One of the interesting nuggets pulled from Dustin Dopirak’s Friday post over on the Hoosier Scoop discussed the top eight players in IU’s rotation for the coming season.

If you missed it, here’s the note:

Tom Crean reminded reporters that he has not seen Guy-Marc Michel play live yet, but said that he often asks his players who would be in their top eight if they had to make a rotation. All of them, he said, have Michel in their top eight.

One of the intriguing storylines heading into the start of practice, at least in my opinion, is the rotation.

On paper, you can make an argument for all 12 scholarship players having a shot to see significant time. But in reality, it’s rare for a team to have a regular rotation of players more than eight or nine deep, especially when conference play begins.

So, with that, we open it up to you: If you were to compose a rotation of eight players for the upcoming season, who would be on your list?

Bonus points for showing your work. Happy Monday.
