Even three years ago when Purdue only won 9 games, we still did not complain about Coach Painter. Purdue fans knew he had class and was going to turn our program around with team play....and he did. Purdue fans rallied behind him and he is starting to deliver.

To IU fans: Sometimes it pays off to follow the rules and stay classy.

I have not giving up on Sampson but if we are not better in his forth year he needs to go.

I don't understand that. He had no record coming in to make us IU fans think he was any good. Add to his lack of coaching ability that fact he has no moral accountability, he doesn't recruit kids that intend to graduate, and his players don't leave prepared to play in the NBA and you have a guy who has no business being paid by the state of Indiana to be on staff at a major university. Why wait four years? Fire his sorry behind and Greenspans......now.

I'll bet a guy as smart as Carmody has a buy out/opt out claus in his contract at NW. His Princeton,and to a lesser degree NW credintals are impressive,AND HE WOULD NEVER,NEVER CHEAT. If I were Greenspan and I.U.,I'd go after Carmody. Carmody is a Bob Knight,with out the attitude. I believe the NCAA sanctions,penalties and probations associated with the rules violations,will be Sampson's undoing.
We SHALL see!
i keep hoping majerus will end up coaching iu.

Looks like IU did indeed *paste* Northwestern.

The Big 10 Title goes through Bloomington this year.

Why should IU quit going to their 1-2 punch when an opponent can't stop them? Only a cupcake college fan would suggest such a thing.

IU will not win the Big 10. It will be Wisconsin first, Purdue, OSU, MSU and then IU. IU is roadkill the rest of the season.

I am a true Hoosier fan and I agree with your comments. This team has a lot of talent and yes they play too much one on one: We need to start driving to the basket more, make better passes, cut down on the turnovers, improve their concentration, and quit standing around. No one comes to the ball to help out. I didn't expect IU to win every game and I think that Sampson has done a good job with the team. This team will improve. Go IU!!

I am certain Kelvin Sampson could use the advise from an unemployed nurse.

12 point win over lowely Northwestern?? Very little heart or energy from the sinking Hoosiers.
My source close to IU says Sampson and the team both know-or highly expect-that his firing is coming at season's end. Might explain why he looks to have lost interest in his job and lost
his team. He knows his short tenure in Bloomington will be ending in about 6 weeks. My source says he built a nice house in Bloomington too-ouch!
My guess is that your "source" is a warm, dark, stinky place well within arm's reach....

I would guess that IU fans should be all New England fans. Both coaches have the same regard for rules.

I certainly hope you're correct. That won't be soon enough, but it'll certainly be better than later.

I can tell you must be one of PU's most intelligent fans, you have great use of the english language and you have contributed all the tangible things to this this discussion. Your head must be as big has that Purdue Pete guy, like I said earlier get over yourself. i don't understand if you PU fans loathe IU so much why do you use them as a measuring stick for your accomplishments? Because it doesn't go the other way do you play sports up there?

Just contribute something!!!!!!!!!! All you do is call people names and make unsubstantiated comments. That's all I'm saying. Call people names if you want, but make a point too.

I haven't called you any names but the same doesn't go for you, you seem to think you can call people names all you want. If what I say bothers you so much just ignore it. We do have freedom of speech in this country and I will take full advantage of it. I nothing more to say to you!!!!!!!!!! I do have 1 question for you, why do you spend so much time on the IU article comments? Just for your information if my time was worth nothing you would never catch me reading or commenting on anything about PU sports.
