    Default Does our playoff berth= Head Coach Vogel?

    After clinching the eighth tonight, does this mean Vogel locks up the job in your opinion?! Does he deserve it yet? He accomplished exactly what I wanted at the beginning of the season. PLAYOFFS!!

    Certainly not.

    Although as many will point out, a playoff series is a good way to test the mettle of a head coach. How he deals with the adjustments through a series against the same opponent will be telling. As good of an audition for the position as anything.

    I want to see how we do in the post-season before anyone anoints him as our head coach. I really like Vogel and I think that he has some great potential as our very own Brad Stevens, but I want to wait just a tad bit longer.

    No, this is never the case for an interim head coach.

    He's most likely going to get the first interview as Bird said when we first named him head coach, but it won't mean that Vogel is definitely the head coach.

    Depends on how he does against Chicago. As a side note, I REALLY hope it's Chicago. I live in Iowa, and the Chicago Bulls is the "local" team for us.

    I hope if it is Chicago that at least some bandwagon Pacer fans come to Conseco. I do NOT want to go to those games and see a crapload of Bulls fans.

    95% Yes.

    He accomplished the goal we set at the start of this season. He took over in the midst of what looked to be yet another wasted season, with a struggling Hibbert, slumping Granger, second-year PG with a learning curve, and then lost Dunleavy (who some may not like, but certainly plays a role on this team), and he still made the playoffs. Maybe we didn't set the world on fire, but he did start off with a tremendous record. I think he is definitely responsible for getting the production out of this team that we thought they were capable of. He's brought a new attitude and a new excitement to the Pacers, and gotten us back to the playoffs.

    And, with a guy like Bird who is loyal to his guys, I think Frank will get the job. With a full offseason, training camp, and all that, I think he gets even better.

    The 5% chance that he doesn't get the job is in case we get swept out of the playoffs in 2 or 3 games. By that I mean that if the team gets blown out so miserably that they give up hope, and Vogel isn't able to get their best effort in the playoffs, then he may not be the guy.

    All that said, he has my vote.

    Pretty much in the playoffs, everyone in the home city's fans sell the arena out.

    Yeah there will probably be a couple of Bulls fans there, but there's a ton of Pacers fan waiting for this moment for years and will get their tickets fast. That's why I gotta get mine once they go on sale and a flight which won't be easy around Easter.

    If he wins the series against Chicago, I'd put him at 80% for coming back as head coach.

    Please. If he beats Chicago, they'll sign him the next day. They'd have to be morons not to.

    Right now though, it's way too early to tell.

    If he does that, I'd say make him President in 2012.

    do you want to bet.

    There will be a significant number of Bulls fans.

    Trust me casual Pacers fans aren't too impressed by the playoff berth

    If the pacers were playing the hawks in the first round I would expect around 13,000 to 14,000 at the games. The Bulls fans will make ita sellout - so that means 4000 Bulls fans

    I bet even more Bulls fans show much cheaper than a playoff game in the UC.

    I won't bet against you. I hope there are only 3,000 - 4,000 Bulls fans.

    Pacers are aware of the situation that is why tickets for those who live outsie Indiana don't go on sale until Sunday

    It also depends on the day If it will be a weekend game there will be tons and if it is a week day game some will still will show. Chicago has very good traveling fans. Plus there is so much hype around that team in chicago because how they have played this year.

    I don't believe that for a second. If the Pacers are capable of selling out the occasional regular season game (which they have), then they should have no problem selling out or at least nearly selling out their first home playoff games in 5 years.

    I'm not saying they would sell out in an hour or anything, maybe day of game, but I would think they can generate enough buzz to get the place reasonably filled.

    That is not to say there won't be Bulls fans. I expect there to be plenty of them, unfortunately.

    I hope you are correct. Biggest factor will be how many season ticket holders bought playoff tickets.

    I hate to be negative, (oh, wait, forgot who I was for a second), but I'll be surprised if we sell out either game. Frankly, I think the only way we sell out is if we win one of the first two in Chicago.

    And no, this isn't about the last few years, either. I remember all those ****ing Pistons fans in the '04 ECF. That was horrible. Absolutely horrible. Probably my worst memory at the Fieldhouse.
