Hoosiers Win, Crean is Crean and Twitter reacts

OK, let’s take a day off of the dumpster fire formally known as Louisville basketball and talk about a team that will actually be playing in March, the Indiana Hoosiers.

What a night in B-Town last night.  The #4 ranked Iowa Hawkeyes (a team I had not seen play yet this year because why would you ever choose to watch Iowa sports) came to town to test Coach Tom Crean and the boys.  The Hall was rocking, Dicky V was Dicky Ving, Crean was doing this

and IU was able to hold on for a much needed win to help out the cause come seeding time.

Win, lose are draw I always love going to Twitter afterwards to see what people are saying about the most antagonizing and polarizing coach in college sports, Tom Crean.  I mean, just look at him.

You would think this is a face that only a mother could love.  I know I can’t be the only one that wants to go Jimmy Dugan on him and treat him like Stillwell Angel when he starts pacing up and down the bench.

But after wins like the one last night Coach Tom Crean certainly has his supporters and is getting some serious love from Hoosier Nation.  No matter what side of the fence you fall on when I comes to CTC, the Twitter feed amuses me and here are some of my favorites from last night.

See, I told you people are not afraid to show there Tom Crean love.

Looks like Alex agrees with me.

More love for coach but saying it would be a set back if he was gone might be a reach.  Oh well, you get the point.  Michael loves him some Crean.

So I’m not sure if this a complement or not?

OK, I have to admit I have no idea who Dean Lewis is and if this is a good thing or not but it made me laugh either way.

I don’t think I have to go out on a limb here, Mike is not a fan.

An Iowa fan from West Des Moines.

So as you can see there is love in the air for a segment of Indiana and college basketball fans for Tommy Boy and after a big win I don’t blame them.  I still get the since though much of Hoosier Nation is taking a wait and see approach with their coach before jumping back on the CTC bandwagon.

Either way last night was a perfect example of why college basketball is so much fun so no matter where Crean takes IU this year, make sure you enjoy the ride.
