As far as the quality of the '15 class, in-state, it is pretty much agreed that it's down. Coleman is the only sure fire B10 level player.
Have no fear, IU is doing solid work with some exciting '15 prospects out of the state of Indiana.
Here's Jaquan with his new Twiiter picture.
Happy commitment present/car Jaquan?!?

"It's Indiana. It's Indiana. What I feel is the pinnacle, the absolute pinnacle of all of college basketball".
For whatever reason, Indiana kids just dont have any state pride, even going to the state they are supposed to despise.
Oh well, momentum continues to be at a stand still ever since the Wisconsin and Syracuse losses. #2 and #4 picks in the draft and we get bounced in the sweet 16.
I may not be the brightest bulb and I'm really, really trying, but I have NO idea what this post means.
I will dumb it down so that even you can understand:
Indiana players = no state pride
Indiana recruiting momentum = down the toilet ever since Wisconsin and Syracuse early tournament losses
Crean with #2 and #4 picks in the NBA draft = second round exit in B1G tourney and sweet 16 exit in NCAA tourney.
There you go :)

You do realize you don't have to be the best team to win a game right? You just have to be the best team that night, so your point about having 2 top 5 picks and failing to get past the S16 as somehow an indictment on the program, I have to say you may be what you claim Stuhoo to be.
"God was here before the Marine Corps. So you can give your heart to Jesus, but your ass belongs to the Corps!"
I don't believe so.
I also believe that you are a condescending, passive-aggressive poster who, for the second time today, was trying to get a thinly-veiled anti-IU post across on this board.
I hope that was perfectly clear for you, Mr. Duk Dong.
Ok then, I went ahead and simplified my post above so you can understand it. Youre the one who said you couldnt understand a simple post, though you were trying hard. Im just trying to help you man.
That's still hitting you pretty hard, huh?
In retrospect, it wasn't WHAT you were saying that I couldn't understand.
I couldn't understand WHY you were saying it.
Because she hasn't figured out that games are played on the court rather than on paper? I'm imagining a tourney bracket with four one-seeds in the final four...
It's not like elite athletes can't get loans, athletes that could soon be multi-millionaires. Nice Cardinal red though.
As for the recruitment, it was UofL's loyalty. It's why I thought JaQuan never considered UK. Based on comments he didn't want to be part of a program that believes it can recruit when it feels like, because it's "Kentucky". That's why he picked UofL over IU. Crean seemed to be inconsistent, from hot to cool, then back to being on his trail like none other.
To paraphrase another post I saw; You either want elite in-state talent, or you don't.

Fair enough. I dont think much of Crean as a coach but I do think he is a good recruiter and a good ambassador for the program. Hopefully he will reel in Goodluck and or Exum.
I think having two top 5 picks in the draft will end up giving us some recruiting momentum over the coming years, but I'm not an expert like you are
"Crean with #2 and #4 picks in the NBA draft = second round exit in B1G tourney and sweet 16 exit in NCAA tourney. "
Shouldn't it be:
2nd round exit in BIG tourney and sweet 16 exit in NCAA tourney=#2 and #4 picks in the NBA draft.
That's the order they happened, and actually sounds pretty good for IU.
CTC's reputation as a coach is far from decided. There are aspects of what he does that I love and aspects that i am not as fond of. I've been following IU basketball for the better part of 60 years and I can say the same thing about most of the previous coaches. In a few years his rep at Indiana will really take shape.
As far as recruiting is concerned, I want mature, team-oriented players at IU. I don't know any high school players personally, so I can't comment on anyone's character. I will say that I imagine it is difficult to maintain a level head at that age when so many adults are telling them how good they are and how the future of a major basketball program depends on their decision.
aww. can't downvote..
there is some benefit if downvotes would cause a post to automatically be hidden.
Maybe the desire to deal with the headache waxed and waned?
Not sure it's an either/or. Without the ability for retrospect, I wanted Allen Henderson but not Glenn Robinson. Big Dog didn't fit "My Indiana"
I assume you meant Alan Henderson ;)
No. Allen is a guy we didn't get but who i really wanted!
Nice ride, grandma must be loaded.
yeah. that's it.
Still trying to figure out the logic behind the idea that losing to Wisconsin and Syracuse has anything to do with recruiting momentum and how having 2 IU kids drafted in the top 4 is somehow bad for recruiting.
Hint - I'm not holding my breath waiting for the nonsensical attempt to justify either of those statements.
