On April 28th, Jerod had the opportunity to chat with Steve Green, Bob Knight’s first recruit and a member of the vaunted 1975 team.
If you’ve ever heard an interview with Steve, you know that he is gregarious, high-energy, and very engaging. He certainly did not disappoint in this conversation.
We cover a wide variety of topics:
• What he and Brian Evans are up to with Arora Sleep.
• The connection he made with Branch McCracken before ever meeting Bob Knight.
• How the 1976 team has welcomed he and John Laskowski as one of their own, even though they graduated in 1975.
• The story of his first technical foul, and why it was extra hypocritical for Bob Knight to chew him out that day.
• His IU recruiting story.
• His thoughts on why Mike Woodson will be such a good fit at IU
• How he would fix IU’s program-wide shooting woes.
• The advice he would give to an incoming freshman.
And so much more. It’s a wide-ranging, fun conversation that I think you’ll really enjoy.
