  1. 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!

  3. 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.

  4. 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

  5. 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.

  8. 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/

  9. 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

  10. 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

  11. 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

  12. 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

  14. 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.

  17. 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.

  20. How in the world can people think this. He has a stellar reputation across the NBA. The toughest league in the world. How does a guy revered at the highest level, with a proven track record ever be considered the drunk fat chick. Mike Woodson is an elite level coach that loves IU as much, if not more, than we do. And we are gonna bash him like this? I dont get some of you.

  21. He went to IU, played hard, and decided he didn’t want to stay through a coaching change. Anyone who wishes him anything other than good luck needs to look in the mirror a bit IMO.

  22. Hi all...I can't believe it has taken me this long to find you guys. I saw many familiar names here from back in the original Scout Hoosier Nation days (with John Decker). I managed the scholarship grid and etc on that forum and through some of the following reiterations until the technology no longer supported it. Now on this forum, with the help of HoosierFaithful, I think I can bring back some of that information that I've collected over the years. I'm going to try reserve a number of posting spots to accommodate the tables of information from over the years, including a "yearbook" with

  23. Very good interview. Dane is smart, insightful, and is great with the English language. Few things I recall: IU hasn’t gotten it right the past 20 years because they’ve tried to re-brand. It hasn’t worked. Woody is going to reconnect us with our brand. Woody and Matta called him last week. Great call. Goals lined up. Fife had never been offered a job at IU before. Izzo was classy in letting him go. He totally understood that Dane is an IU guy. Izzo said maybe you can take over when Woody leaves. Fife said that is not necessarily why he took the job (obviously would

  24. I’m new at posting here, but I thought I’d throw in my 2 cents, not for the sake of any argument, but just for another perspective. Before this season, I was mainly on the side of “give Archie more time.” I thought he needed 4 years, and I thought calls to fire him before that were premature. Other very successful coaches have needed 3-4 years to turn things around. And I thought some of the things I saw posted in the past couple years, particularly on one other site, really put IU and the fanbase in a poor light. This season, though, Archie lost me. I started losing hope after t

  25. Just got a text saying that barring a big ten tournament championship Archie is done. I guess we won’t have to wait long if it’s true.. Edit- also stated it will be a mutual decision so the buyout may not be as big of an issue as we thought. 🤷🏼‍♂️

  27. There is so much wrong with this I don't know where to start. Most of Crean's players LOVE the guy. They still stay in touch, often. The AAU coaches hating Crean is so overblown, and frankly not at all accurate. Patterson did himself dirty, fact. Sheehey did not despise him, fact. Will and I hung out with some of the same people and we interacted often. Fischer didn't fit with the roster so he went elsewhere, and Vonleh only looked out for himself, not sure what Crean could have done there. Just because you have something against Crean doesn't mean you have to bring up internet rumors to

  31. That's why i sometimes push back on some of the more negative/borderline nasty comments. Not that there's a ton on this board, but they are there. Call me soft, call me whatever, but these are real people. Yes Archie gets paid a lot of money, but he's still seems like a good dude and a husband and a father. It's not like he isn't giving his all. I'm sure many others here have too, but I've been in that spot where you lose your job for whatever reason and have that long drive home. I lost my job once after 7 years in a downsizing. I was the sole income in our family, we had 3 kids u

  33. Figured we should probably all give HF a big thank you for getting us back up and running. I am sure no one planned for the site to go down at the worst possible time, but my understanding is @HoosierFaithful did the bulk of the work to get us back together again. THANK YOU! On a related note, @BGleas we know you're made that Brad is coming home but you didn't ha e to crash the site. He's still your coach.

  34. Figured with it being Senior Day, Al deserved a thread. I don't think his four years were what any of us wanted, but I can honestly say I've enjoyed getting to watch Al Durham the past four years. He played hard and with great emotion on a team that often lacked it. He may be a flawed player, but the kid got better. He went from a guy who was a poor shooter coming in to a guy who has turned into a very reliable shooter as an upper class men. It's not his fault for the teams he played on or the roles he had to attempt to fill; I wish every kid we recruiter was the type of kid Al app

  36. As much as I know this needs to happen and I agree that it's time and needs to happen, I still hate it. I really like Archie. At least what I know publicly, he seems like a good guy and I really thought we had found our guy. It's a real shame it hasn't worked out, and on the personal side I'm sad for Archie and his family, as well as the IU fan base.

  37. Moral victories don’t mean anything but this team is a couple of ball bounces and some poor end-of-game execution away from being a top 15 team. So maddening because they look close at times to breaking through.

  38. Hunter, in a zoom meeting, said today that he finally isn’t having any issues out of his leg anymore. Says he’s way behind on defense but is gaining confidence quickly. Saw this on Twitter but not sure from who. Goes with what I’ve been wondering for some time. Basically he’s just now getting healthy for the first time since his injury.

  39. I just don't get the folks always down on Al. Today he was 5 for 10. 11 points. Tied for team lead with 8 rebounds! 4 assists 1 turnover. So, 11pts, 8 rebs, 4 assts, 1 turnover. And all I hear is bench him?

  40. For several reasons I disagree with you. But to keep this short and sweet, I would hate it for a kid who COMMITTED to IU and RECOMMITTED to a new coaching staff have his dreams killed because a kid WHO CHOSE TO GO ELSEWHERE decided he might have made a bad decision

  41. Musselman has been a college coach for 5 full complete seasons (not counting last year) and has made the tournament 4 times, only missing it his first year at Nevada. In those four appearances he's been to the Sweet Sixteen twice and now an Elite 8. He's also had single digit loss seasons in four of those five years, won his conference three times and finished 2nd another time. He led Nevada to three NCAA Tournament appearances in four years when they hadn't been there in a decade. Nevada had three straight single digit loss seasons his last three years, then Musselman leaves and A

  43. I don't care what anyone says or wants to call me, the refs absolutely cost IU that game. Its absolutely insane that the free throws were 20-8 in a game that almost all of our points came in the paint. When we got the lead down the stretch the fouls were 10-4 in the second half. Even a remotely fair whistle we win by 8-10 in regulation.

  44. In memory of Mile / Ken and the civility he helped bring we are renaming our Rules forum "Milehiiu's Board Rules" -- (the name change will show up soon) From back in his mod days, when he played a major role in setting up the rules for the Board, and continuously after, the relentless positivity and civility that he brought very much helped shape this place to one where civility and just good vibes have been the backbone of our spirit here.

  45. It is the current perspective of where things stand with Archie at IU. I could write a fan boy piece about patience, and trusting the process midway through his fourth season, but that's not where we are -- at all. Frankly that would be silly at this point. There is no negative perspective -- this is just where we are in the fourth year of a coaching tenure at a prominent high major college basketball program. The article was full of facts to back up why we are where we are. Oh, and if you are genuinely waiting for the positive article, here it was after the 2019-20 season.

  46. When we go to the Dr we never know exactly what to expect. The past 2 weeks we have had multiple appointments. Because many of you care and do reach out to me I just want you all to know what is going on. So far all of the visits have been good for the most part. His White count and other levels from the panel were stable. Having a bone marrow failure diagnosis is very scary for us but we watch his numbers very closely and the Drs are very pleased. In March his GI doctor put him on a medicine to help him because his pancreas does not create enough enzymes to break down food and this medici
