Glad to hear it. Was kinda worried about them making a play for Muss.

They were probably trying to, but ran into our issue with Beard. Muss keeps winning. It's driving up his price and decreasing the chance that you'll be able to pull him away, and that's if you even had a chance to begin with.

Indiana isnt as good of a job as many would like to believe.

Similar to Nebraska football, they should of tolerated the "mediocrity" of final four appearances for a few more years or not made back to back to back "bad hires" who couldn't sustain that level of mediocrity.

Once we made the Elite 8 then it was over for Indiana. They needed us to lose to ORU but now Muss will get a huge pay raise. Indiana probably doesn't want to get in a bidding war over a coach that has a limited NCAA tournament resume right now.

They weren’t waiting on Muss. They’ve been struggling to hire a coach. Thad Matta took it but failed a physical so they were back to square one.

They never should have fired Tom Cream. That was a bad move and it probably hurt future coaching searches. With his resume, no way he would be fired here.

They have unrealistic expectations and they are living in the past.

re: IU to name head coach.
Crean has proven to be a very weak head coach over the last 5+ yrs. They were right to fire him, but replacing him WITH Archie Miller was just a terrible move.

They're stuck in the same stupid mindset that Alabama was for 20 yrs after Bryant and Michigan still is. They want some alum or someone with IU connections instead of just trying to hire the best guy available.

I still don't know how they didn't hire Porter Moser. Same basic recruiting footprint and a proven tournament and program head coach. He also could have brought a couple Loyola players with him as grad transfers for immediate eligibility, including Krutwig, and instantly injected life into the program.

I would have made him tell me no, then up the offer again, before moving away from him.

IU is so similar to Arkansas over the last 20 years. Bad hires and bad program management will just keep you as a rudderless ship chasing ghosts of days gone by.

I mean that is really easy to say in hindsight but he was the very hot name at the time

Maybe Porter has finally turned the corner in his coaching career but he has a very meh history before the last few years. Took him 13 years of CBB coaching to make the tournament. Before his final four year, he had never lead a team to finish in the top four of their conference. That is a long time.

He seems to have finally figured something out with the defense they run though and he is still fairly young.

Porter won’t ever leave Loyola. A catholic boy from Chicago with rich in-laws. He can coach there, face no pressure while recruiting Chicago, bang his rich cute wife, and retire a legend.

He will be just like his mentor Majerus except no going to USC only to resign 5 days later.

IU basketball is in the same state of purgatory as Nebraska football.

Stagnant, living on a reputation from 25 years ago. No modern differentiator. Bad coaching hires. Poor recruiting. No longer a consistent, reliable factory for professional athletes.
