    It's silly season for 98.86% of the teams.

    Minnesota's winning the B1G regular season and tourney, you heard it here first. Laughing

    Now that I got that out of the way, everyone can now proceed.

    Rumors of people leaving/ staying?

    MSU: an insider of ours just came out saying he thinks JJJ is staying. I give it a 99% he’s gone.

    Ward has hired sone personal trainer in EL for like a year. Good sign for him coming back. No one else

    Former IU player Daryl Thomas passed away from a heart attack today. He was a key member on the 1987 title team.Sad, sad news.

    He was 52.

    For which class?

    We just ended ‘18 with pg Tai Strickland, son of Rod. I’m guessing we’ll kick tires on a grad transfer big and nothing will come of it.

    ‘19 targets are Days, Carton, and Nnaji currently.

    Ward is a beast, at times. Getting into better shape will help him immensely.

    Off season question I want to know the answer to is whether or not the Hoosiers are getting Langford. He would be a huge upgrade for us.

    I honestly have no clue. I thought it was super interesting to see the McDonald's players' predictions on where Romeo is heading. They were all over the board between the three finalists. Lol. Can't wait until it's over.

    Agree here. Think Purdue will be around 6 or 7.

    Not sure why we can't stop the announcements and just assume every sophomore and junior are declaring and going to go get information. You are allowed to do it up to three times now, so there is zero reason not to.

    Pretty tough to argue against this. Gonna be tough again next year.

    Side note.....I think we have our answer back to our old argument from years ago, Beilein or Crean, if you didn't think we did already. You're right. I was totally wrong. Good on you Hail! Lol. Is it bad I'm ready for Beilein to retire???

    aww man, that sucks. I remember him. I was a huge fan of that 87 team. Still remember where I was for all the big games.

    Favorite quote from that year...when they asked Bob KNight if he was worried when there were down big late to LSU and he said, "I looked down at the other end of the court and saw Dale Brown coaching and knew we had a chance."

    Funny because it's true.

    RIP Daryl, I'll always remember you as a grinder power forward on my all time favorite team.

    Deleware Transfer Ryan Daly; he's got to sit a year, so not immediate help. Gets two years,tho.
    Just read Bob Morris lost a 17/5 sophomore guard..
    Miles Reynolds is from the Midwest.. eligible immediately.
    Someone once told me Brady Ellingson was a stud..

    Who are you hearing?

    Man, I'm pretty sure Crean left Indiana with a winning record vs Beilein. You'll always have that over me.

    Yeah, I'm sure MSU basketball doesn't have top of the line athletics training. :confused:

    However, you see it in football and basketball all the time during the off season. How many kids train not with their schools during the off season when practice isnt going on? A lot of them.

    He'll get feedback and come back. Think he's around a mid to late 2nd round pick.

    There just isn't a lot of demand for 6'8 guys that play under the rim in the NBA right now.

    Not a whole lot, but someone on the homeboard did say one of our assistants started following Reynolds on twitter. How he came by that nugget, I don't know, but I haven't heard anything official about the Reynolds interest.

    Brady Ellingson is an interesting prospect.....:D

    Purdue just got a solid grad transfer for the next two years. Immediate eligibility.

    Nice. Reminds me a lot of Brian Cardinal. Hopefully he has a comparable impact.

    Yep. Was a head scratcher when he picked Xavier first since he seemed like a perfect fit for us. Glad it worked out though.

    nice pickup for Purdue. We badly needed a solution at the 4.

    Will be interesting to see if he slides to the 5 at all as well.
