About Hoosier82

  1. Romeo Langford

    Haston was a mid 1st round draft pick and DJ was a late 1st rounder so those are pretty terrible examples. If you can get drafted in the first round I think you should leave or get a very healthy insurance policy in the event of an injury. That being said, Morgan isn't going to get drafted in either round so imo he should go talk to GMs and see what if anything he can do to improve his stock next year and see if he can play his way in for 2019
  2. Keion Brooks Jr.

    Don’t take my word for it, check every recruiting ranking there is. Watford has worked up to a consensus top 10 recruit in the class and Brooks is falling out of the top 25 in most if not all. My opinion of Brooks is that he needs a lot of work and has trouble shining when he’s playing against. Again, he’d be nice to have but I want Watford and TJD more. Speak in absolutes all you want but it doesn’t make you correct. Im entitled to my opinion so agree to disagree.
  3. Keion Brooks Jr.

    I don’t think anyone said they dont want him, just that he’s probably not actually 5 star talent and shouldn’t take priority over a guy like Watford who grew up watching his brother in AH rooting for the Hoosiers, donning the Cream and Crimson. Getting Brooks doesn’t guarantee we’ll get other Indiana kids and Archie has recruited plenty others in state
  4. Keion Brooks Jr.

    Agreed, I'd rather Archie make Watford a priority. Brooks seems overrated in my opinion.
  5. Is TV Teddy Finished?

    If that incident was the only issue with Ted then I'd agree but he has a long history of behaving like a jackass, poor officiating performances and drawling way too much attention (mostly negative or at the very least bizarre) for him to keep being put in these high profile positions. My guess the message being sent is less "this is for the UNC game" and more "we're tired of the antics and heat you put on the officiating of our games so straighten up or you're gone".

    That's either inaccurate or just outdated. The NCAA reformed this rule two years ago to allow college kids who don't have an agent to participate in the combine (which happens in May) to come back to school so long as they withdraw from the draft before 10 days after the end of the combine. https://www.cbssports.com/college-basketball/news/ncaa-moves-withdrawal-deadline-for-nba-draft-to-after-combine/

    I have no idea who "Inside the Game" is so I won't try to speak to their legitimacy but none of that makes sense. The combine is in May/withdraw date is in June so Romeo's April announcement won't allow him to know what Newman is doing at all. Furthermore, Newman is on zero mock drafts and doesn't even crack nbadraft.net's big 100 board so something would have to drastically change for a sophomore with seemingly zero draft stock to "go pro" with two years of eligibility on the table. He'll also be the offensive focal point next year with Graham, Myk, and presumably Vick and Azubukie all gone this year.
  8. Rumor floating around.

    What is the draw/benefit of having this at Bankers Life? It only holds 600ish more people. Having a game at a neutral site just for the sake of doing so just dumbs down the atmosphere and screws over season ticket holders.
  9. Rumor floating around.

    While I agree the Red/Blue split was cool when it was played in the Hoosier/RCA Dome it was a terrible venue to watch a basketball game unless you had the best seats available. I've not seen a basketball game at Lucas Oil yet but unless it's significantly better I'd prefer to keep these games on campus.

    He is which is likely why there is an asterisk by his name and also why that squad has more players on it than the other.

    Snubbing Romeo can’t help Vandy get Romeo to a Nike school. Do they already know???
  12. IU vs Rutgers game thread.

    Hartman makes a bucket!!!
  13. IU vs Rutgers game thread.

    He’s the only guy playing hard and showing passion for the game. The rest of the team are going through the motions. Kinda sad
  14. IU vs Rutgers game thread.

    Sadly it was actually 21-4
  15. https://www.azcentral.com/story/sports/heat-index/2018/02/27/sean-miller-fired-arizona-wildcats-coach-recruiting-scandal-fbi-ncaa-wiretap-z/379456002/ The writer who's quoted there is already walking that comment back, saying that he doesn't know this for fact but speculates that it could be the case. This situation is wild. The writer in question still believes Milller will be fired/leave Arizona which makes no sense if he in fact did nothing wrong.
