    Coaching Candidate Thread

    Doesn’t smile, which doesn’t bother me, but it’s noticeable. I joke with my wife all the time that it looks like he absolutely hates Mike Roberts. Who oddly also only sits the entire game, yells and smack his clipboard.

    Coaching Candidate Thread

    Seeing other programs take a chance with unproven big names and alumni, it appears to be working out for Michigan and others at this point. A very close comparison to Howard would be Calbert Cheaney for us...Howard only had 6 years NBA assistant experience before getting the gig. Calbert was at St. Louis, the g-league and now with the pacers. If you want a players coach, someone who can talk the talk (all American, long NBA career) and coaching experience at both levels, it would be him. I understand it would be a gamble, but he seems like a choice that could please the fan base that wants an IU guy, relate with these young kids and hopefully bring some excitement to the program. Thoughts?

    IUBB vs Stanford - 12/2/20 @ 1:30 on ESPN

    I've had to mute it...I don't understand how ESPN thinks this is suitable for a basketball game. Completely takes away from the viewing pleasure and makes it almost unwatchable.

    IUBB vs Texas - 12/1/20 @ 1:30 on ESPN

    I think that is what has gotten to me. A buddy of mine texted me after the game and said "if today weren't so similar to what we have seen over the past several seasons, I wouldn't be so worried", which I think is what a lot of us are feeling.

    IUBB vs Texas - 12/1/20 @ 1:30 on ESPN

    I truly hope he becomes a solid 4 year player, but I have always had serious doubts if he was as good as his ranking and able to play in the big ten. Had the chance to watch him multiple times in highschool, have talked with a couple people close to both IU and South, and I think his minutes so far reflect where he is currently at. Coming into today he'd played 11 minutes over 3 games. Again, before people jump down my throat, he is young and I hope he continues to grow. I just dont see his minutes increasing in year 1 for him.

    To be fair, I wouldn't say the Friars are a below average team. They were only 10 spots behind us in the NET going into our game and picked to finish 3rd in their league. Not saying they are great, but better than below average.

    Year 1: No shooters Year 2: No shooters Year 3: No shooters Year 4: No shooters Weird, similar results each season. As Bill Walton would say, "Someone needs to tell Archie he needs to recruit someone who can shoot the ball"

    New Assistant Coach Hire Candidates

    I'm not saying Rangland wouldn't be a good hire, but I honestly had no idea who he was prior to someone mentioning his name. Now I'm also not enough of a basketball junkie to know if my lack of knowing him means anything, but is he a well respected and potentially sought after hire? Looking at his resume, he has the experience, but not necessarily a big name/home run hire from what I can see. In peoples opinion, would this be a home run hire?

    Coronavirus and Sports Only - PLEASE and THANK YOU

    Pete Thamel just tweeted that a Big Ten spokesman confirmed that "No vote has been held by our presidents or chancellors". So....maybe they leaked that news, saw the backlash and said nopppee haha. Or they thought other leagues would immediately follow suit, and are holding off until they do.

    A Transfer Coming?

    I would love nothing more than for Damezi to be able to come off the bench play solid defense and average 4-6 points.

    Emmitt Holt

    Went down a YouTube rabbit hole yesterday, and actually was able to pull up some Jurkin highlights from his time at ETSU. Had some solid games his senior year against Kentucky, Xavier, ended up avg. 7 pts per game. More than I ever thought that he would.

    Emmitt Holt

    Crazy story...I hated so much how his story ended here, as you could just see the potential that he had. On another note, Hanner was the gift that kept on giving...did he end up playing pro ball somewhere?

    College Bball Thread

    The NCAA will announce a resuming of the season, slap us with infractions and then re-cancel the season the following hour....
  14. Saw where he tweeted that he was suspended for missing curfew prior to the Minnesota game.
