missed the game but glad too see purdue won.  too bad it was against butler, but im an iupui guy so i cant feel too badly for them 

 

hopefully they can still make a final 4

Yeah that is where I graduated from IUPUI, back in the 90's. I am an old man lmao. I grew up an IU fan in the 80's and 90's and loved the Bobby Knight days. Now days if Purdue is Good I root for them if IU isn't in the Tourney. I like Butler and ND too as well being from Indiana. It's funny back in the Knight days it was a sin too like Purdue so I didn't like them at all because of that rivalry, now days I have softened up on it. I picked Purdue for the Final 4 so I hope they keep train moving!

Everytime I watch Syracuse I think of the 1987 National Championship Game. I was 15 when that game was played. I remember watching it at home with Smart winning it at the buzzer! I damn near jumped through the ceiling! I was so happy for Alford getting that Ring. Unreal that was 31 years ago! IUPUI made the Tourney back in 1993 when I was there, we got blown out by KY but made it haha 

 

*2003 I meant lmao. I went to Ivy Tech in the 90's and then finished up my 4 year degree in 2003 at IUPUI.

Two teams I would not mind seeing out of the tournament are North Carolina and Duke. North Carolina is playing now. Did Duke already advance?

I agree, I don't like either team. Duke already is in and they have won big in both their games. NC will probably win tonight, If I hear the name JoBerry 1 more time I am going to mute NC games when I watch them. The Announcers have said his name like every 10 seconds. Why don't they just say Berry instead of his whole name?

What a low scoring game between Syracuse and Michigan State! They have played 16 minutes and neither has scored 20 points. 

It really was an ugly game. Neither team had much of an offense. Michigan State couldn't seem to make anything at the end

I'm over sports every time my team is one of the best all year long they blow it really hope the same thing don't happen to the pacers 

Pacers have had a Good season, if they win a Playoff series the rest is gravy IMO. They are a year or 2 away from being Great. Either Houston or GS State will win it all. As Great as LeBron is, Cavs have 0 chance of beating either one of those teams.

    • Listening to Kevin Bowens podcast he said he talked to Chris Hagen (local media guy who interviewed Steichen yesterday). Hagen said Steichen was a little startled when he learned Hagen was from Indy. He said he asked him about the Indy colts job. He said he was polite but reiterated many times his focus was on the game.  Apparently Steichen, Callahan, Ballard have same agent. So that would make total sense why there hasn’t been any leaks if it’s one of those two guys. 
    • We lost several offensive assistants over the last few years, some of whom are having an impact on other teams. I think that had a big impact on player development. Sirianni took Kevin Patullo and Jason Michael, we had previously lost Tom Rathman, no more Howard Mudd (RIP), DeGuglielmo should be mentioned...    On defense, we lost Jonathan Gannon, and he'll be a HC soon (maybe Cardinals this year?) I believe we've been deficient at DL coach for a while (we shuffled some guys there), and maybe there was a disconnect between the FO and the coaches that led to some missed picks, like Banogu.    So when I talk about coaching, I'm not just talking about Frank. I'm also about his assistants, his pipeline after some attrition, etc.
    • Frank likely would have been fired after last season but for the contract extension. I have to believe that Franks sales job to Irsay on what he could accomplish with what he had consistently came up short.  We absolutely had player development issues and certainly some of that was failures by Ballards staff with their projections.
    • It's obvious that Reich told Ballard 'I think Ryan can still play, and we can win with him.' If Reich was saying 'ehh, he looks kind of done, and I think I'd rather have Baker Mayfield,' I think we would have gone in a different direction.   I don't put that all on Reich, but no doubt he fully endorsed the Ryan move.
    • Positional value and impact is part of a totally different conversation, and has very little bearing on whether trading for a player should be considered aggressive. If you trade a 1st for a punter, it's aggressive (and probably stupid, but still aggressive). It's certainly not risk averse, as you're trying to categorize it. The Buckner move was absolutely aggressive, and belongs in the conversation with the AJ Brown move, as it's basically the same thing.   And while, in a vacuum, trading up for a QB in 2020 would have been the more aggressive move, I could argue that signing Rivers was just as risky. He was 39, coming off of a bad season, switching teams for the first time in his career. He played well enough, but then retired, and so was a bit of a sunk cost.
