    We have commitments from the two with the lowest numbers in the list.

  • aerialM

    …and people say IU fans are pessimistic.

  • Indiana Red

    Not sure why, but your post reminds me of the most well-crafted cinematic line of all time:

    “If it bleeds, we can kill it.”

    Get to the chopper, jam52.

    We really need more than two average recruits for 2010 . And we REALLY need one of them to be a BIG man . It shouldnt be this hard to sell an indiana scholarship with the PROMISE of playing time to a big time recruit .

  • Kelin Blab

    kentuckyhoosier…..I think it is harder than we think. You can sell the promise of playing time, having a scholly, at a big time program…..but Coach….”I want to play in the big dance” but Coach you guys won 6 games last year, then 9 games this year……

    What would be your response? Especially when Duke and Kentucky has offered the same kid…..

  • justin288

    jam52, Sheehey only played the first half in a blowout win.

  • marsh21

    Hopefully are guys can play great defense because I'm not seeing much from the other side. You must score the ball as a certain other coach likes to say.

  • Wish

    If possible, can you put rebounds in the recap line instead of points. That's the most important thing we need. I don't care if Zeller put up 50 last night if he's only grabbing 7-8 boards. Might as well get the mind set right from the get go.

  • All I have to report, unfortunately, is normally points. Only a couple players have rebounding stats published.

  • GFDave

    Sheehey has been scoring well all season, routinely into the 20s. VO is not a scorer.

  • GFDave

    I agree that we need a big, mobile guy. Not necessarily a back to the basket guy, but more of a DJ White type of player.

  • chitowniufan

    Lets recruit some solid JUCO players (most importantly some 4s and solid 5s). Start winning with those guys and the freshman recruiting will get easier and better. Remember once upon time when IU had Keith Smart and Dean Garrett? But without improved coaching ability does it really matter who we recruit?

  • GFDave

    We need better players, including bigger players, and JUCOs are a way to go in limited quantity to fill that need.

    I like our coach and I think he has plenty of coaching ability. 70% W/L record at Marquette shows that.
