    As long as it's not IU, I'm ok. For his sake.

    He's about to get that car salesman sell from Buzz. Florida generally gets who they want. Miami is intriguing...come on kid, don't pick IU.

    Interesting quotes on Butler though. Sounds like the visit went well and PT is key to him. I mean, I guess there's a shot here? I mostly have written him off but would be insanely happy to be wrong. This is one talented puppy.

    Would put us at 58.20 in the class calculator. Top 3 right behind X...

    Coles, Brown, Cross or Johnson better grab the Butler offer soon.

    Not to get into semantics, but using that old Butler psych degree, his phrasing tells me that Butler is out. The words "was intriguing" vs. "is intriguing" is a classic past tense slip that he's no longer considering us.

    I mean, it's not conclusive because he was talking about a visit in the past, but I'm thinking this is a little tell. No biggie, but I'd be shocked (happily) if he chose us.

    Looks like he started using past tense when he was going over the Florida visit, too. Idk either way. *Shrugs*

    The pattern has been to expect the unexpected. Let's keep it that way.

    This thought of mine might be out there a bit but wouldn’t it be a good thing for Eugene brown to see Matt cross considering butler heavily like this? Another good player at his position in his class interested in butler whether he picks them or not

    I would say it surely doesn't hurt and also could be an eye opener for all of the remaining targets...they are all forwards (Brown being a hybrid big guard/forward) and Cross is a forward...I believe it helps in the regard of them seeing another big time forward not only having Butler on his radar, but zeroing in on Butler as a finalist. Makes us look a priority and spots are limited...so Coles, Scooby and Brown should have raised their eyebrow at that report. IMO.

    Their writers are saying that it isn’t clear if they’d take cross or not. Probably shouldn’t get our hopes up though, sounds like Miami and some others are probably a head of us. Anything can happen though I guess.

    Amazing how IU fans and writers can deceive themselves. Both Florida and Butler are far ahead of IU in basketball this century. And to help the writer Butler is not a football school just like IU is not a football school.

    I’ve never seen so much delusional people when it comes to their program than IU. From top to bottom.

    That is a Fansided submission. That isn't a writer, its just a random shmoe who signed up to do that, there's no barrier to entry.

    Shows what the 2017 IU grad knows (writer)—multiple reports of Miller desperately wanting Cross and is the lead recruiter. They have room for him—it’s a no brainer. Will be interesting to see where this goes.

    I think the authors who write for Fansided can be compensated. I don't disagree with you that the barrier to entry is low, but if clicks turn into cash they pay-for-performance.

    In the last 20 years ('99-'19):

    National Champs:
    Zero (both schools)

    National Finalist:
    2 BU, 1 IU

    Made Final Four:
    2 BU, 1 IU

    Made Elite Eight:
    2 BU, 1 IU

    Made Sweet Sixteen:
    5 BU, 3 IU

    Lost in NCAA second round:
    4 BU, 4 IU

    Lost in NCAA first round:
    2 BU, 3 IU

    Maybe they can celebrate their "banners" by bringing the '76 team back again this year if all of the former players have on their Depends.
