Landing Zeller would be huge. Him going to UNC will be heartbreaking
I'd love if if he gave both IU and UNC the big FU and chose Butler but I don't think so. I do think it's going to be IU though.
Well if he wanted to play 20+ games against a bunch of glorified high schoolers, then I guess Butler would be the solid choice.
1 hr away from "the decsion" lol
Cody Zeller is going to Indiana.

Yup, just saw the live feed. Dude's going to Indiana.
Thank God, the state isn't going to riot tonight.
the feed is on comcast local or on ustream
I'm only a psuedo-IU fan (didn't go, but many in my family have), so I'll just say that I'm happy for you guys and I'll definitely be interested in seeing how good IU becomes.
Tom Crean is locking down those borders. Yogi Ferrell...you're next.
Zeller said he was going to call Ferrell and tell him to come to IU!
Zeller is the number 3 trending topic IN THE WORLD on twitter. What up Hoosier Nation? Nice to see you again!
Onward you cream and crimson, for the glory of old IU!
Indiana, Our Indiana, Indiana we're all for you!
The dominoes are definitely starting to fall into place.
However, he wasn't bringing in elite level talent (whether this is due to his recruiting abilities or because he was an Marquette is a separate issue).
When a coach has the level of success Crean did at Marquette without bringing in top talent (for whatever reason), I am skeptical of the premise that he wasn't as good at coaching as he was at recruiting at Marquette. This is not to say that the premise is false; rather, I am just stating that the fact Crean had a good deal of on-court success without much recruiting success does not evidence your premise.
Okay, but watching the Hoosiers play half-court offense with four guys on the strong side of the court is a strong piece of evidence.
Even if there is a player that is "lost" in the offense, you'd think they should have enough of the court spacing rules drilled into their heads to realize "hey, I shouldn't be on the strong side".
Be glad with what you have IU.....:)
I go to IUPUI so I'll go ahead and root for Zeller and wish him the best of luck.
However, something inside of me wanted him at Butler to see him rep an Indianapolis school.
Oh well, still a better choice than UNC!
This was awesome news. 1st Perea for 2012, and now Zeller next year! If Yogi comes that's 3 5 star players in 2 years. Don't forget Harris as well!
Crean keep doing your thing!!
The question with Yogi is when, not if, he commits. I'm guessing within the next month.
Congrats guys. Always hate to see local kids go ACC.
As much as I hate to lose Cody, this is a great pick up for Crean. He better pick up a final four in the next 3 years or UNC is going to be back to dominating those Indiana recruits in no time.
I hope to see IU resurge, and I think a 2012 UNC v. IU matchup in the ACC-Big 10 matchup is coming.
My pot-stirring comment for the night: For his draft status, UNC would have served Cody better.
My pot-stirring retort: What college you go to really doesn't matter with your draft status. Calipari's kids aren't magically enhanced by playing for him--he just recruits elite players year in and year out. Ditto for UNC, Duke, etc. I'm sure the coaches help a little, but not as much as is commonly believed.
