  1. If there was a polar opposite to Crean's coaching style, Archie's comes pretty close. As much as we hate it, this is a total culture change. I would rather have him take the time to build the foundation (something I felt Crean never did) and have sustained success.
  2. Hopefully that helps us.

    IUFB Offseason Updates

    How many of the teams that beat us had the player names on the back of their jerseys? Pretty sure it didn't give us any advantage.

    Getting Rid of Cable...maybe

    Same here. One of the things I like about these online services is that you can cut back at any time. I usually cut it back to the bare bones during the summer because I'm not watching much.

    Getting Rid of Cable...maybe

    I'll just say in my experience of having Hulu for a year and recently switching to YouTube TV, the picture is much better on YouTube. I really don't know why, but Hulu was always going back and forth between a very grainy picture to a decent picture. For whatever reason, YouTube doesn't do that and the picture definition is way better than Hulu ever was. Just my experience, but I'll pay a little extra for YouTube. Also annoyed me that I paid extra for no commercials on Hulu, but almost everything I watched had commercials.

    ...Effort and time. Time that could be used to do something constructive.

    2019 Off-Season IU Roster News and Moves

    Exactly - we need foundation players. We need guys that are here for 3-4 years and want to get IU back without worrying so much about their own draft status. It's easy to look at Oladipo and say we want a roster of those guys, but a little harder to know who those guys are. He had the physical tools, but worked his butt off to get his skills where they needed to be, all in the context of the team. He was a rare guy who could showboat a little, but you never felt like he was trying to hog the attention or take anything away from his teammates. But you also have guys with a lot of skill with maybe not all of the physical tools. Many times those guys play with passion and a chip on their shoulder that you don't get from the higher ranked players.

    So, just purely out of curiosity, does a student athlete have to go through a staff member to access it or can they do it on their own?

    For his sake, I hope this isn't true. I'd hate to be a kid who wanted to stay in college and have that kind of pressure put on him.
  13. Hopefully up and out of this mediocrity abyss we have been rolling around in.

    Transparency??? No way... not from our beloved NCAA.
  15. I would have said the same thing just based on observations from afar. I believe I remember correctly that the only way Moore agreed to play for Archie was if he wasn't red-shirted. There was all that talk of him being a NBA player too, which probably didn't help. I think if he wants to play, it may have to be somewhere else. I don't think Smith has seemed like he has wanted to be here for most of the year. Definitely get the impression (also based on his dad's comments) that he thinks he is a different player than he is. Seems like a good kid, but if he hasn't or isn't going to buy in, its best for both parties to look in another direction.
