    Banksyrules reacted to LamarCheeks in RIP, Courtney Cox   
    Not the actress ... She played basketball at IU while I was there ... She also played on the women's golf team and in fact, I think she quit basketball to focus on golf. ... We weren't friends, but I got to know her a little because she knew some relatives of mine ... Seemed like a very nice person ... I don't think her basketball career turned out the way she wanted, but at the time, she was a pretty big recruit for IU ... RIP, Courtney -- 48 is way too damn young.

    A Devin Askew announcement likely sometime very SOON. L'ville rumored favorite. If Askew picks Cards, it *could* have ramifications in Khristian Lander's recruitment. Rivals ranks Lander 13th, Askew 9th as top PGs in '21. IU, Michigan and L'ville have upcoming visits scheduled.

    Blau Quote from Jordan Geronimo on why he picked IU: "After my family checked into the Graduate Hotel, we looked up and saw basketball chandeliers. There were old-school bleachers decorating the walls. We were blown away by how deep & rich the basketball history at Indiana was." #iubb   Love this kid!

    And Quinones were to come to IU, you'd be complaining about him not hitting the three well enough in AAU ball.  Your act is so old.

    UNC ruined college basketball for me. Used to watch every game possible but now just stick to watching IU. Sad times.

    The word was to not get too hopeful about this recruitment unless he takes another visit, so very interesting. If CWat can deliver Trendon to IU then give the man whatever job he wants.

    FactOpinion...the worst losses in IU basketball history have Archie Miller's name next to them.
    FactOpinion...we had more talent than teams that were beating us.
    FactOpinion...teams with more underclassmen than us were beating us, negating that fact.
    FactOpinion...we lacked preparation and motivation.
    FactOpinion...this board is sunshine pumpers by a vast majority.
    FactOpinion...there are so many red flags here that there's reasons for negativity.  If somebody gets frustrated by perceived negativity, they need to step back and look at all the facts, not just the hand selected ones.
    BTW: I'm okay with opinions - doesn't mean they're wrong opinions, but opinions are they.

    Lol I’m so over this vilification of our fan base. It’s comical at this point. So he takes 1 negative reply from a guy that probably isn’t even an IU fan and says great fan base? Lol there were tons of positive replies to his tweet. Ignorance at its finest

    Banksyrules reacted to Uspshoosier in 2019 General Recruiting Thread   
    I don’t care how often they are right. Face it plenty of quality players outside the top 100 that contribute to high major, mid major, and low major teams. I have no problem with the ranking and scouting services, I actually go to these recruiting events and talk rankings and recruits with most of them. I also know its impossible for these people to see all these kids play and they know it as well. So many more under ranked kids make an impact for their schools then most want to acknowledge. 353 D-1 schools and only 100 top kids each year. That leaves a lot of playing time for “3 stars” to make an impact for their schools. Luckily coaches recruit whoever they want despite the noise from keyboard experts that knows whats best.

    Banksyrules reacted to Old Friend in So some concerns I’m having...   
    I'm more concerned with style.   The ACC, for example plays a wide open style that's not as physical.  Much more fun to watch.  Historically, some Big Ten teams have gotten in trouble with fouls because they play a physical game and NCAA refs don't allow it.   Indiana needs more talent to be sure, but I'm not sure the Big Ten doesn't need to change the way they officiate and perhaps the kinds of athletes they recruit.

    Banksyrules reacted to mdn82 in (2019) SF Keion Brooks Jr. to Kentucky   
    I was one of Brooks biggest early critics when it came to his attitude, effort, and skill level. I felt as though he was very similar to Wilkes and potentially would have trouble living up to his rating. That said he impressed me last summer and this year. It’s a miss. Nothing more and nothing less. It’s gonna happen when you go up against the schools we are for players. I personally feel some are overdramatizing the miss like it’s the end of the world. While a good player he isn’t the difference in 5-7 wins like some of you are acting. That’s absurd. That would put him on Zion Williamson’s level and he is not that. It’s a miss. Nothing more and nothing less.
