    Transfer Portal w IU Interest

    We probably don’t have enough minutes to offer compared to other teams, but I’d be interested in Ugonna Onyenso. Rim protector potential with NBA aspirations. Woody has a demonstrable track record with bigs. Let him practice every day against Ballo and hopefully develop the rest of his game.

    I’ve resigned myself to the fact our ceiling is mediocre next year. If we can’t be good, I hope next season looks like 08-09 instead of 23-24. The absolute best case scenario would be if Woody has an epiphany on the course today and retires. Second best would be Dolson leaves a box of Montecristos, a nice bottle of red, and a pink slip at the clubhouse. There’s a whole spectrum of results next year with a ceiling of “meh”(second round NCAAT blowout) to “Louisville bad.” Unfortunately some of those scenarios probably end up with Woody year 5. Worst case is Woody pulls an Andrew Luck retirement, one of the assistants get us to Dayton, and our hands are tied to hire long term.

    With our draw we could make it to Sunday. If that happens we pick up a Q2 win over PSU, and Q1 wins over Nebraska and Illinois. That puts us at 5-9 Q1, 6-4 Q2, 10-1 Q3/Q4. I think that puts us in Dayton. We would also be this year’s hotly debated example of why the committee should/shouldn’t consider conference tournament performance.

    If we hang a banner for it, maybe he’ll retire.

    Pearl’s last extension came when the Louisville job was open. I think Pearl would be the best option, but I’m worried he might just be leveraging IU for another extension at Auburn.

    Fully agree. Assembly Hall will be a ghost town next year, probably as bad as the past couple years in the Yum center. There’s no amount of ticket packages, t-shirt giveaways, or dollar hot dog nights that will pack assembly hall to watch a hopelessly bad team.

    all more productive uses of time than watching this sorry product.

    Everything looks 10x worse in slow motion. When they showed it at speed and not in slow motion, I see why Gunn reacted. It was still a dumb response, but I understand it.
  11. UCLA and USC will be an interesting case study. It will be interesting to see if they alter their style to win in conference, or if they take their lumps during the season and outperform the other B1G teams in the tourney. I’d like to think that adding 2 new teams could help shift the overall style of play. However, one of the newest teams is a major contributor to the helmet and pads style that pervades the league.

    Looking forward to the Tuesday 11PM tip-offs for UCLA/USC road games in a few years.

  14. I put $20 on UT money line in the 4th quarter at +620. I’m pissed we lost, but I’ve been an IU fan long enough to see a collapse coming. At least I can replenish the bourbon I’m about to consume trying to blot this night from my memory.
