Fired Bill Carmody: Good news and bad news

Good news and bad news

bad news:
NU got destroyed by a second half 33-6 run on saturday at Purdue. this after actually outrebounding them in the first half and outshooting them 47.6% to 30.4%. but they were down one at the break and it fell apart from there.

more bad news:
one of FCB's spies says the attitude within the athletic department is that "Carmody is well liked and there's a general sense that NU is going to struggle in hoops and that's just how its gonna be." that's exactly what we were afraid of! i don't understand how that anyone can look at the last dozen years of our football program and then just give up on hoops. especially when the mediocre big ten is not running away from anyone and considering that unlike in football, just one or two basketball recruits/players can make all the difference.

good news:
last week we learned that Hank Bienen is calling the shots when it comes to Bill Carmody's future, but that won't be the case after next year.

Hank Bienen's retirement is the first step in the rebuilding of NU basketball program. Step two is for fans to start putting pressure on the Athletic Director!
