    Maybe he'll protest the move by refusing to do any of the games for the BIG. We can only hope.

    Well, this news certainly can't hurt IU's chances with the West Coast kids they've started recruiting.

    That game does a lot more for Davidson than it does for Purdue.
  4. There's no way Purdue cheerleaders could qualify for Modern Dog mag, maybe the rear end special of Potbelly Pig Monthly, but not Modern Dog.

    No, I don't think you attacked me. Not at all. I just think you rushed to dismiss a counterpoint with out stating or in this case re-stating your own position. I did miss the prior post where you clearly stated your reasoning, so mea culpa. No, it'll be Scheyer that's knocks them out of the elite category, if it happens. I wouldn't mind seeing IU helping him along by giving an L to this year's much hyped team.

    I kind of disagree with that. A more marketable game has the potential to appeal more to future recruits than a less marketable one, at least in the short term. A win over Virginia, though they're likely to be a very good team, will be unlikely to have the same cachet with recruits as a win over a possible title contender in UNC or an overhyped Duke. If there is any chance Booker comes to IU and he hasn't decided by that point, being in the crowd for a raucous win over Duke likely helps IU's case far more than a win over Virginia would as an example.

    I don't disagree that he'll make it and probably has already done enough to earn it, given some of the other HoF members, but I don't see a reason to proclaim it before it actually happens. The second part was mostly tongue in cheek. I see a lot more benefit to playing those two as well.

    It'd saved us both a lot of posts if you bothered stating your own position earlier instead of simply assailing mine. I sympathize with the UNC/Duke fatigue and share it to a large extent. The difference is I'd rather see IU play them and put a nail in the coffin of their relevance, not just avoid them while other team's do so. Duke, especially is just waiting to be knocked down several rungs, IMO.

    So now we've already inducted Bennett into the HoF? What's next erecting a statue in his honor? He certainly has every opportunity to get there, especially with the two predominant ACC programs sporting new, unproven coaches, but can we at least wait until he actually earns it before anointing him the second coming of John Wooden? I have to admit though, I am coming around to the idea of playing Virginia in the Challenge. Maybe a reasonably solid IU win will reduce this odd fetish some have for Virginia.

    I'm talking specifically to btownqb, who had yet to give an actual reason. I already acknowledged the UNC/Duke fatigue reason, which is the only compelling reason I've seen yet.

    I can see why some wouldn't want to play Louisville this year but I'd have no problem kicking them while their down. Syracuse might be if IU hadn't just played them. The same for FSU. Miami would be better choice. I'm still waiting on a compelling reason to want to play UVA so badly.

    Maybe, maybe not but it is at least debatable. Which of the two looks better to recruits is much less so, IMO. Who said every year? You're leaping all over the place, the conversation is about the coming year. Although, I'd prefer to not play UVA unless they were a clear cut national title contender or there was some other compelling reason. As it stands, I don't see any real, desirable reason to want to play Virginia this year or most others for that matter. What is so appealing about playing Virginia? I can understand not wanting to play Duke or UNC but there are other better options than UVA.

    I thought we were discussing who we'd prefer to see IU play in the Challenge. Being a likely better resume builder is a tertiary reason I'd rather see IU play Duke than Virginia. I would assume those wanting to see Virginia are factoring more into it than entertainment value as well.

    No, there isn't, which makes a win potentially worth a whole lot more than just a check on the positive side of the ledger or bump in the tournament resume.
