    2024-2025 IUBB Schedule

    I know, I'm just saying knowing those are not being scheduled, it's weird not having an idea of what the non-con slate will look like

    2024-2025 IUBB Schedule

    Anyone have any insight into some non-con matchups in the works? So strange only knowing Battle 4 Atlantis at this point, with no B1G-ACC, Gavitt Games, or any previously scheduled home and homes.....

    Schertz looks like a dude I wanna have beers with. Although I’m not picky.

    Agreed - although Oats was at UB for 4 years vs. Schertz’s 3. And (out of curiosity, dove into it) UB was 13-5 and 12-6 in conference the two years before Oats took over and likely retained players / maintained continuity as he was promoted from assistant. And Schertz had a ton of turnover from Lansing’s departure if I remember correctly. Anyway, I was mainly saying his similar style could translate to the same success. But I totally hear you

    This has been said several times, but can’t get over how much I’d like Josh Schertz at IU. Sitting here watching Cincy-ISU and just feel like he could mimic Nate Oats’ success at Alabama. 63% 2PT FG (leads D-1) 80% FT (3rd in D-1) 292 3PT FGs made (leads D-1) Would take him a minute to get guys to fit his system, but the wizardry offensively reminds me so much of Oats and M*tt P*inter. Where do I sign?

    My biggest problem is we’re in just as bad of a spot whether Woody sucks this year or has a fine year and retires. A new coach will have zero foundation for the 2025-26 season given we’ve struck out in the 2024 recruiting class AND likely 2025. It would've been nice to have a new coach this coming season with foundational pieces (Gallo, Malik, Mgbako?) and the ability to potentially salvage the 2025 class. You can fix quickly in the portal, but all successful teams need a foundation.

    SMU fires coach after two years. That’s allowed?

    Woody’s new sideline gear as we spiral next season

    This will probably not be well-received... but in my mind, we have two options: 1) mid-major coach with proven success / resume (May, Schertz, etc) 2) high-major coach who doesn't have the proven success / resume, but has the traits and qualities which would lead us to believe he could and would succeed here (Shrews, etc) Option 3 of a P5 coach with proven success will never exist unless it's a very rare circumstance. Even then, I'd bet against it. The way SEC / football schools have started investing in basketball (with facilities, NIL resources, huge salary pool for HC & assistants, etc) over the last decade or so (while still having limited fanbase pressure) makes our job more and more ordinary. You don't have to love May, Schertz, or Shrewsberry. They all come with risk. But if we're gonna sit around waiting for the perfect candidate, we're gonna be stuck in neutral for a long time.

    The Godfather has arrived! Thanks for the update Jerry. Man, if Pearl really wanted to come here after a, say, S16 loss, it’d be nice if we could sit Woody down and say look, I know you want to leave the program in the best spot possible, and the best way to do that is retire and let this guy take over. Because he’s the best option we’re gonna have this year or next.

    Mike Woodson has this Bishop Chatard Trojan agreeing wholeheartedly with a Roncalli Rebel. Simply a CLEAR sign a change is needed
