And finally, they’ve all surfaced, let’s move on

jamarcus_ellis.jpgDespite the fact that nearly everybody associated with the Indiana program is moving on to the future, we’ve still received a few requests for updates on the departed from last season.

We’ve tracked Kelvin Sampson, Brandon McGee, Jordan Crawford, Eli Holman, Armon Bassett, DeAndre Thomas and you can all sleep easy now that Jamarcus Ellis has surfaced at Oklahoma City University.

As much as I’d like to keep an eye on the progress of these fine young men at their new institutions, they’re no longer a part of the IU family and will be treated as such on this very blog.

Translation: Unless you hit up the archives, you won’t be reading about McGee, Crawford, Holman, Bassett, Thomas or Ellis around these parts. Sampson is a different story because we’ll always welcome opportunities for cheap shots until the NCAA dust settles. (We’ll also welcome your attempts at heckling him when he returns for the Bucks and Pacers later this season in Conseco Fieldhouse.)

  • I don't know, man. I'm still going to blog about Eli Holman if I want to. Ha.

  • Can we get some more Josh Smith news then, since he'll always be a part of the IU Family?

    The most interesting part of Ellis' bio:

    Personal: Majoring in kinesiology

    Wasn't he dismissed for grades? That's not an easy major.

  • Kinesiology is hit or miss. I would say, as a gross generalization, kinesiology majors and schools like HPER tend to either be really good, serious majors (like at IU), or jokes where athletes are stuffed (like it used to be at Michigan).

    Why dont you follow all the stories of schools that break rules and do not get investigated by the NCAA. I hear ya with still wanting to hammer Sampson but once again you should be more angry at the NCAA. This site has given the NCAA a free pass and decided to hammer Sampson but I'm not jumping on the hammer Samson bandwagon. THEY WERE PHONE CALLS PEOPLE!! Every player that leaves USC has a story that follows them about how much money they got while at SC and the NCAA does absolutely nothing. Get mad at the real problem, Myles brand and the NCAA. I hope Sampson has a great carrier and makes lots of cash doing so. I will never lay all the blame on him and I am still a Sampsonite!

    The thing of it is dumb ass is the fact that he already got busted for it once, came to IU said he wasn't going to do it again and what happened, he did it again. and its not only the phone calls its the kids he brought in, great ball players but not student 19 f's were recorded 19!! that is completely unacceptable. Sampson was a great coach that made a mistake all be it a very minor thing to me but he still did it and did it twice. that is why the beef and the fact he doesnt have the balls to talk about it.
