    As far as Troy. I always liked him. Underappreciated player imo. Could have been a weapon on a well coached team. Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners

    It's truly amazing how much Freddie became endeared to the fans with his hard work and team spirit.

    He's probably hoping Allen knocks it out of the park on this one so that when Allen gets fired, he'll have his next head coach ready to step in.

    It seems Devonte Green has inherited the mantle of most frustrating player. Likely from Newkirk who got it from Troy. This surely goes to back to before Verdell Jones. How far back does the tree go? This is purely meant in jest but I’m trying to recall those notoriously frustrating IU players.

    Tree of Frustration

    I am a little surprised to see some bad players on this list. Why would anyone be frustrated because a bad player didn't meet inflated or misguided expectations? I was on a rec team that beat a team Eggers was on by 30, roughly 5 years after he graduated. Bad player. Larry Richardson was uncoordinated and had the touch of a blacksmith. Bad player. Never had a chance to be good. Luke Jiminez? Someone was seriously frustrated with Luke Jiminez? Charlie Miller's problem was he was a 6'6" lefty that came here the season after another certain 6'6" lefty graduated. He could never fill those shoes. Lindeman was not a good player, but I wonder if anyone remembers he shot 62% from the field as a senior, and averaged 10 points, 4 rebounds, and a block a game? Meeks? Was essentially a 20 minute guy who had a career 3:1 A/TO ratio and is 4th all time in assists at IU. Why is he on the list? Never was a true scorer...not even in high school. I don't get that one at all. My list? I'll leave off the players who shouldn't have been here in the first place like Priller, Hoetzel, April, Jurkin, Michele, Jobe, etc. Starts with frustration with our administration for not taking the hiring process seriously for 17 years. Mike Davis frustrated me more than any human being for the entirety of his stay at Indiana. Crean a close second. Some of the kids those two recruited were embarrassing. Bracey Wright Richard Mandeville Verdell Jones (Captain Turnover and he stood more than any player in IU history) Jason Collier and Luke Recker - two very highly touted kids with all kinds of ability; never bought into Knight and never did what they could have at Indiana. Donald Perry (Captain Turnover II - not as many, but he had a knack for poor timing) Pat Ewing (anyone remember he was here for 2 years?) Sean Kline DeVonte Green - yeah...he has to be here, but improvement is possible. Saw it Sunday. AJ Ratliff - always thought he could have been SO much better than he was. Joey Shaw - his dad's suits were worth the price of admission; but this is a kid who said he would be an NBA star. Armon Bassett Tom Pritchard Top 3 : Stanford Robinson (no, he shouldn't have been here, either; but since he was...when does a kid change shooting hands in the middle of his college career??) Noah Vonleh - he couldn't have cared less about Indiana University and mailed in most of his games. I have no use for that kid at all. Stats be damned, that kid was here to go to the NBA. That's it. His team was 17-15 and he made nobody better. There were 3 NBA players on that team, and they went 17-15. Anyone could easily see after that year what a crock Tom Crean was. Jeremy Hollowell. Was a PIA in high school, never worked hard or made himself better, was lazy, couldn't have cared less. Never has a kid with so much ability gotten so little from it.

    Josh Newkirk really got me. Similar or more than Devonte Green. 2 guys that frustrated me in different ways. These guys we both ok players but never reached their potential. Marshall Strickland and Rob Johnson. ( I know it’s probably unpopular but RJ would drive me nuts at times). Never seen a guy step out of bounds so many times shooting 3s.

    Injury Updates

    As I have hinted at before I think IU has a stricter concussion protocol than most (and I have kind of heard this very second so it may not be accurate but it makes sense). Instead of looking at this as a negative I think IU should be commended for being extra careful not to injure someones brain long term. It is aggravating in some ways and Rob probably would be back at other schools (Race is a different deal and I believe that concussion would have kept him out months regardless of where he played) but I like IU being careful. I expect Rob back for either PU or at the latest Michigan but that's a total guess. Note the extra careful only seems to apply with head injuries since they let Romeo play through a bruised nose and wrist (he had a band aid on his nose for a game and still has a wrist wrap) and Juwan played next game after the ankle injury he suffered against Northwestern with a wrap for a couple games. With Deron it is an issue of trying to play through an Achilles injury that is hard to come back from so he is over compensating and injuring other parts of the body as he heals I believe (and a person who is a doctor in my family believes this also although he has no knowledge of team itself). McRoberts back appears to be chronic issue. In other words we have definitely been bitten by injuries more so than others but besides Rob it has been a lot of bad luck and no different than something any other school has or will go through. Rob and other head injuries are a different deal and IU is most likely over compensating but not sure that's a bad thing. This anger and being suspicious among fans would all be solved if IU would just come out and say they are extra careful with concussions compared to other teams and they are protecting athletes well being. This is where IU is making an error PR wise not how they are treating concussions.

    Georgia wins and only turns it over 12 times. Are we sure Crean is still the coach down there?
