    I really hope the guys on the gold team kicks ass in this one with the IU guys leading the way….

  • Moose

    Maybe Creek, Hulls and Watford can convince Orton that they play so well together that he should come to IU instead of UK……….

    Please tell us the brutal truth about how our kids do this weekend. No puffing or spinning.

    I really want to set my expectations at a realistic level. Usually we over hype our recruits and disparage the other guy's players. Is TC is looking at the undecided 6'11″ kid

  • jerryct

    Please give us the story about our kids straight. No puffing or spinning. We need to set our expectations realistically for next year.

    Sorry to be a bummer but the tendency is always to think our guys are better than their guys………..even when not true.

    I want the brutal truth ! This past season has helped me deal with brutality

  • Matt

    Why did they pick the ugliest team colors in the world? Gold and Black, really?

    Anyways, from a roster standpoint, I think the gold team rolls…

  • Kelin Blab

    Jerry are you saying Cem Dinc was over hyped 🙂

    “Kyryl Natyazhko, Undecided, 6?11?, Center”

    Is Crean looking? he must be good enough to make this field!!!

  • MikeyD

    Exactamente! I agree if he is in this field, then…? I posed the question to Evan D of scouts.com, is there a player out there that could raise our 09 ranking even higher than the 5-7 range where it stands now. Very interesting!!!

  • Ryan

    I'm interested on seeing how Jordan Hulls fares compared to our other recruits. I'm equally excited about all of them, but I think Hulls is very underrated, according to rivals and others. I've seen the highlight reels of him and I'm betting he wins the three point shootout. Furthermore, his high school won state and he was their star player. I don't know if he's won Indiana Mr Basketball YET, but if he hasn't, I'm sure he will. GO HOOSIERS!!!
