    Where would you rank the Crean hire on your list of candidates?

    Honestly, I didn't think they had any chance to get him. I would have had him in the top 3 if I knew he were a "legit" candidate.

    Interesting note from Devin Ebanks' AAU coach.

    Lawrence McGugins, the AAU coach and trusted adviser to top recruit Devin Ebanks, believes Indiana made a solid hire by grabbing Crean. Hes won in a major conference, one of the top conferences, he told me today. Hes a good catch, a great coach. He knows what hes doing in running a program all around. Ebanks is waiting to hear from Crean before moving forward with his decision. The 6-9 wing from New York City is also considering Memphis, Rutgers, Texas and West Virginia.

    Wow, if they're able to keep Ebanks from going to Memphis that would be massive.

    Crean is going to have one pretty big selling point right now - playing time. And lots of it. Of course, a kid like Ebanks is probably going to get plenty of minutes anywhere he goes so who knows.

    I'm a long time Marquette fan. Crean works hard, is a good promotor, and for the most part, his kids like him. His problem was that in 9 years he never recruited a decent big man.

    An ok hire for Indiana but you really missed the boat by not getting Tony Bennett. In the meantime, Marquette now has a top 25 team with 4 returning staters, and no coach.

    Re: Indiana set to hire Tom Crean

    Admittedly, I don't know much about the recruiting class for next year. Can someone fill me in (or point me to a site that fills me in) about the recruits that were in place for next year, how they rank and what their status is at the moment exactly?

    Let him go play for that oily, slick, snake oil salesman. Cut ties with all things Sampson and start all over.
    I was in the ORG once, best 6 months of my life.

    I don't think they missed the boat at all. Bennett said he flat wasn't interested. There wasn't much IU could do about that.

    Eric Gordon announced he's definitely going pro. No surprise there.

    I'm stunned that he wouldn't want to be coached by Overrated Crean.

    S'alright. Now he'll go on the play for Coach Overrated Dunleavy.

    It didn't matter who the coach was. He was going pro regardless. That decision was made before he ever set foot in Bloomington.

    I know. I just wanted to work in an overrated reference.
