And now, the epitaph can be written on Rick Greenspan’s reign of (t) error at Indiana University.
He may not have completely destroyed IU’s basketball program — he had some help — but the misguided athletic director brought one of the nation’s legendary programs to its knees.
Finally, Greenspan is gone, although he will finish out the year as a lame duck, not to mention a dead duck.
Let the celebration at Nick’s begin.
It’s taken a while, and it’s required the added scrutiny of the NCAA’s watchdogs, but we are now getting a clear idea of how thoroughly and painfully mismanaged IU’s basketball program was.
It was bad enough that IU scraped the bottom of the barrel and hired Kelvin Sampson, a guy known far and wide as a cheater. But then the Hoosiers brought him to Bloomington and failed to properly monitor his work, at least according to the NCAA. It was like hiring a burglar to watch your house, then failing to install security cameras.
