Rumors of Mike Davis' demise

have been greatly exaggerated?

Two hours before Davis' Hoosiers tipped off against Ball State, Indianapolis television station WISH-TV reported that Davis would probably be fired if Indiana lost to Ball State on Tuesday and that Hoosier boosters were organizing a buyout of Davis' contract.

Indiana University athletic department spokesperson Pete Rhoda said that WISH-TV report was bogus. Indiana athletic director Rick Greenspan used stronger language to deny the report of Davis' imminent firing. "I don't like dignifying B.S.," Greenspan said. "I'm not dodging anybody. I don't like to dignify crap."

Fair enough. I'm pleased to see the IU administration defend Davis (for a change). But given Indiana's six-game losing streak (snapped last night with a win against Ball State) and an increasingly frustrated fan base, it is only a matter of time before Mike Davis is shown the door. If the boosters haven't yet organized a buyout of his contract, they will soon.
