    71-70 IU. Bullish on IU right now and think the run comtinues on.

    Vandy. 55/30/15 vandy, iu, Kansas imo edit* i think that could trend higher for IU fwiw. Not so much for the other two.

    So the narrative now is that we’re not getting him because some other school is doing shady stuff? How many times have we lost top kids out to other schools for neferious reasons? Seems like that’s been going on for 20 years. very well could be true mind you. Still sitting here rolling my eyes either way.

    Of course. Garland wouldn’t have considered Vandy if he didn’t didn’t think they’d get shittu / romeo so he went first. whats your point? He’s going to vandy?

    Settles that then. Thanks for humbling me.

    No you do. Thinking a 17/18 year old boy has more pull than a head coach is ridiculous. The league argument is stupid too. Ones a 5/10 league and the other is like a 4/10 so don’t act like the gap is wild.

    You guys are underestimating Bryce Drew IMO. Also bagged two 5 stars already. 124–49 (.717) (valpo) 139-63 (.688) (Dayton)

    Good post. This stuff can consume you year round and it definitely got out of hand for me. Sometimes you just need a break away from it all and time to put things in perspective. I took most of this year off like I’ve mentioned but I’m back now and just enjoying the games again for the first time in a while. It’s just basketball at the end of the day and the amount of mental energy a lot of us put into the program is not healthy and can get out of control. A little off topic but can you remember a time that IU seemed to get noticeably better toward the end of the year?! How awesome is this.

    Massive plus one.

    Drew is an excellent coach. This season is a blip. They have great players coming in and Drew is obviously a beast at recruiting. Maybe Romeo likes the area better, the style of play, his vision for romeo, the school, the conference, and might just have a better relationship with the staff. People get caught up on history but new projections and making something great that has never been before has value in a different but equal way too. I’ve always hated the style of play in the big 10 and think it’s set the conference back. It’s not conducive to NBA styles like the ACC or SEC. Maybe that’s changed but i don’t watch religiously anymore. We don’t know if Archie’s personality attracts top players but we do know Drew does. I had to take most of this year off for the first time in my life. 25 years of losing took its toll on me and It was obvious this would be yet another garbage team. I definitely had a mini meltdown on here lol. Taking the year off has been amazing and stress free. I’m ready to ease my way back into it with a hopefully less intense care about results now and moving forward. Until Archie lands a top 20 player I’ll always maintain that it’s a long shot for them. We’ve got a chance though and that’s enough for the less stressed out IU fan in me.

    My dad is a southern indiana HS ref (57, gets big games) and he's been hearing that the pressure to go to IU has been weighing on Romeo (in a positive way?). He thinks he's going to vandy but I thought I'd pass this along.
  12. Romeo Langford

    That's not true at all Scott. You can demand more than 21 points in a half. You can say that NIT IS NOT ACCEPTABLE. The PRESSURE needs to be on the program at all times.
  13. Romeo Langford

    Just demand results. That's all we need to do. We're either a big program or we're not. The pressure should be applied.
  14. Romeo Langford

    We need to demand top 10 results. I won't stand for terrible results and neither should anyone else.
  15. Romeo Langford

    I'm tired of iu fans getting excited and getting burned like I have for 25 years. More pressure needs to be put on the program. No more blind woo-hoo bull
