    I figured that. I thought you were a Crean fan? You think he's overrated too?

    No. Not at all. I just want to keep that alive so when he beats UK and/or Big 10 Championship you can remind WMR.

    When it happens, you better believe I'll be reminding WMR.

    Re: Indiana set to hire Tom Crean

    I saw a snippet in the Seth Davis story on CNNSI.COM that made me smile from ear to ear.
    "Crean spouts cliches, oozes corn and believes every word of it. His energy borders on manic, which is why it is tough to play and work for him. But his effort and intensity is always there."

    Especially the first part, but it reminded me of Terry Hoeppner.
    If he can have that type of an impact with a much easier sales job, I'll be ecstatic.

    That's cutting your nose to spite your face isn't it? If by cutting all ties to Sampson you mean getting rid of all players on the roster and holding open tryouts at the HPER.
    Ebanks is a top 20 recruit, who has no warts to this point. The fact that he's looking a Memphis shows he wants to play for a top program.

    My mistake, Gordon hasn't announced anything yet. Hutchens is reporting that he will go pro on his blog but EJ hasn't officially announced yet.

    Cutting ties w/ Ebanks just b/c he's considering Memphis now would be incredibly foolish.

    I'm quite confident Tom Crean will not be "cutting ties" with Ebanks. In fact, he's already said he plans to contact both Ebanks and Holloway as well as the other two committed signees (Roth and Pritchard).

    It's a similar reaction to UK fans saying Scotty Hopson is no good or wouldn't have fit in after he signed with UT.

    If Scotty had chosen UK, he WOULD have become a competent defensive player. Know why? Because otherwise he wouldn't have gotten to play.

    At UT he'll have no such constraints. They don't play much defense in Knoxville.

    Nowhere did I disparage Hopson's talent, nor would I ever do such a thing. He's an incredibly talented offensive player... who currently doesn't play a lick of defense.

    No, but the quote does say he wouldn't fit in at UK.

    And you, yourself, said he wasn't good defensively. How much have you seen Hopson play?

    All I'm saying is, fans of any team have a tendancy to spit venom at players who choose not to play for them.

    Ask Philly fans about JD Drew. Or Charger fans about Eli Manning.
