    Why is Indiana basketball imploding one year removed from a "return to prominance?"

    Why would anyone blame Crean for this?
    They shouldn't... But if there's any way that it gets him fired quicker then I'm fine with it counting against him anyway!
    Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.

    I read he was a stretch big, and he is 6'9 but only 200 lbs. I am not sure this solves Indiana's paint problems, but the dude did hit 51% of his 3's last year. Best case scenario is he stretches the floor and opens up lanes for Yogi.

    Granted I don't know anything about this kid, that April kid either, and I know IU obviously just needs bodies next year on the block, but I don't really get why Crean just isn't banking scholarships and making heavy play major minutes from day one pushes for top tier 2015 bigs. these dudes are obviously going to get recruited over and it's not like they're going to do anything as true freshman (I assume anyway). I'm seriously not hating, I just really don't get it, those dudes are going to transfer and it's going to hurt pipelines for the sake of having 5 fouls. this Priller kid looks like a walk on.

    or hell, maybe he found a diamond I guess.

    Crean doesn't bank scholarships. Like, ever. He's on record saying he'd rather have too many players than not enough. We're going to have six freshmen again next season and probably 3 of them will graduate/go pro.


    I don't like to be critical of players who sign with us without really knowing them, but this is a classic case of Crean being Crean. A senior transfer would help a lot more next season. Instead, we'll continue to have defections because he's wasting so many scholarships on guys who can't contribute just to fill the roster.

    Priller averaged nearly 18 points per game playing for a 5A school (largest class) in Texas. He also shot 51% from 3 and once scored 30 points in the second half of a game.


    So there's that, I guess.

    His job is on the line. Time isn't on his side, and he knows it.

    All I know is 5* (Perea) or no-star, more of Crean's bigs have resembled Bawa Muniru than Cody Zeller. I'm less inclined to blame the kid than the coach on that one.

    There was a Q&A with this Priller kid. Some real gems in here:

    Q - Why Indiana?

    Priller: It's Indiana, it is a great basketball school. I looked up the campus on the internet. Looked up all the things about basketball. The head coach, Tom Crean, came in to watch me play at my school. I liked him, liked their assistant.
    Q - At the very end what other schools were involved -- the colleges you had to say no to?

    Priller: Albany, University of Illinois-Chicago, Drexel and Lamar.

    Huh? It was pretty clear he was talking about the Hoosiers. He even responded to their phone number tweet. I don't really know how else you could have taken that.

    It would have been funnier if they had posted Purdue's phone #.

    For state pride alone, I would honestly root for Purdue over any B1G program besides Indiana at this point. Our state is just struggling that bad

    It was funny I was watching the special on the 94 draft this morning . The quote went something like this(the guy was referring to the #1 pick from Ohio St) "The main knock on him is he only plays well vs Purdue and he doesn't show up in big games"

    When IU beats the crap out of Purdue in something, it can't go unnoticed.


    The baseball team swept the Boilers this weekend 6-0, 7-3 and 12-3. Purdue's starting pitcher in today's game threw a shutout in his high school state championship game. IU knocked him out after one inning in which they batted around and scored five runs.

    IU baseball is several steps above the competition in the B1G. Nice to see, I hope they can host another regional and make a run at another College World Series.
