The person rooting the hardest for Miller to succeed is Fred Glass, the IU athletic director. Glass has been the athletic director for the past 10 years. He is not well liked by the fan base. The fans are restless over the lack of success of both the football program and the basketball program under Glass. Multi-millions have been poured into the football program to make it competitive in the B10, the results of which are multiple coaching changes and few conference wins under Glass. Basketball has fared little better in the eyes of the fans. If Miller is not "deep tourney run" successful in the next two years, Glass will not survive. If the big money boosters force a Glass firing, Miller will be gone as well. Both of their futures at IU are riding on two seasons, if not one season, of basketball.

I suspect many schools and players go through these problems and we never hear about it. It has to tear some teams to pieces, especially if the coach is not adept at handling the soft side of basketball.

One thing Archie has done is to recruit five excellent kids from Indiana for this year and next. May not let him win more, but it satisfies a certain crowd.
