BTW, my prediction for the Marquette job: Tod Kowalczyk.
When all is said and done more is said than done.
In other IU news, Eli Holman said he will make a decision on his future at Indiana by next Wednesday. Jamarcus Ellis wants to be on the team. No word from Bassett yet. It will be interesting how Crean handles these two.
“I never had plans to leave,” Ellis said. “It was just – Dakich being the head coach – we didn’t see eye-to-eye on things, so I thought the best thing for me was to part ways and get my academics right.
“I never left the team, I quit,” he added. “So there really wasn’t that we got kicked off, we quit. I’m looking forward to still being a Hoosier. I never had intentions on leaving – that wasn’t even an option.”
Thomas agreed, also saying Ellis and Bassett quit the team instead of Dakich telling them to leave.
“They went with what they believed in,” Thomas said. “They thought something wasn’t right, so they stood up for themselves. They came to me before that and wanted something to change.”
