  1. It was like that with Davis, too. So pretty much since Knight missing on targets has been bad.
  2. That was an even weaker punishment than I expected and I expected it to be weak. It appears game 2 of their season is against Texas, so not surprising I suppose. The most difficult part of their season is the pre-conference, after all.
  3. They also said, "I look inside myself and see my heart is black." You may be wondering what this has to do with your post or the topic in general. The answer is nothing.
  4. That's something you don't see every day. He must be trying to break the record for most years as a college basketball player. It might be hard to break the mark Jalen Coleman-Lands has going for him. At worst he'll match Jess Settles and Evan Eschmeyer with 6 years in school.
  5. It doesn't appear that IU wants to be "in it" at this time. They haven't even offered him and moving him to California probably makes it less likely that happens.
  6. Yes. On top of that, I believe they don't even produce it themselves, they just use the schools' student productions. It's basically a money grab where they can charge fans $10/month for something that costs them very little.
  7. I agree but at least it's only 1 game. It sucks that it's even that but it could be worse.
  8. The problem for me is that in the road games they got destroyed and we're never in either game. 6 points in one of them and shut out in the other. In the 3rd game at home, they found a way to lose. These are familiar things to IU fans. I agree that it's not surprising the record is 2-3 but how those games actually played out is the disappointing part. Let's not forget that they also barely beat WKU. This just seems closer to a typical IU football team than than the improved team fans hoping for.
  9. Yes, I imagine it does have that potential. That's not a good enough reason to keep things the way they are, though. Exploitive manipulation of what is or isn't an employee shouldn't be tolerated just to keep other sports. I suspect that other men's sports are more at risk than women's sports due to football and Title IX.
  10. I don't think that NBA rule is going to change anytime soon. There was some thought that it would but it now appears that won't happen. If the top NIL contracts remain around the same or increase, that will be good incentive for the top players to go to college rather than overseas, G-League, or the other options which are popping up.
  11. I would also mention that a lot of the recruiting info that you and the others pass on from the IU side of things is mostly the feelings on the IU side of things. Like if they feel confident or not. This is good information to be passed but it is hardly definitive and is prone to error. To blame a poster for saying that their source feels confident that they'll land a recruit which they eventually miss on is ridiculous. Even the best sources at IU won't have 100% of the information on the recruit so they could have very good reason to feel confident yet be wrong in the end.
  12. I find "this is the way it was for me so it shouldn't change" arguments very unconvincing. Just because you and your son didn't get paid to play doesn't make it right nor does it mean it shouldn't change. Congratulations to the two of you on successful college playing careers.
  13. I get what you're saying but it can be mutual even if they didn't offer. Mutual means that neither side wanted it. Not mutual would mean that one side wanted it but was rejected by the other. Of course, we have only his word that he would've turned down an offer from them while definitely knowing they didn't offer. Only he knows if he's telling the truth or if it's an after the fact rejection like a child saying, "Fine! I didn't want to play with you anyways!"
  14. Right. I don't think they've even offered Hooks.
  15. I'm not feeling even that optimistic about this game.
  16. https://www.on3.com/news/player-analysis-noah-clowney-four-star-who-remains-uncommitted/
  17. Cocoa Pebbles are better.
  18. Matt Carlino. He was all over the place. I see he played at BYU (3 seasons) and Marquette (1 season) but he had committed to IU before decommitting. I think he committed to UCLA and, I think, even enrolled there before transferring. From what I remember he was all over the place in HS, too. He was in AZ when he committed to IU and then moved to Bloomington. I think he might have been at multiple HS in AZ. He was a double digit scorer each year in college, which isn't bad, but seemed like a headcase. https://www.sports-reference.com/cbb/players/matt-carlino-1.html
  19. I just saw on BTB that he committed to Northeastern. I'm guessing his recruitment ended after Woodson was hired.
  20. I think that 15 player limit (I also saw 16 somewhere but I'm not sure how credible that is) is for a game roster. So I believe a team could have as many walk-ons as they want but for each game have to submit a roster of who is eligible to play which is capped at 15. I'm pretty sure IU has been over 15 total players on their roster many times.
  21. I agree with both of you. It's understandable for IU to be picked where they are and for the media to not have high expectations them. There are also many reasons for optimism from the fan base heading into the season. Time will show which is correct but I certainly hope it's the optimistic view and I really, really hope they're not both wrong
  22. I imagine from my own personal experience that was successful. While in HS, I visited relatives in Arizona around Thanksgiving. I fell in love with the winter weather at that time since I can't stand cold and snow. Indiana isn't as bad as other places as far as those are concerned but it's still colder and gets more snow than I want to have to deal with. After that visit my goal was to move to AZ. I've been there for 13 years now. So I imagine FL weather in the winter can only help recruiting so having visits during that time is a smart move.
  23. I agree that it's a weaker schedule at the top than most years but the weaker teams also aren't quite as weak as the bottom teams recently. I mean, it seems like the last few seasons there were a handful of games each year with teams ranked 300+. Overall, a weaker non-conference schedule. I think it's a good thing. Recently the selection committee has cared more about win totals than schedule strength and the conference schedule will get IU to a respectable SOS, good enough that as long as they have a good record with no bad losses they should get in the NCAAT. I think this non-conference schedule is weak enough that IU should have a very good record entering the B1G season. It will also allow the team to mesh while working out the kinks in a new system and Woodson to get some college coaching experience while also no sacrificing much needed wins (hopefully). Of course, the flip side is that a non-conference loss to any of the teams except Syracuse and St John's will likely end up as a bad loss so they really need to win all of those.
  24. Somewhere in between but closer to being swept under the rug than getting fired. Several game suspension is my guess. Of course, their non-conference schedule is tougher than their conference schedule so an early season suspension could hurt them more than it typically does for P5 schools and could ultimately affect their NCAA seed.
