I know he was once a Spartan, but the dives in consecutive games (Zeller vs. us and Sheehey vs. Minnesota) make me think it is coached.
The replay showed that Sheehey didn't even get touched, and we have all examined the Zeller incident. IMO, they should get a tech for that bush league garbage!
Yeah, I have respect for Indiana, but 2 in a row doesn't look good to me. Out of a timeout, I have to believe it was either coached or encouraged.
The rules state that a "flop" is a technical foul. I haven't seen it called in some time, but I would have like for that to have been called a tech. It would end that crap right away.
They have to change the rule and make it a Tech against the flopper for stopping the game to look at the replay.

And beyond what Dakich said, it is truly remarkable when you watch the film, how Crean seemed to point to Nix-Zeller before it happened.
Dan Kilbridge @MSUDanK
Wow, @GWNeis might be on to something. Rewind to TO before Sheehey face flop and Crean raises and swings both elbows in huddle.
Jonathan Falls @spartanjonny
@joerexrode I am positive Crean told Sheheee to take a fall there. I may have picture evidence shortly.

Dan Dakich on Zeller bringing Nix's arm to his groin last week: "Indiana fans didn't want to believe it, but the film certainly showed it."
Flopping is rooted way more in the individual player than the coach. I've played with plenty of guys that flop, but I damn well didn't. Stop blaming this on Crean.
well maybe I'm a dumbass.
Cream ran on the damn court while the play was still live in our game. He was literally at the 3pt line before the refs finally stopped play. He should have been T'ed up in our game for that regardless.
I like Crean.....but I'm thinking he coaches this....it's beyond a coincidence.
I'm pretty sure he showers everyday, but you never know with some of these B1G coaches We all saw Matta eat his gum off the floor before.

He totally does and when he does it he gets off his chair and hides under the players. Then he gets back on his chair and the only thing I can make out lip reading is "get a foul!"
This guy is dirty.
Seconds later She-he tranny is holding his jaw like its broke and then has a sad face after the refs get together and one of them it appears says to She-he that it was a flop.
Here's a pic. Looks like Crean may be showing team how one of their faces could potentially meet an elbow

After two guys try to draw techs on some sort of flop you have to start thinking it's in the coaching. It's going to severely hurt their good faith with refs, especially ones that wouldn't ordinarily ref their games come tournament time.

Yep. He is a piece of shit, Jim Harbaugh wannabe. The Sheehemale antics were the clincher.
Zeller got what he deserved tonight. He is a scrub. Mbakwe scared him tonight. He was relegated to jump shots against us last week. He cant handle physical play.
The nba team that wastes a lottery pick on him deserves to fail.
Well, tRCMB... you have the power.... let the world know...
Edit: Mods, it's OK it we slime a coach other than our own, right?

Rexrode just made an interesting point on twitter. He said if you watch the replay of the Nix/Zeller incident it looks like Crean points to it before it even happens like it was their plan all along. Crazy shit
Funny I just came on hear to post this. Clearly Crean shows elbows up move in Time Out before Sheehey flop. Thought to myself that should be a Tech on Indiana. Not sure if Tom was always that way or maybe too much time with Jim Harbaugh?
Wow. We need a lip reader
Take the fall!
I just watched it again. I am about 99% sure Crean told his guys to take a dive. When the play happened, Crean stayed next to the official and then immediately pointed to his face like he was saying his guy got elbowed.
It isn't the end of the world, but there is a difference between coaching taking a charge and embellishing (which I don't like either) and having players try to draw tech's on the other team. Not cool.
