  1. Gotta rebound and take care of the ball the beat UConn. Love the effort, but the ladies are gonna fall short today. Heck of a season. I wonder what this program could be if the best players in the state stayed home and actually made a name for themselves and this university
  2. I completely agree. I’m not saying stop at fundamentals…I’m saying start there. I’m not interested in 6’8 kids who have no basketball IQ or 6’5 guards who can’t shoot or dribble. Kids who can’t/won’t defend or communicate on the court. Ideally you get a few with both…Zeller, Oladipo, Watford, Vonleh, etc. but you’re not going to find 12 guys who are both…the rest need to be fundamentally sound.
  3. We need to recruit kids who have the fundamentals first and continue to coach & emphasize their importance. Shoot. Pass. Dribble. Defend. Effort. Everything else needs to come next.
  4. Let’s try not to sh*t all over the kids on the team. Trash the staff all you want but be constructive when criticizing individual players, please.

    Bates is the only kid who could (or at least should) have taken some of his minutes and honestly, I don’t think Woody trusts him yet. In a big, win or go home, game…I’m good with PStew getting the minutes he got with how he was playing. He may not of helped much on offense but he didn’t hurt us on that end either.

    Honestly, I can’t believe P Stew has his own hate thread after the way he played tonight. If there’s a sh*t list, he’s below Kopp, Race and Galloway on it. I do agree Bates deserves more minutes but for all we know he’s in Woody’s dog house

    I don’t agree he’s a lock to get drafted but at best, he’s a mid 2nd rounder unless he can somehow work on his jumper and impress scouts with it at the combine. He’s undersized for an NBA 4 who can’t shoot so weak draft or not, he needs work. Can we seriously not get him an NIL that’s 5x what a G League contract would be? If Woody can convince him he’ll help him develop that jumper and the boosters get him a healthy NIL deal, I think it actually makes sense for him to come back. Lotta if’s though.

    Mo Creek - Back In The U.S.A.

    He didn’t get out. Tweeted 40 minutes after saying the air raid sirens were going off and he can’t leave. Scary stuff. https://www.foxnews.com/sports/indiana-basketball-player-stuck-ukraine-russian-invasion-terrified

    In fairness, he did get 8 minutes in the last one. Hard to judge a kid when Woody keeps all transgressions in house. Agree it’s a tough look though.

    Lol, you said we had no chance for 20 wins after the first game of the season. If you’re not going to root for IU, why are you here? Go find a team you can actually cheer on. Your incessant negativity coupled with the absolute lack of credible perspective is incredibly annoying. Basketball aint for you bud.

    IUBB vs Illinois- 2/5/2022 @ 12:00 on ESPN

    Woody still hasn’t adjusted to the college game. He’s used to pros who can recover during an off night and turn things around so the message to his nba teams stayed the same…”if at first you don’t succeed; try and try again”. In the college game you have know when to pivot when someone doesn’t have it that night, or doesn’t have the matchup advantage. I can live with losing when the guys give max green beans and the coaches are switching things up to exploit what the opposition is giving you but it is frustrating to watch a team only do one thing without any regard for how successful it is or isn’t.

    I’m not sure anyone is arguing Hiller was the “main cause”, rather he was the obvious weakest link. I think injuries were the main cause but did the ineptitude of the OL contribute to that? Likely. Can a struggling offense rally behind backup QBs RBs and WRs when the OL can’t protect them/create holes for them? Not a chance. When Sheridan and Warren get thown under the bus while Hiller is protected at all costs (despite other coaches raising concerns) it shows CTA doesn’t value their opinion nor has what it takes to make difficult but necessary adjustments for the greater good of the program.

    As for Hart’s recruits, I look at where they end up and how they did at lesser destinations and that tells me all I need to know about his eye for talent and ability to develop RBs. I never understood why he got as much credit as he did. As for Stevie Scott, I think there were family ties to Hart if IRC and the fact the IU was the only school who recruited him to be an RB…his other offers were on defense. So he certainly gets some credit there with an assist to Allen for his efforts.

    And he’s now at juggernaut UMASS and James is at Purdue. Most of the guys Hart brought in didn’t end up being power 5 talent and color me shocked if once James doesn’t get carries at Purdue (despite having no legitimate RBs on the roster) he leaves again and ends up at Ball St or the equivalent.

    This isn’t Sam Story making up headlines like “Donovan to IU, done deal”. Just because you don’t like what you see doesn’t mean people don’t know what they’re taking about or have a valid opinion. I presume your vitriol is at Chris??? I’ve never seen him post the same type of nonsense like the entitled “insiders” on HSN used to nor threaten to leave if anyone challenged them. Maybe chill a bit. Calling for athletic department employees (no idea who you’re even referring to there) to be fired is childish.
