Two seasons under head basketball coach Archie Miller.
Two major boxes left unchecked.
Big Ten size? Nope.
With 6-foot-8 Juwan Morgan and 6-foot-6 Freddie McSwain primarily manning the five spot over the last two years, that point is beyond debate.
Big Ten grit? We go back to this comment from legendary IU voice Don Fischer in January on The Dan Dakich Show:
“My biggest concern with this team right now is they don’t have an edge. There’s gotta be a fire in your gut. There’s gotta be an ability to go out there and be excited to play the game. I’m talking about the fire in the belly, the want to compete, the want to go out there and take somebody’s head off.”
For us, that is another concern that went back to the Miller’s first season, and had roots established before he arrived.
Sure, there are other lingering concerns, like three-point shooting, but there is no doubt that size…
