    Fire Tom Allen

    And somehow performance is never included in these contracts as “cause”
  2. Might as well save the travel expenses for the buyout

    I think Camper, Cooper, and McCaulley along with the Clemson and Fordham transfer have lots of potential. For RBs Henderson was improving toward the end of the year, Lucas, and the transfer from Wake Forest should be a solid combo of power and speed. To me it all comes down to the Oline which will be improved by getting Bedford back along with a better coach.

    My optimism is rooted in having a good Oline coach. We should have a good set of receivers and rbs. If we can get the blocking down we are in business. Allen is usually able to develop a defense.

    You are right. Good catch. Still think we get one of my toss ups.

    To be fair Trevell redshirted last year. You can say he has potential but the staff didn’t feel like he was talented enough to beat out our other corners yet.

    DJ definitely didn’t learn his shooting from Dad!

    I agree he’s gone but why the delay in announcing if it is 100%?

    There’s also a lot of shots for him to replace with Jett Howard going pro

    Indiana Players Now In The Portal

    Agree completely on bashing the players. Most of the issue isn’t with the guys but the expectations set for them (fair or unfair). I remember all the reports about Bates being the best guard in practice and a multi level scorer before his freshman year. By all accounts he and JG have been good teammates and represented IU well off the court. If they end up in the portal and don’t burn bridges on the way out I hope they both excel at their new schools.
  12. Quite simple. Change way the game is officiated in the conference. There is now a talent gap with other conferences based on how teams have had to build to compete. NIL should help some schools get better players (see Rutgers and Maryland recruiting). It can be fixed and quickly if we eliminate tackle basketball. The issue is that some of the schools benefit from the status quo and would be left behind (Purdue, Wisconsin, Iowa).
  13. This hopefully will be a game TJD dominates. Short turn times against an unfamiliar opponent gives them less time to practice and develop an advanced game plan for him

    Everyone’s thoughts on the best 1st round matchups (non IU)? I think TAMU and PSU will be a good one
