  1. Out of state IU players get the equivalent of $53k a year with the full COA. That’s the equivalent of $70k pre-tax. They also get a bunch of free gear and free media exposure. Would TJD get more than that on a free market? Yeah probably. (Obviously he’s in-state so not quite the same). But would Logan Duncomb? Probably not. Would a third string offensive lineman on iufb? Probably not. They shouldn’t pay players salaries as that would cause too many issues, but they definitely should let players get paid for their NIL. If a business wants to pay $5k for a commercial, let them.

    Yeah that’s true, didn’t think about that

    Syracuse is technically closer, but it’s really not close to home at all. We’re talking 7.5 hours compared to 9 for IU.

    Upstate NY is a great part of the country generally, but Syracuse isn’t a very nice city. Great mall, though.

    New Jerseys/Alternate Jerseys

    Woody just spent the past few decades around NBA players. He knows what’s cool and what’s not.

    New Jerseys/Alternate Jerseys

    It’s not 1950 anymore. Guys want recognition. They want to get to the NBA because this is their career for them. They want to make it to the highest level of their profession, and they want to establish a fan base because that can help make them millions of dollars. And there isn’t anything wrong with that. “TEAM” players and guys who want recognition aren’t mutually exclusive, we’ve had plenty of guys in the past who wanted both and it worked out just fine. Take Tamar Bates, for example. From social media I can tell that he and his family want recognition for Tamar. They want Tamar Bates to be a name every college basketball fan knows. But there’s nothing I’ve seen from any of them to suggest that he isn’t a “team” guy.

    IU Trustee Election

    Do we really have to choose between money getting diverted from sports and Eric “BFF Bracelets” Pankowski? Because those… aren’t great options. Admittedly I haven’t looked into the various candidates, but surely there’s a candidate out there who cares about sports but refrains from tweeting creepy things to high school athletes. Also, you can both want money to not be diverted away from sports and not want him on the board of trustees. It’s a serious role and his online persona paints him as the exact opposite of that. Maybe he’s completely different in person, but he clearly puts himself out on the internet as a total goofball so the only conclusion I can draw is that’s how he wants to be seen.

    IU Trustee Election

    I really don’t see where you’re seeing people be “belittled” for their opinion, honestly. Maybe Eric is a really great guy in person. I don’t know, I’ve never met him. All I have to go off is his social media behavior. His social media behavior, especially toward recruits, is creepy. It’s not just “silliness,” it’s creepy. Tweeting at 17 year old recruits and saying you “had BFF necklaces made for us,” are “deciding where to get we are BFFs tattooed” and that you “changed your kid’s name to Dawson” is creepy. That’s not the kind of behavior I want to see from someone representing the university as a trustee. Being creepy is worse than being an a*****e, and IU fans already get enough crap from people for being a******s. If he doesn’t want people to see him that way then he should reevaluate his social media behavior.

    IU Trustee Election

    The guy is weird. I don’t want IU to have trustees who go running around creeping recruits out like he has done in the past. It makes IU look bad. Like, this is just weird and would probably weird me out if I was a 17-18 year old recruit. And the tweets at Dawson Garcia a couple years ago were rather creepy. Not really the guy I’d want as a trustee.

    He’s been having issues with his account for a while, I think it may even have been hacked at some point. I remember seeing some stuff a few weeks ago

    Letting more teams play in the playoff would help combat players sitting out because they don’t want to play in a random bowl game. It would make the regular season a lot more competitive, imo. For any team not named Ohio State, Alabama, or Clemson your playoff chances almost disappear once you lose a game. With a bigger playoff they still have a chance. A bigger playoff would be a ton of fun.

    I think Woody would be very surprised by that since Jerome isn’t on the team anymore..

    When you are at the top of college basketball you hire someone who will keep you there. Maybe Scheyer is that guy, but idk. Hiring a 33 year old assistant is a huge risk that Duke didn’t need to take. Duke is probably the best coaching job in college basketball. If anyone could swing for the fences and get whoever they want it’d be Duke. A couple of bad hires after replacing a legend and you’re in trouble. We know that as well as anyone.

    It might help some, but there’s a big difference between recruiting kids to come play for Coach K and recruiting kids to come play for Coach Scheyer. One has 1132 career wins, the other has 0.
