The first three CTC years, along with the last 20 years are a very real historical record and accurately reflect on the incompetency of the IU athletic administration above CTC.
Since 2010-2011, 11th, 5th, 1st, 8th and 7th are definitely not first rate with those results and that is also a very real historical record and reflects the competency of both the IU administration AND CTC, over that recent shorter period of time. Fandom may tolerate that record, but is not elite or excellent by any reality based measurement.
Reality based prior records of CTC’s performance give little suggestion as to elite future results. The notion that his abilities would somehow be augmented by the current competencies at IU has little supportive evidence (see the administrative impact during Mike Davis and Sampson tenures). IU now has a long enough history of mediocrity that it extends beyond the life spans of current recruits. Hopeful words from Fred Glass will not change reality. Improved competencies at all levels will . The apathy level at IU, at all levels, suggests that only luck will lead to meaningful change.
