Crean plays by the rules... Something neither Sampson nor Greenspan seemed to care about ! Hopefully Greenspans days are numbered too !!!!!!

how many of you aren't going to be happy until Bob Knight comes back? Get over it, Crean is a GREAT hire!

Before you criticize the hiring of the new coach i think as true hoosier fans we should give him a chance.You never know what will happen.The ones that criticize the hiring will be the ones that jump on the band wagon if he takes the hoosiers to the next step.

WHO? This so called blue ribbon panel is a farce. I.U has gone from one of the most respectable basketball programs in the country to one of the most troubled in the country, all in a few short years. They need to clean house starting with the athletic director and working down to the president!

As Bill Clinton would say, "Chill out". To the skeptical ones, Crean will prove to be a great one for IU. Give him a few years and you'll see.

I'm surprised Indiana finally got a coach that knows how to recruit Indiana players and how to get to the NCAA tournament.

Well hopefully this means integrity and respectability will be re-established in the program.

I think that Crean is a good second choice after Tony Bennett, but $2,000,000 a year? Wow!

Please make the entire recording of the Crean news conference available on your website. If it now I can't access it.
Is it hidden from me some how?

Does Hoosier Fan, Former Hoosier Fan, uhoh, and Pacer Pride have any sense or basketball knowledge. Apparently not. What a bunch of ridiculous comments from the peanut gallery. If you are true IU fans, you should be ahppy that they were able to hire a person with impeccable history. Not an inkling of NCAA trouble, I can't find anything about his players being arrested for anything, etc. Please try watching some basketball this coming year and find out why this was a good choice. As far as those who insinuate that they are former fans, so be it. Glad you are former since you can't support the university through some tough times. See ya, wouldn't want to be ya. Don't jump on the bandwagone when he wins which I think will likely be his first year.

Thank you for stealing an average coach from us. I tourny win in the last 5 years, he only made the Final 4 because he had DWade. Look at what happened in the Stanford loss. Everyone knew the ball was going to Lopez(it had the previous 10 times), but he still did not double him.

Indiana U has a proud BK history and should expect a title contender, you wont get that with Crean.

Good Luck,

Crean's speech today was inspirational. Does anyone know if there were any current players in the audience?
