In the latest edition of Heard on The Hoosier, TheHoosier.com staff teams up for a recap of last weekend's Nike EYBL action in Westfield. We discuss the play of 2020 3-star forward Matt Cross, 2020 four-star point guard Caleb Love, 2020 3-star point guard RJ Davis as well as other IU recruiting targets that were in action.
Scott and Galen get the band back together for a mid-May CrimsonCast. We talk about IU basketball striking out in recruiting and why it probably doesn't matter, and field questions about the 2019-20 non-conference schedule, injuries, and what John Beilein's departure from Michigan might mean to the long-term status of the Indiana basketball program. We then shift gears to football and field a lot of questions about 2019 win total projections, winning road games, coaching, and the quarterback situation.
What can IU learn from Purdue? GoldandBlack.com Publisher Alan Karpick Talks Beer And Wines Sales At Ross Ade
Indiana Athletics will administer a beer and wine sales pilot program at Memorial Stadium beginning this fall. For perspective on the move, host Stu Jackson welcomes Alan Karpick, publisher of the Purdue Rivals site, for insight on what led to the Boilermakers' athletic department making the move, whether there was any pushback to the decision two summers ago, the ensuing financial impact and more.
We celebrate the start of May by busting out the podcast equipment and doing a rare football / basketball / alcohol combo pod. We field several football questions, including spring game stuff, starting QB thoughts, and what IU needs to do to get to a bowl game (Note: this is not a repeat from last year, or the year before, or...yeah).
We move on to basketball and discuss the acquisition of Joey Brunk, the lineup implications of the current roster, and how Smith and Thompson fit into the fold next year. We also discuss recruiting a bit, and then finish off with Galen yelling about why Arizona and LSU are being smart about things.
Finally we discuss the recent allowance of alcohol sales at Memorial Stadium and what it means --- and finish off by answering a question about our "perfect" Bloomington day and what it would consist of. Fun pod, a good way to kill an hour and a half.
The first and only spring evaluation period for college coaches for this recruiting cycle takes place this weekend. TheHoosier.com staff discusses key IU basketball recruiting storylines being monitored across the adidas Gauntlet and Nike EYBL sessions in Dallas and Atlanta respectively.
TheHoosier.com's Stu Jackson and Jon Sauber team up to recap what they saw at the adidas Gauntlet Midwest Regional Qualifier at Indianapolis Warren Central the weekend of April 12 and look ahead to this week's Indy Heat Gym Rats 2019 Shootout at The Basketball Company in Indianapolis.
The adidas Gauntlet circuit makes a stop at Warren Central High School in Indianapolis this weekend for its midwest regional qualifier.

Reunited after nearly a month, Galen and Scott look back on the 2018-19 IU basketball season and discuss what they make of it. We talk about the dueling arguments of what happened in the season, as well as where things went wrong. We also discuss what "reasonable expectations" for next year will (and should) be, and the interesting parallels between this season and year 3 of the Crean era. We also field some audience questions about recruiting, and talk a bit about the surprise reappearance of Bob Knight on campus.
