TOM CREAN FIRED

Recommended Posts

I don't know what it says about the process if McRobbie is involved. He is president of IU and 99% of that I would guess has nothing to do with IUBB, so it kind of worries me to have him involved to be honest. Why would boosters and donors need his involvement? I don't know the answer; I'm legitimately asking.

Because Glass is very weak in regards to Crean.

Because this matter involves $$$$$ coming into the University.  If large donors are threatening to close their pockets, those at the HIGHEST levels need to take action to ensure that that does not happen.... The University cannot operate without $$$$ from boosters...

Could be a lot of things. I could see it being mainly because he doesnt want any leaks. He is probably making sure everyone understands that. Thats my guess but could also mean one of two things...he is tired of them reaching out because he wants to keep Crean or the complete opposite and doesnt like the direction it is going in.

Saw on twitter Collin Hartman was playing Saturday against Northwestern for senior day. Don't know if this means anything in regards to Crean potentially leaving for a "soft landing" job like NC State or Mizzou but it's interesting to note.

For Collin's sake, that makes no sense.  He's going to blow an entire year of eligibility so he can play in 4 games in an already lost season???

Unfortunately, I think it means Colin will not be playing for IU next year.  I saw on a different site there was speculation that he has already accepted a job in Indy.  As far as what it means for Crean, I have no idea, but I certainly hope it means he's found a soft landing spot.

Yeah, I wouldn't read too much into this.  I heard weeks ago that Hartman had no intention of playing next year.  Even before all the speculation about Crean leaving took legs.

Never knew he potentially already accepted job, thanks for info. I just feel like something is going on that we don't know about but I may be wrong.

He's not playing. He's giving his senior day speech. Big difference.

Maybe, but as others have pointed out, contract needs to be extended or will crater recruiting completely. A contract extension, even a year, after this season would cause an uproar. I can't imagine a change not being made. The question is, will it be the right change?

Michigan got a new president who knew nothing about sports, and still got Harbaugh. Just saying.

I wonder how President McRobbie feels about Crean. The multiple off-the-court issues from the players a couple years ago made the university look pretty bad. I doubt McRobbie has forgotten about them. Add in donations drying up and I don't think he would hesitate to step in and make sure Crean leaves.

Why are you beginning to wonder? What single speck of a thing has Fred Glass done in the past few months, since this season began to go downhill, to make you think that Glass is becoming less likely to dismiss Tom Crean?
Yeesh.

What I heard today would make one question it. Crean and Glass are petty close and Crean was also on the committee of advisors that brought in some of the administration that would also need to be involved in the firing. He is very closely tied to these people and that makes some, even some close to the situation take pause as to whether they will actually follow through and fire him

Makes more sense.... He can go elsewhere next year and play if he so desires (and should, IMO)...


In Hartmans case it just depends on what he wants to do. If he wants to play basketball more at this level or possibly over seas then yes he should play again but if he wants to move on with his life and begin a career in what he will be doing in life then he should move on. I don't know all his options but trust it isn't easy but he will know what is best for him imo
