CrimsonCast Ep 589 - Perhaps It Doesn’t End

February 20, 2019

Who would've thought that we could squeeze 90 minutes of podcast out about a team that's lost 11 of 12 games? We take a whole bunch of questions from Twitter and live chat, talking about everything from the problems with IU's offense to concerns with the roster to long-term prognoses for recovery. It's a long and winding conversation, and you'll probably find things in it that you both agree with and disagree with.

The 2018-19 season has been the cause of some soul-searching on the part of the IU fanbase. CrimsonCast delves into the larger questions of the program as a whole by turning back the clock and looking at the antecedents that led us to this point.

We also discuss whether this is a one-time event or something that Indiana can build on, and what indicators IU fans should be looking for to judge such things.
