About half the number of exclamation points in an average Craig Hoops post.  May he RIP

The more I think about it, the more I think Archie needs to take a look at Tony Bennett and Brad Underwood and really reevaluate his approach.  Bennett lost to a 16 seed in the tournament, overhauled

I dont see anyway that beard would come to iu. He is a Texan, had the UNLV job and before he started backed out to go to Texas Tech. The guys family is in texas and he made it really clear several years back that texas is where he wants to be.

You also have to factor in that the guy worked with coach knight right after he left iu. Do you think he heard anything good about iu when we all know how hostile knight was against the university for so many years?

People seem to think this guy has iu ties because he worked with coach knight. He has zero ties to us and a lot of ties to where he currently is. Imho we have a better chance at Brad Steven's than we do Chris Beard.

The primary  reason would be to honor the legacy of RMK and be the guy to restore the tradition. No idea if he’d leave the State of Texas. You’d have to break the bank, but after what Cuban sat through today, I could see him contributing 

Some posters just aren't thinking rationally.  They are posting as everyone thinks like them.  When was the last time Cuban made any noise whatsoever in a coaching change/ decision?  Cuban contributing large amounts of money is brought up every time there is a  coaching issue.

I would love Beard as well. I just think we have a better shot at Pearl. I think he could win here fairly quickly too. I realize his age might be an issue but we need a quick fix here before it gets REALLY bad. If a quick fix is even possible anymore at this point. This is so very frustrating...

I thought it was said years ago that Cuban would pony up if we hired his guy. Is that not correct?

The next hire absolutely has to be a proven commodity.  No up and comer who might succeed.  Pearl would give us 10-12 great years and restore our blue blood status.  After that we could hire who we want.  And he’d be inheriting an NCAA tourney caliber team with TJD coming back.  No rebuild whatsoever.  He would also land Lander.

We are literally 15-8 and currently sitting in the Tournament picture with winnable games ahead of us and you guys are just giving up and saying go hire Beard?? Like you realize this is why our fan base gets called crazy! First off no disrespect to anyone because if you look at my past posts I’m a very calm guy that just likes to add Input where I feel to! 

Second, I was extremely upset yesterday with the level of effort and execution!! Felt sick to my stomach yesterday it was so bad so I get the frustration but holy crap calling for his head is ridiculous!! Like literally he still has CTC players as the leaders and what are they doing they are playing like the crean guys did towards the end! You can lead a horse to water but it still has to be the one to drink!! Archie has been doing all he could and some of the guys just seem not to be getting it but like look at his guys he’s brought in!! Trayce is a beast, Joey is a stud, Armaan is going to be a great four year player, Jerome will be a great scorer, Race will be a solid role player for us, etc. like we have Wins over Florida St, Michigan St, and Ohio State all in the top 25 in the Net. Winnable games ahead of us! All good things as so many of the posters have said,  takes time!! Don’t be talking about hiring other guys when we literally are 15-8 and have winnable games ahead and in the tournament picture currently. 

Third, Archie has wonderful connections with the coaches in Indiana which Crean didn’t, and that is huge!! He has got the last two Mr. Basketball in Indiana and Leal has a chance to be the third with real options in the 21’ class! 

Again no disrespect but come on guys!! WE HAVE A WINNING RECORD and have seen that we can play well!! If we miss the tournament then fine bring out the pitch forks but we have games to play still! Think about last year and how well we finished the season maybe Archie can light that fire again!

IU has a winning record because they played the weakest OOC schedule they could have played.

You lost me at Joey is a stud. It’s one thing to lose, but the way the team has failed to compete speaks volumes. I hope it can turn around... I really do.

Joey has been one of our most consistent players just cuz he had a bad game against Purdue doesn’t mean anything. Everyone has bad games

I’ll check back in a week.  

Haha not gonna lie that made me chuckle! Right now we are 15-8 with good wins and no bad losses (besides arguing possibly the 20 point loss to Wisconsin, I could hear that argument). If we win out at home and just steal one on the road we end 21-10 and I say we are in the Tournament as an 10-11 seed!

That’s fine but we still are sitting in the tournament picture are we not?

I don't think anyone is suggesting we fire Archie mid-season. I also, as stated earlier, think it would be foolish to fire Archie for anything other than a certain winner. There aren't many of those, but there are some. Maybe we can't get them to come here, but I hope it's looked into.

He has his place but definitely not a “stud” in his 4th year of college ball.

choops died?  Really?  He wasn't that old.  😳

Sorry to say it is true. JaybobHoosier, kindly,  sent me a p.m. a year or so ago. And I posted it on Hoosier Sports Nation.  You must have missed it.  Understand.

The more I think about it, the more I think Archie needs to take a look at Tony Bennett and Brad Underwood and really reevaluate his approach.  Bennett lost to a 16 seed in the tournament, overhauled his offense, and won a title the next year.  Underwood started 26-39 at Illinois, and last off-season decided to overhaul his entire offensive and defensive approach.  He’s on record saying that stupid pressure defense they played, with the constant fouling, was never going to work in the Big Ten.  He changed his approach, and now Illinois is in position to win the conference.

Watching our bigs constantly hedge and get burned on defense, and watching the same high pick and roll and telegraphed post feeds fail over and over on offense, is the definition of insanity.  Archie has next year to save his job, and he’s going to have largely the same team.  If he doesn’t change up his system, he’s doomed.
