    Woodson and the HT on his new roster

    A Flory Bidunga type or less freshman in the Hatton spot. He’s only going to play 15 min or less at Kansas. The debate is a talented freshman vs Hatton. JHS was the guard equivalent. He was going to be more of a 6th man. Injury gave him a chance and he had it. High ceiling young guy.

    Gotta be NIL related with that grouping?

    Not a bad list tbh. Woody garners zero respect except from his backers burners. Hope he can prove his worth this season. Not holding my breath but also going to allow myself to get excited about a talented roster. Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners mobile app

    Woodson and the HT on his new roster

    Yeah, probably the way it’ll playout, but Reneau will cap our ceiling as the 5. Doesn’t rebound, block , or defend well enough at the 5. And I love him p. I also understand a lot of teams don’t use 13. But we have some guard overlap of borderline unplayable guys. Thus leaving us short handed with size and rim protection.

    Woodson and the HT on his new roster

    Woody might regret not filling roster spot 13. The 5 spot rests in Ballo’s hands, which is great but if we lose him things are going to be rough at the 5. Hard for me not to worry about this. Maybe Hatton can alleviate my concerns but that isn’t going to happen. Bart Torvik and Bossi don’t even know who he is. He’s gonna be overwhelmed by B1G talent. I think the staff is super cocky with this roster and it has a glaring hole in it. BUT I love Ballo, so there’s that. Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners

    Florida is going to be a nasty matchup for Edmonton. McDavid Is so good but the Florida physicality and the Edmonton goaltending weakness flips this to Florida in my mind. Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners

    IU Basketball News and Notes

    Also if you want to actually discuss the possibility let’s do it. The landscape has changed completely. College coaching is NBA-lite nowadays with “payrolls”. Everything has changed. I don’t expect it or even think we need it. Just get a respected basketball mind and keep NIL at the tippy top. The formula is different.

    IU Basketball News and Notes

    Yea, I was expecting at least Kentucky to lure and bigger fish. And maybe Louisville. Here’s the thing though. Big fish in the past had the connection to wrangle money and deals behind the scenes. Now that isn’t necessary. Just get a good basketball coach and spend the money in NIL/Etc. I think schools also realize this.

    You’re special. I LOL’d at my own post to demonstrate that I realize it’s an unrealistic hope. I waste no time on the “delusion”. You are just too dense to figure it all out.

    Sadly feel the same. Also sadly hanging on to hope Brad Stevens wants the gig in the next couple years. Lol. Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners mobile app

    IU Basketball News and Notes

    That was one of my earliest signs things weren’t good. The Senior nights were so awkward and told lots of silent truths. I think 2 years was enough but that was never going to be acceptable. I really hope we have some ideas for our Woody replacement in 1-3 years. This past years coaching search didn’t boost confidence in our options. Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners mobile app

    Fire Coach Woodson Thread

    ‘Poke the bear’ then act astonished when the bear pokes back. There a several that have given up on Woodson. But the VAST preponderance of fans are in the ‘prove it’ stance. If Woodson struggles this season, it will unfortunately get ugly and you can’t really blame the fanbase if it goes that way. Contrarily, if we play well and win you will see a surge of fan support that will make anyone proud. It’s so simple. Spending days and months debating Woodson is a giant waste of time but to each their own. We will find out in 6 months from now if Woodson has the goods.

    Fire Coach Woodson Thread

    MAYBE, IU had other representatives there as Woodson doesn't plan to be head IUBB coach by that time? I doubt it, but it would make some sense. I feel like I have a notate everything in this thread with "I want Woodson to crush it and be our coach as long as he is crushing it." Media is never going to like Woodson. He doesn't seem to care about that and neither did Knight obviously. It wouldn't hurt to get Indiana some positive PUB, but it's not a mandatory thing, if winning.

    Me neither. Hatton is their backup big. They’re content. They don’t want chemistry problems and playing time problems. I think you can navigate that or at least I think you should be able to. Our drop off from starter to backup is about as big as you’ll see. I get Ballo gets 1.0 million so you don’t want to threaten his PT but it’s a potential weak spot. So much rides on him this year. I guess, maybe Woody goes Reneau at 5 in those circumstances but Reneau will have a lot of problems with legit 5s out there defensively. My hope was, get a better backup. But with Hatton I’d say get a different, defensive type big guy that could log specific type minutes. This is all pointless as we are set but I’ve got my fingers crossed.
