    IUFB Offseason Updates

    I'm not as high on Penix as others. I thought that in the Penn State game he really struggled with his accuracy. He had a great arm, but was pretty wild. Maybe that has changed.

    That coach was me ;)

    I'm with you on many things, but not this one. Pack is listed as a 5'10 165 pound 3 star, ranked outside the top 150. If he committed to IU I think you would be complaining about how we picked up an undersized pg ranked 195th in the country.

    2019 Off-Season IU Roster News and Moves

    Smith is a guy who lacks a position. He can't be a power forward because he's not big enough. He's like 6'6/6'7 without a big frame. He'd be a perfect wing with his height and athleticism. But, he can't play on the wing because, well, he can neither dribble nor shoot.

    He did use the bench to motivate Smith last year, and it worked well if my memory serves me right.

    Well we had Noah Vonleh recruiting against IU because Crean was so bad.

    Archie has done a great job recruiting the state so far. I trust him in how he's handling this situation. If he thought that Brown's currently a high major prospect then he would offer him, or at least show interest. I think that the fact he doesn't have any high major offers right now shows that Archie has the right idea.

    Archie goes out and lands yet another Indiana kid. I'm happy to see us back to consistently landing the top in-state players. We will be in good shape so long as he can continue doing this.

    Maybe. But if you're an 18 year old kid, the opportunity to go to one of the best colleges in the world (while also enjoying nice weather year round) would be hard to pass up. I hope he picks us obviously, but if he doesn't I can't be mad at him. As much as I love IU and enjoyed my experiences there, I would've been very tempted by an opportunity like that.

    Or the "here's my top 10, still open to other schools though!" that we see from a lot of kids. I think Stanford will be tough to beat here.

    IU Athletics Facilities Photo Thread

    Yeah that's a really good point. Programs like LSU and others more than pay for themselves. If the money being spent on these fancy new athletic complexes was being taken away from academic spending then that would be one thing, but this money wouldn't exist if it wasn't for athletics. IU has the opposite problem. We have the president taking money away from athletics and spending it on academic buildings.

    Top athletics + top academics is unlikely to happen, but I would settle with not being below average in both compared to our peers. I know that academics should be #1 for a university, but right now IU isn't getting it done in that category either.

    IU Athletics Facilities Photo Thread

    I definitely agree that academics should be the #1 priority for universities, but at these big time P5 schools all the university needs to do is get out of the way and let the programs do their thing. I have to wonder if sports are a priority at all for IU when I hear stories like the one about how our compliance department is actively working against us. I don't want IU to turn into LSU and have giant gaping holes in the library walls, but I see no reason why we can't have both great athletics and great academics like Michigan, UVA, etc.

    The LSU football team made a profit of $55 million last year. Any academic shortcomings are not the football team's fault. It pays for itself, and more.

    The person you initially replied to said that football has been awful under Glass. It's a fact that it has been. So sure, we haven't been "awful compared to the awful football before Glass", but we haven't really been better either. We were awful then, and we are still awful now. Not much has changed.
