    Zero chance. Some just can't let go of the power they've been given as a result of this virus.
  3. I love the pickup. Tired of seeing us not only trot out a 6'8" center at times, but also lose out on tweener types like Dawson Garcia, Keion Brooks, and Trey Kaufman who don't want to go to a school where they might possibly have to play the 5. Huge fan of all the new faces this off season.

    Their board says Boston died too. If true, that's awful. Wow.
  6. Jesus, all the guy did was present a similar situation at NC State that should resonate here. Obviously he's not suggesting Mike Woodson is guaranteed to fail. However, so many fans are pointing to Woodson's NBA experience as proof he "can flat out coach" or whatever cliche you want to throw out there, when in Lowe's case that was clearly not the case. Apparently presenting uncomfortable truths, or anything but unbridled enthusiasm for Mike Woodson gets you vilified around here. It's possible to want him to succeed but also question the decision to hire him at the same time.
  7. Thanks for the insight. Now run and duck for cover, because you're about to labelled a hater.
  8. Maybe we can get Keion Brooks to transfer in. I'm sure he could use a fresh start.
  9. Yeah you wouldn't want to hire a coach based on how successful they've been recently. SMH, some of you guys are seriously putting yourselves through quite the display of mental gymnastics to convince yourselves we didn't settle on Woodson.
  10. I liked that part of the process, basically everything except the guy Dolson decided on. If you asked every athletic director of a Power 5 school to put together a list of 10 candidates they would interview if they needed to hire someone, do you think Mike Woodson cracks any of those lists? This is not a hire that a big boy program like Kansas, Kentucky, North Carolina, etc. would make. This hire is a massive, massive reach. If it's true he targeted Woodson after being denied by Stevens, and he never made a call to Chris Beard, then that is a huge question mark against Dolson. Seriously, that is incompetence at its finest.
  11. Nearly zero downside? Geez... How about we never do better a 65% winning percentage (which is what he's shown his ceiling is), and only make the tournament every other year. He fails to connect with high school kids and doesn't recruit well, because let's face it, a lot of people don't even know who he is and he's never recruited before. Like it or not, kids want to be recruited by the head coach, not just the assitants. He also tarnishes the positive legacy he has here, gets fired after 5 or 6 subpar years, and we're right back in this same place hoping for Brad Stevens again.
  12. Great he can explain to recruits why he was only a mediocre head coach even with all those great players.
  13. The only thing that matters is where they went to school. I'd prefer an all IU coaching staff.
  14. Didn't TJD see that picture of Woodson standing next to Carmelo Anthony? Show that to him and I'm sure he'll get excited.
  15. Yeah, no other college head or assistant coach can say that. GMAFB
