    IU Autographs

    Not sure if anybody is interested, but I was going through some of my old stuff and ran across this program that I got from the IU basketball banquet back in 1984. There are still grease stains from the fried chicken we had for dinner. As much of a thrill as that was for a chubby eleven year old Nerdvana, the real highlight was that players and coaches stuck around for autographs afterwards. I wish I could've got the whole team, but we had a pretty limited amount of time before everyone had to leave. As I remember, the wait for Steve Alford's autograph was way longer than everyone else.

    Baseball and basketball cards

    This is a timely thread for me because I very recently started to go through all the cards I inherited to see what I have that's worth anything. Like many of you, I got into card collecting in the 1980s when it was huge. I have tons of relatively worthless cards from the junk wax era, but I was gifted quite a few vintage cards as well. None of it is remotely close to mint condition, but I have some interesting stuff.

    Looks like Deion is headed to Colorado.

    Fire Tom Allen

    This represents every IU coach I remember and the only person on this list that left for another head coaching job is Sam Wyche. IU is the Siberia of college football coaching jobs.

    IU Trustee Election

    I just don't understand the extreme goofiness. For those of you not in Bloomington, he put up a ridiculous billboard on the 45/46 bypass here in town. Obviously, that cost some real money. If he just ran as a serious candidate with a focus on athletics, I think that might resonate with a lot of alumni. This whole thing reeks of nothing more than a publicity stunt to drawn attention to his podcast (or whatever he does).
  9. Exactly. This is the prototypical Indiana kid that IU has ignored over the past two decades, Then they end up going to Butler and putting up 25 points against us.
  10. Just watched the video... How can you not like Mike Woodson? I fully admit that I was initially underwhelmed with the hire, but I've quickly been won over by his genuineness.

    Can confirm

    Archie. Miller. Fired.

    Sure, I may be bad at my job, but I'm nowhere near "let's pony up $10 million dollars to get rid of you" level of bad. I need to get a lot worse, I guess.

    General New Coach News

    Interesting. Any idea why the trustees are hesitant to make the move? I'm assuming it's because of the buyout. Regardless of what people think of Archie, he's a lame duck coach. No recruit with any real options is going to want to come to this mess.
