I'm not sure I agree. 

Coaching is a 'what have you done for me lately' business. Add to that the fact that IU fans think they're still an elite level program and I bet Thad's past success wouldn't be enough to save his job.

Yep. In my opinion they're a has been program that's still running on the fumes of the past. And their fans still think they're elite...

But to me they're not even on the same planet as schools like Kansas, Kentucky, Duke, and North Carolina.

It's funny. Speaking of the NIT, I just read that IU agreed to play in the NIT but declined to host their opening game. They claimed it was because the students are on Spring Break. But the truth was that IU fans don't give a rip about the NIT and IU officials didn't want ESPN cameras doing a game in Bloomington with a half-filled gym. 

Of course OSU's had several half-filled gym games in recent years...

I've heard Brad Stevens (not gonna happen), Steve Alford, Archie Miller, Tony Bennett (not the singer), Gregg Marshall, & Chris Mack, among others, could be candidates.

But I hate IU. I don't want IU to get a good coach. My life feels more complete when IU is terrible.

My thoughts on Harbaugh coming up with his idea for that tweet.

Harbaugh- "I'm tired of that bald four-eyed Southern Belle talking trash bout my program. I gotta do something to knock that fella down a peg or two. It's gotta be big time. It's gotta show him what's up and let him know he can't just spout off whatever he pleases...I know, I'll call him Pete...HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! That'll teach him who to mess with...Cause that's not his real name. But I'm gonna call him that. And it will be hilarious cause I'm hilarious. And everything I do is great."

Butch Jones is the king of saying things that don't need to be said.

We all understand what he meant by 'Champions of Life' stuff- sure his young men fought, and persevered, and learned and grew and etc. Okay. And yes, sure, we all get you want to recruit quality kids with good work ethics that will represent your school well. We get it. We understand. But you didn't need to say it.

It just makes you sound like a complete dope. Like you weren't good enough to win actual championships and recruit actual 5 star players.
