• One of my favorite players on the team. Great work ethic and bright student….but law school – ouch….surely he could do better than that…

  • HoosierTrav

    really excited that we have this group of veterans to mentor the extremely talented group we have coming in. I really cant recall a team that returned this solid of a veteran core and added 5 extremely talented freshman. Not to mention one per position. The only conceivable mismatch i can see us having at one position next season would be size at the point guard position. But…… one skill can eliminate that mismatch.. that is elite speed. Need i say anymore?

    From the way CTC played the NCAA tourney games last year, it looks to me like Yogi and VO will split time running the point. Hulls and Creek will split time at the 2, and Sheehey and Watford will split time at the 3. We are set up to run a Miami Heat style offense with Yogi and VO breaking down and collapsing the D to kick out for Watford, Sheehey, Hulls, and Creek to go bombs away on people. The thing that sets Will Sheehey apart from the other 3, is that as the defender rushes to close out on him, he has the athleticism to drive past them for the dunk or Cody dump off. If Mo Creek can get back to 100%, that is ANOTHER dude who can do the same thing. If not, and Creek redshirts, just insert Jeremy Hollowell in his stead. I wish we could extend the games this year to like 70 minutes just to watch the expression on the opponents faces as we continued to sub in player after player better than any of the starters on their team.

    Legal studies major … I can’t wait until I get in a car accident and I get to tell everyone that I’m getting sued by Will Sheehey!

  • SCHoosier

    Keep taking it to the hole Wil..and work on that jumper at all ranges. He will be the best 6th man in b-ball this year.

  • MillaRed

    Not sure why we would deviate from the 4-5 combo of Watford and Cody? Two 1st team all-B1G candidates that took us to the Sweet 16. Something has to give at the PG position if the starting five changes. Just my opinion.

    2012 Final Four PGs “listed” height….

    Baylor – Pierre Jackson 5’10”
    Kensucky – Marquis Teague 6’2″
    Syracuse – Scoop Jardine 6’2″
    OSU – Aaron Craft – 6’2″

    We will be fine. Looking forward to seeing Craft try to lock up on Yogi.

    mo cant redshirt twice he did last year

  • ScoopGeoff

    What final four is this? Pretty sure it was UK, KU, UL, and OSU…
    Siva – 6′
    Taylor – 6’3″

    I can see the future “law battle”…
    Will Sheehey vs Ken Nunn
    Two Bloomington institutions, and according to the scorer’s table “Ken loves IU Basketball”.

    After hearing that my thought for a slogan for the season was “the defense NEVER rests”

    Anyone else notice the two older guys he mentioned by name as leaders? Hulls would be a given, but the other was Elston. Far cry from his perceived persona, isn’t it?

  • iufan4life10

    Height at the point guard position is not nearly the same as it is in the NBE (National Basketball Entertainment, I refuse to call it otherwise). I don’t see any PGs in the B1G taking Yogi down on the block to post him up. The only guard I saw doing any of this last season was Jordan Taylor. As you stated, what Yogi lacks in height he more than makes up in speed. Also if someone does start taking him on the block we have the ability to zone.
    Yogi – Oladipo
    Watford – Zeller – Hollowell

    Interesting. Based on the little snippets so far from workout the lineup seems to be headed this way:

    Center: Cody plays heavy minutes at the 5, Jerkin hopefully will be able to give him a breather and fill in when Cody get’s into foul trouble.

    Guards: Hulls shooting skills alone will keep him on the floor to space everything out and then you factor in his ball handling and leadership skills, he’s highly important. He’ll bring the ball up when needed but it seems like we’re headed toward a 3 or 4 guard rotation and you can’t really label them as a 1 or 2 because they should be able to distribute or score equally well. The other 2 are Victor and Yogi of course and then Remy a wild card. The football team could use Remy and I bet he’d do pretty well. Ron I just haven’t heard anything about yet with regards to how he’s doing versus the other IU guys.

    PF: CWat plays heavy minutes at the 4 with Hanner and Elston playing when needed. This takes pressure off of Hanner which is perfect.

    SF: To me that only leaves the small forward role open for either Will or Jeremy to fill. We can’t go wrong either way really. Jeremy is probably the second best shooter on the team behind Hulls and Will is probably the second best defended behind Victor. So if Hulls is on the court you need Will in, if Victor is in then you need Jeremy’s shooting. Damn this team is going to be good.

    I don’t see Creek playing until he proves he can defend at a high level, I think that will take until later into the season.

    two of these point guards weren’t in this years final four. I understand what your saying i was just trying to say that the only option teams will have at creating a mismatch, is putting a larger point guard on yogi, which i dont think will work anyways due to yogi’s elite speed.

  • I think other teams will have to worry more about what mismatches IU will be causing them to have this year.

  • HoosierDavey

    Where are the banners? Looks more like Mackey than Assembly without them.

  • marcusgresham

    Nah, there are lights on. If Mackey were any darker and drearier there would be stalactites hanging from the ceiling.

  • IUFan87

    I know it was depressing to watch the Hoosiers before last year but Elston has been one of the Leaders on this team after his freshman year. About this time two years ago he was calling out seniors on there leadership ability’s and not showing them the ropes when he got there and that it wouldnt happen again to any freshman coming on the team. I know we got a lot of talent this coming year but dont jump the gun on this guy cause he wont lay down and let know one take his spot in the line especially his senior year. He is the hardest working player on the team and is a great just dont have the athletic ability as the others but he is strong

  • MillaRed

    Sorry wrote this in a hurry. I think we will be fine with the height of our guards. That’s my point.

  • HoosierTrav

    thats sort of what i was getting at… in a roundabout way.. touche sir touche

  • CreamandCrimson

    I think Watford is probably the second best shooter on this team (Etherington would probably factor in a bit as well). I certainly wouldn’t put Hollowell ahead of Watford as a shooter heading into the season.

  • IUMIKE1

    I liked Chronic Hoosier’s take on Ken Nunn & just how & how much Ken Nunn liked IU bball. Sorry but that one word he used with “ing” on the end of it can’t be used on this site.

  • I hear ya…I think this year and for many more the Hoosiers will be dictating the action and match-ups. This year’s edition will be a dynamic bunch.
