    Name, Image & Likeness (NIL)

    That's a great link, appreciate it... I agree that starting out, TJD would not get millions overseas. Someone with his college pedigree would almost certainly be playing in either the top European leagues or China, so he'd probably start out making 6 figures pretty easily. With good performance that could increase into the millions.
  2. Didn't hear the interview... but if Dakich thinks the program hasn't done anything for him, then that is truly mind blowing. After he graduated high school, he literally spent the next 16 years of his life attending and then working for Indiana University. Dakich's coaching career, his radio show, and his job at ESPN all happened because of those 16 years he spent in Bloomington. If he really doesn't think Indiana did anything for him, then he needs his head examined.

    Bloomington Food Choices

    Mother Bear's is the only local pizza place that anyone outside of Monroe County has heard of, so if Portnoy had gone to a place like Swing In or Lennie's the only reaction would be... WHY DIDN'T HE GO TO MOTHER BEAR'S? It also happens to be the best pizza in Bloomington.

    21-22 Men’s IUBB Schedule

    I think it's long overdue. UK is our biggest or second biggest rival depending on who you ask. I had hope Archie would work something out with Cal since they were close, but it doesn't seem like he made much of an effort. I think both programs could use a game at this point that would excite the fanbases, regardless of the team's records. Get it done Woody!

    Coach Woodson's Media Appearances

    There seem to be so many stories about Woody like this one that point to him being both honest and loyal, but most of all just a genuinely good guy that leaves everyone in his wake a better person. Regardless of how many wins or losses he gets as a coach here (and I think we’ll see a lot of wins), I know I’ll have total respect and admiration for the person that is our head coach. That’s extremely rare in college basketball, and I can’t say I’ve ever truly had that feeling about a basketball coach here at Indiana.
  6. I wonder if Roberts was the backup plan if both Fife and Lewis had declined an assistant job. It's certainly possible that Woody wanted one spot on the bench reserved for a former IU player.
  7. Let's hope it's more like 10-15 years down the road...
  8. Larry Brown Resume: Played at UNC under Dean Smith Olympic Gold Medal Champion (player) ABA Champion and 3x All Star (player) 3x ABA Coach of the Year Naismith NCAA Coach of the Year National Runner Up as UCLA coach National Champion as Kansas coach NBA Coach of the Year as Sixers coach NBA Champion as Pistons coach Coached 8 different teams to the NBA playoffs (Nuggets, Nets, Spurs, Clippers, Pacers, Sixers, Pistons, Bobcats) He is the history of basketball personified.
  9. Kenny Payne Michael Lewis Kenya Hunter If we have those three, Woodson has the best staff in the country and we should be a contender quick. Not sure how realistic Payne is now that he's in the NBA, and it sounds like there is a decent chance both Hunter and Roberts have already been retained.

    Player decisions

    Sounds like Roberts and Hunter are recruiting like there is a good chance they will keep their jobs with the new coach.
  11. Let's take a look at the collective NBA resumes of current college coaches: Leonard Hamilton: 19-63 (.232), 1 season John Calipari: 72-112 (.391), 3 seasons, no playoff appearances Fred Hoiberg: 115-155 (.426), 4 seasons, 1 playoff appearance Erik Musselman 108-138 (.439), 3 seasons, no playoff appearances Rick Pitino: 192-220 (.466), 6 seasons, 2 playoff appearances, 1 playoff series win Mike Woodson 315-365 (.463), 9 seasons, 5 playoff appearances, 3 playoff series wins We've hit the jackpot boys... I can already see the 6th banner!
  12. On the other hand, you could also say that Woodson wouldn't even consider coming back to college unless he could coach at Indiana.
  13. Trying to summarize where we are at... We are reviewing quotes from our savior Brad, and parsing out the bradcrumbs to find their real hidden meaning. Mysterious dates are being predicted for when Brad will return to our homeland... I'm sure if these dates pass, we will come up with new dates. Our eternal enemy is the main stream media, who for some reason refuse to acknowledge all of our evidence that Brad is returning. Preach on Qoosiers... #wBRADg1wga

    General New Coach News

    Can someone explain to me how Calbert is a better candidate than Woodson? Other than being a better college player, their resumes aren't even close. Woodson steadily improved the Hawks for 6 straight years, and coached the Knicks to their best season in 20 years... both as a head coach. Woodson is pretty far down on my list, but I don't understand what Cheaney offers at all.

    General New Coach News

    I think Woodson and Lewis is more realistic.
