Re: Noah vonleh is a Hoosier 


Huge news!! I am trying to figure out where Tom Crean is planning on playing him. here is my guess for the starting 5

PG- Yogi, Remy
SG- Sheehey, Robinson, Creek
SF- Olidipo, Williams
PF- Hollwell, Perea
C/PF- Vonleh, Fischer, Jurkin

Anybody have any comments on Sheehey starting next year? I think he should earn it by then and the guys I have 2nd string are fully capable of providing the spark Sheehey has last year.

Either way, looking like the top 5 teams once again... I really don't see Olidipo leaving for the NBA but that is just me. His shooting isnt there

I have to admit I am concerned with how the scholarship situation is going to work out

RE: Noah vonleh is a Hoosier 


maybe the contract extension swayed Vonleh....he knows who his coach is going to be for as long as he wants to stay at IU because Crean's not going anywhere.....just sayin.

Make no mistake, this is a huge get for the program, and a huge victory for Coach Crean. Congratulations are due to the entire Hoosier Nation. Things will work out, even if Cody comes back. How sweet would that be?

How many teams in the nation wouldn't trade their problems for ours?

And for the glory to come.

Well with Watford, Elston and Hulls being gone after this year, that makes 3 spots. And Etherington transferring is pretty likely, I'm surprised he didn't do it this past season. That gives us 4 spots. And unless Zeller goes early or Oladipo or someone, Davis or Hartmann might be the odd men out.

Thanks, and I believe we'll be congratulating the Wolfpack on BeeJay Anya any day now. Big get for you, too, but we're very, very happy with ours.

Mo Creek has a kid on the way and will have his degree. He goes to Europe or gets a job to provide for his family. He wont be back.

Re: Noah vonleh is a Hoosier 


Of course it's not too hard to speculate. Here are a few others: Yogi to NBA, Elston transfers to Purdue, two recruits change their minds, Creek retires from basketball. 

There are several possibilities including Mr. Crean asks someone to leave, as happened before.

The big catalyst here is what this current team does. If they live up to expectations and make the Final Four (or hang #6) then you may see a few jumps to the NBA (Zeller and Oladipo).

If Not, some things to consider...
-Zeller could leave regardless (even though I personally think he realistically has his eye on graduating early and could stay a 3rd year if IU doesn't capitalize this year)
-A transfer due to talent overload. Not to speculate too much here, but I start to wonder if Etherington has concerns over minutes.
-1 of the 2013s doesn't sign. Given the influx of some top level talent (Vonleh, Williams, Robinson, Fischer) it may have an impact on the previous commits. That is information that Crean is privy too, but we don't.
-Very unlikely, but if the crunch is only in 2013 then an in-state player playing as a walk-on for a year is a remote possibility.
-Creek. What kind of player will be Creek be this year is one of the big wildcards of 2012. Creek will need to sustain a 35 game season to get a med redshirt. If not, he may be in a Roth situation. He put his body through the ringer for this program, but also ate a few years of Scholarships so it is an interesting scenario if a Med Redshirt is under consideration. (Note: these Scholarships are 4 years, Creek would obviously be very eligible for a 5th).

No matter what happens, too much talent is a great problem to have. I do feel for some of these kids if their plans are affected, but let's be realistic... IU has scratched and clawed to earn their way back to the top. In a program like this, it's going to be somewhat cut-throat when there is a high demand for top talent and so few schollys to go around. This fight for minutes can be a major motivator for players, but can also be a burden for players who just can't find their niche on a ultra deep team like the 2012 squad and apparently the 2013 squad too.

I think it's safe to say the 2013 class is done and now it's wait and see. I wouldn't stress over it, enjoy this current year and let both the season and future roster play out because they are somewhat linked given Zeller/Oladipo/Yogi's draft prospects (Yogi is obviously way too early to forecast, but his game definitely has next level potential).

As for Starting lineups...
I'd leave Vonleh at the 4 to keep him a little more mobile based on videos I've seen. If Fisch can develop into a 'poor mans' Zeller then all the better. Luke has stated he wants to model his game after Zeller and looking like him doesn't hurt either.

Yogi / Remy / Robinson (may be a Combo 1/2)
Oladipo / Davis
Sheehey / Hollowell / Williams
Vonleh / Perea / Hartman
Fischer / Jurkin (obviously Zeller if he stayed)

Thanks as well; I follow IU a bit as my Dad graduated from there after being a LaPorte Slicer!  Plus NC State has a historical connection to the state of Indiana from legendary coach Everette Case thru to present day Scott Wood (Indiana high schooler with a sweet jump shot).  Case pretty much laid the foundation for Tobacco Road basketball.
