    Interesting : Big Ten Coaches Rank Big Ten Jobs

    I’m saying maybe you keep the existing sides of assembly hall as you can’t build that steep anymore and add elements like hinkle behind the goals. Or maybe you find a happy medium getting as close to hinkle and Phog as possible. From a financial analysis perspective it wouldn’t make sense on paper, but upgrading to something better, yet not Yum center is totally possible Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Its not hard to ask the architects to make what you want.

    IMO a great AD and leader would help build a new arena that was along the lines of Allen Fieldhouse, Hinkle Fieldhouse, Cameron Indoor, the Pit, Assembly Hall, and all the other greats. Not a soulless bland, sterile, antiseptic type arena like the YUM center. Again I'm for a new arena, but not if its like the YUM Center.

    Beilein has agreed to a 5 year deal with the Cavs

    You really think Cool Dad is more intelligent than that? Another poster mentioned he heard IU was never willing to pay Billy more than he was making at OKC. So If you ask literally anyone, they would tell you that we have no chance of landing any coach if we are offering less than they are currently making. So from simple logic, acting like we have a shot at getting billy D by offering him the same or less money is not realistic and would be seen as a smokescreen to most.

    That's the most IU thing I've heard in a while. I know its not the right thread to say this in, but change at the top cannot come soon enough.

    Was IU ever actually in talks with hiring Billy, or was that a smokescreen created by cool dad?

    I wonder how far IU would fall if we ranked administration as well. My guess is our administration (AD, President, etc) would be between 9 and 14.

    (2019) SF Trendon Watford to LSU

    As a person who was at the Rutgers game, we lost because the team didn't even look like we wanted to be playing. It was hands down the worst effort I've ever seen a team give. The last maybe 2 minutes we actually played hard. Had we played hard the whole game and lost I would agree. But to me it was way more of an effort issue than a talent issue.

    Is Archie Miller Better than Mick Cronin?

    Recently my friends were making fun of UCLA hiring Mick Cronin. I thought it was a terrible hire too. However, I've taken a look at Cincinnati's records on Kenpom and they seem like pretty similar to Archie's. Which begs the question. Is Archie a drastically better coach that Mick Cronin? The more research I do, the more it seems that Archie is just a younger more promising Mick Cronin, but not necessarily better at the moment. What are your thoughts?

    Indiana university alternative timeline

    I’ve been thinking about 3 distinct alternative timelines regarding Indiana basketball all starting in 2008: 1. In 2008 Iu doesn’t self report and Kelvin Sampson ends up taking Eric Gordon to the final four and ends up winning a championship with Zeller in 2011-2012 or in 2014-2015 loaded with Indiana guys. 2. Tommy gets fired after his 3rd consecutive losing season and we hire Brad Stevens who takes Zeller in his second year to a national championship. He’s still coaching at IU today and we are back to being a blue blood. 3. We fire Tom Crean after the 2014/2015 campaign and we hire Archie. We give him 5 years to build a program and after next year we let him go to hire Chris Beard (which would be next year. A seamless transition and no rebuild. A bob Knight disciple who runs a similar style as the Hoosier faithful are used to. Bringing us back to blue blood status. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    2019 Off-Season IU Roster News and Moves

    Maybe he was working as hard as possible without seeing playing time. Lets assume he was practicing hard for weeks and didn't see the floor so he started practicing even harder. After all these hard practices he still doesn't see playing time. A good coach will know his players goals and then lay out expectations while guiding them on how they can achieve their goals. It appears that many players on this team didn't agree with what the coach was saying and packed it in. Its almost a classic case of doing poorly in school to punish the parent.

    2019 Off-Season IU Roster News and Moves

    Sometimes players play better in games than they do in practice. It can also be a downward spiral for someone like Jakel that if you're not playing in games, why would you practice harder? I get that if you're not playing you should practice harder to prove yourself. But lets say you practice harder for weeks and still don't see the court, its so easy to give up. Especially when you see players that you think you're better than end up playing ahead of you. It totally makes sense if he gave up and was negative about the entire situation, didn't like the coaching and then drug other players down to his level. Its easy to see multiple players upset at the coaching decisions and acting out behind closed doors or in the locker room when the coach isn't around. From a coaching standpoint, if you only have Fitzner for 1 year and you have Jake for 4, wouldn't it make more sense to play your freshman more to give them that experience so they can contribute more effectively in year 2 and 3? Especially during the 12 game skid... I get everyone's viewpoint, but from the outside looking in, I just don't get why we would make excuses. It reminds me of 2012-2013 when Cody Zeller won the 3pt contest in Hoosier Hysteria and then Crean refused to let him shoot it from outside. A lot of people on sites like this said the same things defending Archie this year as they did Crean. Then in 2015 Wisconsin (with a similar team) let Kamisky shoot the 3 whenever he was open and was feeling it. I'm having flashbacks to the Crean years when everyone was making excuses after excuses defending the coach... Full disclosure is that I think we should Fire Archie for Chris Beard; and knowing that will never happen; I think he should get next year to prove himself. But to call questionable coaching decisions anything other than questionable coaching decisions is anything but helpful when we are trying to resurrect the program and take it back to greatness.

    Fire Fred Glass

    First this is a thread where we can complain about the idiot administration. Glass is not an AD, he’s a lawyer who know what he’s doing. His body of works says as such. He will never get another AD job in the entire world after IU. His administration is worse than 1930’s Germany when it comes to censorship in the media. He’s made 2 wrong decisions to keep Crean and then made a questionable coaching fire and then hire with football. Second, we can all vote for Brian Davidson for BOT as he is running on a sports first platform. That’s what we can do about it Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app
