Kinda quiet around here, so I thought I'd try to stir up some discussions.  How about a list of players who wanted to come and play at IU but didn't for whatever reason.

I'll start with :

Oscar Robertson

Bob Gibson

Louie Dampier

 

Who else?

You could go down a lot of rabbit holes on this topic.    What if Jay Edwards returned?    What if Cody and Vic stay one more year?    What if Epstein didn’t kill himself?   

The All "What If" Team.... @5fouls wife #2, #4 and #6

There's been quite a few over the years some already mentioned but Oden/Conly alone would be multiple F4's. Derrick Rose joining Eric Gordon would have been fun.

Larry Bird.

Eric Montross. He and Damon Bailey would have come to IU in the same class. Just think of the 92-93 Hoosiers with Montross on that team. That would have been truly sick, in a good way.

I think Josh Smith and Kyrie Irving are the most interesting because they alone could've extended Davis and Crean's time here.  

How would Irving have extended Crean's time? He had like 6 years after Kyrie finished playing in college.

Yeah....I didn’t realize how long ago he played in college. I was thinking it was later and could’ve prevented that 1st lull after Syracuse.

What was the back story on Dampier?  He wanted IU but we didn’t offer and he went to UK?

I know for a fact that the Bob Gibson thing is true.  I heard him tell the story in a lengthy interview. I remember attaching the link here.
