    That and the locker room upgrades were really big accomplishments by Archie

    2023 General Recruiting Thread (BBall)

    Sounds like they liked us even before Archie called. “We just like Indiana, just in general, just the brand, and the name and the program,” Fears, Jr.’s father Jeremy Fears, Sr. told The Daily Hoosier. “The Big Ten, it’s close to home, the atmosphere is electric, especially when they are having a ton of success, just the history behind it, the tradition and everything. To be honest we just kind of liked Indiana from the jump, even before they started recruiting us.”

    One could argue that Miller was responsible for Parker and Logan but one could also argue that Miller staying would have led to TJD and Geronimo, at a minimum leaving. We could have been in a Georgia like (doubt it would have been as bad but could have been similar) situation had Miller still been here. The portal was definitely friendly to us and helped make the quick infusion happen but it also shows that the right guy can turn a program around quickly.
  4. Good info. While it would be great to add a guy who could be a threat inside right off the bat, we really need depth at that position. If TJD, or LD have any foul trouble or injuries we need another true center.

    Any idea what tickets would cost for the championship Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners mobile app
  6. Anyone see a better article about where he has been and what he has done. I see some of the names he has worked with but was he working directly with them as a trainer, as an assistant somewhere?

    Minnesota's struggles post Pitino leaving are where I wonder if folks like Goodman thought we might be heading with his who do you think you are comments. The Gophers may have been right in moving on from Pitino but took a risky move in hiring their coach and it may be a long time before we know if it was the right move. Indiana, on the other hand, may have take a slightly risky hire with Woodson but with the resources we have placed around him (Matta, Fife, Hunter and Yasir) combined with his own style have allowed him some early success. I think we as fans expected the success could happen with resources and the right person leading and hopefully on-court results will follow.

    IUBB 2021 General Off-Season Thread

    Justin was planning to come in June already right? Am I thinking of the right guy. Is he coming earlier now
  11. That may be true after a bit but initially most of this board felt we had the best staff in college Bball. I certainly like this staff but I think we tend to get too excited as fans and forget we were just as excited about the guys we now think we’re the opposite
  12. Why do you think that? Sure this last year was no fun but why do you think the other coaches we have had weren’t initially pretty excited to be here.

    I loved those warm bread subs the Convenience mart used to make. Baked bread daily, fresh deli meat, a soda and that little bit of chocolate candy thrown in all for $3.29 I think. When I was working at the HT and finishing school I would swing in there for lunch before class a couple times a week at least. And if i could not afford the sub you could get a bag of great popcorn for 50 cents. Do they still make their own bread and subs on site?

    And trust Woodson who seems to be universally loved by players he has coached.

    Next Year’s Roster

    I think it would be cool to see how the returning players shoot from outside simply based on having more freedom and encouragement to shoot. During the summer they should improve based on practice but I have this feeling that they would shoot better than last year just because of the change in philosophy.
