Will Indiana Finally Fire Tom Crean?

Screen Shot 2017-02-22 at 8.08.19 PM

After the Indiana Hoosiers played another night of awful basketball, losing to a 14-13 Iowa team by six, Matt Jones and Mary Jo Perino weighed in on Dwight Schrute’s Tom Crean’s future.  After years and years of skating on thin ice, it might finally be time for Crean to go.

Watch Wednesday’s entire episode with Matt and MJP after the jump.

    Well good thing they aren’t 23-5 and tied for first place in the conference or all hell would break loose…

    No doubt, this site is so full of fair weather whiners makes me not even want to visit this site anymore. Here is an interesting website…….. http://www.tomcreanbuyout.com

      Yeah, thats our problem. too many people patting Cal on the back and sucking up to him. Ohh he is the greatest. Oh he can coach. Fair weather? Nope. Been a fan since I can remember. Just tired of the bs one and dones and his inability or not wanting to make adjustments in game or lineups.

      Why wouldn’t 95% of BBN like Cal? So far, he’s done just as good as Joe B. Hall, way better than Eddie Sutton, more than Pitino, more than Tubby, and waaaaay more than Billie Gillispie.

      You’re preaching to the wrong crowd. I’m not sure why you are so dead set on trying to convince everyone otherwise…?

      If making you a fair weather whiner means telling the truth. Fine with me Isiah Briscoe sucks and should never be around a basketball unless he has a wide open lay up.

      A fair weather whiner. Because if you call out the regression of this team this season then you’re not a real Kentucky fan, right? I remember when you could go to team forums and not be accused of being a troll because you question coaching strategy. Only response you get is the same old “well why don’t we just hire you?”

    I am a Kentucky basketball fan but I am not going to say they are a good player because of the name on the front of their jersey. Isaiah Briscoe sucks!
    I hate Greyson Allen and I think he should have been suspended the rest of the year, but at least he can ball.
    We get a punk (Isaiah Briscoe) that can’t shoot and turns the ball over and starts and stays in the game unless he gets into foul trouble. What wrong with this picture?

    I am a real Kentucky fan and I bleed blue but Cal will never sell me on Briscoe. Something is up. He played Andrew Harrison instead of Ulis. Now he is playing Briscoe instead of Hawkins, Mulder, or Willis. All are seniors and deserve it more and play so much better than Briscoe…#BenchBriscoe

      Cal lets the assistants do most of the coaching now. He is just a figure now that yells during games. Never seen the talent Cal has on a yearly basis look so bad in half court offense

      I think they will have 9-10 losses before selection day and be a 7-10 seed. No im not a Cards fan. Our resume is poor. 3-4 really bad losses and 1 decent victory. If more teams keep losing 5-6.

      We suck so bad in football I really forgot that we were even playing a game at all until about 9. We are pathetic in every way possible.From the coaching to the players this football program is pathetic. Can we just take football away from the university It is pointless to play. The only thing our football program is good at is making a bad name for the university and making any team look awesome, How sad is it when your team cannot even win a conference game in 2 seasons. Absolute joke. laughing stock of all of football

    Is it because he can shoot? NO… Does he turn the ball over a lot? YES… Why should he start? Maybe to get his ass out of Kentucky and straight to the D League.

    I dont think Briscoe is the greatest but he is 1000 times better than your opinion of him. That is a fact.
    Delk’s analysis is reasonable, nuanced and fact based.

      Show anyone how any three of those guys are statistically better overall. If all you care about is who starts…who gives a shite? I care about who plays. Willis is good. Terrible on defense. Rebounds sometimes cant score like Briscoe. I stated in an earlier post that Mulder and Hawk should get some of Briscoe’s minutes. Your blind hatred of him and inability to read a stat sheet shows the shallowness that is boldly on display tonight.

    10:54 pm February 22, 2017 Permalink

    I watch all the game and not stats. Stats can be deceiving. You are supposed to be getting better at the end of the year not worse. Briscoe did ok against some lower level schools. Against good teams he likes to run out of bounds A LOT and turns the ball over. What about his shot? I am not talking about his FG% because of lay ups. He can’t make a shot beyond 5 feet.
    So, he is either a point guard that can’t pass and turns the ball over or he is a shooing guard that can’t shoot. Either way he shouldn’t be on the court unless you need to foul someone.
    I have been a Kentucky fan all my life but I have never seen anything like this. Why would you keep this bum on the court???
    If you want a leader look to your seniors. They know what it takes to win. Hawkins, Mulder, and Willis!

      Your the bitch that need attention. FAKE ASS UK FAN. If you were a real fan you would tell the truth. I’m not afraid to show who I am @JBJ1982 . Who are you little bitch. Get off of Cal and Briscoes nuts. Ive been a UK fan since 1982 born into this shit. So I will be damned if you or Cal or anyone else tells me Briscoe deserves the starting job over Hawkins, Mulder, or Willis. He can’t shoot anything over 5 ft from the basket. Can’t make a free throw. Runs out of bounds more than anyone ive ever seen. And you think he is good enough to play at UK? You need to check yourself… A REAL UK fan tells the truth. Like that shit you all said about Tubby. Everybody knows he should have been fired. He didn’t do shit but take Pitinos players and win. Even they have to comeback from 20 down because of his dumbass style of play. You could have put Billy G in that role and he would have won that year.

      Except Cal’s the coach, and you aren’t. How many national titles do you have, lil’ Jimmy?

      Get a girlfriend (or boyfriend) and try to take life a little less serious. Its just a game.

    UK Big Board Update Did you notice how many likes you got? You suck and should be fired. I will make sure of it. Any post you make on here, I will call you out. Fake ass punk trying to hack me. Then threaten my on a public post. I hate people like you and will make it my mission to take your fake ass down. You are not a true Kentucky Fan and never will be. You are a bitch and I will make you my bitch…

    No because of all the injuries this team faced. They will probably give him another year.
