The only reason Davis got to the Final Four (by the way, I double checked and he actually took them to the championship game) is that no one knew how to coach against him at that point.<quoted text>
The way Indiana fans treated Mike Davis is a total disgrace. You can't even give him credit for reaching the NCAA finals. Perhaps you will support Tom Crean because he is a white guy.

It's funny people ask why he'd go to Indiana when they will fire him in 3 years. The same reason CEO's take jobs at Fortune 500 companies (the average span of which is under 3 years). Being fired brings about a windfall. But actually, most of these coaches are not fired but resign after negotiating a lucrative deal. Even a cheater like Sampson got a lot of money while only leaving the risk of probation behind.

Finally, to call Indiana a second rate program is humurous because how many other programs can boast 5 National Championships? UCLA, Kentucky..........

Way to bring in the race card. My family will get a big kick out of that. Next time, make sure you know who you're replying to when you insinuate a racist made the previous comment.

Why do you so called Hoosier fans despise Mike Davis? Is it because you still cling to the memories of that chair throwing bully Bobby Knight?

Well, he is better than the last 4 coaches, yes I said four, but he must be willing to reestablish the program from scratch as it is in a defunct condition now. Sanctions or not, recruiting will be tough for a while and the best one could probably want from the team the next 2 to 4 years are NIT appearances. Will the fans and alumni wait? I doubt it, but if they do, he could raise this program to upper division of Big 10, maybe.

Mike Davis could outcoach Bruce Weber while he was still in diapers.
Clearly, you are referring to Bruce Webere the famous photographer and not the coach. Otherwise, that would make you about as bright as Corky from Life Goes On

Bill, did you move to Oklahoma to take the OSU job? Always looking for the money, aren't you? I see your boy Anthony "the Fatman" Longstreet, who you gave a speaking gig to at your camp (for no other reason than he was Sherron Collins' coach) is leaving Crane. No more Public League players for you, unless you release your bagmen.

Bucknell Bill Self(ish) will soon be owned by OSU. Mr. T. Boone Pickens Jr. will offer you a lot of money for a life contract. After NC and Roy send you home to some unhappy fans, you will be sent packing. Rolaids time again!

Let's see, could it be the sub-.500 seasons, or the calling is sick on game-day...
