    2020 General Recruiting Thread

    oh my, I hope we did not accidentally stumble upon a flaw in the process. that would be hilarious in such a very bad way. watch next year's offers make it only halfway through the list again, this time coming from the bottom of the list alphabetically to the top, in an obvious attempt to disguise another half-@$$ effort. too funny.

    2020 General Recruiting Thread

    Is it just a fluke that this alphabetical list only goes to the letter 'M' and then stops, or is it possible this may only be half of the list?

    (2018) SF - Jerome Hunter to IU

    That would be such a disappointment. On the prayer list for sure. Thanks. Appreciate the info. It has been a long wait to see him show what he's got in an IU jersey, and it seems from what I have heard, he could be the kind of guy who could almost immediately jump in, and possibly even win a starting job. Hoping and praying for the best for him, and for IU. Would love to finally hear some good news.

    (2018) SF - Jerome Hunter to IU

    At this point Hunter will surprise me if he ever plays. Do we know yet if he is even going to be allowed to play? The Jerome Hunter story is possibly the worst of all of the bad IU basketball news stories of last year imo.

    So some concerns I’m having...

    Nice one. Why do parents do that?

    So some concerns I’m having...

    Yes, I started to mention that in my reply, but stopped myself because I did not want the reply to get lost down a wormhole or two. I suspect those run-and-gun Iowa teams may have suffered the same fate as our run-and-gun IU teams down the stretch but have not looked to confirm or deny that. Edit: Upon review they seem to be streaky down the stretch year-in and year-out for the most part, but no solid trend of fading every year the way IU's Crean teams faded, so so much for my suspicions.

    Maybe you are right, but I want to remind you that the 2015-2016 Iowa team was ranked 4th and 16th the two times we beat them that year. I only watch Iowa when IU plays them, so I am anything but an expert on that program lol.

    So some concerns I’m having...

    I hope this doesn't come off as busting your b*lls because that is not what I am trying to do here. I just remember Crean owning Iowa. He was 7-3 against Iowa in his last 10 games against them. IU ran like AAU ball against Iowa, and usually came away turning the ball over just a few times less than Iowa, and winning against them most of the time as the result. I see your point though about the problems against zone defenses, but if you think back and remember, there wasn't a lot of half court offense by either team in those games. I only say that for the sake of conversation, not to one-up you or anything.

    IU at Minnesota 2/16/19 2pm ESPN2

    Don't you hate it when IU sucks so bad you start watching Purdue because you like the way they play basketball?

    IU vs IOWA 02/07/19 GAME THREAD!

    Awesome! Thanks for the opportunity to troll the entire board. I owe you an assist. No way this OSU game ends on time. Possible OT too.

    The one that got away ...

    '75 for all of the reasons stated above, and on top of all of that the loss was a 2 point loss to Kentucky.

    That sounds suggestive. Where's Cody when you need him?

    Focused and tough, on the road too tonight. Maybe growing up a little this week. Maybe learning some big life lessons. Maybe keep going tough, smart, and strong for two more months or however much more time we get to play this season.

    Ha! State gave away the game they played before the IU game like they do every year to prepare like crunchtime for us and we stole one there at the Breslin this time. What a relief.

    I am so glad to see the timeouts inside of 4 minutes, the two-for-ones, the knowing what to do

    IUBB @ MSU- Game Thread

    2013-14 was the last time they won the game before they played IU. They beat Illinois at the Breslin that year, and Illinois wasn't very good relatively speaking. They practice for us at the expense of the game before us. They take a mulligan the game before IU. Remember what they did to us last year we played them at the Breslin one game after they lost one?

    Style over substance

    I googled it because I wanted to know the exact word used since yours was censored, and this came up near the top of the queue. It doesn't mean you can't continue to use it. I intend to add it to my repertoire now that I have heard it for the first time. It's a good one. In fact I think I am going to begin using it every time in conversation a children's tv show comes up. https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/that-oughta-hold-the-little-bastards/

    RIP - Terry Hutchens - 1958-2018

    Yes, I noticed that too. Eerie.
  23. chicagoHOOSIER


    My recollection may be tainted a little by the family ties. The way I remember it he carried that team during their run. He was a very good high school basketball player. Knight liked him a lot. And IU fans liked him sort of the way IU fans liked Errick Suhr when he played, but I think IU fans liked Dakich a little more in his day. It's not as if there is no good reason to like him. I understand some people don't. I am not signing off on everything he does. I just like Dakich.

    Prayer Thread

    Try to keep your relationship with God close in your tough times. He seems to really cherish and reward that. Praying for you and your family now too, especially for the little one.
