    By the way…what is with the tight white shirts under the uniforms? Is that the new style? I noticed several players are wearing that look. I DO NOT like that look at all. Just doesn't look good in my opinion.

    Jeremia Rivers

  • Kelin Blab

    Smitty I somewhat agree….I don't like the white lycra/spandex shirts under the jerseys with kids who have arms like my grandmother…..EJ went the the T SHIRT under the jersey which I have done personally but at least have A muscle on your arm….geez kids come on….

    Go Hoosiers!

    When was the last time the Hoosiers were favored by 19.5? Is Howard that bad? I know a guy named Howard that the Hoosiers would be a 19.5 favorite against. Are the Hoosiers getting some respect? Is Lucifer making a snowfort? Will Tijan Jobe dominate a game? Do pigs suddenly have feathers? What the heck is going on here? 19.5!

    I hope the Hoosiers are getting some love and will dominate the game tonight. I see a double-double from Watford and Rivers. Creek will go 3-5 from the arc and one fantastic-above-the-rim jam. Hulls will have 8 to 10 assists and Elston will come off the bench for double figures in scoring and half-a-dozen rebounds.

    Either that, or we will win by 2 or 3 points, we will have 18-25 turnovers and struggle to make 70 points. One or the other…..(hopefully the former).

    Their guards are their leaders and they match our size. I would not be surprised if we win a squeaker. I donot like being 19pt favorites so early in the year with such a young team. I would like to see TP with a a breakout game.

    Go Hoosiers!

    is it significant that its not an official? i know the differences between an official and an unofficial are slight, what i was thinking is that it leaves the door open for him to (officially) visit again later in the season… thoughts?

  • I believe he's only able to take unofficial visits until he takes the SAT or ACT.
