Not that it comes as a surprise, but I did enjoy having a coach whom I could respect.

Yeah, I like Mike Davis. I think he is a great person who overcame a handicap (stuttering). I think he is a good recruiter too, but I no longer think he is a good coach for Indiana University.

Unfortunately, those Sycamores are struggling too, but we're used to that.

It looks like Mike Davis at IU made about as much sense as a Law School at Indiana State.

Well, I wouldn't go that far. The players wanted Davis to be coach after the firing of Knight. We had a lot of talent on that team and we were able to go through a volatile coaching change with little player turnover. That's pretty rare.

Davis took that team to the National Championship game. I know they were Knight's players, but he did a great job and deserved the position. Unfortunately, that was the high point.
