  1. This. I think we’re going to be pleasantly surprised by the recruiting class we have coming in sans Romeo. CAM has pretty much brought in what we severely lack this year. He has a true PG coming in that will be able to score but run the offense at the same time. Anderson brings the outside shooting that we severely lack, and Hunter is going to be a STUD imo. Hunter can handle the ball, play in the post, shoot from outside and create for himself all at 6’7”. He’s very athletic and smooth too. Also, from everything I’ve heard, Forrester is a good get too. Very long, tall kid with bounce

  2. Morals and ethics. Do we want our kids doing the 'best thing' or the 'right thing'? All too often they are different things and the line can be blurred between the two. Now, we ask the same thing of Archie. I will not condemn Archie's decision in this matter. In fact, I quite respect it and see it as a 'right thing'. That said, I cannot condemn anyone for thinking he should have done the 'best thing'. I will add that down the road this decision could pay dividends for the program and be a statement to Archie's character and recruiting ability. Edit: re-recruiting CTC's

  3. I agree. Very good post. Archie is here, hopefully, for many years. This one player is not likely to speed up or slow down the process to get us where we want to be. Set the tone of ethical approaches early. He will get his type of guys. But no need to take any perceived shortcuts that other coaches can use against him down the road. Whether it is backstabbing Dayton, or not showing IU is honoring the University's offers......it could be twisted into bad optics. No.need for that so early, if ever.

  4. Exactly. Stars and rankings obviously aren’t irrelevant, they certainly have value. But often today they’re given too much value. This is a really good recruiting class that fits several needs. I think we’re gonna he happy. And then you add in Race Thompson who will be debuting at the same time and it just gets even better

  6. FWIW, I believe Phinnisee is the 127th ranked player per 247 for 2018. I have a difficult time buying that there are 126 better players than him.

  7. I see the recruits he has landed as just the beginning, his starting point in recruiting at IU. Time will tell us what sort of commits he will bring in and given everything CAM has done so far, it will not take much time to answer our questions.

  8. I agree. I’m all in so far on Archie as a basketball coach. Love what I’ve seen so far. My only question is to what level will he recruit? It’s not a criticism, just a question. So far I like his inside/out approach and everything he’s saying/doing there, but at the end of the day to make IU consistently great you’ve got to land the Langford’s, Brooks, TJD’s, etc,. There should be a little honeymoon period here with a new coach where there is some excitement from local recruits and high school coaches. Even Crean experienced that with his run of Zeller, Yogi, Hollowell, Hartman, Lyles, J

  9. The disappointment for me more so than anything has to be the recruiting. Our 2018 class is okay but I truly thought Archie would have a big time commit or two by now. I mean Crean had Watford on board before his first season began who was a consensus top 40 player and he inherited a situation a million times worse than Archie.

  10. I don’t think think anyone is crazy enough to think this is even close to the roster that Crean took over in his first year. With that said, anyone one who doesn’t see that this is a very poorly constructed roster is kidding themselves. We shouldn’t have loss to ISU or IPFW, but we did and it’s pretty obvious (imo) it was due to all of the players not buying in to the new expectation (ISU) and one being a total let down, thinking they could just show up and beat the other team (IPFW). If you remove all of the careless turnovers from the IPFW game, we win. All of the other games we’ve playe
