  1. Really? No one cares that IU is finally playing up to recruits and likely sprucing up HH (with a host) and likely more individualization/personalization

  2. Did you drop the sentence from the Athletic Department press release where the first 500 HH attendees will receive a 30 second video of Coach TC’s well tanned belly button moved to appear to be lip-synching… “Indiana …Frangipana…Hail to Old IIIIIIUUUUUUU”…as 100 vestal virgins dressed in flowing translucent(but not tranparent) robes surround the visiting prospects and cover them with thrown crimson rose petals…

    The NCAA also released a statement this morning stating that it is now studying what constitutes a ‘vestal virgin’ in the case of Indiana and whether it is a primary, a secondary or a fragrant (flagrant?)violation of its Code Book.

  3. CTC just twittered that “he always tells the truth” so I expect the NCAA to never investigate IUBBALL during his tenure here. Is this guy for real?

  4. Any word on TV coverage for those of us out of state? Big Ten Network has had coverage in the past, but I don’t see it listed on the site.

  5. How about a sworn statement and a certified lie detector test based on CTC’s latest tweet? This would certainly put it to rest.

  6. Fred Glass- For the good of IU, please curtail coaches twitter privileges– have them study the NCAA rules during their twitter time.

  7. Get real, give it a rest already. You keep whining the same old crap and nobody wants to hear it. Do you think if you whine enough, we will all eventually just say “you’re right, let’s fire Crean”?!?

    It’s obvious that you already hated the guy before this incident, and you will continue to hate him no matter how this incident plays out. You are entitled to your opinion but spamming these message boards is getting annoying to the true IU fans.

    Barring any new, MAJOR violations, Crean will be here for a couple more years at a minimum. He’s bringing in the number 1 recruiting class next year and he absolutely earned that time. Once we have some grade A talent in here, he can truly be judged as to his coaching ability. Right now, he’s not going anywhere, so if you really are an IU fan then support the team and the team coach.

  8. For the sake of All That Is Good In The Universe let’s all get behind ‘get real’s idea and take away TC’s twitter privileges. Some people just should not be allowed to instantly transmit every impulsive thought to the whole world. Tommy, dude….we love ya, but sleep on your thoughts and then run them by someone with good sense (your wife comes to mind) before you post them.

  9. From Catch 22:”Major Major had lied,and it was good.He was not really surprisedthat it was good…Had he told the truth, he would have found himself in trouble.Instead he had lied, and he was free to continue his work.”
