Zeller best prospect returning to school

Jeff Goodman and Gary Parrish of collaborated to write a piece analyzing the fallout of the decisions of underclassmen to leave early for the NBA and to stay. Goodman and Parrish both said that Indiana freshman forward Cody Zeller is the best pro prospect who decided to return to school and that Indiana was the team most aided by their underclassmen’s decision to stay.

Goodman also made me angry at myself for never using the word “enigmatic” to describe Christian Watford, because that one’s just obvious.

    Chet, part of the regular team of blogging racist on Scoop, recently used “enigma” to describe Mo Creek. I actually think he thought it was the ugly word.

    Tuesday, April 10, 2012 – 11:01 PM EDT

    Such an enigma, isn’t he? I don’t recall anything of the likes of the Mo situation. All world…then boom. Coming back, but still looking like a guy coming back and then…boom.

    He could be all Big Ten…or he could be a shadow of himself.

    Who knows?

    I respect the heck out of everyone connected to the situation. I can’t imagine it being handled any better.

  • Chet says:

    Enigmas are a mystery to me.

    How do you keep track of old posts? I can’t find stuff that was posted yesterday.

  • Harvard for Hillbillies says:

    Would you believe I just have a very good memory?

    I have a story of faith…

    Faith is never in words.
    No symbols required or audience an ear when its most potent force its unheard voice strongest and clear. Faith resides in deeds.
    It flows like river from no mountain I’ve seen.
    Faith doesn’t make a home inside you when it decides to shake you from this dream.
    Faith projects. It moves through you.
    It moves through others.
    I witnessed a glimpse so pure it gave me no answers yet moved me, somehow, out the shadows of doubt.
    I wasn’t searching for it when the river found my bed and
    flushed its way out through my bones and passed through blood that feeds my chest.
    Just a taste. Teased me with its everlasting.
    Vanished in a moment as it moved through the stone walls effortlessly penetrating my bitter heart.
    So short and so precise it was delivered to my empty vessel. Unexpected. Uninvited. Unaware. Unseen.
    I did not call for it upon this day. There was no thirst this desert.
    I did not call from knees as it splashed its rains upon my face. It made me its river in the most unexpected place.
    Rivers where none should flow. Tears where none should grow. It gave me this moment to put on its show.
    It woke me while sitting in health a perfectly lifeless chair.
    I was not asleep.
    There is a hope beyond the eyes, this restless place, I felt its waters move to keep.

  • Boomer says:

    Indeed, so true, Harvard. Faith resides in deeds.

  • Hoosier Clarion says:

    …HfH, BRAVO…

  • Geoff says:

    Ummm, did the entire article with the “racism” thread of comments get erased? How is Harvard going to copy and paste quotes?

  • Chet says:

    Best forgotten…

    Harvard, is that little ditty by your own hand? It’s quite wonderful.

  • Hoosier Clarion says:

    Morning Geoff, The article is alive and real but recently archived on page 2.

  • Geoff says:

    Interesting… I always go straight to the Men’s Basketball link and for some reason it isn’t in there.


  • Chet says:

    Hey, it’s not the poetry of the written word but yesterday was my 27th wedding anniversary. We spent the whole day riding our KLRs on forest service roads through the mountains. Her idea.

    I must have done something pretty good in a previous life.

  • RAM says:

    Why such a penchant for small foreign bikes? Buy a Harley.

  • Ron (in Fl - but now in Indy) says:

    Chet – just spent a week riding in NC. What a great place you live in.

    Ram – V-Star. Everybody has a harley anymore.

    Gas station in Georgia month ago ran into a neighbor of CZ in Washington. His grandson on team with CZ as senior and was proud to have scored the last 3 points in the state championship game.

    Anyone going to the IU awards thing’ie on Thursday? Be nice to see these guys up close.

  • Chet says:

    I have the KLR and a Triumph. I wanted a motorcycle, not an invitation to a costume party. I’ve owned all kinds of bikes including a Harley. Once. It’s about the riding to me, not the wardrobe.

    Ron, glad you had a great time. It seems like everyone in Florida vacations here.

  • RAM says:

    Wardrobe? I recently did the Spring Thaw in Tennessee.Sold plenty of Harley and Indian memorabilia. No one asked me for any Kawasaki stuff. I wouldn’t call what the Outlaws were wearing “costumes”. You can if you want Chet.

  • Lewis says:

    Silly me thought this was a basketball blog…..can you lovebirds take your discussion to your emails and leave this blog for discussion regarding the articles please?

  • TsaoTsuG says:

    Lewis!!!…basketball was over 3-4 weeks ago. In the off-season we bloggers here focus on motorcycles, poetry, cooking techniques….come back after October 15, we’d love to hear from you.

    Now, for that yummy paella recipe….do we liquify the saffron or just drop it in powder form?

  • Laffy says:

    No kidding, Lewis.

    The bedwetters keep crying how “I” ruin this place when they’ve done nothing but turn it into a place where they swap stories about their knitting and quilting.

    And TT, Peegs sure does have basketball talk before October. There is recruiting. AAU games. The fact we have an over-sign.

  • Chet says:

    RAM, that’s exactly my point. You’re selling t-shirts to sheep. Get in line. Let’s get 50 cloned motorcycles in a line and all ride to the same place wearing the same clothes.

    I’d rather walk.

    Haynes makes shop manuals. For the Honda VFR the have 8 editions. They have to because the motorcycle is continually improved.

    For the Harley they publish the same one edition that they put out in 1972.

    What kind of idiot would buy an obsolete bike like that? Obviously, lots of folks. It’s the most common bike on the road. It’s the baloney on white bread of motorcycles.


    Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone are Harley guys. Steve McQueen rode only Triumphs.

    South Park had it nailed.

  • Chet says:

    Why would someone ever consider a ridiculous identical outfits as costumes?

    As many of my friends are current or former SEALs I’m not too impressed with ‘Outlaws’. I used to pay one to cut my grass.

  • Chet says:

    TTG, have you ever made your own sushi? I saw some sockeye at the market that looked like the stuff I was eating in British Columbia last summer.

    Seems a waste to cook it.

    I’m thinking about giving it a try.

  • RAM says:

    CHET, don’t sell t-shirts. Sorry, but I could maybe find you a cute little Kawasaki jumpsuit for your Sunday rides.Buy American made products, Make your Seal friends proud. Somebody has to cut your grass ,can’t get those penny loafers dirty.

  • Chet says:

    Kawasaki makes most of their American market bikes in Lincoln, Nebraska. Harley outsources most of their parts to Korea and Taiwan. Look it up.

    I come from a military family. I doubt you would understand.

  • Chet says:

    When your costume wearing little ‘outlaws’ top seven figures in miles and four continents send their coupon books in and I’ll stamp them.

    Otherwise they should hold hands at the Rooster or Dew Drop Inn or whatever the wannabe bar is in your little hamlet while those of us that have ridden for 40 years (and actually have served) will look at them and a give a little laugh.

  • TsaoTsuG says:

    Chet…Alwats wanted to but still haven’t really gotten the hand of wrapping the rice, etc. You’re absolutely right about ‘wannabes”, besides I’d always wondered whether it is real leather or the fake plastic leather.

  • RAM says:

    Chet,Kawasaki is no more an American company than Honda or Toyota.Harley Davidson is.As for “My outlaws” (which they are not)most of the 1% ers I have had contact with ARE EX MILITARY. YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT.Some one who has ridden for 40 years would know that.Do you have your own parking space for your little “Kaw” there on campus?
