    Indiana Mutiny on the Bounty

    Report: Indiana players threaten to quit team




    Posted: February 22, 2008
    Sporting News staff reports




    A meeting between Indiana University athletic director Rick Greenspan and the Hoosiers basketball team Thursday night turned rancorous when players threatened to quit if Kelvin Sampson is removed, CBSSports.com reports.
    Two sources told the website that Greenspan met with players to prepare them for today's official announcement that Sampson would either be suspended or terminated. Before Greenspan was finished speaking, a player stood up and said, "if Sampson ain't coaching, we ain't playing."
    The sources' account says Greenspan then rhetorically asked if he should just cancel the whole season. The player responded, "We don't care what you do. But if Sampson ain't coaching, we ain't playing. Then the players walked out.
    The players declined to comment in front of television cameras outside the meeting.
    The sources also said that Greenspan asked Sampson to resign Thursday night, but Sampson refused.

    Last week Indiana released the NCAA's report that accused Sampson of providing false and misleading information to university and NCAA investigators about phone calls to recuits and failing to promote a high standard of honesty and an atmosphere of compliance in the program. Sampson has said he never intentionally provided false or misleading information to NCAA investigators.

    Wheee, this could get fun to watch! It is their fault for hiring someone with that much baggage. It is like what is going to happen at UCLA. You know Ricky is going to start cheating again and get them in trouble, it is not a matter of if, it is a matter of when.

    "if Sampson ain't coaching, we ain't playing."

    Well, we know they won't be going to English classes either.

    The Hosers basketball team is like the momma who always tells the world, on camera, that her little boy is a "nice boy" and no way could he be the one who just offed all those people, stole all that money, sold all those drugs, and raped all those women.

    Face it, Whosers, your coach is a cheating jerk.

    Did Isaiha Thomas take over as A.D. and not tell anyone about it. This is funny. I would have told the player to take a hike and just to let you know you will always be remembered as a quiter.
