As is standard protocol for the program, Indiana updated its basketball roster on Monday, the first day of classes for students in Bloomington.

  1. Did Morgan lose any weight in his big cranium due to ego shrinkage after draft readiness assessments? Just kidding….Hope he is meaner and eagerer. Is ‘eagerer’ a word?
    Very hopeful for a great season and best odds in years for a deep NCAA run. Love the size on this team…Love the balance and athleticism. Love the fact that we picked up the Saint Mary’s transfer ‘big’ with a nice stroke on the three ball.

    The only real question marks remaining fall into the intangibles of leadership/maturity …and whether or not we’ll have enough firepower/marksmanship to be consistently dangerous from various perimeter roster spots.

    Do have a feeling that this group will gel….They will be a dangerous team as the season nears March.

  2. I am curious to the effect Romeo’s height and weight changes will have on his game. Obviously, he has been working on this aspect and I’m sure S&C has played a big part in how the increased bulk was obtained.

  3. Ok, what exactly does a “Director of Creative Development” do for a basketball team? I am curious. His bio is strong.

    1. “Production” not “development”. Ok, I get it: marketing, branding, internet technology products for media and fans to consume. It is a new world out there!
