Different era. Talent is down across the board. Look back at some of the big ten teams from 20 years ago or older and you will see teams stocked with future nba greats.Recruiting has sucked no getting around that. Armaan Franklin would have never been recruited by Knight maybe Leal and Galloway, maybe would have gotten looks. Knight's recruiting kicked ass he didn't dick around with 3 star type players look at 1989 roster go look that up those players were studs ok. Recruiting is awful right now. Just awful.
comparing IU’s talent now to a Knight team is a waste of time. Look around the big ten. How do we compare to current teams? That’s the big question.
the second question I would have, and it’s a simple one, is our team better than the collection of individual talent on it? Is it better than the sum of its parts? Bo Ryan was a master at this. Some coaches have to have elite talent to be any good (our last coach was that way). I expected miller to be closer to a BO Ryan than a Tom Crean. Now, well I just don’t know.
