    Billy Donovan fired

    its ridiculous to state that last year was not a pretty significant improvement over the previous season. Granted, the bar had been set pretty low with us losing 12 of 13 games that season. Two years ago we basically forfeited a dozen games and it appeared that the staff had completely lost the...

    Kyle is a class act. What is in the water that he has 2 sets of twins and Cov has a set? Crazy

    Line up

    our front court was our strength last year, and we returned all three starters, until the smith transfer. With Smith we would have returned all three starters, 2 seniors and a final year veteran in TJD. Plus we’d have a veteran Race in the mix. losing Smith hurts this year, but we still...

    Line up

    I really don’t understand the comments about our front court being thin, shallow, etc. It’s taken Miller years to get the front court to where it is. It’s a veteran group with 2 players (Brunk and TJD ) in their final year, and another as a veteran junior (Race). The loss of smith hurts us...

    Justin Smith is now a Razorback!

    right. smith was penciled in for 30 plus per game. Now, it’s possible that IU ends up being better, but what would that say about Miller? Either miller knows what he’s doing and we will miss Smith, or the average poster on here is smarter than our head coach, either way, it does help us in...

    Smith's transfer and room for the future

    To me, it’s just interesting to say the least. Mainly because everyone (here) seems to have a completely different opinion of JS as to what I presume Miller must have. The last 2 seasons saw smith as being in the top 2-3 minutes on the team. Coming into last season there was much speculation...

    Justin Smith transfer

    I think you are forgetting Romeo. And, it’s likely that TJD and Lander both go early. Fitzner was recruited as a one year player. Brunk as a two year player. It will be interesting to see if we can get old again after this season. Miller’s teams seemed to have been built to get old from...

    Justin Smith transfer

    Hurts us this season. On a team returning all of its starters he was likely going to be in the top 2-3 players in MPG. We should still be easily a top 25 team, but it hurts. this should help us the following season, when IU will lose Durham, TJD and Brunk (3 other starters). There’s now over...

    ISB Full Show: John Feinstein talks "A Season On The Brink"

    IIRC coach Knights beef was that he was told that this was to be a book focused on the IU basketball team, and not a book focused on himself. of course, it’s hard to distinguish between the two, as coach Knight for all intensive purposes WAS IU basketball.

    2021 IU recruiting thread

    2020 is shaping up to be on paper similar to the 2018 class, with the exception of Hunter: Romeo (5) D. Anderson (100) , Phin (118), Forrestor (140) vs Lander (11) Jordan Geronimo (110), Leal (131), Galloway (133) Of the four recruits in 2018, two lasted a year, one lasted two years, and one...

    Nails it

    He lost me at the end: “All you are doing is bringing negative energy to the program, the players, to the coaching staff, everything. You’re not accomplishing anything. I always thought it was comical how people truly think they’re making a difference when you say things like that. It’s not for...

    Olivier Saar from Wake Forrest.....

    Agreed. how can any IU fan be critical of 2 elite 8s and a S16 in the last four years? until IU has a four year stretch that is better, who are we to talk? We can’t even make 4 NCAA tournaments in a row. If someone states that IU basketball will never have a stretch better than UKs last...

    Pretty good summary on Aminu Mohammed here

    I knew it rhetorical, but not everybody is old enough to have seen these players. Also, I thought it might be possible that one or two posters don't fully understand that there is more to shooting than 3pt%, and that a player can develop his shot, and find and develop new ways to be efficient...

    Pretty good summary on Aminu Mohammed here

    For both players, hard work and a competitive nature. Jordan added some offense to his arsenal, specifically the turnaround jumper that was a deadly weapon later in his career. Check out this video NOTE: Cheaney is on "D" in some of these highlights

    Olivier Saar from Wake Forrest.....

    you said in an earlier post : “Inside-Out, 3 and 4 year players, balanced roster, and getting old and staying old. IU will win big, soon. Getting old, Yes. (We return all 5 starters). We were old last year, we are old this year. Staying old? TBD. In 21-22 we will likely have 4 new...

    Olivier Saar from Wake Forrest.....

    I don’t see that as his model. What 3-4 year players? You mean Durham, Green, Davis, and Smith? This will be Miller’s fourth year, and he returns all five starters. He may never have a team this experienced again. But, it’s a mixture of mostly kids that play a ton that he didn’t recruit...

    Bart Torvik has IU up to #16 for next season

    Those expectations mirror what I had for last season. I was left feeling pretty disappointed. I understand that the Big Ten was as deep as it has ever been, but that says as much about the top of the conference being as weak as it’s ever been as it does about the bottom being strong. In any...

    All-TIme Indiana Basketball Starting 5 (link)

    IIRC Knight suggested playing the national championship team in international play, rather than an all star team. It’s an interesting notion. I’m guessing that either the 75 team or 76 team would be able to be beat a collection of players from different years. Yes, I understand that a common...

    I’m not sure. I have one username. Ever wondered how so many people that have recently “joined “ this forum know about obsolete forums and posters that haven’t been around for decades? Unfortunately there are a bunch of people misrepresenting themselves here. And, ironies of ironies, they...
