    Gilp's right, WMR's wrong. The money given to the kids is completely immaterial. All would have been considered above board had Adam's ex-wife not given $185 two years before the current players were born.

    Like Liggins getting his cell phone cut off when he committed to UK.

    That Adams guy is a true humanitarian.

    Again, it's a fun conspiracy for Mark Adams to put together a charity which brings kids over from Africa so they can get a basketball scholarship for 10 years before one goes to Indiana just so he can direct kids to go to IU and punish kids that go to Kentucky. All of it in the hopes that his undeserving kid could be hired for a low level coaching job for one year.
    It's just so crazy that it might work. Thank God we've got you on the case to make sure he couldn't possibly get away with it.

    I don't think your sarcasm gives Adams enough credit for thinking ahead. This is a 30 year plan, just wait until you see what happens for IU in years 20-25.

    Yeah that's true. The true mission wasn't to get his undeserving son a job, but rather to get his father's brother's nephew's cousin's former roommate's kid an internship.

    I'm starting to get sad that we don't play you guys this year... This really is such a fun "hate" rivalry...

    Wouldn't surprise me to see the NCAA try to match us up in March.

    Yes but what about the indisputable connection between Vonleah and the classic Von Lee theater in Bloomington. Notice how it all goes back to the film room for Crean. I fully anticipate the NCAA to investigate this.

    I think I might root against IU this year because of this.

    Really? You guys really did this? Come on man!

    I don't have a problem with it. Think it was mostly to give the outgoing seniors something for being there for the whole rebuild.

    Understandable that they gave it to seniors if that was the case.

    Don't worry. THe IU fanbase is every bit as crazy as UK for me to dislike the team that much.

    Impressions from the 1st game of the year I was actually able to attend live.

    Strong performance last night even if SHSU was the weakest opponent to date. Nice to see them just go out and throttle someone from the opening tip.

    Zeller was pretty decent but you could tell he was sick.

    Watford was great coming off the bench. Sheehey looked like he didn't want to give back the starting spot. Oladipo continued in a role where he might score 10 points every game without a single play being drawn up for him.

    Those three are the key in my mind. Zeller looks great, and will be great. Hulls and Farrell are excellent shooters who may struggle a little defensively. But if Watford, Sheehey, and Oladipo can consistently produce at a high level, there's not really a weakness to exploit.

    Now on to Brooklyn where they can finally get a real test Monday night- or maybe not as Georgia "advanced" to the semi-finals of this tournament by going 0-2. Must be goal differential or something.

    Bob Knight is doing the IU game tonight on ESPN. What do you IU fans think about that? Has he even been to an IU game since his departure?
