Very strange.
Well, you'll have that when you don't really know who the guy is until he forces himself on you. It took more exposure to reveal what a goofball Crean is, and while most goofballs are fun for sport, he is of the type that wants to upplay his accomplishments so that the whole world can see what a great coach and guy he is, which is sickening. Hang that banner, "we've" (when he really means I've) accomplished so much. Aren't "we" (when he really means I) great!
And with all the "I can put up with his annoyances because he's winning" will be what the "faithful" will use to ask for his head when the struggles come. Lather, rinse, repeat. It happens everywhere.
By the way, its all fun and games now, but we are talking about one conference championship here. And he is hailed as king. You folks are suddenly easy to please.
