    That just doesn’t look fair

  • MillaRed

    Was this crowd chanting, “Tyler’s better” and then “Boiler Up?”

    My God do they teach them how to envy IU at birth? Funny stuff.

    The most impressive part of this video was Cody attempting to lead a fast break. The kid can move!

  • HoosierFromCT

    when you almost double the other team’s score, on the road, maybe it doesn’t make sense for the crowd to chant “Tyler’s better”. I don’t mind the “Boiler up” chant, it’ll just prepare CZ for when he goes to Wakey and drops a 20-20 game…

  • Luke72

    Something not pointed out very offen is that Cody has great hands! Should be quite an Indiana All star Team this year!

    They were chanting “Tyler Zeller,” “Tyler’s Better,” “Boiler Up,” and in the fourth qurter while he sat, the kids chanted “You got benched,” but by the end they chanted “Sign my shirt” and “We want Zeller.”

    I felt bad at times for Owen Valley. They were down 20-0 to start the game. They wouldn’t drive because they were scared of Zeller.

    Two things I noticed were his hands and his movement. So smooth. During warmups he just shot 20-foot jumpers and never missed. It was amazing.

    Wow, that is a 3A school ? Was going to ask why Washington was playing a 1A school this late in the season. I know CZ makes a lot of other kids look smaller than they really are but those poor kids looked like they were from some small barely populated community. Even so I can easily see why he is a Burger Boy.

    The stupid chants were there, the kind of score we’re looking for was there, we saw CZ dominating the other team, the only thing missing was the real PUke team.

    It’s Owen county. That is about the most excitement they will have there for a while. I always chalk that up to students having a good time. It doesn’t sound like they had much else to cheer about. I really thought the PU fans chanting IU sucks was pretty funny too. What do you expect them to chant? I had a Puck Furdue t-shirt in college, it goes with rivalries

    This isn’t necessarily the best place to post this, maybe the Mcdonald’s All-American announcement post would be better, but has anyone stopped lately and thought about how important Cody Zeller’s commitment was? I mean, we’ve had a few months of actual basketball to follow, but think of how our view of the current teams play would be changed if next years class was Etherington and no one, with us pulling another Moses Abraham spring decision all-nighter; Yogi had committed to, say, Butler to play with Zeller, and IU hadn’t gotten any of the 2013 kids or maybe none of the 2012’s. Certainly we wouldn’t be as high on next year’s team…and most definitely we’d probably be a bit more bitter about this year’s team, as well.

    I mean, Zellerpalooza was kind of a joke (well, more than kind of, it was called Zellerpalooza after all) but looking back, I kind of think all the excitement and intrigue and discussion and over-the-top following of that story was worth it. With the benefit of a few months, and knowing what all has happened for the program both on the court and off, that one day really did turn out to be a turning point for IU. I never would have guessed; not because I thought it wasn’t a big day, just that the hype was so unbelievable, it got ridiculous. But now, I feel totally different. I just wondered if anyone else had looked back on it like that.

    Looks to me like it says Owen Valley.

    Sorry, I misunderstood your comment. Carry on.

    Delete if you like, Alex.

    Thanks for the note. I have an older brother that is about 6′ 3″. When we
    were kids he always seemed to be 8 inches taller than me. We had a Nerf Hoop
    and from the time I was 8 to 12 years old, he was 16,657 and 0 against me in
    that game.

    Watching this video of Cody reminded me of those days.

    What I find impressive about CZ is that he posts dominating numbers against cupcakes as well as good competition. In other words, he doesn’t take the night off against a team like Owen Valley, but he seems to rise to the occasion against quality teams as well.

    I am absolutely giddy about him coming in the fall!!!

  • MillaRed

    I think most of us think it was the biggest signing in 10 years under the circumstances. So, yes.

    So I see Coach Knight fails to mention the word “Indiana” on ESPN when breaking down some film on Sullinger.

    Ya know Coach, can we um………move on? No one really cares any more. I am wondering if you think people still care about that situation. Because I really don’t think they do. Thanks for the memories, but, MOVE ON.

    I remember playing against Owen Valley in High School. They were basically right on par with my terrible team that I won’t mention but needless to say playing agains the likes of Cody Zeller just isn’t fair. 20-0 start sounds about right. I would think it could have been 80-5 if they wanted to put a hurt on them.

  • millzy32

    Milla,

    Knight will be bitter til the very end. It’s just how he is. Loved him as a coach and as a developer of young men but I personally probably coudn’t have played for him even if I had the talent which I didn’t.

  • MillaRed

    I would have lasted about 10 minutes in that locker room because i have a
    mind of my own.

    I’m still excited

    takes me out walking when I’d rather stay at home; takes me out to parties when i’d rather be at home; my mind has mind of its own

  • MillaRed

    I would rather be partying actually. And it’s usually a mutual decision.

    I will be in Bloomington for the Northwestern game. If any of you are
    downtown and see a drunk white guy with a Wisconsin accent please buy me a
    beer. No seriously, buy me a beer.

  • superhoops

    They missed the 3 second call on Cody early in the video.

    My favorite was that when they started the “boiler up” cheer, there were several kids standing with the student section in IU stuff that looked mad and refused to say that.

  • Anonymous

    Not just doubled up, but had Cody wanted to push the issue, he could have outscored their entire team by himself.

  • Aceman_Mujezinovic_07

    Observations:

    1) I think he could have put up those numbers playing in the backyard because those kids were absolutely no match!
    2) I do love that you can throw a lob to him. That will be a welcome change.
    3) It’s absolutely hilarious that the opposing students are chanting at Cody while he’s hanging 27 on them in a 33 point blowout. Shows how smart teenagers are these days.
    4) I see a good thing in him and that’s room to grow and put on weight in his shoulders and upper body.

    Can’t wait til next year!

    Go Hoosiers – IU gets win number 4 at Michigan today!

    I can identify with Knight as I’m about as stubborn as he is (seriously). Trying to explain the logic would make this too long a post, but I don’t think he has against most of the fans. He did conduct his roast here, for example.

    But the state shares a name with the university, so of course he can’t say it.

  • Anonymous

    Here’s the problem, though. None of the major players that were in power at IU when he was fired are at the university anymore. When he takes the stance that he has lately, it comes across as a slight towards the fans. Look, I was as big an Coach Knight fan as there was, but it is starting to wane.

    I’m not saying it’s logical, but grudges never are
