    Here's the spin you will hear out of Hoosier circles the next 6 months: Jonny Marlin is not your run of the mill walk-on. He started--as a true freshman!--for a Division I team (IPFW) before transferring to IU. Word from insiders is that he has been excellent in practice and is a very capable ball handler. Not only that, but Stanford Robinson is something of a combo guard like Remy was--and he is much higher rated coming out of high school! He played in the DC area and at Findlay Prep so his competition has been top notch in high school. So he can handle the ball and play the role Remy did at a higher level. We will be fine.

    That is exactly what we will hear and while there's varying levels of truth there, it remains spin. If Yogi goes down, this team is going to suck.

    I know that harping on Crean gets old, but this coming season is a season where we need coaching to deliver some victories. Our roster won't be as good as what we had the past two seasons, but it also won't be nearly as bad as what was here in Crean's first three years. I guess we'll soon find out what life is like without Zeller.

    Honestly, the move that would make the most sense since it seems inevitable that a scholarship is going to open up is to comb the market for a senior transfer with one year of eligibility left. Go for someone who can at least masquerade as a ball handler. That way you bring another veteran to the team and only lock up a scholarship for one year. On the other hand, I'm not sure how many guys would want to transfer for their last year of eligibility knowing playing time won't likely be plentiful.

    Stanford Robinson was brought in to play the point when needed. Worry about your own damn team before coming on here and criticizing the IU roster.

    No kidding. If any team loses arguably its best player and initiator of the offense it will struggle.

    There is a difference between struggling and sucking. I am saying that IU would suck if Yogi went down due to the lack of any other discernable ball handlers on the roster. However your condescension is, as always, greatly appreciated.

    You've really got to shape up in a hurry. You are taking "unnecessary" to an entirely new level.
    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

    I remember when he proudly posted a picture of his Sweet 16 ring on Instagram for everyone to see and the ensuing national mockery when Deadspin got ahold of it. He never really struck me as the type of player who knows what's expected at IU.

    Seems more like Crean or Glass or whomever it was that decided to make the rings didn't understand what was expected at IU.

    The coach/athletic director shouldn't have put the young man in a position to get mocked like that. They are the ones who should know that handing out Sweet 16 rings at a place with IU's history is a bit too much. It's not like we're Florida Gulf Coast.

    I wonder about that.... Or if Crean told him he likely wouldn't get the minutes he might've expected for some reason.

    It seems odd he'd be a transfer from the outside looking in but I wouldn't be surprised to know there is more going on than meets the eye.

    Here’s the full release from IU media relations:
    Indiana University men’s basketball coach Tom Crean has announced that guard Maurice Creek will graduate next week and will not play for the Hoosiers next season. He will look to play his final season immediately at another school and begin work on a graduate degree.
    “With his graduation coming up next week, Maurice and his family have decided to pursue an opportunity where he can find the type of role that would provide him the minutes he desires and is accustomed to,” said Crean. “In all my time as a coach, I have never witnessed someone overcoming the adversity that Maurice had sustained during his time. His attitude, ability to continue to work and his passion for the game of basketball have never wavered. He has been an integral part of our basketball family and will always remain that in our eyes and and should also in the eyes of Hoosier Nation.”
    During his career with the Hoosiers, the Oxon Hill, Maryland product averaged 7.2 points in 54 games including a 31-point effort against Kentucky as a freshman.
    “I want to thank Hoosier Nation for their support during my four years at IU,” said Creek. “I am grateful that Coach Crean gave me the opportunity to come to Indiana University. As much as anyone, he has helped me turn from a boy into a man. I feel like I would have a better opportunity for more playing time at another school where I can be eligible right away.”
    With Creek’s departure, Indiana currently has 12 scholarship players on next year’s roster and just two — Austin Etherington and Will Sheehey — are upperclassmen.

    They knew darn well what was expected at IU. That ring celebrated all the hard work that involved getting IU back to national relevance. It deserved recognition.

    The ring is a token each player can keep with them forever.

    You can keep memories forever.

    It's not an issue. I'm just not a fan of handing out rings for anything less than championships, not when you are a program like Indiana. I'm all for commemorating the resurrection teams, just wasn't wild about the rings.

    too bad all the injuries turned creek into a shell of his former self but i am glad he is opening the door for someone else who can actually contribute as he clearly did not have it anymore but hey, he still got his degree.
    i wonder if that guy who almost went to northwestern is still available?
    i heard he was pretty good and believe he plays the point which is a spot where we are in desperate need of solidifying.

    The final ESPN 2013 BB rankings are out and Luke Fischer skyrocketed up the list. IU has four players ranked in the top 100:

    #13- Vonleh

    #34- Fischer

    #54- Williams

    #99- Robinson

    Michigan has two recruits ranked in the top thirty.
