    Dane Fife leaves IU staff

    Dane Fife leaves IU staff

    If the mystery is solved on Fife’s coaching prospects, why are we up in arms over a guy who went 82-97 as a HC? Yeah, he was an assistant for 10 years at MSU, during which only 1 half-decent mid-major school gave him serious consideration for a Head Coaching role. And even they backed out. Lets compare that track record to someone whose resume includes 20+ years of coaching experience at the highest level, including leading the Knicks’ to their most winningest season in 25 years and counting and a proven ability to bond and relate to players (plenty of YouTube videos out there with former players praising CMW). How is he more of a mystery? Regardless, if Fife is such a loss, he shouldn’t be on the market long and we should expect to see him on the bench of an upper Power 5 team in no time, right?

    (2022) - C Ernest Udeh Jr. to Kansas

    Up to #22 in 247..big move from being previously unranked

    IU Trustee Election

    100% agreed. It’s like he’s having a midlife crisis and is now subjecting all IUBB fans to it. He still actively defends his whole Dawson Garcia debacle, which to me says everything I need to know about judgment, decision-making and ultimately his candidacy..
  5. Not going to litigate the Braden Smith point. I think Hoosierfan2017 has summed up my viewpoints well so I’ll save us both some time. And IMO, Leland Walker is the best in-state PG in 2022.
  6. Nova’s 15-16 rotation consisted all of top 100 guys and their last natty winning team was the same with the exception of Donte and Eric Paschall. I just don’t think today’s elite program building is comparable to the Knight era. Smith is a good player. But there are real limitations there. If he’s not the lead ball handler, he’s a 6’0 ft off-ball guard that is an outside threat but not much else. IMO, I’m not even certain he’s the best in-state 2022 PG.

    Read that as a 5 star. Whoops

    Smith is #5 overall in 2021 class on 247

    (2022) - PF A. J. Casey to Miami

    Thanks for the update. I know when we initially made contact, there were some twitter comments about how they’d like to play together. What a recruiting coup that would be

    CBB: Roy Williams Retires from UNC

    When I saw Miller's name floated earlier this month, I read up on him and came away incredibly impressed. There are a few things that stuck with me that I think are important to consider when looking at Miller as a candidate: 1. Wes Miller took over the UNCG program when he was 27 years old. Regardless of program quality, this is an impressive accomplishment. 2. UNCG has never won a single tourney game in their program's existence. They've been to the tourney 4 times total. 3. Fran McCaffrey coached there for 6 seasons, during which he was able to post one 20-win season. Miller has posted 5 straight with a 74% win percentage. His age and trajectory are really attractive IMO. There are smarter people than I who can discuss how good he is at in-game coaching but by all accounts he is a rock star.

    Saw this screenshot in my IU text chain. They're panicking

    Yup. Sounds like UofI is giving him full court press

    Is Woodson trying to work a sign and trade?!

    Lol calling him names because he chose a career path that didn’t benefit your fan interests. Cmon. Yeah it’s disappointing he didn’t come, but that’s not a reflection of his character

    Beard to Texas.

    He’s a stud. He’s very comfortable navigating today’s recruiting and transfer environment and I have no doubt he’ll rack up 20 win seasons without breaking a sweat. Hiring an alum is making a comeback as the hot trend
