Folks were upset we didn't get Archie. Frankly, I think we got the better coach.

Part of that is sheer luck. IIRC, IU didn't even try to talk to Holtmann.

: If he was going to fire Thad, he should have done it right after the season.


: Obviously, it was ultimately the right decision - just one made a couple of months too late.

Not sure anything would be any different. If anything the timing saved us from hiring Archie, which I think would have been a mistake.
