    2019 Off-Season IU Roster News and Moves

    I will assume you didn't watch them then....here is what i saw from his teams. 1) Players were moving the ball on offense, no stagnation 2) on defense, players were engaged, and had their hands up It was the type of basketball WE ALL OUR WANTING. The difference between you and me is that i think Archie has shown what we want when he was at Dayton (elements have been shown at IU too) and can do it at IU. You think not

    Honestly, did you watch his Dayton teams? I salivated over that type of ball being played.

    2019 Off-Season IU Roster News and Moves

    Wait, wait, wait.....so we want to get commitments from 4* and 5* guys who have the foresight that sitting on the bench for a year is in their best interest and the best interest of a program that is bigger than one individual? This is my problem with this fanbase, we want it all, we want an older mature team full of 5* talents who are from Indiana and commit on Archie's command. Those days are unrealistic. EDIT** e.g. Damezi, he needs a year or two more....i see a lot of people questioning whether he can play though

    If we have 10 guys getting rotation and are engaged in each game that is a good thing. So some of you want 2 guys at the end of the bench not engaged and thinking about which schools to transfer to the following year? If a team is playing 11-12 guys a night that tells you 3-4 of them aren't producing.

    How are we on option G? Guys, you really need to simmer down. TJD is a burger boy that will stay multiple years, Franklin fits Archie's mold perfectly who i am very excited about, Brunk checks off a lot of boxes....sorry guys the intel i got on Brooks was different, he liked IU but his focus is on the NBA and who can get him there the fastest. Can you blame a NC kid for choosing UNC? Watford was never coming here. My biggest problem with our message boards (other boards included) is that we convince ourselves that just b/c there are a couple tie ins we lead for every kid. As far as 2020 kids, let's see how it plays out before stepping off the ledge. **EDIT** All our 2019 kids are from where? Archie cannot win with this fanbase

    it is painfully obvious, that there is no leadership from the players. i think Archie was spoiled by that at dayton. The only person i see as a team first player is RP....no offense to Morgan or Langford, but they cannot command the team. Archie is a no bs guy, and that's what is expected. The family atmosphere is a facade unless the players are all in.....

    Those weak passes by our freshmen stood out the most, and cost us the most. We didn't look bad outside of those. If we eliminated the moronic TO's and made the bunnies, we would have been ahead most of the night, instead we were playing catch up.

    (2019) PF Trayce Jackson-Davis to INDIANA

    I feel a little bad for kids in this position, being torn by adults. If his Mom wants to see him at IU, then who gives a sh!t about the stepdad...why would you push the kid farther from his Mom for school. Especially it seems like TJD likes IU. In the end it seems like it makes too much sense, and he will go to IU, but crazier things have happened.
  10. Every kid is different. Romeo was a huge duke fan right? Fandom gets pushed aside once the decision becomes more businesslike.
  11. Where else would he go? His mom is sick. I would find it strange if he went somewhere else. Good luck to him too

    (2019) PF Trayce Jackson-Davis to INDIANA

    I stumbled on that guy's twitter a few weeks ago...it looked like he was completely making things up
  13. My wife works with one of his family members. It doesn't sound like Brooks is in any hurry to decide, and she did not get any feedback as to who is leading.

    Evan Fitzner to IU

    Active, knew where to be, only saw him breaking zone - didn't see outside shooting, free throw form looked solid. good role player
  15. If you think the IndyStar is bad, you should check out the Ft Wayne newspapers....they are embarrassingly bad.
