After the game, Jeff Meyer, a former IU assistant under Kelvin Sampson at IU, felt the verbal wrath of nut ball Tom Crean!

I think it is great because it oh so true. Good for Crean defending his program.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder
Crean is just an idiot. I'm not sure what he hopes to accomplish by yelling at a guy who was an assistant coach at Indiana 7 years ago. The guy just loves attention, and looking like Dwight Schrute.
Did you see the look on his face when he turned around and headed back? A bit psychotic. LOL
haha the Dwight Schrute comparison is so spot on! Im not sure why he is upset at this guy, if the Indiana program hadn't been wrecked Crean wouldnt have this job.
I think it's awesome. Sampson was as shady of a coach as their has ever been and Walker was right there in the mix with him. My best friend played hoops for IU under Knight and I remember him saying how it was just a matter of time with Sampson and staff until something happens and how it was such a bad hire. I like the fact that Crean didn't just shake the guys hand and wish him well......screw that.
He was being a dick. There is a reason nobody likes him among his peers. And it's not because he "defends his program".

,,,it's probably hard for him to keep pace with his brothers-in-law...........
Crean is Batsh*t crazy and lacks any class.
I wouldn't have had an issue with it but the way he smiled/smirked after he walked off irritated me. It seemed like he was saying you wrecked this and I fixed it, almost like an ego appeasement type display which is inline with what we know of Crean.
Crean is a douche and needs his ass kicked...where is Woody when we need him..
What would have happend if Michigan hadn;t choked? ha ha,......
He seems to be the most vulnerable to irrational outbursts right after a game ends. The "brush-by" handshake and now this. IU would do well to keep a tight leash on this guy as he seems ready to erupt at any time and is out of control when he does go off. The timing of this episode seems really strange. I don't understand why you wouldn't just celebrate the great victory your players just earned for you and your school on the court? Instead you feel it necessary to dredge up some ancient history and try to connect it to some assistant coach, why? Maybe to garner some camera time for yourself. Makes him look like a dope and a bully. At some point maybe someone will give him a well deserved shot in the chops. Until then he is the Hoosiers problem and just a minor annoyance for the rest of us. Too bad,though, IU basketball is a program I root for when they are not playing tOSU. This douche seems bent on self destruction which does not bode well for IU and diminishes their image. Not to mention that his coaching skills have come into question over the last week and a half. Guess we will wait-and-see on this one.
Crean is borderline psychotic and I'm being serious. What would prompt him to do something like that after a win? I could *almost* understand it after a loss. You're upset and your emotions get the best of you. Also, this isn't a one-time thing for Crean. In his brief history at IU, he already has a lengthy list of classless/low-rent moves.
Furthermore, doesn't this dolt understand that if Sampson and Co. didn't cheat and get caught, there wouldn't have been a job opening at IU? He owes that Michigan assistant coach a "thank you." Ha.
I love that this fool was caught on camera. You can see at the end he sees the camera and tries to smile; pretend like nothing happened.
He's a complete looney tune.
"Our" program? Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't Crean at Marquette at that time? IU was not a thought in any one of Crean's brain cells when Sampson wrecked the Indiana program. Even if what he says is true, his lack of class is obvious to everyone, even some IU fans. I would love to be a fly on the wall when Crean has "family discussions" with Jim Harbaugh. The neck veins would get a workout.
what a jackass and an embarrassment. I am glad our coach is a class act and would never make an ass of himself or the University like Crean just did.
If I were an official I would go up to him before the game andlet him know there are 2 things I am not gonna tolerate from you
1. Keep your ass off the floor...if I catch you 1000000000 feet out on the floor I will warn you and the 2nd time I am gonna throw a T at you...the 3rd...your gone.
2. If I see your players flopping or throwing peoples hands to their stomach trying to draw a foul...the 1st time is a technical for sportsmanlike behavior and the 2nd time they will be ejected...
He needs to get over it.
This whole episode is unbecoming of an elite coach. Give me the name of one 'elite' coach who you would witness engaged in this type of behavior after a top 10 match up where there were no tensions or brawls between the teams during the game.
Perhaps, he is trying to be the second coming of Coach Knight. The problem is that guys like Knight or Huggins have scary tempers and Crean has a whiny/pathetic one.

To answer your question "What would prompt him to do something like that after a win?"... the same thing that would prompt him to have his team cut down the nets after getting their jocks handed to them in a loss to our beloved Buckeyes! The guy is a total whack-job!
crean shoulda just thrown a chair across the court in protest.... coulda sent the same message and no one woulda made a big deal out of it...

Knight's temper, of course, was ledgendary. However, as I recall he treated his opponent with respect and congratulations (except for sCUM's Bill Frieder who screwed BK). Crean is classless as his evidence of blow-bys in losses to Matta, more than once, and other coaches other than Izzo. IMO, Izzo whines but he is a class coach and respects the other coaches in vicotry and defeat. Crean failed to p/u that part of Izzo's teachings! As for the game, Bielien is officially a Michigan Man as he continues to blow big games. Neither of these team's play D like tOSU and I think the tournament will not be a long journey for Hoosiers or UM.
Seriously, it's uncanny.
