One of the major issues with IU basketball has been that we became a hit/miss program. One 20 win season followed by a couple years of mediocracy.

We have been "Rebuilt" 3-4 times over the last 17-18 years, & one was a significant undertaking.

If we hire a veteran coach who might be here for 5-7 years, he has to agree to groom the next guy.

We have not had a smooth coaching transition in BB since before RMK. That's a lot of years.

To think that we are going to pull someone from the sky & get 20 years of awesome coaching; think again.

I think that this is why UCLA still struggles. Since Wooden retired, nothing but firings.

We need to build something different & trust it to pay dividends down the road.

Look at IU Football, if something happened to CTA "god forbid', they would probably hire from within or a former Allen guy. They do not want to kill the MOJO that they got going with IU Football. IU BB has had very little MOJO for a number of years..

At least UCLA has a post Wooden title. How many post RMK’s do we have?
