MSU trustee Joel Ferguson’s comments about Nassar show him to be an indifferent imbecile
January 24, 2018

Joel Ferguson is an imbecile. The vice chairman of the Michigan State University Board of Trustees said this on the radio in Detroit yesterday: “The meeting we had the other day was five hours. And talking Lou Anna (the president of Michigan State University) was 10 minutes,..We unanimously decided in that meeting right away … we were […]

Nassar sentencing hearing shows need for humanity in conference rooms
January 24, 2018

Anyone who has been in management for a business or an administrator for a university has been there. “What’s our liability, and how do we limit it?” That’s the question that is asked and answered anytime legal issues arise because of a wronged employee or customer. Careers hinge upon finding the correct response, and there […]

Purdue is the best college basketball team in America, regardless of rankings
January 22, 2018

There is no team playing basketball at a higher level than Purdue. I haven’t seen every team play, but I have seen Purdue play every time the Boilermakers have taken the court, and I cannot fathom anyone else playing with the same collective energy, focus, and precision.

NCAA prez Mark Emmert with more big words – when will there be action?
January 21, 2018

Mark Emmert is either a good man losing the battle as he paddles against the stiff tide of corruption, or a shameless con artist who continues to blather in opposition to his own understanding that cheating in college basketball is as firmly embraced and long-standing as the 10-foot height of the rim.

No injections or surgery, I believe Colts Andrew Luck about trip to The Netherlands
December 30, 2017

Colts QB Andrew Luck spoke to the media yesterday for the first time in a couple of months. He was raw, emotional, and melancholy as he described the psychological torment that caused him to hop on a plane for The Netherlands. This was not the smiling and occasionally playful Luck we have grown accustomed to […]

Save your tears as Colts coach Chuck Pagano likely is fired – good run & ton of cash
December 29, 2017

Indianapolis Colts coach Chuck Pagano will almost certainly be fired Monday.  That will be a bitter pill for Pagano to swallow. Being told to leave your employer’s place of business is never fun, and while Pagano will feel some emotional upheaval upon hearing the news – if he hasn’t already – he will leave Indianapolis […]

Curtis Jones leaves Indiana Basketball program – best for both Jones & Hoosiers?
December 4, 2017

Coaching changes bring a change of culture.  Culture change brings adversity.  Adversity brings roster changes. Such is the cycle of life in college basketball. Curtis Jones was recruited to Indiana by Tom Crean, and he played his freshman season for the former coach.  When Archie Miller replaced Crean, it became clear very quickly that the […]
