  1. As much as I know this needs to happen and I agree that it's time and needs to happen, I still hate it. I really like Archie. At least what I know publicly, he seems like a good guy and I really thought we had found our guy. It's a real shame it hasn't worked out, and on the personal side I'm sad for Archie and his family, as well as the IU fan base.

  2. Just got a text saying that barring a big ten tournament championship Archie is done. I guess we won’t have to wait long if it’s true.. Edit- also stated it will be a mutual decision so the buyout may not be as big of an issue as we thought. 🤷🏼‍♂️

  4. IU has too much fertile recruiting ground to ever be lateral with Baylor or Texas Tech. The coaches with the right kind of Ego would be lining up for this job. A chance to restore a once proud program. The choices of candidates won’t ever be the problem, the problem will be and has been the administration

  5. Nobody is ever going to say that publicly. My issue was with all the academic and player empowerment stuff first and he didn't get to winning until 3rd. For me as a fan, winning should be first. Players going to class and getting decent grades, as well as treating them well should be a given. I don't need the AD going through that, just tell us your #1 priority is a basketball program that compete for championships. The problem with IU is that I don't think their #1 priority is winning. Heck, the AD just told us it isn't.

  7. CJ had 25 I believe tonight. Just finished off Cathedral in what has to be the toughest sectional in the state. 5 teams ranked in top 10. Really good looking player just like Armaan was at same time. Unreal competition too.

  8. I can't even type what I want to type. I'll say this. If Dane Fife is given consideration for this position I'll be tapping out of the IU fandom. Great former player? Sure. Some coaching experience? I guess. Ready to take on this role? No. Never. Nada. Zilch.....that's all.

  9. All, I’ve shared every bit of information I’ve received to this point, I don’t know anymore than any of you of it’s legit or not, but it seems like there is something going on for sure. If it doesn’t come to be true I will still trust this source because he heard this information from a reliable source himself. Relax and let’s see what happens.

  13. And there is my #1 concern in all of this. Them goofing up yet another coaching hire. I could just totally see this bumbling administration hiring someone like an Alford, Brad Brownell, Kevin Stallings, Kevin O'Neill, Seth Greenburg or someone along those lines.

  14. This job is bigger than coaching games and practices. Baskeball is life in Indiana, and being present on campus and off campus is important (non covid). It needs a rockstar personality and a basketball mind. New AD, who is a basketball guy, Knight back everything is right....need a guy that is a go getter to make the past part of the future and flexible enough to make the future successful. IU has a huge almuni base, fan base, and media attention- need someone who loves that part, not hides from it.

  16. Get out now before rep is completely destroyed? An open job (Penn St) looks appealing? He looks beaten down so maybe hes over dealing with aspects of being the coach here. Plenty of possible reasons but you're right doesnt usually happen

  17. IU is an upgrade for Beard, Drew, Oates, Musselman, etc., but IMO the biggest reason for them not to come is simply the Big Ten. Why would you leave the Big12, SEC or PAC12 where if you're a really good coach you can almost walk into the NCAA Tournament every year, for the meat grinder that is the Big Ten? Take a guy like Mick Cronin. Everyone is saying what a great hire that ended up being for UCLA. Admittedly I haven't watched a ton of UCLA, but what I have seen they're not that much better than IU. I'm not so sure IU doesn't beat UCLA head-to-head, but the PAC12 is a joke, so the

  18. I think Glass' contract with CAM's poor record has painted the Admin into corner and they have no clue how to exit the box in which they find themselves. CAM is now a dead man walking and could yet have 3 more nails to place in the coffin if IU loses to PU, 1st game BTT, and possible NIT if bid was received. The optics for them are terrible and completely unacceptable.. They've had some cover due to Covid and no fans being in the stands. Otherwise we could have witnessed CAM and the team suffering unimaginable outrage live and on TV due to the home losses we have had this year. Dolson

  19. Yup. My other impression is that IU just moves down their list the second a guy they want says no. I realize Brad Stevens and Billy Donovan aren't coming here, but if you call Chris Beard and he says no, then call him back and up the price until he says yes. From what Chris Holtman said, he turned OSU down 3 times and they just kept calling. I dont think this administration has the backing to do that.

  21. It’s only fun to speculate because it provides a bit of hope due to the unknown. As a fan that’s ok. If the admin has intent to return to relevancy then they will go out and make it happen. If they intend to get warm and fuzzy over a glory day hire then they were the wrong person for the job. My opinion

  23. Winning cures all. You could hire some Indiana high school coach as long as he wins. Who was Brad Stevens before Butler gave him a shot? Not saying I don’t see your point because I do but just saying winning cures everything in all sports.

  24. I want to thank you for the information. When I get on the board I always look to see if you have posted. And just like you I miss Mile. He was a very special person.

  25. They also got a tougher version of the schedule than others. And Assembly Hall is not the same without fans. Yeah you could say that about other places, but I really think they win 4 more at home with a packed house. AH is head and shoulders tougher than most places when it's full. This team has had so many close games...I can't remember a season like this. Outside of a couple, every game has come down to last few minutes. This season has been a meat grinder. The team seems to be worn down. Losing close games, injuries and thinner bench are taking their toll. This is why when it's all said an

  29. Do you read what you say before clicking "Submit Reply"? Texas Tech to IU is lateral Baylor to IU is lateral Illinois to Kansas is not lateral Alabama to IU is not lateral What in the world are you talking about? Either all of those are lateral or none of those are lateral. HINT: None of those are lateral moves.

  30. I see no reason for the base not be behind any coach who is hired. Give them a chance before making a judgement on them. i think that is a problem is that fans starts with a negative thinking of a coach and will never change that thining.

  31. Fine, but Fife starting a head coaching career in Lansing would be totally different than walking into this mess. It's going to take more than a good coach to clean up this situation...unless that coach is a chosen one. Fife's family, contacts, etc. are in Michigan and they have a system that he has helped with. This team is not built like MSU and Fife has no experience building/working with anything else.

  32. I thought so initially but I’m willing to give anyone a chance. What if Fife would bring in Lewis as an assistant, possibly Cheaney? Fife can coach, is he ready for IU? Maybe we find out maybe we don’t. Willing to give anyone a chance because I thought Archie was and he wasn’t the guy. Maybe it will be an under the radar guy who brings us back!

  35. He’s had several good years and his rebuild was comparable to building the Great Wall of China. I believe this is his 3rd team he’s had that’s ranked in the top 5 in the last 4-5 years. Also has a great class coming in next year. It would all be so much easier if Brad Stevens would just commit

  36. Major rebuild there, consistency, lately changed his defense which was always his Achilles heel and since changing has taken what appears is the final step forward in his evolution as a coach

  37. I think those quotes from Dolson is being over blown. I think he is saying that if the kids are not doing well in school or are bad kids then winning that way is not worth it. I think back to Sampson's second year that even though we were winning the type of kids he had made it feel hollow. I want winning as much as anyone but not at any price. If it takes guys who don't go to class or are not representing the University in a way that is fitting then winning that way is not gratifying.

  39. I think you make those obligatory phone calls to Stevens/Donovan just to say you did, but after that you make someone like a Beard, Drew, Matta, Beilein, Musselman say yes, no matter what it takes. But I think you're right, the administration just doesn't care enough to put the effort in (like OSU repeatedly calling Holtmann). They've torpedoed the program so much, IU is much closer to Oklahoma State than it is Kansas/Duke/UK/UNC. I really hope i'm wrong and they get a home run hire, but looking back on the last +20 years, i have little to no faith that'll happen.

  42. Again, let me reiterate that those were my names that I wouldn’t be shocked about. I haven’t seen or heard of a “list” as of yet. I know some names that were mentioned but that’s just talk as of now and it wasn’t Fife or Alford. Maybe that will clear it up a little.

  45. He’s lost his will, it’s been pretty obvious the last couple weeks. He’s made plenty of money and he will get another job at a smaller level to restart his career.

  46. First sentence. He's spent his life getting to this moment only to have it ripped apart in 48 months. Save what you can and move along. Mutual decision shows there might be more things in play in terms of what myself and others have suggested. IU isn't the place as advertised. Shoot. Archie can head West...hang out with Few, win 30 games in a weak conference and be called a legend apparently.

  47. A good friend of mine who pays good money for floor seats told me today that he wouldn’t be surprised if Archie was let go after the Purdue game. He said if Archie is back next year the fans will clearly vocalize their lack of support him. That’s not something I would want to witness.

  48. Yep! Top names want the job. Interesting in podcast Evans said Crean asked him to speak to team each year. Archie and staff have never reached out. Just interesting...
