  1. Past hour
  2. Pacers vs Cavs Series

    Jefferson I think we could decline and save 6 million
  3. Romeo Langford

    Don't worry, the KU poster who claims that Self and Romeo did meet this week is supposed to reveal information from the "meeting" today, if he stays silent, then we will know it was bunk, probably is bunk anyway. However if there is indeed news about it you can bet things will be stirred up on here. In the words of the KU poster, things are getting interesting with Romeo.

  5. Romeo Langford

    I am trying to figure out how this thread has gone silent for five hours!!
  6. 2018-19 B10 opponents

    He did say Romeo would put us in contention for the top. Lets see if he updates this in a month or so after the transfers get setled.
  7. Pacers vs Cavs Series

    We have Vic on the cheap for another 3 years after this one. 1 more reason some of us loved the trade for Vic over Paul George.....we have Vic for only $21 Million per year. Other players who make the same as Victor are Enes Kanter, LaMarcus Aldridge, Rudy Gobert. I think everyone besides Robinson is signed up for next year too.
  8. Romeo Langford

    Just had a thought....Lebron is Romeos favorite player....what happens when Vic and the Pacers beat Lebron in 6? 😳😳😳
  9. Trendon Watford

    It’s almost impossible to win one of these things. Let’s just stack up as many superiorly talented players as we can and not over think it. Fill in the pieces as best as we can as we go along but don’t force it...No reason to sign average players and trap ourselves in for 4 years bc we think we have to fill in whatever specific need. That’s a recipe for sustained mediocrity imo. I really think this staff gets it....dream big or be bang average like every other big 10 team.
  10. Trendon Watford

    Full transparency, my heads spinning with this 2019 stuff. The watford stuff, the in state kids, the 5 stars offered, the several guards offered, our current roster, incoming freshman, how all the pieces would fit. I’m(I being a regular joe shmo) worried about the amount of front court players we have and are actively recruiting. But what I do know is that Archie, Schilling, Bruiser and Ostrom have a well developed plan and I have the most trust in these guys to execute.

  12. Pacers vs Cavs Series

    Agree that Yogi’s size is detrimental to his defensive capabilities, but it wouldn’t be from a lack of effort.
  13. Pacers vs Cavs Series

    True about Yogi. I just don’t know what’s in store for SC. I like him and hope that he stays, but don’t know if the P’s are going to keep him long term. I like Al, too. I thought that I heard Buckner say at one point this season that he may retire, or was at least considering it after the season. Although he may be feeling rejuvenated with this team now. It’s hard to tell at this point.
  14. Trendon Watford

    At 200 minutes a game, 3. 8 man rotation can each get exactly 25 minutes per game.
  15. Little 500

    Lol I think many of us date ourselves from time to time A few friends and I formed a Mini 500 team (the trike race), and by my years at IU, guys were also on Mini 500 teams. Our team was named St. Pauli Girls because we went to St. Paul’s Catholic Church on campus. We got that past the censors with that explanation (which was 100% true); of course, being on a tight budget, we were fortunate to receive sponsorship in the form of free t-shirts from a local watering hole with, you guessed it, St. Pauli girls on the front. Hours of actual training resulted in a great time but also a disqualification for not staying in the lines. It was harder than it looked! I was reminded during today’s broadcast that Theta attempted to qualify a women’s team in the Little 500 in 1987 and came up short. The following year, the Women’s Little 500 began. The best thing I got out of that Mini 500 and some relay race that a bunch of us also entered that weekend was a sweatshirt that said “IU Foundation” on the front, and I still have it.
  16. Pacers vs Cavs Series

    This might make some people mad.. but for what we need, Cory Joesph is better than Yogi.
  17. Pacers vs Cavs Series

    Yogi isn't coming here to be a 3rd PG though.. Joe Young is a solid "3rd PG". Jefferson... if he is willing to take way less money is a solid "3rd center" for 3-4min stretches. GR3 will probably move on.. though idk if that will help him.
  18. Pacers vs Cavs Series

    I’m sure that AG could play either position. Aaaand I really like Bog, but Jefferson, GR3 and Joe Young can find work elsewhere. Get us some more Hoosiers and watch the chemistry soar to another level. Don’t get me wrong, I like GR3. I just think that he hasn’t given me any inclination that he’s anything more than a bench guy that can produce on occasion. I love what 85% of our roster brings to the table though!
  19. Pacers vs Cavs Series

    I just think Bog playing with Vic is what you want because he is 40% from 3. Maybe Gordon could play the 4.
  20. Pacers vs Cavs Series

    I think that the Cavs will be demolished in a year or two from now.. 🤷🏻‍♂️
  21. Pacers vs Cavs Series

    I know this might sound a little crazy, but... I’d like to see us add a couple of Hoosiers if at all possible. Hear me out.. I know that Yogi is signed for one more season in Dallas and I’m not sure exactly what his contract entails. However, I’d love to see him land with Vic and get some run with the home team. Cody Zeller. I understand that he hasn’t lived up to his draft position, but feel like he’s in the same position in Charlotte that Vic was in Orlando. He’s serviceable and would be able to contribute right away. Troy Williams. I don’t understand why teams keep overlooking the kid. I’ve watched him play several times over the last two seasons and when given the opportunity, he produces. Those three CAN play at this level and if nothing else, could serve us well in the rotation. Now, don’t get me wrong, I want to land some big names, but I also understand that Indiana isn’t what some call a destination spot for stars in their prime. That being said, these Hoosiers know what the state of Indiana is all about. I’d like to see us get a little more physical too. So a guy like Julius Randle would be a welcomed addition. I really like the idea of us going after Gordon, too. I just trust that KP knows what he’s doing and will land everyone that I mentioned! 😂
  22. Pacers vs Cavs Series

    If we drop Bog for Aaron Gordon I'll be furious. Maybe we get him and he starts for Thad. Idk. Quite honestly I just think our 21-22 year old 6'11 guys just need more experience. A year from now.. these same rosters, we WHIP the Cavs. Turner and Sabonis are going to be forces.
  23. Trendon Watford

    Fine with me. Sink or swim.
  24. Trendon Watford

    Duke and Kansas usually only play 7 or 8 players in their rotation and that is why you see Duke have a lot of transfers.
  25. Pacers vs Cavs Series

    Pacers are in a PRIME position to add some major pieces the next 2 offseasons. Vic is on a cheap deal (relative to his skill) for 3 more years. They will almost certainly decline Jefferson's $10m deal and our only major FA is Robinson III. If we wanted to make a move on a star, decline Bogdanovic and shoot for someone like Aaron Gordon. Maybe Thad Young opts out instead (which would hurt) but we still land someone like Gordon. Or this all waits for an offseason and we're back in the same place next offseason. All possibilities because Vic is locked up.
  26. Trendon Watford

    Per HPBlueChip on Twitter, “Don't celebrate yet Hoosier fans but a source close to the IU program told me today that IU has the inside track with three 5* juniors: 6-9 Matthew Hurt (MN), 6-9 Trayce Jackson-Davis (IN) & 6-8 Trendon Watford (AL)” Great to hear we are in the mix for such exceptional talent! On Arch to determine which guys have the personality to buy-in to the program.
