  1. Getting ugly won't be nearly as bad as losing interest altogether. That, in my opinion, is more likely if mediocre seasons continue.
  2. That comment was the most troubling for me. CAM didn't have adequate options to use the bench the way he probably wanted to. A coach cannot "stick" with a player who is not getting it done and still expect to win games.
  3. Count me in on the cranky old guy category. If I were the former coach I'm not sure I would welcome him back for his announcement. Now maybe there are circumstances I don't know but actions have consequences.

    I'd like to say that I don't know, but I guess the obvious answer is that the staff thinks he is better.

    Isn't everyone recruited over to some extent. I never understood this complaint/excuse. What coach is not constantly trying to improve the team. It's the player's responsibility to defend their position on the team. If a player truly thinks he is that good, he shouldn't fear competition.

    Wait.....basketball players are being 'familiar' with girls....during the season? When did this start?

    At the risk of being politically incorrect or insensitive, this thread is getting rather hormonal.

    If shooting is not significantly improved, next year will look more like this year than anyone wants to see.

    I try really hard to not worry about things that I have no control over. IU basketball fits neatly into that category.

    Like it or not, big time college basketball puts kids in the public spotlight. For better or worse, their life and those around them is open to scrutiny. I personally don't like it, but that's the world we live in. It's also the reason I want the best possible outcome for the kids, no matter where they choose to play.

    Who's to say we didn't. I'm sure the staff sees tons of kids that they like but who are not priorities for one reason or another. The fact that there is interest now tells me they were well aware of his skill set.

    No couch will be safe!
  13. I didn't think it was possible for this year's team to shoot as bad as last year. Guess I was wrong.
  14. It's the old "don't hate the player, hate the game."
  15. Appreciate everything about Langford and what he has done here. If Hunter had been able to play and had been as good as advertised, I believe Romeo would have had a much better year. Sometimes things just don't work out the way one hopes they will.
