    Fire Coach Woodson Thread

    As opposed to all the other threads that are solving world problems?

    I think you meant bullish!

    Fire Coach Woodson Thread

    I think most people understand how powerful that is and are excited by the prospect of what a good/great coach could do with that pot of money. I know the Archie comparisons are driven by what has been discussed in the thread, but ultimately they aren't that relevant. Purely as a coach, I would say Woodson is squarely below average for the Power 5 level. Woody obviously will get a chance to prove what he can do this year with this squad. I'm not optimistic we will meet expectations (top 15-20 team, commensurate with where most early preseason rankings have us), but we'll see.

    I also feel like he better be worth it, or I'm guessing his teammates aren't going to be too happy they're making a fraction of what he is. I can't imagine UW's NIL is $5M+.

    Fire Coach Woodson Thread

    Our NIL pool is much larger than most other schools, that is literally an objective fact. I'm not saying Archie was a better coach, but Woodson has an advantage there that Archie didn't have. That is not debatable.

    Haha probably because he looks like him?

    Just curious why you think Newton needs to play? If Carlyle comes, I think the top 7 would be Oumar, Malik, MM, Bryson Tucker, TG, Rice, and Carlyle. I also think Cupps would generally get some minutes as a backup PG and Leal as well will see some time because he brings shooting to the table. Obviously, Newton is a major unknown, and I could be totally wrong, but not sure I see him getting much run.

    I don't disagree with that, there are likely some that may come in large part due to Woodson. I just think it will be hard to say Woodson is "landing guys" when we are the highest bidder.

    It was a little over top that people felt we weren't going to get any portal players. The simple reality is that we're going to be the best offer for a lot of these kids. So I'm not sure how much credit Woodson should get when we land them. I'm not saying no credit, but I also doubt many of these kids will be coming because he is the coach.

    Eat crow about his ability to get portal players or eat crow about his ability to be successful here?

    Ummm no, it showed the gap between Purdue and one of the most dominant teams in NCAA tournament history.

    I don't think it's particularly close. ESPN is projecting them as #4 next season without projecting them to have a single returning starter.
