but there is no excuse for Crean acting the way he did. Verbally attacking another coach for something that happened years ago. Get a life. Crean is an ass. He was a pompous ass before this game and he was a pompous ass after the game. All his strutting up and down the sidelines is way too Napolionic for me. Just another pompous ass like Bobby Knight at the University of Indiana.

since you just became a member, you didn't see that missing the free throws was discussed. 

Old Tom Crean's possessed display after the game is certainly unusual and definitely news worthy and should be discussed.  Tom Crean acted like a complete weirdo.  It is all over the sports news and shows today, and you know it. 

And, since you are new here, I hope you find out where Bolivia is.  You would love it.

beyond the obvious sting of a loss, there seems to be a young new rivalry budding. Crean has built that program up just like Beilein has done some phenomenal things here at Michigan. Seeing as both teams should have long term success, I don't mind having a guy like Crean on the other side of the fight. Sure, it sucks when we lose, but shoot it'll make success all the sweeter when we win.

With that said, Go Blue!

If you scream allegations at someone in front of TV cameras, it really doesn't do much to apologize during a private call. It is particularly insincere to then tell the media about the alleged private apology (who knows what happened in the call) and then declare the story over. This is just spin.

At the exact same time IU's sanctions were being handed down, he was promising his "program" (Marquette) that he wouldn't be leaving for any other job. F'n clown. 3rd round... We want your blood. Badger blood first!

Coach Sore Winner, I'm sorry you were such a douchebag on national TV.

Wait a sec, I'm not sorry about the "on national TV" part.

Revised:  Coach Sore Winner, I'm sorry you're such a douchebag.

The Tom Izzo influence is taking him over.  He hates Michigan, and would never have apologized if this hadn't gone viral.  I used to respect them, but IU is now on my short list of teams I don't like very much.

I still don't get why he's so upset about what someone did to the program before he got there.  If it wasn't wrecked he never would have gotten the job.
