Crean almost there.....just one more win.

Crean almost there.....just one more win. 

Crean's coaching/adjusting in the second halves and the end of Illinois were not helping his cause but I, as one of the ones that wasn't bashing him publically but had my doubts to myself have to give credit where credit is deserved.

The MSU game was one of the best played and coached games I've seen in years by IU.  So much so that I watched it from start to finish a second time Tuesday late.

I am now for the first time with Crean confident that he can coach this team to a national championship.  I'd like to see one more tough win, maybe against and at Michigan and no more goose eggs like the Illinois.  I can deal with another loss, just not like that.

It's hard to tell whether Coach has simply been working his plan for the past several years and has simply lacked the personnel to execute it for success, or if he has been growing into the job. One thing we're learning about him, he's a pretty smart guy and is always looking to learn.

His shortcomings in the department of X's and O's have been pointed out and widely debated on this forum and others, but the fact is that we're back to winning B1G games and on the top of the college basketball world. The MSU game was a masterful job of preparation and execution--but it won't stop his critics from lambasting him when we lose another game.

It has been great to see things come together for Coach, the team, and the Hoosier Nation. We can see a clear road to a national championship. Let's close this one out. We can do it, and nobody deserves it more than Coach.

I have been very critical of Coach and some of his decisions when the game is on the line as well as some of our senior players bone head decisions especially the Ill. game, it makes me want to puke, but my opinions dont necessarly mean that I dislike our coach or the team, I support our team as much as anyone always want them to play up to their potential, I know they havent scratched the surface of what they are capable of. I know that they are capable of going undefeated the rest of the season and possibly winning a NC, But will they? the ball is in their court and it is all up to them. If they dont accomplish what they are capable off it is their fault as much as the coaching staff, they are the ones making the decisions on the court. As I look back over this season I think it has been an outstanding success in my eyes and CTC seems to be doing a lot better coaching than in the first part of the season.
Onward and Upward IU team, Win it ALL. You can Do IT.

Hoosier Forever,
