    milehiiu has passed away.

    wow. how terrible. so sad to hear. it's like losing any other IU legend. it's a big loss. thanks for the many great memories, mile, and thanks for the several board legacies you helped to create. hard to imagine an IU sports message board experience without you. peace and love.

    Indiana MBB 20-21 Rotation Discussion

    Durham Lander Phinisee or Hunter Smith Jackson-Davis I think those are the guys who are going to start and get the most minutes, then Franklin Brunk Thompson in no particular order rotate in/out and then let's see if one of the other freshmen is able to crash the party. I think the most likely candidates to do so are in this order Geronimo because of the defense, motor, mindset and overall measurables and athletic ability Leal if he can shoot from jump and if we still need shooting because nobody else on the team got better at shooting over the offseason. Galloway if most of our guys are lost and don't know what they are doing and Galloway has the bb iq he is supposed to be coming in with. Is the staff still looking to add a shooter to the mix, a one year grad transfer? Might as well pickup that insurance policy imo. It does not cost much if the guy is a one year player and we still have the scholly for 2021. I like this team a lot, and think we should be able to compete. I like that the end of our bench looks like someone in that bunch could possibly be a band-aid w/o getting completely slaughtered if/when we need a band-aid for a short time. I also like that we are not counting on the freshmen not named Lander to be ready to fill a lot of important minutes. If one or two of those guys breakout and show they belong, then that is gravy this year, not the meat and potatoes.

    2020 General Recruiting Thread

    Without delving into it yet to back my following statement up with facts, on first glance it appears to this IU fan that Illinois has made it back into the pros after a significant absence.

    I remember some people trashing the 2010 class pretty good in 2010.

    2020 June AAU Action

    I do not see this coming to fruition.
  7. If he can't win it then nobody can? I mean, he's gonna die anyway, so who cares, right?
  8. glad we got to see the football players. that was cool. omg would have sucked so bad if after our football team finally beats nebraska if their football players had beaten our basketball team.. wow that could have sucked real bad.
  9. Hoiberg's not on the bench, right?
  10. OK so Hoiberg has the coronavirus. Did he give it to Katz then in the pre-game interview? That was Katz, right? I am so confused.
  11. I want to see the football players. Come on, man.
  12. I don't see the NCAA cancelling/suspending the tournament. But of course I never thought I would see Chicago cancel the dyeing of the river and all 3 St Patrick's Day parades. (Side note: the awesome priest at Old St Pat's here was so proud of being named the Grand Marshall of the downtown parade, he mentioned it in his homily last Sunday, probably at every service because he got stuck doing all the masses last week lol. They have like 10ish services on Sundays.)
  13. When was the last time we were ahead of a team by 20 points? Remember when we always went ahead of every team by 20 points? It was just a matter of time?
  14. "What were you talking about with the refs at the end of the half?" Pause. "Pleasantries"
  15. I like Archie's press game lately. "Pleasantries."
