I've been watching some old IU games and watched the 1979 NIT final against Purdue last night. Some observations (and keep in mind that I'm too young to actually remember any of the IU teams from the 70s -- I've just watched some old games after the fact): 1.) In any game I seem to watch, Butch Carter never seems to show much. He doesn't seem to be a great ball handler or shooter. I know he played in the NBA, and I'm a little surprised. 2.) I know Mike Woodson is considered IU royalty, but of all of the games I've seen recently, he never seems to shoot well. I would guess I've just seen the wrong games. 3.) I know that Lee Rose left Purdue and the reason was rumored to be his negative feelings towards the AD King, but he could really coach. I think that the rivalry between the 2 teams might've been even more intense if Purdue could've kept him. 4.) It was obvious from the very beginning that Randy Wittman was a baller from his Frosh year. 5.) After watching some games from the 70s, I am even more sure that the motion offense could be effective, even in the days of the shorter shot clock. Some of IU's best teams actually shot the ball pretty quickly. There would just be the need to get the ball upcourt quickly and get the motion started ASAP.
