Do be considered to be an elite school like Duke you actually have to have won a tournament game in the last ten years. How dillusional are you to consider IU on the same level as Duke in today's landscape even with Duke stinking it up last year.
"You can tell IU has once again joined the elite schools again (like Duke), because the discussion on this kid is what can he do for us right now? The answer to this question is not much, BECAUSE HE DOESN'T NEED TO DO ANYTHING!!! For my money, I bet if you red-shirt Pritchard his freshman year, that he will be a co-captain his senior year. Yes, we are in the hunt, but let this freshman be a freshman. He has a big ten body and will only get stronger. Coach will teach him how to defend and he will be a "6th man" that every team needs."
..real effort from durham..overrated hoosiers go there..

IU must play Indiana HS grads to generate real excitement for the team. When an IU team with Indiana players wins, it makes us proud of Indiana. It's in our blood.

The only people who recruited Brian Cardinal were Purdue and, guess who, Penn State........I would guess most IU fans would be very happy with a Brian Cardinal........If not, they would be pretty stupid....

I'd love to have Zeller, don't get me wrong....but some of you seem to be forgetting that IU has also got a commitment from Ebanks. Ebanks is a top 15 recruit guys, remember that. That's top 15 in the nation, not the state. It's not like we are going to be screwed if we don't get Zeller.
I wish TZ the best of luck, but at this point I can't imagine that Zeller would choose Purdue. I'm sure the kid would love the chance at a championship. He would obviously have a much better chance at IU. Also he has supposedly changed to a business major, and IU's undergrad program is way, way, way better than Purdue's undergrad program.
Seems like all of the signs are pointing towards Zeller deciding to play for IU. We'll see. But again, if he doesn't then we still have Ebanks, a top 15 recruit. Zeller would certainly be the icing on the cake, but don't overlook what Ebanks brings to the table.
But man oh man...can you imagine a team with Zeller AND Ebanks? Not to mention everyone else? Wowzers.
If Zeller decides to play for IU...He will receive an outstanding Business degree and he will quite possibley have the chance to play for a B10 title and National Championship every year that he is here. No way in heck Z decides to go to Purdue unless he is a closet Boiler fan.
May want to check out the following rankings on that business school argument.

Ummmm, you might want to educate yourself on the difference between "Graduate" and "Undergraduate".

You Purdue clowns really have trouble with spelling and reading comprehension. Speaks volumes for the quality of your diplomas...

Amazing that anyone still considers Duke the example of an outstanding program. 1 trip past the sweet 16 in the past 6 years. Exactly the same number as St. Joes, George Washington, and Kent State. Oh yeah, and IU.

Ummmmm, Doofus, the point Dr. Jackson was making was that IU's undergrad program was way way way better than Purdue's. While I agree with you that my list was the graduate programs, only a Doofus would not be able to infer that by having a top notch graduate program, you would also have just as good of an undergraduate program. Thanks for allowing me the opportunity to express my point just a little better, Doofus.

??? That's absolutely idiotic. Undergraduate programs and graduate programs are completely separate entities. You obviously never went to college.....or went to Purdue.

Actually he's right, perhaps you should actually know something about a subject before making yourself look like an idiot....or Purdue fan.

Because I know you two Purdue fans will have trouble comprehending all of those words, here's the short version:

Undergraduate Business Programs
Indiana 18 (You'll have to use your fingers and toes to count to this number)
Purdue 60 (Use your mommies and daddies fingers and toes to count to this one)

Think of it this way, at least you can use the paper your diploma is printed on to light a fire in the garbage can next to the cardboard box you sleep in. I hear Madison gets awfully cold...
