First sign of any negativity the coack roaches come out of the walls

I guess. Not to mention Race, Hunter...and Duncomb next year. You think Archie will slow down? Miller and Mohammad are being prioritized right now and if we miss on those?? Hit the transfer market for a year and load up in 2022. 

Am I upset? Sure....but this isn't the end of the world at all. Special kid and player but he's done to this IU fan. We move on.

Talked to Trey on Saturday.  He is thinking through some pretty unique stuff in what has been a frustrating summer. I've said for months that I like where IU is here, and I feel even more confide

The IU staff is really confident. And that’s not a guess. 

There is one central figure in this recruitment that is causing Nick to overreact here, and also causing the 247 guys to misreport that there is some kind of tension between Lander and Kaufman.  IU is

To me it is so much harder being an IU fan today than it use to be.  I use to be proud to be part of the IU fan base but today's fans just ruin it for me.  All the ocnstant negativity especially over one recruit is just mind blowing to me.  I think some people just get off on being negative and looking at everything in a negative light.  I am glad I don't see the world in this light because I would just shoot myself.  Yes I am dissappointed that Trey did not pick Iu but the last 6 months has shown me that the outcome of a recruiting battle is not very important.  Having your company sell out your department that have worked in for 6 years.  Then catching the virus and losing you job puts think in a different perspective.

Fans have always been that way.....the clowns have a platform now

I'm guessing the interviews with Trey. My confidence all week as well

My guess is the “sources” from the IU side were all connected to the team/athletic department and not the kid/family.   Thus, if staff was feeling confident it was probably relayed and “our” insiders felt good.  Works when staff is right. Not so much when wrong.

I don't think I would ever use this as a source because I am sure most coaching staff feels good about a recruitment.

That is why most “insiders” are wrong 😀.  Werent we making fun of the Purdue Rivals insider regarding Kaufman saying he was using Painter?  Guess Painter has a better “feel” than Archie and the boys

Bingo. Bc our insiders thought it was IU up until the last 24 hours. Evidently it never was.

You’ll get some of them right if you’re listening to somebody close to the program, but agree, wouldn’t consider that real inside info.

What irritates some of us is that no one was even tlaking about Archie for a long time.  Everything I saw has been a lot of people being enthusiastic about the upcoming season and thought everything was headed in the rigt direction.  What really upsets people is that since one recruit comes out and goes elsewhere then people come out of the wood work who has been here complaining about Archie and the direction of the program.

That's an easy one.  We have not been good by any stretch of the imagination for a long period of time.  We have had 3 decent years IIRC since Crean was hired.  Last year was finally a potential NCAA tournament year, but even that had us under .500 in conference and finishing in the bottom half.

Every little bad thing that happens leads to a sky is falling type of reaction because to many people, the sky fell years ago and the improvement that has occurred has been slow and ugly.

I get why people are pessimistic.

From my perspective Iu would have more pros than cons than Purdue has when picking a school

Pros for IU-  Basketball history of winning championships, facilities, campus, friends that are already on the team, fan base that loves basketball. Being able to play the stretch 4 since they already have a center of the future.

Cons- I guess the offensive style

Yeah CAM definitely needs to figure out the offense.  It has been painful to watch.

The thing is we can't blame Archie for the last 25 years of mediocrity.  He has been here 3 years and why not let him try to build the program back up before tryng to tear him down.

I see no problem with the offense and the strategy because all I see is a lot of good open shots. The problem is that the players can't hit the open shots.

Did your guy say much about this recruitment the last few days.  I knew you said that the winds were blowing to WL and then a few days later thought it sounded good for IU.

Radio silence the last few days.
