    Creaning is over-signing and forcing a kid out. This isn’t that.

    If, nobody leaves early for the pros or transfers out.

    Not concerned about his numbers vs grown men in a pro league, when he could be playing high school. If Archie wants him, and we have open scholarships, you take him.

    Whatever the issue, it seems to be fixed now.

    2019 Off-Season IU Roster News and Moves

    I think we have shown evidence of being a top Big Ten program. I think people are ignoring the good, because we don’t have Jordan Hulls or Christian Watford type shooters on the team. I’ve said before that all college rosters yearly are projections because of the youth and development of players vary. But we have stacked back to back classes with very good multi year players. People need to stop looking at who was missed and look at who is coming or here already. IU is in a good spot. No national expectations, but a roster that is top half of the Big Ten quality. For the first time in years we have Big Ten size. We have guys who are good shooter, just not great ones, in Green, Phinisee, Durham, Hunter, and Anderson. If people wanted top 10 by year 3, then we needed to hire a guy like Pitino or Calipari, skirt the rules, and recruit only one and done players. We will be a top 10 team in 2 years imo.

    2019 Off-Season IU Roster News and Moves

    It’s beyond crazy. I’ve wondered if some of the people so negative are actually fans of other programs. Or if they are relatives of Tom Crean. The total irrational sky is falling mentality is very odd.

    I watched Boyd play one time in high school. He was playing at Vincennes Rivet, and nobody on that team was close to his level.

    Is this kid a taller Brody Boyd?
  11. Is this the kid that Purdue leads for?

    While I agree with the premise of your statement. The reality is, it’s hasn't been level playing field in decades. Look at UCLA 60 years ago. To me it’s about leveling the playing field as much as you can within your own house. Get the compliance office to help find the loopholes. See Romeo’s dad getting paid by Adidas. Purely within the rules. See Jim Harbaugh taking his team to Rome, Paris, now South Africa on the dime of a single donor. NCAA can’t say crap bc it’s educational. All kinds of ways to stay within the rules and make IU basketball on more equal footing. Look at Vanderbilt. They are hiring all kinds of support staff, like football programs. They even have a head coaching consultant (or something close to it). IU isn’t spending like that. We are still steps behind others in things that are legal.

    2019 Coaching Carousel

    I hope he does well. I was 10 when the Fab 5 arrived at Michigan. I loved watching them play, and only rooted against them when IU played them. I’m also interested bc Michigan is a top 10 program and they went a route that IU refused to go. They hired a former play who was only an assistant to lead their program. IU bypassed Dane Fife.
  14. Looks like it will be Juwan Howard.

    (2019) SF Trendon Watford to LSU

    The NCAA answers to the university presidents. The presidents dont care about rules for basketball and football. What they care about is making money. See Big Ten having a revenue of $759 million. As long as the money train is rolling, and your compliance office is on the same page, almost anything is legal. Frankly there is a lot of ways that you can do things, perceived dirty by fans, but perfectly legal by NCAA standards.
