Keeping with their "get older stay older" tradition, Wisconsin picks up 5th year senior 7'1 Chris Vogt from Cincinnati (2 years there and 2 years at Northern Kentucky before that).

 

Didn't there coach say he hated the portal and wouldn't be taking any kids from it?

I doubt many rivals are looking forward to battling this dude once Coach Woodson get his hands on him. Just wreaks of bada$$.  

Oh lord help us. @dbmhoosier is now our voice of reason.

Crean has lost his whole team. He won't be there much longer.

Honestly that is a shame. I don’t wish ill on him. He is a nice guy from what I could tell. Has a good eye for talent. Wonder why he is struggling so much down there. I honestly thought kids liked playing for him.

He is an ahole.  Fake.  Most AAU and assistants know his BS.  Puts on a good show when people are around however when they aren’t on or in public ahole comes out

Do you know him? From many on this board he seemed to be a great guy. He took IU all the way back  from shit to #1 in several years. Not trying to argue but he did a lot in My mind for IU. I also thought his time ran out!!! Maybe there are things we don't know about at his present job that we do

He never gave IU a bad thought ( at least in public) after his dismissal. Just would like your thought process.

Honestly, I don't care about the struggles of Coach Crean.  Sorry, but he's just another coach who's well paid and understands the perils of the profession.  He will be just fine, I'm guessing.

Ask some AAU coaches.  I know some that liked him and when kids didnt go his way...he would be a jerk to them.  Why do you think He threatened Peegs and others in the media about stories they wrote about him.  He has trouble finding assistants when he needs a vacancy because well...assistants talk.  Look up what he said to Donovan Mitchell after he committed to Louisville and some Chicago kids committed elsewhere.  Crean puts on a good act in the media and public.  His bullshit runs thin in the long run with coaches and players.

Yeah Crean has never handled players well when they committed to other schools. I know of another player he had a colorful phone call with after they chose another school.

Is that really unique to Crean, though?There have been rumors floating around for a while about the phone call Painter had with Collin Hartman after he committed to IU.

I see it because I have a Twitter handle I follow who is pretty much in the know of how Crean acts....loves showing his failures.  If Crean was never repeated again, I would be fine with it.  I am enjoying his failures though.  About time his BS got called out.

Understood and back to the regularly scheduled programming...

What are we missing about the current roster? Hard talks still being had?

this is very interesting isn't it?  aside from how confused that has me, i get excited to see a 7 footer, but with how the game is played these days, maybe not?  is this a Jeremiah April or Bawa Maniru?

Does someone have to leave to make room for this 7 footer or can someone redshirt for a year? 

Redshirts still count against scholarship numbers...

There it is. That was my gut feeling for a long time.

Yep...how long had we been having discussions with guys in the portal or the Wesleyan kid with no scholarships available. Too much smoke. It was a crowded wing situation as it was...I just feel bad we never got to see the real Jerome Hunter...kid had a lot of potential.

Is this guy still an option??

I like him over Durr...and that would allow us to redshirt Duncomb if he would like. Isn't he young for his class?
