  1. I think the bolded is likely to protect from questions related to COVID. Will probably see that more often now with guidelines about quarantines and such. I read it as: we are not going to answer any questions about the details of their illnesses, so don’t ask. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hoosier Fan Fest

    General observations from last night: what an awesome event. Such a different vibe than Hoosier Hysteria and with every courtside seat full ($250) and 1/3 to 1/2 of the lower bowl full, they made a lot of money to split amongst the team. - CJ Gunn seems way taller than advertised. At one point he was standing with Kaleb and Malik and seemed at most 1-2 inches shorter than Malik and about the same height as Kaleb. Also freak athlete which I wasn’t expecting. He tried to throw down some absurd dunks. He’s really long too so as he puts on weight could see him becoming really valuable later in his career. - Kaleb Banks: Also really athletic, didn’t see as much from him last night but stroke looks good too. - Malik Reneau: Big frame and he already moved very well. He was comfortable getting the ball off the glass, bringing it up, trying to break people down from the perimeter. He had a half spin to a one footed 10-12 footer that looked smooth. Also just bumped Logan out of the way on a take to the rim and laid it in left handed. He’s not going to be physically outmatched as a freshman when he gets time. - Jalen Hood-Schifino: obviously just a three point contest but his stroke looks excellent. He will demand someone to guard him out there. Very big for a guard. Most impressive thing to me is that he moves like a pro. Just glides around the court, covers a TON of ground with step backs and shifty dribbles. Threw a no look pass in transition for a layup that was great. He also has a huge body for a point guard. At the end of the scrimmage he stood X up at the perimeter, definitely fouled him, and took the ball the other way. It wasn’t a clean play but I don’t think he’s going to get bullied by anyone in the BIG. - Tamar Bates: probably the most impressive changes from last season in my opinion (even though it’s just a three point contest and rough open gym). He looks every bit of 20 lbs heavier. His shot looked very smooth in the 3pt contest and in the open run. He had MUCH less jerkiness to his game and along with JHS just looked like he was moving at a different speed and gliding all over the court. Sorry for the long post but I promised I would overreact and take way more from this event than is probably responsible! Lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hoosier Fan Fest

    We are making the trip to Fan Fest next weekend for the first time with our 10 month old daughter! Going to get there around noon and then stay the night in Bloomington afterwards. For those who went last year, any details that you found to be awesome or things that you would recommend? Personally pumped to see the freshman and overreact to how much they'll contribute 6 months from now
  4. I haven’t read his interviews about any other schools obviously, but man that is about as positive a review as you could possibly give right before you make a decision Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Is there anything substantial to the random Twitter accounts saying good news from Trayce today? I always assume those are people who read one sentence from peegs and then spin it all over Twitter lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    2022-2023 IUBB Roster Projection

    With the addition of Malik and Dexter, along with Race and hopefully Trayce coming back, our 7 man rotation could consist of: 1. Preseason national AA (TJD) 2. Big Ten Honorable Mention (X) 3. Big Ten Honorable Mention (Race) 4. Conference DPOY (Dexter) 5. 5-star guard (JHS) 6. 5-star guard (Tamar) 7. 5-star big (Malik) That leaves: Miller (former starter) Trey (starter minutes, energy/impact guy) JG (who we all hope makes a huge leap) Wow that’s a good problem to have.

    I think whats wild is if this rotation shortens to 8 at the end of the year (which I think it needs to if you look at the teams winning titles), you will probably have 2-3 guys not playing that could reasonably be getting starter minutes. Trey, Miller, JG, Tamar?

    If we are hoping: - X and JHS eat up almost all of the guard minutes along with hopefully Tamar - Dennis and JG play the three - Race/Malik/JG getting 4 minutes - TJD getting almost all the five minutes Where the heck do Kopp/Galloway’s minutes go? I know this is a good problem to have but I am having a hard time seeing more than spot minutes for two guys that got starter minutes most of the year. I don’t think they both drop down to playing scrub minutes but if we are upgrading all these spots maybe it just has to happen that way?

    I think the big gamble with running someone off or asking someone to leave is that you better make sure you win big as a result. If those guys leaving turns you into a perennial power again, it doesn’t matter, because kids will want to come play for a top of the BIG Indiana. But if you have one season of success and then need to dip back into those waters after a down year, they may not be as ready to drop everything for us. I personally love Leal and think it would be awkward to ask not only a Mr. Basketball, but a Bloomington native to leave.

    Who was on this visit with him family wise? Hopefully everyone who was worried about him being far from home so woody could convince them and we don’t have to worry that’ll change his mind about that later Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Where would adding him put our class nationally? Two 5 stars, two 4 stars in Big Ten has to be first or second in the conference right? Not that I’m buying into this hype about breakfast…. Ok I’m buying it a little Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    He’s been fairly positive regarding IU over the last year but there’s always been a sour grapes vibe. And his brother blames IU for him not succeeding. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  15. If they come back we are going to be really good y’all. I know the grief over getting new guys, shooters, etc. but imagine what this team would’ve been if X performed all year like he did the last 10 games. Add in a 5 star backcourt mate? We would most likely start 3 preseason all BIG players and a 5 star guard with another coming first off bench…as Michael Scott would say, I’m ready to get hurt again Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
