    I’m pretty sure fan disatisfaction is the only thing that does change anything. Crean couldn’t coach 9 years when did he get let go. When the fans demanded it. When did Wilson get fired. When he was abusing players or when the fans got upset he was abusing players.

    I don’t have a solution but that doesn’t make it more acceptable

    Missing on like a dozen targets is hardly just fine. Clearly Archie thought he needed another guard and we couldn’t get one. Now in 2020 we will have a very thin guard rotation. Probably requiring a freshmen or grad transfer that cycle to contribute.

    You are correct. I forgot McSwain took over for Smith. We returned 3 starters(from end of season) and then Smith who played very good as a freshmen and was anticipated to be ready to be a starter.

    Slow and steady wins the race. Holtman hasn’t missed the tourney while at a P5 school and is killing it on recruiting. He lost a lot after his first year and he coached his guys up and made the tourney. We lost 1 starter and replaced him with a 5 star 1 and done and it translated to not all that much because for the most part our player development was not there.

    RP was 35 or so while healthy. Would definitely expect around 35-38 from him.

    3 points is not immaterial. Games are won or lost by that many all the time. And using Rob as an example is flawed. When healthy he was shooting a lot better than 1.5% better than Juwan yet, Juwan was still right up there with him on attempts. Coaches a lot of time look at Points per 100 possessions. A 1.5% increase in shooting 3s is a big deal on that metric.

    How many top 100 players did we have last year? He had like 8 scholarship players. He got basically all to contribute versus our 50% or so. Just because he did more with less doesn’t mean he had a better situation.

    What outside success they both had success at smaller schools 2-2 is very different than 4-0 btw Holtman has made the tourney 5 straight years. 4 of these years were 1st or 2nd years at his school. Holtman has done twice what Archie wasn’t able to do and it was unfair to expect him to do(according to some)

    Never said it was a fact but to say it’s Ludicrous is absolutely wrong and no it was generally agreed by both Fanbases that holtman had it worse

    Izzo beat Archie last year so you’re Ridiculous point is even more ridiculous

    You can disagree all you want that’s not how statistics work

    4-0 record against Archie yet it’s ludicrous he’s better?

    1.5% is not basically the same.

    Steve Alford probably would right about now.
  16. I’d say make it versus Purdue

    Lol this post is pretty ironic.

    2019 Off-Season IU Roster News and Moves

    I wouldn’t call 1.5% difference basically the same. Besides his non-concussion numbers are better.

    Support and being overly positive are very different things. Your saying support but you are criticizing me for not being overly positive. I do support the program. I just don’t have much faith in it.

    So we protest when an abusive coach is fired for being abusive and that equals loyalty to the team but protesting when the guys who are in charge are being idiots oh well that would be disloyal and those people should just find a new team. Be happy or get lost definitely seems like a strategy for success

    Lol unlike Gradman I do celebrate things when they go well. Those are just few and far between so I don't blame you guys on missing them. The concept of shut up and let it play out is flawed on a number of levels. And also how we endured 9 years of Crean.

    And that's why this fanbase has accepted mediocrity most of my life.

    If the whole pretext is the wrong players were shooting the 3s you can't just combine two with our most prolific shooter. Juwan and Morgan with Romeo in this case. It diminishes difference between Juwan and Rob. Your arbitrarily weighting to make the impact less severe. To try and hide the fact that a sub 30% shouldn't be shooting more than 1 attempt a game Our offense was completely broken because who was taking our 3 pointers. Look at Virginia. They only had 3 players at or around 40% but because those guys took over 70 percent of their 3s. Probably over 80 if you remove garbage time. Their offense was one of the most efficient in the country.

    I don't recall anybody predicting/hoping for a FF before year 4 and that was contingent on getting Brooks.

    This is bad stats. You can’t just average 2 players stats without accounting for attempts. I’d break it down more but currently holding a toddler
