IU's Blue Ribbon Committee led by Harry Gonzo

Before the Hoosiers even played their tournament game, McRobbie announced his 10-member board of alumni, faculty and AD staff members to lead the search .

The 3-time All-BigTen Biletnikoff finalist is also the Hoosiers' all-time receiving leader in touchdowns (36), yards (2,690) and receptions (186) AJ Ratliff - IU student finishing his final semester in Bloomington; one month removed from the Hoosiers squad and 4 yrs removed from Indiana's Mr. Basketball DJ White - the lone remaining recruit from the c/o '04 is this year's BigTen Player of the Year
