  1. I think it's too early to tell the favorites. I agree with btown that Purdue with Sindelar could possibly be a bad fit as obviously Johnson will want to play right away as a RS Soph. I could see him wait to watch this season play out and see who emerges as the top QB's in the bigten and surrounding area teams. Don't count out Notre Dame who was in his list of finalists when he picked Clemson. I'm sure they will go after him hard. I do think IU is the best chance to start right away and still play on a quality BigTen team.
  2. I sure hope so. He’s gonna be a big time talent.
  3. https://www.indystar.com/story/sports/high-school/2018/05/21/clemson-qb-hunter-johnson-transfer/628437002/ Color me not surprised. You would think this (along with Peters-UM/Stevens-PSU) would teach Indiana kids to stop going to these programs just to get recruited over but the list continues to grow. I wonder if we can get him this time around? I'm hearing Purdue is in the driver seat sadly.

    Morgan declares for NBA draft

    Elite defender? Please...he's a good defender, for a rookie...He doesn't score, rebound, make assists, block shots or get steals at a rate anyone would consider above average. "Comparing" their seasons is apples to oranges. I'm just simply stating that I was more impressed with the work Morgan did than I was of OG in his rookie season. OG doesn't start for any other team in the NBA this season....the Raptors had a need and he filled it but elite defenders put up more than 2.5 rebounds, .7 steals and .2 blocks per game. To be clear, I don't think Morgan is leaps and bounds better than OG at this point but if I needed to win a game, right now, I'm picking Morgan...if I'm putting together a team for the future I'm picking OG.

    Morgan declares for NBA draft

    I'm factoring in that Juwan was always hurt as a FR/SO playing with a bum shoulder. I could be wrong but I think if Morgan were healthy he would have outplayed OG those first two years. I wasn't impressed by OG his freshmen year and even before he got hurt as a sophomore I never felt like he produced much. Morgan showed the ability to dominate. @BGleasEven starting in the NBA (I presume because of his defense because his stat lines were horrible this season) OG didn't contribute much as a rookie. I agree with you that Morgan wouldn't start over OG in the NBA this season but forgive me if I think what Morgan did last season at IU was more impressive than the 6pts, 2.5rbs and .7 assists per game he mustered as a "starter" in the NBA who only actually got 20 minutes per game because he frankly wasn't productive enough....he was just the only defensive presence they had.

    Morgan declares for NBA draft

    Morgan is and really always has been better than OG, however OG has a much higher ceiling. I see OG continuously improving his jump shot, handles and court presence while also continuing to get bigger/stronger and more formidable on the defensive end of the game. I see Juwan being mostly more of the same with hopefully slightly better shooting and ball handling but never progressing into NBA level talent, especially physically/athletically. Very good college player,...with some work this off-season, could be great but probably never going to make it in the NBA.

    Trayce Jackson-Davis

    He starts off slow but then his coach will call a timeout and BOOM!! Superstar.

    OT IU Baseball

    Aside from the base running errors I couldn't believe my eyes with the two bunting fails and lack of discipline at the plate. These guys swing at EVERYTHING. Houston's 3rd at bat was so awful it was almost embarrassing. I don't know if this is because of the coaching staff or the kids on the team but they lack fundamentals. You can't leave 10+ runners on base and expect to beat an offensive juggernaut like Kentucky. I will say there seems to be a ton of talent on this team. They just need to wake up a bit and focus on little things it takes to win....oh and if a kid can't bunt, don't ask him to with a runner in scoring position and no outs. Just my take.

    There’s nothing stopping Archie from telling the kid “hey man, you earned it but with Davis’ injury situation and Moore’s lack of development we really need a proven post player who can stretch the defense. Take out a student loan and come talk to me in a year or two...I’ll take care if it.”

    Evan Fitzner Commits to IU

    And despite starting every game as a sophomore he only got 15 minutes a game so he wasn't on the floor enough to put up numbers the last two seasons.

    Evan Fitzner Commits to IU

    He also doesn't turn the ball over (avg .6 TOs per game over 3 years) so having a post guy off the bench who takes care of the ball and can shoot is worth a lot so long as he can play solid defense and grab rebounds.

    Fair enough. Well before my time. My point was that I’d never heard of 3 guys all being within a couple points of winning it
