He interviewed Woodson yesterday. Its not just a name being thrown around.

I'm not doubting what you were told or that he interviewed. Now we are hearing chatter about Matta. Like @BobSaccamannostated above, I think he is just interviewing those who are available until some of the other coaches are out of the tourney.

Sorry I was golfing this afternoon.  In the words of our late friend.  “The winds have shifted away from Woodson and onto a former big ten coach.”  I see some have already figured that out!

Which is fine with me as long as his health is ok.

Thank God.  Couldn't imagine a more underwhelming hire than going with Mike Woodson.

I have no doubt Woodson is a fine leader of men. I'm glad he got an interview. He is an NBA lifer, however who's 63 however.

It sounds like he is healthy right now or stable. I didn’t realize he has been absent since 2017. I also am astonished he is only 53.

So many people don't realize how young Matta is. With his experience in the Big Ten and his prowess in Indiana, he'd be a great hire IMO

I hope it’s a situation that IF we wanted Stevens first and the boosters were sold on a plan of “Stevens is almost a certainty, but if not we have Coach B ready” that that “Coach B” is already set and we are waiting for them or something and all the rest of this chatter is just buying time.

That depends.  Are you getting 2010 Thad Matta or 2017 Thad Matta?  There's a huge difference.

I would love to get Matta if he is totally heathy and ready to get back into coaching.  He was always one of the coaches I wanted at IU when he was at Xavier.

Let’s say it is indeed Matta, wouldn’t we be able to know that for sure before the tournament ended since he isn’t coaching? I could also see Dolson being sneaky, making people think “oh it must be someone coaching in the tournament” and not announce it until after its over making people think it is, and then ends up not being at all.

What would be the benefit of that if your coach is ready to go?

I think right now we are just hearing guys who will be interviewed and we will probably interview coaches who are still in the tournament.  right now we can interview Matta since he is not working at this time.
