    Indiana Players Now In The Portal

    Years ago on some IU forum (indystar?) there was a poster with one of the best usernames ever: HandsofBlab. lol

    NCAA MBB Transfer Portal

    Indeed. And further complicated by possible NBA departures.

    Indiana Players Now In The Portal

    Yes. And when your recruiting "wins" are one-and-dones it's ultimately much worse (IMO).

    Coaching Changes Nationally

    Made me think. Who's the best ND player from the state of IN? I don't believe any of their greats were from Indiana (Carr, Shumate, Dantley, Tripuka). Maybe Ken Barlowe? ND all century BB list.

    Don Fischer: The Voice of College Sports

    I do everything I can to watch the televised games with Fisch's call sync'ed up. He's had some good (and some not-so-good) broadcast partners but always makes it better than TV. He's the perfect balance of being objective/homer, IMO. BTW, regarding WHCC: be warned that if there is a broadcasting conflict they usually give priority to the WBB game. I listen to WXVW out of Louisville (via tunein) in that situation.

    2023 General Recruiting Thread (BBall)

    How would he look as a plug-in replacement for Kopp?
  7. I hope & believe this is correct. The "window of opportunity" has been wide open this season for a handful of players and they refused to step up. In the NBA they don't wait multiple seasons for a player to get their act together, and this program is supposedly modeled after pro teams, so CMW and staff need to be busy after this season concludes.

    IUBB vs Illinois - Saturday, 2/18/23 @ Noon on ESPN

    He's referring to Tyra Buss who is engaged/married to Brad Davidson. Was at a WI vs IU game rooting for WI shamelessly.

    Well, it'll be interesting when the expansion takes place. Maybe two divisions - play twice against the in division foes and once against the other division teams?

    IUBB vs Rutger aka/Ruger - Tuesday, 2/7/23 @ 6:30 on BTN

    ...and turnovers.

    IUBB vs POTFB - Saturday, 2/4/23 @ 4:00 on ESPN

    Yeah, that half should put to rest the myth that the more aggressive team gets the calls.

    (2023) - SG Jakai Newton to INDIANA

    Maybe an unpopular opinion, but if there's any uncertainty about JN's physical health it would be wise to keep our eyes open for decomits or portal players that play the same position. I'm not suggesting dumping him at all, but don't make any assumptions about if/when he can return to pre-injury form.
  14. Wisc can't come back without our help. Let's not go goofy in these last few minutes.
