    Wait, what? Can you elaborate?

    Oh I completely Agree. However, I do think that I would rather have had him for 9 years than Crean.

    I've heard it Rick P, Alford, and now Beilein. Honestly would rather have Rick P or Alford over Crean. Even if Rick P had to be fired, and lets say we had to do a major rebuild where we missed the tournament for 3 years.... Oh wait, that's what happened with Crean.

    If you listen to the whole podcast you may be worried about the program in general. It was eye opening on how bad the administration is Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    https://247sports.com/college/indiana/Article/Indiana-basketball-Hoosier-Hysterics-Podcast-Brian-Snow-130178176/ Has anyone else listened to this? Pretty eye opening about the Crean era. Especially considering the Kyrie Irving recruiting story. So that was in 2009, if you're Fred Glass and know these inside stories in 2009, how do you justify the extension? I just can't believe it. At about the hour mark they speak about how the program was in the stone age when Archie was hired. It made it seem that the Administration is just clueless. Really good insight for someone like me, who doesn't know the intricacies of travel before games and things like that.

    I would pay top dollar if someone could recreate this design on a shirt, but change the faces to McRObbie, Glass, and Shoulders.

    I've heard that Izzo, Alford, Pitino, all wanted the job and that Calipari would have "crawled" from Memphis to get the job. I've also heard Brad Stevens had in his contract that he could leave to go to IU if he had the opportunity... Which just begs the question; how the heck did we end up with 9 years of FCTC?

    Yes, but you don't want to have to hire an AD at the same time you hire a Coach, that's how we ended up with Tom Crean to begin with. They had a blue ribbon committee and chose Crean. Personally, I would have kept Dakich for a year and then hired an AD to then make the decision for the School. Why was a board of people including Gonso making a basketball hire, when none of them knew anything about basketball? That's why you have to give the new AD runway before firing and hiring a new coach. And again Archie may work out.

    Dakich seems to think Gonso is also the problem. Time will tell Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    What I hear some people saying on multiple boards is... Our board of trustees is extremely poor when it comes to making hires, our President is terrible and needs to be replaced, and our AD needs to be fired. But the president will not fire the AD, and even if he does, the BOT will just go out and make another terrible hire. thus continuing the circle of suck. Dakich was on ESPN in 2016 after we fired Crean and was asked what are the pros and cons of IUBB and he stated that the administration is terrible. Although some people dislike Dakich, he's correct on that. Also, I saw on twitter that an alumni was running for the BOT on a Sports type platform. I don't have a link, but I'd like to know how we can promote and vote for him.

    I started this thread, the "Fire Fred Glass" thread as a safe space for people like me to vent their frustrations with the Athletic Department. I hope that no one gets blocked by you for their opinions in this thread. Out of the following members on the BOT, which ones are capable in both firing Fred Glass and making the correct hire going forward? Gonso, McRobbie and Fred Glass act like best friends, no? It seems like the system of checks and balances are all in favor of retaining him for many more years to come.

    Just to play devils advocate. What other Big 10 schools haven't spend money on huge capital campaigns following the increased School enrollment after the great recession? Another poster had mentioned that although we are taking steps forward, we still have worse facilities than Nebraska. If every AD is improving their facilities, how can we really say that is a strong point of Glass?

    SO IU HAS SPENT MORE THAN ANY OTHER SCHOOL IN THE BIG TEN AND HAD THESE RESULTS!!!!! How is this helping your argument. Someone who has this budget with these results is clearly a waste of capital. I'm laughing. Glass: Look at how much money we're making and spending to be an ELITE program! IUBB: misses 7 tournaments in 11 years.

    I'm not judging glass based on two years of Archie. I'm judging him based on 11 years on the job. Fred didn't hire Crean, but he could have definitely fired him. The extension also is the SAME thing as hiring him. I definitely see an NCAA team next year. I don't however, see one that is a legitimate candidate to compete for a national title. I get Archie has a bad roster, but I am fully blaming Glass for hanging onto Crean for too long which caused this terrible roster. I think had Crean landed Kris Wilkes, Fred would not have fired him.

    But any AD at a Big 10 school will be judged on both performances in Basketball and in football. Those are the revenue generating sports. And again i'm not saying that this is a knee jerk reaction to Archie's second season, but what I am saying is that this is the 7th missed tournament in 11 years. All under Fred Glass. So name a Big10 School that will look at his records and see 7 missed basketball tournaments in 11 years and 0 winning football seasons or bowl wins. Name 1 school that will look at that and say "that's our guy". He's not hire-able in the open market. If you're on the outside looking in, the records scream poor upper management.
