  1. Here are the 3-on-3 groupings for Thursday’s game. Hopefully we’ll pick up a few more participants this week. The rules are you choose 3 players, as directed in the groupings, that you think will have the highest combined statistical impact. The groups may change from game to game.

    points (1), assists (2), def rebounds (1), off rebs (2), blocks (1), steals (1), TOs (-1)

    Group 1 (choose 1) – Yogi, RJ, JBJ

    Group 2 (choose 1) – HMP, Zeisloft, Troy

    Group 3 (choose 1) – Stan, Hartman, Max

    Good Luck!

  2. JBJ, Troy, and Hoetzel

    NEW AND IMPROVED.HARVARD CONTEST !!! Who has the most statistical impact?
    Pick one name from each grouping:

    Group 1: Those players that Geoff refers to by first name(Yogi, Troy, Stan, Max).
    Group 2: Those players that Geoff refers to by initials(RJ, JBJ, HMP).
    Group 3: Those players that Geoff refers to by last name(Zeisloft, Hartman).

  3. I want to start a pool of the Scoop commenters & Live Chatters who have the biggest meltdowns after IU football games.

    Results measured in Richter Scale readings.

  4. Not sure about the meltdown winner, ..I do have elusive footage of Tsao rallying all Wilson supporters for a response to the football terrorists.

  5. Nope…I originally wanted to type “exclusive” video in post #5…I made a typing error(my poor vision caused me to click on the wrong answer in spell check and I selected “elusive” instead of “exclusive”). Then again, if the video is puzzling to some, couldn’t it be rather elusive or imperceptible concept? Illusive would mean unreal or imaginary…I’m pretty sure that I didn’t imagine the YouTube clip.

    Nonetheless, my intention was to go with exclusive video….(as if it were solely special to my knowledge and now I’m deciding to share it with the Scoop audience).

  6. Not sure what that means…Then again, I’m grateful you straightened me out on basic math and percentage computations…which I also discharged in the outer limits of your mind..

  7. How many less would you like as to not tip the balance of your comforts with your desired orientations?

  8. Couldn’t find a bevy of midgets…But if you have a fetish for that sort of thing, I did find one very hot midget with her top off.
