    From the time his position was announced, I was worried the hierarchy of "1. IU, 2. Purdue, .... 493. Butler" would form and I think that's what happened. Now, that's not why he got laid off at all. But I'd rather a singular Butler writer than someone having to juggle 3 beats. I follow him on Twitter and it definitely seemed like he wrote more IU/PU content than Butler. Someone would have to check my work on that, though.

    The balance of his articles was about what I expected from the moment The Athletic announced his hiring and the nature of the beat. It was more heavily slated to IU, but Purdue and Butler got decent coverage.

    With Purdue and Butler he was coming in from scratch, but he had covered IU for the Bloomington newspaper in the early '10s. It was always going to be easier for him to get stories there.

    Also the Athletic's performance metrics are based on page views and we all know that IU has the biggest fan base of those three teams.

    I wondered from the beginning if a beat based on those three schools - as spread out as they are - was even viable long term.

    Could be complete heresay but...a lady last night as I was eating dinner got on the subject of pizza hut and told he she has heard whispers that they are making plans to bring back eat in services at a few locations whenever this stupid idiot rona goes to hell. I hope what she was saying was accurate.

    We've got a whole slew of eat-in pizza huts down here. Sadly, they have removed the video games... :(

    That should be illegal. If I go to pizza hut and eat in, I want to play Ms Pac Man and Galaga. It's my God given right to do so.

    Moving my daughter back onto campus today. She's in Hinkle getting her test and welcome packet. Hope the test is quick and accurate. She's not going to like the fact that it's the cranium scrape version, at all! She's been afraid of getting shots her whole life.

    Clearly a charge here...

    And because it was a Bulldog, you know the official will call it that way.

    I probably won't watch much more of the Western Conference Finals because of the way it was officiated. With that said, the Heat, even though I hope Boston wins, are showing our future blueprint for success. Five guys that can drive, shoot and pass!

    Nijel Pack from Lawrence Central gets to play at Hinkle. We'll see how he compares to Tate & Harris.
