    And he's been nothing more than mediocre over the last 4-5 years. But that title and the fact that he is basically the mayor there makes him untouchable.

    Archie and Progress

    Yet to see a really good offense with Archie. Points are hard to come by. At some point this has to change if we are going to stop being a .500 BIG team and win a few more on the road. Year 4 he has to show improvement here. I don't care where the scoring comes from who else he brings in but its got to get better.

    A Transfer Coming?

    First transfer I have publicly seen us in on. I hope there are more. We absolutely need a grad transfer shooter this upcoming season.

    IU Football Off-Season

    I think James is a big loss. Maybe not this year if Scott stays healthy but next year. He looked to have everything you want in a RB and now we are left with absolutely nothing behind Scott as insurance. Deboer was going to leave regardless so I can't fault that but a large part of those 8 wins had to do with our offense taking a huge step forward. No excuse for the new OC to not build on that momentum as that was Allen's most important hire/decision this offseason.

    IU Football Off-Season

    It's Indiana football. Most other D1 football schools care enough to have some accountability here. However, Allen is going to ride this 8-4 season for probably a few years without anyone saying a word. And basketball season allows this to go under the radar to many. We've managed to now lose a top OL, a damn good backup QB, two key RB's, and at least four coaches I think? I don't ever think I have seen a max exodus for a team coming off their best season in years with the HC still around and a talented QB coming back....

    (2021) PG Khristian Lander to INDIANA

    I would still like to add a grad transfer shooter for next season if possible. It will improve from this year but still slots as not a strength.

    (2021) PG Khristian Lander to INDIANA

    Says offer is coming. You are right, no offer at the moment.

    Beilein will be available.....

    Respect the opinion of those that wouldn't want him unless its because of his age. Coach K is 73, Roy is 69....Beilein has at least 4 or 5 good years left in him and we just need someone to get the program on the right track. It shouldn't be a blocker that they are expected to be with IU for X number of years. This program just needs momentum and a winning attitude.

    Starting lineup

    This should be more like a 2021 lineup....Three of these guys just aren't high major starters yet.....Also, Brunk probably needs to start. Outside of TJD, he is one of the few that consistently bring it game in and game out. I like Race but haven't seen him put it together for more than a few games....he gets going and then gets hurt.

    Yep looked at it again...odd that it was the coaches and not the players. Illinois assistant seemed to instigate it by yelling that is BS because of a dunk when Iowa was up 8 and Illinois was trying to foul at end of game....He was actulaly directing it to the Iowa player who dunked and Fran going by him in handshake line obviously wasn't going to take that and got his team off the court. Bad look by whoever that assistant was.

    Anyone catch the end of that Illini-Iowa game? Looked like things got testy in the handshake line.
  12. I just want to know how Archie thought he would get by this season with the guards he has? Everyone was thinking we would add another one via transfer/JUCO in the off-season and it never came. I'm just shocked that the COACH couldn't identify that. I mean maybe he did reach out to some guys but i never remember seeing us mentioned with a lot of the guys that were out there. As is stated many times, he is going to be in for a rude awakening if he doesn't bring in an impact transfer with this freshman class.

    They also have a lot of talent on that roster. Ayo and Kofi were both top 30 recurits. But you're right they play hard. Both teams do and would crush us the way they are playing today.

    2019-2020 NBA Thread

    True. Lived in Dallas a while and got to see Dirk multiple times. He was one of a kind and also a great dude. Doncic will be the next best one. He is putting up ridiculous numbers in only his second season. Unfortunately, I've lost interest in the NBA. The rivalries have somewhat died (at least on the court), the players are soft, there is too much sitting out....I'd rather watch almost any other pro sport on tv. The exception being I'll tune into some of the playoffs.
