    he still needs a visit? jeez. he’s probably been on campus 30 times! just how much “love” does he need? if you grow up in Indiana and don’t love IU, we don’t need you. just wish he’d get it over with and pick Kentucky like his old man and quit stringing crean and Indiana fans along.

    These types of comments not only scare away current recruits, but they scare away athletes that haven’t even thought about where they would like to go.
