    2020 General Recruiting Thread

    See my great fear in these rankings is that for awhile only rivals and 247 were really trying. And it really feels to me like Rivals is phoning it in more and more and not watching the kids as much.
  2. His teams have lacked accountability. That isn’t changing. They lack ball handling and shooters and we don’t have any in the pipeline. If we don’t make a change we prolong the inevitable. These problems aren’t going away with time. Substitution patterns make no sense. We have given him 9 million dollars. And our team looks just as bad if not worse than the teams that got Crean and Davis fired. If the guy ain’t the guy. It’s time to find a new guy. Archie ain’t the guy

    So that’s two people that can’t shoot at least

    One of many wasted possessions at the end as our offense stopped executing and people tried to get theirs

    Peyton Ramsey Entering Transfer Portal

    Don’t blame him one bit. No matter how well he played he was going to lose the job because how somebody else practiced. Hope Tuttle is ready.

    Cam defenders are now comparing Devonte Green to Brett Favre to justify him continuing to allow Green to hinder this team. That’s an impressive stretch

    And they would be wrong. And I’ll admit in anger I have said it. But his failures to prevent playground Devonte from hurting this team year after year speak to leadership issue.

    We don’t play Michigan at home.

    All coaches at this level know basketball. It’s about leadership and team building.

    Green had a decent scoring night. But the previous time he was in the offense got stagnant as well. Phinisee and Al should have been in. Offense was much more dynamic and challenging to Maryland when they were playing.

    Oh man that’s some generic internet tough guy talk. That might be the most generic I’ve seen in fact. This isn’t even about basketball. It’s general leadership. If you let one person go out and do whatever they want to the detriment of the team. And you let them continue to hurt the team. You aren’t doing your job as a leader. Every leader has to deal with these personalities.

    But he’s saying that’s some sort of baseline for criticism allowed or some nonsense. Thus fallacy.

    No I fully understand. That would put us at only 5 wins. And I would peg it as being more likely we drop 2 homes games and only snag 1 road win. Which would be 4 more wins

    Lol you post a bs false argument and you think you can make it good by egging me on. None of us could have done better than Crean. Guess he was good enough after all by that logic.

    We shall see. I fully believe we can win that many games as well. First and foremost stop with the junk line ups.

    Maryland at IU Game Thread 01/26 1 PM CBS

    I don’t really gamble. But honestly I look at our schedule and don’t feel comfortable about predicting a single road win? Even if we get one I think we are just as likely to cough up another home game. im honestly going to peg us at 3-5 more wins. This prediction will change if at any point Archie stops playing junk lineups and we start playing focused basketball for 40 minutes. 3 of our 5 wins have come against Nebraska and Northwestern. You took offense to the term gimmes but we don’t have any games that easy the rest of the way. The rest of our schedule looks much more like our 4 losses than our 5 wins.

    Pretty much. I don’t say what I say lightly though We looked like crap. So I had concerns. And yeah we are slightly better this year. But guess what the Big Ten is better. Were past our three gimme games. We are 2-4 in our non gimme games. We have to play more consistent against the non dregs of the conference. Our current level of play translates to 3 or 4 more wins. Pretty thin margin there.

    The Unbridled Negativity Thread

    Why look passed wins and losses? Maybe because not all wins are good. The comeback win against UC Davis was evidence of future struggles regardless of it being a win. They were wide open. Of course they went down. 6 turnovers was good. We still let Green go full hero mode and waste possessions at the end of the game. You thinking we shouldn’t have a problem winning 5 more is not evidence. We’ve had a Cush big ten schedule so far. It’s getting harder

    People keep saying we have different players with a different mindset. Yet we keep saying the same mistakes. We played great team offense most of the game. Then the last 4 minutes it completely disappeared. Just like last year with Romeo We had a line up that was curb stomping Maryland and rather than going for a double digit lead. We mass subbed and let Maryland stop the bleeding. Then the refs kept then in the game until our offense went stagnant. What happened to shortening the rotation? Just like last year failing to step on their throat. We failed to show up on defense for 12 minutes. Giving up wide open 3s after wide open 3. Failing to show up on D is certainly new but failing to show up has been a constant with these team.

    You don’t get to call the people who disagree with you negative then mock them for calling themselves realistic. Not really sure how you don’t choke on the hypocrisy.

    We were 12-2 last year and look what happened. You can’t throw away winnable games by not giving a damn about offense or defense for 10 minutes. You can’t give away games by playing a junk line up to finish the game. You especially can’t keep making those same mistakes. This league is brutal. We only have to go 4-7 the rest of the way but that’s not a given. We have to show up with purpose and not make boneheaded errors

    The Unbridled Negativity Thread

    Not even remotely close. The concerns would still be there. Stop pretending like the people who are worried are fickle. We are looking beyond wins and losses and looking at the product. We failed to show up on defense for 12 minutes. Our offense shut down during the final four minutes because of a terrible line up. Those things don’t go away because one shot goes down.

    A mature and well stated opinion. Oh wait no the other thing. I say realistic because everybody says negative. I was told I was being negative when I raised concerns last year. But those concerns turned to reality thus they became realistic.

    Screw this post so much. Most posters post frequently regardless of the outcome. This post is further proof that the concerns by the realistic fans haven’t been addressed and people are at a loss as to why.
