  1. Why is Dan Dakich openly discussing the potential of Brad Stevens taking the IU coaching job in the media? Seems inappropriate to be doing so in the middle of the season. Hey Dan, how about you demonstrate some self discipline and stop discussing Tom Crean’s potential replacements until the current season is over.

  2. That’s his job, Podunker. To think and speculate abouts basketball…especially Hoosier basketball and that involving Hoosier (as in the state) basketball. And, I don’t think he stepped over the line; there is a clear tone that the job is currently Crean’s and that it is not a given Stevens would come back even if IU opened. Think you are reading too much into mere journalistic musings.

  3. Dakich is not a journalist and will never be confused with being a journalist. I grant you that its his job to discuss all things basketball, but imagine if Mallory Senior or Lynch went on some radio/TV show and started speculating about Wilson’s potential replacement in the middle of the football season. I don’t think it would benefit Wilson or do IU Football any good. As a former IU coach, Dakich was at least insensitive. By simply participating in the discussion, Dakich comes across as coy, sniping at Crean from the bushes. And he can now be accused of trying to create gossip. It’s not a capital crime, but given his former association with IU basketball, Dakich should have declined to participate in that discussion.
