    Sadly I don’t think he is qualified anymore. He’s a shell of what he used to be Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    I didn’t comment on this but curious what you would call it? I live in Chicago and see just as many IU games at welsh Ryan as I do at assembly hall and in terms of “nice” welsh Ryan is much nicer. It may not have the history and noise factor etc but it is very nice. The fans there don’t deserve it Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    YEP! Any rebuild that far into a coach and ADs tenure needs to be explained/there needs to be accountability and Glass takes no responsibility for where the basketball program is at. It’s absolutely on him and nobody holds him to the fire for that in the media Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Why do people keep suggesting it’s slim pickings this late in the year as if a coach couldn’t leave another program? March, July, December... why does it matter? Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    Same. Sadly, even though I love IU, a Stanford degree is pretty powerful Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Especially since we are and could moving forward have one or more open scholarships Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    I think I agree with you and if you feel differently it’s because I didn’t state my stance clearly. My stance is that we should offer him. Worst comes to worst he ends up being our 12th best player. So what? He seems worth the risk even with a coach that has 15 scholarships accepted let alone one that only has 11. Why not is my opinion Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    I think we are in agreement in theory but I don’t see you actually allotting for said contingencies. You outlined 8 players that could/should be in rotation however that assumes hunter plays at all which is completely up in the air and that non of the other 7 get hurt which will no doubt happen. That seven could quickly become 5 with little to no depth. I know it sounds negative to think that way but it is just a reality that players get hurt and hunter is a wildcard. That hypothetical 5 also includes a guy that sat out half of last season with a torn Achilles. I just don’t see the advantage of saving 2 scholarships unless we just cannot get anyone better than a walk on quality player and if that is the case we are in deep **** Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    That’s fair but I think about it this way. There will always be injuries and there will always be misses. I think it best to have 10 legit, healthy players for depth, insurance and also building. If you only have 11 to start with that leaves very little room for any of those aforementioned things. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    100% agree. This seems to be the type of kid that you use that 12th or 13th scholarship on. I said something similar before and was essentially told by others here that if we treated him like the 12th or 13th scholarship he wouldn’t come. The point is more that if we would normally leave a scholarship or two open, this is the type of kid that is worth taking a chance on and using one of those. If he panned out, great, we got a hard working in-state contributor. If not, so what, it was going to go unused and now e have a hard working gym rat practice player Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    If there was we wouldn’t be arguing about dumb ****. Hope he commits soon so we can build accordingly. It has to make it easier for coaches when they have an early commit or two Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app
