Hoosier Morning


1. HOOSIERS HQ
The Indiana football team may have gotten a win at Illinois, but the coaches were unimpressed with the level of play, Dustin writes.

One win and suddenly there’s a chance Indiana could reach the Big Ten title game, Andy writes.

The Curt Miller-led IU women’s basketball team took its first step in creating a new culture in Tuesday’s exhibition romp, I wrote.

2. IT’S INDIANA
One of Washington’s favorite sons, Cody Zeller, is Indiana’s Mr. Everything, Matt Crossman of The Sporting News writes.

The secret to a big senior season for Christian Watford is rebounding, Pete DiPrimio of the Fort Wayne News-Sentinel writes.

Jordan Hulls ranks as the No. 3 shooter in the nation, and Christian Watford is No. 42, Jeff Goodman of CBSsports.com writes.

3. BIG TEN COUNTRY
Indiana native Branden Dawson returned from last year’s knee injury to lead Michigan State in an exhibition victory over Rollie Massimino’s NAIA Northwood (Fla.) squad Tuesday, Diamond Leung of MLive.com writes.

Ohio State struggled to an exhibition win over D-II Walsh, an early warning for the Buckeyes, the Columbus Dispatch’s Bob Hunter writes.

4. ONE FOR THE ROAD
There’s still a chance for IU football, so here’s Abba with “Take A Chance On Me.”

    Let’s not forget Rico Chet predicted before Illinois IU FB finishes 7-5. We are at 3-5. Iowa can be put to sleep. Wiscy can be shocked like we almost shocked OSU. Penn State will be the coming of age. And we bring the Bucket back to B’town. Extremely plausible. Then in the postseason I hope we play some weaklings like Washington (if they make it).

    On a slightly unrelated note Harvard for Hillbillies is the best thing that ever happened to this blog. The NDNG (naturally drifted, naturally gifted) card is one of those things that doesn’t need any recognition to be awesome, yet you feel the need to acknowledge the beautiful moment of inspiration (and the work) that made it possible.

    I’m getting nervous that I haven’t awaken to a ,”Darius Latham committs to IU” post as yet. I hope Darius is planning on treating us, not tricking us. I know I know, signing day isn’t’till February, but what about this homegrown flip 5 fever? I want us strike while the iron’s hot!

    Downing/Harvard (Dowvard? Harving?), you are always will be the greatest, as posts 3,4,5,7 and 8 clearly demonstrate. The way you play with yourself on this blog makes Pee Wee Herman at the porno theater look like an amateur.

    Regarding post #7, it brought some genuine merriness to my evening. I am disappointed, however, that neither “The Entertainer” nor “DragHughla” are part of the collage. It is Halloween, isn’t it? What is Halloween without vampires and Liberace?

    Dustin. Question. It seems to me that when news is generated at ITH and you point us that direction, you have always identified the news source and noted ITH.

    But when I read ITH articles your professionalism is not returned…?

    Example on ITH coverage of the eligibilty issue they state something along the lines of “a reporter asked Crean about the time frame of approval”.

    Thar was you asking right? Maybe not an issue but the difference is apparent.

    I wouldn’t want my name mentioned at that zombie farm. Now they’re charging people for their premium coverage.

    Want to get rid of Harvard?..Turn this place into ITH. Once Dustin goes on to his bigger gig, the Pollyanna communists take over.

    They charge for premium here too, Mush for Brains. They just had an article where you had to be a subscriber to read it.

    So, buh-bye.

    Or were you lying about leaving just to get attention….again?

  • Harvard for Hillbillies #23


    Wednesday, October 31, 2012 - 7:10 PM EDT

    I guess you got me there, Laffy…What Dustin and Scoop provide as free access(ScoopTalk, Hoosier Morning, LiveChat, Andy’s new “Sage take..,” FREEDOM in visual political commentary)still beats the hell out of blogging with Pollyanna communists from Kent Benson’s zombie farm.

    I can’t imagine Laffy allowed to blog his usual vile, pus-infested, spew for one minute at ITH. Give it a try, you vulgar cuss whore.

    We’re all damn lucky to have this place. I don’t see anyone carrying the torch once Dustin moves on. It will be a sad day.

  • Laffy #24


    Wednesday, October 31, 2012 - 7:42 PM EDT

    Yeah, I knew you were lying about leaving.

    Now, give us another 30 paragraph whinefest that no one is going to read because your mom left you on a corner because she didn’t want you anymore.

    The only reason you say it will be “sad” is because the next person won’t allow you to vomit all over here 24/7 like Dustin does.
