When Yogi Ferrell announced his intentions to return to Indiana for his senior season this past weekend, it solidified an Indiana roster that many people now think is a top-15, possibly top-10 team.
Combine Yogi’s return with the returns of Troy Williams and James Blackmon Jr., plus the addition of top-20 big man Thomas Bryant, an optimism is rightly running rampant about what the 2015-16 season could bring.
But red flags remain.
- Will this team defend?
- Will this team be able to navigate through adversity?
- Given the roller coaster that the Crean Era has been, is it possible that success this season could actually be a negative for the long-term interests of the program?
We address these red flags, discuss what the starting lineup and rotation is likely to look like, and of course revel in the optimism that has everyone so excited about what next year could bring.
All on the latest episode of The Assembly Call.
