    2019 Off-Season IU Roster News and Moves

    I remember reading their name as being a school that reached out when he decommitted from Georgia St. Looks like he just finished an official visit and committed at the end of the visit

    (2020) SG Anthony Leal

    Interview with Leal on Rivals. Maybe I’m reading too much into his comments on Indiana but they don’t sound great; Indiana: “They have not offered yet. It’s pretty much the same thing. I still talk to them and stay in touch since it’s so close.” https://basketballrecruiting.rivals.com/news/four-star-indiana-guard-discusses-where-he-stands-in-recruitment Saw Purdue picked up a 2020 commitment from Jaden Ivey. I’m all in on IU staking Leal and Galloway. Two kids that want to play for IU. They both seem like players that could come back to haunt IU

    Joey Brunk to Indiana

    He was a finalist but Kyle Guy was Mr Basketball that year

    Even at IUs worst Assembly Hall has been full I will give you that. That being said the media picked IU to be middle of the pack this year and yet we had a big portion of the fan base talking about winning banner number 6. What I’m saying is exactly what was mentioned before, if we had Michigan and Beileins success ( big ten champions ever few years, finishing top 5 yearly, long tourney runs but no championships yet) would Indiana fans be trying to run him out of town? Brian Snow said on a podcast that’s Archie could have a long career with his brothers level of success here if people let him. Will IU fans let him? My whole argument is as a fan base we need to realize we haven’t been consistently relevant in 25 years. I would take the level of success that Purdue, Michigan, and Michigan State have had over the last decade and I’m not sure if most IU fans will. I think Archie can build something here still

    This is what really scares me about the program. I think IU can get back to blue blood status but seems like a good portion of the fan base has unrealistic expectations. If IU currently had Michigan’s level of success under Beilein (consistently at the top of the Big Ten, winning the conference every couple of years, making tournament runs, etc) i think that portion of the fan base would still be upset. I mean I want IU to win another title as much as anyone but I would kill for the current success that Michigan, MSU, and even Purdue has had over the last decade

    Well I have read several times from IU best writers that the reason Archie didn’t overhaul the roster when he came in is because the APR seas so bad that kicking a bunch of guys off would’ve resulted in a postseason ban because of the APR

    Does the APR situation allow for a handful of departures? I thought that was an issue

    This!! Seems that there are players that a lot on here want gone but now that a few of them have announced that they are in fact transferring it’s turned into bash Miller and the staff. A lot of people seem to be looking for reasons to complain

    I think that was his sister

    Seeing more rumblings of Jamie Dixon to UCLA. My dream scenario would be him going there and Desmond Bane coming to IU as a grad transfer
  11. I think they both would be easily attainable for the staff. Sounds like both would commit if given the opportunity. I’m just curious if there will be enough scholarships for both. For some reason both just remind of a classic type Indiana player and both seem to really want to be there.

    (2021) G Luke Brown

    The problem will be the 2021 class is loaded. There will be a lot of tough decisions. I wish Brown was playing up a year with Indiana Elite like Lander. It would give a great insight into how he handles playing with higher competition
  13. Wish that IU had a few more scholarships available for 2020 to play with. I think Leal and Galloway would be two guys that actually want to wear the candy stripes and would be kids who would work hard and hustle. Right now I’d be surprised if the staff brings even one of them on

    A big portion of the IU fan base is constantly ripping the team so why are we surprised when the media does the same? Purdue has a culture and a pattern to how they do things so I wouldn’t be surprised at all if they are still really good next year. They lost 4 seniors/starters coming into this year and ended up making it further
  15. Really like the idea of Lander playing up a year. Looking forward to seeing how this team does
