Hoosiers 2009 class ranks top 5 nationally

Christian Watford joins Bobby Capobianco, Derek Elston, Maurice Creek and Jordan Hulls as incoming freshman committed to playing basketball for Tom Crean and the Indiana Hoosiers starting next Fall. Rivals had previously ranked IU in the top 10 in the nation before Watford made his announcement and now has them at #4. Bob Gibbons says they may be right there with UNC's #1 '09 class - and that's without including the addition of Georgetown transfer Jeremiah Rivers (Doc's son), who won't be eligible to play until after this season.
The depth at forward, however, will be missed this year during Crean's inaugural season of the 10-yr contract. The Hoosiers new Head Coach takes over a program in which only 1 scholarship player remains from the Sampson Error, and even he (Taber) is a former walk-on.
Hopefully no additional NCAA penalties await us from the impermissible phone calls and the alarming dropout rate.

Bonus (via InsideTheHall): BAWA!!!

Hyperbolic Obit for Hyperbolic Orbit

Did you see the lunar eclipse this morning? Did you see the one last month!? Do you even watch the sky, bro?? Comet Leonard [named after Colts All-Pro Darius Leonard] aka c/2021, the year's best & brightest, will make it's first and only appearance in the East before sunrise (between Big Dipper's handle & Arcturus) and then in the western sky after sunset starting on the 14th, looking towards the sun (ouch!)  I say "only" appearance because this happened 80,000 years ago but let's be honest they didn't have the tools we have now, and we're not yet positive this'll be visible to the unaided eye. But we do know it's hyperbolic orbit will soon fling the comet out of the Milky Way, and possibly into another solar system lightyears away.  RIP Comet Leonard 12/12/21 You're a Star (& comet)

64-team bracket BLANK

Go ahead and knock yourself out with this blank bracket, but I ( and Joe Lunardi ) find it more enjoyable setting the field before Sunday...

Indy vs. Boston battle for America's best suburbs

Joining Carmel as one of the best places to live in America (and the world), neighbors Zionsville and Westfield are now also ranked in the top 10 in the newest ‘Best Small Cities’ study, according to WalletHub:  https://wallethub.com/edu/best-worst-small-cities-to-live-in/16581 Boston & Indy suburbs dominated the top of the list, with Lancaster (PA) taking the top spot.  Not only is Indianapolis one of the fastest growing cities in America, it's the only city on the list not located in the South or West:  https://www.inspectionsupport.com/resources/the-fastest-growing-metropolitan-areas-in-the-u-s/
