    I voted no, and in my opinion anyone voting yes is not a "true fan" of Indiana basketball. Voting no to what was asked isn't the same as saying he should be fired. Not being happy with him as a coach acknowledges the fiasco that this past season was, and possibly some of the negative trends many posters have said they have observed over the past 3 years. That's not saying things can't get better without a change. Personally, I'm not optimistic about the current coaching situation, but I don't get to make the decision about who is the coach.

    Then call out the rumor and state it is false. The statements made last night went beyond this, and from my perspective will only serve to divide the fan base and make many fans think twice about supporting the program. I will qualify the last part by saying I am a lifelong IU fan, and will continue to support the basketball program through good and bad. Just like I have the football team and all other sports. Doesn't mean I like the results or direction, but IU is my school, and these are my teams.

    If Leal and Galloway are playing next year, why did they give speeches after the game. It's supposed to be an opportunity to say goodbye not that you'll be coming back.

    Funderburke transferred to O$U, I believe at the time the B1G had a rule that transfers within conference had to sit a year

    Most of those that I talk with are ready to move on, but a few are still firmly in MW's corner. My statement was in response to Chris talking about a new staff and GM and building through the portal every year. I don't think that will produce a winning program, but more importantly, won't be agreeable to a big chunk of the fan base. I think such a move will be the end of IU Basketball as we know it.

    IU Basketball News and Notes

    Unfortunately, the Irish Lion has been closed over winter break for the past several years. Still lots of other good options around the square and on Kirkwood.

    Article by Osterman in Indy star says that by IU policy, if suspension is for failed drug test they cannot dress, and they are dressed tonight. Flip side could be that they got caught with weed and failed test could come later resulting in further suspension.

    Offensive Coordinator - Walt Bell

    So I've kind of taken the day to let this hire sink in, while checking this board periodically as time allowed. While I accept that this is not the type of hire many wanted, and yes, much of the information I've seen here is nothing that makes me jump for joy, I also have not had time to research him for myself. But, I understand that IU is not a top flight destination for most coaches trying to work their way up the coaching ladder, and that had we have been able to land the type of hire many on here seem to have wanted, it would have been another DeBoer situation and they would be gone for greener pastures in a year or 2. Bell has the requisite experience, even if the results leave something to be desired. Does anyone here truly believe that CTA would purposely hire someone that will cost him his job in a couple of years? I don't, but I also know that IU is not going to pay to bring in a top flight coordinator, so I trust that CTA made the hire that he thought was best given whatever constraints he had placed on him. As others have said, there are many examples of successful coordinators moving up to HC positions and failing. Cam Cameron being a prime example. The decision has been made, and as an IU fan I will root like hell for him to succeed. Yes, some players and recruits will decide to move on, so be it, if they, or the staff, don't believe the fit is right. I just can't get on board with bashing the guy before the hire has even been officially announced. Hopefully, as IU fans, we can all agree that whether or not we agree with the hire, we hope he succeeds, and makes IU better.

    We'll be lucky if X doesn't have 3 fouls before the tip...

    Tough loss. As bad as they shot, they were still in the game with 3 minutes left and they let it get away. Just like with the men's team the past few years, you have to be able to hit open outside shots.

    Thankful for Holmes. If we're anywhere near our average we win running away
