Yeah, I know, he only attended IU for a couple of weeks (thanks Benson). But it's time to right this ship. Look, Xavier's Miller has recently started a nice tradition of beating Purdue and Bennett's throttling of Notre Dame was impressive. But the time for screwing around at Indiana (note: Davis and Sampson) has come and gone. We've got the cash (thanks Cuban and Cougar!!), it's time to make it happen. And Larry-legend will make it happen.
It's been suggested that Larry would be able to recruit Indiana. You think? It's also been suggested that Larry might not be able to recruit outside of Indiana? Are you kidding me? You're going to tell me that Devin Ebanks wouldn't know exactly who Larry Bird is?? That's crazy-talk, he'd probably drop a deuce in his shorts at the chance to play for Larry Bird.
Now, I'm not entirely enthralled with NBA coaches with no Collegiate experience, Wittman and Skiles need not apply. But we're talking about Larry Bird. The man knows how to play the game, anyone who thinks he couldn't X & O / motivate a team in D-1 College Hoops is probably flat-out wrong.
C'mon home Larry; it's time for the final stage of your amazing legacy.
