    I mean...I guess, but still, it's unlikely he falls out of the lottery at the very least even when the college season plays itself out.
    Oh I know, the kid is A special talent. He's def gonna go top ten if he tries to get drafted in 14. But if he's one of those kids that wants to be the number one pick or top 3 then I could see him playing college for one year and then going to the draft in 15. Maybe he wants to experience being in college and playing div one basketball.

    It was just my opinion, but I love that kids game. If it means anything the guy I compare him to work ethic and leadership wise is Marcus Smart(their games are different but in terms of leading and running their teams both are fantastic) and he did the unthinkable last year came back for his sophomore year when he was a lock top 5 pick again the exception to the rule.


    If he played college ball he would probably average 10 FTs a game. If I was advising him for a college I would tell him go to FL and play for Billy Donovan, I swear he would be unstoppable in the spread pick in role. He is so advanced and knows how to make plays out of the PnR it would be lethal. But really he is just about a perfect fit for any team in the nation.

    His main area of work will be just getting stronger really. I think that for what he needs the NBA is the best place for him to get better.


    Also scouts can go over seas and watch him during the season. It isn't like he will disappear off the face of the earth, his evaluation period will be there for NBA scouts(even though he has already been on scouts minds for over 2 years, I bet he or Dario Saric are the two most watched guys along with a few other euros's ). Exum will be in front of NBA scouts plenty. College season won't change how he is looked at. it will just change how the college guys are looked at. You see it every year guys getting drafted super high without college, college is not the end all be all. In fact playing versus grown men may be better in many many ways than playing in college.

    I really don't see Exum playing a second in college money talks.
    I think he'll be in the draft next spring, but my understanding is that he could enroll in college in December and play the second semester with a team.

    What's a semester in college to a guy who might be drafted top 5 in June?

    Honestly, I have no idea what will happen other than he'll be in the draft next June IMO. Exum's a weird case.

    Back to football, according to my NCAA Football dynasty, IU will lose the national championship to USF next year. Just in case you were all wondering. Can breathe now.

    (I'm so cheap once I figure out game exploits. If you have any TE with speed over 80 in that game, like Bolser has, you can just ruthlessly exploit linebackers down the seam for 5-6 catches until the safety really starts drifting that way...in which case, if you then have a flanker with speed like Wynn, you can just have him run eternal go routes and hit him once he beats his corner. Only flaw in the plan is IU's terrible pass-blocking -- at least in that game, I just download the OperationSports roster and don't modify from there. Only counter to this, really, is if CPU goes Cover-6, but I always wheel my HB out on hot route anyway, and sent slot receiver either on hook or out route and cross him with other WR on a slant or in, so if CPU drops back enough men to defend both TE & WR there, RB or other WR is always wide open.)

    IU made the final five for Goodluck Okonoboh and the final three for Lourawls Nain.

    We'll know in a couple of months how IU's 2014 class will turn out.

    Goodluck would be a huge score. Hopefully we get Robert Johnson/Blackmon Jr, Goodluck, and Whitehead.

    Lots of visitors in Bloomington this weekend. Keep hearing it wouldn't be a big surprise if Robert Johnson committed on his visit. Interestingly enough, James Blackmon Jr. will be on campus Saturday.

    Blackmon is just trying to save face. He'll go to Kentucky.

    As cdash mentioned, there are a lot of players visiting IU this weekend.

    Malachi Richardson (a top 2015 prospect) and Isaiah Whitehead (a top 2014 prospect) are two of the higher profile visitors along with a bunch of underclassmen recruits.

    The only reason Peter Jurkin still has a scholarship...

    FWIW, LouRawls Nairn is my favorite name of that bunch. Rolls off the tongue.

    As a bball season ticket holder, let me just say that I want my money back for our home out of conference schedule this year. What a joke.

    Other than being due for a road game in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge, is it really any different than a year ago?

    No, but that doesn't make it any better.

    Is Crean ever going to have the guts to schedule some tougher non-conference games? We play Louisville next year, right?

    Gotta keep the minions happy with the 12-1 start and a high ranking. The more Cupcake Universities he can schedule - the better.

    Look, I honestly wouldn't have as big an issue if the whole stance from the school on the UK game was wanting to provide the "Assembly Hall atmosphere" to students. Rings pretty hollow right now, especially since the Lville game is going to be in NYC.

    Yup, I've been saying this from the moment it happened.

    What's better, a Kentucky game in the largest city and alumni base of Indiana, or no Kentucky game at all? People acted as if moving the Kentucky game to Indy was moving it to Mars.

    But hey, Crean sure told Cal to stick it! I felt as though that was more important to some people than the real game.

    Cal may be an a-hole to deal with, but Crean still has responsibility for losing the Kentucky game. That's an awful thing for an IU coach to be remembered for. The IU-UK game was an institution.

    I was honestly fine with our stance at the time because I thought we would replace the game with Louisville or Kansas home and home. And now it appears it really was just a pissing contest between two huge egos.

    And Pitino and Crean have gotten together to try and stick it to Cal...just stupidity all around, but that seems to be the norm in college sports these days.

    Fun guessing game on which helmets we will wear each week. This week we tell the Sycamores to go **** themselves and put the state flag logo on the side of our helmet.

    Roberson gets the nod at QB, looks good with an 18 yard field to work with. Last year Shakir Bell shredded our defense. Let's see if we can keep him in check tonight.

    It's been our logo forever, and good job defensively thus far. And that's just a crap call.
