Baseball is weird unlike other sports baseball congratulates players for hustle and playing way game supposed to be played. For other sports it is expected. In football do you ever hear a running back getting called out for not hustling on a running play? No. In baseball, a player grounds out and gets cheered to hustling down the line. Weird.

You can probably send it to the AD. Can I be equipment manager if you get hired? ;-)

anyone know who i can send my resume to regarding the MU job?

--- Mankiewicz Andrew-CAM056

No. They can talk to any coach at any time.

does IU have to get permission to talk to him like the nfl?

signed through 2017, but a simple buyout can get them out of it if a
cushy job comes along. Yet, the players have to sit out for a year
when they transfer.

The whole system is garbage...

contract extension thru 2016-17?

so there must have been an exit clause/buyout in the contract?

From: Mankiewicz Andrew-CAM056

That is a major problem in college sports to begin with.
They hold these students to their scholarships, yet coaches can
change jobs at the drop of a hat.

I was fine with Crean heading back to MSU. But, not IU.
Now I hate that program even more.

I agree. Even though I have no connection I am always a
little disappointed when a coach that has something good going moves
on to what are perceived as greener pastures.

From: Z [mailto:aziola@yahoo.com]

i am hurt by this. i hope they get someone good crean took
program up a notch and thought he was gonna stay for long haul

Sorry to see that Crean is leaving. Indiana sure doesn't
look very attractive right now with likely NCAA sanctions and the
possible loss of all 5 starters and Marquette is on the rise. I guess it
must be the money.
