Tom Crean’s Outburst

 

“You know what you did! You helped wreck the program! You helped wreck the program!”

Above is the video of the altercation between Tom Crean and Michigan assistant coach Jeff Meyer, who was previously an assistant under Kelvin Sampson at Indiana. Crean apologized this morning, stating that it was a “professional misunderstanding”. I don’t see anything professional about it, do you?

    Geeez, act like you’ve been there before… oh, right, we’re talking IU here. Why is everything they do the total opposite of class- although not surprising really.

    Having no class starts at the top of that program and filters all the way down to their fans.

    Don’t care one way or the other for Crean, but, maybe thats the only time he had the chance to say that to the guy. Lets be real, do you think they hang out together often? If its true, its true. Doesn’t matter WHO is saying it. Would have been nice to hear the audio though LOL.

    Something else I just realized after their win over Michigan, they’ve only won 5 Big10 titles. You’d think with so much “history” they’d have lots more than that….no wonder they hate the Cats. They are so jealous they can’t see straight…5 titles…what a joke.

    Wreck the program? There was nothing to wreck!!! IU just won its first big ten title in 20 years. other than a fluke run to the championship game in ’02 this program has been a disaster, marred in shame, mired in scandal by the likes of bobby knight mike Davis kelvin Sampson and Tom crean.

Instant douche. Oh, and by my account, if Meyer didn’t do what he did, Crean wouldn’t even be in that position as head coach?

    Hey WildcatBy TheGraceOfGod- They’ve actually won 21 Big Ten titles. But you were so close with 5. And that fluke run in 2002 was preceded by 5 National Titles, maybe that’s the 5 you were thinking of.

    I know IU is not, never has been, or never will be at the same level as UK and I know Crean acted like a jerk yesterday. But at least take the time to get your facts straight.

    Jeff Meyer is a good man and did not deserve this. Served over 15 years as Liberty College/University’s head coach. Mr. Joannie Harbaugh is pathetic and like someone else I saw mention, if not for the program being “wrecked” in the first place- where would Crean be today?

    So let me be sure I understand this correctly…this assistant was an assistant under Sampson who got IU in their most recent NCAA trouble. Sampson was found guilty of NCAA recruiting violation which created the opening for Tom Crean(my pants)to become the IU head coach? Then he finally wins something and then uses the opportunity to attack the assistant coach who now coaches at Michgan? This is premediated, not a normal winning celebration act. Some one suggested that we would have kissed Pitino’s a$$ if he had done that to Sutton? Not a chance! Althought I don’t think Pitino has any class, he still has more class than Crean(my pants)! I suspect when IU looses a game(which they historically do under Crean(my pants)) he probably attackes his own assistant coaches in the same manner…I would not be upset if we EVER play IU while Crean(my pants) is there, only he could make me wish Knight was still there – he has much more class – cannot believe I am typing that!

    It would be like Cal going after Glenn Cyprien when we played A & M, for his part in the Gillispie debacle. I can’t imagine Call ever having that little class.

    Crean, if he hadn’t “help wreck the program”, you would still be having your ass handed to you by Georgetown and Syracuse and Louisville every year, right? Why is he so irate about something that happened before he got there?

    What is it about IU that makes it impossible for them to get a normal coach. Knight was abusive. Davis ran out on court slapping his head and spent half the time yelling at media. Sampson cheated every second he was awake. And now Tom Crean. The guy is intolerable. If he ever gets punched in the face, the majority of basketball fans would cheer.

    Someone please tell me why Crean is bitching at this guy for “ruining” the program? Had Sampson not done what he did, wouldn’t Crean still be at Marquette?

    Or was he yelling at him to congratulate him on the fine job he did so he could get the job at IU?

    Hey, Idle.. are you even old enough to remember their LAST title, WAY back in 1987?

    WOW, 26 years ago. Babies were born after that who have now grown up, graduated college, received their PH.d, married, have children, but STILL haven’t seen IU win a national Championship.

    That’s some storied history you have there. I mean, if you go back far enough.

    Now Crean can have his picture hung with the others in the IU Lunatic Coach Hall of Fame. Probably best to be between Bobby Knight and Mike Davis though so they can keep Kelvin and him separated.

    Uncalled for and should receive a fine or suspension for the remarks. Very unprofessional and certianly not what you would expect from a program like IU. The University should do something…doubt they will but certianly should.

    I can also see what Crean is trying to do at IU with his “cutting nets down” and “rings” and “popcorn boxes”, etc…he is trying to make something of their return but the problem is what happens if they lose the National Championship this year? He has worked for 2 years to build to this 2013 run to the title but if they lose then it all falls apart and I’m not sure IU gets back up for a long time. All or nothing is his thought process right now and I think that is a big mistake!

    Don’t encourage average, inspire greatness!

    I don’t think anyone is getting the big picture here. IU would lose it’s identity if it didn’t have a crazy assed coach. From the choking, slapping, kicking, chair throwing, friend shooting Knight to the running around the court during play smacking his face Davis then to the rules committee member to a show cause coach Sampson, Crean simply has no choice but to uphold the IU legacy. The only question here is did Knight set the bar too high?

    Cream is the perfect example of an iU guy. I’ll guarantee you there will be NO iU fan supporter that will come out publicly against this. He’s created an environment out of control in Bloomington. And this, is exactly why I don’t care if we ever play them in the regular season again; they don’t deserve it. Before it’s over, he’ll make Knight look like a tame poodle.



  66. MrBoo

    I’m with 65. I knew when Crean was begging IU fans to be as abusive as possible when UK came to town that he was trouble. UK got out of that deal at the perfect time. Cal probably won’t say it in public, but I bet he agrees and that is most of the reasoning behind not going back there. And 65 is also probably dead on by saying their fans won’t see a thing wrong with this. Reality is lost in Bloomington.

    I love the way he coaches his players to flop and fake injuries to try to draw flagrant fouls. The Zeller fake nut-shot was pretty bad, but he followed it up with an even more obvious fake-job with Sheehey => http://www.lostlettermen.com/tom-crean-flopping/

    I think all of the flopping in college BB needs to be addressed by the NCAA. Are we playing for a basketball championship or an academy award? IMO, if the monitor shows that a player was intentionally faking an injury to try to fool the refs, a technical fould should be assessed. I also think the charge situation needs to be clarified more fully. The burden should ALWAYS be on the defender to draw the foul. Seems like the ref’s always err on the side of the defender on these calls.

    Crean is the supreme leader of all douchebags.

    I remember this one time at band camp our team won the tuba contest and it was so crazy. Our director ran around and put his hands all over our face and we meshed foreheads. It was so crazy!

    That smirk on his face when he walks away is just plain weird, as in psychopathic stalker weird. “I have been thinking about you a lot. A whole lot.”

    It is hard to watch. I mean seriously I grew up in FL and I thought UF people were bad. IU and crean blow the gator folk out of the water. This is so funny but really hard to watch a grown man act like that.

    UK fans are just banwagons fans. i wouldnt want fans in washington just pulling for them because the win a lot of games in the SEC. 3 titles but how many really good teams are in that conference. Florida and UK. B1G 10 has easily 5 teams that could win it. SEC has Florida this year.

    Typical IU coach berating others. Remember when Bobby Knight hit Joe B Hall in the head after the Mideast Regional loss to Kentucky in 1975, on UK way to the Final Four. Classless. I liked Crean before I saw this. He showed his ass though here.
    I mean they won their first Big 10 championship since George Bush senior was in office. LLOLOLOLOL…what a joke.

    Wow. Strange and his smirk after tells me he knew exactly what he was doing. Maybe he is trying to light a fire for the stretch run by talking about finishing the job of rebuilding. Who knows as it strikes me as counterproductive, but it also looked premeditated.

    Wouldn’t it be great to see a classless team like Indiana became the first #1 seed to lose to a 16?

    Tom Arnold I mean Tom Crean has brought a whole new fan to IU basketball. The iu-UK game at neutral sight was my favorite game of year. Especially the one in Indy. It was always good natured rivalry. Now the act like a bunch of white trash that has never won anything. They are a low level blue blood for petes sake. Mr crean have some class and bring some class back to your fan base.



  114. this is great
    4:05 pm March 11, 2013 Permalink

    This is priceless. Just when you think you have heard or seen it all from this institution they go and do something totally stupid again. I mean come on-look at that smirk. It has got to be the most unsavory smirk I have ever seen. Please use this smirk at 0:15 for all future Crean posts. I simply cant get enough of it. It’s even better that the Muschamp stare.

    Crean is a clown. The only thing bigger than his head with the idiot haircut is his mouth. He’s a pompous ass trying to live out some Bobby Knight fantasy of seeing how big an ass he can make of himself. Keep trying Crean, I’m sure there are no levels you won’t stoop to. You blow.

    Thanks to Buckley, who so rudely interrupted and dragged Crean away before he could finish, you couldn’t hear the rest of what he said. Here is a complete transcription of what Crean said to Meyer :

    “You know what you did! You helped wreck the program! You helped wreck the program! Thanks to your ineptitude, I got this cushy job! I don’t even have to do anything, and these morons will worship me like a pagan god! I get bonuses for winning OR losing big games, get to cut down nets after home losses, can hang participation ribbons in the rafters after a disappointing season. Thanks to you, IU will never be relevant again, and neither will I….it’s a WIN-WIN !”

    #24 The Big Ten is not historically a better conference than the SEC. The Big Ten has won one NCAA title in TWENTY YEARS! (Michigan State in 2002). The SEC has won FIVE titles in that same time frame. And IU hasn’t won one outright Big Ten title in 20 years in that conference. Pretty weak.

    Good for Crean. It’s that type of fight and attitude that’s got IU back in the conversation. I don’t know if you all remember, but Sampson and his assistants had a MAJOR role in the demise of IU program, and have never had to pay for it. IU did. But all those scum sucking coaches just got to walk. Good for Crean.

    124 shut up. crean had nothing to do with iu before he became the coach so the only effect it had on him was getting him the job. and demise of iu program what about the 20 some years before he samson when they did nothing the program has been non existant for 27 years.

    126 has summed it up. Why does Crean even personally care? If it weren’t for the “program getting wrecked”, he’d still be a mediocre coach at Marquette.

    Hey Rixter-

    I didn’t know titles have an expiration date. I guess if that is the case then UK fans should have stopped with all of their 8 puns last April since they only have 3 since 1978. So go ahead and take down the 4 banners you won in the 40’s & 50’s under Rupp because according to your logic they don’t count anymore. We’ll take ours down to, just let me know what cutoff is. If it is before ’78 you can keep that one and we’ll keep our ’81 & ’87 banners.

    This is actually big-time breaking news, better get ESPN on this, all titles before a certain date no longer count??? Unprecedented. Texas Western (or UTEP) will be highly upset, I assume the makers of Glory Road will be as well. What was the point of their movie, that title never happened.

    I was simply correcting a very wrong statistical statment made, apparently facts aren’t really held in high regard around here.
