    Luke Murray is a star. He would be the best choice here

    IU Basketball News and Notes

    The Kentucky search did a really good job of grounding me, as far as the expectations we should have. The sport has changed a ton. If Kentucky couldn’t land anyone bigger than Mark Pope, we should probably temper expectations when the time comes.

    (2025) SG - Braylon Mullins

    These recent offers will likely change the calculus with Mullins, no?

    This all feels like we’re going to need more than $6m.

    What? Really? That seems like it would be seismic.

    I’m with you here. Never got excited when watching his film. Conwell would be a much better get but that seems like it’s a pipe dream.

    This sounds like “she doesn’t like the big ones bc they hurt.”……. But yeah. You’re probably right.

    Lifelong Pacers fan here. I don’t care if the entire 2013 Indiana Hoosiers roster played for the Knicks….. I’d have to root for them to lose.

    Someone has to find lightning in a bottle with one of these lower profile guys. Let’s hope it’s not Michigan.

    He shot poorly on guarded 3’s but actually shot over 40% on unguarded 3’s. He has the potential to shoot it from deep. Can get better. Really good lead guard. Pair him with Conwell and we're cooking. Still think Mgbako playing the 3 is a mistake. Karaban from UConn basically the same player and UConn plays him at the 4.

    Tracy’s going to parlay a UK negotiation into Brad being commissioner of the NBA.

    It’s really on the player. The staff and program need to have the resources available to players who are willing to put in the work. Victor Oladipo often was in the gym well before and after the rest of his teammates. Some guys do the bare minimum and do not take advantage of the resources available. All of the players have keys to Cook Hall 24/7. I don’t believe it’s the coaches responsibility to develop the players skill. Obviously he can help with matters but it’s his responsibility to establish a culture that extra work is required. You have to earn your role every single day. Then scout, identify, and recruit players that fit that program culture. Dan Hurley is the best at this in cbb right now and it shows. Guy has an absolute machine going right now and I don’t see it stopping unless an NBA team steals him away.

    Wayne…. We are way past getting our crap in order. We are so far behind. We have $5m-$6m in NIL, tons of playing time, and a total of 6 roster spots. We’ve not landed a single portal prospect yet. We have so much ground to make up, on so many levels. the window of opportunity to get back in the conversation with the other blueblood’s is closed. We aren’t even the flagship program in our state anymore. Money is not going to fix our problems. So many programs have the money to match and so much more to offer. Indiana Men’s Basketball will never get their **** together. I’ve never been more sure of anything in my life.

    I used to have that same belief. But this is national sentiment amongst the majority of cbb and I’d assume that’s the case with coaches, since we cannot seem to attract top tier coaching talent.

    Whether you agree with this or not, this is what the IU administrations have done to this program. This is national perception and it’s infuriating.
