Hoosier Daddy Isn’t So Funny When You Hear It In Prison
Bobby Knight instilled hustle in his Indiana players by chair or slap. Look at former IU basketball radio analyst Todd Leary hustle for that ball. He didn’t want to feel the wrath of Knight. He’s one of those players that took lessons learned on the hardwood and applied them to life.
Knight probably didn’t think Leary would apply his teachings to criminal activities. His former player was arrested and charged with burglary and theft for stealing appliances from foreclosed homes and selling them to an appliance store.
According to a probable cause affidavit, Leary paid two other men to move refrigerators and other appliances out of foreclosed homes and then sold them to an Indianapolis appliance store. When investigators questioned Leary, he allegedly told them that he worked for a company that bought, repaired and then resold foreclosed homes. Leary told police that he picked the homes off an auction listing on the Hamilton County sheriff’s website. But the sheriff’s department denied ever selling any homes to any such company or to Leary, and the homes that were burglarized were tracked to other owners.
Did we mention that he was arrested in February of this year for “misappropriating” almost $1,000,000 from a mortgage company where he was employed? He’s facing up to three years in jail per a plea agreement. The best thing about the February arrest was that it happened at Assembly Hall right before he was supposed to go on air to cover the Purdue-Indiana game.
Leary didn’t waste any time getting back into the groove. That’s the type of hustlin’ that would make Rick Ross proud. Well maybe the annoying homeless guy who tried to sell us an old Playstation and an ankle bracelet on Ludlow St. the other night. Really, homey? I rock Colecovision but I’ll definitely take the bracelet for my friend…yeah my friend.
If Leary hears “Hoosier Daddy” in the prison shower, he better hustle out of there or he’s in big trouble.
