Frankly, no, I don’t think he would. If you think the Indiana name resonates with kids born between 2003-2005, then you’re wrong. It doesn’t. Nba experience and one of the B1G’s best coaches in the last quarter century does though. 
 

edit: I’d be ecstatic for Lewis to join the staff and potentially replace Woody down the road. Love Lewis. Just think this gets the train rolling faster. 

I think cheaney for recruits and Lewis for associate HC would be fantastic. Or instead of cheaney, zeke. Just dont let him coach that much lol

I'm not saying Woodson isn't a good coach but what do you think makes him a good coach? I don't follow the NBA at all anymore. Haven't really in 10-15 years. All I know of Woodson is that he was a great player at IU. Don't really know anything about his coaching style or personality. 

He improved the Hawks each year he was coach and too them to the playoffs. He’s the last Knicks coach to get them to the playoffs. I’m not saying he’s Phil Jackson. But you don’t spend that long in the NBA if you aren’t a good coach.

I'm good with another IU guy on the bench but I don't think the entire bench should be made up of IU guys.  I definitely would like to see Hunter retained because of his recruiting connections to the east coast.  A  number of our outstanding offers under Archie were a result of Hunter's connections.

A guy with NO NCAA coaching or recruiting history and a mediocre NBA coaching record that would not get ANY look if he wasn't an "IU guy" is not a better choice than the field. Period. Gimme Lewis. Gimme that D-2 guy... No freaking way. 

Pull over, your slow lane is over there. :92:

FYI, you may still get Lewis or a Fife on staff. Let it play out.

Honestly forgot about Hunter. He should stay and would definitely help on recruiting side

No. Everyone from before needs to move on. 

 Hunter only came in at the end. But I'm certainly not opposed to letting Hunter go if you get somebody better at recruiting to replace him. He just seems like he has plenty of influence on the east coast, which definitely cant hurt

Dakich makes substantially more money doing what he’s doing. I know it’s a joke, but I figured I’d chime in anyway.

Did he get a raise?  Last I knew he only made $200k for both his radio and tv gig.  Or do we pay our assistants that poorly?  I truly don’t know but it’s going to be important with Woody.

He makes enough money to live in the nicest place in Indy on Geist Reservoir

Loved Calbert as a player but we don’t need an ambassador but a grinder on the recruiting side and someone willing to put in time for player development. Not sure Cal even wants to live in Bloomington

Is this similar to saying a woman working at McDonalds is the hottest girl working at that particular McDonalds?  It’s a home on a reservoir in Indiana man lol.  I have no idea why my statement responding to what Wayne said led you here, but I am moving on.

So I have heard it in a few places now, but does anyone have the scoop on the potential that Archie didn't even want the job at IU when he was hired?

Bozich and his dad said that on Assembly Call. It sure looked like it but I'm not sure I buy it. IF it's true, that is on Fred Glass for not doing his due diligence.
