    Agreed. IF the boosters are happy with the replacement the funds will be there.

    The boosters who are making the call can afford it. Their decision.

    Not EVERYONE...stock markets are at ALL TIME HIGHS, Bitcoin is up a crazy amount, companies are selling at high valuations...people who HAVE money are NOT hurting. Now IF they want to spend it on fixing IUs basketball problem, that is a fair question.

    I'll repeat myself...IF the big $ boosters want to make a serious run at a big name coach they will come up with the $$. IF they don't then I believe you will see us take a shot on an up and comer. The mistake we can't make is to pay someone like a Dane Fife a contract like Archie Miller. IF we are taking a chance we have to have an out to cut bait if it isn't working. NO reason he would deserve 3mm/yr with a large buyout.

    You don't know if you don't ask?? Maybe he would...maybe he is tired dealing with professional players/egos, maybe he hates living in the Northeast/boston, maybe he hates the grind of the 82 game season??? No one knows what he is thinking. And we won't know IF we don't ask? Can't be afraid to get rejected.

    I'm sure he was also intrigued by testing his skills at the highest level....look at football. Nick Saban and now Urban Meyer both taking their shots...same with Pete Carroll. Maybe he will/has decided he prefers the NBA life?? Maybe he also decides he prefers the college life? You at least have to make a serious offer and have him turn you down.

    Not saying this is right, but would recruiting at IU as a coach with his pro resume be "easier" than recruiting at Butler as an unknown? Can't he get top flight assistants who could do most of the groundwork in recruiting? Isn't Bloomington a better place too live with better cost of living than Boston? Can't he make as much here as in the NBA (factor in taxes and cost of living)? Won't players "listen" to him in college vs tune him out in the NBA (going on currently???)? Seems like there are pros/cons to each job. Not sure what he would currently think of the opportunity, but if you are in charge of IU basketball you have to come up with a strong case and make THE PITCH.

    Why do people think he WON'T leave the NBA to return to college? Especially if he views Indiana as home and IU as a dream job?? Things in life change. Who knows what he currently is thinking UNLESS you make a serious run at him.

    What makes him interesting? IU should have higher expectations than a relatively new assistant coach with no real accomplishments.

    I would agree that IU themselves will not proactively try to fire Archie after this year given budgetary constraints. However, if a booster(s) want Archie fired after this year it WILL happen whether it cost 5mm, 10mm or 15mm?? These people will have the funds to pay for what they WANT. The question should be not will IU fire Archie, but what do the large donor boosters think about Archie???
