So your breaking news is that we should drink Tullamore Dew?  I feel like Ralphie when he gets the decoder pin in A Christmas Story.

Thanks for all of the welcome's. Guess all of us lurkers are coming out because enough is enough. I hoped 2013-2014 was a fluke but this season's been a disaster. And it has been since Ft. Wayne- can't blame that on the injuries. Seems like most of the fanbase is finally on the same page though. I would offer Hoiberg to get him away from my Bulls, but I think we may want more of a defensive minded coach...just a hunch.

My opinion is Crean to Pearl would be a lateral move at best. There would be good and mediocre/bad seasons. I hope that when and if a new coach is brought some form of stability ensues. That's where the media types fail to understand. They cherry pick the good seasons and skip over the crap in between.

If we hired Bruce, I'd throw away all my IU stuff.

Your right. I never see any mentions of the Noah year or the next year. Just the 2 B1G's. Last year was impressive. Very actually. Beating UK and then having to play UNC right after was a bad bracket. Other teams had upsets and I felt like we played the hardest teams only playing 3 games than most. Last year is literally the only year out of 9 I was happy at the end of the year though with our team. I mean technically Cal comes in each year like Creans first yet he keeps them in the title hunt. It didn't take 3 years to get to even footing for him. Seth Davis is getting on my nerves acting like we won't find someone better. I would be stoked with Stevens, Billy D, Bennett, Archie, Collins or Mack and happy with probably 3 or 4 more guys. We will be fine.

If it's been talked about forgive me, but Greenberg was on Dakich's show today. He basically threw IU in same boat as NC State in struggling to find a coach that can do better than the predecessor. I personally find that statement idiotic. Basically said who are you going to get and threw out Holtman's name. What are you guys thoughts on him? I feel he is unproven and we should be able to do better.

Yes.

Under my left armpit.

 

FWIW; under my right armpit is a picture of my dog playing poker.

the mere fact that IU's paying CTC > $3 Mil refutes Greenberg's assertion IMO.

I've wanted Crean gone for a couple of years, heck I would've fired him before last season because it was more than warranted.  I just can't say I have much faith that Glass/the administration will act like this is a blue blood program with literally every single resource a coach could want.

I was happy after the 2011-2012 season. I thought if that team progressed over the summer and were playing their best ball at the end of the year a title was attainable. The problem was the 2012 class didn't provide the depth I thought and Crean ran them into the ground late in the year.

keep in mind that Seth Davis is a Dookie and that K recruits Indiana. No wonder he wants Crean to remain at IU.

I'm with you. IMO I've only been happy with 1 season out of 9 for Crean, and that was 2011-2012, his first year with Zeller. Every other year was a disappointment IMO. I don't think he ever exceeded expectations. For last year I believe he achieved expectations, but I was still disappointed in him because Crean scheduled such a weak non-con, pus was unable to reschedule a game against UK, which forced us into a terrible seed in the tourney. I firmly believe had we scheduled better as played UK, we would have been in a different bracket and possibly made it to the elite 8. Overall though, 1 out of 9 years where he achieved expectations and never went beyond is such a disappointment for me.
