Does Lynch suck as a head coach? Of course. And he'll be gone soon.
Look for the new AD to try to land someone of Crean's abilities.
I have even heard Kelly mentioned at Nick's, which as a UC fan leaves me cringing.
Hep was the man for the job he would have had IU football back to the level of when Coach Mallory had them in lower teir bowl games year after year. I still remember 1986 when IU beat both Michagan and tOSU.
