I love all the “unrealistic expectations” talk about Cody.

When he was getting all the pre-season awards and people said, “Baloney. He’s not the best player in America”, those people were told, “You’re a moron who knows nothing about basketball. He’s the best player to suit up at Indiana in a generation and the best big man in college in 10 years and a LOCK to be the # 1 pick in the draft.”

Of course, when it’s proven that THEY were wrong, they blast the people who WERE right with, “You’re an idiot who had too high expectations for the kid.”

Comedy writers couldn’t dream that crap up…….

What is your constant need for affirmation? Did you mother not show you enough love as a child? Did daddy not pat you on the fanny after your first war protest? Is it not good enough to just comment on the issues here in the present without your need to be the GOD of the IU blog.

Dude you are messed up!

BTW I just checked the current team stats and CZ leads the team in 13 of the 22 listed. Not to mention the 1.8 t/o per which is 3rd best and forth best in fouls per at 2.1.
But hey that isn’t good enough.

Before you post your next rant about how I am kissing his behind, please back up your rants with some stats…just once back up your mouth with some solid numbers!!!

Tell Debbie hi!!!

Here is a thought. How about we just enjoy the season, respect our players, and quit bitching if someone isn’t producing. Posting and complaint is fine to a point, but after awhile pick yourself up, and move on.

“My” constant need for affirmation?

Bwahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!

Ummmmmmmmm, it’s YOU guys who whine 24/7 about “No one respects you on here.”

Unlike you losers, I don;t give a crap is some anonymous board people “respect” me or not.

GOD of the blog?

Huh?

Dude, quit sniffing nail polish.

How about you just not read my posts if you don’t like them?

Again, you clowns NEVER follow your own advice to me.

btw…..nice duck on what I said.

if numbers aren’t important to cody, only winning is, then i don’t intend to get upset with the numbers. i played basketball as many of you did and i cared more about the team winning than my individual accomplishments. i gre up in indiana playing ball outside at the school court from age of 6 up. i didn’t think anything else in the world existed until i came to this blog and saw more LARGE words than ever before. i’m still simple and still love winning more than individual figures. ya’all have a safe week boys….
