Ed Schilling Leaving, Mike Roberts Arriving

Ed Schilling may have ties to the state, but they're waning the further away he gets from his camps, and I have not been sold on ANY of the assistant coaches from a basketball standpoint.   Can he take Bruiser with him?  Surely an IU guy can stand with his hands in his pockets and look away from the huddle.

I'm with you on Flint.  Hated that one from the beginning.

It’s possible for an assistant coach to be pretty much useless (recruiting, strategy, etc.) and still be very much liked by the players. I’ve seen it a handful of times, but I’m just reading tea leaves and guessing here. 

I believe you are on the right track. Reading tea leaves could be lucrative in your future.

I was at the 11 game watching Femi last night so I did not fully processed that this had happened until this morning.  Either way this is very interesting and I am curious to see who IU gets to replace him.

I usually try and find a silver lining in things. I truly think we can find a better assistant. But this is just bad all of the way around. Firing an assistant in June if it’s purely job performance related? That’s April. Imo that’s just bad for Archie.

I heard Kentucky has one of the world’s leading Tea Leaf Reading degree programs.  

 

What do the UK basketball players say about it, you ask?

“6 out of 5 stars would learn it in school that I definitely participated in again!”

I guess the silver lining is, if it wasn’t a fit and he wasn’t successful as an assistant it’s better to pull the plug late than never.

Still odd timing for certain and the Van Eyl recruitment must be a factor.

Is there any truth to Schilling liking a tweet by this Austin Van Zyl kid. Supposedly he liked the tweet where Van Zyl announced we extended a scholarship offer, which may not be true?

Schilling offer the kid on the way out the door to piss CAM off haha. The timing and wording around this is is just odd, especially in reading that not all of the players had been made aware as of 2 hours ago.

It’s not in his likes on twitter so if he did he has since unliked it.

Tom Crean could really fix our broken offense. 

Edit

We really just need a good shooting coach if we could have hit just 35% of our 3s our offense would have been fine. 

He didn't really have an offense outside of "run faster", take that away he had absolutely nothing.  If that's a "fix", I think our issues go beyond an assistant.

Whatever it was it scored points efficiently. Mostly because people actually hit their 3s

First part is true. Second part is guesswork.

If so, why now and not before spring evaluations, recruiting, and offers?

Sure it's guesswork, but so is every other comment on here, including the "Schiller is abandoning a sinking ship" comment.

True but he does have a history of getting out early
