    I give you IU vs. Indiana State 90-69.  Then I give you IU vs IUPFW 92-72.  We are a long way from that crap.

    True, we made stops when we needed and got decent looks on offense although it stalled for a bit.  
     
    Lucky to survive that ft and rebounding performance. 
     
    A good win to build off of. Lander, Kopp, and 53 all should have big confidence boosts after tonight.

    Should have never let it get to there, however. Gotta stop letting teams back in.

    I know we want to win by 30, but how nice is it for a change to have a team that stays composed and makes winning plays with under 2 minutes to go?

    With him concentrating on hoops AND committing to a school like IU, wouldn’t be a bit surprised to see him end up as a 5 star.

    And this is why recruiting is “fluid”
     
    Would these peeps get half the traffic to their sites if they weren’t super “optimistic” about IU landing recruit (insert player that looks IU’s way)?
     
    We do it to ourselves.
     
    Best of luck to Clowney and his family.

    Saying we lost a particular recruit because school 'x' dropped $$ without any concrete evidence smacks of sour grapes to me.  Easy way out to say it was all due to money when there are so many other factors involved.  Never going to land every recruit we target.  If Noah does indeed select Alabama I'll wish him nothing but the best.  Great kid with a great family.  Some of you.........!

    Exactly .
    As I said in my opening post here - I take info I hear and attempt to corroborate it with other info from various sources/sites. If there was a ton of credence to this morning’s chatter, wouldn’t you think some CB picks would start coming in? Or there be some hint or rumors of it on the ‘Bama sites?
    There isn’t anything. And my source still says IU. Granted, that could change - but this guy’s gonna keep the faith.

    I’m not worried about it with this staff. If we get Clowney then I’ll be stoked. If we don’t, I’ll trust that we’ll still get a solid big man.

    Not to jump off topic, but I hope it isn’t lost on everyone the job a certain guy has done in putting this all together: Scott Dolson.
    When the search for the new AD was going on I really thought getting Dolson would be a “Fred Jr” selection. Boy, was I ever wrong. His vision in transitioning IU to a program that would appeal to today’s players (ie: kids wanting to get to the pros) was, in hindsight, nothing short of amazing.
    Woody sells a lot just by being his genuine self. But Dolson made sure to shore up any shortcomings Woody might have had by surrounding him with all the support staff necessary: Matta, Fife, retaining Hunter and Clif and bringing in Yasir, among others.
    I honestly believe we’re gonna be real successful going forward, mainly because for the 1st time since Coach Knight was let go we have competent people who understand what IU Basketball is all about, and have a product/program that can sell itself.

    Guy I get my info from has been pretty accurate in the past, not always right but good track record.
    I always try to take what I hear and then try to confirm it with other sources/sites (which is why I’ve been a lurker until now). At first I wasn’t convinced a kid from SC  would come 8 hours north - the opportunity to play in the ACC in games close to home I thought would be very appealing.
    But from what I’ve been told, that isn’t a deal breaker. The overall consideration has been where he can get to the next level - and Woody’s experience there has really made a difference.
