    Purdue post game

    You aren't a nobody, you're an esteemed member of this fine establishment. I think you see all I see and more. We don't have good shooters, plus we have some players with limited ball skills. I think we are easy to defend because we can't seem to keep a defense honest.

    This is true....say what you want about RMK, he would have put a stop to the crowd pulling that crap.

    I like your optimism.

    I don't like that we missed on our prioritized recruit who lives in Indiana. When Funderburke "walked away" so early in his freshman year, that could have cost us another banner......or it allowed us become the best team in the country in '92-'93 with the dreaded knee injury to Henderson keeping us from winning it all. Who knows? I actually don't think we need one and done players right now. The thing about Duke and UK is that if a top recruit is not getting in line with the coaches program there are 5 guys on the bench ready to go in that would start on most teams in the country. How does CAM do this a top flight recruit when the backup is a walk-on? I hope Brooks stays home, but I want results during the season, not excitement about players who have never played a minute for IU.

    Seems like a fair conclusion based on what we see.

    Edward Smith at it again

    Ironic that not making changes to the roster for fear of post season ban has lead to..........

    Edward Smith at it again

    I don't think it is classy to do what Ed did, he does have a right to do it though. Winning fixes many, many things. If we are a top flight program, parents doing dumb stuff would not impact things, but since we don't have an established culture, this probably has a great deal of impact. Since it looks like we are not getting Brooks, and there is rumors of 6 or so players leaving(who knows), there will be a need to find players to fill out a roster. How Archie thins the herd(so to speak), recruits and selects players for next year is the most critical undertaking for the health and well-being of this program that many of us have ever seen. This program is vulnerable to being cast on the scrap heap of once great programs populated by the likes of DePaul, UNLV and maybe UCLA. We are not a top ten program, and I mean not top ten in our own conference . Ed isn't the problem. It goes much deeper because if this guy has the power to tweet us into irrelevance, than I don't know what to think anymore.

    For the record, I have a full head of hair......even after this season. I also have a six pack....wait, wait I drank those yesterday because of this season.

    This is probably not as unpopular as we might think. You may be very right on your assessment.

    I watched it, and your quote about "drastic changes" is all you need to know. Now that he has said this, if we see nothing different going forward, then I will have such little optimism for CAM being able to turn this around ever. Doesn't mean he can't, and my feelings have nothing to do with reality, but we fans want to understand what is being done to make things better.

    Not a shot at coach. Some people blame Glass and I just want to know if he is to blame. I think he did a good job hiring CAM. Maybe CAM doesn't work out, but Glass was not an idiot for hiring him. I am really curious as what is the cause of the collapse this season and why it seems like CAM making obvious decisions to change things. Maybe this team would stink no matter who coached them, I just want to get some sense or insight into why a seemingly quality coach is having the results that he is having.

    I will be more optimistic if Archie makes a programming changing statement before this year is up. Something like not dress players who show no willingness to buy into his system. I don't care if this includes Romeo and Morgan. I don't care if we only dress 4 players and they all are managers. We can't win with this current culture anyway, and any recruits that get turned off because of this are IU players anyway. We should never be afraid to lose recruits who don't want to play the right way.

    Seems like it, but there is no way that Fred is this stupid. He hired CAM to win because I can't imagine he doesn't realize that his life is better when IU wins in basketball. His job could be and should be tied to the success of the basketball team. Why would he hire a guy then stop that guy from doing his job?
