Wow. Six walk-ons.

I wonder how many of them will NOT be on the team next year after the incoming class arrives.

DD,

I’m wondering the same thing, I’m sure that it will help out in practice, but that is a lot of walk-on’s for one team. It is a shame that this is what has to happen in the aftermath of the previous staff. Go HOOSIERS!!!!!

No doubt it’s a short-term fix, just too bad they couldn’t scrounge up a 6’9″ walk-on from someplace…..

Im sure most of the kids know that they wont be here next year, unless they have incredible break out seasons.

I can garantee you that either way for most of them, especially the last couple that had ‘try outs’; it will be the thrill of their lifetime just to be there.

Anybody heard anything about the recruits who backed out at Arizona once Olsen said he was retiring? Could IU have a chance at any of them? What a clustermess that is at AZ; they had Kevin O’Neill lined up as Olsen’s successor, only to have Lute decide to come back, which ran O’Neill off, and now they’re in fall practice and Lute abruptly retires. That almost rivals IU’s turmoil of the last year ……… almost.

Congrats to Evan, welcome to the Hoosiers! However, i think we’ve got enough guards now.

I go to the all star games every year, what all star team was the White kid on, I cant find his name in the all star books from last year or the year before, I done some more checking and I cant find his name even on an honorable mention.

Shawn T.,

You’re right. I can’t find his name on the Indiana All-Star roster.

We got that fact from a press release put out by IU; but it is poor reporting by us to not check it.

I’ll do some more checking into this.

Shawn T.,

I was the one who originally reported that White was an Indiana All-Star, and it was my mistake not to double check the press release.

Lessons to be learned.

I just wanted to take the blame and apologize for the error.

what ever happened to the crack of dawn tryouts for walk-ons? what ever happened to the tryouts where the walkons had to earn the respect of the coaches and were rewarded with a position on the squad? now they just appoint a player as a walk-on…lame

If you have been having no problems UGG Classic Short in running or racing, it would be hard to recommend a change of shoe. It is difficult, if not impossible to improve Classic Short Boots upon a situation in which all is going great. I would advise getting a few pairs of what seem to be your Classic Short ugg boots favorite shoes before the manufacturer changes the shoe. Historically unannounced changes are often made by manufacturers. This can vary from a subtle change in the cushioning around the heel to a major Classic Short uggs structural midsole change. Manufacturers have discontinued a model of shoe, only to resume production a few years later ugg 5825 with a line of shoes boasting the same name, but with completely different characteristics
