  1. I think he’s the guy that smacked Rob in the face about 2-3 seconds after the whistle.
  2. 3 references to her podcast in the article. It sounds like she is just trying to get attention for her podcast.
  3. It's also interesting to see who is coming to the defense of the hedge funds.
  4. The irony is that the hedge funds said Reddit is manipulating the market so they shut down buying which is manipulating the market, just in the favor of the hedge funds. You can still sell, but no one can buy which will cause the price to plummet.
  5. Here's a good video that breaks down what's going on. Basically, retail investors are getting in on market manipulation and Wall St. isn't happy about it.
  6. I'll go on record as being an ardent Archie supporter as of 6:59 PM yesterday. I couldn't even finish the game last night. I really wanted him to succeed, but apathy has now set in. Whether it's the gameplans, shooting, readiness to play....we keep seeing the same issues over and over these past 3.5 years. These systemic issues fall to the head coach. I have now accepted that he is not going to be able to get the job done and IU will be looking for a new coach after next season. With that said, it's quite liberating knowing the next 15 months will basically be a run-out-the-clock scenario. Finally, I don't think the new coach has to an "Indiana Guy". Just ask Michigan football how that's worked out. I would also like to point out that I'm 36, born in 1984. My earliest memories of IU basketball are the Cheney/Henderson teams. When looking at the big picture, it's disheartening that I can count on one hand the number of really good teams IU has had since I've been a fan. I guess now I know what it's like to be a Bears fan (I root for a different team in the NFC North that would be blasphemous to say aloud)!
  7. I had that same thought on that last possession. They're forcing him to his right and he looks helpless. I guess if he wants to go to the G League of overseas, but I don't see him being drafted.
  8. I noticed a lot of mishandling during the Illinois game, not just TJD. Nike sponsors the Illini and I wonder if the Nike ball isn’t as tacky as Indiana’s adidas ball.
  9. I know it is verboten to compliment other teams, but Penn State may not be a “bad” team (just like Northwestern). They will probably finish in the bottom 2-3 in the B1G, but that doesn’t mean they are a garbage team that should be blown out every game. They beat Virginia Tech by 20 (who beat Villanova and Clemson [who beat FSU]), lost to Michigan by 4, and lost to Seton Hall by 6 (who is ranked 37 in KenPom). They may just be one of those teams that are “close” to putting it together. PSU pushed the ball and had a lot of 2nd half shots go down. The bottom line is IU fought off multiple runs by PSU and pulled out the victory. I look forward to rewatching this one knowing the final result. Also, I think the lack of fans is a huge factor this year. These are basically recorded scrimmages. Just look at the NFL. I can’t find the stats up to this week, but back in November, away teams had a winning record.
  10. If there's no such thing as a moral victory, there's no such thing as a moral defeat. A dub is a dub.
  11. I supported the Archie hire because he prioritized defense and I liked his Dayton teams. I also liked the inside out recruiting effort. I was tired of every elite Indiana HS player not even considering IU. However, this is a results driven business and he’s running out of time. The team has improved each year, but I don’t think it will be enough to satiate the fan base and boosters. I don’t know if he will have enough time to “get old and stay old”. The problem is the elite players only stay 1-2 years and 3 if you’re lucky. That strategy works at smaller schools because it’s assumed most players will be there 3-4 years and you can catch lightning in a bottle every few years. I’m 36 with an MBA and I do data analytics for a healthcare firm in South Bend.
  12. Why is that trolling? NW isn’t a good team either and IU lost.
  13. Umm....reasonable opinions aren’t allowed here. Fire Archie!
  14. I feel exactly the same. I understand NW used to be considered an easy win every year but they just came off a win over Sparty and looked good again tonight. They had a “bum” score 17 2nd half points by turning into Kobe. I think the comments should have been praise for Coach Collins finding that kid at W&M. Same with Kopp. I hate how every game, every thread devolves into how Archie should be fired. 4 years ago we wanted a defensive minded coach who can recruit the state. Check and check. he lost to NW so let’s run his ass out of town. That will definitely draw Stevens or Donovan to Bloomington. I for one think this years team is better than last year which was better than the year before. I find this team fun to watch because I can tell they LEO and TJD is a real leader. I still think the future is bright and don’t want to start back over just because results are not coming as fast as we like. This year has turned everything upside down and I made the decision to take a step back and just enjoy the fact I get to watch IU play when in an instant the program could come to a screeching halt.
