News broke today that Tom Crean will try and 1-up both John Calipari and Roy Williams in pursuit of super recruit Julius Randle. Earlier in the week we learned that Roy and Cal showed off their bling bling in hopes to impress Mr. Randle. Tom Crean will not be outdone. First, he is bringing the greatest accomplishment Indiana has ever received with him, the 2012 ESPY for Play of the Year. Second, Tom is going promise Julius loving text messages once a week. He thinks that text messages like ” I’ve been thinking about you a lot. A whole lot…” will make Randle feel more comfortable with him.
(OK, this isn’t real. You caught me. It’s just a spoof. I don’t believe Indiana is anywhere on Julius Randle’s radar. It is pretty funny though….. Go Big Blue !)
