Going out on a limb...

Even though my colleges may believe Sampson will be fired in the next couple of days, and other major blogs feel the same way, I will not go there. I'm making a stand.

Kelvin Sampson will not be fired this season.

Why? They are 20 and 4 right now. Plus they are looking at a possible 5/6 seed in the tourney. Yeah, they have lost every single game against ranked opponents so far... But I don't think that's enough.

I look at it this way. You are on an airplane 36,000 feet in the sky on your way to Cancun. Your pilots have been drinking Grey Goose straight out of the bottle. You know they shouldn't be behind the controls. But what are you going to do? Can you fly the plane? Can the stewardesses? Can the rest of the passengers? Nope. You just cross your fingers and hope for the best.

Cancun = March Madness
Pilots = Coach Sampson
You = Astute observer
Stewardesses = Assistant coaches
Passengers = Indiana fans

IU doesn't want this.
