  1. 100% agree with everything. I'm ready to look forward to games again I'm ready to look forward to watching all games in the season. The last few years, I just simply quit watching. It became to painful and irritating to watch.
  2. Agreed. The only time I remember it working for IU was Hanner Perea and Jurkin. And look how that turned out?!
  3. At least it's not "won't be" That would make me much more nervous.
  4. I don't remember that happening after Crean left but I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong.
  5. Yes, that is a good point and probably something I would do if I were in his position.
  6. I agree. Not one press interview, article or anything. A stark contrast from when Crean was let go. My guess is that is all Archie. He is a competitor and I'm sure he is embarrassed. As much as we hated losing, I'm sure he hated it even worse. I'm more surprised we haven't heard him interviewing for any coaching vacancies.
  7. I know there is lots of hate for him in the IU community, but I will always root for him. I always liked the guy. I'm not saying he shouldn't have been fired here but I will always appreciate the dark days he weathered for this program.
  8. Yes, for sure, I know the coaching comparison isn't there. It's mainly just the momentum comparison that I was trying to relate. Although Penny was a successful coach, just not at the college or NBA level.
  9. Agree. The key is the system Woodson puts in place and whether or not it will translate to wins. If he is able to implement a successful season next year, then this program is off to the races. To me, that's where Penny Hardaway has fallen short. When he first got hired at Memphis, he had tons of momentum with a monster recruiting class. However, over the last few years, his system has not translated to any meaningful success on the court which has caused him to lose momentum with recruits. I'm optimistic that Coach Woodson has turned a corner with this program though. And as any long suffering IU fan will tell you, it's about time.
  10. He just passed away a few years back. Really sad.
  11. Connersville is a cool gym. My dad was part of that 72 Championship team.
  12. I definitely hope that he returns, but I wouldn't take too much stock in this. I remember when Archie took over after Crean was fired, OG and Blackmon participated in team activities with Archie even though both ended up leaving. Not exactly the same thing since they were going pro and not transferring, but it makes me not read too much into it.
