With the end of the regular season upon us, the guys take a look back at a disappointing final week, recapping the losses to Nebraska and Ohio State. Following that, the analysis turns to the recently finalized Big Ten Tournament bracket, and the implications for IU's potential path to a postseason berth. We talk about the necessity of dispatching the first opponent, and then the possibilities of knocking off Purdue in aquarterfinal. We also talk about what it would take for the Hoosiers to secure an NIT bid, as well as the fallout from the NCAA/FBI scandal and how (or if) it might affect IU basketball past, present, or future.
Host Stu Jackson is joined by Bloomington Herald-Times IU beat writer Mike Miller to discuss the Hoosiers' outlook heading into the Big Ten tournament, including who needs to play well for them and what it's going to take for them to take to the weekend of the tournament.
TheHoosier.com's Jordan Wells is joined by Rivals contributor David Sisk to talk the latest in New Albany five-star Romeo Langford's recruitment, plus what he's seen from both the Hoosiers and Vanderbilt this season on the court.
Galen and Scott are back to recap the week that was in IU basketball, breaking down the victories over Illinois and Iowa. We look ahead to the Nebraska and Ohio State contests --- does IU have a chance in either game? How about both games?
We also talk about postseason scenarios, laying out the farfetched path IU would need to take to make their way to the NCAA Tournament, and the far more reasonable path to the NIT. Finally, we throw some Romeo Langford talk into the mix, and look ahead to the potential 2018-19 nonconference schedule.
There were a lot of angry tweets and accusatory message board posts after Wednesday's home game versus Illinois, and all the negativity was directed at the student section, which had some notable holes in it. This wasn't the first time in the last few years that we've seen attendance issues, so the big question is --- what's the deal? Is this a huge issue? What is causing IU students to not fill the gaps in the stands as everyone had grown accustomed to them doing over the years?
To try to answer these questions, we brought on our good friend Chronic Hoosier to have a detailed discussion about the history of the IU student ticket allotment, the changing nature of the fan experience in Assembly Hall over the years, the current factors affecting student attendance, and the long term prognosis.
TheHoosier.com's Jordan Wells is joined by contributor Jim Reamer to talk in-state rising targets, the improvement in the current IU team, how big of an impact New Albany five-star guard Romeo Langford would make and more.
On this special Sunday Night live edition of CrimsonCast, Scott and Galen break down the past couple of weeks in IU basketball, and tackle a host of issues and topics. Is Devonte Green's elevated level of play here to stay? What is the ceiling of this IU team the rest of the way? Is the NIT in reach, and what can they do if they get there? Does Juwan Morgan have legitimate hopes at making an all-Big Ten team? That, plus a full breakdown on the upcoming offseason, and lots of listener questions, on this episode of CrimsonCast.
Host Stu Jackson is joined by former Indiana guard Errek Suhr to discuss the Hoosiers' season so far. Suhr, who serves as the color analyst alongside longtime voice of the Hoosiers Don Fischer, talks about his impression of IU to this point in the season, going through a coaching change and how that impacts players' roles and team chemistry, what's made Juwan Morgan so effective this season and more.
Host Stu Jackson is joined by Brian Neubert of GoldandBlack.com, the Purdue site on the Rivals/Yahoo Sports Network, to preview Sunday's game between Indiana and No. 3 Purdue in Bloomington. Jackson and Neubert discuss how center Isaac Haas replacing Caleb Swanigan in Purdue's starting lineup has changed the way the Boilermakers are playing this season, the growth of Purdue sophomore point guard Carsen Edwards, if the current stats were expected based on how Purdue head coach Matt Painter constructed the roster through recruiting, what Purdue needs to do well and how it has to limit Indiana, and more.
