  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.

  5. As much as I know this needs to happen and I agree that it's time and needs to happen, I still hate it. I really like Archie. At least what I know publicly, he seems like a good guy and I really thought we had found our guy. It's a real shame it hasn't worked out, and on the personal side I'm sad for Archie and his family, as well as the IU fan base.

  6. Just got a text saying that barring a big ten tournament championship Archie is done. I guess we won’t have to wait long if it’s true.. Edit- also stated it will be a mutual decision so the buyout may not be as big of an issue as we thought. 🤷🏼‍♂️

  10. 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

  11. Figured with it being Senior Day, Al deserved a thread. I don't think his four years were what any of us wanted, but I can honestly say I've enjoyed getting to watch Al Durham the past four years. He played hard and with great emotion on a team that often lacked it. He may be a flawed player, but the kid got better. He went from a guy who was a poor shooter coming in to a guy who has turned into a very reliable shooter as an upper class men. It's not his fault for the teams he played on or the roles he had to attempt to fill; I wish every kid we recruiter was the type of kid Al app

  12. 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

  13. 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.)

  16. 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

  18. 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.

  19. 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

  20. 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

  21. 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.

  22. 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

  24. Wow, this thread has picked up steam, don't even have time to read it all. Earlier, I posted about a buddy that was on the staff of the sweet 16 Valpo team, very close to the Drew's to this day. I texted him over the weekend, asked if he thought Scott would take the IU job if offered. His repose, "basketball is the religion in Indiana, I think he would".

  25. Lately I have been very critical of the program and pretty negative. I believe that it is warranted but some may not see it that way. Indiana Basketball has a special place in my heart and from the early 90's until 2017 I was very very blessed to have very close connections to the program. I would like to share some of those over the next several days and was hoping others would share some great stories about why you love IU basketball or just a great time you had watching etc... Hoping to bring some positivity back to my posts. Here is the story of the day that I knew I would attend Indiana

  27. 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.

  28. 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.

  29. 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.

  30. 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.

  36. 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.

  37. 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

  39. 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?

  43. IU has too much fertile recruiting ground to ever be lateral with Baylor or Texas Tech. The coaches with the right kind of Ego would be lining up for this job. A chance to restore a once proud program. The choices of candidates won’t ever be the problem, the problem will be and has been the administration

  44. Yes. Scott weaseled his way out of that one and the assistant took the fall for it all. I know the entire story with Perea. How he was recruited, how the high school was chosen, etc. Drew and Co tried getting one of my friends to house Perea in Chesterton and go to a different school in northwest indiana before he enrolled at LaLumiere. Also would like to add Hanner was a great kid. He made a few mistakes but so do a lot of kids. He didn't have an easy life. Drew and Co tried taking advantage of that big time.
