    Well, if it’s between Connor and Walker, I’ll take Walker.

    Well, he can’t be much worse, I suppose. But it looks to me, and again, he isn’t playing great competition in these video but he has a much more well rounded game than Sparks. Actually hit some 3s, not that I expect him to be a stretch 5 or anything.

    Watching the highlights of Malone, it’s hard to know what the huge jump in competition would be like for him. But I think he would be a great addition to the bench. Low risk since it’s not like we’d be banking on huge minutes from him but if he blossoms….

    Goodman phoning in this analysis. Wow. Ballo isn’t a 3 point shooter? Thanks for that. And how lazy is it to ask what Mgbako’s percentage is and then say, I don’t know it but it’s not good. we do need to add shooters and if we don’t with our remaining spots, that could spell trouble. But come on man, show a little effort when you are an “expert”.

    True. And whether or not he can win with the talent is a huge question mark. But, I’m not sure he could do a lot better so far in the portal.

    With just Ballo and Rice? No. But I think Rice could be significantly better than X. And given that we had to replace Ware and X, it’s hard to imagine doing better than these two going into the portal. And adding in Carlyle, Tucker and whoever else does make us significantly better than we have been in terms of talent. That doesn’t mean Woodson will win at a high level. But he is certainly building a roster better than it has been. As long as we get a shooter or two with remaining spots.

    I’m no NIL expert but big names waiting seems….risky? I get the thought that fewer players means a higher possible NIL as teams panic. But, isn’t it possible that the big money goes and all that’s left is bench player money?

    Has anyone seen you, Trilly and Tyme together? Hmmmmm……..

    Totally agree. But that’s also why I think these guys could be program changing. It’s not a high bar at this point.

    It’s true that Woodson is still coach and may screw it up again. But how far back are you going to say that these players are coming off the bench for IU? 25? 30? If IU adds Tucker, Rice, Carlysle, Ballo, and whoever else, that’s a huge upgrade in talent.

    A player can negotiate roles/minutes all they want. But they need to produce. If Tucker (or anyone) plays well enough to get minutes, fine. But if he doesn’t, he should sit. Now, if Woodson wants to risk his job giving minutes to non-producing players, that’s on him. But I doubt even Woodson is going to play someone just because he was “promised” minutes.

    Liam knew the portal haul IU would get so had to go elsewhere…….
  13. Well, if we don’t recruit kids in the portal and Leal is a significant contributor, IU will suck once again. Guessing that’s funny?
  14. Apathy is the right word. IU is a bottom tier sports program. There are exactly two sports that the majority of people care about and IU sucks in both. Hopefully Cig raises the bar. But IU is just not relevant on a national sports scale. And cue the people saying how IU is great at some minor sport.
