    Coaching Candidate Thread

    Best coach that could be had, regardless of baggage. But you’re right yes. We’re a dying program. Who wants to come here that’s proven? Guys like Beard and Bennet have proven you don’t need to come to pressure cookers like IU to win. At this point, we’ll be gambling on an up and comer to right the ship. Terrifying to think about for a program that used to be so coveted.

    Unrealistic and would never happen, but who I would really want? Pitino. IU would never but he would win here. Convince me otherwise

    I might stop following IU athletics if this comes to fruition. Dolson a fan?

    This thread is going to be 100% relevant and I feel like fans are lying to themselves if they think different. We all see the slow death coming. Beard is #1 for me but honestly I just want something different at this point. Can it really get any worse?

    At this point is it even a question? We’ll be waiting the next year and a half for the inevitable change. Just another day in the life. Don’t expect us to be good for years again. Sad state of affairs.

    I’m on the train. Fire him. Next year is going to be a lot worse.
  9. As of right now, and it pains me to say this, I’d put us 12th. Only teams I actually see us better than are PSU and Nebraska. Apathy at an all time high for me
  10. As many others have said, Trey is number 1 and it isn’t even close. A second would be Race because he doesn’t ever really make bad plays. TJD would be third, but in his career so far he hasn’t come up with winning plays in the end. Had a chance last night and air balled. He needs to develop his post game and outside shot significantly. AF is WAY too loose with the ball and his passing is extremely suspect. Love his scoring game, but his passing needs a significant upgrade. Nobody else on the roster deserves a mention tbh and that’s concerning.
  11. About the same. Our Defense is pretty good but we have zero shooters/creators on the roster. Lander can get there, possibly Leal? This will be the downfall of Archie, IMO. Guard recruiting has been subpar outside of Lander for this team and we have zero shooters coming in next year. You cannot be elite without really solid guards in today’s game. Can anyone look at this roster and say our ceiling is more than a fringe top 25 team? How about next year? I’ve wanted to like Archie so bad, but I’m trying to be realistic. His roster construction will be his downfall and ultimately he’ll be gone in a year or 2. No, this was not based on today’s game, but on patterns forming over the past 3 years. Hope I’m wrong
  12. It’s Creighton unless this visit just blows him away, which it won’t because IU’s compliance department is a joke. I’m happy overall with recruiting but this class is about to be a big whiff. Really baffles me why we didn’t cast a wider net for recruiting. Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy with Duncomb and Lander, but we need a versatile forward so bad and we focused on 2 guys the entire time. Not good
  13. They never knew. Important to take every source with a grain of salt
