I wish the team would have just boycotted the season like they threatened to. They have been a completed disaster since KS was let go. Losing to Penn St? When Penn St is missing their top two players? Dan Dakich will be lucky to get a job coaching a YMCA rec league after this disaster. Let's just get this season over with so we can get on to the rebuilding and healing process.

Sampson was a cheater. He deserved to go. Now let's make the best of it and win the Big Ten Tourney.

The whole team is trying to penalize "the man" for getting rid of their Messiah Sampson.

Give us all a break. You're there on a scholarship. Do the work or get the hell out.

By the way, anyone know what the team's GPA's are? Bet that's a read in itself.

Healing is BS? You don't think this program is damaged? Take off the rose colored glasses, Kevin. This program is in complete disarray. I'm not saying the players need healing, because I think the players ought to be playing for the name on the uniform, not for the head coach. But as far as the program goes...it is hurting bad, and with upcoming NCAA sanctions and recruit defections, it is going to get worse before it gets better. Yes, I think healing is EXACTLY what this program needs right now. And maybe some CPR too.

Don't know what Ellis did..they could have used his defense and rebounding today. I hope that he is proud of letting his team down. Grow up or be gone Mr. Ellis..not much patience with bad actors in this forum.

Maybe he watched his team lose with Sanctions boy at his house. Hope he is the first out the door when the new coach comes in. Leave him at home from here on out and let Taber play. Taber showed more heart, desire and want to win for the team then Ellis has ever shown. Good riddance Ellis.

After watching I.U. play today and the non shooting ability of Eric Gordon, they need all the help they can get. And you can't blame the coach! He can only draw up the play, the player has to make the basket. I don't think Gordon is ready for the NBA.

Nice post jackass! Sure, it was a bad loss, but by your logic Tom Izzo should be out of a job too.

Who really cares about their GPA? Either they are eligible and play, or they're not and they don't. Get real, most of them are there just to play basketball, not get an education.

Ellis, if your ultimate goal is to get to the NBA and make the big money, you won't get there sitting out of games! It's OK to be loyal to your old coach but remember the big picture and keep your eye on the prize! Childishness won't hurt anybody but yourself! Coach Sampson will be fine! Don't piss away your opportunity to make it to the big-time because of misguided loyalty!

Mr. Galt,

I think you have placed the blame for this "disaster" on the wrong person. You seem to fault Coach Dakich. Now, I don't know if the man is a good coach at the IU-level or not (and, before anyone says anything about his previous coaching gigs, I remind you that those were not at schools where it was easy to get recruits to come. The truth is, we just don't know what he could do at an Indiana-caliber school: he has never had the opportunity).

Regardless of Coach Dakich's coaching ability, he cannot go out on the floor and play defense. I maintain that there are some players who are no longer giving their all, or playing with the same intensity that they played for with Kelvin. I will not name names, but I think that there are only a couple players still giving their all. The fault, Mr. Galt, is with them, and not with Coach Dakich.

You are right ... and isn't that kind of sad? Most of them will not play NBA ball, nor will they sign multi-million dollar contracts. What will they do with their lives? They have squandered an opportunity to get an education because they are 'just there to play basketball.' Say whatever you will about Coach Knight's temper and treatment of his players and others, but he at least understood that the top priority for a college-athlete should be to get an education. His former players are productive members of society today. I worry that may not be the case for some of Kelvin's recruits.

If that's true, then leave all of them off the team. Sure, their athletic ability gets them a chance at a college education, and that should be their primary focus. Remember when IU basketball players went to class, graduated, and made a positive contribution to their communities? That all went away when Herbert, Greenspan and company stooped low enough to hire Sampson.

Man oh man..the place is falling apart in Bloomington, a bb player suspended, the QB suspended, the head bb coach resigned or fired what ever one wnats to call it and then you lose to Penn State. We certainly had our difficulties at Purdue in the past and I guess that black cloud has moved to the south.
