    This guy is a winner and even if he doesn’t hang a banner, he will leave as one of the most decorated Hoosiers of all time. I am grateful that he is playing for us instead of playing against him, like say ND. He is a very smart and talented person, and I will miss it when #11 isn’t in cream and crimson anymore.

  • TomJameson

    ^^^^ this. Well said sarge!

    Two points that stuck out for me. First, it’s about time the truth came out. Yogi is 5’10” not 6’1″ or 6’0″ as usually listed. And Troy “gets lost in the game”. Breath of fresh air to hear something other than the company line.

    Word. Despite the bad seasons, I have had an absolute blast watching Yogi play. The little grief he catches (in comparison to Troy and James) is still too much in my opinion. It pains me to think just how special of a career he could have had with better more dependable pieces around him. If he somehow makes it in the NBA I might have to finally pony up the money for league pass so I can keep watching.

  • SilentBob

    The listings come from shoes on. Everybody in college and the NBA is listed and inch or so above their actual height. Never seen 6’1 though

    Unless you are short in the 90’s. Then you shrunk somehow. Spud was 5’10 easy (I am 5’7 and he towers over me and I have stood right next to him). Weirdest thing ever. Okay – not ever, but still pretty weird.

    I like to think of this interview as “Taylor Rooks Talks to Some Guy and is Taylor Rooks Throughout (including lots of footage of Taylor Rooks doing things like talking and sitting there being Taylor Rooks).” Heaven help me.

  • vicbert caladipo

    I know that and I believe the only player IU ever had that actually was bigger when he was listed draft day/NBA was Calbert. IU media guide always listed him as 6-6 when he really is 6-7. This just struck me because that’s the first time I’ve heard someone say Yogi’s true height and I believe the ones saying he was 6-1 were in Maui. I’m also not sure Bryant isn’t 6-11 either. He looks much taller than CH and MB.

    Heaven help me as well(to get in contact with Taylor Rooks).

    muy caliente

  • Dagwoods

    Well spoken.

  • Young Hoosier

    Most decorated in what way? You can say he’s a “winner” but real winners male their teams win. That hasn’t been the case with him. Unfortunately.

  • Shaggy_C

    He greatly improved on a personal stat level (moving from freshman distributor to key go-to guy on the team his last three years) but you’re right, his leadership skills didn’t really grow the same way. He was in many ways the Yin to Jordy Hulls’s Yang.

  • WhatsUpKnight2.0

    YF won’t be easy to replace. next season we’re going to fully realize how much he helped this team. you can question his leadership skills, but you can’t question his heart. i think back to the msu game last year when he missed that free throw, how crushed he was. and it was either the game before or after where he missed a last second three? i dunno, but huge respect for his game, his toughness, and his desire to win. gonna miss this guy.

  • GaHoosier

    I will always remember Yogi for tipping Trey Burke’s shot that ulitmately rolled off the rim for the outright B10 title, at Michigan!
