    Season Predictions 2019-2020

    I just think this is the best team Holtmann has had to date at OSU and he has proven he can get it done. He won't have to rely on any of the talented freshman to take on heavy minutes and produce right away because of the talent and experience he has coming back. I will be surprised if they stay healthy and don't compete for a top three spot. But that is why they play the games. So like you said, we will see.

    Season Predictions 2019-2020

    https://www.insidethehall.com/2019/08/14/big-ten-power-rankings-offseason-edition-v-2/ I don't have much argument with this list. After looking it over, there is so much uncertainty with each team that it is difficult to project the league as a whole other than Michigan State and probably Ohio State. Maryland is talented, but then again Mark Turgeon is the coach. After that there are a bunch of teams with potential but a lot of unproven pieces. It will be an interesting big ten season for sure, I just hope IU outplays their projections/expectations for once. IU is 8th on this list btw.

    (2020) SG Trey Galloway To IU

    Yeah I don't think Leal and Galloway are diamonds in the rough. As Stuhoo said, look at their offer list. Very prominent programs are after these kids. I feel pretty good that Leal, Galloway, and Cross are big ten contributors and am not worried about them. I only worry that there doesn't seem to be a great chance we will land a point guard in this class and that would be two classes in a row without a point guard. I know Lander is 2021, but that is nowhere near a certainty. Still in a wait and see with Archie, love his organization overall and what he is trying to do. Just have to see on the court success or none of this matters.

    2019 Off-Season IU Roster News and Moves

    Yeah but they usually only give waivers for a 6th year when it is due to injuries. Not typically the case when a player merely transfers. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    I could be wrong, probably am. But don’t you only get 5 years to play 4? Absent a waiver from the NCAA to get a 6th. For uthoff he sat out first year at UW. Then sat out a second year at IOWA. That only leaves 3 years left to play. If he played a 4th year at IOWA it would have been 6 years to play 4. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Yes. I am so glad this is catching on. The bill of rights is not a bad thing, people, including the media, just have misrepresented it on numerous occasions and haven’t actually read it. Regardless of your feelings with the administration, the bill of rights does not hinder Archie. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app
  8. Show me where someone blamed this year on Bawa Muniru and Jeremiah April? I guess I must have missed it. And no I said I had not seen anyone blame the losing streak on Tom Crean. Which I still have not.
  9. nobody has said that they do have anything to do with Archie. Nobody. His argument was that it was okay to have those types of players on the bench because the end of the bench does not matter. Plus it helps bring in Oladipo and Aunonoby, somehow. My opinion is that the end of the bench does matter.
  10. Thank you. Glad I have your permission to continue to obsess over Tommy Crean.
  11. I haven't seen anyone blame Crean for the losing streak this year. Most people in this thread have been critical of Archie. Some saying it is still a wait and see process while others being less optimistic. Each view is fine considering what happened this year. But the whole argument that it is okay to bring in guys like Priller, April, and Bawa among others is a stretch in my opinion. Especially since bringing in those guys has absolutely nothing to do with bringing in Oladipo and Aunonoby as those two were actually recruited by other high majors. You have to have players on your bench who have a chance to develop later on. A lot of the players Crean brought in had no shot to develop so they transferred. Thats not good for a program. Just look at the players on the end of Purdue's bench last year, Aaron Wheeler and Sasha Stefanovic. They sat out last year and developed and now are providing quality minutes to a team in the elite 8. To say the end of the bench does not matter is incorrect in my opinion.
  12. yes but in typical Crean fashion they lost to IPFW in that same month. And then later lost a terrible Nebraska team at home followed by a home loss to a mediocre Wisconsin team. All before OG went down. If OG had not been injured that team probably squeaks into the tournament, but it still would not have mattered. The program was going nowhere. As for the current coach, those players on the end of the bench have a chance to develop unlike the end of Crean's bench because there was either no talent at all or they were creaned. The jury is still out on whether that development happens, obviously.

    Mike Anderson Out at Arkansas after 8 years per Jeff Goodman. Interesting to see what their roster looks like for next year as they come to Bloomington in November.
  15. Seems like there is gonna be a good crowd today according to Twitter. Over 8,000 non student tickets sold with plenty more expected to walk-up. May be the NIT, but it’s still Hoosier basketball! Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners
