    Re: Hoosier Hoops

    Having a rule against following a recruit on twitter is just as stupid as twitter.

    Is there a rule against coaches surfing the net and reading a high school player's blog (if he has one?)

    I wasn't aware that we put Crean in for sainthood. You learn something new every day.

    SOL nailed it. Twitter is stupid.

    I agree Twitter is stupid. But the NCAA will probably have to legislate against using it in order to contact potential recruits. Just add another volume to the rulebook.

    They will have to add blogs to the volume as well, as SOL pointed out. I assume emailing is already against the rules.

    Austin Etherington from Hamilton Heights, IN has committed to IU. He's the second commit for Crean in the 2011 class.

    I think we're going to run 5 guards out there at some point. Any word on whether AJ Moye has any eligibility left to play center?

    Re: Hoosier Hoops

    An update on Muniru, Dumes, Pritchard and Jones from ITH:

    If you’re following us on Twitter, you know by now that Bawa Muniru is in Bloomington and Maurice Creek should be there shortly. And if you’ve browsed the various IU message boards, you may have read some reports of Bawa and the rest of the IU team playing pickup at the HPER.

    What you haven’t read is the following report from Inside the Hall reader Bryan, who told us via tips@insidethehall.com about his encounter with Bawa and also details the physical transformation of Tom Pritchard, Devan Dumes and Verdell Jones.

    I know there was a story run in the IDS about Bawa being at the HPER playing with all of the guys. Just to add to that story, I saw him today and offered him a ride. He was incredibly nice, smiled, and politely shook his head. I then told him to get used to ridiculous things like people stopping in traffic on the bypass. Yeah, that’s another thing, he was walking on the bypass. At the Dunn intersection. Weird. His face even has defined muscles, it’s quite ridiculous.

    I thought it might be a good idea to run a small piece on the progress of players over the course of the summer. I’ve seen a lot of players everyday over the course of the summer and some of them have undergone incredible body transformations. Tom Pritchard is a big-fat-for-instance. At the beginning of June I saw him and he looked like a wad of cookie dough. I saw him today and he looks like he’s lost at least 20 pounds. He looked really lean. Devan Dumes looks bulked up, and the stories about VJ3 hitting the weight room hard have to be true because seeing him last year and then this year yields a glaring difference. I’m a monstrous 6′2, 165lbs and I used to look about the same frame-wise as he did, but now he has some muscle to go with those 7ft. arms.


    So there you have it. Bawa’s face has ridiculous muscles and Pritchard, Dumes and Verdell are making strides in the weight room. We’re a Maurice Creek sighting away from a full roster in Bloomington. And that should happen next week. Only 63 more days until Hoosier Hysteria.

    Sadly, none of those players is John Wall or Santa Claus, so I'm not really sure there's any point to the season.

    Sure there is. Shooting for .500 is an admirable goal for the Hoosiers this season.

    I'd be thrilled with a .500 season.

    I would too, .500 season almost definately is an NIT bid, and the experience will really pay off in the next couple of years.

    There will be much partying at the BRM ranch if the Hoosiers make the NIT this season. I can tell you that.

    I wonder how that 2 star kid that Crean gave a scholarship to is coming along? Heard anything about him?

    He's no Santa Claus...

    I honestly don't know. Haven't read anything about him lately. He's a 2010 recruit anyway.

    The IDS was promising an update on him today or next week I think.
