    Seems to me the system worked there. They settled the lawsuit which means the kid will almost certainly not be worrying about college money. They acted irresponsibly and there was a penalty.  The media is never going to be perfect. The important thing is for there to be a mechanism to punish irresponsible behavior.  
     
    CNNs rating are up over the last year so not sure how they have tanked btw.  I’m a little surprised by that since their audience skews younger I would have thought cord cutting would have hit them.

    DChoosier got a reaction from IU/Butler/Notre Dame in (2021) G Luke Brown to...Stetson?   
    I saw a 2017 attendance list for all NCAA schools and Stetson averaged 866 fans per home game that year. 
    I also saw a 2019-2020 attendance list, that did not look as “official”, that showed they drew a season total of 8,029 home fans with attendance at games ranging between 15-535.
    I would think it would be a bit of a letdown to play in front of such small crowds but he knows what he is signing up for.Good luck to the kid. Must have really liked the coaching staff, or style and/or just saw a good fit for himself.  
    Have to give him props for having more Btown  Banners recruiting pages of posts (74) than Aminu, Wesley, Miller, Duncomb and Kaufman combined!! LOL.

    It's sad/funny that I had this idea 11 days before the president did. Funny how the pressure of losing voters can cause someone to so drastically alter their opinion.

    DChoosier reacted to Brass Cannon in Coronavirus and Sports Only - PLEASE and THANK YOU   
    What I am saying is that if we had some positive tests but things were generally getting better they probably wouldn’t have shut it down.  But with things getting worse and positive tests there’s really no choice. 
     
    People not wearing masks is going to cost us sports till 2021.  Ugh

    The people making those recommendations know what they're talking about, it's kind of their job.  I don't get it.
    Canada must feel like they live in the apartment above a meth lab.  Maybe that's the plan, make the virus feel this country is so hopelessly screwed that it doesn't need to help and just leaves.

    Take a look at the EU vs USA Covid curve. We are doing abysmally compared to virtually every “first world” country.

    I believe what he’s trying to communicate is that there is no way to completely eliminate any chance of transmitting or contracting COVID, but trained medical professionals have consistently recommended certain  practices that greatly reduce transmission and contraction.
    The poster you’re arguing with is simply expressing that he’s trying his best to reduce, not eliminate the chance of transmission or contraction; he’s trying to be responsible. 
    How anyone can argue with or nitpick at that is beyond me.

    Quite a strawman argument.  Not sure why you continue to get on people who are doing things to try to help slow the spread.

    DChoosier got a reaction from HoosierDYT in IU Football Off-Season   
    I’m in the “let’s be cautious camp”, and doubt games, if they take place, will be played in front of a meaningful number of fans but......if we do proceed with conference games why not allow non-conference games that involve a bus trip and do not require a hotel stay? Why is it theoretically “safe” to play Ohio State but unwise to play nearby Ball State?  I understand not wanting a team to pile on a plane for a 5 hour flight to the West Coast, with maybe 2 nights of hotels, but a short drive to Muncie?
    In any case I think there is at best a 50-50 chance that games will be played at all.

    Brumdog is accurate..
    Initially 75% of the posters were commenting Archie would at least make the tourney his first year while most of the rest said it would take the second. On the day he was hired you would have been ridiculed if you predicted “three years from now Archie will get us to 9-11, and tied for 10th, in the Big Ten”. Since year one the goal posts have been moved.
    Things have progressed more slowly than many hoped/predicted but fortunately that is now past history and the state of the program (and the roster) definitely seems to be on the upswing and I think this upcoming year will be very good.

    Just a warning....as the kids arrive and grow so does your wife’s winning percentage. I was right 50-60% of the time before kids but am currently down to zero.

    Archie is better than Crean.
    That being said, your initial roster cherry picking is almost funny as you do not mention seniors Robert Johnson and Hartman (not to mention non-senior Morgan, Davis, Smith, Al). Did Archie inherit a “contender”, no....but he clearly inherited more than Crean did at Georgia.
