    I didn't see it, but I heard about it. I am not a big fan of the overly emotionally stuff because I also think it leads to bad decision making (who to play, what coaches to retain, who to recruit).

    Not to not pat you on the back, but I don't think you're the only person who thinks or has thought this. I would actually guess a majority of people thought this would get old quickly. The rah rah stuff only works in spurts hence why it's not a great motivator or coaching style long term or honestly, for adults.

    After a couple of years as the head coach every year should be in "win now" mode. If he's relying on transfers, he should quit.

    This is pretty huge news if true.

    Thad Matta to Butler

    Where is that being reported?
  9. I will not hate or boo Rob, but he would lose some of the Hoosier "status" he has built up within the program and with the fans, no doubt about that. And I really don't see him getting more playing time at PU than he would have gotten here, nor is PU guaranteed to be "great" or anything. So if he goes there it's more about "going home" which would be odd to me, but whatever, things are not like they used to be so I wouldn't be shocked, just disappointed. It's not like all of a sudden he's going to be great. Al and Armaan didn't just start lighting it up after they left. Rob's biggest problem is he can't stay healthy. If he could stay healthy he could have a better year. But he's not going to shoot 40% from three, score 15 pts a game or lead a team to the final four. If he had that ability, he would have shown that at IU at some point. He's shown he can have stretches of decent offense (manly driving to the basket) while playing solid defense, but unless one of these team is offering him 30 minutes a game (and he can stay healthy) I can't imagine we'd see much difference. Very few players switch teams and just become way better merely because of a change of scenario.

    Dane Fife leaves IU staff

    They are paying his contract, so that isn't an issue. Don't forget everyone was/is ok trashing players based rumors, and they're kids for the most part, so I don't see the difference. I am not a huge fan of either btw. I liked Fife and was upset to hear about this. But I am also upset when people speculate that players are smoking weed, not knowing the full side of the story. And if people are siding with DD on this stuff, he's the worst of them all.
