    Awesome. Great. Super.

  • Harvard for Hillbillies says:

    Have I mentioned lately how much I confer with Geoff on the great Hoosier basketball stories/insights that can be found by visiting ‘Inside the Hall?’

    Why did this news not appear on Scoop..? Gee, I wonder.

  • TsaoTsuG says:

    Harvard… I think you want to ‘concur’, I don’t generally see either you or Goofy as the ‘conferring’ types. (disclaimer: no cut down intended, just saying).

    Goofy, its the second week of November. Time for your annual “God picked me to be the greatest analysts of basketball- NBA or college- and things wooden floor who ever lived, gave me a keen insight into His mind when he planned the idea of basketball into Dr. Naimsmith’s brain cells and feed my ability to look, strategize and know more than anyone whoever lived …and I have no idea why but I am Blessed…and had it not been that way He would have made me either 7’3″ ballet dancer/point guard or a soccer genius coach as well” rant. Looking forward to it. (or just photo copy last year’s, barely anyone will know the difference).

  • Harvard for Hillbillies says:

    oops…You are correct. I certainly intended “concur.” Brain is toast.

    SI jinx Cody stay healthy

  • IUAlumChicago says:

    Does anyone know when this cover actually hits the newsstands? When can we purchase it? Starting on Monday? Thanks in advance.

  • Geoff says:

    Not sure. Didn’t know anyone but doctor’s offices still got SI. My ESPN the mag, with Cody on the cover, did get to me in the mail today – not regional…. MAINE!

    Tsao – I’m glad my impact on you has been so great. I’ll see what I can come up with, but that’s a pretty broad request. Usually I need a focal point to start my rant before proclaiming my infallibleness.

    I will give you this tidbit now Tsao… I am eagerly anticipating the announcement tonight that Maine join’s other states that have overcome bigotry and voted in marriage equality. That is absolutely and unequivocally the right thing to do, and I am proud to live in a state brave enough to stand up for the rights of it’s individual’s.

  • Dead Noodle says:

    If he wants to confer let him confer.

    Harvard you are being brainwashed.

  • Chet says:

    I like conifers.

    Geoff, I hope Maine does the right thing, as well.

    I was in Saskatchewan shortly after the Tar Hell state voted to add bigotry to the state constitution. As I was checking into a motel the clerk, who was a member of an ethnic minority, saw North Carolina on my registration card. Assuming that I, too, was a bigot he gave me a hearty thumbs up and said, “Hey, North Carolina. Good job stopping those gays from getting married.”

    I looked at him for a second and then informed him, “You know, those people who voted against gay people from marrying, if given the opportunity to vote on it, would ban YOU from marrying, too.”

  • Harvard for Hillbillies says:

    Yeah, brainwashed….Kmart sucks. Three minutes ’til Wapner.

  • coachv says:

    geoff,

    i think the maine edition would definitely by regional. btw, “infallibleness” is not a word.

  • Geoff says:

    It is now Coachv…

    I hope we get more “regional” IU coverage up here then… I won’t hold my breath.

  • Podunker says:

    The candy-stripe pants are cool again, and this will make them even cooler. Glad they never got changed. Great tradition.
