    I posted this yesterday but it supports the idea https://www.hoosiersportsreport.com/2014/11/roberts-still-passionate-about-basketball-iu/amp/ Roberts seems like the guy who can help sell kids on how great IU and Bloomington are. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    I wonder how Chris Beard would view that? Perhaps he would jump at a chance to coach IU or maybe he thinks, wow they really turned on Archie fast. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Why do you think he talked with RMK about this. I know he played for him but you sound convinced he has and wondered if there were some dots you are connecting that lead to the conclusion and your inside out comment Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Was it a quote about the program though? Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    State of the program

    I agree. It definitely appeared to me as if our momentum had stalled. It could have just been the appearance of being slow as I don’t know what really goes not but we did seem to miss on top targets. Getting two top targets in a row feels very good. Getting three would feel very good Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Season Predictions 2019-2020

    That was a great summary of things. The improvement was real and as terrible as the losing streak was it was a good reminder that we did not really have the bad losses we had in year 1. I suspect we will have a less impressive record against top 20 teams but hopefully much better results against the middle and bottoms of the BT. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    (2020) SG Anthony Leal to IU

    I tend to agree but he sure would help his cause if we have a good year this year. We don’t need a great year, but a good one with an NCAA appearance would help. If we can start to see the benefit of stockpiling 4 star talent and can believe the future is bright then most will have patience. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    I grew up with Isaiah and was hooked then we had the season on the brink years where things were bleak. Sophomore year at IU was in 87 when all was right in the world. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    2019 Off-Season IU Roster News and Moves

    Whoa big guy, all I said was that I had hoped the pros comment meant higher caliber players than this list. I did not say anything disparaging about either of our players and look forward to having them play well for us for multiple years. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Green seems at HIS best when he has a lot of freedom on what shots to take. I am not sure though if giving him a regular green light is best for US. If we find a way to harness this without turnovers or breaking the offense down then we could be really good with him Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    (2020) SG Anthony Leal to IU

    I think this is a very strong strategy but for a lot of us wanting an NCAA tournament berth or bust next year, this is more of a long strategy. One we should definitely utilize to build a strong core with strong depth. These are 2 very good pickups (if they happen) and gets the momentum moving again (if it had stalled). This might not be as exciting as Brooks, Romeo and TJD but this might be a better group of kids for Archie to use, along with last years kids, to build his team.

    It would be nice if Archie could build a program that is regularly in the hunt for the BT. If he can do that I would hope somewhere down the line we add an assistant or 2 that played here and is passionate about coaching at this level. For now though, hire the best fit and build a winner Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners
