    I will say on the athletic administration side it hasn't gotten anywhere near where it was at the end of the Crean era. No one wanted him around in Assembly hall or on campus. I specifically asked someone last week who works with Archie every day about this, they said great person to work with, a team player does his job and doesn't tell anyone else how to do theirs. Because I was hearing from fans or boosters he is arrogant or thinks a lot of himself. Most really like him as a person, just wish he would win more

    I’ll take this opportunity to say I hope whatever this rumor turns out to be isn’t too serious, but... Sam Story sucks.

    Saw this on Twitter and it’s so true: “Doing nothing will be costlier than the buyout”

    We’d do well. Or we wouldn’t. We’d definitely do something.

    Exactly just put out the info that you hear or know, state that this is what you have heard. If it turns out wrong, say sorry that's what I was told. I have had lots of people tell me things. If I feel like sharing I do, if it's wrong I say my bad. Speaking of that my favorite butter burger maker in town told me that he is 70-80% sure Archie will be not back next year. Is he connected? Yes but how connected I don't know anymore. But I do know he loves IU

    Couldn’t agree more. This type of attention grabbing look at me tweet drives me insane. Either share what you know, or shut up.

    As much as I like Archie, I do love a good coaching search. The planes, the rumors, the sightings are all the drama I love

    The good thing about Matta is that he had sustained success at a football school, which we now are.

    The new scouting report on us, sans Race Thompson ... "They got no head toppers -- a bunch of mites, run ya off the boards. You got to squeeze 'em back in the paint, make 'em chuck it from the cheap seats."

    RE: Thad Matta I'll admit when I first heard his name I wasn't enthused. But then I looked at his resume... Season Team Overall Conference Standing Postseason Butler Bulldogs (Midwestern Collegiate Conference) (2000–2001) 2000–01 Butler 24–8 11–3 1st NCAA Division I Round of 32 Butler: 24–8 (.750) 11–3 (.786) Xavier Musketeers (Atlantic 10 Conference) (2001–2004) 2001–02 Xavier 26–6 14–2 1st NCAA Division I Round of 32 2002–03 Xavier 26–6 15–1 1st NCAA Division I Round of 32 2003–04 Xavier 26–11 10–6 T–4th NCAA Division I Elite Eight Xavier: 78–23 (.772) 39–9 (.813) Ohio State Buckeyes (Big Ten Conference) (2004–2017) 2004–05 Ohio State 20–12 8–8 6th Ineligible 2005–06 Ohio State 26–6 12–4 1st NCAA Division I Round of 32 2006–07 Ohio State 35–4 15–1 1st NCAA Division I Runner-up 2007–08 Ohio State 24–13 10–8 5th NIT Champion 2008–09 Ohio State 22–11 10–8 T–4th NCAA Division I Round of 64 2009–10 Ohio State 29–8 14–4 T–1st NCAA Division I Sweet 16 2010–11 Ohio State 34–3 16–2 1st NCAA Division I Sweet 16 2011–12 Ohio State 31–8 13–5 T–1st NCAA Division I Final Four 2012–13 Ohio State 29–8 13–5 T–2nd NCAA Division I Elite Eight 2013–14 Ohio State 25–10 10–8 5th NCAA Division I Round of 64 2014–15 Ohio State 24–11 11–7 6th NCAA Division I Round of 32 2015–16 Ohio State 21–14 11–7 7th NIT Second Round 2016–17 Ohio State 17–15 7–11 T–10th Ohio State: 337–123 (.733) 150–78 (.658) Total: 439–154 (.740) A few notes... - Ohio State's all-time leader in wins - Made the NCAA Tournament 13/16 eligible seasons. - 2 Final Fours, 2 Elite 8's, 3 Sweet 16's. - 8 conference championships, 7 conference tournament championships - In 17 years as coach, he had a losing conference record just ONE time... his last year. That looks like the pillar of sustained success and competitiveness in the Big Ten. He would instantly become one of the top coaches in the Big Ten with his resume. Players would be more apt to listen to him because he's actually been to the top of mountain... he'd know what he was talking about. I would have loved to have his results in the last 20 years. It's true he's been out of coaching for four years... but I sincerely doubt he has lost all of his connections. He's got strong connections in the Midwest and would be able to hire a strong staff. He has always been a great recruiter and raked in plenty of talent form the Midwest over the years. He's put a number of players in the NBA over the years. He's got a background in Indiana coaching at Butler. He'd be a great fit here. If he's healthy and wants to come... I think he's worth a shot. No buyout for him, right? That's a bonus. I think we'd be guaranteed some success with him. I think our administration keeps hoping to hire the next young Bob Knight... but I think hiring a proven guy like Matta would be more beneficial to this program right now. If you think Kelvin Sampson was a good coach... compare his resume to Matta's and you'll be pleased with what you see.

    Allow me to suggest one other truly fantastic candidate for the IU head coaching job (should the job open up). I'm a fan to the extent that I suggested him four years ago during the Archie search; he was REALLY young then. But at that time he had already been a G League head coach for over three years. Save this post because this guy is gonna be a very successful head coach before too long. His resume at age 31? College Assistant Coach Studied at the feet of Brad Stevens G League head coach for an extended period NBA Head of Player Development Currently in his third year as an NBA Assistant Native Hoosier Incredible personality, incredible competitor Really young--I'm okay with that. Get a gray hair to sit next to him. Hornets veteran Cody Zeller was particularly ecstatic about his hiring as an NBA Assistant, stating in a tweet that he almost attended Butler University to play alongside him. “He’s a guy that I wanted to go to battle with every night,” Zeller said in the tweet. If we want to hire a coach for his future? Here's your guy. Here's your chance to roll the dice on a guy that really, truly could be the next Bobby Knight. Ronald Nored PS: By the way, when RMK was hired at IU he was exactly 31 years old.

    I never said Beard might get fired. My point all along is you are not paying $10 million to buyout Archie to hire Steve Alford or Dane Fife. That's bad business, especially during a pandemic. It has to be a huge hire that is guaranteed to do it this year. Otherwise, save your money for next year.

    Look on the bright side. This kind of collapse on the heels of the last game may loosen the purse strings of some big $$ donors.

    I pushed back pretty hard, but in no way personally, on some things he tweeted during the Aminu Mohammed recruitment. Mentioned that I thought some of his scouting reports were pretty far off on some stuff. You’d have thought I’d tried to nail his mother. He is....a touch soft.

    This is Dolson's opportunity to make his mark as AD and he's not going to want to screw it up. He's going to make certain he's got the $$ if there's to be a buyout this year but IMO he's going to be equally certain he's got his next coach "in the bag". I don't sense any coaching search the next time around. There may be one announced for public perception, but the next man up will have been pre-determined. I think IU is still attractive enough that Dolson has been receiving numerous inquiries from the coaching agent fraternity.
