    What’s funny is if we end up somewhere in the middle that’s exactly where most everyone before the year began said they would be happy with. I think we ended up being who most everyone thought. Good enough to make the tournament, but fatally flawed to do anything of significance. Pretty much your typical 8, 9, or 10 seed.

    I think after the Northwestern game Archie was heard yelling in the locker room that if you want to transfer then freaking transfer. I will sign your papers to whatever school you want. I'm guessing he was talking to Justin. Still doesn't make sense why he has played or started every game since.

    Just so you know Smith is playing the position he wants the 3, he would like to play the 2 some. This was the compromise the staff made with him this summer as he was unhappy and difficult last season because he had to play the 4. Now after getting what he wants, he's still causing problems on the court, in the locker room.

    I strongly disagree that Smith has reason to be frustrated about not being able to post up or drive or shoot.
    Have you watched him try to post up? he does so 2-3 times a game and tries a turnaround hook shot which usually ends up a foot short. Or he gets blocked. He is the weakest finisher on the team.
    Have you watched him try to drive the last three years? It usually ends in a charge, a travel, or a blocked shot. The clogged lane issue was not there last year or the year before. 
    And he is limited on the shots he can take? You want Justin Smith to have the green light from the perimeter? No way. Pile on Archie all you want but what you described just isn't the Justin Smith I have watched the last few years.

    I do agree with what Jerrod Odle said that they had a cancer on the 2001 team and when he left it was much better. I think this year is better without, Romeo but I think it could be better for sure.
    I'm the biggest Archie supporter on here and I think this is his fault for not pushing people out or just not playing them, let alone starting them every game.

    MemphisHoosier reacted to Class of '66 Old Fart in (2021) PG Carter Whitt   
    Corey Evans  on the top '21 candidates to potentially re-class.  IU targets Whitt and Lander both on his list.  
    WHITT
    On the fence on reclassifying, the indecisiveness hasn’t stopped Whitt from investigating his various college options in recent weeks. The four-star junior has been one of the more productive Tar Heel State ballplayers in recent memory, which is why NC State invested so much into his early recruitment.
    The Wolfpack remain heavily involved, but his commitment will not come easy. Whitt took an official visit to Boston College in the fall and, just last week, visited both Indiana and Nebraska. He will head to Virginia Tech this weekend and could check out Ohio State before the season wraps up. Marquette, Notre Dame and Wake Forest are also involved. Whitt won’t make a reclassification decision until the spring, at the earliest, and a college commitment should be expected around the same time.
     
    LANDER
    Arguably the quickest player in the game, there is no question Lander’s speed will translate to the next level. The question is when that next step will be taken. Talk surrounding him possibly reclassifying picked up earlier this winter and could further in the coming weeks but the percentages remain in Lander sticking with his original class.
    There still is a chance that he makes the move into the 2020 class with his top three potential landing spots being Indiana, Louisville and Michigan. Lander took official visits to all three programs in the fall and while Indiana had garnered most of the talk at one point, Louisville might sit in the best spot right now.

    That’s optimism at its finest. Wisconsin seems to be the team that loves blowing us out the most. We have suffered some real whoopin’s at the hands of the Badgers. If we keep it within 20, that’s probably a win.

    IU will hire former MSU defensive line coach Ron Burton to replace Mark Hagen, according to a source.
    Burton was a d-line coach at Michigan State from 2013 until this move to IU. He's got an impressive resume. Spartans had the best rush defenses in the Big Ten in 2013, '14, '17, and '18.

    I hate to say it but IMO Troy shot it much better. Troy also hustled a little more. Gave better effort and didn't have near as many excuses as Justin has. Always someone else's fault

    You can't use someone who believes their game is something it's not. I know for sure Archie tried this year to compromise some with him to play some outside but also be the slasher and inside scorer. Justin and his family have it in their mind that he is a ball-handler and spot-up shooter. He is one of the only players who went home this summer instead of staying here to work on his game. We should have let him go last year.

    Who can we hire that will bring in a monster 2021 class?
     
    When Archie got Schilling, I thought that was evidence we would play the game the way UCLA did with Alford. Then we get Langford and the ball is rolling. Now he’s not here. Why? No one really knows. It was always a mystery. Was it the Brooks recruitment?
     
    Ostrom has been involved in recruiting Monster classes at places. Now he can’t recruit. We settle for middle talent.
     
    Is it administration? Is it Archie? Is it by design?
     
    So many questions. Archie isn’t answering any of them.

    Did anyone else catch Buckner and Wittman’s interview during the second half? At one point I think it was Buckner who emphasized that this was a players thing today. Not the school.

    I realize the players are a big part of why he came back but that comment seemed intentional by Buckner.

    Not for this reason alone but it just reminds me that we have some real problems above Archie. I have no confidence they can make a good hire.
