That's why Crean isn't now, and never will be, a great coach. Great coaches rebuild immediately. It took Pitino one year to get UK back on track after the Sutton fiasco. Calipari did it in just a couple months. Crean isn't that kind of coach and isn't that kind of personality. He has to rely on Indiana kids wanting to play for the state school, because top recruits around the country don't have IU or Crean on their radar. He better hope the home state AAU pipeline doesn't dry up.
