    Oh, not denying it’s a business driven bias, but I also believe there is a bias in content—as in rooting for IU to win. It may not be as obvious in the articles but moreso in the tweets. I don’t think that should be the role of a journalist—even if it’s their alma mater and the majority of their readership.

    Agree, especially the Purdue stuff. Gannett bought the Lafayette Courier & Journal and they still use the same content that's published daily. It couldn't be more biased.

    If this was the case, there would be a picture gallery of Colts cheerleaders on the front page of the sports section everyday. It's the biggest clicks day of the year lol (unless something out of the ordinary in sports happens).

    Well.... at least the man is consistent. I have to give him that. He is never able to seal the deal. Well I guess maybe next time. o_O

    Lots of good players being recruited. That’s a plus. But only 1 has said yes. Khalif Battle. You’re not a good recruiter if your finishing 2nd or 3rd most of the time. Time will tell. At least the effort is there.

    I'm not quite sure where all the LJ can't recruit buzz is coming from but it doesn't seem fair. Based on the 247 composite scores Tucker and Battle are 2 of the highest rated players in Butler's history. Just because we don't hear about the staff doing their jobs doesn't mean LJ and the boys aren't doing their jobs.

    We literally just “sealed the deal” over both ASU and NC ST which is unquestionably less probable than over Baylor alone.

    Now I understand that we all wanted this one more than the one we got, but this sentiment is at least dumb OR dishonest, and possibly dumb and dishonest.

    To be honest I wasn’t really feeling this guy. I guess you can say it would fit Lavall’s live and die by the three style but I don’t see much of an upgrade to the team. The sentiment is neither dumb or dishonest. Tucker feel into our laps due to the graces of Georgetown bowing out. The only true recruiting victory that I’ll give Jordan for is Golden. I’ve stated numerous times that Lavall can spot the talent as well as anyone but he can’t seem to seal the deal. By the way..... does Smits shoot threes? For him to choose us over the two other schools that were in the running is a head scratcher. Lavalls system will not fit his abilities down low if he is a back to the basket type of guy. He will be wasting his last year if thats the case.

    Battle is Lavall's big recruiting win to date.

    I guess you can say that. I see it different though. Lavall and the family already had a relationship so in my opinion he did not have to work as hard as he had to with Golden. IMO

    You seriously cannot concede anything. Not asking you to swing left next year, just identify that it’s a good recruiting win.

    I’m not happy with the current state of affairs, either, but come on. It’s like doing an employee review and no credit given for anything good and all the focus is on what went wrong. Not how you motivate.

    I believe that most on this board would disagree with you. IMO
