    Welcome Coach Miller

    Oh shoot I missed my favorite part. “Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with mod powers. Who's gonna do it? You? ... I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it.”

    Yep him and Donovan are NBA coaches unless they don’t want to be. Not because the NBA decides they don’t want them.

    Yeah. People pretend like we aren’t trying at all. Crean and Archie have had the highest recruiting budget and were the second highest paid coaches in the big ten at one point in their tenure. And the highest paid not to have won a Tourney. The key is to have standards and cut a guy when he’s clearly a loser so you can try it again. Two deadbeat coaches should cost 6-8 years not 14 years.

    Do you seriously lurk on this board until somebody mentions you and your terrible posting habits only to leap from the shadows to further solidify those views?

    I think the apathy is growing because it looked like he was a good hire till the collapse in 2018. He started 12-9 his first 21 big ten games and something like 20-30 since then. The universe built us up only to dash our hopes. Even I was hopeful after we started 3-0 in 2018 but then reality set in.

    Well it all started with a phone call. Or more specifically a few too many phone calls...

    Any hire is a crapshoot. It’s all about being willing to cut the anchor once it’s obvious the coach is that. Frankly it’s been obvious since last year. Archie can’t or won’t fix these glaring weaknesses with his teams. There’s no future with him. Crean for all his faults would occasionally build a team that was able to compete.

    Could Cuban even donate money to help IU hire an NBA guy?

    Yeah I have read a bit of the first book and it was so well written. He’s writing a trilogy of the American revolution that I can’t wait for him to finish.

    My initial reaction to the Archie Hire. It wasn’t a serious hire. The only serious hire since Knight was Sampson.

    If people are upset and down about the reality of the program they should create topics on all the things that we have to be optimistic on. Stop blaming the people who see this program for what it is.

    I’m going to finish The Last Battle tonight. It’s a pretty good read. Nothing too special but it chronicles a mission to rescue VIP French prisoners in the closing days of WWII. The special thing about this battle was German Army Units fought with US forces against the SS. Debating on my next book. Might start Rick Atkinsons Liberation trilogy. But not sure

    I think if Thad Matta was interested we might switch this year because of no buyout to pay. Otherwise I am resigned to sucking next year

    The right guy will succeed. And it won’t take 4 years for a program using this many resources to see some ROI

    You’ve made the same mistake several times I corrected you a few times. When you intentionally post something not true what would you call it?
