Welcome Coach Miller

Recommended Posts

He is not a homerun hire and I have to say I am nervous with all this Alford to IU talk. Look at it this way. Most of us want Donovan over Alford but what if the national media was saying Donovan to IU. Would we say they are wrong? I worry we just go off what we want to hear instead of common sense. Maybe that's just the pessimistic side coming out.

I want Donovan but my gut feeling says it won't be him.  Sadly I won't be surprised if we end up with Alford.
My gut also said Crean was staying so there is that.

I'm thinking we'll end up with someone else altogether. If you think about it, it was pretty amazing how few people actually knew about Crean being fired. If this is left up to Glass, and I'm not totally sure it is, I bet select few actually really know what is going on.

Yeah, that's my fear.
Hope Glass can somehow unite the fanbase. (The Alford rumors make sense and matches much of Glass' comments-And Janitor continues to beat that drum)

It seems the only way that happens is Stevens, Donovan, and MAYBE Sean Miller.

Janitor has been pumping the story that Alford wants IU, but recently began saying Donovan like everyone else

I think you've pinned down the narrative pretty well.

This sounds like our next coach. I'm not exhilarated about it. But reading that quote it sure sounds like the Alford rumors have merit.

Sounds like a guy who wants to be Indiana's coach. We've heard rumors from the same people that said Crean was being fired that Alford has been ruled out by Glass.

UCLA fans don't even want Alford. That's telling.

"So, let me get this straight. According to this report, Adidas is about to get suckered into paying UCLA another $7.8 million to take our basketball coach of questionable moral character who has never made it past the Sweet 16 off our hands? Now, this is an Adidas check that Dan Guerrero should send Tyus Edney to cash!"

There have been no flights from okc to Indy or to btown this morning. Could it be he flew in last night of course but I really didn't have time to go through all the flight history. Plenty of websites you guys can look at. Just Google flight history

What gives me some hope is that the same posters that were saying there'd be a press conference and that Crean was probably gone are the same ones saying Donovan.
