    Is there speculation that he's saying he's getting these offers as a way to stir up attention?

    19/20 Squad = Class Balance

    He must have deleted the tweet because I can't find it. Probably not something he should tweet, but I can't blame him for thinking it. Not exactly the same situation, but I've worked an unpaid internship before and not getting paid sucked. Obviously his 'job' comes with some sweet benefits, but still.

    Honestly, Dakich is much worse than Skip Bayless. Skip trolls, but he's respectful to his guests. He doesn't call them names, he doesn't insult them, nothing like that. He just likes to say outrageous things for attention. Dakich does that while also acting like a dbag to his guests, random twitter people, people who call into his show, etc. "blogger boy", "little Archie", "shoe guy", yet last night he threw a fit when someone called him old on twitter.

    If he wants IU to become a winner again he's not helping us with his antics. He trolls like a knock off Skip Bayless minus class and respect for the people he targets. He's been taking shots at Archie since the day he was hired because we didn't hire his guy Alford. I don't buy that he does this because he's tired of the losing because he doesn't keep the same energy when people he likes are in similar positions as people he doesnt like.. Kris Wilkes was Indiana Mr. Basketball and a McDonalds all-American, and Alford turned him into an undrafted rookie. Crickets from Dakich. Yet he tweets out hate when Romeo still gets drafted in the lottery. He's hypocritical.

    Absolutely agree. Instead of praising Romeo's selfless decision to sacrifice his draft stock for the team and play 3.5 months with a torn tendon in his shooting hand, he decided to troll the program for Romeo falling in the draft. What a sad, pathetic man. Romeo has been all class throughout it all. Dakich could learn a thing or two from him.

    Dakich is seriously the worst. Idk how the "he really loves IU' guys can still believe that with all the things he does. If you love your school then you don't use your sizeable media platform to crap on them constantly.

    I feel bad for Bol Bol. He looked so sad.
  9. Idk, I mean I grew up in America so maybe that's why it's hard for me to believe that he doesn't understand. With how long he's lived in the US though you'd think he would at least know that it's a big deal. Something like "I don't understand why these silly Americans care so much about their college sports, but I understand that they do so I better emphasize it."
  10. I really don't understand the "he just doesn't get athletics" comments that I often see. Like, sure, he's from Australia and college sports aren't a big thing over there. So what? He's not a dumb man. Given his career, I assume that he's a very smart man. He sees how big sports are in the US. He's lived in Indiana since 1997. He sees the thousands of fans who go to the basketball games, the students who camp out for hours/days for big games, etc. There's no way that you can be smart enough to become a president at a major university without understanding that sports are a big deal here. Saying that he doesn't "get" athletics is giving him an excuse. He understands, he just doesn't care.

    He was a freshman. Not all freshmen are ready to contribute from day 1. He wasn't a top 25 recruit. People talk a lot about how they want to "get old and stay old", but then they cast players off as terrible when they don't immediately contribute. Plenty of players who played sparingly their first year or two went on to make great contributions as upperclassmen.

    Are you talking about Forrester? Because while he wasn't ready to consistently play as a freshman, he had some good moments that makes it reasonable to believe he could've played as an upperclassman. That transfer seemed to have more to do with Big Daddy Cornbread than it did Forrester not being any good.

    It's a step back from Duke/UNC, but it gives us something new. Seeing the same matchups every year would get a little boring for a lot of people. This is Florida State's first trip to Assembly, so that'll be cool, plus they've been a really solid team recently. I don't think we should be concerned that this is because of them no longer seeing us as a top program. Every few years they switch it up and put us with a 'lesser' program. In 2014 we played Pittsburgh and in 2011 we played NC State.
