    I’m stepping outside now to go look for a brick wall to run through for coach.

    What I find most appealing about CTC, as a coach myself, is the mixture of true substance and passion. There are plenty of “fire and brimstone” coaches out there, but most think passion alone is enough. CTC gets the game and most importantly, the people side of the game – same thing that made Knight so succesful early on. He gets that success in anything you do (grades, athletics, tildeliewinks, etc) transfers to everything you do. We are a lucky institution to have CTC.

    What a speech…….in 2009 when Purdue had Hummel, Moore, and Johnson healthy, and we were a Verdell three away from knocking them off with a team full of freshman and DIII talent (Bawa actually played in that one) I kept thinking throughout the game..”How are we staying with this team?” Now I can see how….Crean had those guys so jacked up they woulda believed the could beat the Jordan led Dream Team

    I truly beleive that CTC is heading for greatness. I think before its all said and done his name will be mentioned with Knight, Coach K, Dean Smith, and Wooden. He has a way of motivating that few people do. Its rare. We havent seen anything yet. Next years when the big time winning and national exposure will begin and hell be able to compete with ANYBODY for any recruit he wants. IU will have a steady stream of talent heading to the NBA and thats what lands top recruits. Were in for possibly the best stretch of basketball ever at Indiana and thats saying alot. Sit back and enjoy folks this is gonna be fun.

    I hope the next person at the podium brought a handkerchief to mop up all that spit flying out of CTC’s mouth!

    It’s probably a mistake to do so, but I’ve been trying to parse CTC’s remarks to try to figure out how the scholarship crunch is going to play out. I found his statements in this video about PJ, HMP, and RP along with other recent statements referring to our 8 frosh/sophs to be somewhat interesting.

    I haven’t been so ready for a season to come this early in 20 years.
