    I believe so. There’ll be plenty of coaches who think they’ll get the most out of him. That’s one that I haven’t seen many people blame a coach for not developing. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    FBI Corruption Investigation

    What’s sad is the mountains of evidence the sport is an absolute cesspool but the NCAA throws a couple mil at big names to form a commission to give them ideas that are total BS. The NCAA doesn’t want it cleaned up they want it to go away. The sport at this level will be this way until programs that are cleaner than others decide that they’re through playing on such an uneven field. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    FBI Corruption Investigation

    I’ve said it for awhile but I’ll keep screaming it from the hill tops. The NCAA has a pretty good idea of what kind of things are going on in THEIR organization and couldn’t give a damn because it makes them rich. With all the evidence out there, they’re hoping this moves at a snails pace so in a few years this will all blow over. This tactic has been used effectively by most of the biggest cheaters and scum in the game. THIS is the new era of college hoops and as long as the NCAA makes their millions from it they’ll keep looking the other way, and absolute idiots, in hopes they survive. Why would a governing body enforce rules to the programs that make them the most profit? Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners

    2019 Off-Season IU Roster News and Moves

    I’m still not sure what the condition is/was but it’s good to see him lifting heavy. When I first took blood thinners they wouldn’t allow me to lift for fear of bruising. Times and medicines have changed but that appears to be a good sign. Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners

    Joey Brunk to Indiana

    Exactly where I’m at with the stats. Although, I have a feeling we’ll see some of Jackson-Davis at the 5 too. If Davis is healthy AND conditioned (limiting his fatigued fouls) he could easily be a double figure scorer. Getting a double double from the 5 spot with great defense will be key. If Davis is conditioned we could also see him average a couple assists per game which would be huge. Our shooting percentage would be much higher if Davis forces opponents to double him. I have a bad feeling the staff is going to try and force a square peg in a round hole with Jackson-Davis playing the 4. I don’t think he’s quick enough to defend most Big Ten 4s nor has the perimeter game, yet(!), to keep teams honest. Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners mobile app

    Joey Brunk to Indiana

    If Brunk and Davis can both average about 8 ppg at around 20 minutes each game with good rebounding and great defense we’ll be in a better place. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    Joey Brunk to Indiana

    I find it difficult to see a lineup with Davis/Brunk and Jackson-Davis starting unless Jackson-Davis has a solid midrange game or develops more on the perimeter quickly. What did Smith show anyone that makes them think he’d play the 3? He’s an undersized post/slasher. If Jackson-Davis and Davis/Brunk are on the floor at the same time we need three shooters on the floor for spacing. If Hunter is cleared and is as good as some have said he’s starting. Phin will start. I’d like to see Green be the first guard off the bench for Al or Phin with the other being the primary ball handler unless Green improves the, very correctable, decision making that lead to bad turnovers.

    The frustrating part is the 1 of 5 passes that wasn’t a turnover gave him confidence it would work. He then went on to try it 5 more times for it to only work once. This is something really small that can make a huge difference. Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners mobile app

    Some kid pickup for a grad transfer that will be here two years AND help with experience and culture. I don’t expect him to replace JMo but I expect him to help focus the team. Welcome Joey! Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    The cameo someone got from CWat had me thinking. What if 5,000 IU fans ordered cameos from CWat for little bros commitment. Would that violate any NCAA rules? It’s technically paying for a service. However, I could see the NCAA hammering us if we admitted CWat played at IU and we paid for them. Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners

  18. I think 8ish years ago when Izzo made mention of only 20% of the top 20 players being clean has moved to only 20% of the top 150 players being clean. Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners mobile app

    2019 Off-Season IU Roster News and Moves

    I can see both sides of this. My personal opinion are kids run from adversity too often but that’s not limited to only kids. If I were advising recruits I’d tell them to make sure they’re dead set on their choice of school. However, far too often it’s not the kid making the choice for themselves. I believe that’s a big reason we see so many transfers. Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners mobile app

    This one cracks me up. I’d venture to guess 1 out of a lot transfer for academic reasons. I believe you could transfer for a grad degree if your current school offered that degree but different courses. I’d also venture to guess that most of these kids are simply looking for greener pastures the easiest and fastest way possible. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app
  21. In this instance I don’t think it was the determining factor but I wouldn’t be shocked if he got a little something for his commitment. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    I believe if a family member of a recruit is hired by the program it has to be at the assistant level or higher (head coach) to reduce the possibility of paying a recruits family member for their commitment. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    The Masters Thread

    I didn’t really see a lot fold like cheap shirts. DJ, Schauffele, and Koepka all had really good final rounds. Tiger’s strategy of just hanging around and hitting a couple of key shots down the stretch paid off. Mollinari collapsed on the back with two double bogeys though. Tiger is playing well. If he runs away with another major I’ll be a bit more confident he could get to 19. 4 majors in the next 2-3 years would be ridiculous though. That’s winning like 33% of the majors. I just can’t see it happening right now. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app
