    He probably text it outside of the texting period too!

    Great point. Are you ok winning the right way if it's the way Duke does it? Break all the rules with a 4.0 GPA while the NCAA looks teh other way?

    He said Tom Crean has an offer to come back to IU but only if Woody takes over at Purdue.

    OMG this is a perfect analogy.

    Sampson is one of the best basketball coaches in the entire country. I'm guessing you & others just don't like how he wins. I wish he would have stayed at IU, kicked a few guys off the team, and hung a few more banners. He probably would have by now, truth be told, but not at our prideful school! Serious question - What exactly do you and half of the IU fanbase want? You want to win with no risk and no sacrifice. Good luck with that. It's like this vision of an acolyte on the sidelines of Assembly Hall, petting puppies and winning basketball championships all while wearing candy stripes. I think we have this vision of our "squeaky clean" program, and it's actually a huge detriment to our success. The NCAA does NOT care about our pride. They don't give a flying ***k. There's a path to winning, and we're not on it. It doesn't mean IU has to be dirty, but good lord we all need to get over this concept. The NCAA knows: Bill Self breaks all the rules. Tom Izzo...don't even get me started. John Calipari...gross. Kelvin Samson, you over-texting jerk! Mike Schzzlakizkzizaouinveoinveski - super dirty. UNC, super dirty and cheaters on record. Sean Miller, dirty. The list goes on and on and on. All of them got away with it and still get away with it. They know the system. I am not saying I agree with it, but the NCAA makes money on high-profile, winning teams. And with that, they allow certain things. Guess who is the envy of IU basketball? All of those programs and their continued success. They have what we want. When Knight was here, we all overlooked many of his glaring flaws because we won. We were winners. We hung banners. We need to look in the mirror and leave the self-righteous stuff behind. We need to get out of our own way.

    I get why Pearl would make you pause due to his age, but that's the only drawback I see. Pearl is hands down everything Woody is not. He's a recruiter, a winner and has a long-standing track record of success...plus he wants to be here. Aside from age, he's 10x what we have now. Plus he's willing to toe the line, something I think IU needs. Is he Brad Stevens or a young star in the making, no, but he's not asleep on the sidelines and refusing to recruit. But hey, maybe he can get us over the hump.

    I, personally, do not miss our senior point guard. He's a bad look for IU, in general. More harm than good.

    I'd agree with you if NIL and immediate transfers didn't exist. You get the right guy in here, and he can make a very quick impact through the portal and with the support of NIL. If you're questioning that, look at what Cignetti did to the IUFB roster in just 2 months. It's insane. A few years ago, it would have never been possible.

    We play with the energy level of our coach. Lethargic. I was at the game yesterday, and it has turned into an embarrassment. The man has no emotion. He's like the guy you want to sit with at a bar and hear old-time IU stories, not the person leading the charge for a resurgence of a dead program.

    Hypothetically you're the AD

    We're in such a pickle here. Buckner got his guy and we're stuck with him unless Woody agrees to back out, IMO. There's simply no way we fire one of our own guys. It was a mistake bringing him in; like hiring your best friend, and you can never fire him regardless of performance or it tarnishes everything. A foolish move on the BOT part a few years back. Hopefully the Prez pulls a Cignetti the 2nd for us. Gimme a proven winner and stop rolling the dice. Also, I think Dusty May is rolling the dice, and I don't want to be back here in 4 years discussing it. Put me on the BOT and I'll take feedback from this board to help make the decision.

    I'm with you in general. Stevens was a king in my eyes...I bet he LOVED coaching against Mike Davis. Mark Few sure seems clean as well. But seriously, who knows? None of us. That said, let's not forget Painter cheated on his wife with a former Purdue cheerleader leading to divorce. There is no perfect coach, I'm telling you. We all think we know but we don't. I don't know if I want to play the odds for 3 upstanding coaches and 25 who know how to win. Define our boundary and let's hire someone to win within those fences.

    Apologies, this board is littered with men.

    My man, I'm not justifying anything or anyone in the post. I'm saying people are flawed and we aren't going to find a perfect coach. We also looked past all of Knight's flaws because he won games. Lastly, a point that some are far worse than others, which is another point I was trying to make. No need to go to confession over it; there's no condoning of any behavior.

    This is inaccurate.
