    Crean, Alford, or both? I think you set up something interesting here.

    Alford is the luckiest bastard I've ever seen. Keeps backing into better and better jobs without accomplishing anything, kind of like Lane Kiffin used to.

    Crean strikes me as a self-righteous douche, the way he paces the sidelines with his nose in the air. I think he truly believes he is single-handedly responsible for each win.

    Scott Drew would be dominant at IU

    No doubt, unless we want to get wild and give Bryce the credit.
    I don't know how to pull that off, though.

    I hadn't remembered how inconsistent Indiana has been the last few years. Crean was just a termination waiting to happen.

    That's not fair. Cooper was held back by a medical condition, middle Ball is held back because he's an egomaniacal little ****.

    Yeah, Peyton Manning probably has a better shot at getting the Indiana job.

    Steve Alford has been a 3-seed 3 times before. Those teams have lost twice to 14-seeds and once to a 11-seed. Don't pencil UCLA into the Elite Eight yet.

    Archie Miller and Scott Drew will probably get a phone call.

    Butler is there too, maybe even ahead of those two.

    That's the home run hire for them I think. 1A would be Gregg Marshall, but he's pretty settled and making bank.

    It will be Alford. Indiana basketball isn't what it used to be and Alford is a good enough mix of coach plus nostalgia for the good old days.

    He's currently the 16th overall player in his class and a 5 star. Yeah, he's not that good :rolleyes:

    It will be interesting to see what job Crean ends up at. Indiana will have their sights set high on their next coach.

    I just saw he was barely a top 100 player on 247's composite but if he's a 5 star somewhere it's probably because he isn't ranked on ESPN or Scout or something which brings it way down. My bad
