The basketball hire, let's not forget the fact that no one wanted the job. I'm not willing to throw Glass out the window yet. I like Glass.
The roof of Assembly Hall is literally caving in right now. I mean I don't know whether to laugh or cry at this point.
Well, if we needed any more confirmation the sky was falling on IU basketball...
It's hard to criticize Glass for anything football related considering that IU football would be a failure even if we could resurrect Knute Rockne to coach.
Honestly, I'm not surprised by this. Anyone who has been in AH in the past 3 years has to have noticed the ceiling sagging. I actually commented on it earlier this season.
He kept Tracy Smith around when he had one foot out the door to Ohio State. He hired Curt Miller to perform miracle work on our women's basketball program, which has historically had about as much success as our baseball program previous to Smith's arrival. Crean was a bad hire, but the other options available were not great, and it's not like it was a Kelvin Sampson-level disaster, and that's coming from someone who's disliked the Crean hire from pretty much Day 1.
Glass deserves some blame, but let's not blow it out of proportion here.

Great, now a piece of metal has seen more time on the court than Peter Jurkin.
video of the beam or whatever falling. what the hell, I thought Assembly was just outdated, not falling apart.
Heard about the beam falling on the radio. When I heard breaking news with IU basketball I really hoped Crean had been let go. Sad it was this instead. Other than Glass giving Crean and extension I have no problem with anything he did.
Judging by Wilsons comments, he had to have been the one behind the Mallory firing. Wilson has one last year. He got rid of Freitag and got us our 8th National Championship.
So does IU play another game in Assembly Hall this season? We seriously might not win another game if our remaining home games have to be played at BLF. IU is cursed in that building.
I think what it was was IU's season finally coming crashing down....
Nuntius was right for a while. I was wrong for a while. But ultimately I was right and Frank Vogel has been let go.
