  • SPORTS MOMENT: Indiana game 2011.
    First game with my Dad since 1993. Hit the Skull Session, had decent seats, GREAT weather, Braxton set a school record, Bucks pulled out a victory, and to top it off after the game we got our picture taken with Gordon Gee and Gene Smith.
    I'll remember that day the rest of my life. That is what it's all about folks.

Can't wait! Nothing else like it. I haven't been lucky enough to attend but my dad and his best friend went in 2004 on Wednesday for the practice round and par 3 challenge. It's been ten years and he hasn't stopped talking about it. Would love to make it someday.

Yes. Loved that show.

Imho there is no other answer but ND here. So the hell what if Duke or Kentucky get another title. They're expected too. It's their place in the pantheon of sports. But my god, the insufferable ND fans would come out of the woodwork in scores if the unthinkable happens. For me it's kinda like the patriots and Yankees. Yay for you. You won your 500th championship. Yawn. A ND win would be nauseating at best. Yuck.

Exactly. See: Ross, L. I really fear Loving going down that road. I don't think he will but it seems he is flirting with it.

First I feel special to get a reply from The Andy Vance. As usual an eloquent well articulated response. Excellent point about Urban and his pedigree as well as his assistant's. You're absolutely right about where the blame was placed when the football bucks misfired. I suppose your argument for the general anonymity of the bball staff to the average fan is accurate, sadly. However that doesn't mean the average fan shouldn't hold both staffs to the same level of accountability. I guess that might be the difference between the two programs in a nutshell. I agree completely that it's on Thad just like it is with Urban to instill a culture and align his coaches and players with that culture. I think he does a good job of that. Not as good as Urban but still good. One knock against matta I think, in true tresselian style he is far too loyal to his Seniors. (but that's a topic for another thread) where Meyer isn't shy about sitting a guy for a more talented youngster. Maybe that's another nutshell. I think my overall point is popularity with the average fan not withstanding what's good for the football goose must be good for the basketball gander.

Thad, I think, would be first in line to tell anyone he has room for improvement. So why state the obvious? I think it's interesting how everyone gushes about how awesome our Football asst coaches are and are so quick to (rightfully) heap praise on them or hang them out to dry (Fick) but at the same time criticize Thad as if he's on an island when the team struggles. It should be the same standard good or bad for both football and basketball coaching staffs. If not we will never be a true dual sport school like we aspire to be. So yes, Thad has had a great run but it hasn't been all him, just like the past two mediocre (we're spoiled btw all things considered) seasons aren't all on him. I'm not out to start a civil war on here between Thad lovers or Thad critiques, I just think a fair view of him involves a touch of both.

One of my best friends had a '68 Cutlass S. Great memories of cruising in that.

'92 Pontiac Grand-Am. In one of the safest decisions of my life, I buried the speedo on 334 in springfield and snapped a pic with a disposable Kodak camera. Four door, maroon, 6cyl, non-functional overdrive.
