  2. With a huge assist from Nick Baumgart, we had a story on Lander reclassifying back in October. Others on the beat called it "wild speculation" at the time. LOL. Nick dropped the perfect dime on this one, I just layed it in. https://www.thedailyhoosier.com/iu-basketball-recruiting-the-perfect-solution-for-indianas-2020-point-guard-needs/

  3. It did say that Maryland took a commit from a similar sized wing and has since slowed down communication. I think the big 3 contenders have consistently been Indiana, Louisville, and Maryland, so I would categorize that as significant.

  7. That's really an odd way of looking at it...who really cares if it's 23 vs. 33 years since your national championship? Either way, it's been awhile. I'm much more interested in the current state of the program than exactly how many years it's been since IU Basketball's last national championship. I feel blessed to have witnessed three. Most fans at most schools (here's looking at you, toiletmakers) have never seen their team win one.. I agree though...I'm ready for another one. I'll say this...I don't mind intelligent debate. I have a grand total of four members on my ignore list an

  13. I don't think you understand Bledsoe's academics. On cheating to the administrative level which may or may not involve the coach, Cal's record of kids suddenly qualifying or qualifying under odd circumstances is pretty clear (you know that someone sat for Rose's SAT, right?). Cal left two schools with vacated FF's coming to UK. If you think he's clean, well, ok.

  15. With this news, 2 million new gun owners in first half of 2020 I thought this thread relevant... I had guns as a teen and young adult (CVA 50 cal mountain rifle, Remington single shot .410) but never a handgun. Had to qualify every year in the military (.45 and M-16) but with kids in the house, I wouldn't have one... Went out yesterday and bought a Glock 48 9mm. Scheduled a gun course for me and my wife (she has shot one before but it's been 35 years), and an LTC class after that. Looking for a biometric safe now...

  17. Oh I don't think there is any question Anthony Davis's family was paid and Eric Bledsoe's grades were "fixed", among other very shady things that have happened with Kentucky recruits (Terrence Jones' last minute flip, for example). You can question how involved Teflon John was in each situation, but I have zero doubt he knows and doesn't discourage the cheating.

  18. In one of those decisions that make you go WTF? The State of Kentucky is allowing the Louisville FC (soccer) stadium to open at 50% capacity on July 11th. The stadium seats approximately 15.300 people, so you are looking at about 7,600 fans. Meanwhile, on July 12th, NASCAR comes to Kentucky Speedway. The grandstands there hold about 86,000 people. The State is allowing, get this, ZERO attendance at the race. So, the state is effectively saying it's okay to cram 7,600 people into a space designed for 15,300, but, one day later, it's NOT okay for 1 person to be in a sp

  20. Yes agree, but we should now have different "looks" now in lineups, regardless who starts, as the lineups develop over the season. Rob / Lander / Al / Hunter / TJD, or Rob / Al / Hunter / Race / TJD, or Rob / Lander / Al / Race / TJD, etc. I see Rob and TJD being "locks" but Rob's starting/significant minutes is all about his health, we know he didn't start for much of last season because of his health. We clearly play better when he's healthy and playing significant minutes, here's to hoping. But it could also be Lander / Al / Hunter / Race / TJD (which is actually a nic

  21. Always enjoy these articles. I also enjoy on occasion to re-read our original thread on recruits. One thing I really like about our staff is it seems when they want something to be quiet the keep it quiet. Archie said in this article they started having those discussions last fall about him reclassifying....but I couldn't find a comment or article anywhere until February of 2020 about Lander even possibly reclassifying. Anyway look forward to watching Lander play and play right away. Love Rob P but Lander has a gear Rob doesn't. Should help facilitate the pick up in pace Archie's been wa

  23. If everything came together F Hunter F Thompson C TJD G Phinisee G Lander That starting five has the components for success. The rotation has nice pieces off the bench when you look at Brunk, Durham and Franklin. Then you’ve got the three remaining freshmen to sprinkle in: Geronimo Galloway Leal Unlike the past several years, you have a roster that makes sense and where the pieces fit together.

  24. If Jerome takes that next step, it will be a win-win with Justin gone too. Based on a variety of factors, that could be a nice upgrade for what we need done on the court. The loss of Justin would only matter if the loss of depth becomes critical. In ‘20 as a team, IU stepped forward and was a tourney team. You’ve got to start somewhere. This ‘21 team has a nice chance to take a big jump when you look at the upperclassmen, an experienced stud in TJD and on and on. We may be underestimated. This is a nice chance for Archie to get some big wins and get the momentum feeling like a snow

  26. Earlier this week he said that Nebraska was closer to winning a championship. Most people reading that would think he meant as of right now they have a better chance of winning. I guess he meant they have won a championship most recently than we have yet I basketball has been in a championship game more recently.

  27. I’m not going to write an essay on it but Indiana has access to tremendous in state basketball talent that is simply lacking in Nebraska for football. They are in no position to go and get an Irving Fryar out of New Jersey as they once did. Can they be good and maybe win the junior division? Maybe at some point. But it’s an unforeseeable leap to think they could beat anyone in the senior division, then go in the playoff and do any damage against the SEC or Clemson. IU’s potential is far greater. Archie is suffering from a rebuild but he’s getting close to developing a sound roster

  28. I knew going in we wouldn't have a highly ranked class, but I'm really happy with all of our commits so far. All of our commits are top 1000 except Fiacable (#49 OG is 970, and he's #50 OG, so he's got to be right there), and our punter. Our current average is .8642 which is quite a bit higher than 2019 which was our best class ever in the rankings era. 2019 was a .8577 average. This year's average of .8642 is the equivalent of the 650th overall player in the class, and 2019 would have been the equivalent of the 922nd ranked player in that year's class. Our overall ranking won't be n

  29. To the.mods out there could you please ban Sark because he is ruining a lot of good conversations on this board. He is a troll and he is just here to get into arguments and brings no actual knowledge of the game to this board. He is shown facts numerous times but will still argue with even when he is proven wrong.

  30. There's plenty of proof for those who are willing to see. Sure, there's some unproven smoke (and a lot of it) to go along with the actual findings and admissions, but if you are willing to believe that a ballplayer who barely passed Algebra I and couldn't form complete sentences suddenly became a whiz in advanced algebra, then you're simply too dense to have a meaningful conversation with. Today's smoke is also tomorrow's proof, so keep being willfully blind or better yet, go over to Rupp Rafters where you belong. You're a time-waster who literally adds nothing to the conversation and I

  34. Tell you what....Allen keeps pulling kids out of Florida has me loving this guy even more. I've always wanted IU to recruit Florida and it's not like we are grabbing a kid here and there....we are building a legit presence in some of these areas. I know we won't get what the big boys down there want but I've always felt a 3 star from Florida is similar to a 4 star from the Midwest. Not a knock on the local kids from Indiana or wherever..... but Florida football is insanely talented. So glad we keep bringing kids up from there. Pound our state but keep bringing up Florida kids.

  35. I wish I was as optimistic as you are about football...I can't imagine fall without a football season, as this summer has been strange enough without baseball, but I am just not convinced they will be able to play this season. I hope I am wrong and they figure it out. My best guess is they will play (NFL), but the season will be altered/shortened. It seems like it has been forever since I watched IU in the Big ten tourney...

  42. Ha. I was concerned about temperature regulation also...and my wife will tell you I am lazy as well. So, crazy story with this purchase. I was unpacking it to assemble and the last piece I pulled out of the box was the top section...only to find out it had been smashed in, probably by a forklift. The lid was smashed in about 4 inches with paint scrapped off... and upon careful examination some of the other sections didn't look quite perfectly circular. I contacted Home Depot and it was the last one they had in stock and the manager checked and none of the other stores in district had any

  44. Just because Hubbard was offended doesn't give him the right to threaten to quit. I don't understand that at all. These guys are so tough and so progressive, but yet they take to Twitter to do all their yapping. Jamal Adams is same way with the crap he spewed about Brees. There is so much hypocritical bs going on its absurd. I'm an absolute huge Gundy fan.
