    Really love this kid’s game. Imagine all that dead-eye shooting with Blackman, Stauskus and Irvin.

    • Mark Worthley

      Let’s not get ahead of ourselves but, why didn’t you include Booker?

      • Champswest

        Maybe because Booker isn’t a Wolverine and Stauskus and Irving are.

        • Mark Worthley

          Blackman is?

    College Game Day will be at the Notre Dame game. This is perfect for what should be the biggest recruiting weekend of the year for both football and basketball. Atmosphere will be absolutely electric all day.

    James is a lightsout scorer and can take over a game in an instant. I saw him play twice this year and was made a believer. Luckily IU can’t hold onto their recruits when these guys see that better programs are out there for them.
