    Yeah I was not that upset about the phone calls as the number of kids he brought in that were not interested in school and more interested in criminal activity

    Both would be good adds and fill holes but it seems we need choir boys (like Brunk) to be true transfer candidates

    What is the scoop on Brooks and Henry?

    The other side of the coin is what is the minimum he needs to be retained? not what I want but what will prevent the AD from making a change. I would say if he gets the team to a sweet 16 he is safely back. He might even be safe in the AD and media’s eyes if we finish in top 5 of the conference but flame out early in the tournament. What if he finishes top 4 of the conference and gets us to the elite 8. I would not be surprised then to start hearing about an extension. A “good” coach can’t recruit if his contract is in its latter years.
  5. Ok this makes more sense from Fish. He just rarely seems to be critical of the current coach. This does not seem as much of an indictment of Archie on Fish’s part even though I agree it is Archies job to build this culture

    It kind of reminds me of Morgan. I was certain he would come back as a senior with the 3 point shot as a weapon but he really did not. As a junior he averaged 1.7 attempts a game and only moved that up to 2.5 as a senior and his % dropped from 30% to 29%. so now we have TJD who really looks to have no interest in that shot. Granted as the center he is down low more but still it makes me wonder if PF or centers taking 3s is a no no in Archies offense
  7. That is interesting. Went to the comments for that tweet and Fish also said he wanted to go down on the floor and set them straight. Fish is rarely critical of the current coach so he may not have been overly critical in this comment but if so that is not good
  8. Maybe the cardboard fans could hold these to help out

    IF the NCAA allows kids to play immediately next year after a transfer AND rumors that Archie is not connecting with the kids he recruits then Dolson may have to act early. A lot of IFs there I know but it is certainly a possibility.

    Thanks for looking this up. I was skeptical but did not have data to confirm my doubts though. Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners mobile app
  11. Used to be able to send a strong message when AH was not very full. Empty balconies and even some lower level seats being empty sent a better signal than booing.

    Crean also had a recruiting momentum drop at the end but I think he could have gotten us back to the sweet 16. He may have done better than that it’s just his down years we’re just as frequent and he could not maintain success.

    The local IU writers seem less supportive than at the end of the Cream days. Not completely blasting Archie but pointing out that a lack of momentum the last 3 years is a hallmark of who we are, Iowa looks like a fluke, nothing new here as Archies Hoosiers cannot maintain momentum. certainly true but in the past some of these guys were hesitant to go negative and lose access.

    Think that shows the admin/AD/donors care about basketball but not sure they can pick a winner well though
  15. I hesitate to give yogi the great leader title. Maybe as a senior but his sophomore and junior years the results were a bit like what we are seeing now right? Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners
