    Fire. Archie. Miller.

    been MIA for awhile as my wife and I welcomed a new member to our family. Not sure what has been more exhausting though, a newborn baby or IU basketball. But anyway..... fire him, sadly.

    IU MVP vs Minnesota

    Jerome Hunter for me. IMO he didn’t shoot enough! Nobody should end a game shooting 100% from 3. Shoot until you miss Jerome! And then keep shooting. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners
  5. He has been on BTN a long time and writes for sporting news. He is one of the best college basketball writers IMO. But yeah his bracketology is subpar. Think this is like his second year doing it Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

  8. Oregon is not just a Nike school, they are THE Nike school. The founder of Nike (Phil knight) is an Oregon alum. They don’t have a deal with under armor and never have. Phil knight is a major reason the Oregon football program has become what it is because of the relationship between Nike and the school. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    per usual, you are lost. But thanks for the entertainment
  11. I will always remember Crean's final game at Northwestern as the infamous "holding up signs" game. That was the lowest point and most embarrassed I think I felt of his tenure. This game wasn't much prettier, but will take the W.

    Yeah the Michigan athletic department had a positive test of the new variant in one of the programs. It wasn't men's basketball, but the health department shut down the entire athletic department for at least 2 weeks. Pretty crazy stuff.
  13. No you did not, but another poster said "Collins could coach Archie into the fetal position." That's when I went off.
  14. I am aware of this. I will still call it out, thanks.

    I think you may be mistaken. It has nothing to do with their program. The state health department shut them down. There were no positive cases within their program.
  16. Yes that was another well designed play to get an easy basket when it was needed. The Rob issue is twofold, he seems to really play well at the end of games even when he is struggling. So I personally don't know what I would do in that situation. But I agree he doesn't deserve the minutes he got last night or has been getting.
  17. Not when a macro issue is free throw shooting? That has nothing to do with in-game coaching. Literally nothing. And i am going to give Archie praise when he deserves it, and last night at the end of the game he deserves it. Not for what he has done the four years as a whole. NOBODY but you has said we are excited! nobody. This was brought up because people were saying Collins outcoached Archie, when that couldn't be farther from the freaking truth. Just baffling how biased people are.
  18. And that stat has nothing to do with end game coaching. That stat has to do with a macro issue of the program.
  19. There's a difference between Archie's tenure as a whole and his in-game coaching last night. He was great last night despite his team not being great. TJD and Rob were horrendous. I strongly believe Archie's coaching overcame that last night. But yes IU as a whole under Archie is a different story.
  20. Al was wide open until Armaan fumbled the ball. Great play design knowing that Armaan was going to get doubled and a fake ball screen would leave Al wide open. So disagree with you majorly there. Armaan had a wide open three out of a time out in the first over time coming off a pin down. Go back and look. Northwestern didn't get a shot off at the end of regulation because IU correctly fouled three times with fouls to give and then got a turnover. That's end of the game coaching. IU correctly fouled up three with time running out in the second overtime. Please take off your Archie hating glasses and realize his end game coaching was actually really good.
  21. I actually think you have it backwards with regard to Collins. He has I think 5 top 150 guys on his roster (Nance and Kopp both in top 100) and Audige who was a pretty highly sought after transfer. He has the talent, he just can't coach a team to win close games. They showed it last year and again this year. Heck his best team failed to make the tournament and flopped majorly in a terrible big ten. Archie has been disappointing, but his coaching down the stretch last night was actually about as good as it gets. This team got open look after open look at the end of the game and out of time outs. Northwestern did not. I will agree with Chris007 on this one.

    Bracketology and Team Resumes

    Jumped 3 spots to 45 in the NET. Resume: Quad 1: 2-7 Quad 2: 5-0 Quad 3: 2-1 Quad 4: 2-0 Also IU has a good road/neutral record at 6-4. If only they didn’t stink at home this team would be alright. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners
  23. It will be quad 2. They’re a quad 3 loss since we played them at home. Different tiers for home vs away. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app
  24. Well I certainly jinxed TJD. He sucks tonight. So does rob. So does Archie. So does IU. Woof Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners
  25. What is the terrible stat that was brought up after the Rutgers game? IU is like 2-9 or 2-10 following a win over a ranked team? Well they get their 3rd win today. Trayce goes for 30!
