    Haha don’t know them at all, never claimed to. Just hoping for good news!

    Keion Brooks Jr - Decision Date (3/15)

    I agree, but an Indiana kid choosing Kentucky, a hated rival from a boarding state...a little different than Johnny from Iowa choosing standford. IMO, whether it is open to the public may be telling.
  3. Looks like he is deciding on Friday 3/15, at 8:00pm. Doing it in Indiana, at St. Paul’s Lutheran School, in Ft. Wayne. Another in decision occurring in state. Takes a lot of guts to choose a rival school in your home state. Maybe he will follow romeos lead...
  4. Talk about a guy showing up to play...Smith kept us in the game the first half, and was locked in from start to finish. And for all of the crap Green gets, the kid was phenomenal in the second half. Also had a chance to catch the locker room celebration, where they mobbed Justin Smith. Now that doesn’t look like a team with chemistry issues! As I’ve always said, I want these kids to succeed at IU, and it was great to see their full potential on display tonight. May end up being too little too late, but this is the type of play that will unite the Hoosier Faithfull. JUST WIN!

    Also...20 seconds left in the game. We burn the entire block to shoot an airball floater with about 7 seconds to go...What in the world?

    Not sure I’ve ever seen anything like that in my life... But, we did this to ourselves. Free throws...Rob has a chance to put us up 4, missed his second that led to a three to tie. That whole fiasco never would of happened.

    Romeo has taken what...3 shots? His involvement is to catch the ball up top, hand it off, and then going to stand in the corner. Don’t really understand it.

    Can someone explain why we continue to front big men in the post. Helpside is never there...can’t watch anymore easy layups.

    This zone is crushing us...a little pressure and all hell break loose.

    These kids look focused here early...interested to see if they can keep this focus. Totally different body language for 2 players discussed in another thread. Like what I am seeing.

    Team Chemistry Issues?

    I may be wrong, but I believe it was because of the poor scores in Creans last 2-3 season...our APR was so low, it couldnt withstand any additional roster turnover that would drive it below the threshold and result in a post season ban.

    Team Chemistry Issues?

    Good question...would also be curious to know how this affects APR.

    Team Chemistry Issues?

    I admit, the video does not look nearly as bad as it did in person. From my seats, it seemed clear it was done in a mocking manner, but we can argue this until the cows come home. The timing was very odd and awkward, and an assistant chased him down the hand shake line and drug him to a seat. I am not bringing this up because Devonte is an easy target as some have said. I am bringing this up because we have serious issues, including team chemistry / player attitude, and this fits that mold. I for one have never bashed him on this site, and truly want him to succeed, because we have seen the flashes of a player that can make a difference. But I am going to call out negative attitude whenever I see it, regardless of who the player is. Now regarding Justin, this is what I pointed out in my initial post. My wife literally only watched him the entire game, and noticed all of the items you point out in your post. His attitude was the worst I have seen in some time.

    Team Chemistry Issues?

    All, had meant to post last night, but fell asleep on the couch....My biggest take away from the game, and what I saw from my seats, was the negative attitude and body language of Green, but specifically Justin. At one point in the first half, he was taken out after a short stint, walked to the bench, didn't give any high fives, tossed a towel back at the manager in disgust and sat and sulked...Other times he was visibly pissed off that he was being subbed out, and not engaged in the game or with his teammates on the bench. At one point, we had a great stretch, in which the bench was cheering and excited, and he sat stone faced. It was so bad, my wife even commented that all she could do was watch him while on the bench... Additionally, there was a stretch where Green tried to do a fancy layup on an alley oop that led to a turnover, and was immediately taken out. He ran to the bench, high fived the whole team and even tried to chest bump Hunter. You could tell it was in a mocking manner. In multiple other instances, he was arguing with the coaches, specifically Bruiser Flint. Those two sat next to each other on the bench, and their body language compared to others, who didn't even get in the game mind you, was glaringly negative.

    College Bball Thread

    One of the worst collapses I’ve ever witnessed. A little pressure, sped them up and they were rattled. No one on that UL team wanted the ball in their hands.
