Who we are
The Assembly Call was founded in 2011 by three IU grads who had never meet each other in person: Jerod Morris, Andy Bottoms, and Ryan Phillips.joined us a few years later and has become such an integral part of our team that it’s hard to a remember a time when he wasn’t involved.
Our goal has always been the same: host conversations about IU basketball that balance our unabashed fandom with objective, in-depth analysis.
We go live immediately following every IU men’s basketball game and also host a show every Thursday night. All of our content is available on the Back Home Network YouTube page.
A few years ago, we joined forces withand his premium IU Film Room content to create one of the most comprehensive sources for deep dives on Indiana basketball that you’ll find anywhere.
