    Practice differences under Woody

    After a busy spring and a 5 month break on here I am back and ready to go for the season! I will be there in person on November 9th for Woody's debut. I was unfortunately present for Archie's so I hope this one goes better. I'm holding off on crazy expectations this year. However, I do think the culture is changing. The Bahamas trip was a pretty good idea.

    2021 Minutes Per Game

    Update after the Michael Durr commitment. 1. TJD 2. Johnson 3. Stewart 4. Kopp 5. Geronimo 6. Bates 7. Phinisee 8. Durr 9. Lander 10. Thompson- Side note...I'm glad Race is coming back but I am stunned he didn't transfer. I think his role will be similar to his role in 19-20..13mpg 11. Galloway 12. Leal 13. Duncomb- Hoping IU redshirts him. Don't get me wrong, he's a solid player but I don't think he sees much playing time this year unless there is a major frontcourt injury. TJD and Durr ahead of him at the 5. Race can play small ball 5. I wish IU would redshirt players more often. I think it's good. I would rather get four major impact years from Logan than 3 major impact years. Just don't think he sees more than 5 or so minutes a game. Bottom line..I'm pretty certain the top 6 will be accurate. I think spots 7-10 will be game by game and situation by situation. Lander may see close to 20 minutes one game and maybe 5-10 the next. A lot will depend on practice too. This is a good problem to have.
  3. Surprised we got him. I personally love it. Every team needs frontcourt depth. So far IU has TJD, Race, Durr, and Duncomb. Geronimo will see time at the 4. Kopp at times too. I don't think Michael will play the same role he had at USF. I'm thinking he will be the first big man off the bench, around 15 MPG. Really interested in seeing Race's role. He is the wild card to me. I'm not sure what his role will be.

    It does feel weird but when you look at the overall talent on the team, I don't think Rob and Race are playing starting caliber minutes. I know a lot of you dislike him, but Dakich always said that outside of TJD and Franklin, nobody else on IU's roster last year would start on most B1G teams. Lander has to improve dramatically to get more minutes. I see improvement, but he has a loooooong way to go. I think what gets me excited about this year is there are proven veteran additions coming in that will play big minutes (Johnson, Kopp, and Stewart). Getting a borderline 5 start player also is pretty nice. I think some games Bates may start if IU wants to go small. It all depends on the matchup and that is how it should be.

    haha I am a Dallas fan...there were always these rumors about Earl Thomas going to Dallas. I think Keion is our ET!

    IUBB 2021 General Off-Season Thread

    Right now I feel these will be the two best lineups for IU Option 1 Johnson/Bates/Stewart/Kopp/TJD Option 2 Johnson/Stewart or Bates/Kopp/Geronimo/TJD This is based on the current roster as we speak. I'm not taking into account major improvement (ex: Race's shooting ability or Lander overall as a player) It's obvious they will add another player who could potentially play a lot. I'm trying not to think of a "starting lineup" but more so of rotations that work. I think we may see different lineups from game to game (which is good IMO).

    Not too surprising...clearly they are going after someone else. On another note, that '18 class is probably the most disappointing since "The Movement".

    2021 Transfer Portal

    I think as soon as CJ Fredrick transfers to UK, this happens. They don't play the same position but that probably bumps Keion to the bench at UK. I have a feeling they start Oscar and the freshman Collins at the 4 and 5 spots. Keion I think would be a very a good addition. He's not as bad as some think . He would start obviously. I'm just not on high on him as I was two years ago. Hypothetically looking at the depth chart if this happens, minute wise this would hurt Hunter but I think in a way it hurts Lander's minutes too. Think the lineup would be Johnson, Stewart, Kopp, Brooks, TJD. Rob and Bates IMO are the top two guards off the bench. I think Lander is really going to be on himself this offseason and get better.

    Next Season’s Expectations

    My crack at the rotation. Asterisk means they can handle the ball and play the 1. 1: Johnson (can play the 2)/Lander 2: Bates*/Phinisee*/Leal (can play the 3) 3: Stewart* (can play the 2)/Geronimo (Can play the 4)/Galloway (can play the 2) 4: Kopp (can play the 3)/Hunter (can play the 3) 5: Jackson-Davis/Thompson/Duncomb I think what makes this team go from really good to elite is if Trayce or Race can play the 4 and hit the three ball. I think Johnson, Bates, Stewart, Kopp, and Jackson-Davis see the most minutes with Rob and Race not too far behind. The rest of the minutes left will be up for competition I think. One game Lander may see 20 minutes and maybe 10 the next game. Duncomb may see big minutes if our bigs get into foul trouble. Really like this team. Starting to think this is a second weekend NCAA Tournament team. I think the key with this team is minutes. Not necessarily who starts but who is in the game when it matters most.

    Next Year’s Roster

    Our house is rough when UK loses haha. When they lost to UE a few years ago and Auburn in the Elite 8...woof. Thankfully she pretty much gave up hope in December this year and we didn't have to watch them. Unfortunately IU wasn't much better.

    Next Year’s Roster

    Haven't been as active on here the last few days. Wife and I welcomed our baby girl into this world this morning! I am super pumped about the addition of Tamar and Miller. I think both have a massive impact on the team next year. Tamar is a steal. I think he can be this teams best player in a few seasons. Miller is the kind of player IU has needed lately. I'll see how the dominoes fall in the B1G but I really do think IU has a chance next year to be very good. I think for now the IU news is going to slow down. I have a big recruiting battle of my own-my wife is a UK fan. Going to have to convince by daughter to root for IU!!!

    Next Season’s Expectations

    Hoosier Hysteria is how many days away? Seriously going to be fun. Don’t want to get too crazy but this feels like a top 20 team right now. Ceiling is high for this team. My lineup right now: Johnson Bates Stewart Kopp Jackson-Davis Rob and Race first off the bench. Minutes will be a dog fight after that. Love it.
  14. Wouldn’t worry about that. Baylor played small ball. Vital was their four and he’s 6’5ish I think. Eventually Woodson will get a roster full of 6’6 to 6’8 guys at the 3 and 4 spots.

    (2021) SG Tamar Bates to INDIANA

    Wow! I did not expect this. Massive get for Woodson and the staff. I would not fall out of my chair if this kid starts next year. He will see quality minutes right away.
