Indiana Fires Crean In Midst of Madness

Indiana Fires Crean In Midst of Madness

UCLA head coach Steve Alford says he is not focused on the vacant IN job as his current team is set to begin the NCAA tournament.

It's a resume that should be celebrated, not condemned. But that was not enough for the administration and a rabid fan base searching for it's first NCAA title since 1987. Finally, Hoosiers Athletic Director Fred Glass came clean: Hosting an NIT game is beneath them. But if ever there was a time to leave ... it's for a blueblood, like Indiana. "I think sometimes, those of us who are so close to it at IN don't step back and recognize what an extraordinary job this is". The same could be said for potentially replacing a coach with Matta's history at Ohio State after two down seasons.

"Double-check-plus", Glass said. Alford's name will surely be at the top of Indiana's list, along with coaches like Gregg Marshall of Wichita State and Archie Miller of Dayton.

More than a fan, Joe Hall is a follower of IU Basketball. He touted Crean's successes during his tenure as head coach.

The Hoosiers tied up the game at 24-24 after a Curtis Jones' dish to Blackmon led to a breakaway layup with 4:19 on the clock, however the Yellow Jackets would close out the half on a 10-3 run to take a 34-27 lead into the break.

Google Guetzli - a new open source JPEG encoder
As you can see, the new encoder fares better than libjpeg , although, as we said above, it needs more time to produce results. Tests carried out by Google revealed that users preferred the images Guetzli produced compared to other JPEG encoders.

That year, Crean delivered the first of three Sweet 16 bids.

Izzo said he spoke with Crean late last night and had tried to get back in touch with him all day Thursday, but hadn't had any luck yet.

If Indiana felt Crean was fine, but was never going to produce anything more than the inconsistencies that have occurred over the last decade, then maybe there's some foresight in this move that will pay off. I learned a long time ago, when I was probably four or five years into the job, I started interviewing for jobs that that's what I wanted. I expect there to be great interest in it.

But, IU has not won a national championship in 30 years. I love Los Angeles. "You're talking about arguably the greatest brand anywhere on the planet".

For those counting, that was 219 words.

Ralph Shortey, Oklahoma state senator, charged with engaging in child prostitution
As part of the investigation, police are examining text messages sent between Shortey and the boy, according to The Oklahoman . An employee at the motel said that Shortey checked into the hotel at 12:20 a.m. asking for a room with two beds.

IN was 38 percent from the field on 22-of-58 shooting, while Georgia Tech (18-15) went 48 percent from the floor on 27-of-56 shooting. You can't take it personal. He opted not to give any further comment about the situation.

Now, though, that's exactly what "this" will be about.

Alford leaving to IN would be seen as a prodigal son returning to his house. The Yellow Jackets' head coach and ACC Coach of the Year Josh Pastner bought tickets for the entire student section.

Crean began his career at IU in the 2008-2009 season.

However in recent years Crean hasn't been able to capitalize on that. He wants a proven victor, a proven recruiter who can tap into the fertile ground of high school basketball in IN and across the midwest.

Japan, US agree to urge N. Korea to halt nuke, missile programs
Tillerson said the alliance with Japan is a "cornerstone of peace and stability of the Asia-Pacific region". Experts say it could have a nuclear-tipped missile that could reach the United States within a few years.

It remains to be seen if such expectations are realistic anymore at Indiana. More important in that is that by and large in kids tend to stay close to home, and there is a general pull within the state to help keep kids within the borders.
