  1. Did you guys watch the Kevin Wilson show earlier today? He openly approached the topic of “bowl eligibility” for IU this season and all I can say is that I was very very impressed! Coach Kevin Wilson is a man of his word. And next season, folks, better be ready: “Win Two” Day is coming! I love Coach Kevin Wilson! He’s the best!

  2. Dustin – while your answer that 2013 class is currently full is technically correct, it is subject to how we get to 13 next year. We currently are at 15 for next year including Roth..subtract him and we are at 14. So unless we get to 13 next year with a senior (Elston, Watford, Hulls) or Creek does not come back…the player that leaves would create an opening.

  3. general tsao’s CCC-

    Can we get together around 2:15 at the Sizzler tomorrow? On Fridays they have the most delicious(possibly the best) all-you-can-swallow herring in cream sauce..I have no exterminator calls scheduled on Friday afternoon(other than a kitchen mouse problem at a nursing home on the east side) and it would be a wonderful chance to share stories our exemplary and successful lives. I would have suggested breakfast at the Waffle House, but my lovely wife has been promised a trip to French Lick and a tour of Larry Bird’s childhood home. Just drop me a message on this thread. If you don’t drop me a note here, I shall assume the fizzle on the Sizzler at this moment. You have my phone number and e-mail address…but no need to bother with those tedious methods of communication. Just type me a note here on Scoop and I’ll send a reply on a pigeon’s back to your mother’s house for confirmation any last minute changes that could throw wrench into these arrangements. Please quit avoiding me. I am a normal guy and herring and cream sauce awaits us! Be there or be wherever you are. God bless and talk to you superficially again soon.

  4. Why was my previous post deleted? Probably envy…

    Anyway I am just writing to cancel all my previous engagements for tomorrow with whoever may be reading this as tomorrow I go cycling with none other than Tom Crean!

    Everyone is invited provided you can keep up with him.

  5. Ya know…

    When you first started posting I thought you were angry but you were sincere. I was willing to listen. I thought that you had something that you wanted to contribute but you weren’t sure that people would listen. So…we all sat back and gave you a platform.

    …and this is it? This is what you had on your mind that you wanted people to hear?

    I don’t know about everyone else but I’m ready to admit I was wrong.

  6. Sorry I disappointed you, Chet. I’m really not after any “platform” on Scoop. Is there room to add much when Scoop has a blogger that has tried to monopolize, cover every angle to every story, the world of opinion on here? You throw in your one-liner zingers and amuse the few regulars of this place. You fit in because you want to fit in. I think you are far more afraid than I to really state what you feel. You don’t know me and I doubt you would ever try. I pulled a tiny bit of those feelings you keep careful control over when I first started posting. I guess that’s why you now feel a bit betrayed. I like your perspectives when you get a chance to voice them and open up. I couldn’t agree more with how you felt about the Penn State ugliness. I found it sad that your opinion, very eloquently forwarded, had to again be outdone by the one and only. And for what it’s worth, post #6 is not mine. It’s someone else using my name that was defending my satirical look at some of the ridiculous level of self-infatuation from some that believe we are all so perversely addicted to their monstrous egos that we find pleasure being audience members, voyeurs peering into events of the mundane by any standard a humble eye, to the setting of a lunch appointment. If you don’t see the ridiculousness of it all, then keep living the dream. I just can’t believe you don’t get the aura of this place..It’s not a blog about Hoosier sports anymore. It is no less a mockery of itself than any of my poor attempts at satire. If I could give you an image conjured up in my mind what best sums up Scoop, it would probably be on the order of this.

  7. That’s not a bad post but it’s not about IU sports, either. I look at this blog a a motorcycle specific blog. Regulars on both tend to interact with a certain level of familiarity. The moto blog MUCH more so. Every grandkid or child’s graduation gets announced. I don’t really understand why you feel such contempt for that. I was kinda interested in your postings initially but they seem to have devolved into a series personal attacks for reasons that I just don’t get. Some people may get a little wordy but isn’t that the whole point. Like many, if it’s really long, my short attention spell can’t handle it and I just hit the high points.
    I actually like the personal stories and, God knows, I’m as guilty as the next person for posting them.
    I don’t live a life in any kind of splendor. I get up and go to work with little kids. Some days are harder than others and the pay ain’t great but it’s where I want to be. I drive an old car but I’m not a car guy. I live in a pretty simple place but it’s all I need. Like most people I have a couple toys. Why the anger about other people’s lives? I don’t begrudge you anything an I hope your lot in life tends upward.
    Happiness is not a ‘zero sum’ game. Just because one person is happy does not mean another must be grim.
    Suit yourself and post whatever strikes you. It’s just a blog and it doesn’t matter what people think of you. Just how you feel about yourself.

  8. As far as feelings. I save those for flesh and blood people I can touch. I quit getting angry about blog postings a long time ago.

  9. Chet, Harvard, Mass…whoever else- Chet, good posts, I agree completely and little to add to your statement. Harvard, in case it matters, your name came up today when Davis and I had that lunch. We both agreed we sought to have you be a part of our ‘end zone seat gang’, but it seems you are not interested.

    Re the lunch…love at first sight. Davis…xxooxx.

    (ps….please someone pay attention to the spam…it’s really getting out of hand and not just a little).

  10. We both agreed we sought to have you be a part of our ‘end zone seat gang’, but it seems you are not interested.

    I would rather be buried alive in a JPat pancake mountain of built to the heavens for slanderous regrets the calling of a coach an idiot..or, maybe just play a game of hopscotch with Kelvin Sampson out front of Assembly Hall 15 minutes before tip-off our next home game…It’s kinda 50/50…Don’t get me wrong, you’re a nice guy and all…And when it comes to end zone seats and sitting with a favored inquisitor at a Spanish football inquisitions, you rock…I just prefer pancakes and hanging with Bloomington criminals. That davis dude? He just scares me.

  11. Davis???….you got him wrong…he’s a sweetheart! (Don’t mess with Davis, you’re messing with me).

  12. Don’t mess with Davis, you’re messing with me

    That would make sense…seeing how he probably is the alter ego of you…It’s the Patty Duke show on Scoop! Yippee!

  13. I’m not sure exactly why but this weblog is loading very slow for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a issue on my end? I’ll check back later and see if the problem still exists.

  14. I wanted to put you the very small word to be able to say thanks again for these superb advice you’ve discussed above. It has been so strangely generous of people like you to present without restraint all that a number of us might have distributed for an ebook in making some profit on their own, notably now that you might well have tried it in the event you decided. These techniques as well worked to be a fantastic way to realize that other people online have a similar dream just as my own to understand significantly more in terms of this condition. I know there are a lot more fun sessions ahead for people who view your website.

  15. Thanks a bunch for sharing this with all of us you really understand what you’re talking approximately! Bookmarked. Kindly also seek advice from my site =). We will have a hyperlink trade contract between us!
