Lawrence Central’s Shelt: Hollowell happy at IU


Lawrence Central coach J.R. Shelt said he doesn’t know why Jeremy Hollowell, his former player, has been held out of his last two games at Indiana. He said the one thing he does know is that the 6-foot-8, 217-pound swingman appears happy at Indiana and isn’t looking to transfer.

“Absolutely not,” Shelt said. “I think if he were looking to transfer, I think he would have contacted me about it. I’ve been down to two games, and he played more in one game than the other. He’s happy. He’s never once said to me, ‘Man I wish I were playing more.’ Every kid wants to play, but he’s happy with the program, happy with the coaching staff, happy with the school. I don’t think there’s a transfer situation. I think people are reaching for straws. I think Coach Crean will eventually come out and tell everybody what it was, and until then, it’s not for me or anyone else to speculate.”

In that light, Shelt said he hasn’t pressed for information on the reason Hollowell has been held out.

“I try to stay out of it,” he said. “No one’s contacted me about it, neither Jeremy or his mom. From what I’m reading, it’s just a personal thing, so I just sent a text to Jeremy, saying, ‘Keep your head up, kid.’ He said, ‘OK coach, I will.’ … That’s all I know. I’m just trying to support the kid and the program he’s at.”

    Twitter sources are saying the NCAA is looking at JH’s eligibility. If I recall, once he committed he was selling The Movement t-shirts, hope he and/or his family didn’t try any other entrepreneurial endeavors while he’s been at IU.

    I’ll reach out to my contact at the NCAA but she was just let go so I’m not sure she’ll have any current info.

    Coach Crean specifically said it was NOT an academic, behavioral or discipline issue and that it was a personal & private matter. That doesn’t equal NCAA issues unless he is intentionally misleading us, which I find unlikely.

    The fact something is reported on ‘Twitter’ makes it suspect in my opinion.

    Coach misleading us unlikely? LOL. Now that’s a good one.

    Who knows. Everyone seems to have “sources” these days. Hopefully he won’t miss any league play, or very little.

    Oh, what a surprise. Debbie the Crean-hating troll returns in yet another attempt to disparage IU’s coach.

    Give it a break, Debbie. It’s Christmas season. You’re drivel is out of fashion.

    Hell, Debbie is Crean’s biggest fan compared to HH.

    I can’t imagine why Debbie would post here anymore. Anything with her name on it and everyone immediately thinks, “Oh look. It’s the clueless little troll.”

    How humiliating.

    I thought you guys “ignored” her like you tell me to ignore HH.

    Too bad you don’t say the same thing to him when he accuses Crean, and our players, of being the biggest bigots in the country.

    And as a player/person, I’d rather be labeled “lazy” than a hateful bigot.

    When Debbie spreads that lie 24/7 like HH does, let me know.

    And, I do think she’s worthless……..just surprised she gets your wrath while saying “Who cares what he thinks so just ignore him” when it comes to HH when he’s faaaaaaaaaar worse than her.

    Maybe because because she gets a kick out of you.

    Aruss,

    Is the gal you refer to the one fired because her boyfriend could not keep his mouth shut about the inside info he heard from her?

  • Podunker #13


    Sunday, December 23, 2012 - 1:49 PM EST

    Larry, the only thing Debbie the troll ever posts are derogatory comments about IU and/or Crean. HforH makes a lot of comments on a variety of issues other than his disdain for Crean.

  • Laffy #14


    Sunday, December 23, 2012 - 2:36 PM EST

    So?

    What he says about Crean, and the players, is faaaaaaaaaaaar worse.

    And 10,000 times more often.

  • boise st. broncos #15


    Sunday, December 23, 2012 - 2:38 PM EST

    Podonke, totally agree about H4H. He’s the best thing that has ever happened to this blog plus he really has no disdain for Crean — in fact I believe his support for Crean easily exceeds the “support” offered by Chet, you and Taso combined simply because Harvard’s is real.

    I’d ask what Larry you’re talking to but then you’d start again blabbing about your phone and your minor in films so let’s just ignore that for now.

    Crean: banner or hell in 2013, you hear me? Merry Christmas.
