For those who have followed Tim Jankovich’s tenure as head coach of the Illinois State Redbirds, you have seen an ever-changing lineup void of any consistency.
This is not to say that Coach Jankovich has done a poor job by any means. He is regarded very highly in Bloomington-Normal and throughout the Missouri Valley conference. However, he does not usually stay with the same rotation from a game to game basis.
A lot of this is probably due to the inconsistency of young college players, and also partially due to the lack of impact talent that has plagued the Redbird at times.
Going into the 2012-13 season, every player could potentially return from this year’s squad (plus the addition of two freshman guards). It could be the year that the Redbirds return to dance as this year’s talented young team is gaining more experience.
I know that there is still time left in this season, and still a chance of making the tournament this year, but here is my projection of the rotation Jankovich will stick with.
