Stevens is outside the “brotherhood”. K would never allow it.
IU fans would burn down Duke's campus and the city of Durham if Stevens took the Duke job.
If Stevens left the Celtics for Duke then it would be clear to us all what basketball coaches view as the best job in the sport.
IIRC, Duke is the highest paying job.
There's really only one job that basically guarantees a championship on your resume. Don't be a drunk and you'll win title.
You shut your dirty whore mouth right this second! Archie is the chosen one and savior! Look what Dayton has done since he left.
Well, K has earned that.
Stevens nor anybody else would make what K did... at first.
Did IU actually want him?
That's what I was led to believe but I'm pretty gullible as well.
I can’t tell if anybody actually believes Stevens would leave not just the NBA, but the ****ing Celtics, for a college job
This is Kentucky, it's not Jodie Meeks. That's really a bad question.
The guy had the personality of a Joan Crawford wire hanger.
They'd be stupid not to want him so probably not.
This would only be if we go outside the Duke family, and I think K's replacement will have to be from the Duke family. But AFTER the next one, maybe...?
But who knows, of course.
UK didn’t run Tubby off anymore than IU ran Crean off. Even Creans kids were getting heckled during his high school game. With BKG, you all had no choice but to fire him after everything that had happened during his 2 year’s. I’m not sure what more us fans can honestly do here? I’ve said it a hundred time here, but the problem is that they have a president who has openly said that he wants IU to be known for its academics instead of its sports. He’s taken over 50 million of B1G network money that should have been spent on the athletic department and instead put it towards his own personal legacy buildings.
Until either he retires and a new president is in place who values athletics, or the BoT decide to not accept his vision....it’s a lost cause!
In two years, you'll finally realize what the rest of us already know. Archie is not the right guy to get Indiana back to what it should be. He's just not capable of building a bigtime program. He's a mediocre coach at best.
He might be able to run practices, design some plays and sell IU to some recruits, but that doesn't mean he can survive under the pressure in Bloomington.
You ever heard of battered wife syndrome? This post wreaks of it.
Stevens went from Butler to the greatest job in the sport. Brad hates recruiting. Brad will not be returning to college basketball any time soon.
But, but, but if INDIANA COMES CALLING BRAD LISTENS!!!
I mean literally no one said that after Crean was fired. After Sampson was fired yes.
Never contacted him. But that had more to with his sister's tenure at IU, and how it ended...Bennett was considered when Sampson was fired.
I spoke with two former IU players last week. Told me the top of the list was:
Stevens/Donovan. After that---It was Miller. Donovan was interested, but wanted towait until after the NBA season, to give a definitive answer. IU didn't want to wait. Moved on to Miller.
I know. I kid, I kid. I don't see why they thought that though. They thought just because he's from Indiana he would take the IU job? There's no connection to IU, is there? Or maybe he grew up shooting hoops in his driveway pretending to be Isiah Thomas?
He is from an IU family. IU made a call (which you have to) quickly shut down and moved to Donovan after that the call was Archie. We will see if it pans out. It’s going slower than most IU fans would like but I am still hanging on. We will all know by March 2021 if he is going to be around awhile
Understandable. I was always pissed Pat Riley never came to coach at UK after all his success with the Lakers.
You were actually pissed he didn't come back to Kentucky. I thought you were being sarcastic. yeah, he would be ideal, but was it ever a real option?
No, that's why I'm pissed.
Nobody??? You're out of your mind if you believe that.
Most of the IU fanbase at least suggested the name Brad Stevens and why the hell wouldn't they?
You don't expect anyone on here to believe that "literally no one" said or posted on Twitter/fb/message boards that IU needs to offer the job to Brad Stevens and that if the deal was good enough, he'd listen.
The IU fanbase is just as nutty and delusional as the UK fanbase is, you were either living on a deserted island or had no internet when Sampson and Crean were canned.
And once IU goes through the Archie era, which will be another dud, they need to stop screwing around and go hard after a proven coach/program manager, not someone they THINK will be good some day.
Archie doesn't have the chops for the IU job.
Yeah, they still have people talking about Stevens. Went to their homeboard (what a cesspool) and found this from Monday.
You know better than to talk about a home board free board
Yeah, it's one of my least favorite things to do. But you did say "no one".
We had some good arguments on here when Miller was hired. I'm far too lazy to go back and find them though. It might be too early for the real results but it's midway through year 3 so idk.
I'll be honest most large fanbase schools are cesspools, especially free board, but pay boards are awful as well.
Concur. I usually avoid our home pay board for 24 hours after a loss. Idiots come out in droves.
Only on losses? You're lucky.
I haven't been on our free board in several months.
I'm talking pay board.
Ouch. Most of our idiots disappear when Purdue is winning. Fortunately we haven't seen them much the last few years. This year has been more of a challenge.
Ours are creative. I've been having fun with them. My favorite was the fire Archie crowd and we should have gotten holtmann instead right before OSU took a nose dive. Was a pretty fun after OSU started slipping.
