Offseason 2022


Recommended Posts

I’m really surprised that we haven’t heard anything on McNeil or Dennis visits the last few days. We usually see pics of the being escorted around campus. Let’s just face it, I’m bored ….I’m sitting in on my deck, drinking a “Neon Bear Hug” IPA, throwing a tiny ball to my Dachshund….The weather is Delicious!😆C9A403E4-5387-4F51-BD8A-A2C31FAFED0F.thumb.jpeg.6d2896d86c751978951461b259031490.jpeg

Dennis just posted on twitter that he’s about to announce a top 5…..

Won't complain if we get him, but really not a fan of a transfer "announcing a top 5." That just strikes me as someone who's looking for attention.

He’s not the first I’ve seen; no different than HS announcing their pick. Hell, the KENSUCKY cetnter announced on ESPN Sportscenter he was returning. I don’t particularly like it either but it is what it is.

Eh it also could just be his way of saying “I’ve narrowed it down, stop contacting me” to other schools. I have no idea.. just a thought.

Throw it! Come on! Throw iiiiit! Throw it! Throw….ohboyohboyohboyohboy….*runnnnnnn* 

FWIW, I’m sitting on my covered patio drinking a Yeti tumbler full of vodka/diet tonic while instructing my 10 year old on how to disassemble a concrete form.

Life is good. 🍻

I’m curious if he’s doing this more as to take his time with no open spots at IU right now. Not saying he’s a lock or I’m in the know, just some rumors from people in the know saying he would commit to IU. 
 

Just speculation but he might be taking his time while things play out at IU. Why not if you can get travel, food, and shown a good time for free? 🤷‍♂️

There is no one on the IU boards that I know of who is close to DD's camp so all those rumors should be taken with a large grain of salt. They're based on how the IU people feel about the position they're in. It's great that they feel they've made a great impression and are confident that he'll choose IU but even with that it's far from certain. I also don't think they'd play that game of delaying a commitment until a spot opens.

JG returning!

Truly never thought he was leaving. His best chance to develop is at Indiana, regardless of the opportunity to play more out east. 

There are elements of his game few possess. His skill level and situational awareness need to improve, but that is ok! He will grow and he will blossom under our staff.

So with JG announcing he’s coming back, is there anybody besides TJD who hasn’t indicated he’s coming back?

I want to say TJD, Duncomb, Kopp? 
 

Technically I think X, Leal, and Bates didn’t make formal announcements but have given enough indication they aren’t leaving.

If X wasn’t leaving after his impersonation of Ricky Bobby through downtown Bloomington, I find it highly unlikely he would. 
 

And Leal ain’t leaving of his own accord, nor should he. He’s playing D1 ball in his hometown, is a great student and who knows…maybe he turns into the sniper we’ve all been wanting.

The nice thing about JG, he’s got three years left.  He can do a lot of developing.   The Hoosier Hysterics guys say he’s working full time on his perimeter skills.  Lot of meat on the bone with his skill set development.   He plays really hard and he has a knack for making plays.

Wasn’t sure where to post this but couldn’t help but noticing this in the background of one of the photos from the AAU games. Nice to see our players and staff getting along so well!

I don't mind recruits doing it while they're still in high school, because choosing a college is a watershed moment for a lot of people. A transfer doing it just seems...weird. Kind of like a middle finger to the program they're leaving behind.

back to Negative Nancy here.  i am very happy JG is returning, but it makes me that much more skeptical that TJD would come back.  really hard to believe that the players and staff think there would be enough minutes to keep JG, TJD, Malik, and Race happy.  maybe JG can prove us wrong and play the 3.

That’s X next to him. 
 

Not sure if he’s there at the Woody’s request or volunteered to step away from the Little 5 madness.

 

Very good point. Hopefully he did on his own but stepping away from the potential of trouble this weekend isn't the worse thing. School is done in 2 weeks. Campus will empty....and you can hide out and have fun in Bloomington all summer long.
