    2021 Transfer Portal

    Well before Miller was fired, I had heard something along the lines of Miller himself rarely if ever directly coached players, and that it was all delegated to assistants. And if Miller had specific instructions for players, it was relayed through an assistant who would then talk to a player. Which I think is even worse than grad assistants being tasked with skills development, but fits with this sort of delegating down mentality

    Player decisions

    I remember towards the end of the season seeing a short video of Leal and Lander after a game at AH on either end of the court taking 3 pointers, and both hit like 10 in a row. The guys on the team can shoot, they just need confidence to translate it to a game.

    If a SR is taking an extra COVID year, and is staying at the same school, they don't count against the scholarship limits so schools aren't forced to pull other committed scholarships

    Although, I feel like Armaan is likely getting courted much harder and by a lot more schools, which might be harder to ignore.

    Yeah, to me it seemed like he was on a really tight lease with 3 point attempts, which seemed to mostly come before the first media timeout. Maybe he didn't have the confidence in his shot once he started getting a little fatigued, or very likely he was flat out told not to take them as the game went on. With some of TJD's comments, it really feels like Archie micromanaged in the manner and expected players to stick to narrowly defined roles

    Assistant Coach Thread

    And reading the tea leaves, the DOBO for the last 4 seasons, Brian Walsh (came with Archie from Dayton) is no longer listed as a staff member on the roster/coaching staff page. Not sure when he was removed (right when Woodson was added or maybe just in the last few days), but it might indicate that IU has a plan to replace him (Roberts)

    Assistant Coach Thread

    Which is why I don't think Roberts is going to be the 3rd assistant - it would have been announced already. Also, if the plan is to keep him on in another capacity (DOBO?), I think announcing that now could prevent him from having any contact with recruits and potential transfers. Also, its certainly possible that Woody could be targeting some NBA assistants, which might need to be wait until after the season to be announced. In which case, keeping Roberts on as sort of an interim assistant makes a lot of sense. Also, I'm sure that Roberts is free to leave for another job if he'd want to, but that IU could making it worth his while to take a demotion, at least this year while their is a lot of transition. I could see if him keeping his current salary if moved to DOBO

    Assistant Coach Thread

    Maybe a plausible reason for the delay in announcing the last assistant - maybe Roberts has been the primary contact for a couple players in the portal, and we don’t want to move him to a nonrecruiting position until after they commit or we fill all roster so he can keep communicating with those guys.

    Nope, that's 13 plus Brunk

    13 but Brunk does count towards the limit - SR taking additional COVID year without transferring

    Player decisions

    Truthfully, I wouldn't get too tied up in Woody's stated preference for a 4-1 offensive scheme. The 4-1 scheme is something that IU will certainly work towards, especially with recruiting, and we will probably see at least some elements of it this year, but Woody wants to win now will put the best lineups on the floor, regardless of scheme. So if Race does come back, we could see a lot of Race and TJD at the same time if that's one of IU's better lineups Plus, Race does have a decent outside shot, so we could probably run some hybrid of a 4-1 (3.5-1.5 :) ) with Race playing a little more outside than we are used to seeing, especially if his shooting continues to improve

    With Minnesota (his most likely transfer spot) being in some disarray with an underwhelming HC hire and a several transfers, it probably puts IU back in the running, especially with all of IU's returnees and now a big transfer in XJ
