    Of course we aren't. We just got a commitment from a kid who can shoot; don't want too many players who can fill it up.

    Ok, I'll try asking again. Who was the player who tried going to Blackford?

    I knew about Hopf. What does that have to do with Blackford?

    I imagine when Leal arrives on campus and enters the gym for the first time, he'll immediately nail a couple threes. Our current players will gravitate toward him and be like "Wow, you're good. How do you make it go through the hoop like that?"

    Who was the player declared ineligible?

    Big picture? Ok. We're 0-4 against OSU the past two seasons, they've had better teams than us and they figure to be better than us again this year (along with 8-9 other Big Ten teams). That's working out great for us, isn't it?

    It would be a bad look, no matter how anyone would try to spin it. Archie's brother is being investigated by the FBI and still landing five star players. If Archie is supposedly clean and couldn't land a top 100 player in his own backyard, it's a bad look. Especially if that player goes to a place with little basketball history that plays in a terrible conference.

    I've maintained since last year that if Archie can't get this kid, he should probably start updating his resumé.

    Colts / NFL Game Thread

    Luck is either the slowest healer on the planet, has bad doctors, or doesn't do a very good job of following their orders. It's just bizarre how someone as young as him could take so long to recover from injuries.

    Purdue has been doing a lot of things smarter than us in recent years. Not surprising.

    Just wait until Butler and Purdue get involved while we're still offering players who can't shoot. By then, I'm sure the narrative will be that he wouldn't fit into the vaunted pack-line.

    He shoots threes and free throws too well. Might want to knock down those percentages and stop being automatic from the line, then our staff might find him more appealing.

    State of the program

    I've paid less attention to IU basketball news this offseason than any year I can ever remember, if that tells you anything about the state of the program. I'm just not sure how to feel about Archie Miller. I know he had success at Dayton, but the people who keep saying he got them to an Elite 8 are starting to remind me of everyone who kept harping that Crean got Marquette to a Final Four. I'm not a big fan of "system" coaches who suck their first few years because they don't have the players they need to win. I know we had a lot of talent walk out the door after Crean got fired, but I'm sure there are coaches who could have gotten that team to the NIT and not been embarrassed at home by ISU and IPFW. Even worse, I don't think this administration cares about returning to national prominence, and even if they do, they're likely too stupid to do it anyway.

    IU Trustee Election

    We've been saying this for years. It's never going to change. This school just sucks at managing its most profitable athletic programs.

    College Bball Thread

    Indiana basketball is the kid struggling to stay upright on a bike without training wheels while the bluebloods cruise around the block and pop wheelies.
