Suits are not conducive to comfort, especially as related to tucked in shirts. I adjust like this several times a day at work, and I'm not pacing the sidelines of a basketball court. I don't have that problem with my custom made shirts though. Maybe Tom should consider ordering some.

My sympathies to Tom Crean. Still an incompetent ass, though.

Am glad.... that crap he pulled on Meyer, was, the worst... and not only grossly inappropriate, but childish, unsportsmanike, etc.   Major tort, and now he got what he deserved.

Be let out of their LOI for baseketball? Indiana signee Clifton Moore would be perfect for our offense as a stretch power-forward. Similar to UM's current recruit Eli Brooks, he's from PA and can shoot it lights out. Also, Michigan was recruiting another one of their signees - Justin Smith but never offered. We have a spot open in our recruiting class and we're not getting Bamba.

Smart move for IU, bad for the rest of the B1G. 

Crean had a hard ceiling there, their 12-13 team was dripping with NBA talent and got bounced by the same Cuse team we beat in the Final 4.

That's still a very appealing job for many sitting P5 coaches.

But who is Indiana basketball's Jim Harbaugh?


Jim Harbaugh wouldn't be at Michigan if it weren't for his lifelong love of Michigan.  I mean if Harbaugh had gone to Stanford for college we might not even like him...  To think that someone of Harbaugh's caliber would leave the NFL for Michigan without the deep personal and emotion connection that he has here is naive IMO.

The obvious answer is Brad Stevens, but I don't see any way they land him.

But they should land a good coach.  Alford is a possibility (mistake in my opinion).  There's Archie Miller.  Greg Marshall.  Chris Mack.  They are a bit unlucky in that there isn't a Pitino on the market this year to fall into their lap, but they'll get someone good.  The dream scenario would be Billy Donovan realizing that the job he signed up for at OKC isn't one he's going to enjoy anytime in the near future and taking a return to the college ranks.

It is.  Indiana is a good basketball producing state, and there's national pull because it's Indiana.  Yes, the Big Ten is a competitive league, but so is pretty much every big time league (maybe excluding the SEC).  They also just redid all their facilities.

Finding the right coach isn't as easy as many seem to think.

However, Indiana is a good gig. Grand tradition and history, rabid fan base, great arena atmosphere, and fertile recruiting ground - both in Indiana and nearby Chicago.

Expectations are high there, but they have a history of putting up with shenanigans (see: Knight, Bobby).  

I'm talking about behavior, not necessarily recruiting - Indy and their fanbase will put up with a lot as long as the team is winning (see: MSU).

A good hire would be great for the B1G, but will make things that much more challenging for Michigan. Personally, I like when the conference is strong.

Speaking of Tom Crean, a friend of mine just messaged me with this news, along with the .gif of Wagner running him over. I chuckled, took a sip of my coffee, and before I knew it, three minutes had passed. I just kind of spaced out, mezmerized by the glorious event taking place on the screen. 

'Later, Mr. Crean. You will be missed!

Tom for one reason and one reason only......the dude has some of the funniest and most entertaining facial expressions in the B1G, as you can see throughout this thread - TC you will be missed.

It's not Beilein's style


but I wish an opposing team's player would run into him while he's on the court and see what the refs do.  Another option: pass him the ball.  To his midsection if you're feeling charitable, at his head if you want to start a fight.  I've been hit in the back of the head by a basketball on the court and it's humiliating.
