  1. Dear IU, Thank you so much for winning this game. - The Mod Team

  2. That's why i sometimes push back on some of the more negative/borderline nasty comments. Not that there's a ton on this board, but they are there. Call me soft, call me whatever, but these are real people. Yes Archie gets paid a lot of money, but he's still seems like a good dude and a husband and a father. It's not like he isn't giving his all. I'm sure many others here have too, but I've been in that spot where you lose your job for whatever reason and have that long drive home. I lost my job once after 7 years in a downsizing. I was the sole income in our family, we had 3 kids u

  3. Hi all...I can't believe it has taken me this long to find you guys. I saw many familiar names here from back in the original Scout Hoosier Nation days (with John Decker). I managed the scholarship grid and etc on that forum and through some of the following reiterations until the technology no longer supported it. Now on this forum, with the help of HoosierFaithful, I think I can bring back some of that information that I've collected over the years. I'm going to try reserve a number of posting spots to accommodate the tables of information from over the years, including a "yearbook" with

  4. Moral victories don’t mean anything but this team is a couple of ball bounces and some poor end-of-game execution away from being a top 15 team. So maddening because they look close at times to breaking through.

  6. A lot of things have been going on at HSN recently. Sadly a lot of it has not been good news. Today, we come with good news. We have added two additional moderators to our team. Please welcome @BGleas and @Inequality as the newest mod squad members. Both these guys are long term members and have been great examples of how we envision HSN members interacting with eachother. Thanks to both of them for their commitment in this new phase. Adding them makes us better immediately. So boys, get to work! 🍻 As a summary, the current mod team is.... @Hoo

  7. It is the current perspective of where things stand with Archie at IU. I could write a fan boy piece about patience, and trusting the process midway through his fourth season, but that's not where we are -- at all. Frankly that would be silly at this point. There is no negative perspective -- this is just where we are in the fourth year of a coaching tenure at a prominent high major college basketball program. The article was full of facts to back up why we are where we are. Oh, and if you are genuinely waiting for the positive article, here it was after the 2019-20 season.

  8. I don't see how Fife belongs in "tier 1" unless solely based on being an ex-IU player.

  9. We lost this game on the 2nd half inbound pass because Archie refused to reward the players that played their butts off to get us a lead in the first.

  10. The fans have been more than patient with Archie but unfortunately for him, and any coach that comes to Bloomington, IU fans understand the game of basketball. We know when we are seeing good basketball and when we are not. We know good offense, good defense, high IQ play and when a team is committed to winning. That's not what we have seen the past four seasons. Even if they made the tournament last season it wouldn't erase how bad they have been this season. When you see guys consistently out of position and the other team basically running a dunk drill or setting up for wide open

  11. Say what you want about the overall performance, but the fight that this team showed is something that you have to love to see. Down 7 with under 2 minutes to play in regulation: 7-0 run to send it to OT Down 6 with under a minute left in OT: 6-0 run to send it to 2OT That is really, really impressive. Kudos to Al for the CLUTCH free throws. (and Hunter for that insane 3.)

  13. I can only speak for myself, but my dislike for him as a coach has nothing to do with that. It's because he whines like a petulant child anytime something doesn't go his way, berates officials with frequency, and rarely gives credit to his opponents when they beat him. Now, my hatred of him as an individual, that does stem from him playing cover up for sexual assaulters and intimidating witnesses. I'm not even sure what you're talking about with a trainer? If you're thinking Izzo is guilty just by association of being at Rape U, you're wrong. Izzo leads a basketball program with a syste

  15. Pretty cool scene after the win. Lander and Leal practicing....and TJD is Leal's rebounder for shots after the game. I know, I know, I know....we can all find faults/complaints. Sometimes it's easier just to enjoy seeing a kid like TJD being a rebounder for Leal after the game. I'm certain when I wake some of the normal crowd will have comments. To me. Pure teammates is what I see.

  16. Thinking more about Archie and the state of the program. Clearly I'm not happy with where things are. To be an at best middle-of-the-pack team in year 4 is not where we all hoped things would be. I thought this turnaround would happen quicker and I've said this numerous times that I'm disappointed with the lack of identity and lack of toughness since Archie got here. I thought those things would be givens with Archie. With all of that said, there has been improvement. The team has gotten incrementally better at most facets every year, even if it's not hugely reflected in the overal

  17. You've brought up Justin Smith a few times now. 19 points with 0 TO is a good game but that isn't a typical game for him. In fact, his stats this season are very similar to those from last season against a much weaker schedule. So it's not as though he left and became an amazing player. He left and became the same player he was at IU. Maybe his leadership is better as you mentioned in another post, I don't know, but I doubt it. https://www.sports-reference.com/cbb/players/justin-smith-3.html I agree with a lot of the rest of your post but maybe stop using Smith as someone who improv

  18. Ok was it me or did the ref that did the tip offs in the overtime throw the ball almost directly over the NW player? Anyway good win. Hopefully this leads to more confidence and makes us strut our stuff more and loosen up! I am so tired of us missing free throws and layups cause we are so tight and us shooting abysmal from the 3 point line.

  19. Not that this means anything to probably anyone but me, but... IU going to Evanston will always hold a special place in my heart. My youngest daughter and I use to make the trek from the Chicagoland suburbs every year from 2001 til we moved to Houston in 2013. It was always a great time win or lose. She's 25 and married, but every phone conversation begins with, "How are our Hoosiers doing?" Such a great kid... The upper rim was always filled with Hoosier fans. Such great memories. My favorite of course was when Rod Wilmont scorched the nets for 31 (9-13 from 3!) in 2007...What a sho

  21. Gang, This is the recruiting forum. We can not have every thread go down the same road. There are plenty of threads in the basketball forum for these non-recruiting discussions. Please and thank you.

  22. I don't see how you can keep your job when in year 2 you lose 12 of 13 with Romeo Langford, in year 3 you lose to Purdue in Bob Knight's return to Assembly Hall, and then in year 4 you miss the tournament when the entire thing is being played in Indiana.

  23. I read the article in the last page and I get this sinking feeling he’s going nowhere this off season. And we will end up putting this team back in a huge hole to dig out of AGAIN. The right hire doesn’t need four years to generate excitement in the base. But if we let this go rock bottom AGAIN it will be. such a horribly run program from the top down. And I mean higher than the head coach.

  24. We need to stop measuring this team on whether it makes the tournament or not. Simply making the tournament does not suddenly make this team a contender, which is what we all want. The IU program we all want simply does not lose this game. They just don't.

  25. You know what? I don’t care. I know there will be many who are unhappy with the win, but this is the Big Ten and our best player gave us practically nothing. We needed a win and we got one. Most teams give up being down 6 with a minute to go and we didn’t. Props to coach and the guys for putting their heads down.

  26. Feel bad for Al. He played his heart out and even though he’s made his share of dumb plays, you always knew he gave it everything he had. Wished this had been a senior day for him to celebrate.

  27. They've earned senior speeches with 4 years of hard work and dedication. I'm sure that don't love the results either, they're more frustrated than any of us on message board, but they've earned senior day speeches.

  28. If he's back next year, it will only be because our administration doesn't want to pay his buyout. No other reason to keep him around. This program is dead in the water right now.

  29. This isn't a post about wanting Crean back or a post saying we shouldn't have fired him, it's not a support of Crean post. With that said, I miss the passion, energy and confidence of his good teams. Take a look at the clip below, that team played with energy, emotion and passion. You could never question the energy and effort of guys like Yogi Ferrell, Troy Williams and Thomas Bryant. They weren't perfect and they had their flaws during their careers, and consistency took time to develop, but they were exciting and played hard and there was excitement. You can never question the en

  31. This was honestly a really good win. How anyone is saying otherwise is dumbfounding. Were there tense moments against another hungry team in a similar situation to us? Of course. But we won by double digits, how can some of you legitimately be unhappy unless you wanted us to lose?

  36. He lost a game he was favored by double digits in by double digits twice that season. Twice. That is rare to see that big a turn around once in 5 years. Archie did it twice. He then brought in the biggest name to come out of Indiana HS basketball since Damon Bailey and lost 12 of 13 games. You can get on the fans here about expectations or whatever but I am telling you right now that Iowa, Michigan, Purdue, Illinois, etc. fans would have been flipping out about that too. I get tired of this idea that Indiana fans are impatient. We are not impatient, our coaching hires have sucked.

  37. I’m a nobody and not a mod but IMO we have way too much anti Archie guys sticking it to pro Archie guys and vice versa. It’s not needed. We are all pro IU.

  38. He’s got super upside. Needs weight (as do most freshman) but is an explosive athlete from what I’ve seen. Won’t help right away. Great work ethic I’m told too. I was down on the kid, because I stupidly looked at his ranking. Yes we need some 5 ⭐️s but we need guys that want to be Hoosiers, he fits the bill. Glad to have him.

  39. Not a soul has mentioned it yet, but what a great job by Archie to let Armaan go make a play instead of drawing something up. He clearly feels comfortable with Armaan in ISO end of half/game situations and he trusted it, even though Armaan was bothered by the ankle. Also, mad props to Armaan who was clearly bothered but found a way to make an impact even before the last shot.

  40. Let's all make a pact. If a regular contributor to the board, like Snowling, publishes an article, or simply an opinion, that everything is not perfect, let's not complain about it being negative. Every regular contributor on here has a right to feel free to post what he/she is thinking. In this case, the article is well-written and contains obvious facts. If someone disagrees with the premise of the thread, feel free to start a thread with a counter-argument about how wonderful our current recruiting is going. If a negative Archie thread is started by an obvious troll, go for it. Ca

  41. If we finish the season playing like we did tonight, I'm not sure Archie gets a fifth year. He's going to lose the entirety of the fan base. He pretty much already has. I have been just about as optimistic as you could be throughout this season, but it's just not working. I like Archie, but tonight has really drained me of any optimism I had left.

  42. Okay. No Speculation. As a result, we have to also get rid of. The entire recruiting forum. Names should not be brought up on the board until the LOI is in hand. Pre-Game threads. Isn't that whole concept about us speculating what may happen in the upcoming game. All threads related to Archie, I suppose we could pin a Biography thread at top so visitors know who the coach is. The Investing thread in the Animal House must certainly go. As should all the "Best Of' threads on there. And, finally, I'll nix the idea I had about a thread to discuss the upcoming

  43. As I said, maybe my thoughts on how IU fans should treat an IU coach are different than yours...And I've always thought there is always some truth, at least to the comic, in a joke... I do think that there's a certain faction around here that wants to move on to the next shiny new object, and don't mind us losing if it'll get us there faster...and that, to me is a shame...I think some believe that people like me, who root for Archie to do well and defend him, are hobbling the program by somehow holding us back from what they see as a necessary coaching change... I see it differently.
