    Can't watch him in any actual game action, but here's a 2 min. scrimmage video.  He's #5 in blue.

    Yeah, he wasn’t one of my preferred guys, but I shouldn’t imply that I was down on the hire. I wasn’t. Struck me as a perfectly solid, if not terribly imaginative, choice. I didn’t picture a dead fail, and if someone says they did, I don’t really think I’d believe ‘em. But I didn’t realize just how antithetical his philosophy is to mine. He’s made IU almost worse than bad for me, he’s made them boring.

    Solid tackle and forced fumble by the Butler DB as the Creighton player was driving.

    Robbins can shoot it a little. He might be an NBA player someday soon.

    If there is 1 thing in sports as inevitable as the tide coming in, it’s teams getting homered at Hinkle. Even with no crowd. This time it’s Creighton. Would love to see Iowa play there just to watch McCaffrey inevitably stroke out.

    Yes, he has that Christian Watford tendency to take it a dribble too far. And he doesn’t always make the simple play. But he does have some tools.

    11 or so rebounds. 4 blocks. Couple of steals. I can think of 3 assists. 4 TO’s, all of which were taking it into traffic. Shot 5-11, I believe. 0-1 from 3. 6-6 from the line. I wasn’t tracking, but that’s pretty close. 
    Started the game taking a couple of terrible shots and had a bad TO. All in the first couple of minutes. Settled down and was much better after that.

    Was able to get into this one. I didn’t think last year he was 6’10”. He is now. His movement and athleticism are really coming. They were switching everything and he was able to stay in front of CBC’s guards pretty consistently. He seems to have fallen in love with facing up in the mid post, which was doing CBC a favor since they had no answer for him on the block. Also made 6-6 from the line. Has such a pretty stroke for a big kid. Really like him long term.

    Usually hate idle chatter threads like this, but, hey, sometimes a little cathartic primal scream is mentally healthy, right? So, what the hell.
    Beilein-will put my admiration for Beilein up against anyone. He’s as good as it gets. But he’s about to be 68, and hiring a guy who might not recruit a full roster is not a solution. But, if you hire him along with a HC in waiting type, be it a young Asst(Mike Miller?) or a successful HC from a lower level(Greg Tonagel?), maybe you create a long term culture that way.
    If you’re gonna call a current high D1 guy, it’s gotta start with Beard and Greg McDermott, doesn’t it? Beard’s undeniably great and McDermott’s created a system and a development structure that’ll play anywhere and any good kid would want to be a part of. After them, Oats makes some sense. I’m still a fan of Mike White. Really like Kevin Willard, though I doubt he would turn on a lot of folks around here. His teams play as hard anybody. Maybe Eric Musselman. 
    If you’re trying for the “I’m the smartest guy in the room” under the radar mid-major hire, I can think of 2. Wes Miller, UNC-Greensboro, is just a great young coach. He may not be ready for the IU maelstrom yet, but he’s gonna be a big time guy at some point, somewhere. It would not bother me at all to jump on him while he’s still a little undercooked. Also love Craig Smith, the Utah St coach. Great coach, great energy, beautiful offense, and has the benefit of having been a B1G asst.
    i also think if you’re gonna post in this thread, you need to post who you honestly wanted when Archie was hired, and whether or not you stand by that now. No hope options(Stevens) excluded. There were people who wanted Miller. There were people who wanted Gregg Marshall.  You gotta admit to that stuff. I wanted Brad Underwood. And I’d take him again in a second.

    Like Levert as a fit next to Brogdon much better than Vic.
    The weird things we remember: Somebody started a thread on here a few ago asking what 2 players in college that year we would we have wanted for that IU team. I posted Domantas Sabonis and Caris Levert. Some dude responded that Sabonis couldn’t play in the Big Ten and Troy was better than Levert. Yeah.

    Kuluel Mading, who got some run around here a few months back, de-committed from Howard. From what I can recall of looking at him: 6’9”ish, long, built like a stick figure, runs well, explosively quick off the floor, good hands, needs skill development across the board, plays hard and competes, even with strength disadvantages. Will be an interesting late add for a high major, especially as a redshirt.

    A possible light at the end of the tunnel for WV high schools.  Today the WV governor announced games may begin on March 3, and practices on Feb. 15, for counties back in school in person.  Teams must have 14 practices completed before actual competition.  His earlier order would not have allowed practices to start prior to March 1.  Poca HS is located in Putnam Co., WV, and I have no idea whether schools are doing in-person teaching or all remote learning.

    A decision is on the horizon for ‘21  @ColoradoPrep_ PF Mouhammed Mbaye. Keep an eye on UGA, Indiana, Colorado. Rutgers, Louisville, AZ State offered, per coach. Really good game today in afternoon W. Run runner. Converts well in the paint.
