  1. Dane Fife also fits the clues above. He would also need vetted because of everything that transpired at MSU while he there. Fife is a solid recruiter and isn’t the next head coach at MSU.

    (2020) SG - Nimari Burnett

    To me it’s Michigan all the way for this kid. He grew up going to Juwan Howard’s basketball camps. His parents are friends with both Juwan and Juwan’s wife. Burnett’s dad in an interview stated that Juwan is family and has been for years. To me it will be difficult for any other team to top that long standing relationship.

    State of the program

    Which is why it’s always important to recruit the state strong. It’s the base of all recruiting, bc you have the advantage of being the home state school. Going out of state is always harder. So getting a solid base from the state allows you to maintain a solid level on a yearly basis. Great job by the staff. I believe results will follow, as we take another step on the court this year.

    Season Predictions 2019-2020

    Overall 23-11, conference 11-9, win one in the BTT, and lose opening NCAA game. Starting: Phinisee, Green, Smith, TJD, DD PPG: It will be a balanced attack. Hot Take #1: Justin Smith is our most improved player. Hot Take #2: Al and Rob both shoot over 40% from 3.

    State of the program

    As recruits and parents read the boards, what purpose does the negativity serve? If you’ve given up on the coaching staff, then I get it. Fans can create a toxic environment around programs that can take a decade to dig out of. Look at Michigan football posts Lloyd Carr. Fans/boosters/alumns didn’t give Rich Rod a chance to succeed. They cut his legs out from the get go and they sucked through Brady Hoke until Harbaugh arrived. Also, one persons realistic take isn’t the same as another’s For IU basketball I said 2 seasons ago that it would be a 3 year process for any coach. Archie wasn’t my first, second, or third choice, but he was on everyone’s list. I’ll give him the same fair shake as i would have any new coach. 3 years to make the dance and if not, that seat will be red hot in year 4. The problem I have with my own reasoning is he is building for long term success with 3-4 year players. That does take time. It took Bennett 5 years at UVA. Archie himself said he wouldn’t fill all scholarships every year when he first arrived to campus. He also said it would take 3 years for his defense to get to its peak. Offensively we miss too many open looks, but we get open looks. So yes year 3 is important, and I along with other actually think IU will be better next year than the last 2 years. We have a NCAA tournament roster and should be there. Hopefully that will make the restless happy. I know people will chime in with look at Chris Beard. I get it, he went the transfer route and it paid off. He is an exceptional coach who will be the next head coach of probably the San Antonio Spurs. So he has a short shelf life as a college coach.
  7. Ostrom is the top recruiter on staff. He took over as lead recruiter for Romeo and then we started to trend for him. He was the lead recruiter for both TJD and Franklin this class. He is a must have on staff imo.
  8. Ostrom and Schilling didn’t get along. Ostrom is Archie’s guy. Schilling not carrying his weight recruiting leads to him being replaced.

    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.

    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.
