Following your Hoosiers is always more fun with friends. Come hang out with us after every Indiana basketball game, and every Thursday night, as our team of hosts -- Jerod Morris, Andy Bottoms, Ryan Phillips, and Brian "The Coach" Tonsoni dissect every angle of IU basketball, as we've been doing since 2011. We are equal parts unabashed fandom and objective analysis, with plenty of laughter along the way. If you're looking for knee-jerk analysis and hot takes, this is NOT the show for you. But if you want a show that isn't afraid to critique play while always staying supportive of players, then this is the place for you.
AC Radio: Talking Dane Fife, Kenya Hunter, and Yasir Rosemond
This week on Assembly Call Radio, we discuss the additions and changes to the coaching staff and Joey Brunk leaving the program.
It's Official: Yasir Rosemond is Indiana's 3rd Assistant Coach
On this special edition episode of The Assembly Call, Jerod Morris provides his immediate reaction to Yasir Rosemond being announced as Indiana's 3rd assistant coach. Then he discusses the retention of Mike Roberts and Clif Marshall and the impact of Joey Brunk's departure.
All that and much more on this impromptu edition of The Assembly Call.
Here is a link to the YouTube video with Rosemond giving parents and players advice for how to navigate recruiting in a pandemic: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IY1w75Eyab8
AC Radio: How Will The Pieces Fit Together?
This week on Assembly Call Radio, we discuss all the major news in IU Basketball this week. We go in depth on new commit Xavier Johnson and talk about all the players who are back at IU after removing their names from the transfer portal (and bypassing the NBA draft in Trayce Jackson Davis' case). Also, Dane Fife's addition to the coaching staff and Armaan Franklin's departure are touched on in what was one of the biggest news weeks for the Hoosiers we have ever seen.
Special Edition: Race Thompson is Back!
Did you miss us?
It only took one day for more good news to echo throughout Hoosier Nation, as Race Thompson announced he is returning to Indiana. What is the impact of Race's decision? How does he fit into the new style of offense we're expecting under Mike Woodson? And what do the lineup permutations start to look like?
Plus ... is it possible to have TOO loaded of a roster in Mike Woodson's first season? (No, of course not. Don't be silly.)
We also spitball a bit on Armaan Franklin's decision.
All that and much more on this edition of The Assembly Call.
On the mics: Jerod (solo for about a half hour), Coach, Jay, Scott, and Coach Marlow
Special Edition: Xavier Johnson Picks IU
On this impromptu, in-the-car edition of Assembly Call Radio, we break down the commitment of Pitt transfer Xavier Johnson. What does he bring to the table? What are the question marks? How might he fit with Armaan and Indiana's other returning guards? And much more.
On the mics: Jerod and Jay "Mediocre Question" Horrey
Emergency Pod: Fife, Lander, and Geronimo are Back!
On this emergency episode of The Assembly Call we react to the news that Dane Fife is joining Mike Woodson's staff and both Khristian Lander and Jordan Geronimo are returning to Bloomington.
On the mics: Jerod, Coach, and Ryan, plus special guests Eric and Ward from Hoosier Hysterics (who have unique insight into Fife and potential assistant Mike Lewis)
Way way good stuff.
Great content! Timely topics! Super knowledgeable hosts. Keep up the great work, guys! And thanks!
IUBB’s Top Pod
This is a must listen pod for any IU Basketball fan. The content is well developed, timely and honest from true Hoosier fans. Their generally fair and well reasoned with their analysis leaving the hot takes for others. I never miss and episode.
I don’t get the people who give this show a negative review. Honestly if you don’t like the show then don’t listen to it. There are plenty of other IU basketball podcasts. Anyways for those of you that aren’t angry at the world or IU for hiring Archie Miller give this show a listen. The post game shows are solid and the Thursday show helps keep you current on all things IU without having to check Twitter all the time.
