Re: New assistant coach: Chris Duhon

Really like the hire. Assistant coach with name recognition, and NCAA Championship/NBA pedigree, which will help out on the recruiting trail. And, I'm also guessing he'll be able to teach our guards a thing or two about the position.

Re: Is this the year?

ADunk - you're a fine poster and you get Bird ball. I don't want/expect Phil Fayne to even dream about expanding his range. Once he learns how to make a 15' free toss, then we all can begin the thought of him expanding to outside of the paint. Not his game imo. Plant yourself about 6' away and cont...

Re: Never too early... 18-19 Non-conf schedule

Donors won't give up their view in favor of students. Also, the students have great seats for Football. I was in school when the student section was moved behind the opposing team, talk about an atmosphere. That was fun. What donors? Look at actual ISU athletic donations and the conclusion is easil...

Re: 2019 - Chris Payton, 6-7/205, SF, Bloomington, IL

Do the numbers matter at this point? I believe there is something other than what the kid can do for the program going on. Surely someone knows something? I don't know if the rankings matter per say, as I think big schools have already found him (hence, imo, why he decomitted). But, generally speak...

Re: Eight-Man Rotation?

If Abdou is top 50 material, he better be starting from day 1. Of course, the last can’t miss recruit was Clarance, and he couldn’t get by Hein. On the bolded part above, just because a kid is a top 50 recruit doesn't mean they need to start. Just in a brief look at last years top 50 recruits the f...

Re: ACC proposing 72 team field

SOunds like a way to get 4 extra 8th place P6 teams. If it means at least 2 extra mid majors I'm all for it. I agree that this just kind of sounds like a way to get more crappy P6 teams in the tourney. I'd rather have rules for getting an at large thnlan an expansion of any kind. As to the others, ...

Re: Muller Math

Don’t take this the wrong way, but if he plays more than 10mpg we aren’t as good as we thought. I'm not going try and start a Matt Hein fight, but in my opinion you are wrong. Hein can average 11-12 minutes a game and we'll still be good, 10-12 minutes isn't earth shattering, and Muller really like...

Re: Muller Math

Hein’s minutes will evaporate. He’ll graduate, and decide to move on with his life. I think he’s played his last year on scholarship at ISU. The 3-1 scholarship/pay you own way arrangement was a helluva deal for a handcuff with very little basketball talent. Not to mention, he was handcuffed to a h...

Re: Muller's Summer Press Conference

On Elijah - "Whatever he chooses, he needs to get better this summer". Hmmm He said that about every player. It's every player's job to get better over the summer no matter if they are on campus or playing on a national team. Listening to it I believe Muller said that "whatever he chooses, its on h...

Re: Loyola Ramblers

I think ISU will have more overall talent, but Loyola will have a better team to start the year. If ISU comes together and plays like a team, like they mostly did to end last year, I'm not sure there will be a lot of teams in the Valley that could stop them.

Re: Sports Betting and College Athletics

I think it is important to start a discussion about how the NCAA and schools are going to handle the new Supreme Court ban-lifting of sports betting across the country. While I don't think the pro ranks will be affected much, this might become the absolute wild west when it comes to college athleti...

Re: Yarbrough

I just remember Hawkins getting the boot last year from Muller after repeat offenses. Dan seems to be the kind of guy who would have drawn a line in the sand after Yarbrough was arrested for theft of, ironically, a cell phone. I’m not saying this arrrest will amount to anything but I don’t think Da...

I think you have to suspend him for the first couple of games to start the year at this point.

Good lord, it sounds like his prep coach is making all the decisions for the kid.

Re: Boyd commits!

Don’t know. Don’t care. That’s a Dan and player issue. Why some fans obsess about it is unclear. Holy shit we agree. If on scholarship wouldn't it count against our 13? If there is any relevance, that's where it lies. Yes, if he is on scholarship he would count against our 13 total. I think with a ...

I noticed that too. Hopefully just a typo. Or since he was a NQ maybe he has to "earn" his next year of eligibility. Think like Hawkins and McIntosh. Their freshman years were not technically rs years. Copeland wasn't technically rs until the spring semester when he passed his fall classes, if I re...

Re: Rule Changes

I agree with the commission that their needs to be more/stricter enforcement for rules violations. The NCAA needs to stop bending over for the Power 6 schools and actually start taking those who violate the rules down. I'd fully support 1-5 year post season bans and giving up post season revenue for...
