    Just reviving the thread since we're in the middle of golf season.  Went on a three day trip to Perry Park in Kentucky to play with my dad....he's 77 so don't know how many more golf trips he'll have in him, so thought it was a good time to go on one.  Went there in the middle of a heat wave.....upper 90s on two of the days and the first day was our arrival day and didn't tee off until one.
    Had a shot on a par three whose divot was an inch from the hole and end up about two and a half and a half feet away.  Getting a hole in one still on my bucket list.....I've had a ball literally lodge into the green an inch short of the cup on a wet day and have had another shot rim out.

    I guess the NCAA will automatically make us a top 4 seed.  Seems like they reward out of conference SOS regardless of result.

    Every team can have two two-way players.  I’d be a little surprised for him to be a ‘permanent’ part of their roster.  He was bottom tier in pretty much every drill at the combine.  IMO he’s the typical good college player who isn’t athletic enough to stick around in the NBA.

    I’m just over it.  I’ve wanted to play Virginia for years. When we are good we seem to play Duke and UNC. When we aren’t good we still can’t play Virginia.

    Purdue boards are indicating talk that since leaving the NBA his weight had reached 400+ pounds and he was diabetic but was not trying to control it.  Posts there said his organs were shutting down and he died of cardiac arrest.  Just rumors but I do know prior to going to Purdue he was very heavy and had to work himself into playing shape.

    Redshirted right away on a team that could have used his shooting.  And then the past two seasons he started out decently and at the first sign of him not hitting shots gave up on him.
    One thing he can do that Purdue seriously lacks is play defense.

    We had 6 double digit wins in conference:  at home against Nebraska by 13, at home against Ohio State by 16, at home against Minnesota by 13, at home against Penn State by 17, at Maryland by 13, and at home against Maryland by 10.
    In terms of losses, we had four double digit losses:  at home against Michigan by 18, at home against Illinois by 17, at Michigan State by 15, at Ohio State by 11....but that was in OT.
    Overall, IU outscored their opponents by 1 point in Big Ten regular season play.  Our numbers said we were a 10-10 team and our record was 9-11.

    I always find it interesting what they define a 'starter' to be.  Duke had six players that started at least 25 games;  three started 39 games, the others started 25, 26, and 27 games.  Those bottom three all averaged at least 24 minutes per game.
    Anyway, if you simply go by the number of games started, Duke had:
    Pablo Banchero -- freshman so not a part of the program the year before.
    Wendall Moore -- averaged 28 minutes per game and started 18 of Duke's 24 games the previous year.
    Mark Williams -- averaged 15 minutes per game but did start 15 games the previous year.
    Jeremy Roach -- averaged 27 minute per game the year before and started 18 of their 24 games.
    Trevor Keels -- freshman so not a part of the program the year before..
    (even if you replace Keels with Griffin, who started one less game, you are still putting in a freshman.
    So Duke only had 3 of the 5 starters on the previous team;  those three were all starters (although Williams didn't get starter's minutes) but they only accounted for 70 minutes per game of action the previous year.
    ------------------------------
    North Carolina:
    Armando Bacot:  started 28 of UNC's 29 games the year before, averaged 23 minutes
    Caleb Love:  started 26 games the year before, averaged 28 minutes
    Brady Manek:  was at Oklahoma the previous year
    R.J. Davis:  started 10 out of 29 games the previous year, averaged 22 minutes per game
    Leaky Black:  started 28 games the year before, averaged 28 minutes.
    So four of the five were on UNC the year before;  three were starters.  they totalled 101 minutes, so they basically played half of the minutes the previous year.
    ------------------------------
    Villanova
    Collin Gillespie:  started 20 games the previous year, averaged 33 minutes
    Justin Moore:  started 24 games the previous year, averaged 33 minutes
    Jermaine Samuels:  started 24 games the previous year, averaged 29 minutes
    Eric Dixon:  no starts the previous year, averaged 8 minutes per game
    Brandon Slater:  only 2 starts, averaged 17 minutes per game.
    So all five were in the program the previous year, three were starters, and they played 120 minutes per the game the year before (60% of the minutes.
    ---------------------
    Kansas:
    Ochai Agbaji:  started 30 games previously, averaged 34 minutes
    Christain Braun:  started 30 games previously, averaged 31 minutes
    David McCormack:  started 21 games, averaged 28 minutes
    Jalen Wilson:  started 27 games, averaged 28 minutes
    Dajuan Harris:  started just 2 games, averaged 16 minutes.
    Four were starters;  they averaged 137 minutes (68.5% of the minutes.
