    This is off the topic, but is there anything about the rumor that Yogi probably announces his college decision on Nov 24?

    He made some statement (I think it was on Twitter,) that something big was going to happen November 24. I’m paraphrasing because I’m not on Twitter (and never will be,) but I’ve seen others reference it.

    Are there any conclusions to be drawn from the fact that while at least some of the team appears to be working on one court, Elston is working on free throws all by himself? Is he being held out of general practice?

  • Remember in the last game he left with a leg injury.

    Not so much now that I’ve been away for almost 15 years, but being a USI student would lead one to hate Evansville. That whole town was up U of E’s butt so bad it was nauseating, and there was a stretch there wiht USI’s teams (the D-II runner up and championship teams,) that I thought were better than U of E.
    I’m just glad the jettisoned those god-awful short-sleeved jerseys. It looked like they got them from the women’s softball team.

    what you hated the sherseys? (shirt/jerseys) Those things were as bad as Seton Halls spandex uniform.

  • Park Tudor’s first game is November 24, so that could be what he’s referencing.

    UE is terrible, have been for the past decade. They lost to a D3 team already, and one of f their wins is over a community college. I am from Evansville and have gone to a few of their games each year. Their only fan support comes from people 60+ who remember when they were a force in D2. If we don’t beat them by 35 or more I will be disappointed. I don’t mean to embarrass or belittle them on here (just sick of hearing old timers in Evansville talk about the lack of support they get), I am just trying to let people know what type of game this should be.

    Met CTC tonight! He was in Indianapolis at Covenant Christian High School watching Ron Patterson scrimmage against Covenant.

    Ron looked every bit as advertised, he is so built already and so athletic. He plays hard, he passes to the open man, he talks on defense, he drives, he rebounds, he shoots the 3, he shoots the step back J. His game reminds me so much of EJ.

    I always get nervous listening to Crean (or any coach) talk about their opponent. I watch the Big Ten teams as much as possible and I watch as many of our non-conference opponents as I can. But this early in the season, it’s hard to see Evansville or NC Central on TV. So, I look at at a team’s results so far this year. How can anyone call Evansville a good team? They have been beaten by Depauw, beat Kentucky Wesleyan by two and survived UTSA by four. You know we will get the Aces best shot but there is no way this should be a game past halftime.

    “His game reminds me so much of EJ”. that’s all I was thinking about while watching a highlight reel of him earlier.

    Finally saw KY last night….Fast, Young, Young, NO inside game…beatable!

    Meanwhile, looking at the effort, speed etc from MSU, IL, OSU and Minn this past week has me worried that we fans may be too optimistic this year.

    I have watched a number of games already and so far I have not seen a 3 with as poor a handle as CW or a PG as TO-prone as VJ3 on any of the good teams …………… we have a long way to go to get healthy, good and competitive.

  • JerryCT

    Ok, maybe Delaney vs KSU was a poor performance

    Those are the top 4 head and shoulders but the next tier is where we may break. I think the NCAAA will take 6 teams from the Big 10 and that might be do able.

    Don’t forget when NC State wore the singlets. It was a year or so after they won the championship, but even that win didn’t build up enough equity to get by with wrestling unies.

    Yeah, I’ve been gone from there for almost 15 years, so maybe it’s different. They had a decent program when I was there, too, and put a couple of guys in the NBA (Haffner’s 65-point game was my freshman year, and they had Dan Godfread, Scott Schreffler, etc.) But I know that USI runner-up team with Chris Bowles, Tyrone Tate, etc. would have given them fits.
    Maybe the fact that I was IN that media (worked at channel 7 for 3 or 4 years,) meant I had to hear even more about them.

    but are those 3s 6’9″ and built? I see the argument over his handles, but you also have to take into account the size matchup problems he will present.

    When you say ‘we’, you must just mean yourself. I’ve never heard anyone say they hold Marty Simmons in contempt for transferring from IU to UE. You must be the most irrational IU fan ever. Do you also hate Larry Bird? What about Jim Crews for recruiting an IU transfer?
