    (2024) - Liam McNeeley

    Just bumped into KHunter at the airport in FL. He was at the game recruiting last night. Also….SUPER nice guy. Chatted with me casually. Very approachable. I’m like a super insider now.

    IUBB at Xavier - Friday, 11/18/22 @ 6:00 on FS1

    Don't forget what happened when we went up 9...the zebras showed up. "Technical foul" on Reneau, which was total BS and VERRRRRY soft, which turned into a 5 point swing. 2 free throws and a 3. How about the Xavier scream and stare down after the alley-oop? No technical on Xavier? How about the kid who fouled out looking at the ref and saying "That's F***ing Bulls**t". No tech. How about 5 minutes in to the second half, Xavier is fouling IU like crazy...7 fouls to 1 if I recall correctly. 2 minutes later...IU has 7 fouls. We beat Xavier, at Xavier, and we beat the officials that called the game. The zebras let Xavier back into it, and I don't really care what you think of my one sided opinion!! That was some home cookin'.

    I have some serious crimson goggle syndrome going on. IU is a 3 point favorite according to KenPom, and a 1 point dog according to Torvik. We outmatch Xavier at every position, and some in our 2nd squad. I see a victory with a somewhat sizable margin. Tell me I'm crazy....

    Fire Tom Allen

    We'll see if Dolson is willing to own his mistake(s). I bought into the hype as LEO was growing as many of us did, and we had our remarkable season which ended in a VERY poor coaching decision that cost us a bowl win. That said, it's over and we're headed down a very dark path. If you think this year feels bad, wait until next year...and the year after...with very limited recruits coming in and likely a flood of players entering the portal. We won't win a single B1G game next year. Tell me I'm wrong. IU Football has been a great love of mine since I was young. We always had season tickets and drove from 3.5 hours away for every home game. I'm 44, so I got to see some great years with AT and Randel El coming to mind. But that's not who Indiana Football is now. Very simply stated, we're cheap. We seem to think it's ok to remain a true loser program, yet there's a major disconnect. First, the fans don't like it at all - they're/we're fed up. And second, we're leaving SO much revenue on the table by being a bottom-feeding program. Step up, pay for a proven winner and fix it. Get your guy, pay him big for 3 years then re-up BIG. Go find a former NFL player and/or proven coach that can speak to recruits, and don't put a cap on his recruiting budget. Deion Sanders. Urban Meyer (red flags, I know, but if given the opportunity...) or someone with a similar profile. Then, look back at how much more financially stable the entire athletic program is. This is not an opinion. We need to quit this nonsense with embracing being losers. I'm cranky! Feedback is welcome if you support my logic! HA~!

    Started a podcast... Finally.

    Get Moye on as a guest. One of the best IU interviews I've ever heard was him on a podcast. He described how Mike Davis got the job, and how he composed himself as a coach. It was pure gold. Funny, jaw dropping, honest.

    (2024) PF - Derik Queen

    Honest question...is Maryland just following IU and Woody around, offering every recruit we offer? Sure seems like their game right now. "We have no one on the roster, you get an immediate starting spot unlike IU". These last few don't feel like they ever gave IU a realistic shot. Pretty crazy for a program with a large question mark over their heads. I'm not worried about recruiting at all, especially once we prove ourselves on the court this year. These last few just smell a bit...

    NCAA MBB Transfer Portal

    How about Dawson Garcia? We recruited him out of HS and he just entered the portal, transferring from NC. Long shot, I'm sure, but one can hope/dream.

    Didn't JG already say he was coming back?

    2022-2023 IUBB Roster Projection

    I told you I wear crimson goggles. I think Race can be 1st team B1G; it's an opinion, brotha! I love his game; he has not yet hit his ceiling and would be our starting big man. He can defend, rebound, play "big" (some) and shoot mid range. If he develops even more, that's what we'll see and that's why I said what I said.

    2022-2023 IUBB Roster Projection

    Help me understand why it's a given that Race is gone? He's still very pro-IU all over social media, he would be a legit contender for 1st team B1G next year, he can stay if he wants and transferring really doesn't do much for him. The dude is a worker, he has verbalized his love for Woody and he loves IU. I want him back, but I pretty much wear crimson goggles at all times.

    IUBB @ Iowa - 01/13/22 @ 9:00 ET on FS1

    I was talking about JG, who I think should start. He brings so, so much more to this team than the two guards in front of him, neither of whom are PGs. Also, I'd give Leal a shot, yes. RP and X aren't just inconsistent, they're one out of every five games sort of guys.

    IUBB @ Iowa - 01/13/22 @ 9:00 ET on FS1

    Honest question after yet another winnable game. Many of us, myself included, become frustrated with the same old things over the past two coaching spurts (CTC, CAM). I was hoping CMW would be a breath of fresh air from a roster management perspective, yet from my couch-coaching perspective, I'm totally perplexed. Crazy lineups giving up large leads, repeated. At least 3 guys with repeated poor performances getting good playing time. At least one guy on the bench that plays harder and smarter than his peers yet gets limited playing time. If we don't see mid-season adjustments, we shouldn't expect any different results for the remainder of the season.

    IUBB vs #13/12 Ohio State - 01/06/22 @ 7:00 on FS1

    Man...they didn't come through in slow motion. That sucks....no need to watch 2-second clips. If anyone wants to see them in slow-mo, DM me and I'll text them to you.
