Massive topic on why the B1G sucks, why defense is overrated, why you should give Crean more credit, and some potential red flags with Archie.
Maedhros replied to ADegenerate's topic in General Basketball DiscussionWish I could like this post multiple times. Archie's focus on defense feels like a high floor/low ceiling approach out of step with the best teams in today's college basketball. Teams like Villanova and even Purdue showed the value of having shooters everywhere, while Archie is working hard to implement a pack line defense designed to encourage shots from the perimeter. It's early and we don't yet know what his Indiana teams will eventually look like or what adjustments Archie will make, but I have concerns. His recruiting priorities so far seem to reflect his desire for length and defense over playmaking ability on offense. Landing Romeo was a coup, but outside DJ Carton we've been awfully late to the party on guards in the 2019 class.
