    I read demling thinks we are in good shape with KI, and he said there is a possibility of Gilcrest visiting IU's elite camp…..

    Demling also said all things teague point towards L'Ville still

    Is there a Mo Creek 'watch' on for this Sunday ? His feelings about IU may have influence over KI and then KI on Gilchrist. There is a latin saying which escapes me that means ” One man tells another”.

    Bob Hammel got his recognition from following around Bob Knight like he was some sort of demigod. He’s a vanilla writer and does a better job writing a column. If Bob Knight didn’t exist and hadn’t need Hammel as a cushion between himself and the world, no one would know who Hammel even is.
