  1. No no...I believe it's Eric Burdon and he's an animal.

    College Bball Thread

    People seem to forget that BS graduated from DePauw with a degree in Economics...a three time Academic All-American candidate... worked for Eli Lilly before going to Butler to get into coaching. I can imagine that he always wanted to end up in the business side of the NBA...or that it became obvious to him that was more interesting than the coaching grind.

    I would rather think of him as maybe Benson 2.0. :)

    I'm in total agreement here.

    Just wanted to say thank you for all the recruiting updates and great information that you provide in your posts, CO66OF. I really appreciate the work/time you obviously spend keeping up with all the recruiting news for this board. A tip of the cap to you, sir!

    IUFB Offseason Updates

    I have a friend (an IU grad) who feels very similar to you, I think. He felt that we were lucky to beat PSU and they were actually pretty bad...and I'm guessing his thoughts also include the "it was a down year for the BIG". So, I just say IU has to keep moving forward and do it again. My friend is totally expecting a step backwards this season. It's another tough schedule for IU. GO HOOSIERS!!

    For those who don't know, Keith Appling was arrested Monday night for the fatal shooting of a 66 year old man west of Detroit.

    Guess his tough love doesn't work for every youngster these days. And then there's Luke Appling.

    One example would be Lynn Washington. He played two years for IU...1999 and 2000. Averaged less than 6 pts per game. 6'7" 230 lbs. Left IU and went to Japan where he played for something like 10 years. No, it wasn't the NBA, and he didn't make millions annually, but he made over 100k annually, which he invested back home. His housing and living expenses were all handled by his team. For a marginal college player he did pretty damn well... and he was good enough to be a perennial all star as well as being considered a legend in his Japanese pro league. **The key, ofc, is that you have to have the strength, guts, courage, faith, whatever you want to call it...to go overseas. Leaving home, strange language, strange culture, strange food...it's not easy. But it can be done...but it's not for everyone.
  10. He'll be heading to UK, I would have to think.

    Jaren Handy commits to Indiana

    HSN post states he's related to Fryfogle... as in cousins.

    He may be a good guy, but he's lacking something if all these young men aren't satisfied with their bb experience with him.

    My guess is that with Antigua and the other new asst. coach from Illinois they'll be able to induce a PG to come to Lexingburg.

    And why would IU want him?? He's not shown anything remotely remarkable in his relatively limited playing time at KY. He's completely average, IMO. I simply don't see a need or a good fit.
