  1. Also, if he is doing them through virtual school for initial credit, he might have already started them. Sent from my LM-G850 using BtownBanners mobile app

    Beilein will be available.....

    I am not a coach and I don't know all of the intricacies of Archie's defense. I have wondered though, if the players aren't doing a good job with it...why not go to a straight man-to-man? Easy to understand and each individual will be exposed of they don't show effort against their man. Sent from my LM-G850 using BtownBanners mobile app

    IU @ Michigan 2/16 1 pm CBS

    With the effort they showed today, the scholarship players should stay out there and have to take in the fact that they have walk-on players finishing the game against them....and extending the lead. Sent from my LM-G850 using BtownBanners mobile app

    Negativity Thread

    You definitely make good points here. However, I would say it would be different if we were having this discussion after making the tournament but not making a deep enough run in the tournament. The problem is that with expectations not all that high, three years should be enough to put a good, consistent product on the floor. The only thing consistent right now is bad basketball. If I was mediocre to poor in my performance evaluations over a three year period, I shouldn't be surprised if my employer is looking to replace me. On the other hand, if I was replacing someone that couldn't meet very mild expectations, I would not be afraid of being treated the same if I were to actually meet or exceed the expectations set forth.

    IUBB vs MSU Game Thread 1/23 8:30 FS1

    I agree....honestly, with us in the mix at this point and with how we are trending upward, we could very well share or win the conference title. Take care of home and split our 3 sets of two game road trips to only lose 3 more conference games. Totally achievable if we keep playing like we have been.

  7. I agree...i took him saying that as changing the dispersion of min and giving the bulk of them to those that are bringing their best that day. Sent from my LM-G850 using BtownBanners mobile app

    IUBB vs Arkansas 12/29 @ 6 pm BTN

    All great points! Our guard play was atrocious and I agree that collectively they made a mess of this game. I guess I have been hoping the the FSU game wouldn't be an outlier with Green. It is so maddening that he has no recognition of time and possession. Your senior has to be able to recognize when the guards need to stop shooting the ball because no one is making anything and to go back to what ALWAYS got us our lead by pounding it inside. He can obviously be so good at times but Green has to LEAD... Sent from my LM-G850 using BtownBanners mobile app

    IUBB vs Arkansas 12/29 @ 6 pm BTN

    I don't usually like to place blame one player or person for a loss, but this one is on Green. One of our captains is ejected from the game and our senior leader should be a calming force that helps things get going. We need him on the floor because we need his potential points but man, it's times like these where he's got to step up. Sent from my LM-G850 using BtownBanners mobile app

    IUBB vs Nebraska 12/13 8 pm BTN

    Yeah you're right. I forgot about the close games early in the season last year and remembered them when I went back and looked. I guess I'm tired of being frustrated about the little things and if the team is able to gut out a win, regardless of the opponent and/or how ugly it is, I've decided to be happy with it and hope for growth.

    IUBB vs Nebraska 12/13 8 pm BTN

    Last year we lost most of our close games....12 out of 13 games if I remember correctly. Is jury still out on how good we can be? Sure. But I like winning more than losing and if we are winning these type of games now and can be playing our best basketball at then end of the season then I will continue be happy when we win games...

    (2019) PG Austin Van Zyl

    Some have said that this feels like a Crean-like desperation recruit. With Archie saying that we will only go after someone that will help us in the 2019 class, I'm going to choose this to have more of the feeling of this being the type of unknown recruit Beilein would get at Michigan that would roast us for 20 point?

  13. It's clear now what is going on. IU must be an Android school and Memphis is a Mac school. Apple must have promised the parents $ if he chose Memphis and used FaceTime to do it. LQ will endorse the new 2023 AirPods after graduation...and all this time we have been worried about Adidas vs. Nike vs. UA... Sent from my SM-N960U1 using BtownBanners mobile app

    2019 Off-Season IU Roster News and Moves

    I know we need a shooter in the worst way and losing Harris doesn't help, but I can't understand the argument that we NEED more talent to win. Everyone coming back and our recruiting class coming in is a 4 or 5 star (according to 247) coming out of high school except Green, Durham, and Franklin. We have talent, just need development and togetherness. Watford and LQ would be great if it happens, but we really just need guys that are sold out for IU, can shoot the rock, and play nasty D.
