    Coach Curt Cignetti to INDIANA

    so is Scott Dolson forgiven if Cigs is announced? Phew we've come a long way

    i do not disagree with wanting to be more competitive than one year each decade.

    Scotty must have rubbed you incorrectly somehow or you opinion of him is very strong that he is as incompetent as many other athletic directors at schools in a similar situation as we are. If you think IU football will be the #1 sport at IU in our lifetime it's like trying to get a horse to drink water, you can lead it to the water but you can't force it to drink.

    again Rome isn't built over night you have many calculated risks involved with these decisions.

    so then shame on all the previous IU Athletic Directors for shorting IU football then all this time. yes it is a money maker for sure but what are you expecting Scott to do here? Hire the next Saban, expect him to never leave IU and turn us into a power 5 team and we are going to the rose bowl every other year? You don't do that by not taking risks. IU is a small pea in a large pond. You have to start somewhere. Maybe Hart isn't the right choice, maybe he is who knows. But to say his job is on the line is a little premature if this fails. Now if IUBB fails in two years about the same time IUFB could potentially fail again with this upcoming hiring then sure I'd agree his jobs on the line or he has both feet out the door already

    good thing our #1 focus is on football right? We are not a football school nor will we ever be. Yea the basketball program should be better than it currently is but football is not our top priority from a sports perspective. CMW era is doing solid(could be better sure but also could be worse). So because Dolson possibly misses on this hiring he automatically gets canned? CTA was warranted a contract extension, was it a little premature maybe but you miss 100% of the shots you don't take. he took his shot and sSafe to say Dolson shot his shot and missed sure. Womens bball is doing good, women's volleyball is on the up and coming.

    how is/would Dolson's job on the line? He hasn't even been the AD for more than a few years if I am not mistaken. You can't build Rome overnight, especially with IU and football in same sentence

    when does early signing period end?

    Ware putting up a double double, 3 or 4 blocks and 3 or 4 assists and shooting double digit FT attempts was a big win from a recruiting perspective. Cant forget about Malik either. He put up his share too. If Queen doesn't see what CMW is showcasing with big men, then it wasn't/isn't meant to be

    Game Thread: IU vs FGCU - 11/7 @ 6:30 on BTN

    this was a good test in my mind. I'd rather get tested and challenged within the first two or three games(i know UCONN is game 4 on our schedule) by mid major teams such as FGCU. IMO FGCU is a tourney team when fully healthy. Glad we came away with a win. Team had to figure out adversity right away after FCGU went on a 8-0 to jump ahead by 6 or 7 points. Free Throws we need to bump that % up closer to 75/80% and figure out more on both O and D when Gunn, MM and Banks are on the floor together. Cupps will play plenty of minutes ROY. Ware showed flashes. Trey is our leader.

    crickets. I do not think really anyone knows besides Queen and say his parents.

    2024 PG Daquan Davis

    Adam Howard, Liam and Derik all liked Daquan Davis instagram post of him de-commiting from Providence when it was announced. Maybe because both Liam and Derik know him personally(I know Derik does but unsure if Liam does). Adam liking it is certainly a telling sign to me that IU very much could be the favorite here

    Liam tweeted the interview of TJD last night towards Queen. Liam is doing what he can that is for sure

    Trey coming back next year is big. Another ball handler next to Cupps. Trey will be valuable this year, he may be even more valuable to us next season.
