  1. Cant win if we don't rebound or play defense. Miami wants it more. Pathetic showing tonight.

    Hoosiers on offense - I have 0 confidence we'll score. Hoosiers on defense - I have unlimited confidence PSU will score. They just want it more.

    Mentally weak team, fellas. We should be up double digits.

    But Carmelo likes him.....
  9. Absolutely. Who cares at this point. We're slowly fading into complete irrelevancy ala our football program.
  10. Will be an unpopular take but @$$ whoopins like this will make us better and more prepared for March. I'd rather have this than beating down a cupcake in Assembly Hall ala the Crean years.

    Beard to Texas.

  13. Waiting for the national guys to show their true hatred for IU and start mentioning Brad Stevens as a potential candidate after blasting our fan base for saying he'd leave the NBA to come to IU.
  14. I agree with this entirely and I'm not completely sold on it either. The alternatives not named Brad would've been guys that, when you really think about it and come down from the disappointment of Woody being hired, are just as risky. Oats, Musselman - what have these guys won? They're simply hot names right now. We've gone down that road. Guys like Bennett, Wright, Few (he's never leaving Zaga, I'm 100% convinced of this), etc - I too hope Scott at least reached out and floated a large number. Drew is a name I think would have come here if offered enough. But 7 mil? That's almost tripling his salary. Beard is the one guy I would've been cool with from the beginning. His personality seems to fit what everyone is looking for. BUT - outside of those two years, he's been mediocre. Risky. What I do know is kids eat the NBA **** up. Go look at Juwan Howards incoming class. Why do you think those kids want to go to UM? It certainly isn't bc of his coaching experience! And the "experience" factor when it comes to recruiting is bull. I know plenty of people that have had drivers licenses longer than me, that doesn't mean they're better at driving - in fact, in most cases - it's quite the opposite. I'm hopeful this works out but too am cautious and setting initial expectations lower than I'd like.
  15. Love it. You: "I'm pissed we didn't get a better coach" Him: "Ok. Who do you think we could've gotten?" You: "I'm not gona answer that!" You have every right to question the hire but come on, man. You're just complaining. He's only been on the job 48 hours. Be patient.
