    Welcome Coach Miller

    Take the top five coaches that you can come up with then eliminate them. With Glass as AD, there is little chance of a good pick. He is of the belief that we need top ATHLETES, not players that can exhibit some team work, stay out of trouble, etc..., As we've seen, any decent coach can put together a decent season or two based on athletes, but Until we get back to expecting excellence on AND off the court, things will never return to greatness with any longevity attached to it. Better to get a transition coach to change the culture first(I.e. Kieth Smart) and rebuild the right way.

    Welcome Coach Miller

    IU fans, don't count on a big namer. Mike Lightfoot may be tapped as a short-term transition coach. Mike is the winningest coach in NAIA history who recently announced his retirement from his 31-year coaching position in northern Indiana. Realize, the IU coaching change Is as much about getting back to fundamentals as it is winning. The walk down the floor clear-out for penetration kick for a three is FUNDAMENTALLY unsound. It lacks in rebounding opportunities, consistent scoring, and is high in turnovers. IU basketball, sad to say, is no longer a premier program as evidenced by poor attendance despite seats sold. For decades,(even the Samson years) the seats were filled with excited fans. That has not been the case over the last couple of years.

    Not saying it's him.

    Why wouldn't they? Just because they are not viewed as 'hip' or forward thinking enough? Would Cal Cheaney upset you?

    King, student tickets could be cut in half, and we'd still sell out, even with the current bunch in hopes for having tickets in the future. Student tickets are a privilege, doled out as the AD desires.

    Until the younger generation can start footing the bill, my friend, their opinion means diddly.

    Keith is a great person as well as coach, but I didn't say he was the one. Let me just say this, I don't mind being discounted, after all, none of you know me personally. However, I've been fortunate to experience IU basketball in an era and from a perspective that few have had. I am immensely grateful for that, and it is for that reason alone that I care deeply for IU basketball. I'm sorry if I have offended some of you with my posts, I have what we used to call a type "A" personality. I would just suggest that as much as things change, they stay the same and the future will play out in the future. Much of what happens is determined by the Varsity Club members, they are the jokers with the juice, and until they decide, Glass doesn't know which way to turn his head. None the less, I believe that the next Coach will be someone from the past at IU.

    Dan Dakich Show Recap - 3/6/15

    Tough to do anymore, so many well to do alums fly in from across the country and some former players have in-laws around Bloomington.

    Dan Dakich Show Recap - 3/6/15

    Ya think? Maybe that is why he has been relegated to berating the officials instead of pointing out IU standing on offense, and the lack of situational awareness by the coaching staff.

    Personally, I'm pulling for Calipari. I think a cool $20 mil would change his colors to cream and Crimson, and as much as it would drive IU fans nuts, think of how it would affect UK fans! HAHA!

    Brad Stevens will NOT be IUs next coach! Bank that!
