I wonder what Fred Glass thinks when he hears that Purdue is in the Elite 8

The football stadium needs a bigger flagpole.

On a serious note, I hope Archie, Fred, the BOT and boosters are sweating a little bit. If they actually care about winning they should be upset.

If we were to send Quinn we might have a chance. Unless I am wrong Quinn still feels strongly for RMK but serves at IU.

Yeah but he ain’t coaching at IU. I get what you are saying. But I just feel this is on another level since Pat didn’t end up getting the job and everything else. I am an Archie fan. I would do anything I could to get Beard. I think he will be that good.

If I am the AD I’m telling Chris Beard to stay at tech for one more year and then I’m firing Archie after next to get Beard. 4 mil a year. He’s the best coach I’ve seen that’s available since maybe Stevens.

Because Beard was and is close with Bob Knight. He wouldn’t cross him like that.

Knight is in failing health they say. You really think he would turn down 6 million from iu for knight? IU would never offer that so its a mute point but I think he would consider it. The thing is IU has the money they just wont go big like a Kansas would.

The thing is beard could be gone by then. You get him now if you can. If enough boosters and the BOT wants archie out now not much fred can do. I want archie succeed but if you can get beard you make the change now.

Beard is staying or I really believe he’s going to 1 of 2 Pac12 schools. Fredinator doesn’t have the balls to make a move like that.

His name is Cool Dad, lol

At this point I would 100% make the move if possible.

Any of you ever hear of shiny object syndrome?

Not saying Beard won’t be great, but every year we find another coach to glorify and put on a pedestal.

He’s made the tourney three out of four years the fresh starts at to schools there’s clearly something there

Once again, not saying Beard isn’t the real deal.

Commentary was that we find some coach to glorify every year. It makes it seem like everyone has a better coach that way.
