  1. Bates has that swagger and shows flashes of skill. It would be awesome if IU have guys like him, the new kids coming in, JG and X running th fast break.
  2. Too me, defense is not there yet. I use yet, because kid can grow. He gots lost and feet tangled with dribble drives, back door cuts, Princeton type of cuts, etc. Might need a chance, might need to improve. Got to think coaches would of tried him at the 3 the past few years if he can guard it at the present time.
  3. It was mentioned in post game interviews he is preparing JG to take his spot. Him and Trayce and JG I think have mentioned it. Race is a kid who reclassified to come here early, and he was as tough as nails, while growing his game. It will be fun to see him stay, and also follow his career.
  4. For sure, my only guess-work is that Kopp was being asked to do things beyond his role. He has never been a ball in hands type of player who creates. He is a very good basketball player who leads a team. Put together 2 more on the perimeter that can create, he has a role that is better for him, catch and shoot.
  5. Kopp has a place on this team. He brought an edge along with X this year that was needed. When he first transferred, the talk from him and Woodson was one year. Things have changed, maybe. Not sure, just guessing. However, he brings a toughness and a threat from the outside. Like any player, the offseason is important, and if we have tripple threat guards/wings added, he can have terrific value.
  6. Heard back from some of my sources, who I did not reach out to after the breaking the news. Kind of keep my info to my own observations and what I read and hear into it is appropriate to learn more. Going to not go into too much detail. I'll keep it to this: Fife would share what Rabby posted with anyone that would listen himself. This included people helping him in Bloomington. The players also had feedback and it is a time where civil discourse is more important than ever no matter what your beleifs are......... This apparently was not a secret. To me, in Chicago, reading message boards as an IU basketball fanatic, I didn’t want to beleive anything was wrong and IU basketball was back to a perfect story. You can see by the Walsh hire - this isn’t about Mike Woodson, it is about players, recruiting, and moving the program forward in an environment where all should feel a sense of belonging. Hopefully all learn from this.
  7. I know the Covid year has created a different scenario. Kind of sad that kids won't finish careers at their schools. Rob is a Hoosier, should always be thought of as a Hoosier. Played 4 years here and used all eligibility. Hopefully that is not forgoten with wearing a uniform somewhere else.
  8. Hopefully both come back. Got to think a full offseason with this staff will do wonders. The NBA develops players, that is what they do. Mike Woodson develops players and most development comes in the offseason. Now, it will be interesting to see the plan in place for growth. Both of these players showed growth this season. Would love to see how pieces fall in place.
  9. Whats amazing, if that shot didn't fall and this was IU, everyone would be yelling no offense, need movement
  10. Had a chance to listen to HH live space during my commute. Johnny Jagger was on - I suggest listening. Also mentioned Seltzer to follow Miller for a coaching position. There were stuff that happened and Dane did not do himself any good to stay. Got to trust Woodson as he knows what he needs. Like the Adams rumor on another board. Also, would love to see a call in to Scott May's son who is an assistant with a program on the east coast there is definitely a connection there.
  11. Its interesting we have had former hoosiers that have left, usually on their own terms. The fact they took Fife off recruiting tells alot. Recent hoosiers that left IU as assistants: Calbert and Jim Thomas, Mike Roberts.....anyone else? Left because of IU decision: Fife, Dakitch
  12. Max Christie was recruited by Tom Izzo, seen Izzo at games. Fife was involved, but Izzo went all in for him.
  13. This I could say I have heard him on the radio say he wanted the head coaching gig and went for it. He also said he hopes to get it in the future. After reading a bunch and not believing the rumors when first started......they all connect. Its the recruiting, politics, NIL etc. I texted some AAU connections in Chicago, have not heard back. But, it all aligns now. I didn't want to beleive it because Fife was a figure on our last championship team.
  14. Okay, so I was 100% wrong on this one. I guess, I'm more disappointed in Dane that he would "leak" information. I'm sure he will get a good job, but thatis not a trustworthy thing to do in this profession. Interesting with some of the rumors Dolson hired Fife before Woody had a chance to. I willnow beleive in some of the rumors, even if they don't make sense to me.ha!
  15. JG said on HH podcast the coaches are real tight and always talking and giving feedback to Coach. There IS probably going to be turnover which happens to most staffs and Coach probably has more of an idea for a needs. It would be natural no matter what the situation is/was.
