    I wonder what those numbers look like if you remove IU and Kansas from the equation. How much did Kansas hold those numbers up by continuing to be Kansas and how much did we drag down by not being IU...

    IU has not given much reason in the past few decades to "fear" them. I believe we are seeing that worm change. Also, in our most recent meeting, it was Kansas who limped back to Lawrence with an L. Romeo will be picking IU. He will be followed by several other high profile kids whose names we have been discussing on this board. I am comfortable with where we are going. I expect to start seeing guys like this get their mouth shut on the court, kind of like what happened in Hawaii the last time Indiana played Kansas.

    "I've decided to play at Indiana University" As long as he says that, he could have a circus for all I care.

    Who? Never heard of 'em.

    "Guess where my first away game was my rookie year? Indiana. When I was introduced, I got a standing ovation. That’s love. I felt at home. I can’t tell you how special it feels when you think about how in only a few years, you can go from nobody knowing how to pronounce your name, to 20,000 people chanting it in unison. And I was on the opposing team. It was like that every time I came back. If I was playing for Orlando, Oklahoma City, it didn’t matter. If I ever went out in Indiana I was embraced by the people. Everyone remembered the years I played in college and talked about them like I was still on the team. Even when I was away, I was tied to Indiana." First off, love Victor. If Tom Crean did nothing else for this program, bringing that guy here would be enough. That whole team just seemed to "get it". Crean, for whatever reason, could never get another group together like that. That right there is the best recruiting pitch for kids coming here. You are not getting that in Nashville, you may get it in Lawrence, but you play here, you always have a home.

    Man he is good. Talent level will obviously increase for his competition but he is going to be a handful. If he comes that is 2 guys that will demand the defense's attention. I hope all of our guards are working on their 3 point shooting, there should be a ton of open looks next year when we swing the ball.

    And not just Romeo, if Romeo comes, he will have got the Top 3 kids out of Indiana, one of the best out of Ohio, and another of the top kids out of Minnesota in Race. Add to that the fact that we are in on TJD, Brooks, and Watford for the following class and you have to like what he is doing on the recruiting front. I think his style is more sustainable than Crean's was as well and I think his demeanor instills more confidence. This could be the ground floor on some really good things to come.

    I think the Langfords are a pretty intelligent and respectful family from what I can tell, with that in mind, I see no way in Hades that they open this thing up to the public and announce for Kansas or Vanderbilt. They know that gym is going to be filled with Indiana fans and I just do not see that family giving all those people the finger in such a public manner. So I am going to be shocked if he picks anywhere but IU if this remains open. Having the fans in attendance and then pulling for one of the other 2 schools would be one of the all time worst decisions one could make in these instances.

    If so he is pretty bad at keeping secrets.

    Why would UK or UL fans show up though? It is going to be an overwhelmingly IU crowd.
  11. Grad Transfers?

    Yeah, I just prefer to move Juwan to the 4. I think asking a 6'7" kid to handle guys that are 3" taller than him on a regular basis wears them down over the year. Also, I think Juwan's skill set makes him better suited to be a stretch 4. I just think you are going to be hard pressed to get another 2G in here for one year if we land Romeo. If you only have one year left you generally are not going to a school who is bringing in a OAD level talent at your same position. In the idea of only having Romeo for a year, I go for the big because I want to win now.
  12. Grad Transfers?

    I would think it would be hard to add another 2 guard who only has one year of eligibility left. With Taylor and Mooney, they are looking to come and contribute. If Langford comes to IU he is going to take 32+ minutes at the 2. Morgan should take the same at the 4. Frankly, if we have a scholarship and are looking to add one player, I want the big guy from Old Dominion (think that was school). Put him and Davis at the 5 and you are not relying on Forrester and Moore to be Davis' back up if/when he is in foul trouble. Green, Phinisee, and Durham are going to be fighting for the PG role and could also spell Langford a few minutes at the SG and we have a bunch of guys that could fill that 3 role or backup to Morgan. If Romeo comes, the 5 is where I think we are lacking.
  13. Romeo Langford

    I hope you all are right. Remaining cautiously optimistic.
  14. Romeo Langford

    I think getting East as a preferred walk on would be a steal as well. Get he and Romeo along with what we already have in this class and Archie gets an A+ from me for his first class.

    After playing with those guys in the All Star games he has decided that Archie and Ed offer a great coaching tandem and that playing with all these guys with the same goal as he is going to lead to problems having enough balls for everyone. His buddy RP, a Senior Morgan, and the IU coaching staff seal the deal for IU.
