    2019 Off-Season IU Roster News and Moves

    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

    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.....
  6. LMAO. Don't forget to tip your waitress!
  7. Have you ever played for a coach by the name of deez?

    Can you imagine the uproar if Alford was to hypothetically bring Arkansas into the hall and beat IU? Chaos!!

    He could be the greatest coach alive but no way he accomplishes anything without the whole team buying into the system he is running
  10. So you think 3 pointers and free throws are on the coach and not more mental or based on the player....i don't. There really isnt any reason to discuss it with you any further because we will never agree on that point
  11. Yep. Completely different coaches. One coach has shooters, the other one not so much.
  12. That's a fine line, honestly...what does it say to future 5 star recruits if he does make him play, especially if he knows that player is gonna go pro. Maybe future recruits would pass on Indiana after seeing that. I'm not saying it would or wouldnt happen, but I could see both sides

    It is effort, but the officiating is complete utter trash.
