  1. You guys worry too much. It's still early. Most commitments don't happen until later in the summer/early fall. Have faith and let it play out.
  2. I really liked Damezi. I always hoped he would hit his stride. No doubt he is better than he showed and I hope he has a chance to prove that at his new destination.
  3. Please be the next Damon Bailey....Fingers crossed..
  4. I really don't understand why UIC let him go. McClain had them in the conference championship game this year and it seemed like things were headed in the right direction.
  5. Yes, we are finally getting Luke Brown, the next Damon Bailey!!
  6. Don't forget when they defeated the fighting John Caliparis of Memphis in 2008
  7. Anybody else find it odd that Cooper Bybee and Nate Childress both got minutes over Damezi tonight? Something is going on when he isn't even able to earn mop up duty.
  8. He will probably put up 20 and 10 tomorrow night. That's just the type of luck I expect when our beloved Hoosiers play in this tournament.
  9. Billy Gillespie Texas A&M to Kentucky His weakness for fire water aided in his demise, but I bet he wishes he would have stayed.
  10. A few I recognized Landon Turner George Leach Kyle Taber Matt Roth Derek Elston Tijan Jobe
  11. John Beilein's first 4 years at Michigan were as follows Year 1 - 10-22 Year 2 - 21-14 Year 3 - 15-17 Year 4- 21-14 Our fanbase would have never allowed him to reach his full potential here. Michigan was patient and it paid off. I hope Archie can get the same treatment.
  12. It applies to any kid whether they leave after their freshman year or their junior year. Nearly every kid at that level has a dream of playing in the NBA. If they can acquire that dream, how can you blame them? You want the best of the best in your program. Guys who want to be better and sometimes that means they are going to play their way into the NBA early. That doesn't mean these guys don't want to do something for the program, it just means they are taking advantage of the opportunities available to them. I'd take a Romeo Langford every single year if he wanted to come to IU, it would be foolish to say otherwise. Look at Charles Bassey down at WKU. He was projected to be a first round draft pick but chose to return to school for his sophomore year so he could do something for the program and make the fans happy. Two weeks ago he goes down with a knee injury and is out the rest of the year. Do you think he regrets not taking advantage of the opportunity? Of course he does. There are no guarantees in life, especially when it comes to your health, so take advantage when you can.
  13. Exactly! The kid has been working his tail off his whole life to get to the NBA. Countless hours in the gym, countless hours in the weight room, miles and miles of travel. How can you blame him for leaving to be a lottery pick? Had he sustained these injuries while in college, he probably would not even be drafted.
