    (2021) PF Trey Kaufman to Purdue

    A lot of conjecture on here about Trey’s comments on position fit, nba readiness, and winning team being primary reasons for his decision, with it being interpreted as a negative reflection on the current state of IU/Archie’s program. Wouldn’t over analyze the decision as a judgment on the state of IU v PU b-ball. Players often just give generic reasons regardless of why they really choose a school. Pure speculation, but the Shrewsberry family is incredibly influential around the Jeffersonville area, where they are originally from, before moving to the Indianapolis many years ago. Purdue’s associate head coach is Micah! Often, like with many things in life, relationships rule the day. IU had some connections, PU likely did too. This time the PU ones won out. Good luck to him - Kid’s gotta spend a few years in W. Lafayette - that’s punishment enough for choosing PU!

    Mike Pegram flipped to Purdue on Crystal Ball. : ( Also, Michigan just jumped up to 100% on #2 PF, #8 overall 5 star Caleb Houstan. Time to move on to the next, but Arch has some crutin work to do!

    They’ll use it as a sorting tool all right...one that’s sorts us along with the group of have nots (unless we beat Penn St, or they are desperate to find winning teams). Conference entries get political, with in my guess, the ACC and SEC having the most clout. With both having seriously down years, they will look to cover by promo’ing there teams - even crappy ones. If 10 B1G teams get in - that is 71% of a 14 member conference. That’s too much perception of power - the ACC can’t have it!!! Guess who’s in 10th place?

    NET of 60 makes me super nervous! I know it is supposed to be a neutral general compare of teams similarly situated - but in reality seems to be a bit of a trashy measure that adds cloudiness to the picture to enable the committee to cut back room deals to do whatever they want. There seems to be little continuity with great discrepancies among teams’ resumes within the same decile. Hope I’m wrong, but I think there will be a huge amount of pressure NOT to let 9 or 10 B1G teams in. That will hit us hard with 60 NET!

    How Far Can This Team Go?

    Right now, 2nd week ceiling. Need to learn to string solid wins together better, and stronger resolve for consistency.

    Haven’t read many of the posts above, but the NET looks like complete trash! How are we 58 - even before today’s win - when compared to some many other team’s with higher NET! Just looking at VCU immediately above at 57....1 net win. I get they don’t get the opportunities— but their record/ wins are crap. Input on how this (NET) influences tourney inclusion and seeding?
  9. Poor DJ. It’s ok to mention why he left, and respectable reason, but man they’ve mentioned it 15 times!! Give em a break!!
  10. OSU played horrible half. Should be up by 20!
  11. This one is done. Foul whistled prior to shot. Give it to them anyway and add on a flagrant 1.
  12. Starving for some toughness here - let’s go!
  13. Good announcing crew - let’s use the positivity!!!
