    Maybe their pay wall would be more profitable if you had to pay to not see some of the content.

    Well, if you consider shacking up with one of your player's moms while you are coaching him in high school, the amazing coincidence of getting a job at the exact same college he commits to, and being fired 5 days after he enters the transfer portal as odd, then sure. But given enough time a monkey sitting at a typewriter will eventually type the complete works of William Shakespeare. Does that seem odd?

    Haven't heard, what's odd about his situation?

    Reminds me of a few years back, these older guys were playing slowly in front of us, one guy looked about 90. After a bunker shot he fell down trying to climb out, his friends just looked at him wallow around a bit until he managed to get up. I couldn't help but laugh, but by doing so felt myself a little closer to hell...it was worth it.
  6. Watching the IU guards just standing around was infuriating last season, watching it in relation to a team like Nova moving is all the indictment of CAM needed to justify his firing. Mind boggling that a team would be taught to be so complacent. That said, I really hope we have someone working on the team shooting because no one was guarding IU guards close enough to create spacing last year, largely due to horrendous outside shooting. We all see the guys acquired/available next season and the chance to be special, but it is going to come down to better shooting.
  7. A well handled situation by Dolson. Having Hunter and Roberts around after Miller was fired and before CMW was hired certainly kept the ship from capsizing. Once CMW came on board, it seemed clear Roberts was not likely to be retained as a coach, but Dolson rewarded him for his fealty by appointing him a job in the athletic department, while allowing him to seek a more desired position in coaching. That level of loyalty just feels right. Kudos, ADSD

    Yeah, I agree. The premise brought up about Brunk was that he had been treated in a way that I and others don't want any of the current players to be treated in order to make space for an "upgrade" player. It's an idea that ignores that Brunk didn't count against scholarships and, even at that, he entered the portal at a time when IU had 2 scholarship spots open. I don't think anyone saw Brunk getting anywhere near 20 min/G if he had stayed, I would guess less than the 13 M/G he averaged over the last 9 games of 2019-20. My reply to you was a bit in jest, as Brunk would have been a useful keep, but also I don't think CMW would be recruiting guys that would look at Brunk as a competitor for minutes. As for Duncomb, as a good but not OAD type incoming freshman, I don't think he expects a ton of PT and Brunk wouldn't factor into his thinking. My thoughts are that Brunk was told, this is what we are going to run and it isn't an offense in which you are likely to see much playing time. And that is the exact type of the conversation that hopefully was done with every player, and really unrelated to a Creaning type conversation that some are advocating if a certain player became available.

    If CMW is looking for guys that are worried about losing PT to Joey Brunk types... oy vey.

    What did IU gain by having a non scholarship counting, mature team leader leave? It makes zero sense to think they didn't want him around.

    How so? 1)Brunk could have stayed. In fact, why would any coach encourage a freebie scholarship guy to leave? 2)No one new was added at Brunks position. So he just didn't want to stay for whatever reason. 3)And by him leaving to take a similar PT position at OSU, I would far from consider him a die hard Hoosier.

    It's would not be the welcoming of Brooks, it would be the Creaning of a guy you just asked weeks ago to stay and buy into the Hoosier Nation family that is at issue.

    Problem is when CMW says: "My first job is to sit down with each one of them and talk about staying in Hoosier Nation. You know, that's what's important. And if I got to plead and beg a little bit to keep them here, I'm going to do that." Then you have 13 guys sign up to go to war with you. Essential leaving a man behind is not a good look or where I want the program to be. You could make a bit of a justification for a program changing talent, but Brooks is not that. I take these 13 and expect improvement, next year through normal attrition (early NBA/ PT transfers) there will be more space made available and the following yr there is 4 open spots
