    For sure. As with many things, it depends. As an 'all-but-given', would likely greatly accelerate Woodson's departure if things don't go well this year. As for what it would do beyond this year? It depends on who the successor would be. If it was a no-name mid-major guy that could be a real downside - if it were a big, big name it would likely have the Calipari/Arkansas effect. Pre-pledging of NIL donations will also likely influence the choice for the next hire.

    And while that scenario is certainly a possibility, it is also possible that other major donors who would be happy to see Woody exit as coach would step up to back his replacement. Might take a couple of years to see how this wild west NIL stuff shakes out when there are coaching changes or programs that don't meet donor expectations.

    Imagine making such a crucial error in judgement about my favorite player. I hope you learn from this!

    A program’s budget can change year to year as well. A new coach can lead to an influx of cash, with John Calipari’s arrival at Arkansas a prime example. A losing season, or a coach falling out of favor with prominent donors, might cause the well to dry up. This is something I suspect, as well. I think there is some risk in having our first major donor spend tied up in a Mike Woodson job save effort. If this experiment does not go well, I could see IU falling back to the pack in NIL and some major donors being reluctant to pony up large amounts of cash feeling burned.

    I understand that.
  10. They have no choice. When you have to play two or three games a day and up to 14 games in five days and often dodge rain, they can't all be at night. Someone has to play in the morning. Every conference tournament does this and there is no other way to do it as much as I hate it. No different than Big Ten and NCAA Tourney in March in basketball.

    So glad to see Schauffele win the PGA after collapsing last week v Rory. Did not want to see anyone attached to the LIV win and definitely didn’t want to see DeChambeau win. Great drama at the end. Hope it sets the stage for an equally great US Open

    Was just offered by Stanford today. He’s an intriguing prospect and may not be done growing. I think he has a higher ceiling than Sisley.

    Awesome! I was concerned about the 7th game being back in the Garden. We kicked some butt! Go Pacers.

    I believe they set a game 7 1st quarter scoring record. They were on fire. NBA leading offense in full effect

    I understand where you’re coming from. I just think that in today’s game every year matters, and you can’t have a team that is exposed badly by 1 or 2 injuries. That falls on the staff. They need to do their due diligence and fill the gaps so we’re prepared for the inevitable injuries

    Haliburton is a star. What a great showing and on the road in hostile NY, seriously outstanding showing and it starts with Carlisle and then is run by Haliburton. Pacers won’t beat the C’s (but damn I’d love it if they did), but they’re still young and have a chance to develop into a contender. Great to see

    I don’t think I have ever seen a team dominate like this in a game 7 when their first playoff win was a few weeks ago.

    As I understand it, the Student Bill of Rights does not guarantee a spot on the team... just 4 years of education opportunity.
