    Lynch is a nice man who is not going to cheat. I dont think IU could hire someone to turn the program around its just a black hole of football.

    He is a wealthy man and does not need to coach the college game anyway so how is that a victory? He is a great coach and will probably be a head coach in the NBA sooner rather than later. IU was stupid to hire him and even though I am an IU fan they got what they deserved.

    Does Lynch suck as a head coach? Of course. And he'll be gone soon.
    Look for the new AD to try to land someone of Crean's abilities.
    I have even heard Kelly mentioned at Nick's, which as a UC fan leaves me cringing.
    Hep was the man for the job he would have had IU football back to the level of when Coach Mallory had them in lower teir bowl games year after year. I still remember 1986 when IU beat both Michagan and tOSU.

    The victory is keeping him out of the college game. That is the victory.

    They had one but he passed on to the great beyond.

    It's painful to watch your alma mader look like a JV squad out there, but they've done the right thing. It's really impossible to not be excited about the future.

    I'll be happy if they win 10 games...and hopefully a miracle win over Purdue as well.

    It's really interesting to hear people in Bloomington talk about this team. They have come to accept the right off that this year will be in exchange for the hope that Crean will build a team they can be proud of.

    He's already built a team I can be proud of. My hope is he continues to build the right way and we end up rooting for a contender in a few years.

    It would be quite a story if Cronin and Crean both succeed in creating strong programs built around young men who the schools could actually be proud of.

    What a concept.

    Verdell Jones is questionable for tonight's game with Wake Forest, according to Crean. He went back to class yesterday and attended practice though so the injury isn't serious. That's good news.

    While the highlights for IU fans have been minimal so far, it was a beautiful thing last night to see the Boilers get spanked by Duke. The next best thing to a IU victory is a PU loss.

    That was fun to watch. Duke looks pretty good this year.


    I agree with BRM. I am watching the IU - Wake game right now. This is the first of I've seen of them due to the fact that I just moved to Texas, and I can say that they are a fun team to watch and I have the utmost confidence that Crean will build a strong program that we can be proud of.

    I think Matt Roth is my new favorite player for IU.
