    Have yourself a round, bro! Golf has found its way back into my life in a big way. I’m no better, mind you. But I am committed to buying new clubs until I am.

    If stats are accurate at 68 min we have 25 shots to their 1. We’re up 1-0.

    I don’t disagree. I think he’ll be a steadying force all season.

    (2022) - SG C. J. Gunn to INDIANA

    Of the bench guys CJ has an ocean of opportunity in front of him. I like the Scoop reference because I want CJ to do the opposite of what Scoop did; get playing time and immediately forget every practice and game plan and just try to be a star. If CJ plays a patient, hard working role and then hits the shots that come to him within the game plan, then he could be a huge part of this team, and eventually earn a little more freedom out there. Ideally hitting more than he did last year… But now I’m shuddering thinking of Geronimo out there, another “potential” guy. The whole team had to make up for his defensive miscues.

    That was my thought too! Dude has length like crazy, balance and coordination. Real easy to see the ranking. Nuts that we have his talent and we aren’t even relying on him to be a star.

  11. Oh whateverrrrr. It’s a change for sure. I do love the west coast. If I cared more about CFB I’d likely have a different reaction. The B1G is a little boring so an infusion of new teams and playing styles can be good. It’s a pro-league at this point anyway so the coast to coast thing isn’t a big deal. Schedules for BB should be more balanced, and winning the conference will be even more impressive. Why does it feel like at NCAA offices they’re still spending more time arguing over executive parking spots and vending machine choices than addressing their loss of control.

    The more I think about it the more I like Galloway starting at the 2. He’s very efficient when he does shoot, he just doesn’t look for his own shot much. And then he does everything else well. Isn’t that somewhat ideal? We have plenty of guys who will be hunting their own shots. Usage will never be even, and isn’t really intended to be. If Trey keeps hitting over 40% when he does take a 3, and drives when the right opportunity is there, his skill set is about ideal, no?
  15. Im with Stuhoo on this. Real tough to play the academic superiority card, but then be so disorganized that you consistently trip over this stuff. Big, nationally embarrassing headlines time after time. Feels like some quick emails to the right departments would have given a clear green or red and avoided it. Also… I’m happy with my IU degree and all, but have no problem admitting that IU is a step or 3 below Michigan. UM simply is a prestigious academic institution. I don’t think it’s any kind of knock if IU can admit someone that UM doesn’t. As others have mentioned Live was in good academic standing at UNC, there are no red flags here. Do I want Love on the team? UNC fans were happy to see him go. We’re already dealing with a lot of ins, a lot of ours, a lot of what have yous. So what’s one more?! Heck yes get him here if Woody wants him. Also have a super soft birthday, guys! Pitter patter!
