    Purdue post game

    How about when he basically said that people who donate $100 really don’t get an opinion or their opinions don’t matter or something like that....I think it was a couple years back, on Indy Talk radio or a TV interview, when people started calling, with fervor, for crean’s dismissal. I lost all respect for him after that...

    The Bench...

    Thanks for your opinion even though I respectfully disagree with it. To me, if you have players that refuse to buy in and won’t listen to a word you say, playing them only makes the problem worse and potentially more widespread.....

    The Bench...

    In my honest opinion, yes, the way Archie coaches is soft. As for drastic changes, no I didnt see any last night. I did see better effort but that should be an expectation, not a change. Everything else was status quo, including the performance of the two guys you mentioned. Lastly, I’m not mad, I sold my tickets for $150 each a few weeks back which made me happy....

    Ha....okay. Sorry for the honesty.

    The Bench...

    Aren’t these Archie’ players? Ones that he recruited and signed? If so, then why doesn’t he play them? Instead he plays guys that are considered Crean’s players....all I hear is that Archie needs more time to get his players and build a culture. Well, while maybe not a full set, he does have players that he recruited that he refuses to give a chance. I think we just need to call it like it is....right now, no matter whose players he has, Archie can’t beat anyone. His offense stinks horribly, three point defense is atrocious, turnovers and missed free throws are the only consistencies I have seen in his teams, effort and intelligence are usually lacking and lastly, he is afraid to get in anyone’s grill or hold them accountable for any of the above. He is IU’s version of John Groce....

    The Bench...

    Yet, this coach continues to reward them with playing time. Archie is soft and apparently afraid to make the drastic changes he alluded to...
  7. Wait, we lost last night? After listening to Archie's press conference, with all the praise he heaped on the players, I figured we won going away.....both football and basketball have become a laughingstock in the B10.....

    Mcbob was supposed to be that guy...hasn’t worked out this year

    "Drastic changes"

    The drastic change was mcbob coming back and then not playing the guys that never play anyway....it was all just a sham to keep the fans at bay for another few days.

    I was thinking the same thing. Zebra was pretty emphatic about it so maybe he was outside of it

    "Drastic changes"

    He could have played Fred Glass for all I care....just sit the malcontents and put an end to this crap

    "Drastic changes"

    And yet Archie, who is the one in charge, refuses to make any significant changes....sorry but he is calling the shots and allocating the minutes so he has the ability to force a change....at least in effort and attitude

    "Drastic changes"

    Why is he just saying this now? These performances, with the exception of MSU, have been the norm since Christmas....

    Minnesota Game Thread

    The only coach to have a team worse than this and turn it around by seasons end was Norman Dale.....Archie ain’t Norman Dale

    Minnesota Game Thread

    Justin Smith has already shown that he has no interest in being at this game...why not oblige and let him rot on the bench? Archie is the main culprit in all of this mess due to his unwillingness to hold anyone accountable for their poor play and crappy attitude

    Free Jake Forrester !!! Fitzner adds no value at this point

    Archie and this staff had six days to prepare and this is what we get?

    Archieball is very hard to watch. No screens, no ball movement, no flow, just dribble around and hope something opens up. I don’t care who’s players you have, this offense won’t beat anyone

    Thanks for the perspective and I hope you’re right on this one....

    I’m all for it, especially if Glass goes too. I have seen enough of this crew to know that, if allowed to stay, we will be no better after year 4 and beyond than we are now....

    They are all Archie’s after two years.....people need to stop with the excuses for him.

    By not playing them....if they can’t figure it out, play someone who can. Archie holds noone accountable for stupid mistakes.....he is in way over his head.
