    (2023) - PG Gabe Cupps to INDIANA

    I’ve been watching. Damn Playing against a bunch of D1 talent and three 5*s, and is directly matched up against top 5 UK guard recruit Dillingham. Gabe Cupps is completely outplaying Dillingham in every way. Gabe Cupps is a fantastic, intuitive basketball player. He plays angles, always plays really hard, is always in position to help defensively, always has his eyes up, doesn’t ever try to do too much or make a difficult play when an easy one is available, and is appreciated like crazy by his teammates. Damn His comp? Tyus Jones from Duke, maybe Michael Lewis, but not really a square IU comp; Lewis was way more chippy. Cupps doesn’t really play with sharp elbows.

    Wasn’t hard to follow where this recruitment was going. Bread crumbs where there from the beginning. Clearly woody was hesitant from the start. Interviews early on talked about his relationship with the head coaches but when mentioning IU he mentioned the assistant coaches. Some people questioned early on if IU would push hard and that would come down to the head coaches involvement. They were right. Just follow where the coaches go first during the recruiting periods. Multiple other recruits where higher on the priority list and it showed. Give credit to Sparty for sticking with him through the good and bad( 0 points against Tech). Ton of talent but also ton of unanswered questions moving forward. Wish him the best moving forward. This is one of those situations where the fan bases will probably view this as a bigger loss then the programs that actually recruited him. I’m glad this recruitment is over

    Gotta love Coach Woodson. I am about to play at Ultimate Frisbee Nationals in Denver with an IU Alumni team, and he did a sweet and genuine Cameo for the team. I wish he was our Coach this weekend!

    College Bball Thread

    Walking in Boston with 15 year old son. Near the US Constitution in Charlestown, we see an outdoor basketball court. Me: “I think that’s where Paul Revere and John Adams used to play.” My son: “With Bohannon.”

    Xavier Booker's family should also be aware that speculation by fans happens because fans care about what happens. The fact that fans care a lot? That is the foundation of all of the love, adulation, fame, and NIL/pro development associated with big time college basketball. Family back-and-forthing with fans that speculate is a losing battle and almost never a good idea, even when family doesn't like what some fans say.

    I think the pics are a little gimmicky. The before pics both have arms crossed, while the after pics have the flex arms pose lol.

    Not gonna lie, developed a pretty serious crush on Harris-Smith’s game watching Peach Jam. He was simply the toughest, most competitive kid on the floor in every game I watched.

    I think it’s fine, maybe even a plus to take a home grown low ceiling kid. But taking too many of them at once can really water down a roster. Purdue will have Waddell, Brandon Smith, and Benter at the same time for three years. That’s a lot of low ceiling players to float.

    IUFB Offseason Updates

    My priorities might be askew, but the kid is now my all-time favorite IU QB, or at least since Randle-El.

    If he’s seriously interested in IU, McNeeley needs to be a high, high priority for ‘24. He’s really good and you can do a lot of stuff with him. He’s a complete offensive widget. You could play him as anything from a 4 in a small lineup to the point with a bunch of shooters. A creative coach would kill to have him. He’s almost unique. There’s no IU comp for him that comes to mind. And his pace of play is something to behold. No one speeds him up, ever. Despite being a very good athlete he plays almost languidly, if that’s possible. Really unusual.

    Because he isn’t a lock to be great. He has all the tools but still hasn’t put it all together yet. he will no doubt be good but Duke, KU etc don’t need to gamble on “upside” they can go after other top 20 players that have already put it together and are more of a sure fire thing. I would have been excited for him to come to IU but hoping we get someone else that we are equally or more excited about

    Not to derail a thread, but I remember seeing Leach (when I was a kid) play in a local All-Star game when he was in high school. He posted some crazy 40 pt triple double. I was so pumped that we were getting the next Wilt. My talent scouting service is still available for hire.

    Completely agree. Zeller was dominant from the second he stepped foot on campus. Not sure why people tend to minimize it or forget it? I think maybe part of it is just that he only stayed 2 years, where a guy like Yogi and even TJD now stayed 4 years. I also think what plays into that is we wanted Zeller to be our sort of Tyler Hansbrough or someone similar. Someone that stayed even when he could have left. I really think that is part of it. But regardless, I still think Zeller is the most important, best, whatever you want to call it, player/recruit since the Crean era started.

    Feels like he’s a kid one would hate hate hate to play against. I love that.

    The damdest thing about Dakich bemoaning cancel culture is that he blocks anybody that disagrees with him on Twitter. He's very much a "do as I say, not as I do" type of person. (As most people who complain about cancel culture tend to be) He's a massive hypocrite
