IU Hoosier41

(2019) SF Trendon Watford to LSU

Recommended Posts

The cameo someone got from CWat had me thinking. What if 5,000 IU fans ordered cameos from CWat for little bros commitment. Would that violate any NCAA rules? It’s technically paying for a service. However, I could see the NCAA hammering us if we admitted CWat played at IU and we paid for them.

Maybe Archie could just pay for a Cameo every day for as long as His bro plays

I'm a skeptic.  This whole recruitment just doesn't feel right.

 

Well yeah; that’s certainly true.

But still. :92:

Sounds like Trendon's home visit went well. Christian says they are planning to visit IU. 

Perhaps the plan to visit IU is the catalyst for the cancelled Jordan Brand announcement, and it not being televised is just a convenient reasoning.

I would never fire an assistant to get a recruit but if one were leaving anyway I would give Watford a shot. 

 

Sean Miller is due to be hired at Southwestern East State Tech and will probably need an assistant with the ability to teach the stretch four position!  :)

We would get the death penalty.

I know how you feel, but we've had some recruitments that felt rather right that didn't pan out, so I'm all for riding this one out while hoping for the best.

That reason seemed like a little suspect to me, especially coming right after we had an in-home visit. Could always just be a coincidence, but maybe not.

Of course. C'mon we were never really a serious consideration, but things have happened as of late. Now teams ahead of us have some unanswered questions. We're a comfortable safety net. He knows what he has in Bloomington already. Fall baby, fall!

Hmm would be interesting way around that little rule. Sean hire the relatives of Archie’s recruits and vice versa. Then no need to make them one of the 3 assistants.

Couple of Crystal Ball flips from Memphis to LSU, including Jerry Meyer. Certainly influenced by Will Wade reinstatement today, but still makes you wonder... how does a family look at what’s out there on Wade/LSU and think - yeah, let’s send the boy there - that’s the coach I want to be a role model for my son!

For every shady coach there are probably 100 shady kids and families. Not saying the watfords are, but there are a lot of them that don’t care and actually likely are in on it with him

It's Romeo's recruitment all over again isn't it?

Interesting. I know he will be the guy at LSU since their whole team is gone but will they be any good next year?? I feel like they are next years Arizona.

How many times has it looked like we led for a recruit only for another school to nab him at the last second.  Lets be that "another school" this time lol

Can’t remember the last time we legit led and had another’s school just swooped  

Brooks seemed to just be because Cal had eyes on other players he missed on. Which means did we really lead?
