    Also, can 2021 signees use the one-time transfer rule if they wish to get out of an official commitment, or do you need to have played a year first? In the olden days you'd have to sit out a year if a school didn't release you from a signed commitment, but it's possible guys could burn that one-time instant transfer waiver to recommit elsewhere if they wanted to.

    Did Aminu Mohammed sign with Georgetown? He'd also fit Woodson's style defensively and as a slashing style wing.

    One possible hypothesis: Brooks would like to transfer to IU, but if not will stay at UK. However, the IU staff is waiting to hear back from a bigger target first before offering Brooks.

    2021 Transfer Portal

    If Woodson wants to add some length on the wing, a few names in the portal that I don't think have been mentioned yet would be: Timmy Allen (Utah), Matt Bradley (UC-Berkeley), and Micah Peavy (Texas Tech). No idea if IU has any connections to any of the three, but they would all upgrade the roster IMO.

    It sounds like Rosemond was let go from Alabama a couple years ago along with Avery Johnson. What's he been up to since?

    Player decisions

    I know I keep saying it, but to me Race is athletic enough to play the 4 in Woodson's scheme. He can guard at least 3-5, and some 2s as well on a switch. And he was reputed to have good range on his shot, although we haven't seen it much since he arrived. I think he'd be a more effective 4 against a number of B1G teams in 2021-22 than would Geronimo or Brooks.

    Or you could mix some 5*s in with the 3* and 4* players, and coach the elite talent up too.

    May have missed it, but is there any chance IU is involved with Justin Powell? Would seem to check a lot of boxes...
  9. Ha! I'd actually say that cautiously pessimistic is where I'm at right now with the hire!

    Player decisions

    I actually think he'd fit pretty well. He's athletic enough to often be able to guard 2-5 in a switch. He also was reputed to have a decent 3 point stroke coming in. Admittedly he only hit 30% last year and 20% this year, but everyone's shooting suffered under Archie so it's not inconceivable he could be in the 34-35% range next year.
  11. No, Oats is the truth. He's going to win at least one national title, maybe more.
  12. I feel like we should have a pretty good sense of how this is likely to work out pretty quickly. Between the current transfer frenzy and the '22 class committing in the fall, we should see how the recruiting materializes pretty soon. I have no doubt Woodson can develop and coach, so he'll live or die by his recruiting success. If the '21 and '22 classes are duds, we're in trouble. If they are top 10-20, watch out.
  13. So to update this morning's post, in 9 days we went from the BradTrain to the MussBus to the MoserMoped, before hitching a ride on the WoodsonWagon.
  14. This is where I'm at. Woodson clearly knows the game and how to win from an Xs and Os standpoint. The question is just whether he can parlay his NBA connections to recruit at a sufficient level to win here. If he can come in recruiting at even 80% of the level Penny Hardaway did at Memphis, he'll do fine. That having been said, this isn't the hire I would have made. Gives me strong Ewing to Georgetown vibes.
  15. I wonder if Woodson and Matta know each other. Seems like a lot of opportunity for disagreement in terms of coaching style, players to target, etc.
