This Crean hate is sad. Save it for somebody that is actually a slime ball like Urban Meyer.
This is how I imagine the next matchup... "Give me tong-po!!!!" Its too bad izzo can't hand that douche bag a loss himself
Nice quote from Roadhouse. +1
If I had to guess, I'd say it was because of the adrenaline. Not just because of the last-second win, but also the culmination of a multi-year effort to turn around a program that was left in shambles when you took over. And with that outright championship milestone reached, he was probably feeling very emboldened at that point and wanted Meyer to know -- I overcame you.
I realize he's coached against him before, but it would be hard to say something when you are a below .500 BT program the last three years (as Crean was.) Everyone realizes Crean is a good coach again, but he was undoubtedly feeling a lot of internal pressure to succeed, if not external. And he probably knew the external pressure would be coming if he didn't live up to expectations this year.
Lot of emotions, I'm sure.
"Tonight, we show the world what this program is made of!" -- Brian Ellerbe on Mar 4, 2000, the night of scUM's 51-point loss to MSU.
Tom Crean = Dwight Schrute.
Crean had a David Hinkley/David Berkowitz type grin on his face....Makes you wonder how stable he is?
"I think the world is run by C students"
Regardless of right or wrong, it's still funny a "cheater" was called out and that he just happens to work for U-M.
He's a brother in law of Jim Harbaugh. What do you think?
What is that, a Titleist? A hole in one...
Beilein's response after the game:
"Michigan is always going to win with class and lose with class"
Rogue Leader= Obese coward who didn't attend MSU and has no college degree
It reminded me of someone rubbing their dog's nose into the accident they had on the rug. Doing that to another human being is just bizarre.
Personally I think he;s a combination of Dwight Shrute and Al Pacino's character from Oceans 13.
Why does almost every Indiana game seem to have some kind of embarrassing fallout afterwords. In the last few weeks we have:
1. Zeller grabbing Nix's arm and pulling it into his own nads.
2. Instructing a player to fake a shot to the head
3. Cutting down the nets after losing
4. And now this
...can't wait to see what comes next as the pressure is going to increase the rest of the way
Has there ever been class in Ann Arbor?

Crean disserves at least a one game suspension in the BTT for the league to say "chill out, shut up, and get over yourself. If your going to act like a three year old, then we are going to give you a timeout like a three year old." But as we all know about Delany's selective enforcement and plays favorites, so that'll never happen.
To whom are you referring?
Anyone. Anyplace. Anytime.
This is what people need to realize about UW fan's feelings toward Crean. There are a lot of Badger fans who live in Milwaukee and they have a lot of stories about horrible Crean was to fans, assistants, and Marquette staff in his time there.
For example, here's a post on Buckyville today:
"i work marquette camps in the summer.. and i've heard 0 good things about Crean from coaches that have worked with him at the camp and former managers. 0."
Add in the oversigning/running kids off, the sore losing, and the hypocritical tweets and there's just very little to like about the guy.
Wisconsin has beaten Crean 9 straight times at Indiana. Izzo has beaten Wisconsin 5 straight times. I'd have Izzo over to my house for dinner tonight and I'd go shopping today to prepare him a nice meal. I'd lock my door and leave Crean on my front porch if he showed up. It has nothing to do with jealousy.

Which one of your players told one of our players to GTF off the court?
Is this thread new? I didn't see it.
I was thinking the same thing.
It can be described with adjectives I rarely get to use: Indiana is whacky and their coach does, says, and instructs his players to do some cockamamy things.
It wouldn't be sports if fans weren't bitching about "class" to distract themselves from a choke job.
At least he apologized. Can wait for him to go after Kelvin
Haha so true though. Not saying were immune but it is funny to watch as an outsider.
Facebook post this morning: (UM Fan) "Stay classy Crean, just remember we get you again on March 16th." (IU Fan) "Yep, and we'll beat that ass again!!"
Huh? Haven't the Badgers beaten IU like a zilly times in a row?
I saw a pretty funny post somewhere about how Beilein is just waiting until Michigan wins something big so he can go after Webber for destroying the program.
