  1. To quote someone on the trip today...”Visit went very well!” That was said with a huge smile on their face also.

  2. So, for the record, no meatloaf was served. — albeit, I make an amazing meatloaf! We did have cookies and refreshments. Again, for the record, coaches do not eat cookies. What a truly blessed and fantastic week.

  5. I took my boys to the Pacers game tonight. Before the game we saw the IU bus in a parking lot so I asked the driver where the team was staying. He told me and my 9 year old boys immediately started campaigning for me to take them there after the game to try and see a few players. I said we’d see but probably not since it would be late. The game ends at 9:30 and we’re heading home and I think, what the heck, you only live once, so I parked near the hotel and we walked in the lobby and the boys were pumped. We found the conference rooms and I could hear Archie on the other side of the doors talk

  6. Hey Guys!! I just wanted to apologize for some of the things I said on Btown. I got called out by a long time member and I deserved it. I was taking frustration out on the entire board when it was only a handful of posters. Not saying I’ll be over here all the time like before but I won’t be a stranger. Brad F*cking Stevens boys!!! LFG!

  7. I received a text yesterday from a number I did not recognized and asked if I wanted to talk Indiana basketball recruiting? Of course I said yes and expected it to be a member of HSN. I received a call a few minutes later and it was the guy that told me the Big Fish and lots of other info but it has always come through a mutual friend. He said I see that you post a lot of what I say so i am just going to come straight to you. Told us all to relax KB is still good. I posted what I was told about him in the KB thread. He said we have to go back to get full picture. Several months ago

  9. I understand the Boos, but this twitter nonsense is embarrassing for our University. Archie is a human being. It hasn't worked out for him in Bloomington, and thats that. He's a good guy and has a great family, the personal attacks I have seen are outrageous.

  10. Thank you. Ths place is special. It is stunning to think of what, and who, we have lost recently. CC, our founder and tone setter. And trust me, an AMAZING human being. mile, The voice of the people. A man who had a way of connecting with a huge amount of people in an amazingly personal way. Hard to imagine anybody bringing us what he brought us. With that said.....they (with HH and HF) have rebuilt this thing over and over. I am blessed to have joined them several years back. What they have built is a safe place for YOU! A safe place in a cesspool called the intern

  11. Feel free to move but I know that a lot of our members do not make it over to the Animal House which is a shame but I needed to share some things. Over the past 10 years HSN has allowed me to share our journey with Ayden and his health struggles and I wanted to share something amazing because so many of you have supported us in ways that you can't imagine. I found HSN when I needed it most and our founders and others have allowed me to post about Ayden and was a source of therapy that I needed so desperately, and at a time that I did not know where to turn. This place is a place that I do lov

  12. Wanted to apologize for my recent posts and actions especially toward a couple members. It was in appropriate and uncalled for and I’m truly sorry. Going through a bit of a rough patch in life (nothing serious just personal stuff) and I’m not handling it well. So again I do want to apologize to everyone I may have offended.

  13. This guys needs his own topic for how he played last night and how hard he works. Guy makes 500 3s every day, not shoots 500 but makes 500. That is a work ethic. He keeps working like that he will be a joy to watch. Nice work Mr. Leal, keep it up.

  16. 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 confident in that assessment now. https://www.thedailyhoosier.com/iu-basketball-trey-kaufman-navigating-recruiting-obstacles-pondering-contingencies-as-process-winds-down/

  17. I guess I don't really know why people are freaking out. Dolson clearly stated that you wont hear from him again until they hire a coach. He doesn't owe us anything to be honest, so what are people getting on him for? We just fired Archie...a week ago or so? I personally love the silence from him, he's all business. He's doing his homework and not just hiring someone to hire someone. Did I fall for the Stevens rumor, sure, but I think a lot of people did. For all we know he told these players they are welcome to enter the transfer portal until he tells them who the coach is. I don't blame

  19. I massively endorse this hire! Armond Hill was an assistant on Doc Rivers staff with the Celtics when I worked there. Just a tremendous person and a great coach, especially in the area of working with players individually and guiding/mentoring. Love this hire. I'll repeat again, I was extremely discouraged by the Mike Woodson hire and was very vocally against it. But after cooling off and digesting it for a few days after the announcement, I came back to the board and said that what Scott Dolson was doing seemed far more strategic in terms of building a pro-style program that the top pla

  25. 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 in as good of a spot as anyone right now.

  30. I would like to thank the players for their effort through this trying year. You guys had to make a huge sacrifice to play this year and we as fans have no idea how hard this year has been for you. I know you haven't been able to have a normal college experience this year with having to stay in quarantine most of the time and not being able to see your families. We all know you guys wanted to have a better year this year but it just didn't work out that way. I hope you guys know that what you see on twitter and other social media outlets is not the the true representive of the fan b

  31. I don't have the words to express what Mile meant to this board and to myself. I am still in shock and its so odd how you can hurt and mourn someone you never met. Mile was the kindest most sincere person I never met. I just cant imagine being on HSN without him being out there somewhere contributing. Many years ago Mile went to bat for me and allowed me to post personal stuff on this forum. When Ayden was really sick and we were not sure that he was going to make it, Mile allowed me to pour myself out on this forum. He and others allowed me to ask for prayers to give updates to share personal

  36. All the handwringing over this hire is ridiculous. Mike Woodson is an NBA guy who clearly understands the reality of how college basketball recruiting works. It looks like IU might finally be ready to start acting like a big time program.

  39. Why do people even say crap like this? What corroborated evidence do you have that we've been missing on so many coaches? What has been so embarrassing? That we haven't hired a new coach barely a week after firing our other one? It's hilarious watching people freak out because of how tight lipped Dolson is keeping this. Sit back. Take up a hobby. Take up knitting. Anything.

  42. CoachSS and 0708 are very valued members of Hoosier Sports Nation. And have been for years. Both of them have shared information with me via PM's, which I value very very much. And in every case what they have shared with me, has turned out to be spot on. And both have said, that at times. they have held back from posting on the board, for fear of push back. And requested for me not to share. That was a shame. As I know, you all would have appreciated what they have shared with me in private. The fact that either has gotten differing info.... does not make it untrue. Each has their ow

  43. Guys you have got to stop doing this. 1) You can look up and see who CoachSS is and his connections in the Indiana sports community. He doesn't hide it. It is obvious that he has the opportunity to gain information that we can't. He has provided me and others with great information. I appreciate what he brings and that he is a member of our forum. The information he gives is the best from his circle at that particular time. I am a national sales director for a medical company and there have been times where I have been surprised by the decisions that come out of meetings that I have been

  44. Could it be some of the rumors we’ve been hearing are coming out. I’m starting to get really excited. Just heard this morning TJD wants to commit to IU but mom wants him to wait until after all his in homes so he can be 100% sure. It’s sounding as if the boarders may slowly be closing.

  45. Saw it somewhere else, but.. Dawson's mom congratulated Trey's mom on his signing with IU on Facebook. Somebody asked Trey's mom in the comments if her son thought that Dawson would pick Indiana. Trey's mom said, "Not sure. But I have a wonderful feeling he will be a part of the Hoosier family!!!!" ... Dawson's mom liked the comment. Thought I'd post that to get some positive vibes.. Come be a Hoosier, Dawson!!
