    2019 Coaching Carousel

    Juwan Howard just hires Phil Martelli , legendary St Joe’s coach as an assistant on his staff
  2. Everything I’ve seen and read about him screams project. He’d be a practice player but wouldn’t be an in game, on the court contributor.
  3. I’m really interested to see if IU starts taking a closer look at Pack. He’s small but he’s a fantastic scorer and just seems to be a winner
  4. How do we know that the staff isn’t? I don’t feel like we knew about Fitzner until it was pretty close to a commitment
  5. Committed to Nebraska today
  6. Just got done reading that on Inside the Hall and immediately came back here to discuss. His comments are worrisome for me as well. I know the NBA is the goal for every player but we’ve seen that go badly here too often. Players that use IU as a stepping stone without investing much in the program. He’s a great player though. I’ll be curious to see what happens

    (2020) SG Trey Galloway To IU

    Both him and Leal have really good offers but seems both have been waiting for the IU offer.

    (2020) SG Anthony Leal to IU

    Galloway got an offer during his in home. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Leal get on as well.

    (2020) SG Trey Galloway To IU

    I’m curious if this is a commitable offer? Archie doesn’t seem like the type of coach to offer and tell a kid he wouldn’t accept his commitment immediately but who knows

    (2020) SG Anthony Leal to IU

    I’m curious how quickly a commitment takes place then. It seems like Leal has just been waiting for the IU offer

    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 to IU

    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
