    Kaufman could be really excellent.
    Their guards could really suck.
    The former will not compensate for the latter.

    Sounds like my youngest around that age(early 2000's). He just turned 26 and listens to 70s and 80s rock and Country. Smart man

    What if I told you that John Fogerty wasn't Born on the Bayou?  He was born in an upscale neighborhood in California.  Rob Zombie says he can never die, but he most certainly will.  Freddie Mercury really did not have a thing for fat bottom girls.
    I think I'm going to need more than "he was not a car mechanic"

    The Old Fart conundrum:
    Kid: "Old Fart dad, I just got the new Perry Como and Anne Murray releases. Can we play them?"
    Old Fart: "Get that new age hippie thug **** out of my sight. We're a Lawrence Welk house."

    Yes, for me the negotiation would go something like this:
    Kids: Can we listen to something obnoxious and loosely associated with music?
    Me: Are you paying for the car? Insurance? Gas? 
    Me: No? Then, enjoy your ear buds.

    I prefer intelligence gathering methods that don't require self torture. I also need calmer, more soothing music while driving in traffic or else the objectionable content that they hear may not be coming from their music, lol!

    I had told someone — maybe my brother? Maybe I posted it here somewhere? — that someday he’d get under an opposing star’s skin in a big game and throw him off, swinging the game 
    I realized this offseason that he already did! Obviously Ivey had a great second half when PU lost at IU last winter, but part of the reason IU hung in there in the first half was that Ivey was off his game, got a T throwing Trey to the ground, etc.
    And yes, his jumper is a swing skill for him as a player and for the team.

    I see "Crean and Archie" grouped together a lot, and I certainly understand why..... but to be clear, Crean is about 10x the coach as Archie and I enjoyed our teams play under Crean 100000x more than I did under Archie. 
    As some mentioned, Phinisee is just not a good player, the same should be said about Archie. He isn't a good coach and he certainly developed no one.

    Would like this to not be taken the wrong way but I'm sure it will. Why, from his perspective, would he show remorse for something he claims he never did? This is a "my word against theirs" case. 23 of the 24 cases have been settled and 2 grand juries declined to indict him. Point is that's all it'll ever be is a case of speculation. Did he do some sleazy stuff? Idk, maybe, probably. Are some of the allegations against him trumped up or exaggerated? Idk, maybe, probably. He will have sat out 1 2/3 seasons in the NFL. At what point are you satisfied with suspension? Should he never play again? Were his allegations so much worse than say Tyreek Hill, Ray Lewis, Kareem Hunt, Michael Vick...list goes on and on? Kids should be taught not to look at pro athletes or anyone of the like as a role model for personal conduct. Even the one's that seem to be super duper swell are probably not quite that. Can they look up to their athletic performance and on-field conduct? Absolutely. But for some type of moral compass? Yikes that's just not a good idea and there needs to be a distinction made between the 2 and that's the job of a parent or guardian. Mob mentality is a very strong thing in our world today and unfortunately it can, does and will ruin people's lives that may very well have never deserved it. I'm not saying that's the case here because idk but I'm also not going to stand on either hill for that same reason, idk.

    Since it's early September, I'm not going to worry too much about how the next class is going to finish out. I think we are in for the best season we have had in a long time. And I think that will put us on the map. We will get enough talent to compete and then it will be up to the staff to make them better. I have more faith in this staff than any since the Knight years. I don't believe that we have had anyone running the program who cares as much as CMW in probably a couple of decades. That alone makes me think we will be ok.

    My expectation is that Malik Reneau is pretty similar to a freshmen TJD in terms of talent. He won't have the same opportunity that TJD had as a freshmen because Reneau is coming into a much more talented team, but he should have a big impact on IU this season and should contribute from the beginning. He'll allow both TJD and Race Thompson to play less minutes and be more fresh for the postseason. 
    I expect that he'll be a pretty big upgrade over Michael Durr and a sophomore Geronimo. How he'll compare to a junior Geronimo remains to be seen. Either way, IU will have one of the best interior rotations in the country.
