Can’t disagree with that either. I feel bad for some. There were people that hated Crean far worse than the people making daily mentions and they have moved on. Some people I swear have PTSD. Feel bad for them. Hopefully the team starts doing well enough for them to move on. Some I don’t think ever will.

If Archie is who I think most of us believe he can be then I think people will eventually move past the whole 17 year debacle that was our program.

Adam Vinatieri could reveal himself to be an actual cyborg hiding on our planet from the aliens that Murdered his cyborg family and the conversation would mention Crean within 3 pages. 

I expect this book to be available in the Kindle Lending Library within the next few months.

At least they had Juwan on the Cover and not an Illini player like they usually have! Lol

Agreed. As I have said before when K announces his retirement every established successful coach will get a pay raise. 

Duke will have to hire an up and comer much like us. Unless there is an established coach that is unhappy where he’s at.

Do you want to follow a legend?  Hard for me to fathom an established coach - not of the Coach K pedigree - wanting to have that shadow hanging over your head every single day.

It would have to be somebody at a Blue Blood not willing to take a step down.

That is a fair point too. You will never measure up to him. It will probably take Duke overpaying for a name. Like a Billy D for sake of discussion. Someone that has a few years left and isn’t scared of legacy. He probably won’t do as well as K obviously but isn’t scared. The person following him won’t be as intimidated.

Duke will not be afraid to overpay. According to Sports Illustrated, Coach K makes just shy of $9 Million and is the highest paid.

1. Mike Krzyewski (Duke), $8.98 million

2. John Calipari (Kentucky), $7.45 million

3. Chris Holtmann (Ohio State), $7.15 million

4. Bill Self (Kansas) $7.15 million

5. Tom Izzo (Michigan State) $4.36 million

6. Sean Miller (Arizona), $4.05 million

7. Bob Huggins (West Virginia), $3.75 million

8. Larry Krystkowiak (Utah), $3.39 million

9. John Beilein (Michigan), $3.37 million

10. Archie Miller (Indiana), $3.20 million

Man,Holtman hit the jackpot.

Pretty hefty compensation for someone with his experience.

O$U throwing it around.

From LandofTen

 

"First-year Ohio State coach Chris Holtmann is listed as the highest-paid Big Ten coach this season, though that figure is a bit misleading. Holtmann is listed as making $7,149,849 in “school pay” this season, but roughly $4 million of that pays for his buyout at Butler. “School pay includes $2,040,360 in one-time supplemental pay and a $1,879,640 tax gross-up payment on that amount,” USA Today noted.

Holtmann — the 2017-18 Big Ten Coach of the Year — still makes good money. He had a base salary of $3 million per season when he signed his contract in June, which would still rank in the top 15 of college coaches."

Mike Davis is gonna do real well at UD. I look forward to seeing what they do. He seems to win at these small schools

Certainly fared well at Texas Southern, given the challenges. 4 NCAA trips in 6 seasons...in a one bid league, that is a great run.

Which happens first:
IU plays in a regional final or UD plays in the 2nd round? Big Dance not NIT.

I like the Davis hire but UD has a hard row to hoe in that league. Even with Valpo having moved on, you still have strong programs in Oakland, Northern Kentucky, the two Wisconsin schools, etc.

I think IU has a shot to get to the second weekend this year. It all comes down to whether they can get their point guard situation addressed, but at least they have options. Their post combination will be one of the better ones you'll find anywhere and Langford gives them a major talent on the wing. I'm not betting on an Elite Eight but I do think they've got a shot at it this year if everything breaks the right way. I think they are the team in the Big Ten with the best chance of pulling away from the pack. I've got them 3rd because I'm not a believer that everything will come together entirely for them, but if it does, there's enough material on hand to have a very good season.
