IU Players threaten to quit

Report: Indiana players threaten to quit team

A meeting between Indiana University athletic director Rick Greenspan and the Hoosiers basketball team Thursday night turned rancorous when players threatened to quit if Kelvin Sampson is removed, CBSSports.com reports.

Two sources told the website that Greenspan met with players to prepare them for today's official announcement that Sampson would either be suspended or terminated. Before Greenspan was finished speaking, a player stood up and said, "if Sampson ain't coaching, we ain't playing."

The sources' account says Greenspan then rhetorically asked if he should just cancel the whole season. The player responded, "We don't care what you do. But if Sampson ain't coaching, we ain't playing. Then the players walked out.

There are 30+ thousand people on Campus... I'm sure replacements can be found  who don't want to cheat.
