    2021 5th Yr/Sr Decisions

    False alarm. Guess not yet actually. The author on ESPN edited the article and it now says “Whop Philyor has not yet announced what he intends to do.”

    2021 5th Yr/Sr Decisions

    Whop already announced he’s coming back. According to ESPN in the article about Fryfogle: “His decision to return to Indiana comes only two days after Hoosiers receiver Whop Philyor, Indiana's second-leading receiver, also announced he would return to school for the 2021 season.”
  3. Wanted to start a thread for conversation about the Women’s games going on around college basketball, or general discussions that relate indirectly to the Lady Hoosiers. I’ll kick off the thread with a couple observations from today. UCLA bouncing back, up big on #19 ASU. Was really surprised seeing them get beat by almost 30 at Arizona on Friday. The top half of the PAC 12 is crazy talented. South Carolina smoked Tennessee by 21. The Lady Hoosiers win over them (their only loss) on a neutral court continues to look more and more impressive. Michigan beat #19 Iowa, and unranked Florida beat #13 Kentucky. If unranked LSU can hold on and beat #15 Texas A&M, IU might be looking at a jump up to the 15-18 range after two home wins last week. @Class of '66 Old Fart @WayneFleekHoosier @Aaron @mamasa @Hoosierfan31 @Basketballhead24 @LamarCheeks

    A Transfer Coming?

    Man, his former high school coach sure threw up a big smoke screen a few weeks ago didn’t he? It was so widely assumed until that “he’s 100% focused on being a Hoosier next year” quote. Wish DA the best. Think this was a good decision for him.

    Not lending any credibility to ISP, because I have no connection or knowledge about them at all - but, Chris Reynolds becoming the new AD was all but decided upon and was being planned for, until McRobbie interjected in the 11th hour. So, not saying ISP deserves more or less credibility, but take the AD miss with a grain of salt.

    I’d recommend everyone get their seat belts tightened and enjoy the ride. As the late Bill Withers said, it’s gonna be a lovely day. ;)

    Sounds like they will, but won’t be voted on until May 21st.

    Just announce for Duke and get it over with already.

    (2021) - SG Jordan Longino

    Had a chance to watch some film on this guy today and I’m becoming more of a fan. He’s got a really strong frame already and uses his body well to get his shot off in the lane. Was really impressed with his mid-range game around the elbow. (A lost art form) He obviously shoots the three ball well, but I think there’s even some upside there with a little work on his form. It looks to me like his guide hand is a little too much on top of the ball and could be brought down the side a bit to allow him to release at a higher point and fix the small hitch in his shot. For a 40% shooter from deep, to still say it has room to get better is pretty impressive. I hadn’t been as high on him in this class, but he’s rising up my wish list.

    http://www.espn.com/mens-college-basketball/story/_/id/29055274/top-international-prospect-kerr-kriisa-commits-arizona Archie’s big brother continues to land recruits from every avenue. Got to wonder if/when the FBI investigation impacts their ability to reload year in and year out. Maybe the lack of a repercussion has just emboldened them to keep up the shady practices and that’s why things keep rolling along. ?

    IU Football Off-Season

    http://www.espn.com/video/clip?id=27434833 Jovan Swann transferring from Stanford had been known from his Twitter announcement. I hadn’t really gotten too far into his potential impact yet. But came across this. Granted, it was from before last season, but being talked about as the top ranked defensive player in the country in any form tells me he’s got a serious upside for the Hoosiers in his one remaining year.

    Random IUWBB Recruiting

    Did she enter the transfer portal? Also, anybody know how she was ranked as a recruit coming into Oregon? Agreed that we would be wise to add some post position depth.

    IU Men's Soccer Offseason Updates

    https://iuhoosiers.com/news/2020/4/16/mens-soccer-title-aspirations-remain-for-indiana-soccer.aspx Good read with some great quotes by Todd about the team. This is the mentality of an elite program.

    Nope. The mayors. It’s breaking news at the moment so can’t find a supporting link for NY, but here is the California Mayor. https://www.cnn.com/2020/04/15/politics/los-angeles-mayor-coronavirus-concerts-cnntv/index.html

    LA and NY mayors just said sports events and concerts are unlikely to resume in their cities until 2021. Wonder if recruits to colleges there would be given releases of their commitments if other states and/or cities will be playing basketball/football in the fall.

    Well said. Agree with all of this, except that we are fighting for his services with Purdue. They aren’t a factor here.

    A Transfer Coming?

    I really think word on transfers and the fact that we haven’t announced anybody incoming has a lot to do with the May 21 meeting of the Division I Council when they will be voting to change the transfer rule. Archie and crew are smart to wait for that vote if they may only have room for one transfer, because all of the sudden there could be a free agency market to go choose from. If you’ve already grabbed several players from the small group available now, you might hamstring yourself from grabbing an elite transfer who will be immediately eligible based on the vote. Same may go for DA’s decision. He may be waiting to see if he has the option of being eligible right away because if he has to sit out a year it’s not worth it to him.

    (2020) SG Anthony Leal to IU

    Love the optimism. But that is a bold prediction. Seems like a great kid and a good player, but there have been a lot more polished and talented players to come through the program in the last 18 years and not get IU to a Final Four.

    Why not. If you’re only planning on playing one year in college, and there’s a chance that season will be shortened or you might not be able to play in front of crowds - might as well let a G-league or European team pay you a little bit of money and bank on professional teams being able to have more control over when you can get back in the gym and work on your game. I still think the NBA and other professional leagues have a greater incentive to get guys playing basketball sooner than college programs which may be hamstrung by cautious universities.

    (2021) PG Khristian Lander to INDIANA (IN 2020!)

    I’ve read articles on the impact of the virus to education where schools are already eliminating standardized testing scores from their application and admissions requirements. You’ve got to remember, schools need enrollment. I would imagine this will be addressed and exempted by the NCAA if tests aren’t available.

    (2021) SF - Aminu Mohammed to Georgetown

    Isn’t Louisville still under that cloud technically? The NCAA hasn’t really dropped any hammers from the FBI stuff. Has to at some point you’d think.

    College Bball Thread

    Thanks. Two random observations: -Goodness the SEC had a lot of early entrants. Mizzou sending three early from a team that wasn’t .500?? - Arizona with four leaving early. To me, they have been an example of a program trying to play the one and done game unsuccessfully. They churn five-stars, but never really get the one-year results to make it worth it.

    He averaged 5pts/game for Utah St. last year and only 19.1 mins/game. Adds depth, but certainly not an impact grad transfer that they could have used given their depleted backcourt with Luther Mohammed leaving.
