INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - It's been one wild day in the world of college basketball.

Seconds after Notre Dame and Princeton opened the 2017 NCAA tournament, Zach Osterman of the Indy Star broke the news that Indiana fired Tom Crean after nine seasons.

"It doesn't change anything for me. I'm wondering, I'm curious who the new coach will be," fan Craig Hixon said.

The news gave IU fans a lot to talk about during tournament season as they watched other teams take the court.

"I'm excited about the change even though I like Tom Crean, I think he's a great guy," Bob Kort said.

"I'm hopeful that we will get back to the level they were when I grew up, consistently great," Brad Cohen said.

Radio host JMV fielded call after call of people sounding off on the move.

"Fans are all for it, I mean mostly all for it. There are a couple here or there that suggest maybe Tom Crean did enough with a Big 10 title a year ago but most are for a change," he said.

Twitter quickly turned into a hot bed of opinions, here's a variety of some reactions around the Internet today:
