    I wonder what happens to the mutual hatred between IU and Illinannoying…..
    KS is gone and maybe EJ…do they still hate us….
    I hope Bruce Whiner stays so we can get in his head again like this year, what a baby.

    The video is even more convincing than the audio. I am giving him 3 years of no negative questions asked.

    I guess I am wondering if a head coach somewhere doesn't want to catch the fire and help him as an assistant , like O'Neil did for Olson, Slaney does for Calhoun, Dunn for Beilein. Maybe Tim Welsh ? Do we need that ?

    Are we in so much trouble actually or is it just media hype ?

    Maybe I am just missing the profiling of coaches on ITH

    I think it is more media hype than anything as it relates to the trouble IU is in. The culprit has been fired along with an assistant, self imposed sanctions have been put on the university, schollys taken, and they hire a squeaky clean coach.

    Funny but I feel we are in the best shape we have been in since several years before Knight left. I was always suspicious of KS and it turns out it was like playing russian roulette.

  • Did this guy just say everything we had to hear. I mean I his comments put him over and beyond what I expected. This is the type of guy we had to have. Tom Crean is a real class act. He deserves to be at the helm of the pinnacle of college basketball.

    I'm thinking they will hate us, mainly because they're Illinois fans.

    i wonder if Big A or the postmen will do a commentary on Greenspan. (hint hint) i would like to hear what everyone has to say about him specifically.

  • I've seen lots of reports from Illinois people calling Crean's decision “stupid”.

    I think they're just worried that Brucey Baby is headed north now.

  • I think a lot of it is hype. Indiana was a lightning rod while Knight was there, especially toward the end of his career. Since he left, there's been little to talk about, until the past two years. And then when a chink in the squeaky clean armor is shown, the media start poking it with sticks and smacking at it hoping that they can break it open. Now it's going closed with the hire of a man who does things the right way and whom a lot of people around the program are saying is a great hire. So, the media has to get in their final licks before the rent in the armor seals itself back up and becomes impervious again.

    No, I will tell you from firsthand experience working with Dakich this year…DO NOT promote him to the AD of all things. I hope he finds a job elsewhere. I'll put it that way.
