What you think? Absolutely not. If I did, I wouldn't have the history of posting things I do. Again, you can think whatever you want.

About your "reputation". And yes, about what I think. My arguments against some of your posts seem to draw some real long-winded and sassy responses.

A reachh at best and very different context.  But keep trying.  It's cute.

Impressive really to contradict yourself in the same thread within 24 hours.

It's almost as if your posts are reactionary, lacking in all consistency, and just trying to "win" against people having a discussion. Hmmmm...

Oooh...I like "sassy."  That's a compliment.    Thank you.

I have always thought we would lose 4 guards, Newkirk, RoJo, Jones and one more. Either Durham or Green

I would hate to lose Durham or Green but there is something about Durham I like.  You can tell (or at least it appears) he loves being a Hoosier!

I would argue he found one.   In 9 years.  And that kid was at DeMatha (not exactly hidden) with a better work ethic than most of the world.  

Lot of others wore jerseys and made contributions of one kind or another; but most flamed miserably.

Agree

If that happens (assuming we don't get Romeo) I'll drop my already moderate expectations for next season. I understand neither Green nor Durham are irreplaceable but only having 2 scholarship guards (one a freshman) is not a recipe for success. 

There are always grad transfers, and the Sanford kid sounds promising and all, but that should be a complimentary piece, not to fill a glaring deficiency. 

**sigh** I get tired of the constant doom and gloom, but it's discouraging to think it could easily be 2-3 yrs before IU is where we want it.

But, Rob Phinisee, Romeo Langford, either Durham or Green, and a guy like Sanford would be a fantastic guard rotation. And, as much as I'm a fan of RoJo, that would be a huge overall upgrade.

Aw man, I hate hearing you say that. Hope it's neither, but I'm more willing to lose Durham than Green...

I hope it's neither too. Just a gut feeling I had at the beginning of the season.

I feel the same too. With what he have coming it we will land a grad transfer and/or Romeo. I can't see those two getting as much PT as they have this year. It's the nature of the game.

Green is going to get time next year, so will Durham. I see no reason for either to transfer if that’s what they’re worried about.

Now if they aren’t sure about system/fit moving forward, that’s a different discussion to have. Green is the odd man out as far as “system” goes and how he plays.

Green needs a coach that is tough on him. If he went to St. John's and was given the keys he'd have a few stellar games but many more that were "meh." I really believe that an offseason of film and maturing Green could be a difference maker for IU next season.

I agree and hopefully he sees it that way
