    2021 General Recruiting Thread

    Chances of coming in at the last second on a HS recruit would be tough unless it is someone we have an in with (like Fife or Hunter was already recruiting him before the coaching change). It's always possible though, especially if a recruit doesn't like any of his current options. Portal is more of an even playing field so seems like a more likely source of getting a player to come in. It would be a surprise if we can pull in a highly rated hs recruit that could immediately help our team. I think have a portal this year where no one has to sit out a year really helps us in this coaching change. If we lose AF or Race, then we have a lot more options for immediate help.

    I think we could put her behind the basket during free throws.

    I think some people are seeing it's likely going to be the same roster (minus durham and possibly race and franklin) so don't expect much different in results. Personally, I think the results will depend largely on how well the offense and defense plan work under the new staff. It will be interesting to see how well our current players fit the new offense and defense as well. I'm excited that we may actually see an offense that works and one that is more exciting to watch.

    How was my statement creating failures? Withholding full judgement on his recruiting isn't saying he failed. I won't blame woodson if franklin leaves. Woodson is just tasked with building the roster and winning on the court. The transfer portal will give him chances to replace Franklin and build a roster with someone else. Probably a good year to switch coaches given the portal activity and no one having to sit out. In the long run, Woodson will graded on the big picture and how the finished roster looks now and down the road. Right now all we have is a snapshot.

    I don't know anything more than their body language on the court and what has been stated by the players but I was getting the impression not many kids loved the former coach and that the exodus would have happened if we kept Archie.

    I wasn't being negative and you can't say people are moving the goal posts if you're comparing posts from different people. Using only posts from me, please show where i have moved the goal posts. I was meh when woodson was first hired but so far he has done well filling out 2 assistant positions and getting most players to stay with the team. I was always on the boat to give him a chance and so far so good. But I'm also not going to be rainbows and unicorns. Yes, it was an accomplishment to hold on to tjd and the others. But I also don't think it's the same as convincing a 5 star player to come play for him when that player has no connection to IU previously. What Woodson has done so far is a good start. If you want to call that negative, then fine. But don't blame me for moving goal posts when that has no basis in facts.

    I would say it is probably a little easier to get someone to stay than it is to get someone to come.
  8. I'm just hoping Fife was lead recruiter for Emoni Bates lol
  9. Someone gave Dolson a list of coaching candidates and he misread it as a list of everyone to hire.

    Assistant Coach Thread

    We could have an IT person create a database of Brown's basketball knowledge so we don't have to deal with anything else :). Woodson could just go to a terminal and input questions for the larrybase.

    Assistant Coach Thread

    we will have the best non-bench basketball think tank in the country. Probably have an intern working overtime figuring out job titles.

    Who gets to determine stars? Next thing we know, players will magically lose a star when they commit to UK lol

    True. Crazy to think Fife was about 20 years ago.

    Most UK players weren't there long enough to make connections to the school lol. UNC players are just glad to get out there without having to go to real classes.
