    (2016) SG Rawle Alkins to Arizona

    it wasn't quite like that. He decided he wanted to go late, and they said no they couldn't do that.

    Victor Oladipo - Indiana Pacers

    Yes not many have the work ethic and dedication he had as well. Of course freak athleticism helps as well.

    Offer and Acceptance in Hoosiers Basketball

    First off you have the meeting long before you extend an offer. When I say feel for each others interest, I mean getting to know how much the kids want to go to IU and how much you want them there. If you see they are highly interested in IU you can hold on to the offer, and look around because you know they're staying interested. As for Eron Gordon, it's naive to think just because we're his best offer he automatically wants to come here. That being said if he does I think the coaching staffs accepts that and locks him in. If it came down to it and he did accept but Brown, or Alkins says they want to come here then You either stick with Eron or If you had to take back your offer, if Eron says he wants to come here and they say wait, then he's gone. Sure if you're confident they won't run tell them no, I don't think that happens l, but as for leverage Colleges can always take back that offer, nothing's guaranteed to Players till the Pen hits the paper.
  9. I'm just confused on why you guys think we have the luxury to tell kids, I'm going to extend you this offer but don't commit till I say you're good enough. That would be the fastest I've ever seen a recruit lose interest.
  10. Exactly it's simply another way of Cream trying to get into the players heads that what they do means something and it reflects on more then themselves. This to me is desperation to get them to understand not arrogance.

    Offer and Acceptance in Hoosiers Basketball

    That's fine, you weren't offered by that school. They said they would offer you if they missed on someone. I agree that can happen if you're not a sought after recruit, or they know you really want to go there. Your situation has nothing to do with what we're talking about.

    Offer and Acceptance in Hoosiers Basketball

    I'm not sure we do agree. I never said they don't meet, I argued that they never extend an offer to a kid saying we're hoping to get someone else so please don't accept this offer.
  13. I honestly think Knight threw his in the garbage.

    (2016) PF De'Ron Davis to IU

    Yeah pap is saying Herard either he's confuse or by putting it in Davis thread it's confusing others.

    Offer and Acceptance in Hoosiers Basketball

    I never they don't talk about timelines and get a feel for each others interest, but no I don't think they say anything like "we like you but for now think of you as a back up and only want you in case these others fall through" Do you honestly think you'd ever get a recruit doing that?

    Offer and Acceptance in Hoosiers Basketball

    Absolutely not not do I think the coaching staff had any thought he would do that. Although if he did commit, I don't think they'd have a problem with it. A pretty good lock on a kid with extensive potential.

    Offer and Acceptance in Hoosiers Basketball

    Wow, the fact that you assume that's how things went is remarkable. If you don't think the kids good enough fine, question why we expressed interest, but my god to think that we might have wanted him as an 8th option so we offered him anyhow is ignorant. I'm sure the coaches wanted this guy and were happy he committed. And if you don't agree cool, but quit with this perceived notion that we offer everyone we express interest in and just hope the ones we want commit before the others, because in no way is that how it happens.

    Yes sir they do.
  21. Oh I just felt like being negative, but I really don't see us getting both Davis and Kegler, definitely could be wrong though.

    It's hard to compare what Umpires have to do compared to contact sport officials.
