A friend of mine who works in Athletics told me a couple years ago the guy was really working all the former players, trying to convince them all to come down to Assembly Hall, to participate in events and support a return to the standards they felt had been missing in the Davis/Sampson era. Some of those guys had sworn off the program completely and several are in his corner now, returning to Bloomington occasionally to meet with the players. IU was in shambles when he got here and he's been a veritable Richard Simmons with his enthusiasm and determination. The guy deserves it.
Next Reds manager, second shooter. --Confirmed on Redszone.
