    Come on man. Crean had some good gets, but he had A LOT of misses. ‘09 - no complaints / decent gets in a crappy situation ’10 - Michel situation was a disaster but he landed Vic and Will, so okay. ‘11 - Zeller and that’s it. Abel and Etherington didn’t work out in any capacity. ‘12 - Yogi and that’s it. Rest of the movement was a disaster. ’13 - Vonleh, Williams and Hartman were good gets. Robinson, Fischer and Davis never contributed. Decent class, not great or bad. ‘14 - Holt, Priller, April, Hoetzel...???? Bad. Blackmon and Johnson ... plenty of shortcomings, but fine. ‘15 - Great class. Bryant, OG and Morgan. ’16 - Green, McSwain, Davis ...ok. Jones and Gelon...not so much. As a whole, ‘11, ‘12, ‘14 and ‘16 we’re just bad classes. We should expect classes like ‘15 regularly.

    Thank you. I don’t think the hits come anywhere close to the misses.

    2019 Recruiting Hub

    I find it funny that UK hasn’t technically lost any of the committed players because they weren’t recruiting them. Comical stuff from UK fans/writers always.

    Armaan Franklin

    What’s the consensus here? Are we happy to take this kid with other PG offers still out there? Or do we secretly hope we miss because we want and think we can get a bigger fish? Don’t mean to make it sound like we don’t care about Franklin since he appears to be headed to Purdue. But I don’t get to watch these kids much being in KY.

    Isaiah Stewart

    Do we make the top 5? Anybody have insight beyond an opinion?

    Somebody should tweet this and tag him. That’s good.

    Some people grow up with different influences. I grew up with the IU basketball influence from my father, but got the Yankees baseball / Penn St. football influence from my grandfather. It happened WAY before I even knew what college was, so I’m sorry 🤷🏼‍♂️. Root for who you want to, just be consistent with it.

    No, I don’t think it’s a leap at all. I mean, I guess you could just be saying it’s odd, but that doesn’t fit the sarcastic tone of your post. You’re certainly welcome to attempt a different meaning for your comment though. I’ll apologize if I took it wrong.

    Yeah, I don’t think you or IUScott have any business insinuating that somebody is any less of a IU basketball fan because they grew up a college football fan of a different school. I grew up in Central KY and was a huge IU basketball fan bc my father grew up in Evansville a big Knight / IU fan. He wasnt a football fan in general 🤷🏼‍♂️ so that diminishes my fandom bc I don’t care about IU football? Get real man. I can assure you that you are no more “in the know” or more passionate than I am about IU basketball simply bc I don’t care about IU football or may root for a different team. Where does this sense of superiority come from?

    Exactly, and thanks to an upperclassman in Darius Miller they beat us in the Sweet 16 the year they won it. They’ve had the top recruiting class 10 years in a row right? One title is pretty pathetic IMO with all the talent they’ve had.

    Me thinks Cal needs to learn how to coach the x’s and o’s. Can accumulate all the talent he wants, but lack of experience and coaching burns him every year.

    I think we’re on the same page. And with the fish we are going after (and will be going after in the future) I don’t anticipate there being too many contingency offers.

    I would wager that this does NOT happen with highly ranked kids. I can see it happening with a kid we’d like to have, but wouldn’t be disappointed if we didn’t get. I know I’ve said this before, but from what I’ve gathered, coaches have strategies for offers. It’s a little bit of gambling, but the top kids don’t have those contingencies or you don’t make their lists. Now every acceptance probably re-shuffles most of the offers, but I’d think this type of contingency would come out in the open more often if it was very common.
