I've got it on good authority that Phil Jackson has found a way to reanimate John Wooden and they'll be co-coaches. Pete Maravich will be lead assistant, primary recruiter, and HC-in-waiting.

If I create a second account to say I've heard the same thing, is it overplayed?

Not sure if joking but TCU is Dixon's alma mater and he just started there this year. Plus he's been recruiting really well there and they've had a solid season. Hope I just didn't pick up on your sarcasm.

No, I wouldn't rather have Groce, but Dixon wouldn't be on my personal list. Not because he's a bad coach. I just don't see him as being a good fit at UI.

Groce is done.

Yes, this account was just created. I created it to say something important.

Groce has officially been fired. Folks have been informed.

You know what? Some of you guys on here are dicks.. There is no need to make smart ass snarky comments to people on here. They might know more about what they are talking about than you do.

It is no wonder this site has lost all of the people who actually did have inside info or knowledge of the game.

Read it and if you don't believe it say you don't, but stop with the know it all attitude.

Point taken. Doesn't have the public aspect to it but that act regarding personnel decisions has been completed.

I'm going to believe you - because it's way more fun that way. Do you also believe Monty is our guy?
