I need to see who is not going to be healthy, but IU has the 'talent' to beat any team in the nation.  The tough thing is that there may be too few of minutes for some of the freshmen.

 

Colin Hartman provides the senior leadership.  Thomas Bryant staying and Anunoby have a year under his belt, this has the chance to be a great year for the Hoosiers.

Yes everyones fairly healthy  , Jonson may not be 100 percent at beginning of practice from ankle surgery. Thomas Bryant is a beast has really added muscle mass . Wont be moved around underneath by anyone in CB in my opinion. Hartman is healthy after surgery as is Morgan who has added some muscle as well. They are projecting OG as a starter. Will have some very good bench strength. 2 new players McSwain and Newkirk have college experience. McSwain being a high flying athlete with out taking a toke lol. Also hear Colin is healthy.

I was kind of surprised Anunoby didn't go to the draft. I think someone would have taken him. Very good athleticism and a very good motor.

Anunoby has a lot of potential but him entering last year's draft would have been an absolute travesty.

Maybe, but this coming draft will be much more stacked than last years. IU should be glad hes back, heck of a player.

Anunoby is #1 draft prospect from big 10 Bryant #2 according to what I read a couple days ago. Watched IUs practice on BTN Saturday big things are expected from Morgan as well. Was impressed with the big boy from Col. especially on D blocked Bryants shot . Love the athletic ability from this team.

9 games I think on RP like Boeheim and Larry Brown.

Honestly, every school should deny punishments until the NCAA does something to UNC. I just don't get how a school can do 20+ years of academic fraud and still not be touched by the NCAA. Hell, Kelvin Sampson at IU did dumb things regarding phone calls and texts I think it was and he was tossed to the wolves. Yet Williams is still free. I don't get it. Hopefully theres no UNC fans around here haha but its the truth.

The only way MSU wins this is if they are in the 50-60 pt. range.  Duke is strong.

Yeah, I think Duke overall has the best team and most talent this year. Makes me sick saying it, but wouldn't be surprised if coach K gets his 6th ring this year. Grayson Allen (can't stand him) coming back was big for them, on top of who they brought in.

Agree....I am looking forward to his defensive improvement.  He could really become a big time shot blocker IMO.

Villanova could actually repeat.  The Purdue game was as good as it gets.  I watched more of it than the Pacers.

Indiana's win over Kansas shows me Indiana has what it takes.

I want to see them play with the same sense of urgency every game.  Tomorrow night will be a case of that.  Defense needs improved as well.  Good guards get easy lay ups...See Frank Mason.

    • Round 1 - #15 A: Budda Baker FS – Bob Sanders comparison...need we say more.  Longevity of safeties in the NFL playing into their mid-30s has proven return on investment thus this is our wisest selection here.  Too many other teams also in dire need at FS and chances of landing either Budda Baker or Marcus Williams in Round 2 looking more like a long shot.  Two years without a valid starting FS is unacceptable imo B: Hasson Reddick OLB – With offseason movements no long a pressing need imo but definitely would be an upgrade. C: Chidobe Awuzie RCB – imo one of the best right corners in this year’s draft and immediate defensive improvement.  Experienced at playing the outside, slot and even safety.   Round 2 - #46 A:  Kevin King RCB – Darius Butler replacement that can play FS as well. B: Marcus Williams FS – At some point we need to address FS needs.    Round 3 - #80 A: Duke Riley LB – early on my watch list and have enjoyed seeing his draft stock rise. Duke should give RILB Edwin Jackson competition as a full-time starter. B: Joe Mixon RB – Would be a draft steal to obtain a talented running back here.  Although am holding any RB projections off until next year’s draft with futures on RB Saquon Barkley.   Round 4 - #122 A: Jack Butt TE – obviously a glaring need to add roster depth with a talented TE B: Pat Elflein C/OG – offensive line depth   Round 4 - #137 A: Ryan Switzer Slot WR – Someone needs to push Phillip Dorsett as a full time starter. B:  George Kittle TE – team need to add roster depth   Round 4 - #144 A: Lorenzo Jerome SS – imo Lorenzo has been overlooked and is one of the better strong safeties with the skill set to be a Day 1 starter. B:  Matt Milano LILB – we need roster help on our left interior side.  Matt has a strong chance to be a full-time starter when healthy.   Round 5 - #158 A: Josh Carraway OLB B: Danny Isidora ROG   Free Agents: 3 choices: James Quick Slot WR (2013 MVP U.S. Army All American Bowl) Joey Ivie NT Marcus Oliver ILB - multiple defensive player of the game accolades
    • Not even gonna say anything about this
    • It's having a personal opinion... Why would I put somebody at #1 if I don't think they're the #1 there? Sure it causes controversy among this forum, but I have better things to do than to fake my opinions
    •   Reddick is my biggest draft crush as an ILB/OLB hybrid. Although Lattimore being available might just be too good to pass up.
    •   Hope some of them won't in the future. Agree. For real, the "Pro day" is a wash for the majority of top-rated players who've attended the Combine and completely useless or a formality for others. It's "purpose", like the combine, is to have college prospects meet with NFL organizations, interview with them, and display their tangible traits on the field. But nothing good comes from the Pro Day, just like the wonderlic test! ["Wonderlic" sounds like this Mystical Lolipop Willy Wonka invented that turns your tongue different colors and renders you to ruminate the finer details of life with each lick, dumb. The only thing more asinine is this crazy test. IT SAYS NOTHING ABOUT FOOTBALL INTELLIGENCE yet it gets used as an evaluation tool, but many NFL officiais know the test SAYS NOTHING about a potential career.]   Understatement of the year PEYTON "P-Money" MANNING had one of the worst pro day's and I think his football career didn't suffer too much despite it. Speaking of money & the Bottom Line, one of the biggest rewards of a pro-day, like John Ross at combine, is that a prospect can greatly IMPROVE their draft stock = money, by blazing their 40-time (separating themselves from their classmates) or "answering a question", i.e. does "Luck have enough Arm Strength?" then he throws a ball +60 yards in the air going against the wind. -Pssh, such a waste of time for some top guys. What does M. Garrett have to prove/gain from his pro day???   Honestly the pro-day means the most to: players who aren't on a team's radar, did not receive an invite to the combine, or need to display some trait that will get them noticed, drafted, or signed later as an UDFA. That's it! Anything else is superfluous and too much of a formality for me. I think people are starting to realize there are glaring flaws in the Scouting Process, *ESPECIALLY* with Quarterback evaluations. What gets me tripped up is that people think a "40-time" equates = a good football player. ^Check^, Jerry Rice, Larry Fitzgerald 40 times. The overall idea is that a combine, 40 time, and pro day are great to get exposure & higher draft stock = more money$ but this Process is just a game that scouts, agents, and players play to figure out "stock" for a prospect in the draft. But honestly a CB that can COVER receivers and has enough  functional speed -"Polian quote" a la D. King should be drafted higher than a CB who runs 4.3 yet has horrendous technique. What people are missing is that DBs usually don't get burned due to lack of speed; it's lack of technique. Fast corners get burned, see Jason David, and those with proper technique tend to cover receivers. My point is that unless you're making hay and raising your draft stock, = money, sit out and let your tape speak for yourself. I like John Ross' 40 time, but for WRs this year, I think Fred Ross has the best hands in the class and I'd rather have a receiver with Hands than with record-breaking speed.   'When it's 4th and 3, give me the receiver who makes a 1st Down!'
