You're acting as if a coach is supposed to represent you or any other fans of the Hoosiers,you have to realize this is just college basketball.
Unless coaches have to be forced out by the NCAA like Todd Bozeman or they break the law then they shouldnt be fired for anything other than not winning
if the only thing coaches were responsible for were victories, then the NCAA would serve no purpose. however, the NCAA DOES exist and one main reason is to establish a set of rules that is the same for EVERYONE.
not only did sampson break these rules once, but again WHILE UNDER PROBATION. he is an idiot, and anyone defending him is an idiot too
and while this is just college basketball, to many, college basketball is their peak. college basketball is where dreams live and die. to act as if the head coach doesn't represent the university he/she is employed by is acting out of complete ignorance.
