    I recognize you aren’t responding to me here but... Hey, I’ve grown to love your posts and perspective but don’t get this stuff at all. You identified Crean for what he was early on, earlier than most and at his best was a sweet 16 coach. In 9 years, that was his ceiling. Many years after it was obvious to almost everyone he was not the right guy he was fired. The most important part is that he left the program not in a sweet 16 ceiling but in “A SERIOUS REBUIlLD”. That is insane and 100% on Glass. It should never have come to that but he waited and allowed for it to dip to that level again. A “SERIOUS REBUIlLD” is not acceptable. He didn’t inherit that mess, the NAACP cannot be blamed for that, nobody but the one person responsible for the health of IU Basketball can be blamed but Fred Glass. That’s on him. He let that crap happen after 9 years to stoop back to that level again on his watch. Football and his lack of even looking at other options is a whole other can of turds Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    No way for me to know, that’s what a coaching search and many interviews is for. Coaching vacancies are a tough time but also a good thing from time to time to get test the waters and shake some things up. I hear you regarding the divisional alignment, I just don’t think it’s as big of a deal as you do. No coach we hire is going to be expected to come in and go 11-1 and win the BigTen right away but we need to compete with those schools. I don’t think it is unreasonable to expect a bowl every year and have occasional years where we challenge the big 3 for the conference. If you consistently hover around the 7-5 mark each year and you have a seasoned team every 3 or 4 years go up against a young, perhaps down team from the big 3 we should be able to pull off wins here and there. No reason to ever go 0-24 against OSU and no reason to get beat 51-10. We can do better and Glass didn’t even turn over any stones to try Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    A lot of cheap work was done in these renovations. If the goal was to renovate for the sake of checking a box these were successful. If the goal was to build state of the art facilities that set the bar and were built to last, we failed miserably. Drop ceilings have become the not so funny running joke for some but the list is endless when looking at things that were put into these or in some cases not put in that is disappointing Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    It really is. We’ve cheaped out in just about everything we’ve done sans the basketball recruiting budget. If leadership had the same attention to detail and desire to win as the fans we would be in a lot better place. Slapping lipstick on a pig apparently is enough to appease some here Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    That’s almost verbatim what Kentucky fans have said in the past about calipari. It’s laughable, clearly they will go to LSU or anywhere that will pay them. I have no doubt the vast majority of five stars from Kentucky and duke have been paid Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    What most of us are seeing is a question asked by the interviewer with no answer included. That’s what we see in Rays bolder type in his post and then you saying “this” Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Fair enough, I am/was including his first class that included keeping Creans recruits al, Justin and Moore and subconsciously omitted Fitzner from my brain 17’ 0-3, 18’ 1-5, 19’ 1-5, 20’ 0-3 2/17 recruits/scholarships available have gone to transfers/jucos since he has arrived - off the top of my head, could be off by 1 Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Nice to have kids that commit to Indiana university vs the coach, shoe affiliation or god forbid university of Indiana Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    I have been vocal as saying I think one of Archie’s biggest misses has been the juco or grad transfer game. Zero jucos and 1 grad transfer so far in 4 recruiting classes. I’m not suggesting it to be the be all end all but there is a lot to be gained from having experienced players on the roster and a proven pg is huge. I would actually prefer him bringing in a juco or grad transfer vs a freshmen and then going all in on a landers or someone to replace Phinisee Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    I’m going to get eaten alive for this but, they aren’t. They might get minutes at the 1 or 2 but if Phinisee goes down, we’re looking at a backup combo guard running the team. We all saw what happens when you don’t have a true pg running the team and it’s not good. We should always have 2 true point guards on the team, otherwise the entire season rests on the health of 1 guy And to address your post directly, yes, whether it’s a freshmen, juco or grad transfer, I don’t care, it’s a must to have another pg on the team that can play real minutes if Phinisee cannot go for any reason Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app
