Look for Crean's stockpiling of talent to backfire.


Assuming no changes, in 2012 IU will have the following players who play essentially a wing position: Creek Sr., Olidapo Jr., Sheehey Jr., Etherington So., Patterson Fr. and Hollowell Fr. In 2013, subtract Creek and add Hartman and Davis. And that's not including Watford in 2012 whose natural position is the 3 (He'll probably transfer). That's 6 players for 2 positions in 2012 and 7 players for 2 positions in 2013. Barring injuries, none of these kids are redshirt candidates. In fact, given their rankings coming in, I'm sure each expects mucho PT right from the get go. You probably already guessed my point. There is no way everyone will be happy.  I predict 2 to 4 of these players will either decommit or transfer at some point. I've got to give Crean credit. He convinced all of these kids that they would be THE star.
