    Bummer that is the case. I wish they were closer to Indiana and not connected Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    A Transfer Coming?

    Exactly why I don’t think Smith nor Durham will leave, next year is the year they finally get it Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Early BIG Projections (2020-21)

    I mean OSU has performed better than IU in each season since Holtmann arrived. I wouldn’t put it past them to overachieve next year and find a way to play small ball well. I will always root for IU but to dismiss Holtmann moving forward isn’t a good idea Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Curious as to why he wasn’t a gopher all along? Is his uncle new to the staff? Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    What was your first/earliest memory of...

    First IU memory was the 87 championship game and my parents going nuts - I was 5. I fell in love with indiana basketball in 93 when I went to a game with my dad and saw Cheaney, Graham, Bailey, Henderson etc play. I was hooked Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    (2020) SF Jordan Geronimo to Indiana

    That’s kinda the point. More than half of the roster is of players he has recruited and chose to bring in yet the players that get the most run are the guys he inherited and would not recruit if he had the choice... something is wrong there He has had the opportunity to bring in better talent whether it be from freshmen, juco, graduate transfer to take on the lions share of the minutes yet it’s the problem players and players “he got stuck with” that gets all the playing time. There is the truth and that is that he has had a hard time recruiting upgrades and fulfilling needs. Case and point leaving two unfulfilled scholarships when we were in obvious need of shooters I just hate people throwing Creans recruits under the bus and using them as scapegoats for Archie when he utilized them a ton Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Interesting that you don’t think he would have recruited them yet he plays them more than anyone else Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Mike Roberts Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners Edit: no joke, that is the catalyst for my name that I have had for like 15 years across several boards. He was THE worst basketball player I have ever seen step foot on the court for Indiana including walk-ons. The worst and just funny that he is back on the bench where he spent his entire 4 years as a player

    I believe Calbert is the best player in Indiana history Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    (2020) SF Jordan Geronimo to Indiana

    Interesting take. I would have said this kid would thrive in a fast pace offense and a defense that is encouraged to gamble and cause counters like Crean’s teams. Archie is quite the opposite and hope he can do things in spite of the system Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Archie and Progress

    It truly is nice to see you so on board as you were anything but when it came to Crean and for the most part for good reason. What he has cost me and a lot of fans is lack of enjoyment. We have lost 1/3 of all games he’s coached by double digits. It hasn’t been 1 season or 2 but all 3 seasons. there is something majorly wrong there for his team to not get off the bus or out of their dorm room 1/3 of the time. I had plans as I usually do to travel to Champagne, Ann Arbor, West Lafayette, Bloomington etc to see them play and after doing so the last 2 years and getting massacred each time I said to hell with it. It’s one thing to go down with a fight and it is another to lay down and die and that has been an on-going theme since he stepped foot in Bloomington Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    I disagree. The OP posted stats on progress so only natural to agree where one sees it and point out where there hasn’t been enough Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Archie and Progress

    That’s part of what bothers me the most is that after 3 years there is still no semblance of an offensive identity. We aren’t great in the half court and we don’t push the tempo. Our defense, while not terrible isn’t one that causes tons of turnovers that allows for us to change pace and counter. I just don’t know what we are trying to do? What does a well oiled Archie offense look like? Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app
