    Player decisions

    Mixed feelings about this. The Woodson train is rolling and I guess Armaan wasn’t ready to get on. Best of luck to him and I’m glad he is in the ACC vs Illinois.

    Player decisions

    We could potentially return our entire team minus Al Durham but adding Xavier Johnson, Logan Duncomb, and Parker Stewart (Considering Stewart an add because he sat out) I never thought any of this was possible after Archie was fired. Hoosiers!!!!

    Xavier Johnson - Commits to IU (PG)

    As much as I respect Al Durham and the work he put in at IU I believe adding XJ and bringing back Stewart makes the guard rotation significantly better. At least on paper. XJ sitting at 6’3” 200 plus pounds give a physical guard we sorely lacked for several years. Love the way this team is shaping up.

    Barr-Reeve beats Kouts 64-48. Curt Hope from BR finishes with 23 points and 19 rebounds in a great State Championship effort.

    Worst Losses of the Archie Era

    Every single loss to Purdue. Like a toothache that never got fixed.

    (2022) - SG C. J. Gunn to INDIANA

    Gunn is 6’5” and maybe still growing. Super athletic with length I imagine that is a perfect fit with what CMW wants to do with switching on defense.
  7. “Just being around him this short time I’ve been around him, I’ve just grown to love the guy. He’s an old school coach, he’s a player’s coach. You’re gonna get a guy that’s gonna put pressure on you for sure but he wants to get the best out of you, he wants you to be the best damn player you’re capable of being. I’m really going to miss him coaching me. I really learned a lot from him. He’s one of those coaches who, he believes in you. … I’m really going to miss him being on the sideline with me.” This is a quote from Taj Gibson and I gotta say if something like this doesn’t resonate with recruits I’m not sure what will. The more I learn about Coach Woodson the more it feels right,
  8. If Woodson gets shooters to fit a pro style offense he could be very successful and that can be fun basketball to watch. Spread them out, hit from 3 with some dunks sprinkled in. Sounds good to me.
  9. I’m encouraged if the staff is excellent. If Matta proves to be healthy that would be huge. Maybe a Lewis type to the staff would make it bettter. At least an IU guy is change in what has been going in since the early 2000s

    If it’s Woodson why not hire him a week and a half ago. Before half the team went into the transfer portal.

    Chris a great dude and I appreciate what he brings to the board. It’s a lot of fun to speculate and have wishful thinking until a turd “you” gets dropped into the punch bowl.

    Candidate Thread: Mike Lewis

    Michael Lewis was a guy that stood up against Knight if he thought he wasn’t in the wrong. He is a guy that will stand up for IU basketball as a coach. He played for Jasper and I remember watching him play in the regional against my cousin’s Northeast Dubois team. They played him very physical and tried to get In his head but he ended up with a billion assist and an easy win. Im a fan and I actually wouldn’t mind him getting a shot to coach at IU.
