Potential fallout from coaching change

Recommended Posts

Personal attack, after personal attack from you. King, you don't know what you are saying.


Personal attack? I'm confused is my generation too sensitive and PC. Or do we just resort to personal attacks. There was no personal attack.

Literally everyone else's sources are saying what amounts to them exact opposite of what you are saying. I'm gonna go ahead and trust everyone else. Also, hiring Keith Smart as head coach should be seen as nothing short of an unmitigated disaster

Guys, anyone can say they have sources. I'm not saying 87 is right or wrong with his sources, but 87, we get it, but let's move on!

You believe/know Stevens isn't coming. After knowing 41 for some time, I believe what he says. However, let's not post every other post as Brad isn't coming.

He may not, but .......... I will just leave it at that.

Wait have we found out the secret former Hoosier candidate (Keith Smart)? I would love to see Keith get a shot but I would think he needs some more time as a HC, preferably at this level.

I am almost 99% sure that is who 87 is referencing. I think a lot of the younger generation would be pissed if he was hired

During the Sampson hire there was a group of Trustees that reportedly were working to being in Alford. Some good rumor sources suggested he had a staff hired and was ready to go. The rumor grew into a 3 o clock press conference and Steve flying in when suddenly we get word that we hired Sampson.

I am not sure how far things ever got with Steve but I do believe there was a strong interest then by some trustees to hire an IU guy. I now think the search was disjointed and there may have been a few groups trying to bring in guys. Who knows but I sure hope we are not on that path again.

Keith is a great person as well as coach, but I didn't say he was the one. Let me just say this, I don't mind being discounted, after all, none of you know me personally. However, I've been fortunate to experience IU basketball in an era and from a perspective that few have had. I am immensely grateful for that, and it is for that reason alone that I care deeply for IU basketball. I'm sorry if I have offended some of you with my posts, I have what we used to call a type "A" personality. I would just suggest that as much as things change, they stay the same and the future will play out in the future. Much of what happens is determined by the Varsity Club members, they are the jokers with the juice, and until they decide, Glass doesn't know which way to turn his head. None the less, I believe that the next Coach will be someone from the past at IU.

Until the younger generation can start footing the bill, my friend, their opinion means diddly.

Do you think the process is a centralized deliberate process targeting specific people? The time before Crean there was one group chasing
Alford while the president chased Sampson

Sounds like IU athletics is a big political machine... Oh wait

DANE FIFE BABY!!!!!!!!!!


That was one name my dad threw out there when he and I were texting after the Iowhattheheck game.

From conversations with him, seems like he thinks (and no he's not a source) we will go with an IU guy.

I know Fife doesn't have a lot of experience, but I do kinda want a young guy, who can come in and make another 30+ year dynasty. Not saying I think Fife is the guy we should go for, but I'd like to see someone young who isn't afraid to reshape the landscape of college basketball.
