    A Case for Dusty May

    Doubtful. But if any major program goes after him the buy-out won't be an issue. It's $1.5M dropping to $1M next month. FAU contract

    I hate that we are in this position, but I agree. My wife summed it up well last night when she asked me if I was sure that they really practice between games.

    But you mean just one of those guys, and then only if McNeeley leaves after a year, right? I'm pretty sure there is a standard clause in IU bball coach contracts banning them from having multiple outside threats on the roster in any given season.

    2023-24 IUFB Transfer Portal

    I don't follow many college football teams, so I'm just asking. Roughly what percentage start any given season with multiple 'proven' QBs on their roster?

    Coach Curt Cignetti to INDIANA

    That's good to hear. Especially as it relates to opponents attempting (aka completing) big plays against our D, I would describe our past culture as one of "surprise!" :)

    (2024) PF - Derik Queen to Maryland

    Is it too greedy to add "2. An above average natural shooter to compliment, or at least back up Liam, so that we can (gulp) have what every other power conference team has, being multiple outside weapons"?

  8. I should have clarified that I was referencing the national press stories. Any yes, I used the term "unstoppable beast" to point out the drama that I am seeing in those stories, which is indeed hyperbolic. As Chris just noted, some of them fail to even mention the fact that Kent State also has an opponent, and thus needs to show up too if they hope to win. I believe we are in agreement otherwise.
  9. If IU plays to its potential this manufactured drama about Kent State being an unstoppable beast, as evidenced by their three most notable losses, will vanish quicker than the blink of an eye. Go Hoosiers!

    (2023) - G Lenee Beaumont to INDIANA

    Parrish won it in 2019.https://www.indystar.com/story/sports/high-school/2022/03/09/ashlynn-shade-named-gatorade-indiana-basketball-player-year/9438050002/
  11. I'm pretty sure you are confusing concepts. On the men's side an adjustment on offense, for example, is what occurs with less than five seconds left on the shot clock. Say we are running a three-man weave well beyond the top of the key and it's going great with lots of energetic running, side-to-side passes and defenders who seem perfectly content to let us continue along. But suddenly one of our players realizes that the shot clock is about to expire. Crap! He "adjusts" by urgently turning his attention towards the basketball goal to see what if anything we can do to get a shot up in time. Adjustment accomplished!

    IUBB @ Minnesota - Wednesday, 1/25/23 @ 9:00 ET on BTN

    I'm in the 'take the win' camp. But yes, substitutions (mostly lack thereof) were the biggest issue for me. Hopefully that will be a strong point of emphasis for the coaching staff if Woody misses another game.
  13. I agree with the other comments. Geary brings size but she seems tentative, whereas Browne brings a ton of energy and hustle. I'm not sure I would call one better than the other. I think when Browne is back it will come down to what we need in a given moment.
  14. I can't recall experiencing such a compact/consistent IU sports fix. Starting this past Monday and on eight consecutive days: MBB, WBB, MSOC, MBB, WBB, FB (gulp), MSOC, WBB
