    Loving the baby pool talk, my work almost did that for me (Baby Jaybob #2 was born last Monday :) ). Hope it happens, can’t imaging what could happen to this thread if it drags on anymore lol. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    IUFB Offseason Updates

    But after seeing the scrimmage on Saturday if Penix is not the starter we need to have some serious questions and answers with the staff. He was unstoppable.

    It's an interesting theory that Jay Wright and Tony Bennett are positioned as coaches that win with under recruited players and win without high end talent. While it's absolutely true that Villanova and Virginia won titles without one and done players, both rosters had plenty of top 50/100 ranked kids. For Nova, of the 8 guys that played double-digit minutes for their 2018 team 5 were top 100 recruits and 6 were top 125. Brunson and Spellman were ranked in the 20's, with Brunson being a McDonald's All-American, and then they got lucky that DiVincenzo (ranked 124) hit like an Oladipo (to a lesser extent). For Virginia, Diakite was ranked #32, Guy was #37 (McDonald's AA), Jerome was #44 and Deandre Hunter was #91. The core of that team was mostly top 50 guys and then again Hunter turned out way better than even his top 100 position. I really think the key to winning, especially when you're not going to compete with UK, Duke and Kansas consistently on the recruiting trail, is to build around as many of these top 20-70 guys as possible that stay 2-3 years, and then surround them with your Phinisee's, Franklin's, Leal's, Galloway's and Brunk's.

    Matt Cross official to A&M is coming up. Technically he would still have some senior official visits that he could take but I feel he will decide soon after this last official. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    And THAT's why Kentucky and Duke have so many National Championships lately, and Villanova and UVA have failed so misera... Wait ... WhaHuh? (BTW: talent does matter, but the theory above is just plain silliness IMO)

    I have a feeling that Indiana is about to start being Indiana again. Have the Indiana kids, things seem to be headed in the right direction or it’s the beer talking

    Prayer Thread

    Hate continuing to ask but I’d appreciate all thoughts and prayers for me. My body decided it wasn’t happy without throwing clots. I clotted again recently while being on blood thinners. I know I’m blessed in life with so many other things but if I never clot again I’d be a very happy dude. Thanks in advance all. Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners

    Luke Brown has become a basketball Rorschach test for some on this board. If you really want to know what someone wants the program to look like at their core level, opinion of Brown is a pretty good indicator.

    Who says Lewis and Cheaney are better recruiters or coaches? Because they were better players or bigger names? That sh*t fades fast. You need passionate grinders. Lewis just went to UCLA (big time program, LA). Calbert is coaching pros. Roberts seems like the perfect fit for CAM. But this is speculation until it happens.

    Doubt it. Both crystal balls from South Carolina insiders. Most the talk before the 2 new visits was for IU and Miami but i f anyone is saying they know where he is leaning they are lying. I would say IU has as good as chance as anybody when it’s all said and done Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Dominate? Strong word from my end and you are right wasn’t the right one. This staff has seen him a ton. I think any that follow recruiting enough realize IU watches his AAU team a ton. He just isn’t a fit for what CAM is building. His wings are in that 6’4”-6’7” range long and athletic for a reason. It fits his team. The fact we have so many more posts dedicated to a kid that doesn’t have a single high D1 offer is crazy to me. Why keep in touch? To this point supposedly PU is. Are they really? Not according to their fans. Why should we keep in touch with a player that just doesn’t fit the roster in any way? That’s my thing. If we should keep in touch with him I would be willing to bet we would keep in touch with a multitude of other Indiana high school players and that minimizes CAM in the state to high school coaches. At this point he can walk into a gym and it means something. He is not Crean. He is focused on who and what he is after. I respect that aspect of him. I understand what you guys are saying but if he hasn’t done it after him and his staff have watched him more than most it just isn’t going to happen. As a priority walk on? Sure. But those come closer to the end of their Senior year. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app
