I agree and even with that talent we may be no better than 3rd or 4th in the B1G next year. The league is absolutely stacked.

One thing about IU though. Next year they bring in a talented recruiting class and lose only VJ3. It may be hard to keep their chemistry and integrate all those talented young faces that are expecting to start ahead of juniors and seniors. Crean will really have to coach well next year IMO.
