    Starters:
    TJD Race Miller JHS X Full rotation bench, in order of minutes/appearance:
    Malik Gallo JG Tamar In rotation, but to a lesser extent -- blowout or a wing is playing crappy:
    CJ Lesser-extent rotation for when we play an Edey-style giant:
    Logan Out of rotation:
    Kaleb Anthony Injuries? Bump bench players up one category when the injury strikes their position. I believe that's where we are to start the season.

    The culture around the program has changed dramatically in the last 2 years. Has a completely different feel this year even compared to last. Great leadership in place.

    Well in this case, we are both right and we need to nail 2023 transfer portal recruiting to not see a precipitous drop next season.

    Bates and Reneau project to start. Semi question marks everywhere else. Guys to like, however. It’ll have to be a prove it year.

    It's just a tad early to be convinced that he's for sure leaving but I think there is reason for concern. 
    I disagree on the ease of filling needs through the portal. In the scenario that we need a point guard, we'll need a starting level PG. Whereas we will likely only need a serviceable big to play a backup role. 
    I'm sure Bates and Galloway can help out some at point but if IU is relying on them for extended minutes there, I doubt it really matters who are 3/4 bigs are.

    In any event, we have three/maybe four guys that can play with the ball in their hands; whereas last year we were giving over 30% of the guard minutes to Parker Stewart, who could not.

    Pretty darn good event. I thought they did well. Gave us a 6 minutes scrimmage. Maybe that should be 10 min but they play that like an all star game so it doesn’t really matter.

    FWIW they didn’t air GHerbo on BTN+ to my sons disappointment and my indifference.

    If Bates is the most improved player, as has been stated by the coach and some players, he will definitely see a lot of time on the court. Geronimo has already proven he can score and rebound. Woodson seems to have a lot of confidence in Miller Kopp which is why he is slated as a starter. One has to assume he has been told he needs to shoot more and do more to get open shots. He started out last season well (28 points in one game). Hopefully that is the player we will see this season.

    Let's get extremely high-quality individuals, and let's pay them within the rules as much as possible.
    I'm a major fan of the attitude, personal presentation, and basketball team attitudes of Malik Reneau and Jalen Hood-Schifino, and I'm also a big fan of them getting as much NIL as possible while at IU.
    That's "having our cake and eating it too" roster construction at its finest.

    Agreed but it's a far cry from some 'grey' area stuff that is not coach/assistant-coach driven and doesn't involve paying players, etc. to the type of historical dirty-program stuff we've seen from programs like UK (the most sanctioned program ever), Louisville (oh sure, let's have IU setting up strippers for recruits), UNC (decades of fake classes, yeah, count me out), etc. 
    The NCAA doesn't care stuff doesn't fly with me either. Cal left not one but two programs behind with forfeited season records, because of NCAA infractions. Of course programs have been banned from NCAA tourney play, etc. The NCAA has largely been a joke, I've been probably one of the most vocal 'haters' on the NCAA, but not because it doesn't care and ignores infractions, it's because it's been an inept, inconsistent association that has basically zero enforcement authority without the cooperation of the school involved. UNC fought tooth and nail despite all kinds of proof of its fake classes for basketball and football players, the NCAA had no actual power to do anything. It did go after Ville, however, etc. IU in contrast to the UNC's of the world self-sanctioned in the face of those silly Sampson 'phone gate' but 'major' infractions, while the NCAA went hard against Sampson because he'd escaped them when they went after Okla. 
    In the 'grey' for recruiting etc., with an active compliance program, and being a dirty program are two entirely different things. Count me out of the let's play dirty mantra. We have NIL now, so most of this is irrelevant now anyway (though the lack of consistent NIL regs / requirements across the field is a problem).

    I don't know that I would even call it optimism. If IU doesn't improve one iota from last year, then they'd still have a good chance to run roughshod over most of the rest of the Big 10. That's how much the Big lost from last year. How plausible is that IU doesn't improve at least slightly? That the returning players aren't better in year two of the new system? That none of the new players contribute anything?

    We aren't going to go injury free throughout the year. The depth will pay dividends as frontline guys miss games for whatever reason. Having ten guys who can play doesn't mean that ten guys will play every game. I just feel way more comfortable about the guys on the bench this year than last. Could be the difference between winning and losing in some games.
