    Haven’t had a chance to listen yet, but I wanted to jump in with this anyway;

    Jordan Hulls is one of my all time favorite IU players, and his last two years are among my favorite IU seasons of all time. Beginning with the WatShot game, it felt like something that had been lost for a very long time was found again. It’s why, among other reasons, I was not as upset as others at the loss to Syracuse the following year. That group had done much, and had done it with such good spirits, that I just couldn’t be too down when it ended.

    Obviously things did not go from there as I — or anyone — anticipated. CTC could not maintain the success he had with that team, and was brought down by a combination of poor play, declining fortune on the recruiting trail, and a serious disconnect between him and the fans. But make no mistake, things are about 1000 times better now than they were in 2009, and CM has a real chance to build us back up. That we are in such a position even now, four years later, is a real testament to what Hulls, Zeller, Oladipo, and the rest of that bunch achieved.

    Another good listen. Always great to hear Jordy. I am still confused by Robert’s situation. Alex is standing by his sources and story but Robert isn’t saying anything other than he is still in the draft. I also enjoyed some of the speculation about lineups.

    Jordy Hulls is a class act. Glad to hear he will be around the campus this summer!

    If Robert stays in, I wonder how quickly Tremont Waters will wait before declaring for IU. Just a hunch, as it seems odd he’s not picked anyone at this late date – Like he’s waiting for something to occur.

    My family is originally from Bremerhaven so I’m really hoping to make it over to an Eisbaren game at some point this upcoming season to show some support. The team seems to be middle of the pack in the BBL most years, but maybe they step it up and make a playoff run for 2017-18!

    I wonder if the visa situation is difficult for players there, like they can’t bring family over with them? I have to think that makes the long-term prospects of being there very difficult.
