Go IU

Cullksinikers 11-27-2012 09:27 PM

I am accepted at IU.

Let's just say that it's extremely hard to not let the basketball atmosphere factor into my decision.

MurrayBannerman 11-27-2012 09:47 PM

Campus lifestyle should definitely factor into your decision. College isn't a job, it's an experience.

Cullksinikers 11-27-2012 10:15 PM

It's more about price and direct admittance into my preferred major.

Ok, those are more important. :laugh:

I just don't get how someone wouldn't want to be a part of all that in a place they are going to spend the best 4+ years of their life. And it's pretty much the 1 thing I have in common with all my friends today.

What's crazy is that it was pretty much the same when they were bad as it was yesterday. The UK, Illinois, and Purdue games my junior year were just insane.

Sports aren't really a big deal here. It'd be one thing if I came during Hummell's hay day, but ever since then, the whole campus has been kind of jaded with sports.

IU Hawks fan 11-28-2012 08:54 AM

That's only cuz they're bad at both right now. That's not gonna be the case forever.

Just as long as they don't play Duke or ND, I still root for them anyways. Just not with any real tenacity or anything.

Plus, I still got a lot of school left for me and I doubt it all is going to be at Purdue.

Cubs sniffing around Keppinger

Duke and Notre Dame, you make it really hard to like you

Wouldn't be against it, he's a solid utility guy who can play the entire infield.

Cullksinikers 11-28-2012 10:23 AM

I know this sounds ridiculous, but I hate Keppinger. One of my least favorite players in baseball. Is he a bad guy? No. Was he pesky as an Astro and have a few walk-off hits against the Cubs? Yes.

Keppinger aboard would present a nice piece off the bench. It also presents an opportunity to trade Barney and have a second base replacement immediately.

I have known people for years who have rooted for Duke and Notre Dame. What pisses me off is that they root for Duke basketball and Notre Dame football.

If you ask them about Duke football or Notre Dame basketball, they are clueless and pretend that they don't matter.

RayP 11-28-2012 10:32 AM

Why would you trade Barney? And what would you even start to ask for if you did give him up? Earliest he can be a FA is 2017. Since he doesn't have gaudy offensive numbers, I can't imagine you'd get anything in return that'd make it worth dealing him.

Illinihockey 11-28-2012 10:41 AM

Went 6-6 last night, have a good feeling about tonight

Iowa at Virginia Tech
Minnesota at Florida State
NC State at Michigan
Nebraska at Wake Forest
Maryland at Northwestern
North Carolina at Indiana
Virginia at Wisconsin
Purdue at Clemson
Michigan State at Miami
Georgia Tech at Illinois
Boston College at Penn State
Ohio State at Duke

8-4 Big 10

Exactly. They're fans of sports teams and not of schools. Which, to me, kind of just goes against what I think college sports stands for.

Selling high.

I am not sure if he is the two-bagger for the future. Dude obviously is among the best with the leather, but you can certainly sell high and use the Gold Glove to boost his value (or try to).

I still kind of root for both of them. I like Renfree a lot at Duke. I'd like to see the Bears snatch him up for the practice squad.

But, man, did I dislike Luke Harangody something fierce.

It's hard because I think he's key to Castro's defensive development. So, I would sell high only if we could get a suitable defensive replacement at 2B, or 3B for that matter.
