The Bottoms Line Podcast: Season Preview of #1-ranked Indiana, Plus Big Ten Talk

In the first episode of The Bottoms Line College Basketball Podcast for 2012, Andy Bottoms is joined by Alex Bozich of to discuss #1-ranked Indiana, plus some of the other expected heavyweights in the Big Ten.

In addition to discussing Ohio State, Michigan, Michigan State, Wisconsin, and Iowa, we cover the following questions with one of the most knowledgeable sources for IU hoops info:

  • Looking back at how far things have come in just a few years, what moments stand out to you as turning points (other than Cody coming to IU)?
  • When looking at this year’s team, one of the big questions is around the starting guard spots with Yogi and Jordy. How do you see it playing out at the start of the season and how might that change as things progress?
  • Sheeladipo – Will and Victor are some of the unheralded guys coming in who really helped to change the attitude. What do you look for from them this season, particularly Will who was hindered at times by his ankle injury last year?
  • With injuries to Elston and Hanner up front, who do you look for to step up since that is one area where there is a little less depth?
  • What do you expect from Creek this season?
  • Outside of adding bulk, what can people expect from Cody this season? More faceup jumpers or other additions to his repetoire?
  • Any other players you expect to stand out for IU based on their play in the offseason or even the first couple scrimmages this year?

About Andy Bottoms

While Andy was born and raised in Indiana, he would like to point out that he grew up shooting hoops in his driveway and not against the side of a barn like you see in all the March Madness promos or in the middle of a field like Jimmy Chitwood. Andy ranks among the top bracketologists according to the Bracket Matrix and has provided his projections to Fox Sports for the past three seasons. When not compiling excuses for missing work during the NCAA Tournament, Andy enjoys spending time with his wife and two daughters. He is a proud IU graduate and co-hosts The Assembly Call postgame show following every IU game. Twitter: @AndyBottoms
