    Lineup Changes?

    Hahaha it makes for some very interesting outside-of-the-box considerations, and without shaking things up completely it would be difficult to discover revolutionary concepts that might actually work. The food for thought is much appreciated. I did want to riff on Kaulie a little in the hope of a good natured laugh because the opportunity seemed there for the taking hehe. Thx for asking Brum to run it. Can't wait to see what we learn from this. Maybe we are on to something really big this time.

    Lineup Changes?

    Just for conversation sake, how does this lineup differ from your favorite 2021-22 'all-the-hotties-on-the-floor-at-the-same-time' lineup? And if your 'all hottie' lineup turns out to be a little different from this offering, could we please put your 'all hottie' lineup in the simulator too, just to be sure we dot all the i's and cross all the t's? This is pretty important business.

    IUBB @ Nebraska - 1/17/22 @ 6:00 ET on BTN

    I hope the addition by subtracting Stephen Bardo from the equation is not the only positive aspect of this game for IU. We need a win now!

    PC Stellar Indiana at Nebraska sim

    Even with the odds against IU losing this one, this one seems entirely losable. That said, if IU loses this one on the road we should all be thoroughly prepared to really cr@p our pants good this time, am I right?
  5. OT but don't ya hate it when you look at a statue of an icon who always seemed like sort of an old man to you growing up until you reach an age when the icon begins to appear young to you? It really hits when a guy like Abe Lincoln begins to look like sort of a younger guy to you. If you are not there yet, wait, and I guess hope you live to see the day! And if you can relate, it is not so bad to know it could be worse, assuming it is worse to never live to know the feeling! Ah, the blessings..., and the wisdom it takes to ponder such high thoughts lol.

    (2022) - PF Kaleb Banks to INDIANA

    So probably going to take the usual strength/conditioning buildup to bring Banks up to the strength/skill level needed to become a difference maker on the floor in the Big 10.

    Serious Question

    It can get really predictably annoying to the nth degree to read the "fire woodson," "fie on x, and y, and z too while we are at it," "we'll never amount to anything good" posts that follow every loss. It's almost like a fan team exercise now to become hyperbolically negative after IU losses and to compete with other IU fans to see who can be the most consistently and/or creatively negative fan, sometimes even just repeating the same negative points over and over like unpaid negative campaign ads in loops lol. Some posts appear to be arbitrarily cut and pasted into threads both randomly and also with carefully deliberate purpose as well hahaha. I'm not even sure if many of these posts are a sickness or a cure, or both, or neither anymore. Thanks for bringing this point up. I think the point is worth pondering at times, especially in the third week of January when months of lack of proper levels of natural sunlight can take their toll on the psyche of even the mentally strongest of fans in the community of fans lol.

    (2022) - PF Kaleb Banks to INDIANA

    So, to put Banks in terms IU fans could understand, would it be right to say Banks is Watfordlike with Watford type expectations? Or would that be giving Banks' shot too much credit? Obviously Banks and Watford are not the same two people simply separated by 10ish years age alone. Is Banks a guy who could step in as a freshman and make a difference for an IU team most likely losing TJD after this year's season is over? What if Race Thompson stays? Could Indiana actually field a competitive front court in the Big 10 anchored by Race and Geronimo with Duncomb and Banks backing up in underclassmen roles? Minus Jackson-Davis and Thompson, would IU's front court become nearly unanimous picks to become one of the worst front court units in the league next year? Eager for comparisons, is Banks Derrick Elston 2.0?

    All cheerleaders love Duncomb, but cheerleaders with mullets love him the most.
