Just when we thought we were out, Archie pulls us back in. With the head man headed to Bloomington, an emergency cast just had to transpire. So much content squeezed into this one, you’re not even going to believe it. The podcast gets off to a rousing start, as Gem City legend F. Zappa gives us his thoughts on the Archie departure. Zappa, to be sure, brings the heat. The gentlemen provide their emotional reactions to the news. The foursome all agree: Miller was smart to jump.

Donny plays a clip of an Indiana fan, who seems kinda wishy-washy on the new Hoosier coach. The foursome reacts with some vigor, who exactly did Indiana think they were going to hire? Kevin keeps saying Greg Paulus when he means Travis Steele. The discussion turns to Dayton’s search: who’s in the mix, what recruits will stick around? McKinley Wright? The boys don’t think he’ll ever wear red and blue. Sully poses the question — who would be the one coach you’d like to have at Dayton for just one season? 

To close, Blackburn wants a full-scale teardown. No Ostrom, no Kuwik. Donoher shuts the cast down with another Hot or Not, Krysten Ritter. Kev puts out a Twitter request.

I like the guy’s complaint about Archie being an “uninspiring” hire. These are the same people who wanted an “Indiana Guy” and piss and moan about the coach needing to recruit in-state kids. Do these rubes think that an all-Indiana team is going to do anything?

This is like Marty McFly being called CHICKEN in the movie Back to The Future 2………Hearing constantly:
“YOU CAN MAKE A FINAL FOUR AT INDIANA” ……”THERE ARE GREATER EXPECTATIONS AT INDIANA THAN AT DAYTON”……”YOU CAN RECRUIT BETTER PLAYERS AT INDIANA THAN AT DAYTON”……..even john miller commenting that “michigan st gets better recruits than Dayton can’t get”……..No wonder Bob Knight said what he said about that place??

Never hire someone you can’t fire. Anthony Grant is the spotted owl of Dayton basketball. You get him and it’s over folks.

2 of my favorite posts on UDPride when people were speculating who would take the IU job. I can’t make this shit up. Apparently Nike didn’t want to keep him “in the family” and IU’s Adidas contract had no affect on job perception. “I’ve often wondered how much the Nike cabal, Adidas Cabal and now Under Armor Cabal affect coaching moves. How much pull does Nike have in Archie’s (or other coaching) decisions? How do those contracts and influences work? I doubt its spoken about in the open, but I’m sure Nike would prefer to keep Sean and Archie in… Read more »

My degree just lost half its value with those 2 posts.

I believe Bob Knight’s explosion on IU three weeks ago led to Archie taking the job at IU. Poor Steve “Stockholm’s Syndrome” Alford feared the wrath of the General, so he backed away from showing interest in the IU job to remain in his good graces.
