    1..Coach of the year (noted in one of the links above) has Miami coach leading. No problem, but, Crean is not listed in the remaining 11-12 candidates. Yet Duke’s Krzyzewski is listed? Kind of goes hand in hand with the Big 10 player of the week thing that CTC is talking about? Maybe if IU wins the national champioship CTC will at least get on the list.

    2..Somewhere this morning read “why are the IU fans not burning up Twitter with Vic POY talk?” I need to get one of those twitter things.

    3..3-D printers. Reading that some group is using a 3-D printer to grow an replacement ear. Well, than we may not be too far away from growing another Victor Oladipo? Guess we need some DNA. May take a couple of years.

    4..Was going to say something about Cody not complaining about “the hit” because maybe he’s impressed with the swelling, but probably better to just leave that alone.

    5..If IU wins 2 of the 3 next games and ends up as the regular season Big Ten leader, does the Big 10 tourney become irrelevant?

    6..With the parking stickers, UCLA – boyfriend talking on the plane and the on-going Miami fiasco; has the NCAA turned into a poor joke? How would they respond to an artifically engineered Vic?

    7..I would like to see TV coverage with “extra coverage”
    Somewhat like the NASCAR coverage of the Daytona with camera coverage of the pre-game coach instructions, coverage of the sidelines and time-outs, in-game adjustments and post game interview with the refs. I watch each IU game 4-5 times and would love to have some of the above to post game review.

    8..This posting may make you wish you had a “delete” button

    So my step-father just offered me 2 lower tier tickets to the Regionals at Lucas Oil… Free…. They will be on a cruise and can’t go…

    And I can’t accept them because my wife will be 7.5 months pregnant and I can’t leave town for 4 or 5 days.

    I think I’m going to cry.

    Jeremy-

    Nice song choice. Fires in East Lansing and the ongoing debate surrounding the Nix smack to Cody’s stones…?

    I’m sure you must have considered this tune.

    Oh Geoff, the sacrifices we make for our families! But look on the bright side. Some day, you can use this story to make a point about sacrifice and discipline with your teenage son/daughter.

    Yes, yes, a fine selection indeed, although I was attempting to take the high road, so to speak.

    I was sorta amazed by the choice for the commercial break immediately following Doug Gottlieb’s interview with Cody.

Can the Hoosiers make a bowl game without Nate Sudfeld?
