FanPost

Did I really just see????



I don't get on here much but I was just reading through the comments on the fanposts and did I really just see Just AJ or whatever compare Collin Hartman to Robbie Hummel?? If you think he could be first team all B1G as a freshman even at Northwestern, then you sir are crazy. I've watched him play multiple times. He is a very streaky shooter that is not aggressive with the ball and will often settle for those turn around little fadeaways because he has no other moves. He is not near the ball handler that Hummel was nor near as good of a passer/floor leader. That comparison truly made me laugh though. Jay Simpson will be like Draymond Green. They are both skilled big guys so that must mean he will have a Draymond Green effect at Purdue right? I think Jay will be a very good player for us but I would never compare him to someone like that.

Another thing that made me laugh was seeing 87's comments about Trey Lyles..IU is NOT on the level of UCLA, Duke, UNC, MSU, OSU, UK, Cuse, Arizona, Kansas just to name a few. They do not pull in top 5 or even 10 classes consistently. They have 1 B1G championship in 2 decades and you're wanting to make that comparison? I didn't realize finishing 5th in conference suddenly means that you are a top 5 program again simply based on hype. I like IU's 13 class...but it is by no means a "blue-blood" level class.

If Trey Lyles's dream to play at IU is true..he would never have decommitted..simple as that. Other schools have much more to offer than IU. You know, like consistent success, conference champiosnhips, final 4's. IU is not blue blood level anymore. RMK is gone and Crean is not a tenth of the coach that he was. I would rank Crean somewhere around the 5th/6th best coach in the B1G let alone the country. I hate the term "blue-blood" MSU is not a blue blood but dammnit they actually win year in and year out unlike IU.

Lyles is not going to recommit to IU and Blackmon will decommit as well and I'm just going off of what I've heard. Lyles, Lyle, and Blackmon will all play together at UK. I really despise IU but their fans are the main reason why (not all fans). Just the ones that still call themselves elite and think they are going to win another title this year because of their preseason top 3 ranking. I can see Mich, MSU, OSU being better in the CONFERENCE. If IU meets someone like Kansas in the tournament I will take Kansas 7 out of 10 times simply based on Crean vs. Self regardless of what Kansas has. This rant felt pretty damn good.
