    Yogi has played some fine basketball of late. It’s a shame that so many that sold their desire for banners didn’t want them with the same level of heart and hunger demonstrated by Yogi.

    “Everything hinges” seems like a long time ago….Some left IU after their “Going Home” parties coincided with a Syracuse bitch-slapping.. It’s a rare individual that will stay to chase banners when probable high draft pick status is awaiting.
    Tragedy found the doorstep of Devin Davis….Devin was probably my favorite Hoosier out of “The Movement” group. With that young man having his dreams blow up in his face, I’m not sure if it’s very classy for any journalist or family member to act like “one” Hoosier from that group stands above all others when it comes to defining such things that don’t really matter anymore.

    Without Austin Etherington’s tireless behind-the-scenes efforts to convince Cody to wear candy stripes, there is no “Movement.” Loved Etherington’s enthusiasm when he would go nuts from the Hoosier sideline during our huge ‘Back-to-Back’ years ….The harsh reality is that even when he was healthy, Austin couldn’t get minutes at Valparaiso. ….But his efforts to bring Cody to Bloomington saved Tom Crean’s ass.
    Now we are left with watching Crean take yearly ‘movements’ during every March Madness. Circle of Life, I guess.

  2. I did not know until a few minutes ago that Peyton Manning was born with a cleft palate. He has several surgeries throughout his childhood to repair the velopharyngeal incompetence (lack of a seal between oro- and nasopharynxl areas) and he wore braces for a decade to properly align his teeth. He has raised millions of dollars for children’s hospitals over the years. We are all the sum of our experiences. This experience obviously made Peyton a better human being.
