    Nice podcast guys. Appreciate Zach’s measured thoughts on JBJ’s recovery from ACL surgery. Also agree with his contention that this team will go as the frontline goes. Regarding Coach never having a frontline oriented team at IU, I would say don’t forget the ’11-12 team with Zeller (6-11′), Watford (6’9), Pritchard (6’9), Elston (6’9), Sheehey (6’6) and VO (6’5). Frankly, I’ve forgotten how that team played.

    The answer is: with a lot of heart, but not as much talent as this current team has. With the exception of VO and CZ, that team you speak of had a lot of moxie and some talent, but this is probably the best front court CTC has ever had at IU.
