Danomatic Posted December 19, 2017 Report Share Posted December 19, 2017 Ok, so there’s a number of words that could be used to describe this team, but I’m going with pride, or the lack thereof... Simply put, this team has no pride, none. This isn’t quite as aggravating as last year’s squad, at least not yet. Last year, we vastly underachieved. We had talent, NBA level talent, but no true leadership. This season we have neither. Our expectations were somewhat reasonable, considering all things. Now, in my opinion, I think a lot of this stems from the lack of Indiana kids on this team. Yes, we have Collin and McRoberts who are native Hoosiers. However, the majority of our players aren’t even really from Big Ten country. Maybe this explains their lack of pride? In order to keep this short, I’ll end by saying that this is the very reason why it’s important to land Indiana kids. We need kids that know what the name on the front of their uniform represents and to take pride in what they’re doing. It seems to me that over the past few years, Crean sold the Indiana prestige to kids from the east coast and the great plains. But they don’t know, nor do they understand what Indiana basketball is truly about and that’s what’s so frustrating. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
