  1. So you begin a topic saying "I honestly don't know." Then when somebody tells you their opinion you say they are wrong and "I don't think that is an Archie Miller Player at all" Then proceed to say you aren't looking for speculation? So the ONLY person that could answer your initial question is Archie himself... so assuming you don't believe he posts on this board what was the point? Were you just bringing it up as another way to take shots and say he is a bad hire? Just like Crean? Not the guy? I am generally curious... when I saw your first post, I thought to myself now this could be an interesting topic of discussion (which is why I moved it from the Brooks Recruiting thread and gave it it's own space).... but now it appears it was just that same thing you have said in every other thread, just trying to find a new way to say it at least?
  2. How does this work? Each week I will create Prediction League threads for the weeks game(s). It's a simple concept: Each week you start with 100 points (only if a prediction is made, otherwise 0 points for the week) +25 PTs if you guess the winner -25 PTs if you pick the loser +10 PTs if guess IU score correctly +10 PTs if guess Opponent score correct -The # of points different between the actual and predicted score of IU (over/under doesn't matter) -The # of points different between the actual and predicted score of opponent (over/under doesn't matter) *** Reminder if you post a prediction and want to change it, please just POST a NEW Prediction, do not edit a prior post as I may miss those edits. The person with the most points (MINUS 2 LOWEST GAMES) at the end of the season wins.

    Prediction League (Game 26 - Purdue 2/19/19)

    IDK and I honestly don't expect any... but those were his words after the game so.... Start Davis, Morgan, Durham, Green, & Race (to go big) or Phinisee (to go 3 guard small).... Will never happen. If opening shot of the game is a 3... sit that person down.. if somebody complains or looks dejected sit them... at some point they will all be too worried about making a mistake to even play anyway so this is obviously not the answer... I am actually curious to see what his definition of drastic changes means?

    No No No... Why would you want the recruit at all costs like you keep saying... that is not IU... and I for 1 sure as heck hope it is NEVER who we are.... we do not need to cheat to win. I don't care what the others are perceived or proven to do.... I don't want that for my IU. Also if you think we have any chance of improving by losing 7 or 8 players then I don't know what to say... if we have that much roster turnover then we are really in the SERIOUS rebuild that Glass mentioned.

    Goodness... Sparty is bad, but if we end up losing him to UK this place is going to go nutzo....
  11. For me it is 1.) Justin Smith.... I try to give him credit when he makes a drive or a dunk but pretty much everything else he does drives me crazy. 2.) Romeo.... I am sure I will get slammed for saying that since he is Mr Basketball, Top mock draft lotto pick, etc... but I yell at him (on TV) the 2nd most of anybody on this team... He gets his points quietly and we would for sure be worse without him this year... but he is also very costly in my opinion... his turnovers are bad... very bad, his basketball IQ was once considered a strength but I don't see it being very good. He doesn't know where to go with the ball, he doesn't move without the ball, and he has hero mentality. If we are down and making a comeback, we get it to down 3 I bet there is a 99% chance he is shooting a 3 the next time down the floor. Sometimes they fall but more often they don't and they end the momentum we had up to that point in the comeback. He fumbles easy passes, he doesn't make crisp passes and telegraphs where every pass is going before he passes it.... I think he is uber talented and will eventually be a great NBA player even, but he needs work.... and I would not blame him nor be upset if he gets that work while making millions.
  12. Justin Smith... and it really isn't close.... I like Devonte MUCH more than most... I do yell at him from time to time but he seems like a net-positive to me. Fitzner is what he is and doesn't see the floor as often so he doesn't usually catch my ire! LOL

    I don't think there is any chance Romeo is back next season. And honestly I wish him well but unless a drastic change I don't know that I would want him back. I am sure I will get slammed for saying that since he is Mr Basketball, Top mock draft lotto pick, etc... but I yell at him (on TV) the 2nd most of anybody on this team... He gets his points quietly and we would for sure be worse without him this year... but he is also very costly in my opinion... his turnovers are bad... very bad, his basketball IQ was once considered a strength but I don't see it being very good.
