    2020-2021 NBA Thread

    The Pacers are always going to be the Pacers. I enjoyed the ABA years and a bit of Reggie Miller days. After the brawl, I pretty much checked out.

    College Bball Thread

    You got that right. I always hate narratives that are based on one side of the story. I have no love for Wisconsin, but one sided stories are the opposite of journalistic responsibility.

    (2022) - SF Justin Taylor to Syracuse

    Sounds like tapering and I'm sure things are going to get messy. Like wild, wild west messy. Given the current state of the NCAA, there's really no incentive not to get down in the dirt.

    Couldn't agree more. I posted something similar in the another thread. No doubt someone on staff is responsible for monitoring and researching guys in the portal.

    (2022) PF Jalen Washington to UNC

    I have no doubt we will get some guys out of our '22 targets. But possibly not everything we want. The portal will be a familiar and and nice tool to fill out the roster, especially for a coach who used something very similar in the NBA.

    (2022) PF Jalen Washington to UNC

    If we fail to find what we want in the recruiting cycle, expect CMW to hit the portal. I think that will be plan B going forward. Coach is well versed in the free agent market and I expect him to exploit it.
  7. Sounds like someone has finally gotten serous about basketball.

    College Bball Thread

    All things considered, I'll take our hire over UNC's or Duke's. I think the NBA connection is the way forward for college coaches wanting the best talent available.

    (2021) SG Tamar Bates to INDIANA

    Age does seem to compress people. Over the last 65 years I've lost about an inch and a half. I think I'm going to like young Mr Bates quite a bit.

    IndyCar thread

    Great to see an almost normal 500. And a very deserving winner.

    Bloomington Food Choices

    I visited the Tao a lot while I was in grad school in 1976. I had my 3 year old daughter with me and she loved their grilled cheese sandwiches. It was also the only place I could get sassafrass tea. Noble Romans was probably the only pizza place I went to back then.
  12. I think we hired an upfront, honest, soft spoken coach who is also a hard @$$. It's about time!

    2021 Transfer Portal

    I wonder how much of that contributed to Dane Fife wanting to get out of there. I'm hoping a lot. I don't want to think that we hired someone who was OK with what was going on in that athletic department. For the record, I don't think we did. Time will tell.

    (2022) - SF Justin Taylor to Syracuse

    Just from reading these recruiting threads, we seem to be playing in the big boy pool now. CMW and staff are not messing around.
  15. CMW seems all about development. This is a chance to show his chops.
