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

There was this indonesian hooker that I used to hire and she told me something that works well for this occasion. "It was real, it was fun but it hasn't been real fun. See you later Big Banana." (That was my nickname amongst the ladies.)

Any chance she is on the north side of Indy?

Oh I don't disagree with you a bit. Was just trying to paint a timeline. If I'm wrong please someone come along and correct me. He knew Purdue 2 weeks ago. Accepted Facetime from coaches at IU yesterday or Wednesday. His video was released early....he blamed others on social media this morning? Is this correct?

I'm not sure about the IU coaches but the rest of it is correct.

She's a traveler so you never know!! I originally met her on the coast of Morocco when I woke up naked on a beach. Moroccan hasish will do that to you...turned out I had been passed out for 2 days after the smoking 20 grams of hash and doing a bunch of nightshade distillate...and about a dozen amyl nitrate whippets...and some crazy northeast african white lighting made from camel dung. Well, I don't need to go may further, it's the same old story that everyone has so back to Trey dissing us!

The point being...time to find your happy place and not worry about a four star recruit not coming to IU. IU is doing just fine and is doing better each year. Sit back and enjoy your family, plan your dreams...or think about your times with hot indonesian hookers.  It's all going to be ok. Have faith.😁

Well if the worst thing to happen to you this year is that Trey chose Purdue then you are darn fortunate.

I don't think that anybody feels that the sky is falling. I do think that there is frustration among many Indiana fans.

Frustration in this years class. Frustration in last year's cancelation. Frustration in Archie's first three years and the last 25 years in general. Frustration in the perceived commitment to mediocrity from the administration.

Frustration in that many felt that Indiana really needed a big time hire three years ago to give the program the shot in the arm it needed and that the administration just couldn't or wouldn't get it done. 

There are better days ahead I'm sure.

Damn, my vet told me today my black lab has cancer, and TK committed to PUke.  Can someone swing by and kick me in the balls before I go to bed so my day is complete.....🤬

If you’re a true dog lover this is harder than most people imagine. Had to take a couple days off work when my 13 year old pup was put down a year ago. My condolences, buddy.

True.  I’m so lame I googled mr basketball in Indiana.  Including the big dog, PU has got 2 mr basketballs Robinson and swanigan since 1991.   iU 9 in the same period.  This is a huge get for PU.  Also interesting to see dry spells with Davis and Crean. 
 

it will work out....watch hunter and Geronimo.

But Archie does have to start beating Purdue, and prove that he can contend for a B10 title. He's got at least 2 years in my eyes, possibly longer because of the pandemic. The slow incremental improvements only play for so long. He's got pretty much all of "his" players now...time for some results.

As for Trey Kaufman, good luck kid...but I hope we make you regret this decision every time we play you...

This is year 4. Why does archie get two more? He needs to finish top four now period

Well accordomg to most experts we got the top coaching candidate that year.   3 years ago if you were the AD who would you have hired instead.  My top choice was Gregg Marshall and now thank god they did not hire him.  Part of the problem with this fan base is the unrealistic expectations they have on who we can hire.  We are not goign to get big time coaches to elave their  current jobs to come to IU.  If you are not getting coaches like Coach K, Bennett, Pitino, Self, Wright and the other top coaches then who are you getting.  For the most part you are going to hire an up and coming coach from a mid major who has some good experience.

As for expectations for this class how do you know how it is going to turn out since we won't know the class until next June.

I'd think anyone would give him a pass on this year. 

No one knows if we're even going to have a complete season...

We didn't last year, and IU by all accounts at least had a seed in the NCAA tournament

I think he was saying our administration will view it that way. And I agree, he needs to start overachieving if he wants the fans to back off. Find a way to finish top 4 this season. I don't want to see us become a program that accepts 7th place finishes and uses the strength of the Big Ten as an excuse.

He should get a total of 5 years to prove he is the right guy and for that matter any coach should get that ammount of time.  if after year 5 we are still in the smae place then that would be the time to talk about his coaching future.  Also you think tlaking ao but your coaches future after only two years helps with recruiting.  Other coaches will pounce on any kind of negativity from schools so they can use it to their advantage in recruiting.

I think it is a fair expectation for a program like IU to win ball games.  I think we will.  I think archies the man.  But he needs to address the offense.

Why were we not having these same discussion 72 hours ago sinc everyone thinks Archie is a huge problem.  I tell you why it is because to many people overreact to one recruit choosing another school.  I noticed a lot of guys on here today that have not been on here in a long time.  For some reason they come today and start puncing on any negative info that comes.  it is like they strive on being the debbie downer and try to pull everyone else down to their level.

Who says they don't want IU to win games and I am sure the coaching staff is doing the best to put us in the best possible situation to win.  Some wants instant gratification instead of being patient and enjoying the journey.  Well if fan bases got to choose when to fire coaches then the country would have lost out on seeing some very great coaches achieve great things.

I'm almost done. 5 years in 15 years Painter has his team playing in 2nd weekend of NCAA tourney.  5 times. I don't know. As I've said many times on here. Painter seems like a good guy. Honest it appears besides his best attempts to file for divorce in another Indiana county to hide things...

This one just doesn't make sense. Maybe a small town kid wanted a smaller stage. I'm still interested in the timeline/blame game he or others around him played the last 24. To me it's a weak look. 

Oh well. Time to move along for me.
