    Just now on the Big Ten Network (prior to the Wis game) they reported from the floor of Assembly Hall that Greenspan was asked if Sampson will coach the rest of the season. Greenspan said that hadn't been decided yet. They said they would take their time to make the proper decisions.

    I find it a little hard to believe that Greenspan didn't answer that with a 'no comment' or a PC "That's not something we've considered"

    Seems like Sampson not finishing the season is a real option that is on the table. Wow...

    The more I think about that comment the more it sounds like the decision to fire Sampson has already been made, the question is when.

    Now all those names can start surfacing again:
    Matta
    Few
    Alford
    ...

    -Bball
    Matta - what does IU have that OSU doesn't? i mean they were just in a National Championship and he's getting top recruits...

    Few - i suppose it is possible

    Alford - PR move sure but he wasn't good enough for Iowa to keep around and frankly has a worse record in the post-season than davis.


    ultimately it is going to be until the summer until we find out the sanctions and i highly doubt any coach would be interested in even interviewing before they find out what restrictions there are. so honestly dakich is about the only thing that makes sense if sampson is fired between now and july.
    This is the darkest timeline.

    At some point Matta had said IU was his dream job. ...But the last time the job was open would've been awful timing for him to consider it with Oden and Conley coming in and him freshly inserted into the OSU job. Things are a little different now.

    Knight could then finish up his career back home at OSU...

    Ebanks will go somewhere else because he has a max of two years in college and I don't see him coming here with this much uncertainity.

    I agree that Sampson needs to go now. If he stays it will be harder to fire him. If he is ousted now then it might lessen the load of sanctions against the team.

    What if he stays and some how the Hoosiers win it all? Is he still fired?

    No he has to go now. He is scum. More than a cheater and a liar, he will probaly do anything to win. That is dangerous.

    Maybe he can get a job with the Patriots.

    Does this open the door to Bob Knight coming back for one last hurrah?

    What day did coach resign last week at Texas Tech?

    Speculation and probably ridiculous speculation on my part, but the Bobby Knight fan in me wants coach back.

    Amen brudder! OK that's in the dream world.

    Greenspan has got to go too. It was his call to hire him so the guilt is on him too.

    I don't get this at all. We're all down on the Pacers for behavioral issues, and yet, some of us want to bring Bobby Knight back to Bloomington? Seriously?

    Somewhere... on this forum or another... I read that it was reported on the radio that Sampson was Greenspan's #2 choice and the higherups wanted Sampson over Greenspan's #1. So, maybe Greenspan isn't to blame here.

    If true, that's a nice card to have in your pocket if you are Greenspan.
