TOM CREAN FIRED

Recommended Posts

Is it just me or has it gotten extremely quiet with recruiting the last week or so other than the C.J. Frederick offer. I don't know that Crean has ever been this quiet. I mean I haven't heard of any scouting or new offers. Could it be a sign that something is up? I don't know but I do find it interesting.

Awkward position to be in with potential recruits as well as our '17 commits.  How would any of us respond to questions from the kids, their parents, their coaches with all the rumors flying about if we were CTC?  Right now, silence may be the best for all concerned.

I 100% agree but it really doesn't seem to be his style at all. I mean he is known for making offers that we don't even have room for. So it just seems to be kind of odd in my opinion.

Anybody see Chuck Martins last tweet? 

 

"Collin Hartman the lone senior was a big reason for success last year and would've made a huge difference this year..." 

 

Not exact quote, but 90% there.

 

do these coaches ever think of anything other than excuses? My dad taught me to man up when I'm wrong.

If he may not be the coach what smart kid would honestly listen to his pitch? Sides kids that like IU for IU and not who coaches which nowadays relationships with certain coaches are even more important.

I get what you are saying, but.... he's 100% inaccurate in what he wrote. Don't see that as an excuse, but see it more of a compliment to Hartman since senior night is approaching.

13th in the Big Ten with 2 McDonald's All Americans and 2 other top 60 players in the starting lineup... Lol. Multiple 4 stars coming off the bench. Man, what a competent coach could do with that bunch. If Crean refuses to walk away he absolutely deserves to be fired. We don't owe him anything at this point. He's not getting $3 million a year and the largest recruiting budget in the conference to chill with Rutgers in the basement of the Big 10. 



But, but, but, but he's won 2 conference titles in 9 seasons, 2of 4. Who gives a ****

They might honestly finish 13th with Ohio State beating Wisconsin last night. Even if IU were lucky enough to win at home against Northwestern, they're gonna lose on the road to Purdue and Ohio State. IU is gonna be playing on Wednesday in the BTT. Good freakin lord man

Any chance success in this year's tournament changes opinions on coaching candidate rankings?

For example, say dark horse candidates like Tim Jankovich at SMU or Will Wade at VCU make an Elite 8? Does that push guys like them into consideration?

If someone like Steve Prohm takes Iowa State to the Elite 8, does that sky rocket him to the top of the list? Or if Holtmann takes Butler to a Sweet 16 or Elite 8, I think that should solidify him as our top candidate. Same with Archie Miller at Dayton.

What does another Final Four or Elite 8 for Gregg Marshall do in our consideration?

I really, really hope not. 1 magical season is nice, but as we have figured out (Crean), that isn't a recipe for further success. Give me someone who has sustained success over a flash in the pan. Guys like Donovan, Miller, Marshall, Bennett. Those are the guys we should, and have the ability to, go after.
