  1. I don’t know whether anyone has given this much thought, busy as we have been with singing “Hossanahs” while listening to CTC’s strategy of give it to Cody.

    But the NCAA decision to remove any and all barriers to contacting recruits as often as time and speed dialing permit is not only wrong headed, it is as insulting towards Indiana University as a ‘loogy’ in the face.

    You see, the NCAA said that the rules that were used to rape, sodomize and otherwise abuse Indiana University for the last 5 or so years were just removed. Just like that. While we were still laying on the torture board and someone was warming up the wire coat hanger on the electric hot plate, the NCAA said “oops” and called it a ‘no basket’. No harm, no foul.

    No harm, no foul!!!????

    Someone even joked yesterday that the NCAA should write a letter of apology. It is no joke. They should. The NCAA should live the humiliation it put us through over the last five years. The damage that was done to several programs at Indiana University and IU’s reputation was horrific.

    A once nationally honored and admired basketball program exactly because it believes in following rules of decent intitutional behavior was reduced to playing with ‘walk-on’ volunteers fill ins as the basketball program was dismembered into naked submission in full blown view of millions of fans and media in a blood thirst.

    The pundits, as always, thriving in misery and muck hoot and hollered like degenerates as the torture sessions became agonizingly acute and their enjoyment and excitement throbbed as agony and painful screams of Hoosier loyals grew.

    The Board of the NCAA should not only make the drive from Indianapolis to Bloomington; it should walk out on the basketball court in front of the 17,000 or so fans, strip, publicly bow, apologize facing towards the five championship banners, be handed strips of barbed wire and allowed to walk off only under condition to never, not ever, ever seek to serve on another public interest, accountability or integrity board…not ever!

    Indiana fans should take up a collection to buy a plaque to go on the wall at the entrance of Assembly Hall. It should list the names of every individual who has served on the Board of the NCAA during the last decade and the institutions they represent.

    We were raped! We were violated! We were sodomized!….and then we are told to just sit back and enjoy it!

    I don’t know about you, but I was one of those who was adamant that we had to live within the rules and that coach Kelvin Sampson was some kind of a miscreant. And, I would listen to no reason or excuses… rules is rules. Now I am ashamed and embarrassed, and if possible I’d like to hit somebody in the mouth.

    After I apologize to Kelvin Sampson. If we were raped and sodomized, he got passed around.

  2. In the realm of what was going on at the time, and what still comes forth to our attention everyday in the world of seedy recruiting practices, anyone with an ounce of rational thought could tell it was a witch hunt from the start. It was rooted in an attempt to ruin our season. It was sabotage from the onset. The NCAA fully knew the hatred toward the IU AD and Sampson that would ensue fueled by strong emotions still tied to the Knight firing and a perception that we were a flawless program now tainted.

    We didn’t have to get so ugly. We didn’t have to paint every kid he recruited as despicable drug-taking thugs. Sampson broke the fingernail chewing rule and deserved some form of punishment for it. He was the fool for sidestepping something so easily walked in a straight line. That doesn’t excuse how we turned it into Salem of Bloomington. It’s over and it’s time to move on.

  3. Tsao,

    I 100% agree.

    But while I think Indiana was wrongfully taken to the woodshed, we have to remember Sampson was a repeat offender and a liar. Regardless of the rule, Sampson just said screw it and broke it anyway. Ultimately I think that’s what put him, and subsequently IU, in such hell.

    I’m over it and ready to move on. Hopefully this season helps me put a little more of that mess behind.

  4. H4H, Correct about the NCAA knowing because Brand was in charge. I think much vilifying was done wrongly to some of those players(I did)because K. Sanctions waived adios with 1 hand and tightly squeezed $750k with the other and became unavailable to spit and urinate on.

  5. Appreciating the time and effort you put into your site and in depth information you provide. It’s good to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same outdated rehashed material. Excellent read! I’ve saved your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to my Google account.

  6. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
