    IUBB 2021 General Off-Season Thread

    Hallelujah! I don't have to re-subscribe to Hulu just to get BTN and pay $65 a month. Comcast Atlanta has decided to offer BTN in a package for $10 a month.

    Practice differences under Woody

    While I have no details about what goes on in practice, some of the things I've heard Woodson (and others on the coaching staff) say are encouraging to me. For example, I've heard the phrase "player development" repeatedly since Woodson was hired. In all of Archie's tenure, I don't remember ever hearing that phrase applied to IU basketball. Woody has also said, "It's my job to help him succeed," when he's talked about the potential of Geronimo, the evolution of TJD (and others). He's also talked about it being "my job to put them into a spot where they can succeed" when mentioning Kopp and Stewart on their 3-point shooting. We NEVER heard similar jargon in the Miller era. AND the players' lack of improvement individually the past four years reinforces the idea we have not had any priorities on "player development." Franklin and Thompson may have improved, but I suspect their individual efforts are more to thank for that than any individual improvement plans the previous regime might have offered. How much individual improvement did anyone else see in the rest of the roster? I saw very little. That's why I'm so encouraged by how much we're hearing about it now.

    Favorite All-Time Hoosier Basketball Player

    Tough call. I think the best COLLEGE basketball player we ever had was Scott May. Note I qualify that with "college," not wanting to riddle anyone who might think I'm slighting Isaiah or a handful of others who belong in the conversation. My favorite is a toss-up between Steve Alford and Calbert Cheaney. If the coin ever lands, I'll let you know which one won the toss.

    (2022) - PF Noah Clowney

    Something to remember: in South Carolina basketball is just something to watch after football season is over. Indiana's passion for basketball netted us guys like Al Durham and Jordan Geronimo, both of whom were overwhelmed with how popular basketball was in our state. I live in the South (Atlanta) and I can tell you that well over 90% of sports talk here is football even when it's not football season. All of his other destinations are first-and-foremost football schools, Alabama's recent basketball success notwithstanding.

    (2022) - PF Noah Clowney

    Anyone know if Noah is related to Jadeveon Clowney, the first pick in the NFL draft a few years ago? He was also from South Carolina, but not the same city (Rock Hill).

    2021 IUBB Bahamas Trip

    Tom Brew posted on SI today about Hoosiers swimming with the dolphins yesterday. A video was supposedly in the article, but my computer could not get it. Anyone else have a link to that video? Thanks in advance.

    21-22 Men’s IUBB Schedule

    Why not consider replacing it with a Midwest Classic? Kentucky, Cincinnati, Lousyville...there are a lot of possibilities. And rotate the teams so that each plays every two or three years.
  10. Best part for me is the guy is a 90% free-throw shooter. Not sure we had two guys last year whose percentages added up to 90.

    Player decisions

    Running an offense that the other team doesn't know better than our guys do might be one big positive regardless of the personnel on the floor.
  12. I suspect Matta was offered the job but had reservations about his health so we made a place for him. I'm not excited in any way about Woodson getting the job...but I hope I am wrong. I wasn't excited about Archie (I wanted Chris Mack), but I became an Archie Miller fan because he coached my team. I will feel the same way about Woodson.
  13. How far my expectations have fallen: I'm just hoping we don't have to watch any Medicare Advantage commercials during the game. Hoosiers 67 Red Chesspieces 66
