Big Handsome going pro

Dry your tears: Cody Zeller, aka “Big Handsome,” is entering the NBA draft. If he decides to stay in, he will forgo his last two years of eligibility. Yesterday, fellow Hoosier Victor Oladipo announced he would enter the draft as well. As commenter Dr. Sayre asked in the comments section earlier, does that mean we’ll get a sequel to the video above?

    Boo Hoo Hoosiers. Those sweet 16 days will be a far cry for next years team. Better hang the banners while they can.

    Who, other than ugly IU groupies, finds Cody Zeller handsome? That beak of a nose and perpetual look of constipation doesn’t seem attractive to me.

    Glad to see this. IU fans have this holier than thou attitude that they are better than us because their players stay 4 years (the right way) and that we target the one and domes (wrong way)
    The truth is nobody is immune to the lure of the NBA and until now they didn’t have the players that the NBA wanted. Candy stripe this.

    Tyler Hansbrough part II. Screams and flops anytime there’s a little contact hoping for a foul call. If he shoots the 15 footer instead of flopping into defenders with poor footwork while screaming like he’s getting shot he may have a solid NBA career. Also, I’m pretty sure his dad played Freddy Krueger.

    Lots of rumors floating around the comments of Inside the Hall (IU equivalent to KSR) about 2 more IU players being cut by Crean the clapper and Remy Abell may transfer on his own. I guess all those Sweet 16 appearances were just to much for IU.

    Look at all of the dumb a$$es on here asking why he’s called the Big Handsome when he’s so ugly. Hey morons – it is a joke, which is why he’s called that. It would be like calling Mrs. TT Mrs. Handsome (a joke because she isn’t).

    Oladipo graduated in 3 years and Zeller is on pace to graduate in 2.5 years. I know this concept is foreign to UK and PayPal Cal’s mercenaries. Everyone knows Cal is a filthy cheater and it is only a matter of time until his wins are vacated. Memphis and UMASS show no record of PayPal Cal’s Final Four appearances….FACT

  38. Like Bledsoe???????

    What sort of Mickey Mouse classes do these people take that they finish COLLEGE DEGREES so quickly? They must be pretty easy majors. Obviously with his lack of understanding what the word handsome means, Ole Busted Mug Zeller isn’t an English major.

    37) FACT: Calipari has never been accused of anything besides haters who have nothing better to do than referring to him as “paypal Cal” like they’re being that creative. Were his UMASS and Memphis Final Fours vacated? Yes, but anybody who actually checks the facts would see that Calipari had nothing to do with either of those violations, besides notifying the NCAA when he found out about Camby, or playing Derrick Rose after the NCAA said he could. Please do us a favor and check your facts before you proclaim yourself “The Truth.”

    I can’t wait to see what happens next year in the NBA when Zeller grabs DeMarcus Cousins’ arm and tries to guide it down to his crotch trying to draw a flagrant foul. Should be comedy gold!

    40) You have to take in concideration that anything that deals with IU+the name “Truth” there isn’t much of the thought process there. It’s MUCH easier to say things like hat as to look it up and….wait….it’s coming….yeah that right READ. It’s normal for any and all IU fans to claimthat they do things the right way….Like hire a coach wh has already had his hands smacked for breaking rules, or have their coach text kids during the no contact time and then tell every UK fan that Cal cheats…
    If just one IU fan had a ounce of brain matter in between their ears this world would be a much nicer place. Go CATS! Screw Big Handsome ha ha ha

    40)two things:
    a) The only way this is the same thing as Enron is if the Enron CEO actually turned his guys in to the cops, or the police originally told him they weren’t going to arrest anybody.
    b) Keep politics out of it. This is KSR, not Fox News

    At IU we can’t win championships because we only recruit incredible students that are pretty good at basketball. We don’t recruit kids that would consider leaving college early to fulfill their dreams of playing in the NBA, and making millions of dollars. Every kid I recruit will get their degree, because it’s a fact that 100% of people with a degree are able to get a job. We also try not to recruit poor kids that may leave early(which is stupid) to simply make millions of dollars to help provide for their family. Don’t tell anybody that I recruited Teague before he signed with UK. In my defense, since his brother is in the NBA, I assumed he wouldn’t need to go to the NBA and would stay 4 years. Believe me, there are no other early-entrant players that I recruited. Please don’t check though and prove me wrong.

    “We found nothing that Coach Calipari did wrong in either instance at UMASS or Memphis. What we did find is that he is a victim caught up in 2 players who made bad decisions. Coach Calipari was a victim.”

    Victor Oladipo and Cody (Vanilla Wafer) Zeller are leaving early but before they do Tom Crean has scheduled 2 net cutting ceremonies. The reason being that if they would have stayed IU would have cut down the championship nets 2 years in a row. Championship Rings, Trophy Cases, Mock Post Game press conferences and team hugs have also been ordered/planned.

    62) That would be 1976. They thought they were in 1975 until Cats spanked them and ended their undefeated season in the mid east regional. Their teams after 1976 were never dominant.

    61) The big 10 has 1 championship since 1990. IU has back-to-back sweet 16 losses and no championships since the 80s. IU hasn’t even been the best team in Indiana the past few seasons. IU fans, and Big 10 fans have this sense of superiority that the teams simply can’t live up to. They’re the best. Except when they play good teams from other conferences. Then they’re okay. Sometimes above average, sometimes not, but not good enough to win a tournament. You’re delusional.

    I see success has found it’s way to IU… That’s what happens when your the kind of team that cuts the nets down 10-15 times a season and you win at least 4 or 5 rings a year!!!!! As UK fans we can only dream of that kind of success…because we always have to remember this. ONLY 1 team makes it to the sweet 16!!!!!!!! No wait, my math seems wrong there….16 teams make it…IU is average after all.
