    This is dumb as shit. Why not just hire a coach who knows what he's doing ?

    This kinda looks like an all hands on deck to save the program. If they are paying Matta enough, he might stick around for 5-7 years until Woodson retires and then replace him. Or keeping Matta close if an NBA offer interests Woodson.

    RJ doing gymnastics to defend his position.

    Clearly they really wanted Matta but he’s unable to physically coach so they’re paying him to sit behind a desk

    So much filler. Get on with the games

    Gotta wonder how much we offered him to be an Associate AD.

    "After a report surfaced on Monday night that the former Ohio State coach was set to become the new leader of the Hoosiers before the deal has fell through on a health screening, multiple media outlets are now saying that original story is not true."

    If Matta is not well enough to coach now, he won’t be in 5-7 years. If he was well enough to coach now, I doubt he’d agree to be Plan B if Woodson goes to the pros.

    Totally agree. If he was healthy and wanted to coach...he would be the coach.

    READING IS FUNDAMENTAL....Read the SI qutoe:

    The story about his health ISN'T true.

  11. #311
    Yeah, “multiple media outlets” have never been wrong once in the history of the world. Doesn’t this arrangement make it obvious that they wanted Matta and the health issues are a problem?

  12. #312
    pretty interesting strategy by indiana, i wonder if it will be emulated by other schools. i’m sure there are plenty of guys like matta who aren’t able to handle a full time coaching job but can still be used for high leverage type stuff in conjunction with a full time coach who is good at dealing with players.

  13. #313
    if the story about Matta's health is not true, then IU should have hired Matta to coach the basketball team, because he's a better college coach (when healthy) than Mike Woodson will be

    Maybe that guy who had been turning down head coaching jobs for years doesn’t want to be a head coach.

    He doesn’t have to fail a health screening to know he’s not healthy enough to coach. In fact I doubt he’d agree to a physical if he already knew this. So sure, the SI report might be accurate and it wouldn’t necessarily change anything.

    It’s weird Matta would talks this role. RJ said he would have coached at Wake but for COVID

    I would think Matta is beyond the odds on favorite at IU. Fucking Covid!

    Beilein may be too old.

    Just like Wake's job, I think IU's may be Matta's to take or leave.

    Kelsey 15/1 (if he wins an NCAA game or 20-1 if he doesn't)
    HOF Wes 25-1 (unless he wins in The NCAAT, then 12-1)

    Believe it or not Moser is only one year younger than Matta.

    If something crazy happens in Boston over the next days or if IU wants to offer Stevens $100M/10 years, these odds could change.

    What were the odds on Woodson?

    It's not about the x's and o's, it's all about the Jimmies and Joes. Woodson is an answer to an image problem that has plagued IU recruiting for years. It's past time to move beyond Bobby Knight and past glory. Woodson addresses this problem.

    How? He played for Knight in the glory days.

    Reading IS fundamental. It does not say which part is not true. You're just unable to read anything through a lense that doesn't reinforce your own bullshit.
