IU’s Big Ten Title Breaks Tom Crean’s Buyout Clock
How much time does a Big Ten title buy?
Is it time to love Tom Crean again? The folks at tomcreanbuyout.com apparently think so. Last year, after the Hoosiers stumbled to a seventh place finish in the Big Ten, the website asked a simple question—“What does Tom Crean’s buyout cost today should he be dismissed from his contract as Indiana University basketball coach?”—and provided a simple answer in the form of a running clock that tallied the price. But after last night’s win at Iowa that cemented a conference-tying 22nd title (hello, Purdue), the tomcreanbuyout.com folks scrapped the clock in favor of a new message:
2016 Big Ten Champions
For Hoosier fans, there’s no time like the present.

Bonus: Seth Davis wants you to man up!
I would love to see the jerk who put up the "buyout meter" on Tom Crean's contract to man up and apologize. Low class and wrong to boot.
