    State of the program

    We should, if injuries arent as bad as last year and I agree with a previous statement. I think Miller has to make the tournament this year as well

    Memphis vs Indiana

    Very possible. I put them at a 5 because of the youth as a whole. Yes, the conference is weaker, I just think/hope they will lose some that they shouldnt

    Memphis vs Indiana

    Memphis at a 5 seed, Indiana as a 10. Just a guess. I honestly dont know what kind of coach penny will be, but that is a whole lot of talent going to that team. It doesn't mean they will have team chemistry though

    (2020) PG - Hassan Diarra

    I would consider myself in the archie backing camp, and I agree with a lot of what you are saying on this. Juwan Howard is probably going to get a lot of top 100 recruits. So will penny. As calipari will continue to. Yes the honeymoon for Archie may well be over until IU becomes a consistent winner again. I just believe that addition by subtraction will work for this IU team this year. I believe that archie miller can coach better than penny or Juwan. It really does come to that. This past IU team was honestly one of the worst shooting teams that I have ever seen, also with the worst possible chemistry. I dont believe that this team gelled at all. It might have been leadership issues, shooting woes, Romeo sleeping with everyone's girl, etc. etc. Everybody can say whatever, it doesn't really matter. You either believe that Miller will right this ship, or you dont

    Its still really helpful on the riff repeater but I have found that it seems to be a little off on the timing of the songs. Great game, great idea though.

    Also I didnt really say that anything had to be mutually exclusive...even though it sounded that way. Maybe archie does need to teach more offense, and less defense. I cant really argue that at this point. I just saw how good this team could actually be if shooters can consistently hit open shots. It gives me hope for this coach and system

    Yes Archie can push. I'm not in his gym during his practices so I cant say one way or another. I have to assume that he does.

    Do you think crean made oladipo the player that he is today or do you think Victor was completely addicted to the gym and his craft? Crean had some to do with it im sure but the best way to be a shooter is to put up shots. I realize archies trends of bad shooting teams...but maybe he is emphasizing defense constantly, not a bad thing in my opinion

    2019 Off-Season IU Roster News and Moves

    I just dont believe that this team was motivated to play anyone...you had players that moped when they wouldnt get the ball, other players that just stood around on the wing, waiting to get the ball when they had a true ability to take over a game. But the biggest issue by far was the inability to hit outside shots. You just cannot be a one dimensional team and try to be finishers when the other team knew exactly what you were gonna do, because you could do nothing else. The blueprint was set after IU's second game in the BIG. Coaches knew that they couldn't shoot, and they did exactly what the tape showed to turn IU into a one dimensional team. You cannot spread out the floor effectively if you cannot shoot. Period. You saw what the offense could do when they were making shots.

    After the 12 game stretch, there was quite a bit of positive momentum. No, they did not make the tournament, and came out really flat against wichita st but they also beat some really good teams in the next set of games after that stretch. There is no substitute for a strong work ethic. I feel as though quite a few players did not have that, and with the injuries that they had, I'm suprised that they were able to beat the teams that they did. This was one of the poorest shooting teams that I can remember at IU, hands down. Virginia just showed what the ceiling is for a team that can defend and shoot. This next year's team needs improvement in shooting in the worst way, and I believe that they will get that. Archie is the guy, we need patience.....
