Fresh off a thoroughly embarrassing end to their campaign, Indiana has fired men’s basketball coach Tom Crean after nine seasons.

Legendary former Indiana men’s basketball coach Bob Knight coached Indiana for 29 seasons until he was fired by the Hoosiers in 2000 over allegations that he was being an abusive asshole to his players.

No. 13 Indiana hosted No. 3 North Carolina last night in a game in which members of the 1981 Hoosier team—the Isiah Thomas-led bunch that won the championship that season by whipping the Tar Heels in the final—were on hand 1) to be honored for their past triumph before this game, and 2) to watch a mini-recreation of…
Indiana backup quarterback Zander Diamont didn’t specify how many concussions he’s had due to football, but he ballparked it at “a lot.” The junior has decided to step away from the sport after the Hoosiers’ bowl game. Diamont’s reasons were simple and sound. From the Indianapolis Star:
The Mastodons of Fort Wayne sent Indiana back to Bloomington with its first loss of the season after an overtime shocker that resulted in one IPFW student... drinking bleach?
