    Inclined to Give Archie a Break

    Changing your style and philosophies based on players is not a very good recipe for long term success, As has been stated multiple times. You recruit players for your system, not constantly change your system based on players. This seems to be more difficult for some to accept than others but it is what it is. It makes no sense to change his system to try to salvage a year. Outside of Romeo he has an entire roster of young players that will be here for another 2-3 years that will know the system and will be able to help incoming players learn it as well. If you change it year by year you never get that consistency. If we still suck year 3/4 then I’ll be the first to admit that maybe we were wrong about Archie, but people crucifying him need to set more realistic expectations.

    Anyone care to share a brief summary on the 247 Article Rabby just posted about Brooks recruiting ? Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    So some concerns I’m having...

    This team certainly has its flaws, especially offensively. But one of the things I think IU has been missing for a long time is that energy spark player. An AJ Moye or Will Sheehey type. They need someone to come in off the bench and bring the energy. No one seems to show much enthusiasm or carry it over when big plays happen. Juwan occasionally will flex after an and1 or dunk, but we haven’t had a big spark plug in awhile and this team desperately needs to play with more energy and enthusiasm and carry it over to both ends of the court. Perhaps it’s a Jerome Hunter or someone that’s been injured. Certainly need solid recruits that fill needs, but surely someone on this team can learn to let loose and play with some emotion and fire instead of being so nonchalant about everything.

    Can you just get this over with for us and please tell us who we’re getting committed for the next couple years? Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Stevie Boy Wonder Fired at UCLA

    I’m not saying it’s true, I’m just relaying that I had heard that a big time lawyer and a “billionaire” that are associated with the booster club are wanting Pitino. With the way the way things have played out I would not say he’s out of the question. At some point programs just want to win and will take a few weeks of scrutiny. Let’s be honest, if they do hire Pitino once the season starts and they win some games all the negatives headlines will go away and it’ll turn in to if Pitino can take them back to glory.

    Heard there’s some pretty big money UCLA boosters that are already asking for Pitino Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    IU hasn’t been “IU” for decades. It’s not like he came here and took over a dominate program because the coach retired. He took over a program that was incredibly inconsistent because with players that were taught...actually I don’t know what they were being “taught”. I get the frustrations, but good lord, expectations vs reality need to be considered a little more. I want to win and be back to where we once were so long ago but it’s not going to magically happen in 1 season. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Nothing like keyboard coaches to pinpoint exactly what’s wrong with the team and precisely how to fix it and ready to get rid of a coach they were praising a few months ago on bringing in this class. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    I can second that. Heard that he is a very big Michigan fan and that if they come calling it may be a shoe in for them to get him. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Is this the article you’re talking about? Not a member so I couldn’t read it. The description sounds encouraging however. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    (2018) PG Darius Garland to Vandy

    To quote the great Ricky Bobby “if you’re not first you’re last”. Doesn’t bother me at all he said we finished third or wherever. He chose Vandy for reasons he thought was best for him, good for him. We didn’t get him now on to the next. Once Archie gets 1-2 of his classes here I️ think we’re going to start seeing quick improvements. Noting against Creans guys but they’ve had 3-4 years of bad non fundamental basketball pounded in to them. IUs outlook for the future is still very bright in my eyes.
