    Live Period Tracker

    I play around on some of the flight tracking websites (my Dad has his pilot's license) and I've noticed a couple planes that IU seems to use for recruiting purposes. During the Peach Jam there was one plane that left Bloomington and was flying back and forth between different events (multiple times a day). Another flight matched when Archie was reported to be out in southern California at an event. It looks like they are now using a private charter service based out of Indianapolis.

    Armaan Franklin Commits to IU

    They've been doing multiple in-home visits in different states on the same day. Flew straight from the Watford visit in Alabama to the Brooks visit in Ft. Wayne last weekend.

    2018 coaching vacancies

    I agree with you on Pitt being a good fit for Crean. He just strikes me as more of a Midwest guy than an SEC guy. Had some pretty good success recruiting in neighboring Ohio over the years. Also, for whatever reason Pitt reminds me of Marquette. Guess its just the blue collar thing with Pitt and Milwaukee.

    This may be old news, but I pulled up the trusty Flight Aware and it shows a big 737 landing in Bloomington around lunchtime originating from Newark. I'm sure that was them. Flight Aware isn't only for coaching search threads lol.
  5. One of Crean's big selling points to recruits during his time here was that they could come to IU and get a degree in 3 years. Can't really be angry at guys who come here, play hard, get a degree and then follow their dreams professionally (it would sting a little bit if Juwan took a grad transfer). Lots of people were dropping the "get your passport ready" jokes to Troy Williams when he left. He's gotten more NBA minutes than almost anyone expected. Losing Juwan would really hurt us next year, but I wouldn't begrudge him a bit.

    Markese Stepp Decommits

    IU picked up a couple crystal ball predictions on Stepp last night, including one from Steve Wiltfong. I don't follow the football predictions that closely, so I don't know how often they change them.
