Guess I was wrong on that one. Although I will say this in my defense: One way to get rid of a coach before final NCAA findings while simultaneously avoiding a future lawsuit is to negotiate a substantial financial buyout of his contract in which he agrees never to sue the university for wrongful termination. If only Barbara Hedges had been smart enough to think of that. Lucky for us, she didn’t.
And don’t think this necessarily is going to derail the Hoosiers’ season, either. Dan Dakich is an Indiana guy who coached at Bowling Green for 10 years. He’s a good coach, and the players might just rally around him. Remember Michigan and Steve Fisher in 1989? Yeah, the rest of the Big Ten does, too.
