5 p.m.: The overall tone, to this point, has been pretty simple: Yes, Greenspan and the basketball program made serious mistakes. But the “failure to monitor” allegation is something no one in Bloomington is ready to accept. Greenspan said the NCAA investigators told IU officials that there would be no charge like this.Crean was just asked his first question. “I am extremely disappointed I am only going to work with (Rick) another six months,” Crean said. “We are rebuilding a team, and we are certainly rebuilding a culture inside that team. But we are not rebuilding a program. “We’re building for the long haul. And that’s the stance we are going to take.”And we’re done. Exactly 20 minutes.
4:50 p.m.: Tom Crean has just sat down at the table with McRobbie and Greenspan. Greenspan just said part of his decision was because too much focus was on him, and the department, rather than the accomplishments of the student-athletes.He also just deflected a question of whether or not, if he had to do it over again, he would hire Kelvin Sampson.”It’s extremely regrettable that the actions of a few have brought disappointment to so many,” Greenspan said. Also interesting was a major question mark an hour ago â€” why leave in December, and not now? Greenspan said is there still work to be done, and he looks forward to the football season.
4:45 p.m.: We’re underway here. The focus continues to be on what Greenspan did to clean up the financial picture of the athletics department.”I want to be absolutely clear that this is Rick’s decision,” said IU president Michael McRobbie. McRobbie said he is upset about the new charge against IU, and that the university will “vigorously” defend itself.Early in his prepared statement (literally, he read it from a sheet of paper he held up), Greenspan said the most obvious statement of the year at IU.” My four years here have been challenging and never boring,” Greenspan said.
4:35 p.m.: There are about 60 people, mainly IU officials and the media, inside the Hoosier Room, awaiting the start of today’s press conference to officially announce the resignation of athletics director Rick Greenspan, effective at the end of the year. We were scheduled to start five minutes ago, but it appears we are waiting on members of the Indianapolis media to arrive.Internet service is spotty down here, but I am going to attempt to keep all of you informed of what is going on during this presser.
