    New Jerseys/Alternate Jerseys

    First, probably 98% of college sports teams have player names on the back of the jerseys. So I would argue the "infatuation" is with those who don't want them on. I am one of the "old guys." I am 55 and have a son who may within a year or two be a recruited athlete. I'm not sure how Indiana would convince him they are at the forefront of NIL while also telling him his name won't even be allowed on the back of his jersey. Look, I understand the "tradition" of not having player names on jerseys. But I would argue that the "tradition" was actually just a coaching tool of one coach. Other coaches have different coaching tools. For example, Terry Hoeppner's coaching tool was to put names on the jerseys because "you play for the name on the front of the jersey and you are accountable for the name on the back." I just think with all the changes coming, for the good of the program as a whole, it's time to rethink this outdated "tradition."

    I'm all for it, and with players' names on the back.

    I'm guessing the IU-Arizona series is off the table.

    I see 3 possible ways the staff could have dealt with Joey Brunk: A: Tell him he's not welcome anymore; B: Tell him they appreciate his work ethic and leadership and they want him to stay, but they only see him getting 5-10 minutes per game and leave the decision to him; C: Lie to him and "promise" him 25-30 minutes per game, but then only play him 5-10 minutes. B is by far the best, most honest, ethical option, in my opinion. And you're saying that's what they did. I'm good with that. Further, I would argue that C is worse than A.
  9. Many people also think kids are going to leave a place they love because they aren't starting or getting a lot of minutes. Some kids have different priorities, and not everyone on a roster can start.
  10. I thought Notre Dame was originally supposed to return the 1991 game we played in South Bend and got out of it somehow. But it's been a while ago, so I could be wrong.
  11. Woodson, Fife part of strategy to connect to disenfranchised IU alumni - Indianapolis Business Journal (ibj.com) Sorry if this has been posted somewhere, I have not seen it. Excellent article.

    I'm not sure that many kids are going to stay at a school more than 1 or 2 years the way the rules are now.
  13. Smith committed to Alabama while Rosemond was an assistant coach there under Avery Johnson. When Nate Oats took over, he didn't retain Rosemond, so Smith decommitted from Alabama and eventually signed with Auburn.

    He's played for more teams than Larry Brown has coached.
