Matta on the staff?

 

So we have a guy who has never coached college basketball or recruited

and a guy who can barely walk up stairs AND hasn't coached or recruited in 4 calendar years.......

Bring a new meaning to “Hurryin Hoosiers”,

As a teenager?  Or when he was an adult 
Well he was a teenager when he was a rookie in the NBA

If I remember right, Goodman wasn't all that impressed when UM hired Howard.

I'm optimistic about this, could Woodson fail, of course, but many people's initial reaction to Archie was positive and look how that turned out.  At least Woodson knows IU basketball and cares about this program.  Matta in the fold is a definite plus.  I'll be curios to see how his staff shakes out, he is obviously connected to some great former NBA players that could be added to the staff.  Although I expect at least one other former IU player on staff.

Goodman two years ago:  Juwan Howard will fail!

Goodman now:  Mike Woodson is no Juwan Howard!

Using those two first takes, Mike Woodson will not fail.

Did Lander put in his name in the portal before or after being informed of the decision of HC Woodsen?

 

Don't know for sure, because I'm not sure the hire was discussed with the players before it was announced, but going off that, it appears that Khristian did indeed enter the portal before he knew...

Woody's first visit to the town coffee shop (can't say barbershop -- dude's bald). 

Old-time client: "I don't have a hair of a notion as to why we hired someone who's been in the pros for the past 10 years. The main point here is we don't get Armaan Franklin back playin' ball, we don't have a prayer. He switches over to Purdue, we're in big trouble." 

Woody: "Gentlemen, it's been real nice talkin' to ya. Good night."
