Tom Crean is creepy

Tom Crean may have just out-creeped himself. This afternoon, the Indiana coach accidentally sent out this tweet to his followers:

@TomCrean: I am doing great. I have been thinking about you alot since last weekend. A whole lot. How are you doing?

The tweet, obviously meant to be a DM, was quickly deleted and followed up with:

I don’t think it’s just your wife and daughter laughing at you, Tom.

    Does it creep anyone else out that the way he texts/tweets recruits sounds exactly like the way someone might text a hookup?

    HOW is Indiana landing recruits!? This man speaks to them like lovers. He will not relate well once generation y recruits run out and he faces the brute defensive shells of those in generation z.

    What recruit tweets a coach and asks them how they are doing? And what coach says they have been thinking about them alot since last weekend. “A WHOLE LOT”

    This doesn’t pass any reasonable smell test.

    Luckily, the NCAA passed a rule which allows coaches unlimited contact with recruits via social media/texts. Jesus, what is Tom Crean thinking? He must really be desperate after that Sweet 16 beat down.

    Cut @tomcrean some slack. He’s still trying to figure out how this dub ya, dub ya, dub ya, thing works.

    Everyone is laughing at him because he spelled “a lot” wrong. HAHAHAHAHAAHHAHAHAHHAHA!

    That sounded a little too much like Sandusky. EWW!

    I’m more creeped out that a millionaire that works at a place of higher education can’t spell “a lot” correctly.

    “Thanks Limpie…been thinking a lot about you too. Don’t worry about that little “failure” you had the other night while we were watching Team USA and Anthony Davis block all those shots. Guess it brought back some bad memories. Anyway, I’m tied up for Saturday…. I’ll call you.”

    “Creepy” is not the right word. This sounds like Creen is a graduate of the Sandusky School of Children Communications. I hear Creen even offers shower caps to recruits that visit IU.

    I would love to have a twitter transcript between him and Peter Jurkin. It would probably read a lot like a Conway Twitty album.

    Saw Coach Crean at Chick-fil-A with a ‘recruit’ – or two.

    I’ve been thinking about you a lot too, coach Crean. Especially when I’m on the toilet.

    “Coach Crean, The Harbaugh Brothers are on line 1”.

    Imagine what the media would say if Coach Cal Tweeted the exact same thing. Everyone would be accusing him of cheating on his wife. the media would be having a field day with this

    This guy is too strange….who tweets a message like that to a recruit?…I do not believe it was to a recruit. I guess we can expect more tweets like “I was just in the shower and i was thinking about you..how are you doing?” or “You were amazing last night..I can’t stop thinking about you”. Maybe the Sweet 16 beatdown has caused him to snap…

    I guess Crean really does “love” his players…

    You know what they say about Sex Panther colgne…60% of the time it works everytime. Give @tomcrean and that recruit about an hour and they will be doing the no pants dance.

    Hate to say it, but I have to respect Crean. It’s nice to be able to hate the Hoosiers again.
