    Happy to see you back here! Hoping it's for some good news...like these Billy D rumors :)

    Thanks for all of the welcome's. Guess all of us lurkers are coming out because enough is enough. I hoped 2013-2014 was a fluke but this season's been a disaster. And it has been since Ft. Wayne- can't blame that on the injuries. Seems like most of the fanbase is finally on the same page though. I would offer Hoiberg to get him away from my Bulls, but I think we may want more of a defensive minded coach...just a hunch.

    Hey btownbanners! Long time lurker/new poster here. I guess you can say my increasing want for Crean to be fired has led me to finally post. I enjoy reading all of your posts and look forward to the day everyone can celebrate our new coach at IU. I graduated IU back in 2012 and did get to meet Crean and supported him back then. I think that Syracuse game in 2013 was when I started to question him. I was even at the IU/Kentucky game and nothing can describe the feeling that night. I worry if Glass brings him back next year, there could be irreparable issues for the program going forward. Hoping IU can land someone great to bring us back to the good old days!
