    Hasn't Archie been to as many EE as Painter? Wait... lol... Painter hasn't been to an EE

    https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/why-the-nba-abandoned-roy-hibbert/ This article is not about De'Ron, it's about Roy, but it addresses a lot of the problems old school bigs have in modern basketball. The college game has not evolved at quite the same pace as the NBA game, which is why there are still times where Davis can be impactful but we also saw last year BEFORE he tore his achilles some of the problems Davis faced with modern basketball teams.

    FWIW, TJD liked this tweet associated with my story. Does it mean he agrees or is he just a nice guy that goes out of his way to like coverage of him. I suspect the latter, but take it for what it's worth. Also, shameless plug, please give me a follow on Twitter if you haven't already. Thanks for all of your support HSN!

    I think he wants us to give recruits 300 page mega-threads for each recruit he wants.

    If Shaq was active today, that story never gets written. Teams would be looking for bigs to match up against Shaq as opposed to lean and long 7 footers that run the floor and shoot the 3. Shaq was that dominant. The change has occurred because of the absence of a quality big like Shaq.

    but he couldn't run the floor? or defend ball screens. Jake Forrester is going to look good 3 years from now. He's the "big man" of the future... the mold he is I mean.

    I will agree that I think Brooks is the crown jewel of this class. He may not have had the storied career of Romeo, but I believe he could very well end up that type of talent.

    Trust the process, until we have reason to believe Archie doesn't know what he's doing. We're pushing for Keion and will land him if IU is where he wants to be. Recruiting more than one talented player is not a bad thing, it's just reality Plus my post just pushed us to the 18th page, meaning our odds of landing Keion just bumped up. You're welcome 😏

    If he leaves it’s going to be hilarious. They will be miserable and spend the year complaining about IU being cheaters to get Romeo.

    You leave college so someone might pay you before those and other faults are known....or more exposed. Whether that's in the G League or Europe. If you stick around for the student body (no problem if that's a kids choice) you better hope you have a phenomenal season. Plenty more risk (for the $) in staying...if you think there might be a GM or team who you think will take you in 2nd round. Look at Yogi. Did him staying 1 more year elevate his draft status any? None whatsoever. His hard work made him his $. Plenty of parallels to Carsen.

    Roy's defense is still great around the rim. The big man you just described doesn't describe old school bigs. The running the floor part is the issue.

    KBJ - 17 TJD - 23 TW - 17 283/277 pages until commitments, better get going HSN 3.0!

    More than fine with me! I need entertainment between sets! Especially on leg days 😒

    His recruitment to this date has me mystified. I can’t put my finger on why HN & this Staff hasn’t recognized KBJ as THE most important piece for 2019. Offers from NC, MS, KY and KS vs AL for one and a handful of big ten teams for the other. Maybe CAM realizes KBJ will be a tough get and is not putting all eggs in his basket but I feel we can’t afford not to.

    They’ll say they got screwed because Painter is just too good of a talent identifier/developer. There’s a great “rank the coaches in the Big Ten” thread on their board. Consensus seems to be that Porkchop only ranks behind Izzo and Beilein, and Archie barely cracks the top 10, lol

    The more I see of Keion, the more I want him. He has #1 overall ranking potential.

    Lebron was down 3-1 to Warriors in the Finals. All due respect he's faced more pressure.

    Landing Brooks is about keeping a 5 star player in state and telling KY, NC, MS, Duke, KS or any other high profile school the borders are officially closed. The vision this IU Staff is seeking will turn cloudy if they let Brooks get away. It’s ok to chase outside talent as a backup plan but make these in state kids priority #1.

    I was looking for a blushing emoji but had to settle for this. I really appreciate the feedback. I'll take constructive feedback or story ideas too. I have a long way to go here, although I think I already have Kravitz beat

    Even the 6'10 - 7'2 guys today are mobile. If it was true that a dominant post game was the way to go, you'd see some of the freaks that size who can play defense in the modern NBA take guys in the post more. It's not because they don't have the skills to do it, it's because it isn't as effective.

    Young Shaq was very athletic and would have been fine but the older Shaq couldn't play today.

    Is the implication here that you don’t think we are recruiting him hard enough?

    Romeo Weems (small forward) set to announce soon. All signs leading towards picking MSU. Wonder if that will push Keion away from Sparty...

    I agree. I think this team could be really similar to the 08 team (Sampsons second year); we will have a stud freshman guard, a stud senior big, great coaching and some really nice supporting players.

    Adding Fitzner makes the class even more impressive (if he is countable).
