  1. That could be. I was going from memory mainly on the idea that IU was predicated to be the better team before the 2017-18 season. So I looked and found a few others who felt the same. http://btn.com/2017/10/04/dienhart-my-2017-18-big-ten-mens-basketball-predictions/amp/ Then this one showed OSU was not looking strong again this year but did better than expected https://www.ncaa.com/news/basketball-men/article/2018-10-11/big-ten-basketball-andy-katzs-predictions-and-power-rankings?amp Preseason predictions are not the end all but the discussion about OSU clearly being in a better spot to win early in Holtmann’s career was not necessarily the case. In fact, it seems IU has been picked to finish higher both years but have not. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app
  2. I think Hova had a good point on this. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app
  3. Yeah but as a top 25 kid I think they expected more. Looked it up and he was averaging under 10 pts a game before his injury. Not a bust by any means but I don’t think he was a sure fire stud going into his 2nd Jr year. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app
  4. I am probably misremembering but I thought Diop had been a bit of a disappointment early in his career and that before the season began IU was the better situation. You never really know till the kids start playing but I am fairly confident that OSU exceeded preseason expectations. Looking back it seemed to have been better but not during the summer. Whereas we had several players who had a lot of experience. Not sure who is better but right now Holtman is in a better spot. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app
  5. I agree. I do think it is fair to suggest that the mid season swoon seems to have stalled that year 1 momentum. I have more confidence that Archie can coach better than Crean and it might be that we have to build a winner before we start to hit with kids like we did in year 1.

    Momentum needed. Would be a good pick up and could be a good multi year player Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Joey Brunk to Indiana

    It is I agree but we still need some difference makers. We have guys on the roster that can be that if they stay healthy and buy in. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    2019 Off-Season IU Roster News and Moves

    I am more worried they stay but wish they had left. We need kids to stay around and get better in the off-season. Something we really haven’t seen much of yet. So if they stay, hopefully they buy in and work. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Interesting. I wonder what % of available players that is and then I wonder how that compares to non athletes and their transfers from one school to another. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app
  12. I also almost have enough information to say Harris and Watford to Indiana. Almost (just waiting to hear Harris and Watford to announce) then I will have enough info. Right now that is the only thing I am waiting on so I almost know Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Joey Brunk to Indiana

    Hey I like this pick up but we had 2 bigs just leave the program 2 weeks ago. And if Juwan was not a big how is Race a big. Now, it is perfectly fine to be happy trading 2 guys who were far down the bench for Brunk who could be a great pick up. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app
  14. It is fair to say we haven’t landed anyone since we had that horrible losing streak. Brooks was the most likely one that could have committed and some insiders have strongly indicated that our losing streak opened the door for him to go elsewhere. Since then we seemingly have stalled. Can Archie and staff explain it away and pull on some top talent? Hopefully but so far it seems we have missed on a small handful of kids. Hopefully we got here soon, but until then it is fair to wonder. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app
