    Didn’t really know where to post this so just decided this was the most generic that would work. I’ll be at the MSU game Thursday, wondering if there’s any new restaurants to grab dinner beforehand or just stick to something like Malibu or Jankos. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners
  2. For what’s its worth, I know a HS teammate of Eric Gordon that knows for a fact he was getting some extra benefits. Which the way things are I’m fine with. I don’t want to be a Kentucky or Duke, but Sampson plays the game and he wins. Every top player Archie has gone after outside of Indiana has gone to a school known to play the game. No matter who our coach is until our admin loosens the reigns a little I think we’re going to continue to struggle against the perennials. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Guys, he’s right. We’re all wrong. Every time. The sooner we grasp that the better. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    (2020) SF Jordan Geronimo to Indiana

    Completely agree. I haven’t looked at numbers so this could be completely wrong, but I think our best lineups are when only have 2 of TJD, Brunk, and Smith in at one time. I thinkHunter is slowing coming along, think it would help him a lot to get more minutes to get in rhythm. Would eventually love to see a lineup of: 1 - Rob 2 -Armaan 3 - Hunter 4 - Smith 5 - TJD Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    It’s okay man, it’s impossible to get a “yea, but” person to understand. The rest of us appreciate your input and understand the logic. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

  8. His guys are Sophomores. It’s definitely not going to work if you get rid of him before he even has a chance to get old. I’m not saying keep him 6+ years to find out, but as of today we have solid wins and not so bad losses on paper and it seems some are acting like we’re 4-13, not 13-4 Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app
  9. I highly doubt Archie is oblivious to our atrocious shooting. However, unlike our last coach he doesn’t seem to be one to throw kids under the bus for being poor shooters. He was a career 85% FT shooter and 43% 3PT shooter at NCST. I feel like he understands the importance. Same thing with our offense last year, opposing defenses pack the lane and don’t allow us to do what we want because we have zero outside shooting threats right now. If we even get one guy shooting consistent to make the defense respect our outside game it opens the lanes a lot more and allows the offense to be more free flowing. Outside of when we make terrible turnovers, the offense isn’t as terrible as some think. Obviously the ball isn’t going in the basket, so it looks bad, but we make good rotations and movement a lot of the time, but when the lane is full of defenders and you can’t shoot it dramatically changes the way the offense runs. Again, I don’t know if Archie is the long term answer but I still think it’s way too early to cut bait right now and start all over. There’s a lot of top coaches out there that if you look back at their records they didn’t start winning big in their first 2-3 years. Am I saying give him 9 years to prove something, absolutely not. But we are not a Bill Self taking over Roy Williams Kansas team type of program. We’re an Archie Miller taking over Tom Crean. I have no problem jumping in the get rid of him wagon if things continue to go down hill, but as frustrating as our losses have been this year, and last year, we were in contention in a lot of them and a few shots made changes a lot of things.

    He was terrible I agree. But again, Archie seemed to pull players and sit them when they made dumb mistakes. Green played 13 minutes, when you make 1 FG from outside the paint and every single one of your guards makes the same terrible mistakes I don’t know if I can say that’s Archie was all talk and not sticking to what he said. We are absolutely atrocious from an outside shooting perspective, no lineup tonight changed that. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Some positive distraction for the person asking about Geronimo. Indiana signee Jordan Geronimo (@JordanGeronimo2) had a huge game today: Career-high 32 points, four made 3s, 12-19 from the field overall, 11 rebounds, four blocks, three assists, two steals. #iubb Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    Our shooting is atrocious. Hunter looks scared to shoot it when he’s open. Rob seems to lost confidence in hit shot. Unfortunately, when every single one of your guards is playing terrible what are you supposed to do with subs. I feel like for the most part he has pulled guys and sat them down a After stupid mistakes, but everyone is making the same stupid mistakes. I’m not against throwing Bybee in there and just letting him fire away. Got nothing to lose at this point. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners
  14. Tell me more about Al needing more playing time Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners
  15. Okay sorry should have just said not good. Sure we’re deep, we have an entire roster. But leave devonte in too long he starts doing stupid stuff so take him out. Then put Al in and he plays too long and starts doing stupid stuff, so take him out and put in Armaan, and he plays too long and does stupid stuff. Our guards are just not good right now. The argument Archie recruited them is fine, he recruited others too and didn’t get them, this is what we have. They aren’t good right now. Like I said Archie is to blame for stuff but he can’t make shots for these guys he can’t pass for these guys. I’m just as frustrated as any but I’m very curious to see if the same people who think Archie miller is the worst thing to walk on campus since gene keadys first game here and blame him for all the losses will give him any kind of credit at all for any wins here and in the future.
