    IU Baseball @ Iowa - May 19-21, 2022

    Good thing we compete against Purdue for the Governor's Cup and not Iowa.

    TJD is BACK

    This is incredibly satisfying after 3 straight seasons of hearing "next year we'll suck without TJD!!!"

    2022-23 IUBB Schedule

    I remember that team from the Crean era. Crean said it was like playing an SEC team because they were so quick and athletic.

    This pitching staff is hilariously bad. Mercer has to find a way to fix this in the offseason. It could cost him his job if he doesn't. This is the third time this season we scored 14 or more runs in a game and still lost. Just inexcusable for Big Ten pitchers to be this bad.

    NIL and IU

    Probably pull someone over and ask them "Do you know how fast you was goin'?"

    Maybe not the thread for it, but not a good look for Fred Glass's legacy to have this come up after what happened with Kevin Wilson.

    Always nice to find out that a bottom of the barrel in the conference program that's light years behind its competitors is being run by a complete a$$clown. Get rid of this guy ASAP.

    Really, really want these last couple months to be a period of time we look back on in the future as the beginning of the end for Purdue basketball being a legitimate threat.

    NIL and IU

    NCAA: "We're gonna pass rules saying you can't give players money!" Boosters: "Oh yeah? And what are you gonna do when we pay them anyway?" NCAA: (shrugs shoulders, turns and walks away) "Nuthin'..."

    NIL and IU

    Let's pretend our wealthiest donors put their heads together and crafted an NIL plan that brought a reincarnated Fab 5 to IU. I wouldn't care if we had players cashing checks at halftime of games as long as they won the damn banner. I'm sick and tired of being an afterthought in college basketball. No one cares about programs that "do it the right way," they care about the ones who win. We don't win because for decades, we've been saddled with people who don't want to take risks and insist on doing everything the hard way. We've wasted so much time and opportunities all while our biggest competitors lapped us. Would you like to live in a world where IU is an NIL behemoth, and programs like Purdue and Wisconsin are afterthoughts? I would.

    I was a little surprised Purdue's early entrants stayed on the board as long as they did. I saw a mock last fall of Karlaftis going 5th overall...he went 30th. Others had David Bell going in the second round; the Browns finally took him in the fourth. I wonder if they just had bad days at the combine or if they were a by-product of the Jeff Brohm hype machine.

    He may have also gotten an idea of what a Michael Lewis practice would be like compared to a James Whitford practice.

    2022-2023 IUBB Roster Projection

    There were IU fans convinced he could be a one and done after the Bahamas trip last summer. Maybe that's where the talk started.

    Mike Woodson and His Coaching Staff

    I went looking for that commercial and found this gem instead:

    Really starting to question this kid's judgment. Committed to Stetson without ever visiting. Transferred after a few months, supposedly had a girlfriend at BSU. Got a waiver to play immediately due to some obscure mental health condition, even though BSU had a terrible coach who was on the hot seat and was later fired. Now, a month after hiring Lewis, he hops into the portal just days before the deadline to maintain immediate eligibility. He had an NIL deal with someone in Muncie, too.
