    I simply made a comment that if Marlin makes that rotation that the team is in trouble. I never said anything bad about Marlin. Coaches don’t take walk ons hoping they will become star players. They take walk ons to contribute during practices and their reward is when the games get out of hand they get to take the floor in the final minutes of the game.

    I would question your knowledge of basketball if you try to argue that another Daniel Moore is what IU needs. Yes Daniel Moore gave his best effort when he took the court, but it doesn’t change the fact that he was not a good player by Big Ten standards.

    If Marlin plays this year it is because of some injuries, or players like Gordon and Stanford turn out to not be as good as expected neither of those are good for IU.

    I would question your basketball knowledge if you are suggesting that Daniel Moore was key to IU’s success in the 2011-2012 season.

  • Phil Kundert

    I think we can all agree that everyone who posts on here probably is not good enough to play for IU, but that doesn’t change the fact that we all have opinions. I think Kyl470 was simply stating that it probably isn’t a good sign for IU if Marlin makes the rotation.

    Ole Man I’m not sure if you are cranky or not, but I read all of Kyl470 posts on this and at no point did he say that Marlin isn’t part of the team, that he shouldn’t be on the bench with the team. All he said was that if he makes the rotation that is a bad sign and I have to agree with him. You’re right that most teams don’t have 5 star players riding the bench, but title teams also don’t have walk ons in their regular rotation.

  • Kyl470

    Thanks guys for being reasonable. Do walk ons like Marlin deserve to take part in Hoosier Hysteria, sit on the bench, get rings for titles? Absolutely they do. Of course they are part of the team, but their contributions are running the other teams plays in practice trying to help guys get prepared for the next game. If walk ons are cracking the rotation it’s because the scholarship guys are hurt or not performing like they should.

  • Ole Man

    Are you and Kyl related? LOL!
    This has gotten way off track. Go back and read my original statement.
    Daniel Moore played an important part for that team–as a practice player; as a bench warmer; as an occasional “wake-up” call for more talented players; as a garbage man.
    Those of you who continue this dumb argument make yourselves look more and more foolish.


  • Ole Man

    Only cranky when my original thought gets blown up into crud (that’s the nice word) because somebody wants to show how basketball smart they are.

  • Ole Man

    Then he should have said that and shut up without all the extraneous other BS. Go back to my original opinion–that’s all it was, an opinion–simple and straightforward; right or wrong.

  • ronb

    there is one thing the ole man knows that most seem to not know and that is Marlin is not a typical wall on from High School. Marlin sat out last year because he was a starting guard at a D1 school so he has time playing college ball already that makes him different than a normal
    walk on.
