    IU Basketball News and Notes

    Admittedly disappointed with the summer recruiting results. Luckily, unlike in previous years, the transfer portal is going to allow us to recruit immediate impact players. Our staff still has plenty of time. Let's see how we end this. The recruiting class of 2023 is to be determined. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6013 using Tapatalk

    UCLA and USC Joining the Big Ten

    I think ND would be a great addition, we are in agreement there. But if we are adding teams in pairs, we'd need to get a better school than Kansas to join with them. I know the idea was floated around at the time when Texas and OU announced their plans to join the SEC, but I think it was all bball fan chatter. I think we'd have to go after another ACC school like FSU or Clemson.

    UCLA and USC Joining the Big Ten

    Just googled it. Found data from 2016-2017 so these numbers are bit dated. ND is in the "South Bend-Elkhart" market. Ranked 96th with at 313,210 TV homes. Kansas would be under the "Wichita-Hutchinson Plus" market. Ranked 66th with 439,760 TV homes. USC and UCLA are in the "LA" market. Ranked #2 with 5,476,830 TV homes, which represents an insane 4.77% of the US.

    ND is somewhat realistic, but Kansas would have never gotten an offer. Yes, their basketball program is worth a ton of money, but still nothing compared to an decent football program. B10 is only interested in expanding media markets and that sweet sweet football $$$. ND & Kansas media markets combined probably doesn't even have half the value of capturing Southern CA.

    As bball fans, conference re-alignment gives no craps about us. It's all about how much money football will bring in. Luckily, these two schools actually have great bball programs along with the football money. It's probably the best schools we could have added.

    2023 General Recruiting Thread (BBall)

    Understood. The roster needs definitely comes first. Even if Coen is an amazing kid with a great family, I trust our coaches! Sent from my ONEPLUS A6013 using Tapatalk

    2023 General Recruiting Thread (BBall)

    I hope that doesn't burn any bridges with the family. From the few tweets I've seen, his mother seems to love the idea of Coen attending IU. I don't want families thinking our coaching staff isn't genuine Sent from my ONEPLUS A6013 using Tapatalk

    College Bball Thread

    It's sad Purdue fans are spreading rumors about one of their own. The video I shared is a month old and shows he's not 400+ lbs. RIP to Caleb. I hope that his family gets all the love and support they need right now. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6013 using Tapatalk

    I think the weight issue is old. His new music videos from the past months showed him as pretty slim. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6013 using Tapatalk

    On Draymond Green's new podcast episode he interviewed Klay Thompson. Klay mentioned struggling on his defense when he was coming back from injury. Gave Will Sheehey a shout-out Said Will was giving him buckets lol Sent from my ONEPLUS A6013 using Tapatalk

    B1G Standings Predictions for 2022/2023

    Matthew Mayer scares me. He gives me Brady Manek vibes. UNC fans wanted him real bad for the same reason

    NIL and IU

    Some old school fans might hate this, but it's the only way the sport can survive moving forward. Everyone and their grandmother can see the hypocrisy of the NCAA and athletic departments raking in millions and millions while the players don't get a single cent. Coaches are regularly the highest paid state employee (lol). Times are changing and there are many other options for young players to get paid and skip college ball all together. As a fan base, we should want the BEST for the athletes. Players actually have a compelling reason to stay in school longer. Instead of going to Euro or the G league, a solid 4th year guy can return for one more season and probably fetch a decent payday. (Armando Bacot comes to mind). It's currently the wild west for NIL. It's going to take a couple years, and probably one big (bad) example, before any official guidelines come down and somewhat regulate the whole thing. Until then, we should just take full advantage and use this opportunity. Just my two cents. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6013 using Tapatalk

    (2022) PF Malik Reneau to INDIANA

    That'd be sweet, but supposedly he's called Oregon his "dream school". I think the close relationship between Nike and their athletic apartment pretty much guarantees they will be able to offer a huge NIL deal. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6013 using Tapatalk

    I hope so too. From what we've heard on the boards, Woody is one hell of a closer. Someone with as much life/basketball experience as him is the perfect person to seal the deal. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6013 using Tapatalk

    National Basketball Transfer Portal

    Anyone know if we had any recruits come down for a visit this weekend? I was at Malibu yesterday and the whole Coaching staff was there. Leal was the only one of our current players I saw with them Sent from my ONEPLUS A6013 using Tapatalk
