  1. The reality is that none of us really know enough for this to be an indictment on either Archie OR Jake. I imagine, like most situations in life, there was fault on both sides to some degree. That being said, I really do hate to see it. High program turnover is generally a bad thing. We want to get old and stay old, which one recruit admittedly doesn’t necessarily make or break. Time will tell if this is a trend or not.
  2. They also have a fantastic coach who has had the time to fully emplace his system. I think they will be perennially good for a long time, at least as long as Bennett is there. I also think he is going to break through to the final 4 this year.
  3. I might have to. Seriously though, one of the reasons that I've always enjoyed this community is that even though there are disagreements and even posters who don't like each other, it generally seems that people try to debate and argue with logic and civility. Unfortunately it seems that we have lately had influx of posters who simply like to flame and post idiotic statements with absolutely no merit to them. I don't want to see this place turn into a cesspool like some of the other IU forums on the web. Seriously, anytime I want to be depressed I just go to Peegs and read a few threads. Even after a great win it couldn't be more negative.
  4. I rarely post, generally just a lurker, but seriously? Can you just go back to Peegs with this nonsense? Yes, the administration still wants to win. It is completely ridiculous to suggest otherwise. We paid Crean millions of dollars to go away, simply because we wanted to win. Further, look back a few years and Archie was on EVERYONE'S list of the "best and brightest". Another thing not necessarily directed at you-people who suggest that Glass should be looking at replacing Archie after 2 years are completely ridiculous. Gee, what a great way to attract a high level coach, by giving him 2 years and then firing him. Archie gets at a minimum 2 more years, barring an absolute meltdown.
  5. I was at the game. Not sure if it has been mentioned, but Smith’s body language was absolutely awful.
  6. Not sure I buy there being some huge rift between Smith and Langford. If you watch the replay where Justin and Romeo supposedly “get into it” it appears that Romeo was simply frustrated with the foul call. I rewatched the game partially with the intent to watch how these two interacted, and they seemed to be fine.
  7. Anytime I get the IRS scam call I try to spend as much time as possible on the phone with them, if I’m available. If everyone answered and wasted time they would have to stop Its the same idea as the Nigerian prince email scam. It weeds out 99% of everyone immediately and the scammers don’t waste time. They make their money on the 1% old or gullible enough to fall for it.
  8. JB supposedly doesn’t have an agent which would make it seem more like genuine interest than a negotiating ploy. But he’s also not a young guy, so it’s hard to believe he would really leave now. Time will tell, but I’d be surprised if he left at the end of the day.
  9. Isn’t relevance a silly argument though? It’s all based on the eye of the beholder.
  10. Anyone else feel like Brooks is probably the lowest probability?
  11. I wonder if any of the incoming freshman would be willing/are planning to redshirt. Of the five freshman obviously Romeo is going to be the only likely starter. Hunter will get good minutes as I assume as will Phinissee. The minutes for Forrester could be there, although I think he will have a tougher time seeing the floor as will Damezi. What do you all think?
  12. Romeo retweeted this.... I’m sure it’s nothing...
  13. He's lost 33 games total over the past 5 years at VA. 5 tourney appearances. 1 Elite 8 and 1 Sweet 16. Obviously not a lot of tournament success thus far, but I believe he'll get there eventually. IU has lost over double the amount of games over the past 5 years and missed the tournament 3 times. I'm glad we got Archie, but Tony wouldn't have been a bad hire.
  14. Yeah... Still would have been a good hire regardless of a bad loss in the first round of a tournament. One game does not a coach make.
  15. This. You have to give this kind of thing at least 4 years, assuming we don't pull a Pitt sometime in the next 3 years. Culture takes time to change.
