  1. I don’t know about Florida but he has always seemed to be a backup for Bama to me which seems odd to say. They have two top 25 kids they are in good with. If they whiff here or pass they better be pretty sure they are getting one of the two. Clowney I think will end up being great and would love the addition. Scores at all three levels and has a Bosh/Turner vibe to me.
  2. OSU makes sense for him. Holtzman does great with kids like him.
  3. Also pay for themselves to travel places and bring family. They are losers and need to be stopped. It’s embarrassing with the way they act and the crap they pull.
  4. I mean two 5 stars, a top 40 kid and a complete reach by the IU staff as the top performers. Who would have thought?
  5. Already have the TVs for Iowa State with Iowa. Kansas adds more TVs like Colorado, USC, UCLA, and Oregon do.
  6. That’s your problem. One video. Also it’s evident you like your extremes. First 35 kids in Indiana and now a one and done first rounder. The kid has a lot of great offers from Stanford, Indiana, OSU, Xavier, etc. Will he be great? Nobody knows that. It’s projecting. He is a coaches son, nice shot, smart kid, etc. He handles the ball well. Jordan Hulls averaged 16 ppg his senior season. Anthony Leal averaged 18 his senior season. I could go on for ages about D1 kids who averaged less or the same points as a sophomore.
  7. LOL at the dude saying there were 35 kids in Indiana that are like this.
  8. Agree and it’s not like a David William’s situation where we were the only school who offered. High major schools have offered and he has nice height, etc. “His feel, pace, decision making, floor awareness, and shot making abilities were all on display. Very confused on why he is not nationally ranked ”
  9. Well that is the problem. It’s a highlight video. Like I said, Indiana kid circle jerk. Just stop.
  10. Exactly. Plenty of guards we are looking at. I was just basically calling out the ridiculousness of comparing him to 35 other guards in Indiana. People need to calm down on offers. I get it. I didn’t initially like the Woodson hire but then Fife came and I calmed down. He got some good players to come in and I calmed down. It’s like the Smith thing. IU in 2022 is looking at a lot of different things other than PG. It doesn’t look like a need with the three PGs we have. 2023 is different as we lose two of them. Cupp has some potential and is a coach’s son. Just wait to freak out as I have learned as well.
  11. I agree. IU is going for a PG in this class it seems. We have Johnson and Phinisee for at most two years and Lander for how many. Need a backup or someone to take over after Lander.
  12. I mean Xavier, OSU, Kansas State, etc. have offered as well. I mean his team beat Moeller who has multiple D1 players this year. I am sure that 35 Indiana kids have teams that think that highly of him. Yet people on here drool over a kid who went away from big basketball to chase a scoring title instead of playing big boy ball and couldn’t beat a team of this caliber. Also, this kid is doing things on the AAU circuit unlike those 35 other Indiana kids. Boards can be so delusional at times.
  13. Dumb take. Painter got Biggie in the best shape of his life and turned him into an inside/outside big which helped turn him into a draft pick. Without that, he would have never been one. When they enter it becomes about them. They need to have the self control which Biggie didn’t have to succeed. How many top 50 players has Painter had? I think four and 75% of them made an NBA roster and the one that didn’t transferred after his frosh year. Purdue has had a couple others as well outside of the top 50. Let’s not be dumb here and think there is some master sauce. It’s about getting talent. Why do you think Calipari gets so many and K does? There is no secret sauce. Get five stars and top 50 kids and the more you get.
  14. Crean’s problem is he went dumpster diving majorly. He compared Priller to a kid who was drafted and played at Nevada. Kids would come in and out due to his recruiting philosophies and he had no continuity. It’s his problem at Georgia as well. Also he lost a lot of AAU and HS coaches which hurts when Indiana should be a good spot. Archie brought in a lot of talent. We only had like two kids outside of the top 150. It was more related to if his system was working with the type of kids he was recruiting. That’s my opinion at least.
