    His stock has only dropped on a few select mock drafts. Most others, he's still pretty high or at least top 20. Him coming back would be shocking.

    Luke Brown - The next Damon Bailey?

    Is this Luke's dad?

    If he doesn't love IU, then fine. But not going to a school because of negative fans? And your goal is the NBA? Talk about pressure. Try playing for the Knicks, Bulls, Celtics etc. Once you start playing for millions of dollars, the pressure is much more intense. I would think playing for a team with passionate fans would be a benefit, not a hinderance. A learning experience for the big time. I don't want any player coming to IU who can't handle pressure or expectations. That's part of the challenge. I really think this is a smoke screen of some sort. Any parent is going to be concerned, but this should not be the overriding factor. All the schools he's considering are basketball schools that are not immune to negative fans on social media. Death threats and all the non-sense is the by product of internet morons.

    Let's settle this once and for all.

    Did you know !!!!!!!!!!

    Well with his best teams, they get to the Sweet Sixteen. So with this team, I see round of 32. Don't get me wrong though, IU would kill to make it to the tourney, let alone to win a game.

    Painter is doing a good job with basically a one man team. They won't do anything in the tourney again, but we'd certainly switch positions with you.

    Thanks for the feedback. Interesting to know. Hopefully once the dust settles a bit, things will change. This stuff really is about empowerment and experiences for kids (including the players). I get closed practices, but it seems they would have one a week or so where groups like yours could come.

    Do you normally request access etc. during the off season? I would be willing to write the athletic office a letter on you behalf, and I am sure others here would be too. If you want to PM more info about your group etc. and who you normally contact, I would be more than happy to try and help. I'm sure CAM will come to his senses with a little more grassroots effort.

    That's kinda my point. Everyone has "sources" and leaks are so prevalent these days that any and every incident is the end of the world. I don't doubt there was an altercation in the locker room, these guys are sucking it up right now. I played sports my whole life, there's always clubhouse, locker room, or dugout squabbles, especially when you're losing. At least this shows there is some accountability and expectation. If this is an every day issue, that's different.

    I think he's only on the hot seat in the mind of a few fans. He has a 7 year contract. He's going to get at least 4-5 years in which time any sort of hot seat talk will be long gone. We have the right guy.

    Come on now. This is all we're going to get?

    Who are you hearing this from? If this is true, I would assume this player is suspended. If he is not, then I am not buying that there was any serious altercation or security called. Would love to know the player. This stuff isn't out of the ordinary though. I remember in the 90s there were "altercations" all the time. I had a couple of friends who hung out with guys on the team. Today anything and everything is leaked. I would love to know who's calling security as much as who it was for.

    What's up with our crowd?

    He also said this: “Patience is not something a lot of fans have, but this kid (Miller) is going to do a good job. Why? Because he can coach. Most of the coaches I’ve known, can’t coach. You folks are going to appreciate him, but it ain’t gonna happen in a year.” But I don't agree that a coach should "keep fans at bay" and block out any sort of administrative oversight. I think you can control basketball operations while getting along with others; they are not mutually exclusive.

    I heard that Pitino asked for an astronomical salary. So whether he was interested or not, didn't seem to matter based on his demands. I don't want Calipari types at IU.
