    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?
  2. 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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....

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

    LOL, Painter never made it past the Sweet 16 and won 1 additional BIG championship in 5 extra years.

    Yes, and we've changed coaches multiple times leading to the ongoing instability. Crean was fired from IU for accomplishing about what Painter has at PU.

    They missed the tourney two years in a row in the middle of those 12 seasons, finishing last in the BIG in 14'.

    That certainly would have helped. Unfortunately the best available coach at that time wasn't healthy enough for the job.
