Underachieving tenure at a place where that shouldn't be acceptable.

I could be wrong but I think Tom Crean has a massive buyout until 2020. I'd guess he gets through this year, but next year the heat gets turned on. In nine seasons at IU, Crean has yet to advance past the Sweet 16. At some schools, especially IU, that just won't cut it.

Crean would be a perfect fit for the Mizzou job.

That is a tough job. Being 5-7 in conference doesn't cut it there, and being worse than Purdue must be completely unacceptable there.

Do the best coaching candidates really want to coach at IU? There is history, and compared to some other Big Ten schools it has the advantage (from a basketball coach's perspective) that football is not the king sport on campus. But only a diehard IU fan would argue that it's one of the three best basketball coaching jobs in the Big Ten. And it's also not one of the ten most attractive jobs nationally.

I work with a number of Hoosiers. The ones I work with don't seem to want him gone. The problem in Bloomington is if they did get rid of him who would take the job?

As a Hoosier that lived in Indiana during the end of Bobby, Mike Davis, Kelvin Sampson into Tom Crean, what many don't know about IU is they have terrible facilities. The ceiling of Assembly Hall actually fell in 2014 during basketball season. The problem at IU is Bobby was so successful and he didn't need all the bells and whistles that other coaches and programs did. When Bobby left IU found themselves behind.

This link is a little dated but you get some idea how bad things have been in Bloomington.

As for who could replace Crean, probably an up and coming assistant.

A couple of my Son's friends made this video about IU. Shows some awesome history of the program. If you can't tell I root for Indiana except when they play Louisville.

IU has been to the tourney 5/6 years, was 15-3 in conference last year and sweet 16. He has been to 3 sweet 16s, that is pretty good. Not really about Purdue, Gene Keady had a winning record vs. IU.

His buyout goes from $4 million to $1million this summer so maybe IU keeps him around another year. However, he might bolt for another job to get out out town if he think next season looks hopeless at IU.
