Why would Mark Few ever want to leave the conference Gonzaga is in??
I was alive for the last three IU titles. No comparison to me.IMO, that's a Butler mentality.
I really don't care how we compare to other schools. That's Purdue's thing. I would prefer to go deeper in the tournament but it doesn't change my life in any way. And I'm not willing to "FIRE HIM" if we don't make it.I'm happy to see Butler in the Sweet 16. But as IU fans, given the history of the program, being #1 in the state from a media audience, alumni base, $$, etc., is Sweet 16's satisfying? If IU wants to be talked about in the same breath at Kansas, UNC, Duke, Kentucky, etc., don't they have to get a Final 4 at least once in 4 years?

Another shot at IU. Has tOSU won two of the last four B1G titles?Thad has had some not good seasons of late. Comparable to IU.
Not the point.But it's a football school, as long as the program is competitive, not much to worry about.
He isn't going to win a national championship where he is. And he isn't coming to IU because its fans are too whacked out.Why would Mark Few ever want to leave the conference Gonzaga is in??
I dunno man.
The 12-13 team was really the only "Indiana level" impressive team I have seen, and even they flamed out. Three NBA players on that team.
Last year's B10 title was more of taking advantage of the lopsided B10 scheduling. We won at Iowa, and held serve at home. We didn't play the #2 and #3 teams on the road. Just freaky weird how we got the good teams once....and at home...best schedule I have ever seen.
Even then, we did the typical BTT flame-out, got stuck with a #4 seed because of it, and made it no further than the regional semi's.
If you're the HC at Indiana, you need to get to a FF within your first 10 years. That should be expected.

We were a #5 last year but beat the #4 team. Remember that?
But again...who do you replace him with?
Or at least has heard about it.

Side splittingly funny stuff.
Indiana had some offense last night.
They're trying to make me care before they let me down one more time this season.
For those hoping Coach Knight will return to IU for a visit...
It's a Hoosier thing, you wouldn't understand...
He just said what everybody else who has been fired thinks.

"My favorite time of the day at the Speedway during the month of May was just after dusk, after the track had closed down for day, I used to go out and sit on the pit wall and just listen and think"~ Dick Ralstin
That also describes the guy who yelled at Crean after the game last night.

For what its worth i saw him a few weeks ago and don't believe his health to be good.
Not sure how medicated he was when he said that.
It was obvious in his appearances of the last year or two that he either wasn't well or age had really come up hard on him.
IU is a #3 seed but has to play on the road due to renovations at Assembly Hall.
Now the truth: IU turned down the opportunity to host because the students are on spring break.
The N.I.T.s are already out?
He's the same coach he was last year when he won the B1G and beat UK to advance to the Sweet 16.
I don't think anybody has quit. I think the team has no heart.
It's not all that involved... We have a defense that anbody can score on when pinch comes to shove.
