    IUBB - 2020 Off-Season News

    Have seen a couple social media items -- nothing official -- that Damon Bailey's father was killed and his mother seriously injured in a motorcycle accident last night. I can't find any confirmation, so I hope it's not true. But if it is, prayers to Damon and his family.

    (2021) PF Trey Kaufman

    I live in Southeastern Virginia, where there is extensive coverage of U.Va. sports. All those rumors of Bennett were just writers speculating when those jobs came open -- I don't believe there ever was any teeth to them. One of the reasons Bennett had no interest in IU is that he didn't want all the outside tasks that come with the job -- all the PR, etc. He just wants to coach. Plus, there's the fact that the relationship between IU and his sister ended poorly.

    The only thing I've ever seen about Bennett is some guy from CBS saying that if any college coaches were to go to the NBA, Bennett has the ability to do so. It was 100 percent his opinion -- and all he was saying was that Bennett had the credentials to make the jump. That's all it was. There was no notion or speculation that Bennett would leave for the NBA. It was just one guy saying he thought Bennett had the coaching acumen. Bennett isn't going anywhere. I'm not saying he will get Kaufman, but I cannot imagine him leaving U.Va. at this point. ... If Bennett turned down IU because he didn't want to be in a fish bowl, he certainly wouldn't want to coach in the NBA. U.Va. is the perfect situation for him -- a low-key program in which he's comfortable and can flourish.

    Aubrey Burks to IUFB

    This is why I'm always skeptical until the LOI is signed.

    Looks as if there will be B1G football this year ...

    Expendable IU sports

    The Minnesota sports, BTW, are ... men's tennis, men's gymnastics, men's indoor track and men's outdoor track.
  7. If there were an all-inclusive NCAA tourney, what the hell would Lunardi do? No bubble teams. No last four in. No first four out. He won't know what to do!
  8. BREAKING: The ACC says there will be no regular season. The 351-team NCAA tournament starts next week and will conclude in early April.
  9. His wife was seen texting with a Bloomington real estate agent!

    Dementia and Alzheimer's -- you suck!
  11. Three homers, two doubles, six RBIs -- not a bad little effort.

    Kyle Hornsby

    He was kind of an early version of Matt Roth ... Wasn't much of a facilitator. Wasn't a great rebounder. Wasn't much of a defender. But boy, could he shoot!

    IUBB - 2020 Off-Season News

    I'm an idiot (which most people who know me already realize) ... I didn't really even check the names and schools, I just noticed that TJD wasn't included. But since the B1G Network tweeted this and Andy Katz works for said network, I thought it was referencing the B1G's top 5 returnees -- I didn't realize it was the entire nation. Maybe TJD is a national top 5 returnee, maybe not. But I definitely would think he'd be considered one of the Big Ten's top 5 coming back.

    I'm not a huge believer in bulletin board stuff, and you have to consider the source -- I pretty much consider Andy Katz a doofus. But I hope TDJ posts this somewhere ...

    College Bball Thread

    Looks as if Lute Olson might not have much time left ... I found the wording on this a little odd, saying he's in the "fight of his life." When you go to hospice, you don't really go to fight. You go to be comfortable and hopefully have a peaceful final few days/weeks.
