This week on Assembly Call Radio, we discuss the recent impact of De'Ron Davis, highlight some keys to beating Minnesota, and try to fix Indiana's issues with poor starts and lackluster home crowds. And much more. On the mics: Jerod, Andy, and Coach Tonsoni (and then #ChatMobber Megan for the post-show festivities!) • [00:28] In Segment One, Jerod uses his Banner Moment to highlight De'Ron Davis' remarkable run of assists over the last three games. Then the guys dive into Indiana's keys for beating Minnesota on Saturday. • [16:49] In Segment Two, the guys discuss Indiana's poor starts to first halves and, since the calendar turned, to second halves as well. What can be done to fix this? We offer our ideas, and Coach shares some insight from his experience dealing with it on his own teams. • [31:17] In Segment Three, we address the most common question from this week: what, if anything, can be done to address the lackluster atmospheres Indiana has had at home this season? It's a complicated question with a multi-layered solution. We share some of our thoughts. • [45:51] In Segment Four, we answer your questions: Who is our IU valentine? And why does it seem like Archie is getting outcoached so often during Big Ten play? And then hang around after the final segment for a special AC After Dark guest appearance by Megan, who recounts her experience with Comfort Option ... which eventually leads to some feisty Coach remarks that will almost assuredly come back to haunt him as sound drops in future episodes. All of that and more on this week's edition of Assembly Call Radio. Want a better night’s sleep?
