    2019 Off-Season IU Roster News and Moves

    I’m really surprised that there isn’t much mention of Sean East. I watched him play several times in HS with Romeo and each time came away more impressed. He had great court vision, handle the ball really well and has a good left stroke from 3. He might be a slighter frame, but a kid who has to work his tail off and feels under valued, plays with a chip on their shoulder. That’s the kind of kid I want on my team. Much like a Tom Coverdale was as IU, the kid most overlooked, but had that never quit attitude. Some things aren’t measured by size and speed, it’s attitude and heart. Think he’d be a great asset and one we’ll regret not taking a risk on. Anyone else surprised there’s no mention?? Great pub on the kids season at Combine, love the work ethic https://www.ncsasports.org/mens-basketball-recruiting/indiana/new-albany/new-albany-senior-high-school/sean-east2 https://www.newsandtribune.com/sports/what-s-next-for-former-new-albany-star-sean-east/article_eb91fd4c-45b2-11e9-874e-e36ccd89452b.html

    Welcome Coach Miller

    Same thoughts with Archie. Take away EE flash in pan and would anyone even care? Nope. No home run hire outside of Stevens or Donovan. After that you have to look at someone who's been to a FF minimum or several EE's and been very successful in season. Won conf a few times, pushed close to 30 wins and been consistent with no 7th, 8th, or 10th place finishes 3 out of 4 like our previous. There are only a few that fit that bill. Bennett or Marshall. After that Glass statements don't fit anyone else's resume. If someone lower is introduced then we got turned down, plain and simple.

    Let's hope it stays that way.

    That would be a relief!

    Roy Williams denied it too and introduced with UNC a few days later. I won't buy anything until the new coach is introduced.

    At least it wouldn't be Alford. Bennett would be one of those top 5 coaches out there and is better than a mid major like Archie. He's In a top 3 conf. Has proven he's no fluke. IU alone would bring him those top 40 players and that would make a HUGE diff in offensive performance. We would play great D and be in all games. @47 yrs old, he's got 15-20. However, watching Florida, White might be that next great coach and has proven way more than Archie and other mid majors. Not enough exp tho for my liking. Is this a product of half Donovan's old team?

    Do potential coaches actually visit the campus / facilities of the future employer? I'm leaning towards no. Thus rendering the flight tracking useless. Unless of course you're solely tracking Parker planes?

    With no Stevens likely and Donovan a low probability............those are my top 3. Not necessarily in that order, but those 3. Experience, High win percentage, and no infractions.

    Brian Gregory, only one I can think of. Just got hired at South Florida?? He has not been very good either. Has managed to go from Dayton to GA Tech(fired) and now SF

    Exactly. Marshall, Mike White, Holtmann, Mack - all find ways to elevate their team. Alford's teams were always mediocre and lose to teams they shouldn't, just like Crean. Just say NO to Alford.

    He played for Jim Crews. Rumored he was dismissed from the team after hitting on Crews wife. So there's your IU connection.

    Alford doesn't do any either. Delegates it all to his assistants.

    Exactly my point. To that same point, just because Donovan has 2 NCAA rings doesn't mean he'll get a third, but we'd all be DARN happy seeing him announced as the new coach, now wouldn't we?

    DeCourcy's article hits it on the head for why we DON'T NEED Alford. The last couple paragraphs Since 1980, 37 NCAA championships have been decided; only five were won by coaches working at their alma maters. Which means 86.5 percent of championship coaches arrived with little or no connection to the college hiring them. It would be an entirely different college basketball world if John Calipari were the coach at Clarion, Mike Krzyzewski were coaching Army and Beilein worked his offensive magic at Wheeling College. This is rather an absurd scenario, of course, but that is the logical extension of hiring a head basketball coach primarily because of where he attended college. But Wheeling would have a hell of a team.

    Wow. Marshall stands out in that list. Too bad his wife stood out Sunday.
