  1. Are you referring to the two seniors leaving or known transfers? Interesting to see if we have any roster turnover which should be coming out over next couple weeks
  2. Paraphrasing Archie’s description of OAD players he wants at IU, “Players that buy into the team. Not just any good player.” KBJ prioritizing draft value over the team does not align with the philosophy of Archie or what IU fans value. I’m happy to move on without him
  3. To think I was close to signing up for Peegs before someone guided me to HSN. Saved me money and a large headache!
  4. Never want to overreact to one game, but 5 points in regional finals for Leal?! Anyone who attended game have insight?
  5. Juwan body language leaves something to be desired
  6. He was offered about two weeks ago.
  7. Apparently put up 40 points in the process 😳. Please get him on campus, Arch. Love to see him be a Hoosier!
  8. I will follow Romeo, pull for him because he pledged to stay home for his one year of college ball. For the record, Gordon is one of the more vocal supporters of IUBB on social media. Big difference between not wanting to become a one and done factory vs. supporting the few one and dones we have.
  9. BREAKING: Refs still at the monitor confirming that yes, in fact, Romeo’s shot did get off in time! Go Hoosiers!
  10. Yes, but the real risk for contact while on a blood thinner is trauma to the head resulting in an intracranial hemorrhage. Also can have bleeding into joints (hemarthrosis) which could be severely debilitating. IU and the great Dr. Tim Garl have handles this situation very well. Sometimes these situations can lead to a turf war when an IU athlete needs outside opinion; I’m glad he got the care he needed at Cleaveland Clinic and support from IU administration Quick google search suggests Bosh also had blood clots. His actually went to his lungs which would definitely impact further pulmonary function.
  11. If the lower leg condition is indeed deep vein thrombosis (DVT) as has been hypothesized, then the medication in question is likely anti-coagulant (ie blood thinner). This is important because it would explain the NON-contact setting of his clearance. Any type of contact could lead to serious bleeding side effect of the medication. Most first time unprovoked DVTs are treated with anti-coagulation for 6-9 months. This would put timeline for return to contact during the summer assuming no setbacks. Really pulling for the best for Jerome and love his energy on the sideline!
  12. Kyle Guy played in the toughest conference in the state. Mr. Browns statistics are impressive but I will be very interested to see how it translates against higher competition on AAU circuit.
  13. A lot has been made out of Archie’s lack of ability identifying offensive threats on the recruiting trail. Did the APR prevent him from getting his guys? Did Glass request him to keep the players previously signed LOI when taking the job? No clue. Lets take a look at two guards Arch identified as high level prospects. McKinley Wright, PG Colorado Freshman: 14.2 ppg, 4.7 rpg, 5.5 apg Sophomore: 13.5 ppg, 4.5 rpg, 5.0 apg Davide Moretti, G Texas Tech Freshman: 3.5 ppg, 0.8 rpg, 1.1 apg Sophomore: 10.9 ppg, 1.8 rpg, 2.5 apg _________________________________________ For comparison, let’s look at IU guards previously in place when Archie took over. Devonte Green 2018 (Soph): 7.6 ppg, 1.9 rpg, 2.5 apg 2019 (Junior): 7.6 ppg, 3.3 rpg, 2.9 apg Josh Newkirk 2018 (Senior): 7.1 ppg, 2.1 rpg, 2.8 apg _________________________________________ Conclusion: Archie can identify talent on the recruiting trail. I will continue to trust him and look forward to bringing in more of his players as he cleans up the roster mess left by Crean.
  14. Interesting, everything I’ve read Lander is very much interested in IU (along with Michigan). But you would abandon prioritizing him as a recruit just because he elects to attend prep school?! I am by by no means an advocate for prep school. In fact I think they can be shady operations. However, I want the best players to stay home and play for IU whether they attend prep school or not!
  15. Great looking stroke, especially from deep! However, his game relies on slow developing cradlesteps to get into his jumper which I worry if it could translate to better competition. Speaking of which, I’ve seen better defensive effort at the HPER
