    Yes, I know that Indiana did not make the NCAA tournament and that Coach Crean was fired.  
    No, I don’t know who the new coach will be. These are my most frequently asked questions. I don’t really mind but I have no way of doing anything or knowing anything about either one. I do know that I have not been asked so it can be safely assumed that I won’t be the coach.   
    The same thing, different year title applies to the following scenarios: Favored teams win in the tournament.  Favored teams get upset in the tournament.

  • Moments when we all feel trapped

    I was at the movies the other evening and viewed the upcoming films that would soon arrive. One particular summer film by Warner Brothers caught my attention, Dunkirk. This movie is a true story of one of the most remarkable miracles of World War II. This miracle is beloved and cherished by those who are aware of what happened in a little French fishing village in 1940.
