  1. I think it it was too early to know what type of player he likes. With Creat folks from Marquette came and told us about his love for wings and even over recruiting. With Sampson we got some warnings about his players but it was more along the lines of off court behavior. With Archie, unless you watched multiple teams of his at Dayton then we are all just guessing. All he has told us he plans to recruit the state pretty hard but that does not indicate what type of player. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners
  2. Curious to see what “changes” Archie implements. If those include Romeo’s time then I would love to hear what the Brooks think of that. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    How bad will next season be?

    What do you think he would have done differently had he evaluated the talent differently? Recruited harder? Trained in the off-season harder? Recruiter higher ranked kids? Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app
  4. Pretty sure he called Romeo to IU early and kept it that way. I started following them then. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Is he making Bradley into a great program. We can do better than an IU grad with experience. Hopefully he has done great things at Bradley, if not keep looking. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Anyone know who the great ADs are out there? Not sure we need to let someone learn on the job again. At this size school we should be able to go and find someone who has been killing it at their current school for a reasonable period of time. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    If you make a change, you have to aim higher otherwise you are just hoping you get luck. If you make a change, you need to hire a proven AD who can overhaul the department and our flagship programs. Archie May or may not be the coach we need but before we look at a new B-ball coach we need a proven AD. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    If dominos fall I would think Glass might go while the new AD holds on to Archie a little longer. No reason for that lack of stability unless the new AD has a coach in the back pocket. Then the AD can watch for a year and decide what to do. Perhaps even recruit the next guy quietly during that time. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    Not saying I know anything but if your current prize recruit is struggling to play as hard as you want. Does benching him hurt your chances with other high end recruits? Can you risk that? But then again, if you have lost 10 of 12 or something like that then can you risk not doing it. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Really glad to see Archie’s comments post game but he has to act on them. Fans need to see something different. Not sure who he is speaking of but are we ready if he benches Romeo? Can’t imagine it would be JoMo but what if he were benched. Do we want Archie to take a stand even if it sends a conflicting message to 5 star recruits? I will be glad to see him take a stand but things could get worse before they get better. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    Good thing is most become apathetic instead. Like me we just check in occasionally but tune out mostly. Don’t care. If the team starts winning many will check back in more regularly Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    I agree. After that win at MSU, and a great road win that was, the team struggled every game. Losses to teams we should not have lost to and the wins were unimpressive (remember Temple). It goes way beyond Syracuse but that Syracuse game topped off a terrible month or so of basketball. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    I think there is a rumor out there about Crean asking then asst coach Calbert to teach how his teams used to attack a zone. Cal worked on this then after presenting it to the team Crean made light of it and said basically well we aren’t going to do that. Calbert left after that year I believe. Not sure if true but it is an interesting story Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners
  14. I agree. Today’s Morgan would have been a starter (Crean recruited him ha). Morgan at the beginning of last year may not have been Morgan is a great #2 or #3 guy on a strong team. But he is not a strong #1 guy. But on that team, he would have started or got starter minutes. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app
  15. I agree. Most of this exercise for me in this thread has been cathartic. I was pretty discouraged with what we have on paper after Romeo and JoMo leave but if those 4star guys develop, and buy in to Archie, then next year is not necessarily going to be worse.
