Running God hates the Hoosiers thread

Discussion in 'Sports and News' started by Starving Journalist, Apr 1, 2008.

  1. First Kelvin Sampson is fired. Then Devin Ebanks decommits. Then Bennett turns down the head coaching job. Now there are rumors Jamarcus Ellis and Armon Basset are being thrown off the team. This leaves the Hoosiers with DeAndre Thomas, Jordan Crawford, Eli Holman and three guys who are probably only there to bring up the GPA of the team.

    IU's a football school now.
     
  3. Oh yeah I forgot to mention that Kellen Lewis is suspended indefinitely and might be in deep shit (aka not coming back).

    I'm an IU grad and perfectly happy that Sampson got fired. Ellis and Bassett were thrown off the team, Indy Star has it.

    The program is just a mess right now. I'm not holding my breath for it to get better anytime soon, and frankly if it sucks for a few years and some of the idiotic fans leave for good, I can live with that.

    If running threads are declared to have jumped the shark, this one would be Fonzie on the water skis.

    Well, yeah, but he made it pretty easy for them to do it. That's the real tragedy in the Bob Knight Story, I think.

    One thing is for sure, unless I missed it, you never got a whiff of NCAA trouble from the General.

    Knight's one thing, but people forget that Mike Davis coached the Hoosiers to the NCAA finals, losing to Maryland. And when they gave Dakich the interim coach tag after cutting ties with Sampson -- only because he played at IU -- even though he's the assistant who made the phone calls while an honorable man like McCallum was nowhere to be found in those NCAA violations, well, that was another black mark.

    Mike Davis was an awful coach.
