  1. I massively endorse this hire! Armond Hill was an assistant on Doc Rivers staff with the Celtics when I worked there. Just a tremendous person and a great coach, especially in the area of working with players individually and guiding/mentoring. Love this hire. I'll repeat again, I was extremely discouraged by the Mike Woodson hire and was very vocally against it. But after cooling off and digesting it for a few days after the announcement, I came back to the board and said that what Scott Dolson was doing seemed far more strategic in terms of building a pro-style program that the top pla

  3. Starting to think Kenya Hunter was almost as big of a pickup as Mike Woodson. Early returns in recruiting have been pretty damn impressive... Hunter has to love going into a meeting with a recruit with Woodson’s NBA cred backing him up.

  5. It was an All Star game against kids who won't even be playing high level basketball in college. I wish the kid well, but he would get dominated if he played in the Big Ten. High level programs didn't offer this kid for a reason. I don't know how many times that needs to be said.

  16. I sure hope we have better things to discuss this season than a kid at some mid -level conference. I think the bar has been raised as far as the talent this staff is recruiting. This kid wouldn’t fit. Hope he has a nice career. This will probably be the last time I waste in discussions about him

  17. If Tamar Bates was from Indiana he’d be way more hyped. I think it’ll work to our/his advantage, and I couldn’t be more thrilled that he’s in an Indiana uniform.

  19. That Matta decision might be looking even better this summer. https://www.ncaa.org/about/resources/media-center/news/waiver-granted-allow-basketball-instruction-non-coaching-staff-members-summer Looks like this was really aimed at grad assistants and I think we picked up a good one there too, but man, it is going to be really terrible when Dane, Rosemund, and Hunter are on the road and we are left with...Thad freaking Matta to help run practices with Coach Woodson.

  20. His reaction to the question about the pack line defense is worth the watch for that alone. Woody won me over quickly after being named coach, and continues to impress me every time I listen to him.

  21. Sadly, as great and tight as HSN is...we have a habit of running off some good people. If I had one wish for HSN, it would be that we become a bit more accepting. If a topic or poster is not your style, then move along. But we can not just run folks off and say "they deserved it". That's one thing mile brought to this board. He defended everybody and made sure EVERYBODY felt valued and welcome. Now, back to recruiting.

  22. I was one that was very disappointed about the hire initially and pretty vocal about it, but that was when I didn't fully understand the hire. I wanted IU to hire a proven college program builder. Look at what Chris Beard did at Texas Tech or Eric Musselman at Nevada and Arkansas or what Scott Drew has done at Baylor. Guys with a proven track record of building college programs. That's what I wanted for IU. I viewed hiring Woodson as very lazy by Scott Dolson. Hiring an "IU guy" for the sake of hiring an IU guy. It just reeked of laziness to me, and I was vocal about it that first day. I

  23. Indiana fans for 4 years: "We need size and shooting..." Archie Miller: "Meh" Mike Woodson in 2 months: "Done and done." All the moves that have been made this off season really lead me to believe that the former caretakers of the program did not have a clue what they were doing here. Seriously, Woodson was here for 2 months, took a look at the roster, recognized the same deficiencies that the fanbase has been complaining about for years and goes out and addresses the issues. In 2 months. Not 4 years. 2 months. Miller was awful. That being said, welcome to Durr.

  25. The kid will get his chance in about 6 months. They usually have 2-3 power 6 opponents a year. He won’t be tested the way he would over a 30 game schedule night in and night out the same way He would playing at IU but there should be enough the next couple years to make a complete judgement. Good luck to him. Personally I am perfectly happy with the team we had. Just think…had we taken him…perhaps we don’t have a scholarship for Tamar Bates…I’m not losing any sleep.

  26. Imagine the package the coaching staff can put together. Hi I’m mike Woodson. Legend here, played in nba, know what it takes to get there, and stay there. oh that guy? That’s just Thad Matta. Oh the new player development guy? Spent 15 years in the league. Dane fife? 2002 guy. Izzo guy. Indiana guy down deep. Kenya and yasir? Deep roots all over country. the attraction is back. There’s no way this could have gone better in woodys first 2-3 months. No way.

  28. What I love most about all of this is, they are spending $$$ on coaches. These are guys who are very well connected and respected. To be honest, this situation is as good as hiring Stevens. I too and most people I knew, were not high on hiring Woodson. We were all wrong. What I wanted IU to do was build a foundation for long term success. With who they have brought in, any hand off from Woodson (hopefully after success) to his successor (Fife?) will have been working with experienced guys (Woodson, Matta, Hill, Hunter) and younger "up and comers" and everything in between (Larry Brown, CBK, Is

  29. Yes, this is HTD. I communicated with him several years ago. Good man. Going to miss everything about him. His "sheets" that he prepared and completed for the games he watched. His undying love for the Hoosiers. And most of all, his distaste for everything "Smellermaker" Rest easy Dennis. You were one of a kind and now make heaven a happier place.

  32. True story about the name Noah. Little Keet’s name is Noah. When my wife was pregnant with him, and we knew he was a boy and we werealready calling him by name, we were at the game when Noah Vonleh was visiting. The crowd started chanting, “We want Noah.” My wife grabbed my hand and put it on her stomach. While the chant was going on, Little Keet was going bonkers.

  38. He’ll definitely coach again and will absolutely be a P5 coach. His main flaw at IU was recruiting Dayton-type players to IU. The IU job has a short-leash compared to many other schools. He’ll be back. I really think a 180 was pulled on him in the end. There were reports of him leaving the year-end meetings with Dolson/Admins as being encouraged about having another year. Then, one or two days later, he’s fired. He knows basketball. He didn’t get to IU on accident. The IU experience was a big lesson for him and he’ll adjust going forward … both in recruiting and go

  39. A woman was shopping at her local supermarket, where she selected: a half-gallon of 2% milk, a carton of eggs, a quart of orange juice, a head of romaine lettuce, a 2 lb. can of coffee, and a 1 lb. package of bacon. As she was unloading her items on the conveyor belt to check out, a drunk standing behind her watched as she placed the items in front of the cashier. While the cashier was ringing up her purchases, the drunk calmly stated, "You must be single." The woman was a bit startled by this proclamation, but she was intrigued by the derelict's intuition,

  40. Meh, don't play that PC bs with me. The kid got a chance, that is a helluva lot more than most in the same situation. I ain't gonna cry over someone winning the lottery only to piss it away. The kid f'ed up. Pure and simple. What the hell was he doing with 3 1/2 pounds of it? Bad upbringing? Just a casual user? What would this board's reaction be if say TJD got caught with that amount?

  42. I don't find your post offensive, but I do find it to be a fairly inaccurate representation of this board. IMO, this is one of the top message boards around for chatting IU sports and allowing various view points in a respectful manner. Are you going to be challenged when presenting a viewpoint at times? Absolutely. But if you don't want to be challenged (I don't mean you specifically, just the general "you") then why post on a message board in the first place? People have opinions and they want to present them and debate them. That's why we're here. I see very little arguing for t
