I don't think anyone is necessarily denying that he's a great coach and recruiter. He learned from the best and is all class with things regarding Izzo and MSU.
It was just in poor taste the way he handled it. Embarrassing for him and the team IMO. Your kids just won the B10 outright with an incredible comeback. It should be their moment, don't spoil the celebration for them and your school by acting like a 17 year old girl.
Crean's better than that. Plain and simple.

Yeah, he should have done this out of camera range. Sometimes his emotions cause bad decisions. His players probably love this part of him though.
Crean has simply turned into Jim Harbaugh. He is now just a more amped up version of what he's always been. Part of the deal with him. Manic, intense, and he does not care who he pisses off. Funny that he stole Bo's The Team nonsense, and funnier still that Harbaugh is often behind the bench at Assembly Hall. The B1G better get used to Crean, he isn't going away.
Anyone. Anyplace. Anytime.
I'm with you. Meyer was a cheater at IU and Crean called him out for it. Crean also has called out the Big Ten for not being consistent in how it does its players of the weak.
I don't like how Crean seems to instruct his players to fake injuries, but I have no problem with the other stuff.
Probably true about his players. There is no doubt that he's beloved by them.
Oh well, he's younger yet I'm sure he'll learn.
I think there's something off putting about winning the outright Big 10 and immediately rubbing it in the face of one of Sampson's former assistants. Is Meyer a snake? Yes. That wasn't the time and place to do that, though.
So when we play Alabama in football in a couple years, maybe Dantonio can similarly confront Bobby Williams after the game...
Watch Meyer destroy UofMs program. Yay!

Swing and a HIGH DRIVE INTO DEEP CENTER....ITS GONE! A HOME RUN POST!!
I hate cheating I'm glad Crean had the stones to call a cheater out. Wolvie no!!!
There is a right and wrong way to handle known cheats. Do what Crean did and publicly call them out or what Izzo has done and spend the next 20 years dismantling the offending program to the point that "They don't wanna play basketball no mo".
Why now? This is the 8th time Crean has coached against Meyer sine he "helped wreck the program".
Remind yourself. Nobody built like you, you design yourself.
is it possible that Meyer said something to provoke Crean?
If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day.
Bobby Williams cheated? Please elaborate.
Is this the first time he has seen Meyer since taking the IU job??
This is spot on IMO. If you hate the guy that much why not yell at him two or three seasons ago? Why wait until your team is great and just dealt them a devastating loss? It's not that big of deal but it does seem kinda low class and vindictive. I used to like Crean but I'm slowly turning the other way on him. His players clearly like to fake injuries and even when his team is great he needs to bring up nonsense. Your players seem to do just fine letting their play do the talking... all this other stuff is just stupid.

pretty much all true....a ton of good posts in this thread. This guy is an insufferable DOUCHE. Classless stunt yesterday that took away from his team's win and Big Ten Championship. Attention whore x 10
I think it was just the 40 diet cokes speaking, you guys. he prolly felt bad about it after he came down.
And is he going to do this publicly to the former HC?? I would like see him track Kelvin down and do that
Damned near got sucked in by Nucky.
Too bad Nucky can't be locked down in a place without electricity and internet
Michigan employs proven cheaters in their basketball program? Color me shocked.
When IU plays the Houston Rockets, I guess we'll find out.
You really think Sampson gets another NCAA job after what he did?
Agreed. He's an effing dickbag. He's always been like that, it's just now he has a bigger spotlight to bask in.
UW fan inferiority complex always shows up when Crean is mentioned.
Karsch is really, really butthurt and turning the whole thing into a Crean bitchfest.
