    And because it is smart to wait if you can.

    IUBB vs Chicago State - Tues. 11/6 at 6:30 pm ET

    I like Phinisee and I like what i have seen from him so far. Still it is only one real game, though and there's no need to get too carried away. Phinisee will be a significant contributor in many games but he will also struggle at times and have poor games. We will need both Green and Phinisee to play well.

    There is a lot of that too it to be sure but another major part is the constant rush to judgement on a player. It was several games into the season last year and several posters were chomping at the bit to write Morgan off. It wasn't too many games after that when the tune changed dramatically. It shouldn't really surprise anyone that many are already writing Green and Anderson(wth?) off and anointing Phinisee for the entire season after only one game. It's almost like being first with an opinion is more important than being accurate.

    Intentional Fouls

    No, it sounds like we are wanting officials to make more judgement calls on whether or not players sufficiently disguised their fouls at the end of games.
  5. Yes, if the team can develop the tough, gritty defense that Archie's teams were known for they will have a punchers chance in any game. Then, if a few shots fall at the right time...

    The kids on academic scholarship have more reason to complain than those on athletic scholarship. Either way, both types know exactly what they are signing up for and do so voluntarily. A scholarship is the best deal most of them get since the reality is that the supply of raw, unproven potential is high and the demand for it is low. Whining because the market doesn't value their time and effort as much as they do is nothing more than entitlement.

    Well, if you insist on being a spoilsport... logically, if a kid felt that way about a coach and a university they wouldn't even consider them in the first place.

    What TJD said recently is about as close as you are going to get: "I'm no longer considering Purdue." I think that roughly translates to: "Man that coach stinks worse than I thought and the university is a bigger excrement hole than I ever imagined. What makes them think I would ever go there and waste my time?"

    College Bball Thread

    I'm not going to rehash what happened 8-10 years ago but there is a whole lot more to the story of why it took so long for IU to rebound and it is not all Crean's fault. Those discussions were tired and worn out back when Crean was still here let alone now. Yet, some can't go a week without interjecting Crean into any discussion. Some behave almost as though Crean wronged them personally and others seemingly are constantly on the lookout for something to complain about.

    College Bball Thread

    Seems about right. Apparently we are revising history to fit the current narrative about the past as well as inventing facts to support the current narrative about the present. Current, past, neither really matter just so long as the narrative can be pushed and the whining can continue.
  11. I'm pretty sure I read somewhere recently that Stewart wanted to commit before his senior season starts.

    Well, Lubbock in early September is probably better than Lubbock in July or August but that is pretty academic and about the nicest thing I can say about it.

    I get what you are saying and agree to a point. It is pretty clear though that the purpose was promotion/hype of the program and people are acting like the truth has never been stretched a bit before while promoting a college basketball team.

    Lol, you're taking this entirely too seriously. The NBA combine is almost as pointless as this discussion and their rules are entirely arbitrary but if it makes you feel better to consider the tweet and video deceptive knock yourself out.

    While awesome is not exactly the term I would choose to describe this discussion, I agree it doesn't matter in the least. Besides it is called maximum vertical, not maximum vertical in three or less steps.
