    The general trend of the program is more positive than its last three 18-16, 16-15 and 19-16 record seasons. But that's comparing IU in a vacuum to the final year of Crean and two bad Archie Years. Its like being the best looking person in a room full of lepers, it doesn't hold much weight.. You need to compare them to the peer group. You clearly have never done any sort of analysis before. If you had ever done so you would be comparing your Archie Stock to the entire market. Specifically, look at precedent transactions of coaches such as Mack and Holtmann to get a micro viewpoint, and then expand further to consider all NCAA division 1 coaches for a macro look. Chris Holtmann took over at OSU where they missed the tournament in 15-16 (NIT) and 16-17 (No Postseason) Mack took over at Louisville from an Interim David Padgett who made it to the NIT, and he coaches in the ACC Chris Beard took over a program that went to 1 NCAA tournament in its last 11 years. How is Archie's situation any different than those around him? But hey... Archie is poised to do better than missing the tournament, so by that measure, he's clearly better than the others.

    I hear what you are saying. My point is, when compared to Holtmann and Mack, he’s not looking good at this point in time. I’ll give him a pass on year one, but last year I firmly believe we under achieved, regardless of the circumstances. If and IF we miss the tournament again, I’d be ready to move on if we could get Chris Beard. I don’t want a CTC thing to happen where we make the S16 and everyone loses their minds. I worry that Archie could be similar in the sense that our teams are 1 dimensional and under achieve in the long term. I’m not writing him off, but if I were the AD I’d fire him after a third consecutive miss. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Missing the tournament 3 seasons in a row is pretty bad. I'm giving a pass on year one. Year two we had a play in game against OSU and lost (at home if i'm not mistaken) if we miss in year 3, then what is the barometer for year 4? making the tournament? Lets pretend in a hypothetical world where we miss the tournament for the 3rd year in a row under Archie, and lets pretend buyouts are not an issue, What would you all do?

    Glass is so bad at his job that people openly admit that at this point it's his bosses fault for not firing the guy or holding him accountable.

    Fred Glass in both 2010 and 2011: "Why would IU go after Brad Stevens, he has a job, and IU has a coach!" Fred Glass in 2018 and 2019: "Why would IU go after Chris Beard, he has a job and IU has a coach!" Fred Glass in 2028 after missing the tournament 13 times in 20 years : "Why would IU go after the next hottest coach, he has a job and IU has a coach!"

    They could have not gone after Chris Beard. They could have said "He has a job, why would he leave" and done nothing.

    https://247sports.com/college/rutgers/LongFormArticle/Rutgers-Football-Coaching-Hot-Board-Who-will-be-next-136001492/#136001492_9 Pretty good in depth list of potential football coaches... if we are putting on our AD hats.

    I would hire Chris Beard. Have I said that enough on this site yet? haha For football who are the next up and comers? I'd hire the hungriest of the bunch.

    I'm simply asking a question Old Friend. Something that has perplexed me for quite some time. I'm aware of how rumors start, but the fact no one with connections to the program came out and squashed it outright was bizarre to me. Am I impossible to please? No. I'm very clear in my bias that I believe Fred Glass is not the brilliant man that you think he is, but rather one of the worst athletic directors in history. Is he good at capital improvements? Well it seems that same fans think he's doing the bare minimum and others think hes doing great. As I've posted about before; I firmly believe the way he looks at, analyzes, and problem solves issues with IU athletics is not in any way shape of form brilliant. Although past performance isn't always an indicator of future results, it appears that in the begining of the Archie and Allen years, we're set to continue past performance. 7 of 11 missed tournaments, no bowl wins, not a single winning football season. Basketball and Football both are a coin flip of are we better or worse than the year before. If Fred is athletic director for 10 more years and the basketball program missed the tournament 13 of 20 possible tournaments then will you admit you were wrong about Fred? Because I will admit I was wrong about Archie when he wins a championship, and I will admit I was wrong on Allen if we make a bowl, and I will finally admit that I was wrong about Fred.

    IU has people that monitor some of the boards, they could have leaked info that Donovan was never contacted. Just my opinion. They don't need to hold a press conference.

    If IU did not receive a generous donation for the naming rights of that building, then what an absolute mistake. The building naming rights are worth at least a few million. That money could have gone to scholarships, campus improvements, etc.

    Just curious, but if Donovan was never contacted, why didn't the AD or athletic department dispel the rumors? I mean, when fans think they are getting Donovan and then we end up with Archie, it kind of leaves a bad taste in ones mouth. I was listening to the radio and the host was saying former IU players were excited because even they thought Donovan was about to sign a contract. Like how did that rumor not get squashed?

    I'm saying if the end goal is win a championship and we have a coach who isn't capable of winning big road or neutral games, then we need to look at that as an evaluator and less on big wins like against Marquette at home.
