    Good luck to Justin and congrats on the degree. 
     
    On the court he could be a top notch defender if he wanted. Overall, I trusted Race more, and he played better paired with TJD.

    Don’t let the NCAA find out that you have food to a player.

    The letter was sent to Mike Conley, but was written for Sharron Collins. Both players were top 5 PG’s in the class. Collins ended up at Kansas and IU had no shot at Conley after that. So both Conley and Oden went to OSU. 
     
    edit: Could you imagine the team of Conley, Vaden, DJ White, Oden, Ratliff, Wilmont, Allen, Etc.  even with Davis as a coach, this is a final four caliber team.

    You do realize that the model is changing in college sports in the next 2 years. The McD 1 and dones will be going straight to the NBA, not college. So you need guys who can develop over years. LD could average 15-8 his senior year, all depends on development. Think the Wisconsin model for big men, that’s what we are going to. Then sprinkle in a TJD and KL a yea. Then you have yourself a final four caliber team. But when those guys leave after 2 years, you need guys like LD ready to step in and produce. That’s how you sustain success and not have the highs and lows where you miss the NCAA’s. 
    I highly doubt we are done recruiting big. Be happy we got a guy who could be a very solid piece down the road. Hell maybe he blows up over the next year and becomes a top 50 recruit. Who knows. 
     
    Also, you expect LD to be a bench player but his actual rating score is higher than Leal who you have as a starter. Leal is a .9522 on 24/7, LD is a .9556 on 24/7. I think both will be starts by their junior years but not expecting it as freshmen.

    You can't really use the tournament as a barometer, at least at this point. There are too many variables and unknowns. What if we win 23 games, lose in the first round of the BTT but then make a Sweet Sixteen? Are you firing him?
    What if they win 26 games, lose in the BTT Final and then lose in the 2nd round of the NCAA? Firing him?
    What if they win 21 games, win 2 BTT games and then make an Elite run? Are you firing him?
    Does he have to hit all of your criteria? Just one? 2 out of 3?
    What Archie needs to do is continue to show progress and improvement. The team has improved every season under Archie, though I fully admit the improvements have been incremental, with no huge leaps. I do agree it is time, especially if you have the bulk of the roster (including TJD) returning and you're adding a kid like Lander for a more substantial leap. But to put actual win parameters (25 games, specific # of tournament wins, etc.) is setting yourself up to paint yourself into a corner. 
    Continued improvement and progress is what Archie needs to do.

    If we make the NCAA Tournament, the pressure lowers immensely. If we miss the NCAA Tournament, then he is on the hot seat next season with a new AD in town. I think Archie knows this. Which is why we see a more intense, short fused Archie. He doesn’t want to be fighting for his job next year. Which will hurt recruiting. He wins and gets into the NCAA’s this year and all the noise goes away. He can just keep building.
