We will agree to disagree, dg. I do not think this bully should be revered at all.


Pretend it was someone else and was responsible for some major changes (e.g. the law or policies), but did some things in the past that were wrong....would you feel the same?  I could provide some examples.

The trouble is, it will sound like an excuse because we've never won the national championship, but winning just isn't all that important to me.” Al McGuire

What "truth"? You have offered no proof that the assault wasn't real. Given Bobby's history of bullying and abusive behavior, I have absolutely no reason to believe it didn't happen.

And he did throttle Reed, and lied about it.

He verbally assaulted a volunteer at the NCAA tournament - mercilessly went after somebody just because he knew he could bully the young man. It was disgusting. He should have been suspended.

Many examples of this kind of behavior, and I am thrilled that recruits and their parents wised up and ran away from Bloomington. He didn't deserve to coach them.

And yes, you are right. I am biased against grown men who physically and mentally abuse those they consider weaker because their status as "institutions" lets them get away with it.

Isn’t he still wanted in Puerto Rico?
What, you still throwing up bricks? What is this, a Masons convention? Clank, clank! I need, like, a welding torch to play in this league! I got an idea, let's just stop right now and gather up all these bricks and let's build a shelter for the homeless so maybe your mother will have a place to stay

Ok for Al to punch someone however.....

If their MO stays the same, they'll wait until Crean's dementia is advanced enough that he doesn't understand where he is.

I don’t think that was IU’s choice...
