It's a lot like we mentioned with the Reds for years, if everything has to go exactly right in one year, you've probably got a bad plan. What a program needs to do is replenish its talent with a consistent run of 4-5-6 man classes. Some of the talent will not work out, some of the talent will skip to the NBA after a year or 2 or 3 and some of it will develop over the course of 4 years.
Then it all comes down to how well each group meshes together and of course a little luck.
The whole "were better off now than we were 5 years ago" line of thinking is getting old. Your IU basketball, you supposed to be good. It takes 1-2 years to build a club from nothing to something, especially with IU's pedigree.
IU may have tough sledding next season. Losing Hulls, Oladipo, Zeller and Watford is going to be a tough task to overcome. The only guy currently on their roster who has a chance at becoming a B1G award winner next season is Ferrell.
