  1. I think CMW returns use to CBK days, starting five: ? X 5 As CBK said, "I don't determine who starts, the player do."
  2. I am honored to be able to contribute to the only forum I read and post to HSN.πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘πŸ»
  3. After watching the tournament, I think we've gone from the BIG to the LIL Conferece. I agree with Dolson. The next coach needs to bring a more modern version of. BB to IU and the conference. The BIG is simply embarrassing!
  4. Sorry Turtle I don't see it as pragmatic but you are certainly entitled to your opinion. I think many of. us simply could not tolerate as iniquitous a culture as you. For many of us the ends do not justify such means.
  5. IMO, Dolson commits AD malpractice if he doesn't consider and/or interview Drew. His teams performance checks all the boxes Dolson gave in his interview. You don't spend 10M to get rid of CAM and not consider ALL the best candidates. The possible Indy AAU problem hasn't affected Drew's abillity to recruit to Baylor and if we are expecting the new coach to have a more national reach, this potential problem should not be an impediment. Future W's would solve that problem in either case.
  6. Those certainly were the good ol' days. Compared to the last 20yr, I really miss them.πŸ˜”
  7. Could be wrong, but the Masshole/Patriot comment is what makes me think we were all played in this fiasco. In any event, I could care less about the NBA or the NFL for that matter. I. only care about IU. So to hell with Stevens. Let's see if Dolson can sign Beard.
  8. Bob, I watched the TT game today specifically to see if I could tell the type of coach Beard has become. I saw a very tough minded, smart, gritty style of BB. No more mass substitution like we've seen under our past 2 coaches. When his team was down his best scorer had to sit for Fouls. The team responded with a run and took the lead. He continued with the players thru a TO to let them complete the run. I sas a lot of motion and VERY LITTLE standing on O. Good solid screens and the drivers used them the screens appropriately. D was Man-Man and a lot of pressure on the ball and interrupting passing lanes. Very tenacious and intense. Overall, very enjoyable BB to watch and very reminiscent of the good ol' days under CBK. Only real difference was compared to old days was MUCH MORE up tempo. The TT player constantly sprinted on O and D. Many fastbreak opportunities as a result. I think Beard has become my next target if I'm Dolson. I REALLY enjoyed watching them play today.
  9. Agree! As I read your comments, they really sum up why CAM needs to go. These points are too obvious even for the most casual of BB fans and yet have NEVER BEEN SEEN since CAM's hiring. CAM simply was not what were thought we were getting despite the comments of RMK. So sad for all of us, CAM, the players, and fans.
  10. Send CAM on a year long fishing trip and let Moren coach this team!
  11. I think Glass' contract with CAM's poor record has painted the Admin into corner and they have no clue how to exit the box in which they find themselves. CAM is now a dead man walking and could yet have 3 more nails to place in the coffin if IU loses to PU, 1st game BTT, and possible NIT if bid was received. The optics for them are terrible and completely unacceptable.. They've had some cover due to Covid and no fans being in the stands. Otherwise we could have witnessed CAM and the team suffering unimaginable outrage live and on TV due to the home losses we have had this year. Dolson's comments are telling in not mentioning winning as the top priority for the program. BGleas mentioned this above and noted the other aspects are a a given. The Admin has been willing to limp along for 20 years with poor Coaches. They've done just enough to keep fans at bay. As others have mentioned, they just want to be able to win enough to calm the masses and preserve their $ flowing in from TV, IU apparel and other items, and of coarse donations to to the Varsity Club and Season Tickets. They are still stuck in the "we're never having another RMK at IU again" mode. I have been a season ticket holder for both FB and BB for more than 25 years. I am now at a point of not renewing BB tickets because I think the Admin is just using me at this point. I may keep my FB Season tickets because I do finally believe in CTA. I think the Admin simply stumbled into CTA and Moren for that matter. I don't think either are willful and thoughtful candidates sought by a committed Admin in their respective sports. This Admin is going to have to prove to me that they are committed by their actions. I'm no longer interested in their words. They need to negotiate their way out of this mess and CAM needs to resign this year. They cannot bring him back next year given fans will be returning this year with the Covid Pandemic winding down and they will be merciless on national TV if the same product is on the floor. They need to hire a good coach as a replacement and give their reasons why he is their man and show they are going to work with him and state that compliance will be more mercurial going forward. They need to give him the keys and let him drive the car. They just need to supply the fuel.
  12. I've had to change my photo to a Baghead fan. Reminds of the times when the New Orleans Aints were playing. I think this article sums up the IUBB situation fairly succinctly. There is nothing about the IU admin that gives me ANY hope that Miller will not be returning as HC next year. Covid. did give CAM and the players some cover this year since no fans at AH. Now with the pandemic seemingly winding down this year, there is a good chance some or all of the fans may be able to return to watch the games live at AH. How do we safely get CAM and Dolson into and out of the building when the S*!t show that is now men's IUBB returns for a repeat performance. They will be booed out of the building and an epic embarrassment to be affiliated with this dumpster fire next year! Sad times indeed with no near term end in site. The only way I see out of the current mess is if CAM reigns for the good of the program and himself. With his stubbornness, I don't see that as a viable option either. Seems we'll be in stalemate for the foreseeable future.
  13. I just can't take any more Archie Ball I'm crying UNCLE! I've thrown in the towel. Officially off the CAM train. Thrown out the rest of my Miller Beer. Will never drink that brand again. Will now be the "unknown" FWIUFan until he's replaced!
  14. Man you must have some good stuff in there! Pass that bong!
