Being an Indiana guy, I'm naturally an IU basketball fan. I grew up with Bob Knight in the era when Indiana was among the elites of the sport. Fast forward a couple of decades, and we are anything but elite!
Coach Crean is an admirable man and has done a great job of making IU a successful program again after the disgrace of the Kelvin Sampson era. However, I'm afraid he's taken us as far as he can. We have two Big Ten titles to show for his efforts, but nothing better than some Sweet Sixteen appearances in the tournament. And this year? What a train wreck. We are headed for the NIT, if that.
My allegiance is at its end. If we have any hope to see IU as a national powerhouse in the future, Crean has to go.
