Tom Crean went off on Michigan assistant coach Jeff Meyer following Indiana’s 72-71 win in Ann Arbor Sunday that gave the Hoosiers the Big Ten title outright. Crean, feeling elated following his team’s comeback win, approached Meyer as the Michigan assistant was talking with current Indiana assistant coach Tim Buckley, and scolded him. “You know what you did,” Crean barked at Meyer while pointing his finger. “You helped wreck our program!” Meyer and Buckley seemed to be sharing a pleasant conversation following the game, but Crean’s berating of Meyer broke that up quickly. Crean was so animated that Buckley had to pull him away and even tried to block a camera from recording more of the exchange. When asked after the game about the exchange, Crean was vague. “It’s a heated game. Go ask him,” he told the media. Crean’s words to Meyer were a reference to Meyer’s history as a former Indiana assistant coach under Kelvin Sampson from 2006-2008. Multiple recruiting violations by Sampson and his staff led to the Hoosiers being placed on probation for three years. Crean took over the program from Sampson and endured three straight losing seasons. It took until his fourth season at Indiana to produce a winning team. Finally winning a conference championship five years later — especially by beating Meyer’s team — must have been extraordinarily satisfying for Crean. The big smile on his face after he walked away from Meyer should have told you that. Recall that Indiana went 1-17 in conference in his first season and was an utter mess. He has taken the program from the bottom to the top. I have absolutely no problem with what he did to Meyer and completely understand where he was coming from.

  • Good for Crean.....I think this douche Myers deserves to be called out especially since he was complicit in destroying my beloved Hoosier's program......Crean, you're AWESOME!!
  • I don't really understand it. Everybody knew the type of coach Sampson was before IU hied hired him; IU caused their own problem by hiring him.

    Besides, if Sampson and company had not done what they did Crean would have never got the coaching job at IU. More likely there is bad blood from something else.
  • What an a$$hole! He knows full well that assistant coaches have almost no say in how a program is run. If I were Meyer, I'd've punched Crean's lights out.
  • Get over it Crean. Your acting like a two year old. Your lucky this guy didn't hall off and smack you in your ignorant head.

Justin Hunter on Mariota: He's a real good quarterback

Optimism around the NFL is taken to a whole new level during the summer months.

Louis Murphy: Jameis Winston reminds me of Tim Tebow

Louis Murphy is probably the only wideout to have played with both Tim Tebow and Jameis Winston, and he sees some similarities between the Heisman winners. “I just saw how much of a competitor he is. He competes,” Murphy said, via NFL.com. He doesn’t like losing. He wants to win and that’s a guy I want to play with. He’s young, kind of similar to Tim Tebow in a way,...

Zuccarello lost ability to speak after taking puck to head

New York Rangers forward Mats Zucarrello suffered one of scariest hockey injuries in recent memories, which certainly is saying a lot. Zuccarello missed a good chunk of the Rangers’ playoff to the Eastern Conference finals after he was struck in the head with a shot from teammate Ryan McDonagh in New York’s first-round series with the Pittsburgh Penguins. As you could see...

McCown pleased to not have QB battle with Manziel

Last year saw the Cleveland Browns wait until nearly the start of the regular season to name Brian Hoyer the team’s starting quarterback over Johnny Manziel. There doesn’t seem to be a similar battle this year, as veteran Josh McCown will assuredly be under center for Week 1. With his role clearly defined, McCown weighed in on the Browns’ decision: “More than anything...

Will Tony Romo have a better year than he did in 2014?

This article is definitely all about Tony Romo, what he did during the 2014 NFL season, and what he should be able to do in 2015 with this current line-up, but we should probably start with how the offensive unit lost one of their best asset in former #29 DeMarco Murray. We can absolutely all agree that Murray had by far one of the best seasons for a running back in at least ten...
