    Word is out of workouts is that Stewart is the best shooter on the team and it’s not even close. This was my assumption when he committed and now he’s showing it in organized activities.

    Some notes from practice from a friend who was able to be present for a couple of them: 1: Practices are much faster than with Archie. Don’t think that was very hard to do. It’s an all-out run for much of scrimmage. NBA-style. 2. Woodson is bodying up players and shooting during practice. Archie very rarely did this. Crean never did. 3. Woodson talks in third person even in practice. 4. Coaches have a much looser relationship with players. Cursing the same amount… but laughing about it together after. He demands attention from players much more than Archie did. 5. Miller Kopp is “Zach McRoberts who can actually shoot very well”. 6. Tamar Bates may not be as ready as early as some hope. Still early though with time to grow. 7. End of bench looks to be Leal, Galloway, Duncomb right now. 8. Xavier Johnson is THAT dude. Impressive and determined. That’s all I got although I’m sitting on a bit of info that I’m not able to share yet regarding staffing. Would be insanely cool if it came to fruition.

    Didn't hear the interview... but if Dakich thinks the program hasn't done anything for him, then that is truly mind blowing. After he graduated high school, he literally spent the next 16 years of his life attending and then working for Indiana University. Dakich's coaching career, his radio show, and his job at ESPN all happened because of those 16 years he spent in Bloomington. If he really doesn't think Indiana did anything for him, then he needs his head examined.

    Trying something new. Instead of posting the rankings in the individual recruit year threads, I'm posting all of them in one spot. If nothing else, as the ranking sources update, I hope it will be easier to follow the changes in an individual recruit's rank. And a couple of program notes. It's pretty obvious that a number of kids with '22 offers are no longer on the radar and not being pursued but until they're officially off the board I'll track their ranking. The category I captioned Players of Interest are names that have very recently been mentioned and/or are players we know the staff watched at the June events and it certainly doesn't imply those are the only prospects we're following. 2022 OFFERS Avg. 247 Top 150 - 06.30.21 ESPN Top 100 @ 06.30.21 Rivals Top 150 - 06.16.21 Zion Cruz 23 18 31 19 Ernest Udeh 63 22 53 115 Jalen Washington 24 25 21 26 Jalen Hood-Schifino 31 27 34 32 Vincent Iwuchukwu 28 32 22 29 Julian Phillips 29 36 30 21 Kyle Filipowski 36 40 20 48 Tyrell Ward 53 52 62 45 A.

    Two other things I’ve heard is Xavier is showing he’s a leader by really pushing Rob & Lander. Also Bates has shown he can play, and coaches have been impressed with how well he is picking things up.

    College Bball Thread

    My understanding is that even though Indiana has not passed legislation yet it should not adversely affect our recruiting and ability to move forward with our well-planned NIL program. Essentially after getting slam-dunked on by the Supreme Court 9 - 0 ruling the NCAA has said an athlete’s amateur status will not be threatened by NIL participation regardless of state laws. They said if it’s allowed in 7 states by statute as far as they are concerned it is good to go in all states so as not to provide competitive advantage. They do not plan to penalize schools or athletes for NIL participation.

    2021 Transfer Portal

    Twin brothers Cameron and Zameron Boozer (former Duke player Carlos' sons) are both transferring from Jacksonville. They aren't very good, but think about how Zameron feels when they gave his brother a real name and left him with a made up one just because it rhymed with Cameron.

    Once this staff starts winning on the court IU should never lose another recruit to PU again. Drove around their campus for the first time tonight and wow. That place didn’t disappoint my very low expectations I already had lol.

    I always assumed @Stuhoo was masquerading as a second Btown Banner's member @Chris007 but today I actually met the man, the myth, the legend that is Chris! Good running into you and chatting a bit.

    With a 1:1 A:TO ratio as a PG, not sure KL's decision making can be trusted. The look a little dry to me.

    The only harm it will do is cause me to unfollow nearly every college athlete on my Twitter feed.

    (2022) - PF Kyle Filipowski to Duke

    Sounds like IU isn’t going down without a fight. They are continuing to recruit Filip even though Duke and Syracuse seem to be in the lead.
