Opportunity


Recommended Posts

Let’s look at it this way ... this is a phenomenal opportunity for IU right now.  There are at least 10 teams in the BIG (give or take) that would LOVE to be looking for a new coach right now.  
 

Look at Iowa.  Do they think Fran will ever take them to a Final 4?  Wisconsin?  Maybe.  Outside of Michigan, O$U, MSU, and ILL ... I’m sure they’d all love to potentially hire a new leader.   Also - who knows if Howard will leave Mich for the NBA soon?  Can Holtmann take a team to the F4?  How much gas does Izzo have left?    Let’s see how Underwood does without an NBA player or two on his team.     
 

IU has a GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY RIGHT NOW.     Let’s all regroup in a week or two and take our collective temperatures.   Just because there is no news, doesn’t mean Dolson is on option 14 like Mick Cronin.   Come on fellas.

Or, maybe he is on Option 14 because IU is such a dumpster fire that no amount of money is going to bring anyone here.

Of course i jest.  No news is always the hardest thing since you have no indication of good or bad in how the process is going.  Its the hardest part about anything.  Pregancy test, blood test, Acceptance letters from schools, or who is going to get the promotion.  In the absence of information, people will speculate and since its IU, we speculate to the worst possible solution.

Either way, we will know one or another at some point in time.

Good post.  The whole conference would have to be holding their breath at the notion we hire  Beard, Muss or Oats.  Anybody who follows basketball knows what we can be and that our underperformance is largely self-inflicted.
