The Assembly Call is the place where IU fans across the globe hang out after every Indiana basketball game. As soon as every IU hoops game ends, The Assembly Call begins -- delivering insight and analysis about that night's game and looking ahead to what's next for the Hoosiers. The Assembly Call is hosted by Jerod Morris (who also hosts Podcast on the Brink), Andy Bottoms (the world's #1-ranked bracketologist), Ryan Phillips (columnist for The Big Lead), and Will DeWitt (host of the Bears Brothers). During the offseason, we host special edition episodes every other week and re-run classic episodes from our archive.

A Must-Listen for IUBB Fans
Whether you're a diehard from back in the Knight days or just becoming acclimated during the Crean era, The Assembly Call should be required listening following every IU basketball game. Host Jerod Morris does a great job of setting the table and weaving vital questions into the discussion while keeping an eye on macro-level trends for the team/program. Ryan Phillips and Andy Bottoms provide top-notch analysis and examine the trust/criticism dichotomy of analyzing in-game coaching decisions. In particular, Andy's lineup breakdowns have added significantly to the post-game discussion, but be sure to subscribe to the email list for detailed day-after analysis. In sum, a good podcast will recap the game and performances, but a great one will also entertain and critically examine Indiana basketball. The Assembly Call is a great one.
