    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.

    That and if all he yearns for is the unwavering devotion of graphic-er.

    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)

    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.

    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!

    Yogi already talked to his dad and said they "needed to talk tonight." I knew this was a big deal locally, but nationally this thing is getting press. I'm shocked. It's the most excited I've been about the Hoosiers in quite some time. Assembly Hall is going to be rocking tomorrow for the opener.

    I must not be speaking in English.

    I'm going back to the beginning.

    I said, "at Marquette, they often asked why Crean wasn't as good at coaching as he was at recruiting."

    And everyone jumped all over me that he wasn't a great recruiter. I never said he was.

    But I did dispute the notion that he was a lousy recruiter because he wasn't getting top-25 recruiting rankings. In part because Marquette should probably never expect to get top-25 recruiting classes. So even though he wasn't a great recruiter, he did a credible job of recruiting for Marquette.

    So he was an upgrade for Marquette. He may not have been great, but I'm willing to say he was a good recruiter.

    And after a decade of Mike Davis, Kelvin Sampson, and Dan Dakich, he's an upgrade for the Hoosiers. Its been a decade since we've have a coach as good as Crean. But when you've had Branch and Knight in your history, its okay to say that Crean is average.

    I think I'm gong to give up on this thread. Too many of you are talking in absolutes.
    For clarification: I didn't post the recruiting rankings to prove Crean is not a good recruiter.

    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".
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    He isn't as bad as you are making him out to be. I mean come on, the guy comes in here with below average talent and you expect to evaluate his coaching abilities accurately. I mean Tubby Smith couldn't have coached this team to a .500 record.

    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!
    Stop quoting people I have on ignore!

    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.

    True. But most junior high coaches don't run an offense with four players on the strong side of the court.

    Its just spacing 101.

    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.

    Neither him or his brother are NBA players, imo.

    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.
