    Coach Curt Cignetti to INDIANA

    There is no history of success because the university doesn't care about football. If that's not obvious, I don't know what to say. While I agree with your premise of laying the foundation and all of that, it is a moot point if the university doesn't make football every bit the priority that basketball has historically been. It really is as simple as that. What coach of any stature would WANT to come here given the lackadaisical support that this program has had? Answer? Nobody. That's why you get the names we've had, and will continue to have. Football is the bastard stepchild, and until the powers that be decide to change that mentality, nothing else matters.

    Coach Curt Cignetti to INDIANA

    Indiana is bad because Indiana could not care less about its football program. Unless and until that changes, Indiana will always be bad. Doesn't matter who the coach is. When the powers that be are ready and willing to throw the bank at football, Indiana can then be good. Not until. I'm still not convinced that Indiana even cares about basketball at this point, but that's another conversation altogether.

    Just remember, this is what the fan base has been screaming for ever since RMK was fired. Just have to have an IU guy running things. Now they've got it. Careful what you ask for, that's going to most likely be the lesson to learn here with CMW.

    Might as well get used to mediocrity, because if it takes a few years to fire a non-IU grad, they'll never fire a native son. This, my friends, is the new Indiana basketball.

    Xavier Arrested...

    Yes, actually you do. Heaven forbid you actually require these kids to grow up and be responsible. Stupidity costs, they need to learn these lessons now.

    2022 NCAA Tournament / Bracket Reveal

    We don’t have a coach who can throw a good right smack on someone. Woody needs to hit the punching bag in the off season.

    No it’s a true statement.

    Because we let them. Everything that happened in the last 9 minutes was all on Indiana. They got lazy and sloppy.

    College Bball Thread

    Howard is a thug, has a track record of being such. Fire him and just like any other NCAA violation, slap a show cause on him as to why he should ever get another coaching job.

    Mike Woodson and His Coaching Staff

    I agree. Would be really interesting to do a “post-mortem” to see if we can figure out exactly what went wrong and why.

    CBB: Roy Williams Retires from UNC

    Some of us were never on the Stevens train to begin with.
  14. Because in the feeble, simpleton mindset, whatever happened somewhere else just has to happen at Indiana. They can't process it any other way.
