I believe the "passion" statement is word for word what I received from Glass when I sent him a message to express my concerns about Coach Crean. Obviously, IU fans are passionate and I do not doubt the passion of Mr. Glass or Mr. Dolson. Still, the message must certainly be getting through that IU basketball fans now fit into the category of "long-suffering" as the program has not been anywhere near what it was over 20 years ago. Set national championships aside for now . . . I want to attend AH or tune into a broadcast ready for a good basketball game with the feeling that IU has a very good chance of winning. In the past, there were those games where IU would come out flat and lose one unexpectedly. Now, it is the opposite; I expect a loss and occasionally the team will come out fired up and win one unexpectedly.
