I thought this was an interesting take from a presumably neutral party (other than that he apparently holds Weber's methods in high regard and thinks very little of Sampson's, but that's a perfectly reasonable stance for a neutral party to take):

"NCAA needs to send a message"

Ex-IU star calls for coach's firing.

Kent Benson's opinion kinda carries a little weight. Good to see that there's at least a little backlash against Sampson from within Hoosier nation.

Obviously it won't happen right now- if he gets in any more trouble, I wouldn't be surprised; I'd say there's no way Sampson would be that stupid, but I'm not confident in saying that-

True, but most coaches are.

Meh. They aren't representative of our fanbase. Not saying me and my more laid-back ways are any more representative.

Most fanbases are pretty much the same.

Back onto something about bball, how many games back will Illinois finish behind MSU in the Big 10 this season?

And what seed will Illinois get with some of the troubles?

I haven't even looked at the conference schedule yet, so I can't say. There's very little concrete to say about Illinois at this point. We'll see if someone emerges to handle the SG spot, or if McCamey and Frazier can coexist successfully as a starting backcourt; we'll see how good Rodney Alexander is, if Mike Tisdale can handle himself physically, if Randle's health holds up for once, etc.

About the only givens on this team are that Shaun Pruitt will score in the post and Chester Frazier will play harder than just about anyone alive, and that's about it.

It may be a month into the season before I have a good feel on this team.

I hope Calvin Brock turns into a mean towel-waver that Big 10 has never seen before.
