    The Unbridled Negativity Thread

    Have we really gotten to the point where no one can have a frank and open conversation for fear of someone getting the vapors at the mere mention of something that is the slightest bit political?

    It's even worse when you consider the talent that OSU had/has.
  3. The physicality is not necessarily a bad thing in and of itself. The real problem is the inconsistency in the way each team is called and the way it can vary from game to game. Over the course of a season it has the tendency to prop up the more brutal teams which then frequently are bounced quickly from the tournament when the games are officiated much differently. Even that wouldn't be so bad if it didn't also have the tendency to produce lower seeding for the better, more talented and usually less brutal teams.

    I would think Mack is Wooden given Louisville's(and possibly Mack's) recent history and that Wooden/UCLA bought players.
  5. No, he can't and yes, it would be great if he could. The difference this year is that we have Smith, TJD, and Durham who can all step up and share some of the scoring burden when needed. We also have a stable of talented players behind them who fill much needed roles every game and are capable of stepping up when needed. We'll have bad games at some point this year but here's to hoping that we get the "Unlimited Ammo" Green when we need him most.

    (2020) PF/C - Dawson Garcia to Marquette

    Since you make a habit of posting wrong things attacking IU on a regular basis, I'm having trouble determining if your main complaint is the likely wrong information in the meme or the target of the meme. And, since you seem to have difficulty with such things, I'm joking... mostly.

    (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.

    19/20 Squad = Class Balance

    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.

    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?
  13. 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.

    Fred Glass Retiring

    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.
