    Default The Jim O'Brien Show on am1070...where'd it go?

    I was looking for the Jim O'Brien show on am 1070 and couldn't find an air time on their broadcasting schedule. Has the show been cancelled? If not, does anyone know when it will air again so I can call and give coach a piece of my mind?

    Not on this season.

    Not sure exactly why. No offical word and I don't believe we have heard an unconfirmed reason either.

    Although many of their own theories

    If that is Cowherd - he has not been on 1070 in many months.

    I think JOB just doesn't want to continue getting an earful from the fans. Believe me, I'd call the show and tell him a thing or two (on top of "Get lost!").

    I'm normally not too critical of a coach because most need to have the right kind of players on the team who are coachable and will run the offense/defense his way. But this year, JOB has those players and what has he done with them to date?

    NOT A GD THING!

    It's frutrating knowing what this team can do but for some reason they can't seem to beat the teams they're suppose to beat, yet can somehow muster the will to defeat the giants (or atleast compete better against them in most cases).

    Since the Pacers' home game against the Lakers, this team has really begun to fall apart and I'm not exacly sure why though I have my theories.

    Bottom Line: I think JOB tinkers with the lineup too much!

    Solution (IMO): Start the best players at their relative position, AND STICK WITH THEM unless a starter is injured. Stop this madness of "matchups" before the game even begins. Make your matchup adjustments as the game goes on. Otherwise, all JOB does is tip his hand to the opposing team and causes tons of confusion amongst the players.

    STOP THE MADNESS ALREADY!!!

    I called him out on the +/- and why he says it doesn't matter yet that was his reasoning for many lineup moves, etc. last season. It kind of pissed him off, and they only did one or two more shows after that.

    Grady told me they just weren't going to do it this season, as well as the post-game call-in show with Kevin Lee. Emmis just doesn't have a lot of money to throw around. All the sponsorship dollars are going towards Polian's show. Plus 93.1's programming schedule is booked solid.

    Ah!!! Then it is your fault.

    If I lived near Indy, I'd've called in more regularly and told JOB a thing or two myself. Sometimes (which is more often than not), I just don't get him.

    Yeah, I don't know what you call a standing ovation over a message board, but I got the equivalent that day.

    Also, during the STH event last March I was playing pool beside Jim, and he made a snide comment about my ability to do well at what I was doing. There is animosity.

    This made me laugh hard, particularly the last sentence.

    Does Jim even like the fans and organization?

    He did shake hands with fans when the second half was beginning when I came to Indy last year.

    He probably got the hint that everyone has had enough and wish to move on.

    I imagine that Jim O'Brien knows that he's on his way out the door anyway, so he's just going to keep coaching basketball the way that he prefers to. I would probably do the same thing, if there was little chance that my job would be saved by changing in the last months of my employment.

    Joke. Wish we could better indicate tone.

    Crew,

    I can clarify this, at least to some degree.

    First of all, Mr. Grady is speaking on a subject of which he has no knowledge. The decision to put the JOB Show on hiatus - it could be revisited in subsequent seasons - was made at the marketing level by the Pacers, not by Emmis. Essentially, with the team and economy both struggling in recent seasons, the decision was made to concentrate on getting sponsors for the actual game night broadcasts, rather than try and spread things thin with supporting peripheral programming.

    Hope this explanation helps.

    Thanks for the clarification Mark. Glad to see someone in the Pacers family responding to our questions and concerns.

    To me that's crazy!

    Announces try very hard to play him up, lamenting about his stints in Boston and Philly, but they're quick to note he hasn't had the same level of success here as he had with either of the teams he formerly coached (i.e., he hasn't taken the Pacers to the post-season). So, if I were in JOB's shoes, I'd be doing E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G I could to move this team forward including listening to the fanbase and taking some of their criticism/critiques to heart.

    WE KNOW THIS TEAM! We've seen these guys play (most of them anyway). We know what they're capable of doing. But we know stupid, boneheaded moves when we see them. Case and point...

    Grizzlies were in the penalty at or near the 9:07 mark in the 4Q. My wife who doesn't know that much about basketball (but understands it alot better now that she's watched games with me) said, "Now, watch Granger, Dunleavy and Posey start jacking up 3's instead of taking the ball to the basket. They (Grizzlies) are in the penalty, but the Pacers won't take advantage of it. And even if they do, they'll miss their free throws."

    And what happened, ladies and gentlemen?

    Pacers: 1-7 from downtown; 5-9 FTs.

    In over 9 minutes of play!!! Pathetic!!!

    And...when Cowherd spoke about how contraction for the NBA would actually be a good thing, he cited teams like Minny, Toronto, and even Sacramento as underachievers who never amount to much. Not one mention of the Pacers.
    I like the Cowherd show and believe he actually spews excellent info. No idiot there.

    as much as i dont like jim i just wish we'd have a head coach show every year

    hopefully we get to hear a new show next year such as the "mike brown show" or the "lawrence frank show"
    In 49 states it's just basketball, but this is Indiana!
