    Excellent observation on the offensive rebounding. And this is where Jordan, Race, Hunter, and Galloway crashing from the wings comes into play. Having length for longer misses is huge. It also creates putbacks or quick passes to open shooters while the defense is scrambling. This is also why we need some bulldogs that get pissed when they miss and want to get their own rebound, as opposed to hanging their head and moping.

    Agree. Think people are sleeping on Leal and Galloway. Leal because of shooting, and Galloway is a Swiss army knife player. Trey's shot was always ugly, but got worse after he was injured. Those guys are both gym rats, so improvement will happen. Exact type of players we need that love IU, and want to contribute any way possible.

    Remember seeing video and he looked confident. That disappeared over his time here. His shot doesn't look bad, so hopefully he can regain his former form.

    Yep. He's Delray Brooks, Marty Simmons, or Mike Giomi. For the younger generation that says, who? Exactly.

    "Hey Armaan, Xavier Johnson is REALLY looking forward to meeting you!" Good luck in the lane.

    If Fife was part of our resurgence, and showed years of loyalty, I'm sure he would get strong consideration. You would have to think CMW would have strong sway and would want to reward Fife at that point. I hope we enjoy the level of success that this becomes an option.

    Absolutely. This is that gray area you have to operate in to win. You have to always put feelers out to see what options are available. If you know the hot girl's best friend, you'd be wise to ask her to gauge interest and put in a good word for you.

    Good points on system familiarity. He knows packline well, although he got beat off the dribble frequently. His length helps with closeouts and deflections. Offensively he will still be in a slow, methodical, albeit much more efficient, offense. Not sure how much higher his numbers would be due to pace. The ACC isn't nearly as physical as the B1G, so maybe that is appealing. I still get back to the life after basketball factor. Wings his size are pretty common. The odds of him having a lengthy NBA career are still low. One significant injury derails everything. If he stays committed to IU and is part of our resurgence, he and his family are set up well for life due to relationships. Not to mention, mama's social media standing does MUCH better in the state if he stays, assuming she values that.

    Loving the coach was a general reason kids might factor in, not necessarily attributable to Archie. Agree on the body language of kids. They seemed finished mentally. Sometimes the well is just too poisoned in a person's mind to allow a change in thought or feeling about the situation. All of those reasons are why a fresh start is sometimes easier for the player, and also the coach recruiting. If certain players still need to be sold at this point, they may fall into the fresh start category.

    It depends on the situation. Keeping a content kid from the state that loves the school, yes. Keeping a kid that loved the former coach, had negative experiences with fans booing and social media, or just wants a fresh start? Probably not as easy as a new recruit with a blank slate.

    Johnson and Brooks would be incredible.

    I got to talk with Christian at several of Trendon's high school games. He and his family LOVE IU! Appreciate his thoughts on coach Woodson.

    When Rob is in attack mode, he is at his best. He has a nice shot, just obviously lacks confidence at times. I agree that indecision in what the offense is supposed to do could lead to hesitation, and slowing the pace to think instead of just playing. Push the pace. If the drive is there, take it. If the the pass to TJD is there because he outruns plodding big men, make it. If the defense is scrambling to get back and leaves you open for 3, nail it. Maybe CMW gives him the hug Bardo was talking about Rob needing, then kicks him in the @$$ and tells him to get to it!

    Agreed. And the scholarship SHOULD be fair game. It's the schools, not the players. I suspect some kids are going to learn some hard life lessons during this process.

    Definitely have a deadline so kids can't jerk a program around all spring and summer. It will eventually calm down like most things do with time. Once a few kids flop at new schools, or get left without a scholarship at top schools and have to settle for somewhere less than ideal, this new concept of college free agency will lose some of its shine.
