    There’s a bunch of guys on this board trashing Archie.. Funny thing, some of them were the ones pushing hard for him during the coaching search. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    Wake me up when he's committed... And signed a LOI.

    IU vs OSU 2/10/19

    Smith is one of those guys who has so much athletic potential. He just seems so hesitant and never looks composed when he has the ball in his hands, despite playing major minutes. It leads to unforced turnovers, errant passes, and bad shots.. I'd love to see what this kid can do with a shot of confidence. Hopefully it doesn't take until his senior season to figure all this out.

    Which locker room stories are you referencing?

    IU vs IOWA 02/07/19 GAME THREAD!

    Where's Race? I guess he still isn't game ready?

    Totally agree.. He'll end up at Butler, Purdue, or Notre Dame if IU isn't careful. Then torch us in the Crossroad Classic.

    Man.. The more I read, the more I feel like Leal and Brown are 'must get's' for this program. Winning attitudes, blue collar mentality, and legit shooting. YES PLEASE.

    IUBB @ Rutgers- Game Thread

    No passion. No desire to get back on defense and beat the fast break. Lazy as ****. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    Pack line defense..

    That is very ironic, considering IU's fast break offense is about as potent as my kid's U8 Knicks squad's.

    Pack line defense..

    Any thoughts from the coaching minds about Archie's system? Specifically, does the pack-line philosophy hinder IU from running any fast breaks? I think this team has about 10 points off of fast breaks for the entire season. Are too many guys in the lane looking for a defensive rebound or double teaming to try to get a stop and it prevents them from getting out and running? Obviously this isn't a run-and-gun team, but the fast-break offense is non-existent for this group, and it seems to me there are a couple guys on this roster who could be deadly on the run (Smith/Romeo/Juwan).

    So some concerns I’m having...

    Got it.. Where this team is sitting today doesn't really mean anything though. The schedule is brutal coming down the stretch.

    Not being critical of why you used those metrics, because I get that. Just saying I've never seen any data to back up the correlation between high school rankings and college output. I can think of several current NBA Superstars and even a Hall of Famer or two off the top of my head who weren't in the top 50/100 nationally coming out of high school and blew up in college. HOWEVER, using the eye test, I think what you're saying is 100% spot on.

    So some concerns I’m having...

    I hate using High School rankings to prove a point about college players because there are so many exceptions and under/over achievers. That being said, I do agree with what you're saying in terms of needing talented experience.. This team basically has none except for Morgan.. Has anyone really assessed the remaining schedule? I'd say in terms of making the tournament, this team should be in full panic mode. Where are wins going to come from coming down the stretch? @ Rutgers? Eh. At home vs Ohio State? UGH. Not to mention there are still 2 games vs Michigan State and Iowa.. I think this team is NIT-bound at best barring a total turnaround.
