    Absolutely love this. A big fan. Will be one of the best in the state before it's all said and done. Ton of upside.

    I’ve learned that a dream class is something that is retrospective, not prospective.

    (2020) CG D.J. Steward

    Slow morning, so watched all of the Steward video I could find. Unlike a lot of kids, there’s quite a bit of useful video of him. He’s a fun watch. Obviously he’s a complete scorer, but what stood out to me is how clever he is around the rim. Uses his off shoulder and arm to create space without fouling, finds creases in traffic and is able to exploit the space while maintaining his body control and awareness to get the ball on the board and finish. That kid found some outrageous angles. He’ll be an effective scorer even if his shot isn’t falling, which, for me, really differentiates him from a kid like Leal. It’s easy to see Steward’s appeal, he can get a good look at will and he’ll flat kill guys in pick and roll. I hope Miller works this one until the kid says no.

    Sir, if you’re going to expect reasonableness from me, I will absolutely disappoint you. Pretty sure I said that to my Dad at some point, and I KNOW I disappointed that guy.

    So true. I'm in the Dominican Republic and two locals asked me where I was from, said Indiana, and they said, oh basketball! Sent from my LG-K371 using BtownBanners mobile app

    IU Track and Field

    3rd day of the NCAA championships - Eric Bethea, Kyle Mau, Daniel Michalski, and Cooper Williams return home as All-Americans after the final day of men's competition at NCAA Outdoor Championships. Williams was looking to add to his fifth-place finish and All-America honors in the 800m at indoor championships. The West Lafayette, Ind. native recorded a season best time of 1:46.45 to take fifth in a very competitive field. Racing in his last steeplechase as a Hoosier, Michalski was leading at the bell lap but an unfortunate fall at the water pit caused him to take seventh in his final meet while wearing the cream & crimson. Bethea also concluded his collegiate career on Friday night in the triple jump. The senior grabbed seventh with a personal best mark of 16.65m (54 7.5") to close out his career. Mau capped off the night by becoming a first team All-American in the 5K. The Hudson, Ohio native recorded a 14:09.62 to place eighth overall. Leah Moran is the loan Hoosier that will compete tomorrow to close out the 2019 NCAA Track & Field Outdoor Championships for the Hoosiers. Her triple jump stint will begin at 6:40 p.m. EST.

    Did anyone else notice the reason for the negativity has gone from this looks like a desperate move that will lead to creaning to if a lot of high majors are interested(if factual) then Archie has no shot. This fan base can be so laughable Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    Yes yes yes. This was overdue. Granted, it will likely benefit the more athletic teams initially like Kentucky and SEC teams. I, too, don’t care how we are initially effected. The game will be better in the long run. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    2020 General Recruiting Thread

    The collective freak out when Morton chose Purdue is what's not helpful, because it's clear that it was for nothing. Everybody was reacting based off of outdated rankings, even though it was clear that he was being passed on the AAU circuit. People were so desperate to believe that we were losing our recruiting momentum that they were reacting without facts, and as it turned out, getting up in arms about nothing. Morton had clearly become less of a priority, and it's now evident why. Evaluations change, and Morton's changed quickly, both for Archie and for the scouting industry. I was pretty sure before that Archie had backed off, and seeing these rankings I'm almost positive now. He's now nearly the lowest ranked player that we'd be pursuing (Galloway is just 2 spots behind him). If Morton had committed to Indiana, and then his ranking had fallen 60+ spots, people on this board would be freaking out about how Archie prioritized the wrong guy, and now we're stuck with an overrated guard when there are so many others that we could be pursuing. Yes, there's still a chance that Morton spurned IU even though Archie told him he was a top target and chose Purdue. But what's more likely? 1. A guy who had IU listed as one of his top schools and had scheduled a visit then deciding to skip the visit and not even include IU in his top 4 schools, or 2. a coach deciding to prioritize guys that were more skilled and had clearly surpassed Morton? The only way 1 is realistic is if Archie did something to completely infuriate Morton, and that seems extremely unlikely.

    I voted for that guy. The status quo isn’t working. I want consistent, stable, and successful football and basketball programs. This isn’t rocket science. It can be done.

    Yeah; I think the pessimistic tweets have been generated from Archie's careful word choice at the Huber presser. He said at one point that they were far far away from knowing Hunter's status, but then later described a pretty strong workout regimen that Hunter was already undertaking. The negative line got the attention. I listened to the whole speech and was generally encouraged.

    Of course it’s revisionist. We, mostly support Archie and his evaluation of players so when it’s made clear that he wants a kid and that kid commits we all rejoice. BUT, when those kids don’t pan out, of course we question those evaluations and offers and prioritization by our staff. I don’t recall anyone throwing a fit when moretti left campus without an offer but after taking his team to the ncaa finals this year, I do question that decision, especially since he shot 46% from 3 and we didn’t have anyone that could hit the broad side of a barn. Whether it’s Henry, Moretti, Anderson, Forrester etc, I support and give it some time. When time determines a decision to be a bad one I think it’s ok to call a spade a spade Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app
