’t see another one coming in the interim. Unless you get lightning in a bottle, that’s what happens when you randomly assemble 5 stars. And all this in the SEC. Not saying that league is down every year or anything, but it’s still the SEC. I think we can all agree that UK would be an upper-middle (like between 4-7) B1G team every year.

    What was your first/earliest memory of...

    Ha! I can’t say I was old enough to remember, but my dad is really proud that it wasn’t “mama” or “dada” but Uwe because of the crowd chants. Now my first real IU memory was walking out onto the court with my dad when all the lights were off, back around ‘89...a janitor found us right outside one of the tunnels and said “are you guys supposed to be here?” My dad apologized and we started walking off when the guy stopped us and told me to go stand at center court directly on the “I.” My dad said to walk out there alone, and after a minute or two all of the lights came on in the Hall and I stood there looking around. I was probably only 5 or so, but it was an incredibly important moment I’ll never forget.
