    Next Year’s Roster

    My understanding is that college men's basketball rosters are limited to 13 scholarship players. However. the NCAA has granted an extra year of eligibility to all the players that played last year. That means that the number of college players is going to increase next year (5th year seniors + incoming freshmen). In fact the number should remain higher for the next 4 years until the "extra" year players are out of the system. My question is whether the max limit on players is going to be increased. Will the "extra" year players count against the number of scholarships? While IU only has a one freshman class, it may have a major impact on a number of programs, depending on the rule.
  2. Indiana has just hired the most experienced coach in program history. 1. Started at IU for 4 years 2. 2000+ career scorer 3. All American 4. 11 year NBA player and 10,000+ scorer 5. 14 year NBA coach - head coach of 2 teams 6. From Indiana and member of Indiana basketball hall of fame. So he lacks college experience but he has been successful at everything he has done in the past. If he hadn't have been successful his career as a player and coach would have been very brief. To have a 25 year professional career means that he has been able to develop relationships and is respected. Wonder if the others that might have been suggested for the IU job could have matched the success that Woodson has had. The next level up from college is littered with "great" players and coaches the washed out very quickly. Mike Woodson has earned a chance to turn the IU program around and those that can't see that are idiots. NOBODY can see the future

    Reminds me of the movie about the Cleveland Browns screwing everything up on draft day and then everything turning out great in the end.

    Flash! This just in! Hold the presses! My wife just got back from the hairdressers and she was talking to another lady whose husband is the coach of a 12u girls basketball team. According to this guy, a friend of his is second cousin to a prospect from northern Indiana that may or may not be a future Indiana recruit, depending on the new hire. The prospective recruit's father is the brother of a bartender in Indianapolis. It seems the bartender saw a group of coaches drawing straws in the back of the bar to see who the next IU coach would be and one of the guys won. Since the bartender isn't a sports fan, he didn't know the identity of the coaches but he did say that he was male and sorta short but kinda tall too. One of the customers at the bar did know the identity of the winner but since he was wearing a Purdue sweatshirt he didn't care because he was more interested in ordering a boilermaker. There you go! Inside information! We have a new coach and it will be announced sometime in the future.

    Thomas graduated with a masters of education from the University of California at Berkeley, tweeting his cap and gown and retweeting congratulations to other UC Berkeley graduates. He said in a recent Huffington Post story that he has "studied the connections between education and sports. Looked it up before anybody had a hissy fit.

    So why is this even a topic? School coaches have degrees. School coaches teach a few classes. Whether anyone agrees or disagrees with this, it has no impact on the search for a new coach at IU. That is just the way it is, but it has no impact on what is going on in Bloomington. So let's just move on. We are arguing over nothing.

    The NBA teams are professional sports franchises. Colleges are SCHOOLS. Each have their own standards for hiring.

    Wasn't there a major football coach fired a few years ago because he didn't have a degree and lied about it on his employment application?

    What difference does it make? Every coach we are interested in have at least a bachelors degree.

    Know that Knight taught classes, usually how to be a coach or Xs and Os type classes. Know this is dating me be when I was at IU I had a PE class taught by Lou Watson, who was the IU coach at the time. It is all part of being part of the faculty.
