    Morgan withdraws from NBA draft

    is big good for IU fans?

    Romeo Langford

    Because he wore red shoes? Or for other reasons?

    My worry is this. When Romeo set the announcement date and location he was strongly leaning IU but in the last couple of weeks has started thinking Kansas and the IU staff got wind of that, which is why we saw the flurry of guard offers and why Mr. Langford started giving interviews about how people should be a Romeo fan first and and a fan of their school second. Would also explain why Quentin Grimes went from telling reporters he thought Romeo would go to IU to telling Kansas coaches and media that he was confident Romeo would go to Kansas. Would also explain why our insiders had such confidence a few weeks back.

    I’m sitting at a baseball practice for 8 year olds in Columbus, Ohio. One of my sons coaches went to IU about fifteen years back and has lived in Columbus since then. I noticed his IU hat and mentioned that Monday was a big day for IU. He knew right away what I was talking about even though we have never spoken about basketball or IU at all. I just cant imagine that random Vanderbilt grads would have any idea what “Monday” meant, and really believe that less Kansas fans would pick up the reference than IU fans. IU is home, it’s where Romeo will receive lifelong support. People will follow his career and cheer for him for a lifetime if he comes to IU. I hope he sees that!

    I guess I don’t have any in mind that we expected to win in the days leading up to it, but losing out on Bruce Brown, Theo Pinson, Gary Harris, Kris Wilkes, etc. just has me wary on this one...

    Definitely...it’s not often that these kinds of recruitments have gone our way...Zeller is about it in recent memory
  7. Didn’t he cause a huge storm when he stomped all over the crest in the middle of the court at assembly hall one year? Maybe it was after chad Austin beat us on a last second shot? He didn’t seem too fond of old IU during his playing days...

    IfJuwan comes back I think we’d be ranked. Either way we’ll have a chance to prove ourselves. gotta avoid bad losses next year! think we’ll be at NC State for the ACC challenge anytime soon?

    I’m sure there will be a couple more ebbs and flows to the “feeling” regarding his decision by those on the outside. Given that, and the fact that things legitimately can change has me still nervous about this one...

    I’m from Ohio too! (Columbus) Actually attended one of the high schools Lawrence Funderburke went to (out of the three ) . catching crap from all my friends during the 90s made me love beating OSU as much as beating Purdue...

    I am 37 yrs old and have been an IU fan my whole life. The teams I first started really connecting to and following closely were the Cheaney years. One thing that I have appreciated about Archie Miller as a coach has been the largely positive offseasons! Last year he did great work to keep the incoming class and the returning team together. This year he has set us up for some possibly very positive recruiting news. The offseason is long and we are waiting on Morgan to decide, but it is so nice to be spending all our time waiting for bad news in the off-season. Seemed like my whole childhood was hearing about which of my favorite players was transferring, or which recruit we were missing out on or what coach was being fired. Archie is nothing if not steady.

    MSU is in trouble

    I don’t think he is directly involved in any of those decisions but he has certainly tied his reputation to the school and to Izzo specifically through the comments he has made on twitter and the articles he has chosen to retweet. He has thrown his lot in with Izzo at this point and his public rhetoric is all Spartan pride through each new cycle of reports. I don’t see how you can hear some of these reports and still be as rah rah about MSU as he has publicly been.

    Is that a scholarship if ANYONE transfers, or if a guard transfers?

    I would not begrudge Romeo is choice but it would seem out of his personality type to have “something planned” with other recruits and wait to announce... It would also seem out of Garland’s personality type to not have given even a hint of there being a plan in place... he may go to Vandy, and he may go to Kansas, and in both cases I would be disappointed, but I think if he knew with any amount of certainty where he was going than he would have announced already... hope it’s IU...would be one of the best recruiting classes we have ever had I think...top five or so at least.

    RIP Daryl Thomas

    Just received a notification from the ESPN app about his death. They were definitely slow on the draw but they just put something out.
