    I like it when you talk dirty to me! Any other names you are hearing, grad transfers?

    IUBB - 2020 Off-Season News

    I could get on board either way (sitting or not) but it might be better for IU if he does. Who was the last real rim-protector we had? Jeff Newton?

    2020 General Recruiting Thread

    Completely agree. The only issue I have is if TJD leaves after next season IU would have a true Fr & R/S Fr as their only post players. (I don't consider Thompson a B1G center)

    I don't know who all those teams have, but that seems like a salty non-con.

    I fixed that for you :)

    IUBB - 2020 Off-Season News

    Thompson starting at the 5 will tank my expectations for the season. I like him at the 4 and assume some spot mins here or there at 5, but he is not a starting B1G or even Power 5 center, IMO. I'd love to see a Grad Transfer C come in.

    Coronavirus and Its Impact

    This article does a decent job of expressing how I feel: https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/trying-to-protect-everyone-we-exposed-the-most-vulnerable-to-the-virus/ar-BB14mOvu?ocid=msedgntp I think the US response to COVID-19 damaged our economy AND health in the process. That may have been understandable for the first few weeks, but now 2+ mos later "we" still don't seem to get it.

    Indiana MBB 20-21 Rotation Discussion

    What if I wear my Axe body spray, hmmmm? Is there any chance we have the exact same starting line-up as last season: Rob, Al, Smith, TJD & Brunk?

    Yes, I have a couple in AR's (5.56 & 9mm) and I am a fan. Would like to get one for an AK too.

    I like Commie guns too. Wolverines!! Is that a PSA?

    What kind of can do you have on there?

    I'm no collector, but I might have a few :) Just picked up a pretty nice Browning Hi-Power I'm going to shoot this weekend. Feels really good and makes me wonder why I didn't get one before. I go through phases in what I like to shoot. Recently it's pistol caliber carbines (or AR 'pistols') before that was bullpups and before that a couple of 80% "glocks" I built. Of course, like any gentleman, I shoot suppressed whenever possible.

    Why would Michigan want him? He is a good defender, decent ball-handler.....but pretty clearly a head-case and a negative offensively. I suppose he'll be able to play right away, but would love for him to eat a scholarship at Michigan for 2yrs.

    I think so too. I didn't hear anything I disagreed with (other than him saying "I like the Purdue players"!) There are several coaches I detest, Painter isn't one of them. I think he runs a clean program and teaches a good brand of basketball. I enjoy watching his team fail, but I think he's a decent human being. Lots of P5 coaches don't qualify for that, IMO.

    I would expect them to say that. Still, they can say what they want, having your only 2 Seniors transfer out for no obvious reason isn't a good look. I read that Eastern isn't even a Grad transfer- so will have to sit a year! That is motivation to bolt. Apparently his mom was a lively contributor on the Purdue boards too. They appear to have some decent young talent, but not elite. A roster full of young guards and indifferent defenders screams "10th in the conference" to me.
