  1. DD, You’ve been a busy boy with traveling and all to provide some really fine coverage of IU hardball. You did mention some days ago you would be posting Coach Wilson’s Tailgate Tour remarks made at Indy after posting Coach Crean’s. With today being the 1st day of FB camps held at IU maybe the 2 pieces would fit together harmoniously. But in the same breath I wouldn’t blame you if you are still Florida for R&R. Beaches, sun, water, women and Heineken are hard to turn your back on.

  2. Hehe. Good one Clarion. I spent all day yesterday coming back and even while I was there getting to the beach from Tallahassee required hours I didn’t have. But thanks for reminding me about that, as I’ve been pretty much been writing something else constantly since then and I did mean to post that transcript. I have some time today before baseball availability and maybe I can get that accomplished.

  3. 70 miles to Panama City Beach from my home in Dothan. Beach, Warm Weather, the ladies :). It’s good.

  4. Ben. I think that 70 miles is the longest 70 miles I’ve ever driven. Been yrs, but there was nothing to see on the way. And Dothan, so much traffic. Re – ladies, be very hard to beat South Beach.

  5. How well I know the drive through Dothan. Cross the railroad tracks, take a right, then a left at the light and head north to I-65.

  6. Right on Chet. Ron, your right. It is a very boring drive, and we have bad traffic. Our leaders have bickered about a bypass since I came here in 2006. From what I hear, they bickered long before I was here. They thinking addi g lanes will work, but that’s just a bandaid.

  7. Thanks Millport. I many times fail to use the resources at the IU website enough. Coach Wilson positively demonstrates why he gets it. He does not shy from challenging the fan base to get it. Which I agree with him is a weak link. I think he gets the job done through smart hard work and his persuasive communication. I drink IU Kool-Aid with every meal and on every break but I am more positive about this FB season than of any over six decades. In 2 more seasons Wilson will be making double the $ he is today.
