    Zach McRoberts / Scholarship

    You already forgot about the 20-page argument from last spring?

    Zach McRoberts / Scholarship

    This is one of the dumber “controversies” there’s been on this board in a while. The kid didn’t ask for a scholarship, and Archie didn’t offer one. I don’t get the uproar.

    DeRon Davis update

    Nice stat! I initially thought that those blocks may have come against mostly lower-level non-conference competition, but DeRon had himself a little block party last December against some decent teams (4 against Iowa, 3 against Louisville, 2 against ND). Let’s hope he can bring that to the team this year.

    DeRon Davis update

    I’m no basketball expert, but from what I saw, De’Ron got abused on defense last year. He just doesn’t seem to me to be a good fit in the pack line defense, which I think requires a mobile big man with lateral quickness that can hedge and recover. DeRon does not and will not ever have that ability, and I don’t think it was a coincidence that our defense got much better after he went down last year (although I’m sure the rest of the players getting more comfortable in the system also contributed to that). The high school blocks don’t mean much to me. DeRon was a man among boys in high school — almost two years older than every kid he was playing against. He doesn’t have that advantage in the college game, and he hasn’t shown to be a prolific shot blocker up to this point.

    DeRon Davis update

    I just don’t think his offensive abilities will ever make up for his defensive liabilities, especially with this injury. And he really just doesn’t fit well with Juwan, who needs room to operate in the paint.

    Team Captains

    Crean wasn’t even going to allow Yogi to run the team his senior year. Remember when he would play Yogi off the ball so Blackmon could get time at the point? I’ve always thought that one of the main reasons we got so much better after Blackmon went down in 2015 was that it allowed the ball to always be in Yogi’s hands like it should have been in the first place.

    Around the B1G/NCAA

    We won’t be able to go above .500 against our five toughest non-conference opponents? We’ll probably be favored in all of those games except Duke... Marquette and Louisville at home, Arkansas on the road, and Butler in the Crossroads are all very winnable games. I have no doubt we will at least 3 of them. Dumb analysis.

    My post wasn’t directed toward you at all — was really just joking in response to this topic coming up yet again, haha. (But I am half serious, VBG)
  11. Easy to be flippant about all this (I definitely am), but this is pretty sobering.

    Kevin McHale if he was born 30 years later 😂

    Interrupting this incredibly tired and played out discussion to remind everyone that MJ played against plumbers and milkmen, and the Warriors would sweep any team from the 80s and 90s. Now back to IU Scott and your regularly scheduled programming.
  14. You’re like 6’6 right? That’s gotta be worth $50 at least.
