    I think he was around $1.5M per at Marquette but I'm not positive on that.

    The real question is, will IU be hung with anymore NCAA sanctions? If they are, it might not matter who they hired if they are hamstrung.

    I think Sean Miller is going to get some consideration for the Marquette job. They probably got a good buyout from Crean, so they can afford to spend some money to get the right coach.

    I've never met Sean Miller but my guess is he wouldn't leave Xavier unless he was offered the Pitt job, his alma mater. As an X fan, I hope it's true. Glad to see IU went elsewhere! He's getting close to a million at Xavier and a job at Marquette seems to me to be a lateral move at best.

    It's hard to be too mad about this. While there are other coaches I would've preferred, I think given IU's bad situation it would've been too hard to pull off an elite coach or a really hot up and comer.

    X to Marquette is not a lateral move. Better confernece, better facilities and more resources. Not to mention more money.

    Good hire for IU. Crean did well at Marquette and plays an exciting style of basketball. This should make Rick Pitino happy. The relationship between the two was far from cordial.

    Given the top returning player is likely to Kyle Taber and that they were discussing Lon Kruger and Mike Montgomery.

    I'm ecstatic with this hire.

    By the way Wily Mo, I think all coaches are overrated to an extent, but if you can get a coach who sets high standards for the program and continually wins. I think you have to be happy.

    From the A-10 to the Big East? Sounds like a step down to me.

    I've never been a fan of Tom Crean. He did manage to score a recruit out of Chicago by the name of Dwayne Wade, but his teams rely more on pressure defense to win, aka Tubby Smith. Thats the reason a lot of Kentucky fans wanted no part of Crean when his name surfaced.

    He is a good coach, don't get me wrong. His style of play will fit the Big Ten, but I just wonder how he can recruit. Indiana needs a coach who can sell ice to eskimos and I don't think they did that. If Ebanks decides to stay, I may change my mind.

    Come now, IU is down but still a premier program.

    He also recruited Dominic James out of Richmond, Indiana who is a pretty solid player.

    I still don't think it's enough of a step up to make Miller want to leave X.
