    Micah McFadden - New York Giants

    As a fellow Giants fan I’m very happy about this. They should’ve picked a Micah last year too, but this one to be excited about. Gotta get the stench of Gettleman out of that stadium!

    Bloomington Hotels

    Thanks everyone. Looks like the La Quinta is at least under $400/night…not ideal but it may just be a one night trip. I could always forgo the hotel and go paratrooping instead.

    Bloomington Hotels

    I’m planning a trip for this fall, likely the Maryland game on Oct 15th. This may be homecoming, but I haven’t seen anything officially announced yet. Am I losing my mind or are hotel prices in Bloomington insane right now? $700+ a night are the rates I’m seeing that weekend.

    Ranking: Best CBB Programs the last Decade

    Does last decade include Kentucky’s 2012 title? Don’t understand how they’re below Michigan if it does. Otherwise nice work, would be nice to see some data behind this.

    If it was south of 17th then he’s a huge idiot instead of an idiot.

    And then there were none…
  9. It definitely helps expedite a rebuild. The downside is between transfers and 1&done, it’s getting harder to connect with players and identify them as a “true Hoosier” or a “real Dukie.”
  10. So what’s the portal rule now? Grad transfers are immediately eligible, but do underclassmen need to sit a year again or is it still immediate eligibility for everyone?

    Are folks now off the Ben McCollum train since he had a down year going 32-5?

    Also thought he got fouled there.
  14. Nine teams in the tournament and the conference will be lucky to have two teams get through to the second weekend. Plenty of competitive teams, but still only one national title in the last 31 years. Another year, the same story. So what can be done about this? IU has had its own issues the last 20 years, but it is not just an “us” problem. Should we start the BTT a day earlier and end on Saturday? Should the conference officiating change to allow for a more finesse style of play that translates to the NCAAT? We’re getting plenty of talent and usually fielding several contending teams a year, but come tournament time it’s egg after egg. What else is there to it?

    Not a clue, honestly.
