    Do any of our players know the offense? Does Archie? I know I sure don't. All these extended scoreless periods that we go through every game, it sure wouldn't hurt to add a shooter to the mix.

    Can’t stress enough how big this win was moving forward.  First it gets you a guaranteed  split this week for road games so going to Ohio st should be less stressful and playing with house money.  IU will have to beat a top 5 team on the road to get its first 3 game win streak of the season.   This is another top 100 road win.  While fans see a win against a terrible team the committee will see a top 100 road Q2 win.  6 of IU’s 11 wins are away from home.   That will stand out. 
    my guess is they will move up in the NET with a road win. I will guess 4 spots

    If he turns into someone like that, we have really got something. His progression, as well as the other freshmen, gives me some hope that better days are coming. This class is developing much faster than I expected. Now if a few of our upperclassmen would just follow their lead, we might yet get something out of this season. After he committed, I remember him saying he just wanted to do whatever coaches asked him to do. I feel like we stole one with JG.

    The reason that the Miami-UNC game has been postponed is because a video surfaced after the Tar Heels win over Duke in which Day’Ron Sharpe and Armando Bacot were partying without masks, source told @Stadium. Miami wasn’t comfortable playing the game.

    There's a lot more to it, actually. The more significant outlier in this situation is that nobody played a full non-conference schedule. PSU played 4 non-conference games. A normal season has what...10? 12? non-conference games. So add 6 or 7 wins against cupcakes and boom! 13-8, 14-8....well over .500 with some really strong wins. The outlier/strange scenario is that a 7-8 team this season can have the same strength of resume as a 14-8 team did last season at the same point. It just doesn't include all of the wins that don't actually count toward a resume.

    A couple thoughts to add here --
    A good friend of mine out East watched/scouted both Oladipo (at DeMatha) and Geronimo. During Vic's recruitment and commitment he told me Vic was going to be a stud in college, that he was then a double-guy with boards as a guard, that his D was way ahead of his O which was still developing, but that he was exceptional and would do really well at IU. Couldn't have been more right. Around when Geronimo committed he told me Geronimo was better at the same age as Vic, further along, also better defensively at his current development but better than Vic was at that age. That's seriously high praise. Then coming into this season there were several comments from inside the program that Geronimo was wowing guys in practice. 
    I think he's farther along already than his court time is indicating. His stroke looks smooth to me, fwiw. Back on the Adidas Gauntlet he was shooting around 36% from deep, Jerry Meyer scouted him and tabbed him a good spot-up 3-point shooter, his limitations were his handle/straight-line drives. I remember reading somewhere that he shot close to 40% his junior year (not sure if that's right but that's what I remember). He was the 2019 NH Gatorade POY, and with that he had a GPA just under 4.0. The kid is good, smart and a hard worker, he's just going to get better, great work ethic. Not calling him Vic, but I think he'll develop into an exceptional player and should start by next season, imo.

    Jordan Geronimo seems to have become a true rarity on any board--a big fan favorite with no one expressing real reservations--no if's, and's, or but's.
    For me, I am shocked at how well this supposedly inexperienced freshman sees the court, and understands offensive spacing and help defense. I'm also intrigued by what appears to be a good-form jump shot.
    So let's open a discussion:
    Do we foresee him as a 25+ minutes per game starter anytime soon? If the sky is the limit, what do we think is the sky for Jordan G? A happy thread! Have at it:

    I thought the name Deland McCullough rang a bell -- and for more than having spent time at IU. He has a great story. He was adopted, and a few years back, started searching for his biological parents. After locating his mother, she told him his father was someone he had known his whole life -- a man who had coached him and served as somewhat of a mentor. His name is Sherman Smith -- and he had no idea Deland was his son. The woman who he had a dalliance with in high school never told him she got pregnant. Sherman actually recruited Deland to play at Miami-Ohio -- never knowing that actually was his son. A very cool story ...

    It’s far from official so be patient. The potential icing on the cake could be DM’s son Desan. Currently committed to OSU but I’d be less than shocked if he flipped to join his dad. I also see this as a parlay move to OC. With another couple solid seasons Seridan will be moving on, making way for DM to become the new OC. This is potentially a big, big get for the program

    I told Gunn and his dad that yesterday -- that his high character, high academics,  strong work ethic, strong family background really fits well with what Archie did in the 2020 and 2019 classes and seems to be emphasizing more and more.  I'm with you, I don't know how exactly it translates to winning but having a smart, committed team that works hard doesn't seem like a bad thing.
