    No. We still have Chris007 for info

    Ed Schilling leaving

    It’s an equally odd time to fire somebody. Unless he did something very bad. Can’t just be lackluster results.

    Could Ed have told this kid he had an offer after Archie said he wasn’t interested?

    Ed Schilling leaving

    Tom Crean could really fix our broken offense. Edit We really just need a good shooting coach if we could have hit just 35% of our 3s our offense would have been fine.

    A good statement for a lot going on right

    Ed Schilling leaving

    Yep agreed. Timing makes it look less than mutual and more like Schilling wanted off a sinking ship. He probably was trying to find a coaching job for better optics and couldn’t get it. Then again Schilling wasn’t the guy on Romeo when Romeo said that IU started to lead. And without getting Brooks. Gotta wonder. He has connections but with two years in state Ostrom and Archie have them now as well Our guard development outside of Al has been trash so gotta wonder how invested Ed was since that was supposed to be his forte. UCLA fans weren’t exactly upset when he left although look what happened to the bruins Need to hire a former player that can teach shooting.

    Nobody is saying fire Archie after 2 years. Recognizing Archie is in troubled waters and not making excuses for him is not the same as calling for him to be fired And point of fact Kentucky fired a guy because he wasn’t the guy in year 2. And our golden goose just chose to go set on their bench rather than start for us.

    Your saying making the tourney last year was not valid? 2 years in is more than enough time for tons of other coaches to make the tourney. But for Archie it’s unreasonable to expect it. Holtmann made tourney year 1 at his last two stops I believe Chris Mack made tourney year 1 at his last two stops I believe Chris Beard made tourney year 2 Will Wade year 2 Cal made it year 1 Greg Gard year 1 God knows how many more. Like I said. People want success but aren’t willing to handle mediocrity appropriately Archie Lost the initiative when he failed to stop the bleeding during the 1-12 streak. We went from swimming with the current to swimming against it. And now we are going into year 3 with 1 option at PG. Two years is more than enough time to identify red flags in the coaching. Recruiting has already stalled. Another bad year and it’s going to be impossible. Failure is a self sustaining situation in college athletics.

    Yeah it’s never been a secret.

    True. If this season is a disappointment we can either send a lame duck or a new coach that brings a lot of excitement. Not a hard choice. That being said I don’t think the standards of expectations are in place to get less than 4 years. Maybe even 5.

    Patience can lead to success. CAN. People ignoring the giant red flags we are seeing act like it WILL. Apparently expecting a guy who makes 3 million a year to make the tourney is throwing a tantrum.

    IU Trustee Election

    Who hires the compliance department? I imagine the board of trustees has some control over that.

    Him needing the same amount of time as Crean to get going is a huge red flag in and of itself.

    IU Trustee Election

    I totally agree but I think a more significant change needs to be changing the compliance department from a self police force to more of a protection detail. They need to be helping the teams be compliant not trying to catch them cheating.

    There seems to be a pretty sizable chunk of the fan base ready to give him a pass on this next year. We lost our two best players I think is the logic there. I disagree but whatever. Our fanbase is surreal we crave success but are ridiculously patient with mediocrity
