    2019 General Recruiting Thread

    ?? Not sure how you deduced that from my post, especially when someone else is talking about how he hopes he rides the bench. I'm not bitter at all. I said I don't wish him any ill will. I do think coming to IU would've been better because he wouldn't be fighting with other similarly talented players to get on the court, but he didn't want to and that was his choice.

    About how I feel. This is what Calipari does. I don't wish Keion ill will, but him potentially getting recruited over was something a lot of people thought might happen at UK. Just a little surprised that it's happening only a month after he committed.

    Calimari up to his slimy ways, I'm shocked. Could've came to IU and played as much as you wanted Keion, but alas..

    When does his visit start? Maybe him and Devonte will hit it off as they're both from the city.

    Not a George fan, but he had a good game last night. I read somewhere that he's dealing with a shoulder injury too. I gotta put most of the blame on Westbrook for taking 31 shots to George's 20. Russ chucked that game away for them.

    (2019) CG - Anthony Harris to North Carolina

    A four game sample size over two seasons in which 3 of the 4 games were decided by 4 points or less isn't the strongest evidence. People will always be comparing them because they took over Big 10 programs at the same time as each other. Holtmann took over a much better situation than Archie did.

    No one's killing to start off with that roster. Cmon. This is an emotional reaction, not a logical one.

    Holtmann has done pretty well so far, but I don't think you can point to his success at Ohio State and assume that would've translated to IU. They were two very different situations. Archie has to make some improvements this year though, for sure.

    Good fit for him and closer to home.

    Holtmann went from 25-9 and 15-3 in conference his first year to 20-15 and 8-12 his second year. If that happened to him here people would be talking about how the sky is falling and he couldn't get it done with his own players. The grass isn't always greener on the other side...

    Virginia kid wants to stay close to home where his family can watch him play. Can't be upset about that. Archie will be fine. I'm ready to get things started with the guys we've got.

    My post wasn't about the other players, it was about Johnson, as was yours. His free throw percentage was a little lower as a senior than a junior, but he was shooting 2.6 per game compared to 1.6 per game the previous year. His senior free throw percentage was higher than his average in the three previous years combined. His 3 point percentage dropped from his sophomore year to his junior year, and then improved from his junior year to his senior year. If there are examples of players who regressed under Archie then use them, because Rob was not one of them.

    I'm pretty sure that I've had this conversation with you before. You claimed "People don’t like this but his 3 point shooting regressed under Archie." As a junior he shot 37% on 5.6 attempts per game. As a senior he shot 37.3% on 5.7 attempts per game. In no world does it make sense to claim that his 3 point shooting "regressed" under Archie when his percentage wasn't lower than the previous year. How do you regress by improving? As a sophomore he shot 44.7% from 3 on 3.8 attempts per game. It's not at all unusual for a player's percentage to drop when their volume increases. Any drop in his 3 point shooting happened before Archie became the coach. It's silly to attribute that to him when it happened under the previous regime.

    That's just not true. He shot a higher percentage on more attempts as a senior under Archie than he did as a junior under Crean.

    Not tanking was the right move for the Pacers, imo. This year's draft is a pretty weak one. When Oladipo got hurt they were 31-15. Even if they lost every single game for the rest of the season, they would've only ended with the 6th worst record in the NBA. There was just too much ground to make up at that point to make tanking worth it.
