    Nope, if for no other reason than it took me about 90 secs of 1 viewing to know Grant Gelon couldn’t play.

    I wanted to bump this thread. I've got some personal **** going on. It involves a complicated situation with a friend of 10 years, that, well, yeah. It's a mess and so is she. But that's not the point. 

    I went to a softball tournament this weekend to watch my niece play. She pitches, and is kind of a badass. I'd been to this ballpark before, but not the particular tournament being played. Saturday was the end of national suicide prevention week. This tournament was labeled "Play for Peyton." Peyton was a young girl from Hamilton Southeastern. She was a softball player who struggled with her mental health, and as a result, took her life a few weeks short of starting college.

    I know we've all had our struggles. I've personally had some pretty low and dark moments recently. More so than I care to admit. Reach out to your friends. Your support group. Even with my own struggles, I am a phone call, text message, DM on Fight Club, etc. away. There was a powerful presentation and all the girls released balloons with messages of hope tied to them. Tear-inducing to say the least.
     
    Good thoughts and prayers for all of you here BtownBanners!
    I love you all!

    Va Tech visit write-up by their “Insider.” You know what’s notable here?  Nothing. Nothing at all. Half the folks around here could could have produced this. 2 things: 1) It’s easy to occasionally lose site of just how much more invested in, and sophisticated about, this stuff the IU fan base is than almost any other .I don’t know if Clowney’s visit was underwhelming or not, but I’m pretty confident that random Va Tech fans weren’t chanting his name in restaurants. 2) With guys like Mike Schumann and his contemporaries putting out great stuff pretty much non-stop, our access to information is just on a different level. It really is true, when IU basketball is hot they’re really isn’t anything like it.

    McNeil is listed as a 6'5" SG on 247 and a 6'5" SF on Rivals.  TDH calls him a guard.  Attends Richmond HS in Rockingham, NC.  He bills himself as 6'6" on his Twitter account @PaulMcneilJr with a GPA of 3.3.  Trent Markwith of Relentless Hoops called him one of the top performers he saw at Crossroads Elite in August saying:  "2024 G Paul McNeil took over the 3rd quarterfinal game at Crossroads Elite. Scored 15+ down the stretch, including 10 straight at one point. Showed great vision too. Impressive mixture of shooting, passing, and ball-handling at 6’6”.  From the same event, Eric Bossi referred to him as a potential 5-star talent.
