Is it 2010 yet?

Thinking ahead to next year, I'm trying to put together a depth chart based on minutes this year, perceived talent, Rivals' rankings, Terry Hutchens' blog, etc.Indiana Hoosiers Matt Roth
We've actually over-committed on the scholarships by 1, which means if nobody transfers or gets kicked off the team, IU will be responsible for telling one of the current scholarship players that they're gonna have to pay their own way for tuition. Yikes. My guess before Saturday's game vs O$U was that person would be Matt Roth, but that was until the kid went 9-11 from long range. My next best guess would be Tijan Jobe, but how do you essentially 'cut' a 7-footer entering his senior year? You can't. It still may be too early to speculate, but this could potentially become a major issue.
Anyway, next year's freshman class (and redshirted Jeremiah Rivers) will bring big bodies and leadership, two things lacking from this year's squad. As you can see, we'll finally have depth in 2010:
PG: Jeremiah Rivers, Jordan Hulls, Verdell Jones III
SG: Devan Dumes, Maurice Creek, Matt Roth
SF: Christian Watford,
Nick Williams, Malik Story
PF: Tom Pritchard, Derek Elston, Bobby Capobianco
C: Bawa Muniru, Tijan Jobe
I like the idea of Nick Williams and Verdell Jones competing for 6th and 7th man next year. Is Malik Story transferring?

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/
