    (2020) SF Jordan Geronimo to Indiana

    What amazing progress! It only took a little over a decade for Crean to get a little credit for developing Wade.

    Ed Schilling Leaving, Mike Roberts Arriving

    I have never subscribed to the idea that we need an IU guy as I believe the correct fit and skill set is far more important. I didn't even know Mike Roberts was coaching so I can hardly say if he will be a good fit or not. I highly suspect though that he will be a far better choice than Cheaney, who many were clamoring for, would have been. I'd much rather have a guy that has committed to making a career of being a coach and is pursuing it to his fullest than someone that is not as dedicated and doesn't want it as bad. How good a player was has little to do with how good of a coach they will be.

    (2020) SG Trey Galloway To IU

    Evans did have a shot that seemed like it was always going in but If Galloway plays half as tough and determined as Evans did then IU will be in good shape during his 4 years. The thing I will always remember about Evans is when he dislocated his shoulder and then forced it back in during a game. I think he did that a couple of times that season.

    19/20 Squad = Class Balance

    The problem is that certain people ALWAYS see giant red flags everywhere, whether or not they actually exist. Kind of like how to a guy with a hammer everything looks like a nail. Or perhaps the allegory of the boy who cried wolf is more apropos. Either way, the change you were clamoring for occurred and now, less than two years in, you are already clamoring for change again. Why should anyone expect it to be any different this time if/when the change you are clamoring for again occurs? There is nothing wrong with having expectations but there is something wrong with constantly throwing tantrums when the expectations are not met especially when you never seem to evaluate whether or not the expectations are valid as thoroughly as you evaluate those that failed to meet them. There's a difference between having expectations and being entitled.

    Patience can lead to success. Frequently throwing tantrums and demanding changes, on the other hand, is more likely to impede success than lead to it.

    College Bball Thread

    Of course other fan bases have their idiots but the fact that UK fans act like idiots frequently shouldn't be used as an excuse for IU fans to act like idiots. UK fans should be example of what to avoid not to emulate. If there is any chance that the behavior of fans online could negatively effect recruiting then why take the chance? Is acting like an idiot online so important to some that it is worth any potential risk? is constantly b******* and moaning about everything online so enjoyable that it must be pursued at all potential costs? Is it really that hard to practice a little self control and not act like UK fans?
  7. Holy crap, they finally called Wichita State for a push on a rebound! I didn't think I would ever see that.

    2019 General Recruiting Thread

    Henry wasn't officially offered until the 16th but he was being recruited well before then and he had the opportunity to commit when he was offered. Regardless, Archie prioritized Hunter, who was and is by all reports far more talented if he had not had a health issue, over Henry. Anderson had nothing to do with Henry and even if he had, both then and now, we need/ed a rugged three point shooter more than and undersized post.

    Fire Fred Glass

    Well, if one is going to so indulge the revisionist fantasy that a coach who wasn't even on the radar at the time of the hire was a viable option, then I doubt reality is going to have much effect on them. Besides, it is quite comical that those who have already made up their minds about Archie in year two are proclaiming their patience for Belein.

    Henry had every chance to commit first and waited too long. Besides, it was really Hunter who we took over him not Anderson.

    IU v OSU BTT Thread

    SMH, the goal at IU is more than just making the tourney though no matter how much you want to move the goal posts. I suspect you would be among the foremost of those complaining if Archie made the tournament the next 6 years in a row but lost in the round of 64 twice and never made it past the Sweet 16. Go build a shrine to Painter and Purdue if you want. (Or is it OSU and Holtman now?) Either way it is clear that you are determined not to have a rational conversation so I'm done.

    IU v OSU BTT Thread

    In point of fact Purdue lost in the round of 64 most of those few extra trips to the tourney, which is the very definition of marginal where expectations at IU are concerned. Making the tournament to lose in the first or second round a few times is better, which I acknowledged, but it is not enough better to actually matter which you seemingly can't acknowledge.

    IU v OSU BTT Thread

    What I want is to understand how someone can hold Painter up as "dude that wins" and Purdue as a consistently successful program despite their wins and success being only marginally better than IU's. I'm trying to figure out if it is a complete lack of perspective or more of a recency bias thing. Purdue has been near their ceiling for much of Painter's term and IU has been at their floor for much of the last two decades and yet PU's ceiling is pretty similar to IU's floor.

    IU v OSU BTT Thread

    And you really think that would have kept the calls for Painter to be fired from getting really loud if he'd coached at IU? When I first noticed your signature I assumed you'd lost a bet, now I'm starting to wonder....

    IU v OSU BTT Thread

    Probably not but he was a hell of a coach anyway.
