    Just don't understand how an Ohio State can pull that off but we can't. Pulling an out of state 5 star is no problem for them. DJ Carton leaves, no problem, just snag Bruce Thornton from SEC country.

    Hopefully Georgia, worried about Purdue with their momentum recently though. Has he even visited IU or PU? Can't remember who else is in his top 5.
  3. Woof. Spin this any way you want, but this month has been rough. Losing 2 of your top 3 recruits left to Purdue and Creighton is not good. It just looks bad. Aminu Mohamed would take the sting off a bunch, but we already have Galloway, Leal, and Geronimo there so it's not really a position of need. He would definitely be the best of the bunch though. Recruiting is a brutal game man. It almost NEVER works out the way you want or think it will.
  4. Recruiting never goes as well as you hope. Not long ago some were wondering if landing Kaufman took us out of the running for Mason Miller, and were convinced we could take both. Ugh.

    It's a tough move, but ultimately the right call. After all, kids who are of high school age only have roughly a 99.998% chance of surviving once they show symptoms of the virus.

    A university asking for more money. That's rich.

    Smh, nothing but fear porn at this point. Students are much better off on campus amongst thousands of their young & healthy peers than at home in closer contact with people at higher risk in their own families. In my county, Notre Dame has dozens of new cases every day, but no hospitalizations so far. Even with the students here, the 7-day positivity rate is at 3.1%. Your logic implies we need a worldwide full lockdown until the virus kills itself off.

    Is there any update on fan attendance at college basketball games? Hopefully a limited amount of fans will be allowed in to give something resembling an atmosphere.

    College Bball Thread

    "I haven't educated myself well enough on Adolph Rupp or just the whole situation at hand to really give you my thoughts on it. From what I do know, I would like to see a name change" Had to do a double take because this sounds like something Lebron James would say. Those 2 sentences sum up everything that is wrong with the outrage culture today. Just go with your feelings. Facts and context never matter, just jump to your own conclusions before the whole story comes out. Don't wait for evidence, your feelings are hurt so go crucify somebody for it. The more time goes by, I'm so glad we never got Brooks.

    That piece of underwear you wear on your face ain't doing sh1t to keep others or yourself from getting infected. But if it's what it takes to avoid another round of shutdowns then so be it.

    And apparently now there are questions as to whether or not a vote to cancel the fall football season was even held. I'd link Nicole Auerbach's twitter if I knew how, but evidently there are a few ADs/college presidents who don't know if a vote even took place. Adding that to the non-answers from Warren, and things are starting to look rather peculiar.

    It's just bad optics all around. A week after the B1G releases their conference-only schedule for the fall, the season gets cancelled. Say what you want, but that is the result of poor leadership. I have little to no hope this season will be played in the spring. It will look even worse on the conference if the Big 12, ACC, and SEC play in the fall. It will be hard enough for schools like Ohio State to recruit the south after all this if the SEC plays and B1G doesn't, so I can't imagine how hard it will be for schools like IU.

    Kevin Warren is an idiot. He's just kicking the can at this point. His incompetence is going to cause the conference he oversees to be even less relevant on a national scale as recruits spurn B1G schools in favor of those who will play. My biggest frustration amidst all of this is that I don't see how you can pretend to care about the physical health of athletes amidst a pandemic, but continue to rake in millions if not billions by turning a blind eye to CTE.

    Apparently he gave the vaccine to one of his daughters. If that's the case, my guess is that she will be the one who has balls pretty soon due to God knows what else is in that vaccine.

    How come, did someone test positive on the team? Oh, and Go Cavemen!
