    (2019) SF Keion Brooks Jr.

    Pretty funny seeing all these people try to get the “insider” label knowing the final decision when the kid himself still doesn’t know for sure. Things change daily folks, think of 18 year old relationships.... nothing is set in stone until the letter is signed. Best thing we can do is be normal and talk about our current roster. Cus that’s a lot of fun to talk about right now :)
  2. I've been relatively quiet this season. Many factors play into that outside of basketball, but the primary saying of "If you don't have anything nice to say..." applies here. I have a couple thoughts I think are important to remember as we move forward. We were never as good as we thought we were. Romeo is an elite player, that gave us hope. Our 3 game stretch with close nail biting wins was exciting and gave us something to get behind. In reality, that ranking was the worst thing that could happen to us. It gave us too much hope. College basketball and football transition are tough. ESPECIALLY when your coaching style is vastly different than the predecessor. We've all seen Crean's comments about his situation at Georgia, Archie could make the same comments here. Our players are good, I'm not knocking them at all, but they are built for a different system. I'm a firm believer in giving College coaches a FREE 4 year pass and getting critical in year 5. It takes time to create YOUR culture and "unbrainwash" a previous culture for lack of a better term. This is well documented with the coaches that don't have instant success. Even if you don't agree with the 4 year pass, you have to in this situation. Indiana fired Tom Crean who was coming off Big Ten Championships and Sweet 16 appearances. Then you hire Archie and don't give him a fair shake and get rid of him early. What coach in their right mind would sign up to be the next coach at Indiana? It's career suicide. Nothing can happen with Archie until after year 5. Archie was an incredible coach at Dayton. The man didn't forget how to coach. Guarantee he's more frustrated than all of us are. Our fanbase isn't better or worse than any other fanbase. Every team has passionate fans that air out their grievances over Twitter and message boards. Pick any school and lose 10 out of 11 and you'll see this exact reaction or worse. I will say seeing how empty Assembly Hall is EVERY game is more troubling to me than anything else. That isn't helping. Keion Brooks - I don't believe it's over for Indiana. This skid hasn't helped our cause, but it's not a deal breaker. HIgh School players put a major emphasis on who they will be playing with, style of play, facilities and most importantly the impact on their future. I went to Indiana because I wanted to be a part of the Kelley School to advance my career after college. Prospects are looking at Indiana and what they can offer to get the to the next level. That is their goal, College is their stepping stone to achieve that goal. At the end of the day, Keion will make the best decision for him and his family. If that's to Kentucky, then I'm happy for him and hope he succeeds. Him choosing another school isn't bashing Indiana. It's making an informed decision that is in his best interest. In conclusion, the product we've seen on the court is embarrassing. It's a total lack of confidence from the entire team, no grit. Fight or Flight????? We've got that questions answered. All that being said, I'm still going to watch every game, it's the punishment I still look forward too. The highs will get higher, I pray the lows won't get any lower. I'm still a Hoosier. You guys are still Hoosiers. The road ahead will get better. Just RELAX.

    Got an update, but don't think they should be posted. Please pray for terry and hope he can fight through this.
  10. As many of you know, Terry graced us with his presence for a little over a year at BtownBanners where he led our content team. Pulling this to the main board as we all know Terry quite well. Hutch was in a very bad accident last night and is currently in the hospital. More details to come, but please pray for Terry and his family during this time.

    I’ll take a look at everything today and update the site. Unfortunately the redirects are something almost impossible to catch and fix. Hopefully the next update will solve these issues! Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners
