    Well that will sure stop them in their tracks from even thinking about doing anything like that again (and again, and again).

    NIL and IU

    While I understand that they want large size NIL donations ($1200 minimum for this NIL), it would be nice if they could collect smaller donations from people who don't have the where with all to "subscribe and donate that much" but just want to throw in $50-$100 to the "kitty" for their own personal satisfaction, and want nothing in return.
  5. Personally, I think Woody will try to play everybody for the cupcakes, exhibition, like you said, any blowouts. But I think he'll trim the rotation down way before March. I think the first phase will be in January and further reductions as the B1G progresses. I don't have a clue who will/won't play because I haven't seen any of them play in an actual game. I am hopeful that Logan and Anthony get some meaningful minutes on a (semi) consistent basis.

    Every time I see TJD speak, especially in the last year or so, I'm so thankful that we have a solid, sincere, classy guy who has grown into a magnificant young man now, and has taken the burden of the goals of this team on his own shoulders and owns them !! (just watched him at the media day Q&A on YT) I'm so proud of him being the "face" of IU BBall. He deserves all (and more) of the accolades he gets. He'll be one helluva man going forward. And his basketball skills aren't too bad either. Go Hoosiers! And thank you TJD.

    NIL and IU

    This sounds very interesting for Indv's and businesses to partner with a reputable organization for NIL. Hats off to TDH for bringing it to us. https://www.thedailyhoosier.com/new-hoosiers-connect-nil-collective-brings-reputable-approach-to-for-profit-space/
  8. For those of you who missed it live, here is link to Woodson's media day from earlier today.

    NIL and IU

    Been looking around for NIL contribution opportunities as an indv, but I can't locate anyone other than the HH guys that have a "collection plate" for proper NIL contributions from fans or small businesses that don't want to negotiate deals directly with student athletes. The IU marketplace thru Opendorce I thought would be one to "pool" $$$ from multiple sources, but it doesn't appear that way. Anybody got another source for indv's to contribute to the NIL acct for players?

    NIL and IU

    Love the idea. Helps student athletes keep more of what they earn.
  12. Strongly suggest you listen to the presser from Scott Dolson on the current and futre state of athletics, particularly NIL. TDH brought this to us. Thanx Mr Schuman!! https://www.thedailyhoosier.com/video-and-transcript-iu-ad-scott-dolson-on-nil-big-ten-media-deal-much-more/

    Hoosier Hysterics

    I'm not disparaging Woody's daughter at all. I'm sure she's a wonderful person because she has 2 great parents who cared and wanted the best for her for her whole life. I assume things differently from you because I dislike the "jr high" personalities of the HH guys. Their previous actions with recruits were an embarrassment...for me at least. They are about as far from "credible media" as you can get, and yet they have media credentials. At least Mike Schuman, the ITH writers (and even the interns) have far more objectivity than either of the HH guys. Pankowski's resume when we was running for Board of Trustees was a joke. Everybody has a bias. I do. You do, we all do. That's not the point. I couldn't care less about what they say or do on their podcasts, or their Twitter feeds, except for how it impacts our recruits. There is more than enough competition for recruits without these guys getting in their face, cornering them, and asking them to "blink once for yes and twice for no" on some stupid question. I care about them adhering to the rules of NIL, and not getting IU in trouble because they overstepped the boundaries. And with their "insider" access, I'm concerned they won't think things thru before they act, like they did with recruits, and some of their posts. If they adhere to the NIL guidelines then I'm all for them helping the cause. But based on what I've seen so far from them, my bet is 50/50. And when you're dealing with allocating a significant amount of cash, I think objectivity is important. If they struck individual deals with each player, then that's great. Glad to hear it. But nowhere has there been any accounting (that I've seen) on where the money is going. And yet they never miss an opportunity to ask all of us, business owners, and any other IU fan to contribute blindly to their collective. If I'm forking over money to these guys, I want to know where its going. OK...rant is over. We disagree and that's fine. It's what makes the world go round. I sincerely hope you guys are right, and I'm wrong. Time will tell.

    Hoosier Hysterics

    Like giving Woody's daughter a job? Seems to me the relationship should be arms length, because of their HH Collective and the money that flows thru there, not one of "nepatism". This is the type of stuff that while it may be legal, sure has bad optics. I also wonder who is making the decision for the allocation of cash thru the collective. I've never heard anything about a "review board" or "committee" or anything. So I have to assume that Pankowski and friend are making the decisions themselves. Also bad optics IMO.

    Hoosier Hysterics

    If they were 20 something's and not versed in "entertainment/media" I would agree 100%. But even then they were in their 40's and had success in Looniwood as producer and actor. IMO, they weren't "beginners" (my word, not yours). I think they're just ego-maniacs like most in the entertainment world in Looniwood. I don't care if they do 1000 podcasts. I don't have to listen if I don't like them. That's fine. I just don't want them making a "beginner's" mistake when it comes to NIL compliance and get the whole IU system in trouble.
